    I need to have 9 seed articles written, I will supply the topics and they will be very broad niches such as health or online business...

    If the results are good there will be steady business down the road.

    Please PM with quotes and time frames for delivery.

    Seed Article: noun - An article that is written in syntax to be used with a content spinner. This will typically involve the article having multiple variations of each sentence written along with multiple synonyms for each word. This gives the article the ability to become many different unique articles by "spinning" it with software such as Power Article Rewriter.

    Sorry, I thought it would be good for people to have a definition of a seed article, I posted this job with great detail on 5 freelance boards and then this small post here on BHW.

    Of the 72 people who responded to the ads only 5 of them actually knew what a seed article was. Of those 5 only 1 was anywhere close to degree of articles I was looking for, and still was not up to par.

    Does anyone here have someone they use to have SEED articles written that they would like to recommend? And please no more PMs saying you can do this then sending me a sample of a regular article.

    Shame on the people posting as freelancers that do not read or understand the job description but insist they can do the work.

    Please, anyone recommendations to a writer that does quality seed articles would be much appreciated. I am starting to think my expectations are too high and will have to keep producing them myself.

    Hello dear OP :)

    I think you are looking for something like this: (I have used one of your own paragraph and have prepared a sample 'seed' article, just for my friends here who might be interesting in working for you.) I could have done a better job, but this is an average effort that will give you all some idea of how an article is spun. This is not nested deeper or it would have become very complex to understand by everyone.

    Your paragraph:
    Sorry, I thought it would be good for people to have a definition of a seed article, I posted this job with great detail on 5 freelance boards and then this small post here on BHW.

    'Seed Article' Example:

    {Sorry,|My apologies, but|I sincerely am sorry to say this, but|I apologize,|I am sorry, but} I {thought|believe|imagine|guess|reckon} it {would be|will actually be|was potentially|could actually be|is really} {good|better|great|much wiser} for {people|every one here|all of you|everybody|the sake of all|all my friends here|those who may not still know,|you all|all} to have {a definition|a meaning|a true picture|an understanding|details|some idea|an idea} of {a seed article|what a seed article actually is|how a seed or spin-ready article looks like|what I mean by a seed article}. I {posted this job|wrote about this job|opened a job-post|placed a forum post about this {type of work|job}} with {great|every|complete|extensive} {detail|requirement} {on {5|five} freelance {boards|websites|forums|marketplaces}|on a handful of {forums|marketplaces|workplace} for freelancers|on {5|five} marketplace websites|on 5 well-known freelancers' sites wishing to seek expert freelancers,} and {then|after that,|later|afterwards,} {this small post here|this little post|the present post|this post} on {BHW|Black Hat World|http://www.blackhatworld.com%7Cthis forum|blackhatworld.com|B.H.W|this great forum}.

    Spin 1:
    I sincerely am sorry to say this, but I thought it was potentially better for all my friends here to have an idea of what I mean by a seed article. I opened a job-post with great requirement on 5 well-known freelancers' sites wishing to seek expert freelancers, and afterwards, this little post on Black Hat World.

    Spin 2:
    My apologies, but I imagine it could actually be much wiser for all my friends here to have an idea of what I mean by a seed article. I placed a forum post about this type of work with complete detail on 5 well-known freelancers' sites wishing to seek expert freelancers, and after that, this post on http://www.blackhatworld.com.

    Spin 3:
    I apologize, I believe it could actually be great for all of you to have some idea of what a seed article actually is. I posted this job with every detail on five marketplace websites and after that, this post on blackhatworld.com.

    Spin 4:
    I sincerely am sorry to say this, but I reckon it will actually be great for everybody to have details of a seed article. I opened a job-post with every requirement on five freelance forums and later this post on BHW.

    Spin 5:
    Sorry, I thought it will actually be much wiser for you all to have a true picture of what I mean by a seed article. I opened a job-post with extensive requirement on five marketplace websites and later this little post on this great forum.

    Spin 6:
    I am sorry, but I guess it is really much wiser for people to have an idea of a seed article. I posted this job with extensive detail on 5 well-known freelancers' sites wishing to seek expert freelancers, and then the present post on blackhatworld.com.

    Spin 7:
    Sorry, I guess it was potentially better for all of you to have an idea of what a seed article actually is. I opened a job-post with complete detail on 5 freelance forums and later the present post on http://www.blackhatworld.com.

    Spin 8:
    I apologize, I believe it will actually be better for the sake of all to have details of what I mean by a seed article. I wrote about this job with every requirement on 5 freelance boards and afterwards, this post on this great forum.

    ... and so on!

    There can be deeper and more complex 'nestings' that will achieve more 'spin', but then... Awww... you get the idea! Too much work, too much time required... :D

    Of course, you'll still need to edit every article to weed out bad seeds! (Weed out some punctuation / grammar / etc. mistakes... then reformat the seed till it is perfect! And then if the 'master' asks you to change some text / reformat.... you just had it!!!) Well, even after polishing, spit-polishing, and more spit-polishing, the seed will still have some mistakes.

    And if you aren't careful while editing, then you'll definitely screw up the whole previous effort... Hence most of these job-givers aren't satisfied 10% with the 'super-human' efforts. ;) Still, good luck to you all!

    @srb888

    I understand what you are saying about writing seed articles as being a lengthy and painstaking process. I know because I was writing them for myself, why do you think I am trying to hire them out now? :)

    I understand the complexities of writing these articles, however I assume that because I can achieve the results I am looking for that it is possible for someone else to achieve the same or greater. (I know, I know...I shouldn't ass-u-me things).

    However the point I was trying to make after the original post was that the vast majority of the people who replied stating they were an "expert in this field" had no clue what a seed article was.

    I was, however, able to locate a suitable seed article writer through this forum. I put in a sample order and the article came back looking great, so hopefully it keeps up and I can focus my time elsewhere instead of writing seed articles.

    My second post on this thread wasn't an attempt to discredit any specific freelancer or freelancing sector, but instead was just pointing out the fact that most of the people who will respond to a job are not qualified and possibly have not even read your description. It can waste a great deal of time weeding out the unqualified candidates, or worse off hiring someone who cannot complete the work.

    I use freelance boards daily to get leads in the web development sector and I would never bid on something I did not think my firm could handle in the time period required...that's how you end up with a bad rep and negative feedback, which as everyone knows, makes getting business in the future impossible.

    Everyone has an opinion, this is only mine.

    @ OP:

    Well said!

    My attempt to spin your small text / para in the earlier post was no where near the quality that I usually go for, :) but it was an attempt to show most of the fellow writers how a spin usually looks. Spinning in this fashion is one of the most difficult tasks and needs good analytical skills.

    I wanted to use an example just to show how much efforts really goes into it, and purposefully kept all the errors in the seed to show what the spin would look like in case the seed is not re-edited, re-structured, re-analyzed, etc., etc... :)

    Also, if this effort for writing the seed (hopefully without errors and producing satisfying results in all spins) is calculated, you'll see that each seed article (normal 500-words base article) would cost the writer nothing less than $150+++ at least (& I'm not even applying the writer's profit margin over it)! Please do the calculations. IMO, as 99.9% of the job-givers will never pay anywhere close to even 25% of this, you'll never find the best seed-writers in the normal online marketplaces. Hence your highly negative stats in your 2nd post. It was simply to prove THIS point, I took a small effort...

    As you're a seed-writer yourself, you may agree with this.

    Anyway, I sincerely wish GL to you! :)
