An author said to us, (I’m paraphrasing) “I don’t like you guys because you allow experts of more than one topic of expertise to post articles on your site. If you don’t stop this practice, I’m leaving”
That’s like saying, “I don’t want to be included in the search engine indexes because my competitors are listed there also” or “because non-experts are in the search engine indexes also right next to my listings”…
EzineArticles.com is not a site of “Prima Donnas” or Article Divas that want exclusive rights for us to only include authors who are experts only on ONE single topic. Geez.
I think what this author was really irritated about, but he couldn’t find a way to articulate it properly… is that he considered himself an article expert ‘purist’ and that keyword/seo authors are ‘less than pure’…
In other words, he was saying, ‘if you don’t write from personal expertise, then you are “less than me”.’
While EzineArticles.com is chucked full of expert authors who write from personal expertise, we also have articles by authors who are experts at writing articles. See the distinction? It’s subtle.
