    So I want a page for every city and town in my state (351 cities and towns) I want each page to have the cost to take a taxi there(I already have this part in a .txt file). A list of hotels/motels in that city and a paragraph about the city, maybe famous people from there attractions to see while you are staying there but with the focus on the keyword

    [name of town] taxi & [name of town] MA Taxi

    This is at best rewriting wikipedia with some copy and paste from other sites thrown in. I don't think its worth $5 per page or anywhere near that.

    Can I hire someone by the day from overseas to do this or perhaps use some software for it? Ideas?

    Just keep in mind, quality comes with a price. It all depends on what you plan on doing with the content, if its needed for your webpage or squeeze page, I'd recommend having a professional write it for you.

    It doesnt have to be fabulous really.. I created a post page for each city and town already and used the same article again and again and swapped out the keywords. Time and again the post cracked the top 20 for the search (because all the competition is weak as hell) So if I make the posts a bit more quality and pray G recrawls them I should do better.

    Each post would contain the following ingredients

    1)Price to travel there by taxi (again I have this already)
    2)couple hundred words about the history of the town, sites and attraction, famous people from the town if any.
    3)colleges and universities in the town if any
    4)hotels,motels,b&b in the town if any.

    Its not something that needs tons of research or someone with a masters degree in English Lit

    Its more or less rewriting wikipedia with some other elements tossed in.

    I've been seeing your last couple of threads go up and it sparked a question.

    Are people actually searching for the content your providing?

    I haven't asked you any preliminary questions, but are people, in the midst of things, actually going online and looking for how much it would cost to get to a neighboring city via taxi?

    I ask because every time I've traveled, I've never even considered going online with my phone to look this information up.

    The traffic amounts are not very high no, but you have to consider what i make if i convert one visitor. Even if I don't drive them personally it could be $10 in my pocket if only one person a year searches for that and I am #1 or rather the first phone number on the page. I go for being the first phone number on the page more than being #1.

    We had a client that ordered 30,000 articles for directory (similar type of order what you're doing) and we had a great price, he accepted the job...bla bla bla...I just wanted to say that even though this may look like an easy job, it is fucking tedious.

    I wouldn't take that job under $1,200 for 351 cities

    And then underneath your curated article about the joys of acme city...........Want a luxury Air conditioned cab ride to acme city...thats only $65 ?

    I really think its just a matter of mashing the content together on one page and the content is already somewhere else.. duplicate content doesnt mean what most people think it means imho duplicate on the same ip is bad

    If you take content from same niche from 3 different sources and stick in on the same pages its not duplicate content anymore. google is not skynet.

    But is the amount of work you're going through worth the possible income you'll be making if you convert that one person?

    There are certain businesses that are better marketed offline. I personally believe yours is one of them.

    Some nice flyers, banners and other media coverage around the actual airports with this same information would do you great wonders.

    Of course this is all in my opinion and you're free to do as you like, I'm just trying to help you out.

    It does involve some form of a research to list down the number of hotels and so on in each of the areas mentioned. Do you have that list in a text file, if not, it may help to prepare that yourself before hiring someone to do the actual set-up for you? Adding paragraphs would be easier and your overall costs would be brought down.

    It should depend upon the ROI that you are expecting to make it worth an investment. Content curation may be an option but again, nothing beats manual work when it comes to providing travel related information, especially so when you are aiming at not only getting but also maintaining top page 1 rankings given the low search volumes.

    PM me if you want so we can discuss your budget to get it done manually. Or skype me, khalil.a781

    You are misleading people dude... Just take a chunk of sentence and search in google. Google can find the websites that have the exact sentences. I don't see why they cannot detect if a page consist of several copy paste contents. And that's why if you spin content, it's good to go to 90 percent uniqueness to avoid being caught by Google. Trust me, they are close to skynet.

    so the 350 pages i am talking about here.. these 350 pages already exist i took one article from a taxi site accross the country. I switched out the keywords for their town with my town and posted it. I used the same article again and again swapping out the keywords 250/350 times the article is ranking page one or 2 for these keywords.

    I dont think unique content means what you think it means. If you google any one sentence in quotes you will get thousands of results for that sentence brother.. I doubt there are many people in the world today that could create a sentence that has never ever before been created in history. Think about it. Thats just crazy.

    Just to give you an idea of prices.

    $1-2 per word will get you spun crap. Go to any BST here and it will all be the same crap quality.

    $25-$50 per 500 words will get you high quality, original, excellent write up/article/review.

    Im guessing you meant $1-$2 per 500 words right?

    Also.. you got that this was a taxi cab site and we dont actually want people to spend any time reading the website? They just need to pick up the phone and dial 7.

    I have a list of questions that need to be answered to formulate these posts. If someone wants to take the job of writing one for $5 and answering all the questions hit me up on skype. If you do one and want to discuss more we will. if you do one and dont want anything to do with the other 350 I of course understand.
