It is called Internet Marketer Attention

Deficit Disorder. Or for short I.M.A.D.D. -


Check yourself… you may have this, too!

If your day is like mine, you may have the same disorder!

Writing with Keyword Density in Mind

Unique content’s ability to produce higher placement in search engine results is one of the chief reasons webmasters hire content writers.  In order to maximize the effectiveness of content in this regard, one must write with keyword density in mind.  If one approaches the work properly, they can produce material that is optimized for both readers and search engines.  As a content writer, you must be well-acquainted with some of the guiding principles related to optimizing the work your produce.

Keyword density refers to the number of times an identified keyword appears within a given piece of text relative to the entire length of that text.  It is usually expressed as a percentage.  Although there are many perspectives regarding what constitutes an optimal keyword density, most would agree that a rate somewhere between 1% and 5% is usually adequate.  This means that a designated keyword will appear in an article one to five times for every one hundred words.  If one is seeking a density of approximately 1.5% for a five hundred word article, the keyword should make seven or eight appearances.

Writing Content and Eating Lamb

by Carson Brackney

I hate lamb.  I don’t like it with mint jelly (double my displeasure).  I don’t like the lamb ribs at Jackstack’s.  I’d rather spend my life choking down NJ diner scrapple or San Antonio street fair tripe tacos than to force another spoonful of mutton past my tongue.

Worth Reading–Content Mills, Google and More

I’m not interested in jumping into the ongoing war about content mills and pricing for freelance writing today, but I will point you toward a blog post on the topic.

Carson Brackney’s post about content mills and those who hate them is worth reading.  Even if you don’t agree with him 100%, I think you’d have to admit he makes a few good points.

If nothing else, he gets bonus points for mentioning Denny’s, West Side Story, endongo lyre music and Tiger Woods in a single post!
