    I have been trying to find a writer to write content for my customers websites. Site quality stuff, not tier X quality. I have tried many of the marketplace vendors for months now, and most "free article offers", and all I get is sentences on a page.

    I recently bought 3 700 word articles, and cannot use any of them.

    In this batch:
    This is the opening paragraph for an "article" titled "The importance of monthly SEO reports for small businesses"

    ""There are rumors saying that SEOs intended for small businesses are getting more and more complicated each day. These are not true for it works the same way round actually. Just recently, it has been said that Google updated the algorithm for ranking. This is termed as the Penguin 2.0. Because of the mentioned undertaking, SEO activities are to be impacted big time for sure. The reality is that there is only limited resource for owners of small businesses. It can be quite annoying to learn that they can actually be on top of myriad things. Their business can. To further understand this though, the importance of monthly SEO reports for small businesses have to be realized though."

    There are little gems in there:

    "Google is concentrated to the elimination of content thin and ineffective sites. Penguin, Panda and Venice have been introduced already."

    and

    "Come up with an SEO on-page. This is perceived to be a necessity so it is a must. However, no one should ever get this wrong because this is only the start. "

    In one case I asked for a list of "10 reasons", and gave them the #1 reason to use for my customer and that instruction was completely ignored.

    So what I am asking for help with is does anyone who knows of a writer who can write for an American audience? I always pay the vendors price and give them plenty of time and instruction, and typically use 700 to 1000+ word articles.

    I have wasted too much money in the market place to keep trying services, and for that matter looking at "free articles" so I am looking for a recommendation.

    Can anyone recommend a writer other than themselves?

    As a matter of interest what are you intending to pay and what sort of money did you pay for those obviously spun articles ?

    If you are looking at client site front end copy you need to be paying North American or British writers to write unique copy. The papermill bsts on here with hundreds of customers are all tier two web 2.0 and blog filler only.

    Guys I have used and recommend: Iamnre
    Guys I have heard good word back on: JustJared}{ Aluminium.
    Guy with a new BST who looks like he knows how to write: Lost Connection.

    Any of my other writers ive picked off from iwriter and freelancer.

    Dont bother with 3-4$ per 500 words spun crap for filler work. Buy them in bulk off Driulis at 20c an article and they read better.

    I have absolutely no problem paying premium rates.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I was hoping someone could recommend someone they have used with good results.

    I appreciate it.

    Well, you should look for writers on elance or freelancer. Good content won't cost less than $10/500words. If you need it polished and flowing - then it's about $20/500 words. I would suggest going for $10-15. Look for a native speaker. I had some good experience with elance, but I needed very high quality articles, thus I was paying $25 per article 500 words long.
