    I enjoyed this article. I myself structure articles for the search engines. I have learned something along the way though. It is more vital to have visitor quality content then just focusing on seo. Actually, good content, which is developed for your visitors is exactly what Google and the other major search engines are looking for.

    The Google algorythm keeps changing. Quality content will rise to the top and always be aprt of a successful campaign.
