SEO Friendly Articles Decreasing the content Quality

    As a writer I feel that before writing the article there is an picture going on the mind on which we ready to write the article or content. We are not concentrate on any particular word or keyword during the content writting.

    But when i have hired a SEO content writer to write the articles for my site which is related to 'speech writing' then he designed the article by stuffing the keyword unnecessarily which not making any sense.
    SEMrush
    So i concluded that is the seo friendly articles means less information or not for human it just for spiders....please suggest your views

    Read your post again.

    You're a writer?

    As for your question...

    The term "SEO content writer" is a bit silly, perhaps stupid, because in actuality, an article needs only a few keywords in it, which, is put in naturally.

    For example, the article could be on dog training. The title will have that term, keywords, along with that term being repeated at least twice naturally anyway.

    Just write the article naturally. In this regard, in most cases you do not have to focus on SEO.

    That's it.

    What you need to worry about is focusing on getting backlinks related to the said article.

    That, and the age of your site (how long you have been indexed) is what ranks you higher and higher.

    SEO doesn't take a whole lot of thinking, and there's nothing complicated about it.

    Something else that might help you out. If the article is about `dog training,' apart from using this phrase as a keyword, you might also consider using `dog training videos,' `dog training books,' `dog training classes,' etc. The trick lies in selecting and incorporating key-phrases that are searched the most.

    what your writer did is regarded as keyword stuffing, which is a black hat SEO!! Google looks through websites content and checks for this......if a website has a higher percentage of keywords per page then 5%, google will potentially give you a penalty and ban your website from google!

    Ryan you are correct about keyword stuffing, but the 5% is way too high for Google. That would mean 25 times in a 500 word article. Google really does not need more than 1.7 ratio for a keyword to have a strong effect. And the point about using a 3 or four words for a keyword subject is well made. Just a couple minutes spent, reviewing an article and changing dog to dogs or pups if appropriate helps. Unless you keep a balance between your readers interest and your buyers quest for readers, the article is not going to get read very often. However keyword stuffing is done just as often by "white hats" with too limited of a vocabulary.

    Don't forget about the Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI); which is where Google looks for other words related to the keyword(s) rather than just keyword stuffing.

    Not only does keyword stuffing make you article lower quality and hard to understand; but it is not what Google is looking for when it comes to LSI.

    Plus, writing naturally and using LSI makes your article read better; which is the reason you should be writing the article in the first place.

    For SEO, I find that the keyword in the title, once at the beginning, and once near the end of the article is just fine...

    Some good advice on this thread. Keep it looking natural, don't attempt to stuff the keyword in too often, and remember that sometimes a 'cat' is called a 'moggy'.

    compose a 400 word article not considering the stuff words, so you can insert more keywords from it, from 2% keyword density on the entire site would do the job.
