    I would say this writing has moderate amounts of grammar mistakes but overall readable. Can tell you're not a native speaker so i'd vote a 3/5.

    I would say $3/500 words around this price range.

    I agree with what aquaticgamer has said, more than a few grammar mistakes, and general sentence structure are usually the mistakes I see people making with article composition. Read it out loud and you'll find grammatical errors 90% of the time. However I do like the articles and would probably pay $2-3/500.

    As above, this isn't a native writer which can be revealed just by the words used.
    "Brushing is a common action for maintaining the oral cavity healthy,"

    I'd expect to see the word 'keeping', not maintaining - as an example.
    Not sure if it's the way English is taught, but sometimes it appears works have been thrown through a thesaurus to get a new spin on an article.

    Overall it's not too bad a quality, to price it $3 or $3.5 per 500 words max.

    Haven't voted as I haven't read all the articles so it would be unfair to do so.

    Obviously if you're not a native English speaker there will be errors but be careful about overusing certain words like "the"

    I noticed a few times that it was used in an inappropriate way.

    Also some of the sentences do look like they are from a spun article as in the example given above by @MisterF

    It is obvious that articles are written by someone who is not a native writer as the flow and sentence structure can easily prove that. However, you are still pretty good for a non-native. You can improve a lot by writing consistently, reading, engaging in conversations in places like Quora or BHW... Just write and read a lot and you will surely improve.

    I also encourage you to test and practice your grammar skills and expand your vocabulary by learning new words. When typing, try to search for synonyms by using Thesaurus.

    I would not buy this kind of content to be perfectly honest. When it comes to my own websites, I try to publish authority content written and edited perfectly. If I was thinking of hiring you for my content writing business, I would refuse as I can't afford to send mid-quality content to my clients.

    If you hire an editor and work beside him, you can charge your content at $1 or $1.5 per 100 words. Though, I still advise on improving as grammar is not the essence of writing well and even perfectly edited article might not be engaging, authoritative or insightful in any way.

    Hey Articles are good. But depends on the usage of these articles - for website blogs or just for marketing.
    Price: $3 or $4/500 words.

    Are you going to be using this for your money site?

    If so, you might want to think twice.

    It isn't conversational.

    Also, it is rather stiff and dull.

    You want to MAKE YOUR READER TRUST YOU... and this is very hard to do when they feel like they are reading a junior high school term paper.

    I'm not a native speaker myself, but the articles look fairly decent. For link building purposes, that would be more than good enough. For a money site, I would definitely use the services of a native speaker. If not to write the whole thing, at least to iron out the copy and maybe spice it up a bit.

    If you're planing to write a lot, I can only recommend the use of a professional grammar/spell check tool. There are several good ones on the market - paid, but worth every buck. It will help you improve your writing in the long term.

    So I took your article and ran it through our content tool article insights.
    Here is stats for your first article about "dental health"
    [​IMG]
    It scores well.
    1. You used word oral a bit too many times.
    2. You missed some related words/important topics to make your article even more comprehensive. Importantly the following 2 words:
      1. Decay
      2. Gum disease
    Then I ran it on "Trazodone" as they seems like a really niche article topic to get the following insights.
    [​IMG]
    As for grammar, others have correctly pointed sections that don't sound 100% perfect.

    However, did you research and refer to existing sentences online that maybe you could have modeled to sound more natural? Eg
    [​IMG]
    If I were to put my finger on it, I think you use "the" incorrectly in a lot of your sentences. eg "the depression".

    Goodluck!

    It's easy to understand that these articles are written by someone who is not a native english. Because I make the same mistakes sometimes.
    But in the end is good job.
    I will pay more or less $3/$3.50 for 500 words.
