We've heard about factories pumping out SEO articles, and now they're in my face. Inescapable: truckloads of garbage web content churned out by slave web content writers. I picture them caged like battery hens, pecking randomly on keywords in a database, assembling sentences in their gut and laying 100 'articles' per day.

I feel sorry for these writers and I'm sure no amount of training from would make the slightest difference to their lives or the quality of their writing.

But perhaps these queasy-making quasi-articles are produced by machines or software, not writers, in which case compassion is misplaced.

Last week I had idly set up a Google alert for the very vague term 'web content', and now every daily email includes alerts like this:

Jeff Atwood and other web commentators fear Google is broken. If so, SEO article factories helped to break it.
