I have been following blogs and SEO Chat. It appears to me that everyone is so obsessed with SEO that they are not concerned with the usability aspect of it or how it would benefit users. No one is bothered about substantial SEO content that is relevant and engaging. There are blogs that are only interested in ads. I don’t remember the last time I came across a good site selling widgets or anything else for that matter. Do you think the best response for these people is to create a quality site and forget about links and search engines?
