Gerd Leonhard has a thoughtful essay on the impact of what I’ll call “presentation algorithms” on the production and quality of content. He writes:
… Content that is produced only because of keyword popularity and because eager and / or desperate producers (no blame there, btw, just stating a fact) are willing to work for exceedingly cheap rates may bring in the immediate bacon but in my opinion will not last in terms of continuous popularity and therefore in long-term revenues. And if they do, great for them - but it does not mean that all content production will move in this direction. …
The essay is short but is rich with links that add important depth. Take the time to check them out also.
