My point is, this is a lot like content. You can have the greatest content in the world written by the greatest writer. The fact of the matter is google does not know that. Sometimes its sad, but that content needs to be performing at a large theater which in our case would be a very high authority website.
You have a great point.
Web content is just like any other "product" out there; It doesn't matter if it is great if you don't get it in front of the right eyeballs - or in the case of the violin player, the right earballs.
The vast majority of people that day had no clue what was going on, they were on their way to work, oblivious to something as mundane as who was making all that noise on the violin.
Aside from death and taxes, there is one other certainty in life: Some people will pay for what others pay to avoid.
