Why Are GOOD Web Writers Hard to Find?

You are THE expert in your field, but you are not an expert writer.

  1. Finding someone who knows as much as you do
  2. IF you find your expert he must also be able to write website copy like a champion

Keyword density is dead.

Writing for search engines is dead.

Search engines make their money by giving people who search something useful. Searchers are sick and tired of reading drivel that is stuffed with keywords.
