Writing SEO Content

I've just had my first experience with writing SEO content for an actual employer of sorts and I didn't like it very much. I was expected to produce between 5000 to 7500 words a day and almost all on the same exact subject with very little difference between them. Talk about mindless. Problem was that I started with the stomach flu on Thursday, the day I was hired and by yesterday was out of commission in bed. OY! Bad timing. So this guy got all pissy with me and so forth. I sent him what I had and he told me not to bother any more. Actually, that's fine with me. When I produce content, I prefer it be about subjects that interest me, first of all and something with more of a variety. So think carefully about what you really want to do with your writing and ask questions when applying for such a position. I learned my lesson on this one, that's for sure. Has anyone else had an experience like this?

Oh, i experienced this too. My "employer" was nice though. I was writing 500 word-articles x 5 in a day (did that only once). About credit cards and debt, i don't even have a credit card or debt. I should follow the directions, how many seo phrases to put in the article, the wordcount, the grammar, the deadline. It was sickening, i decided to quit then. But, i'm glad she was nice when i mailed her that i would quit. I really learned a lesson about not just saying yes to every opportunity. But i value that experience. :)

Pardon my ignorance but what does SEO stand for?
