Why Medium is failing me as a writer
Hamza Malik

SEO can be counter-productive because google does not like people playing games with their system.

I think the missing piece of Medium is the lack of curation. Social media have tried to get around investing in editors, which costs money, but just as with print media, someone needs to be sorting the wheat from the chaff or you end up with the situation you are writing about.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
