    Hello everyone,

    As you all know, writing for a Google News Listed website is an honor for any writer, and it also boosts your profile as a writer.

    We have that opportunity. If you think you can cover the breaking news fast, and write great content; we will offer you a spot in our team.

    Alongside, you will also get your name on the CORE TEAM page of the website as an author.

    Payment will be $100 per month, and you have to produce two news articles everyday (word count varies from 250 words - 400 words generally, depending on the type of news being covered). Don't put comments saying it's a low price & so on! We're hiring future oriented people & once site gains good momentum are willing to revise the pay structure and also give a permanent place in the team.

    Interested writers PM me. Experience in writing for google news approved sites would be a plus point.

    Use the subject "google news writer available" so I know you have read the complete thread before applying.

    Thank you.

    Hi Gaurav - Although my rate is nowhere near your budget of $100.00 for 60 x 400-word news articles a month, I still decided to send you my business proposal. Perhaps, by reading my quality control processes and my experience in the content writing business, you'll agree to pay my price. I don't charge an arm and a leg, however.

    The pay is ###, and your pitch is a joke.

    Nobody wants to work for pennies, and being on your site is not an honor.

    At a bare minimum, you are asking for $600 worth of content for $100. Seriously?

    Demanding to be compensated fairly does not mean that someone is not a "forward oriented" individual. Far from it, in fact.

    Yeah, that's what they all say, lol. The problem is, whatever noob writer takes this is going to give you poor quality. What will you do then? Demand higher quality for the same price?

    LOL

    You are pitching this as a "great opportunity" to write for a Google News approved site. Any site can get this - and any writer good enough for this can do this on his own and take 100% of the traffic, revenue, etc.

    In reality this is a slave labor position at $1.67 an article.

    You are offering a shit sandwich and labeling it as a steak dinner.

    Good luck to any sucker that jumps on this.

    lol 60 articles for 100 $ ? And by the way we are talking for google news, so articles should be at least average, not that 1 $ /100 words crap you typically get. I hope you good luck sir, hopefully you will have a few suckers that will take your deal

    I was just about to send a PM - then I got my calculator out and did some maths!

    Just as a warning to the OP - you're unlikely to get native UK / USA English speakers for that money - not ones that will do decent work or stick around anyway! You'll end up with..... well we all know what you're going to end up with!

    You're putting your Google News status at severe risk by posting poor quality to it.

    Get in touch if you want some decent journalistic standard content for your site.

    I would think that you're best offering a profit split instead. That way you'll more likely attract someone not only with an entrepreneurial spirit but who has belief that their work is good enough to yield good results for you both.
