It is Journalism

As suggested by the name, a writer’s job is literally that, to write. That said, there are a lot of different things to write about.

If you would like to see for yourself you can visit her Google+ at This provides a good example of what an editor/writer does. A writer will usually write things like plays, scripts, dialogues and the like. But there are also writers who write for websites online.

Those writers are employed to add relevant content to the websites in question. This often involves the use of a keyword which is included in the content that they write in order to increase the ranking of that website in search engines like Google and Bing. This is also known as Search Engine Optimisation and though there are many topics one can write that fit into a general area, there are also a lot of technical forms of writing that only with sufficient knowledge in the department can one really hope to write about it.

Some employers could ask for qualifications in some fields that are more intensive before allowing one to write on them in their favour. The editor and content writers then need to make sure that the writings and the websites can connect or else the effort is futile. The higher a website ranks in the search engines, the more likely it is to gain traffic and through this traffic can a website begin to generate revenue. On one hand, you could say that the job of content writing is equivalent to journalism as the content they write really is about contributing articles to an employer
