Is search engine optimization killing professional writing?

When writing professionally, we should be focusing on conveying information in a clear manner. But I feel like search engine optimization, which jams keywords into your article, is taking away any finesse or flow to our writing. It would be like jamming a flashlight into a sculpture. Sure, more people would see it, but would that really make it better? The direction online writing is taking professional writing, is less about quality, and more about buzz words. Writing talent will cease to be needed to get views. Does anyone else feel this way?

    I was about to pose a question on keywords and SEO and how this has reduced writers creativity when your answer popped up. You've explained it very well here and i hope all these mess will be cleaned up sooner than later. Thanks.
