    I have been offered by someone a huffington post contributor account for $500
    he says once I buy the account, I can write any article and link to any site I like
    I find that hard to believe. is that possible?
    also, I wonder if it's worth it, since you can become a contributor for free? so the question is, how hard is the application process? if it's really hard to get accepted, I might as well just pay the $500
    if it's easy I will apply and avoid paying $500

    no, he says it's not blogger.huffingtonpost.com
    I specifically asked. he says it's the actual domain and not a subdomain

    You want to make sure it is that before moving forward. Maybe have him show you some of the articles he has posted as well as team view with him logging into the account.

    The Contributor accounts, at least the one I made, posts straight to the www instead of a sub domain.

    Had people offer me them for $2-3k a few months ago so sounds good if its legit. Noticed the price for links on huffpo has gone down recently though so maybe its easier to make contributor accounts now

    Huffington post accounts can be more expensive than this. I was trying to sell mine this morning as prices went down sharply. If it's legit it seems ok to buy.

    Almost every site on the website accepts contributors for free. You just gotta offer real value.

    guys,
    how difficult is it to become huff contributor for free? I hear you can apply with a sample article and if they like your article, they will make you contributor.
    I guess this guy is offering to bypass the application process for $500? is it worth it or can i just apply myself and get accepted and avoid paying $500?

    From what i know, contributor posts are nofollow and non-indexable. (Think of it like a backstage)

    Only when a huffpost editor sees and features your post in the respective sections (which may or may not happen at all), then you will get indexed and follow links.

    If it's legit then with a good strategy you could get at least 3X your investment back within a month.

    I wouldn't pay that much unless I know for sure I can make that money back in a couple months.

    Can someone weigh in on the point made that contributor posts don't get indexed? I looked at harry's posts as a contributor and they were not indexed in google.

    The odds of them getting indexed are quite low... you have to get the attention of an editor in the form of a vey high quality article, a lot of eyeballs on the article, lots of social shares and who knows what else.
