The SEO Importance of Proofreading

We all know that proofreading is an important issue, not only for the enjoyability of the post or website article, but also for ensuring the overall quality of of the text for SEO purposes.  Just using a spell-checker and scanning the tet will rarely get rid of all of the mistakes and even grammar software are limited as to what they can catch.  Often commputer spell checking and grammar checking software will flag lots of perfectly fine issues or will totally miss grevious errors of usage that any native speaker or normal person would catch immediately.

The teacher and youtube commentator Taylor Mali illustrated this wonderfully in hos video:

Not only is this video humorous, but it ceratinly makes a great point that proofreading is a necessary thing if we want to ensure accuracy.  Of course, we typically miss many of our own errors.  It is better to have an outside person to do our proofreading, someone who was not involved in the original formulation of the sentences.  Here at WrittenPerfect.com, we have specialized and general editors ready to help you find all of your errors, correct them, and improve your writing.
