    Hi Marion

    I enjoyed your post! It made me realize that when I am writing, that I should be focused more on how my post or article comes across to the person who views my post rather than being more concerned about what the SEO’s think!

    Hi Marion

    I liked this post! It reminds me of what just happened at WA in the way the metrics changed in how we are ranked. Sometimes I believe when writing our posts, we need to focus more on how we interact with each other from a human point of view, rather than writing in such a way or manner where it appears we are writing to a machine or analytical search engine such as Google. At the end of the day, it is not going to matter what the machine thinks, but what the person on the other end of our post thinks or does!

    Your post also helpe me thinking more of how I write!

    Hello again. I recently commented on one of your other articles, and you recommended this one to me. I can see why. Very interesting subject. I do have a question though…

    So, often times if we title our articles with answers instead of questions, then we are totally ignoring the idea of using low competition keywords (phrases). Answers are typically much shorter keywords with a lot more competition. Do you think that no longer matters with the way search engines work now?

    • Marion says:

      Keywords will always continue to be important. After all, keywords are what people type into their browser’s search bar to find answers to their questions. But what is changing is the repeated use of keyword phrases as part of the articles which actually answer the question. Keyword stuffing is a thing of the past and is no longer relevant in today’s internet.

      In my opinion the only competition that really matters is what appears on page 1 of Google’s search results. Your article just needs to be better than any one of the top ten and you should get ranked on the first page. When was the last time you clicked over to page 2 of the search results?
