    I'm new to this forum, but I've noticed one thing that really is getting on my nerves.

    Why are there so many providers saying "High quality English content" despite having multiple spelling and grammar mistakes all over their salespage?

    Look, I get it. Not everyone speaks English as a first language. That's fine. But you couldn't be bothered to pay $5 on fiverr for someone to proofread your salespage? C'mon.

    You expect me to trust you with the fate of my online business?

    It's not 2005 anymore. Google can tell when a backlink is coming from a quality source and when it isn't.

    Do you really think the only reason your PBN's are getting deindexed are because of footprints? It's so easy to distinguish between broken English and fluent.

    Stopped reading there.

    EDIT: Read the rest. You should be thankful. Sellers grammar in sales pages tell the truth about what you get more than the words themselves.

    Also, they more than likely outsource it. Yeah, may look bad, but focus more on reviews than the grammar of the page, as someone else is probably doing the legwork. Or maybe someone else created their sales page for them?

    I've seen some of the worst infographic-style sales pages ever right here on BHW.

    you should not decide everything from a single sales page! :)

    It is funny though when the BST is about writing HQ native articles and then the sales page has multiple grammar errors in it :D
