BuzzFeed, one of the largest sites online, understands the importance of writing content for users. Like Distractify and others, BuzzFeed concentrates on creating articles and titles that resonate with human readers to attract clicks and shares. Though they place less emphasis on writing content with keywords and long copy for search engines, their traffic continues to grow as does social engagement and content interaction.
The important takeaway from this article: Spend more energy creating great content for your users and customers and worry less about stuffing keywords and phrases for SEO. This doesn't mean you have to dismiss an SEO strategy entirely - it means you may want to focus your efforts elsewhere.
