    [UGC] Why SEO matters for user-generated content | Cyclone Ranger
    Lately Ive been surprised to hear people say something to the effect of "when it comes to social networking and UGC, SEO doesnt matter" in a number of different conversations. UGC, including media uploads, blogs, profiles, comments, message boards, and the like, is nearly free content. In addition to being nearly free, UGC is also generally low quality and has relatively limited appeal. But 1 million ugly MySpace pages dont lie - people want to create and consume UGC.

I’m noticing an increasing effort, particularly with UGC, to use software tools to enhance the quality of content that is produced as opposed to try to add value around it (such as through additional reading links, etc.). At Plinky , we are taking a very different approach with the same goal–help people create better UGC.
