    This is for article marketing enthusiast that don't have money to outsource the work and are too busy to do on their own.

    Post an ad on CLs job or gig section offering freelance writing jobs. Make an ad similar to this

    Cl ad:
    My company is hiring 100-200 freelance writers in your area. Ideal job for college students who enjoy writing. Must be able to write about and research any topic we supply you with. Email me your resume and any other qualifying credentials. If we choose you based on these credentials you will then be asked to write a set of sample articles subject to review to meet our qaulity standards. If we find you are up to our quality standards we will purchase your test articles for $10 each and send you sets of articles to complete (usually between 10-20 in a set) based on a topic and sub topics of that topic. Each set will earn you between $150-$215

    When the replies start rollin in, have your target keyword list ready and ask them to write a test article on it and put in small text at the bottom "by submitting articles to our company you agree to allow us to publish them under our name" or some other disclaimer that basically says we get to keep them even if you aren't selected.

    Just to clear up any confusion, no one will be accepted into your company. Just reply to them saying "while your articles were of quality standards, our company has reached its freelance limits. We will contact you soon as an opening arises." You will get quality articles at no cost. The only draw back is that you probably will have to sprinkle some of your target keyword into them, most academic article writers aren't writing for seo. Which is a good thing because it makes it to where you won't get caught. I wouldn't use an autoresponder for this as it will work much better if the emails are personal.

    First contribution, feel free to thanks. If this post isn't in compliance with posting rules, please edit or delete accordingly.

    -Matt

    I tried this, a lot of the people that would respond to be a freelance writer will provide you with content that is 9 times out of 10 already published online somewhere.

    I started submitting these to AC and a ton got denied. It proved to be too much work on my end to make it work.

    Just find German or French orig content and translate it and submit. Works like a charm every time.

    Hell you can even OCR scan books ;-)

    Ahhh, I didn't think of duplicate content. Maybe add a clause in there that says "we check all articles for plagarism and submitting plagarised content will lead to contacting authorities". Im interested in translating french content. Do you just snag a french article and translate using google translator?

    I'M just helping out. We must stick together us BlackHatters - don't care if it's old. It's not bad just because it's old. Intelligence is not proportional with age - unless you are old off cause and can claim that :)

    I did this not too long ago just to see if it would work. I posted 3 ads in big cities and got a ton of responses. All said and done, I got 7 very well written articles written for me for free. All passed plagiarism checker. I haven't done anything with them yet however, but this idea does work.

    I never used a disclaimer saying I could publish them, and a few people would ask for my company name. I just ignored them.

    BTW, anyone want to buy 7 professionally written articles on skin care? :D

    Hah. Someone asked for my company info too. Just didn't reply. I've got a few responses from my local cl ad. Im doing extensive kw research right now to find good articles. What is the best way to check for plagarism? Copyscape? But do you have to host the article everytime and check it on copyscape?

    I just went to google and typed in plagiarism checker. This site worked for me:
    HTML:
    http://www.dustball.com/cs/plagiarism.checker/
    I had so many responses I was having trouble giving each person a topic to write about. Does anyone have an idea about how to get many different article topics on the same niche?

    I've made posts to elance and guru and I'd often get the work done for me in advance.

    Thanks man that's a great idea. I thought about that initially but I figured I needed more than 25 keywords because I was easily getting 100+ responses.

    Can't you simply check the content with CopyScape before submitting them to AC?
