This post is intended to dishearten the readers; no bull-shit here.
Unfortunately, with all the advertising opportunities that are readily available to the public, bloggers, content writers, and pretty much anybody who gets online, you can sell ads no matter what you write and who you are! Advertisements are not the problem, it is the ones writing the content for manipulation that are to blame for these lackluster, supposed things they call “articles.”
It gets to the point where I hate saying the words ‘writers’…’article’ or calling information ‘content’…… Is it? Really? What are you trying to sell???
Ad Revenue has not only ruined quality, it has ruined a significant portion of the (www.) world wide web. I’ve seen way too much crap, incorrect info, spam/scraper sites, poppycock, hogwash, and baloney that has been published, approved and showed up on ‘search results’ from major Search Engines, to know what I’m saying is true.
We have too many people trying to make nickles & dimes while typing about things they either know nothing about or simply by typing about nothing.
Occasionally, I’ll amuse myself and search on the web for stuff that I’m either highly knowledgeable about or have firsthand experience in, and I’m stricken & sickened with the erroneous information that materializes in front of me…but never shocked (anymore) by the repulsive amount of advertisements that lay before my eyes.
Look, I know the inner-workings of some things, especially Ad Revenue, and there is only one definite, precise, absolute, utter way to extinguish this dilemma between keeping the web content high-quality or letting the Ads continue to be set aloft into the blogosphere and everywhere else on the web, which diminishes quality……and that would be an intense screening of the “publishers” so they would get their “works” examined by the companies paying for the advertisement to begin with. Don’t let just anyone try to sell ads; this free-for-all is exactly the problem! You got idiots talking to the same ilks, while giving a lot of us more to filter out, all in the process of “searching on the web.” Yeah, I’d hate to be the spider responsible for this mess.
Most of the ad-pushers (not all of them) taint the quality, misinform the readers and give the ones that actually know, more bull-shit to sort through. Good job, to all of y’all desperate fucks without a laborious task at hand; lets just sell ourselves to the bottomless pit of the advertising abyss.
I know too many people that just type anything in their supposed article, and get frantic over silly “keywords” for their “SEO” that it just makes me sick! What are you, a freakin’ robot that uses unintelligible jargon? Do you even know what you’re talking about, do you even care, or are you more worried about some stupid Search Engine’s Algorithm in hopes you’re found on some moronic Search Query so you can sell ads to misinformed people!?
Sometimes, I get so disgusted with these imbecilic, doltish freaks, it makes me want to have an internal & external combustion that sets my selective, (chosen upon sight) advertising adversaries on fire!
Who knows, maybe I’m writing this just to possibly sell some ads in the present or future. I did put this post in the ‘rant’ section, so I’m definitely trying to be relevant, pertinent, and germane……you know, for SEO reasons, right? Ha-ha!
Update: Some time early in 2011, Google did execute what they called a “Panda Update” that helped lower the rank of content farms and certain types of scraper/spam websites, so this helped some, but the crappy articles with poor information is still ranking high on some sites. By the way, if you do decided to go with a PPC revenue, Google AdSense seems to be the best; cheers!
