Due to the growth in outsourcing projects, SEO companies in India are increasing on a significant way. These agencies offer a pool of services to support your website and to help you get business leads. Reliable and cost-effective, SEO companies with their planned strategic steps, help increase quality traffic to the websites. SEO experts can aid to successful online business and help attain popularity and visibility.
Here’s an analogy to web content: early television. Some of the shows were silly, vapid, shallow and poor production quality by today’s standards, and would never get funded today. On the web, by contrast, it costs almost nothing to publish content, so all the amateur work sloshes around side-by-side with expert content. We have more opportunities to get our work published, but that doesn’t make us entitled to have our work read. We have to earn eyeballs, just like any other form of published media.
Thanks for writing this Greek Geek. I really feel strongly that every writer who is struggling on $5 for 500 words of content should be running their own monetized HubPages site! What you have written here is exactly the reason why. Employment by SEO content junkies is going to be shortlived. It is important for writer’s to perfect their craft and they will rise to the top as you say. The skill of creative writing is incredibly undervalued at the moment. Things will have to change and they are if the job listings for SEO copywriters have anything to do with it. I’ve already seen salary jumps from 16K to 22K in the UK in the past year. To keep a good writer you have to pay. Great hub!
I have actually made the bulk of my online income by applying SEO to my content. That is, I have meaningful content, but I structure it in a way that search engines can easily identify my topic and send the audience that would be linked in interested in it. It’s a little like making sure a book title and cover are audience-appropriate and visible. I make much less money on articles I write without regard for SEO, because readers don’t find those articles as often.
You are sooo right. All of us though, have been guilty of publishing content that is mediocre. I suppose it is all about what you want to do. If you want to sell products it is sometimes not possible to go unique as all you can do is describe the product or its uses. Come to think of it, you could try and get some unique uses for it, that may not be to bad an idea. SEO helps a bit, but in the long run you have to keep your audience entertained. You have to get their attention if they are going to read what you have to say.
Ooooo, excellent. Google doesn’t tell us about upcoming updates (And I’m still puzzling over a major traffic shift on November 17, evidently one of the unannounced updates) but it so often drops hints in advance for those paying attention. I remember being shot down in a fairly insulting manner by someone just a week before the first Panda update for daring to suggest that Google was about to introduce some kind of algorithm factor that evaluated overall domains, not just pages on an individual page basis. Of COURSE Google would never do that, I was told!
