anyone care to share who they use?
I use myself. I can not trust others too much.
I have the same problem, give me a shout if you find someone good!
have you tried spinblitz? i've read some good reviews
Is that a member here? or a site? I have too many projects floating around in my head to actually work on writing, so I would love to find one that I would only minimally correct the info
Didnt like it, i have spinner chief and it seems to be the best if you wana do it yourself.
I still write myself, haven;t got money to outsource the article
It's a matter of "Horses for Courses".
If you want 100% perfect English grammar there are generally only 2 options
a) Pay an educated Brit or North American around $10 / 500 words
b) Do it yourself.
The drawback in both the above cases is the "creative" limits.
How many different articles can you write on "Car Rental" or "Liposuction" ?
Once you manage 3 you'll be pushing the envelope to think of something new to say.
The alternative is to accept article quality that passes the test of unique ( Copyscape as an example ) and is "readable" but not totally grammatically perfect.
Most articles written by non-native English speakers are in the "readable" class, and you can expect to pay $1.50 - $2 per 500 words.
Providing they are "readable" ( not total gibberish ) it is very unlikely the SE algos will penalise you for using bad grammar, and there is a school of thought that insists even gibberish is better than nothing, provided no "inspectors" come visiting.
You only need to read some of the posts and comments on high ranking "pop" sites (music and fan for example) where totally unintelligble street argo is the norm to wonder wether gibberish is "kool".
So .. If you need lots of content you need to think "automatic content generators".
Because there is only limited control over the assembly of the output you will get some articles that are perfect grammatically and some in the "readable" category.
The advantage of automatic content generators is the speed of output, and in the case of Spinblitz the automated posting functions you get after creating the output.
It creates unique spintext articles which get stored on your PC.
The output can be in several different formats like .txt, .html, SENUKE, LFE or PLIGG, which saves you hours of copying.
The latest version has 2 Wordpress posting functions.
Then you can choose to post either POSTS or PAGES, selecting how many "spun articles" to post, over what period and what frequency.
Obviously to post on WP, you need the Wordpress blog to start with, but the rest will work with any type of new or old domain.
You can try it out free at : http://www.spinblitz.com
It's because no 1 is willing to pay for real unique content, I find people want the best content but don't want to pay for it, like i tell everyone if someone offering u $2.00 per 500 words for articles don't be mad when u get $2.00 results.
Try outsourcing the articles. You will have time to face some other things.
I have found out you get what you pay for.
I am with you on that I use spinblitz like crazy for my second tier stuff and by that I mean my links to my links.
It is an awesome tool for generating postable "stuff" that you can add links to in LFE and Senuke etc where you can stick a few anchor text links.
I am doing a few thousand a week and it is definitely working and now it posts too so it's like an extra LFE for free
That's more true than you know Goblin. I had a small feud with a BHW member because I was going to charge him $.70 per 100 words of unique, SEO content to place on his site. I normally charge between $.10 and $.13 per word. I thought I was doing him a favor because of me lowering my price to him, but quickly learned that he thought I was way over priced
It's nothing to pay an educated and experienced writer upwards of $15 per 100 words of totally unique, non-existent, nowhere else will you find it articles or reviews. People here at BHW are just use to the $.60 per 100 words created by article spinners in my opinion (I do not know of Anyone with an education in writing who charge this low for their writings, not in America anyway). No offense to those who offer that type of service as it is valuable in it's own right. But like Goblin said, if it costs $2.00, you are going to get content worth $2.00 and so on.
What about fiverr?
Fiverr has some good writers, you just need to get their samples and check their authenticity before buying their gigs.
Problem is people tend to want to pay $1-2 for an article. I could go down the street and flip burgers for more than that for the time it takes.
If someone paid me $10 for a 500 word article I would probably do it, though. Maybe.
Mike2000 on this site does real good work... I've used his service several times and have always been happy with the turn times and the quality.
Here's his BST thread:
Those 1 - 2 $ articles are usually written by people in 3rd world countries. And if you find a born and breed American who is fluent in English vocabulary and grammar that charges that little bit of money, then he/she is desperate or has no talent. Simply put, you get what you pay for.
Personally I found that Google loves totally unique content. So for me, it's in the quality, not the quantity. I know some people have had success with crappy content in quantity and I have nothing against those folks, but with the way Google is threatening with their "Farmers" algo, I wouldn't doubt that sites which contain articles that are only partly unique will eventually get hit with the algorithm monster too and become ghosted sites.
The Phillipines has some great and inexpensive article writers. Just post a "wanted" ad in Craigslist (Phillipines) and ask to see sample work.
