I recently came across an article on The Guardian about how SEO experts are ruining the web by making commercial low quality content appear on top of Google search rankings, denying users the pleasure of enjoying good content. You can find the article here.
The article is based on the premise that “only” low quality “commercial” articles are ruling the web. The real “poets” are losing out in this battle as they are not using sophisticated SEO tactics.
The argument makes me feel that anything that is commercial is bad, anything that is competitive is bad.
