    I am collecting some friends around where I live and asking them to write and we will share profits. Below is a paragraph from one article.. just tell me about his English... I know it's not good, but do you think people will buy 600 words for $4? You know for adsense purposes? :D

    Thanks.

    Writing style is not good. May be he/she over emphasized on keyword density. Let the writer do some rewrite first. He/She will do better on that.

    I surely wouldn't pay 4$ for something like that! But that's me...

    you say the following about his english "I know it's not good", I think that's quite an understatement...

    Dreadful just dreadful.

    Now I appreciate that English may not be your first language but that paragraph is comparable to a poorly spun article.

    The last two or three sentences are just pure jibberish.

    You may get the price you are after but I would highly doubt it would be on here.

    I'm not going to say that it's terrible, but there is always room for improvement. I'm not even sure if this is written manually though, like HOmERCIdAL said, it does look like a spun article...

    Only looked at the first 2 sentences. Awful. IMHO a human reviewer from google might drop a site from adsense if they used that article. But if someone would pay $4 for that, it would be good news for all writers...easy money! :)

    Thanks for the laugh.

    P.S. Then again, there is the truism that the worse the content, the more likely a visitor is to click on an adsense ad just to get the hell out of there, lol. So I guess in that sense, the article is an ideal one for getting those adsense clicks. The only possible problem then would be to keep under google's "quality content" radar. Maybe mixing grammatically poor articles in with well written ones would work?

    Speaking in terms of grammar, this is almost as bad as what comes out of an automatic content spinner. I wouldn't pay for this type of content no matter how cheap the price as I can always spin articles for the same quality. If your friend isn't native English, maybe he could instead write articles in his own language if there's an audience for it. There's always IMers wanting to expand into less competitive markets.

    Well, no, I won't.
    Yeah $4 per 600 words article is too low but still the writing has to be better than that.

    I wouldn't bother paying $4 for that, it's like the writer is a robot. Do you have anyone who can edit these articles to make them work better?

    That is pretty ordinary writing. There are plenty of services available here on BHW for under $1/100 words that would do a better job than that.

    Read it twice to get an idea what sense does this para makes but I must say that it's nothing but just a piece of crap. Please pardon me if I am going overboard but to be frank I would never hire this fellow. Ask the person to get some grammar lessons before he/she starts writing again. Please avoid and look for better writers, as market is full impeccable writers, there is just need for some research and bit of lady luck.

    If that's 100% unique/CS passed and has proper KW density I'd say its worth about $1 per 600 words. If it is not all of those three things that I mentioned then less as the English is quite poor, almost as if it were spun.

    I agree that it looks like a spun article. Makes me wonder if your friend has written the article in their native tongue and then used google to translate it to English. Kind of looks like the quality that google translate will spit out.

    I seriously doubt that you could find a buyer for any articles of that quality.

    Not at all worth $4.00. Possibly $2.00.

    You can probably spin better articles from better sources :) And yes, like they said, paying for that isn't worth it. It should be free.

    1. Thanks everyone for valuable feedback
    2. That's not my writing, someone who I was THINKING of hiring :p
    3. I agree maybe it's better for him to start rewriting first.
    4. English is not his native language.

    Thanks again everyone!
