FOR TRUE SEO, REMEMBER THE HUMAN ELEMENT

A colleague of mine (a fellow writer, but not a website copywriter or SEO specialist) recently said,

SEO writing has deteriorated into basically choosing appropriate keywords for a subject, and then using them in vaguely coherent sentences to score highly in searches.

He went on,

In this day and age, in which people hardly READ anymore, what’s the point of strategising, optimising, carefully inserting and tweaking? Who cares if the content is largely vanilla, instead of deeply significant, client-specific copy?
