Taking extreme positions on Users versus Search Engines makes for good link-bait but a balanced approach makes for more effective SEO.

If you read both articles carefully, you'll see that that's not really the debate.

I read both articles very carefully before writing this, Jill. I still believe most readers will see that as the debate.

I've refrained from speaking out on this, but Jill and I talked at SMX East and I support her desire to speak up.  Rand's post was confusing and left me stunned because I know his company to be proponents of usability and seo.

Thanks for also covering this Barry.  Education is still necessary. There is no divide but only experience.
