Hi there Mark,I think people can make it seem a lot simpler than it is when writing content.The other members are right, you need to achieve that balance between SEO and good content, however unless writing is a skill the balance can often be difficult to achieve. I can certainly see the point to your question.
These days, we have so many other areas that will assist with SEO, obviously social media being a significant one. I would always strive for the seo/content balance, but if it is a struggle write for the visitor (and remember to keep it between 80 and 200 words for optimal indexing).
All the best MarkTracey
