This is a great article that was linked from Daring Fireball about the worth of SEOs. It should be required reading for all working on the web, IMNSHO.

Really interesting. And look at the enormous amount of comments on the article! It’s an understatement to mention that this is a hot topic…

One point appears that “good advice is obvious”. Many pay for
“obvious” good advice in all industries.

One way of getting traffic is to stoke the fires of controversy. If I
was syndical I could say the writer knows exactly what he is doing.
Its a common technique to refresh a blog readership once and a while.

The real nugget I see is “It’s not your job to create content for
Google” However, its a very hard juggle to risk abandoning all
thought of Google and just aim at your audience.
