    Guys, are you using handwritten articles or spun articles on your PBNs? Articles are damn freaking expensive and if you're using handwritten ones, how much are you paying per article? I know the average rate is $5USD for one article but if you multiply it by 100, its going to be $300 and damn freaking expensive. What do you do?

    That rate is still the lowest if you ask me. In my experience, some high quality contents cost around $10/500 words. if you really want to have a high quality site, then you need to invest smart. If you have a $100 budget, then invest it on 10x $10 articles which will help your site rather than investing it to 20 x $5 articles. Trust me its well worth it. I even had some clients who kept coming back asking me to write for them because they liked my content but I had to refuse since I am quite busy during those time.

    Depend on how quality do you want to maintain your network.
    I use spinrewriter to rewrite all my network content.

    They create 97%++ unique content + Readable + copyscape passed.
    I am ranking well, even my client here in BHW say so.

    You don't have to use good content, for your network. But you need to use ORGINAL content.
    It's work for me, and my client.
    Why not try it ?

    If I need English content for PBN I take a foreign language article, translate it to English with G translate, and then rewrite it a bit to make it more or less readable. I do the same when I need an article in a non-english language, except I usually pick one from Ezinearticles.

    sometimes I use spun content, sometimes I buy articles, sometimes I write them myself. For lowest quality handwritten content I used to pay average 1$ per 100 words. For good qulity there are no limit in price range.

    I don't think it matters to be honest. I always go the hand written just to create jobs and be on the safe side. Writers need milk money too. Keep spinning for the PRL articles for your tiers.

    I counted how many articles i need which was one keyword per article and realised that i need $1,000 for 200 articles. Wow, do you people really throw this much money into the PBNs? I have got 30 sites and I limit 3 keywords per site

    I always use handwritten articles. I takes my about 5-10 minutes pr 350 word article - so I do not want to pay others for it. It's boring as hell, but much cheaper.

    Also, I find that spinning an article makes it un-readable. But I'm not from an english speaking country, so I guess it isn't comparable.

    You are what you eat and so is your website.
    Feed it quality, it will be quality, feed it shit, it will be shit. Same for networks and so on.

    If you are only looking for stats then sure, build spun content and gsa links.

    It really depends on how important your network is to you, but typically you would want to give uniqueness more importance. Original articles would seem to be the best option, though spun content may offer better value for your money. The more important your domain, the more expensive it may be and the more careful you may want to be about your content.

    Hand written content, I either write it myself or when I'm busy I'll pay $1 per 100 words and get some really nice high quality content.

    DON'T use anything other than quality authority content, Natasha Nixon provides the best.

    Have a few deals with writers in the UK on Fiverr (told them to contact me via email by uploading an attachment) and they write 5 articles 5 sites each daily.

    IF you can't make $300 from 100 articles on a private network you shouldn't even own one.

    To answer your question only use unique content and not spun garbage

    5 multiplied by 100 is 500 actually not 300 :D
    To answer your question, it doesn't really matter as long as the content is unique. Your PBN is made of sites which are used for link building anyway, you don't expect any visitors on site so the content does not have to be wow!

    On the other hand, if you get a manual review though by Google and they find out your PBN it may be a problem if they see only spun garbage on your PBN and flag it immediately so be careful.

    Always manual written articles on all 1st tier properties (sites that link directly to main site).
    Usual price is $1 per 100 words. So, you will pay $3 to $7 for articles from 300 to 700 words each.

    So, yes - you need to invest like in any other business.
    Internet business is like any other business. You need to invest and take risk in order to make profit.

    I don't mean to nit-pick, but we went to different schools... at my school, $5 x 100 is $500 :p

    To the point of your question, however, I think that quality content on PBN sites is very, very important. Heck - why not go all the way, why not create truly valuable sites, that encourage people to naturally link to them? That, my friend, is a powerful machine...
