But what qualifies as original content?  In the insurance world, reputation and credibility matter.  Many websites employ subject content specialists. A content specialist is and individual who develops content for the web in a variety of ways, generally involving writing and editing, as well as certain amount of web design in some cases.  The specific requirements to become a content specialist will vary based on the type of website for which an individual is creating content, and whether or not a great deal of specialized knowledge is required.
