    Yeah, back in the day it was Ok to just put together some stuff and people would just come to you at the end of the day. Nowadays, it’s a bit tricky because, first, there are tons of blogs and bloggers and – second – it’s not really enough to just create some piece of content (however good or not). Now you’re supposed to do proper keyword research and structure your post in a way that is both in-depth and has your target keywords. That said, it’s better for the end user actually. It just takes heaps of time now.

    • That’s exactly right, Richard. You also want to make sure that you take your user’s search intent in consideration as well. If your seaerch query is more likely to be used by a person who just searched for some how-to info, it’s better to give that info right away and then try selling something.
