Why does so much web content SUCK? To find out, we need to question our perspective about content.

Content isn't a feature.

It's not "lorem ipsum" text. It's not something you "bolt on" after design is done. It's not even design or code or even plain text. Instead, content is about brands, audiences, data, systems, processes and workflows. In short, great content is all about PEOPLE.

Which means that content is an EXPERIENCE. Once we understand that, we can get to work on making our content BETTER. Better for users, for businesses, for communities... for a Better Web!

Want to know more about the design and concept of these slides and how I got them to be featured as "Top Presentation of the Day" on Slideshare? See my post at http://www.jonathoncolman.org/2013/02/24/why-our-content-sucks/

Originally presented at the SearchFest conference by SEMpdx in Portland, Oregon on February 22, 2013.
