Re. SEO I stumbled across this nugget from a recent Forbes article [1]:

"Beyond content, these same organizations are helping lead the way we 
find and consume information, driven by experimentation and 
understanding of social behaviors. In a recent Mashable story on 
social’s growing impact on search, Scott Havens, senior vice president 
of finance and digital operations at The Atlantic Media Company, claims 
“[our writers] are not really thinking about SEO anymore.” Bob Cohn, 
editor of The Atlantic Digital, backs that up. “We’re no longer writing 
to get the attention of Google algorithms. We’re writing to get you to 
share it, to digg it…We’re not writing for machines. We’re writing for 
humans.”
