    So this only applies to white hat stuff, I realize if your purely black hat it can be irrelevant. However if you are trying to make money from your online content heres some stuff to keep in mind, especially for noobs here.

    So first of all, this is a big issue for me because I teach English here in Prague, so I deal with this stuff all the time :). So check it out, If you are a non-native speaker of English, and your level is below upper-intermediate, you absolutely need to get your articles and anything else you've written corrected by a native speaker or someone with a high level of English. Honestly you can have a friend do it or pay someone like maximum 5$, its simple. I corrected this guys website the other day and every single article was littered with mistakes, I mean honestly? No native speaker will spend more than a moment on a website with bad English sorry. If you don't want to get your articles corrected why not just target people who speak your language? There's probably less competition that way anyway.

    Yeah thats all just a short little rant


    :D

    Do you notice that your own post is full of errors? No idea why you think you are in the position of giving this advice to us non-natives.

    i think he mentioned earlier in the post that he is also non-native, so there is no point of argument.

    But

    I am confused as he also said that he is teaching English. God Bless his all English Class Students :D

    I believe that Non native person should hire a native english writer to make article more readable and it can be used by any nation native as well non native. And google god hates poor quality of contents with non-native quality.

    Did you know that the native english speaker commits more mistakes in this language than a non-native speaker!

    (Read a news article on this)

    Man I totally agree with out.
    Was reading a blog post by Business Insider on spelling, I never seen a business niche making posts to help in spelling. I am still amazed how even natives (on Skype) write so wrong...

    I don't want to really hammer the heads of our native English folks out there. After all, 95 percent of my clients are native English-speaking good people. People outsource their content writing needs to me for two reasons: it's either they're busy to do the writing themselves already OR they know they will hit lots of English 101 errors if they do the writing on their own.

    Maybe, it has just become a default expectation for people who live in an English-speaking country to speak and write "technically" very well in English. Mind you, there are people who don't write and speak well in their vernacular, too (non-English-speaking countries).
