I think this is a perfect image for separating SEO from content... Content is the meat, or main attraction. SEO helps enhance how the engines digest it.
 
SEO is the Condiment, Not the Sandwich
Of course optimizing for search is important, but it's not the only thing. It's humans that spend money on your products and services, not search engines. That's why optimizing for customers and opportunities is far more effective and sustainable.

Distribution and discovery are as important as creation. That's why a focus on content that's optimized for search, socialized for share, publicized for media reach and influencer activated helps those marketers who make the effort, differentiate and dominate in their market.

It's interesting how a slight shift in perspective can mean all the difference in how content based marketing performs. This post is about making each content accountable to discovery, experience and action (vs. just discovery). 
Whether your role is in search, social media, marketing communications or PR, the importance of content marketing is unmistakable. Brand content budgets an

Amazing photo by +Mark K. Daly
 
Thor's Well, Oregon
http://natureasart.photoshelter.com

This is an amazing geological phenomenon on the Oregon coast.  Long ago, the roof of a sea cave collapsed, creating a hole.  At high tide, water is channelled up through the hole with incredible force, spewing out the top like a geyser.  This well is incredibly dangerous - if anyone ever fell in, they would be killed instantly.  The suction power when the water recedes is extreme, and the entire well is lined with sharp mussel shells.  For this capture, I wanted to show the water receding back into the well. I used a longer exposure, to smooth out the water motion, and evoke the power of the water being sucked back into the well.  This is an incredible sight, and is so unique; I am very happy to have been able to photograph it.  This was actually a very challenging capture - I had to constantly clean filters and lenses of salt spray, and almost fell a few times.  Plus, just knowing that a few feet away was certain death made it a little scary.

In editing and pulling this together, I feel I have learned so much more than just being an audience member. I am so appreciative of everything this group of leaders do!
