    My friend wrote it... he's not done. Note: He's not a pro... just trying to save some money. On a scale from 1- 10. Should I use it for my niche? I know this may screw up the whole google copyscape thing by me posting it... but I need feedback.. so.



    Traveling comes in handy, and can be beneficial if you are one who needs a break from your everyday life. It gives you the ability to seperate yourself from your problems and/or stress you may be dealing with related to work, family, relationship or any other crisis you might be facing at the time. Sometimes in order to figure things out or gain clarity or peace with a situation; you just need space and seperation. Traveling can most certainly grant you that.

    Now, when I hear about someone traveling, I simply invison someone packing their bags and hoping in their car or a tour bus to go explore the world. Although, you don't have to take a trip to another country or all 50 states to recieve the benefits and experience of traveling. However, in my personal opinion I think traveling some where far far away from your origin, gives you the best experience.

    There are benefits with every travel, whether you are traveling for pleasure, business-related, or with family or friends. However, I believe that you recieve the most benefits of your travel, when you travel alone. You get more out of the experience, simply because you are able to connect yourself with the moment. You will also have the ability to explore and learn new things, along with meeting new people that are all different from what you are used to. You will then have a different prospective on life and have the ability to find out who truly are.

    TBH, it's extremely boring like about 95% of the articles you find online. I'd give it a 2 out of 10 tops.

    If I had come across it when surfing I wouldn't have got past the two sentences. Writing stuff that captures attention is hard and takes a lot of practice plus a certain amount of talent.

    It is much easier to write from an "I" point of view - describe why you like travelling, what would be your most amazing travel experience, the best place you have ever visited etc. It becomes much more interesting and IMO more search engine friendly - G has cracked down hard on sites where the authors don't have obvious credentials on the topics they write about, so writing from your own perspective and drawing from your unique experiences is helpful to avoid their slaps.

    Formatting kind of covers all the points incognito876 brought up. IF you use some BOLDs, italics, and H1s or H2s or even H3s, it'll make it more interesting to read.

    It didn't jump out at me. I feel the opening sentence is pretty negative, although it's a positive. However, reading negative things makes people more willing to consume(Which is why they have so much drama bullshit on TV, then slam you with ads, they want to give you the results of this TV show, BUT!!! AFter some commercials. So, in that sense, it's okay.

    Traveling though. I would start out something in the traveling niche with something more along the lines of, "SO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL!? Do you even remember the last time you traveled? Has it really been that long? What is that one place in the back of your mind you can't wait to see with your own two eyes? Jamaica? Spain? Portugal? Do you want to see the Coliseum of Rome maybe?"

    They are ENGAGED, they are THINKING about the questions I asked them. Also, gives you a HUGE chance to throw in some BEAUTIFUL imagery.

    Talk to them how, traveling can be done every day and new experiences can be found on a bicycle if they want to quench their thirst for travel but can't due to expenses.

    I give it a 5.

    Fairly low grade keyword stuffed prose. I wouldnt be appaled if I bought it cheap as I've bought some terrible content in my time. I wouldnt be using it on a main site to engage visitors, I see it more as stuffing on a web 2.0.

    He should proofread and sort out the small spelling/grammatical errors before he hands over any work.

    I second that and would also like to add that even if you try to use it now it has already been indexed in google from your post here. Therefore it is not original content to your site.

    Next time use the code tags(#) to wrap your text so it wont be indexed.

    Reads like an essay turned in by a high school student. I agree with previous remarks - would have lost me somewhere during the second sentence. Good writers are hard to find. There is a HUGE difference between professional writing and content filling.

    It has some work to do. Like the post say above, it is kinda generic. Room for improvement, but it's free. Tweak it, add stuff and it should be alright.

    its not completely dreadful but I would never read the whole thing. Your "friend" needs to work on comma placement, spelling (hint: somewhere not some where) and other grammatical slip ups. This could find a spot on tier 1 links for me but I would never put it on my money site.

    Lol @ traveling comes in handy :)

    Going over it, i honestly struggled to read past the first few sentences. definitely not something i would pay for because it's something i could write in 10 mins. If you choose to go with this, you will have to change it for something more captivating in the future

    7/10 for the diligence. You can use it for seo, not for people.
