    .30 for all 500 words? Or per 100 words?

    I'm pretty sure a 30 cent article for 500 words wouldn't even be able to be used as a tier 2...

    That really is a pathetic rate. I know webmasters usually want everything for nothing, but Google's recent updates make it even more important to have high quality content on-site and that will come at a price.

    I would love to see the quality of that article.

    Also, the time you are wasting by going the cheap way out is worth far more than $.30.
    Do it right the first time by paying for the quality you need.
    Time is money; and you, my friend, are wasting both.

    Quality is more important than quality. You can build a team of writers and profit well if they are good enough.

    Heard the old adage: you get what you pay for?

    No writer worth their salt is going to accept rates that low IMHO and deliver quality continuously.

    Wow, that's a really ridiculous rate you bought an article for.. He probably just wanted to get some good rep.

    For copy writing? Lol, unless he is awesome at psychology I wouldn't even pay him $0.01 an hour. Anyone can go to sites like WF and copy their sales copy, but very few can actually write copy that is ultra targeted and converts like hot cakes for the target audience. It isn't about cheap or beautiful writing, it is about psychological triggers for ad copy. I am really ashamed to see people confuse the 2.

    I couldn't agree more,

    @OP is he still writing for you? Can you share some of his work so that we can see how well he/she can write. I am a writer myself and any rate below $5 are being declined by me.

    Totally agree with you. Quality is really important, whereas a good quality is also mandatory.

    I completely disagree. The market for high-quality writing isn't touched by this sort of thing.
