    There's tons of writers on here, but if you're looking for "cheap" content I would try a freelance site like eLance or oDesk.

    If you want quality, go to Constant Content. All the Indian/ESL writers get rejected there.

    If you want cheap crap that will lower your rank, go to Elance or ODesk, but ODesk just got bought out by Elance.

    I use odesk for content writers and they do a good job. Or look in the freelancer section here.

    Hmmm....This is an interesting question because the answer depends on your definition of "best."

    There are two definitions that I can think of:

    1. Best = Writers who give you the "best" rates. Quality ranges from horrible to decent.

    2. Best = Exceptional writers that give you the highest quality writing possible and who have a firm grasp on what Google wants to find on your domain.

    You can find #1 at Textbroker* and you can find #2 at Constant Content but the price you will pay for each is, as you can imagine, wildly different.

    *and also Elance and Odesk, as others have said.

    Professional writers also tend to have their own websites and they tend to flock together. You can find a lot of them at the WAHM forum.

    If you find a blogger who covers your niche and who's writing you fancy you might try contacting them. Unless they're an authority in their niche they could probably use the money.

    Concerning procam's suggestion:

    Good writers won't be caught dead entering a "writing contest." The only place a professional writer will work for spec that I know of is Constant Content, simply because they command high prices there. The only writers interested in contests are total newbs.

    Important:

    Native writers with a solid grasp on grammar can already earn up to 1.4 per word at Textbroker. It's a more or less steady stream of work and Textbroker always pays on time, every Friday. Many Textbroker L4 and L5 writers don't bother taking on private clients for 1.4 cents per word or less for this reason. The top-tier (ie, best) TB writers earn up to 5 cents per word. I turn down work all the time because TB and CC have me covered at both ends of the pay spectrum and I think this is a growing trend.

    To Summarize:

    If you're on a budget, you can get decent writing from Textbroker. If, on the other hand, you want content that will Google will smile upon I would suggest Constant Content. Try to establish a relationship with a writer that can "hack it" on that site, as their editors are very strict. In other words, if you find someone with a lot of Constant Content sales you can be sure they are a great writer.

    I would suggest staying away from Elance/Odesk and similar sites.

    If you're looking for the best writers, i recommend you to try out here or on Freelancer or any other site or forum. Read testimonials of the writers, ask previous samples, try out samples for checking quality and many more things to do. But, The best writer is who can provide you exact material which you're looking for with highest quality within given timeframe.

    lol I bet I know you on the writer forums.

    I hate textbroker, but I can supplement slow times at Elance with some decent pay. However, I'm super picky about the jobs I take at Elance. First, it's always tech and second I don't even bother bidding on Indian jobs. I also do a background check on the client before bidding. I bid on maybe about 5-10 jobs a month. Like you said though, the tough part about it is the pay schedule. I have a decent client who has given me 3 return projects, but he pays slow. Of course, I never work without escrow, so I know I'm covered, but it's frustrating when you always have to follow up with people to nicely say "dude, it's been a month. Where's my damn money?"

    I keep logging in to Textbroker to write some content here and there, but it's all garbage now in the open pool. I know all about teams and whatnot, but can't be arsed to build up on that site. I do pretty well at Elance, but I am rated highly mainly because every client has given me another project. I usually blow the Indian writers away, because I've got a great portfolio, I don't have the Engrish, and I am more experienced in the field than they are.

    I think content writing as a career is moving towards being an expert on the subject instead of just writing crap to push out.

    Possible...I'm not as active on the TB forum as I used to be and the CC forum is pretty much dead.

    TB is a pain, to be sure. Still, you can make $50 a day there if you really need to. The trick is to get used to the "types" of clients that site has and the orders they put out there. It's boring, tear-your-eyes-out work but it will pay the bills in a pinch. And, as you said, it is better than chasing a payment down.

    If your grammar game is on and poppin' you should check out Constant Content. That's where the money is.

    I don't use Elance anymore. I just got tired of the bidding process.

    I think you're right. Google is definitely taking things in that direction. That's why you can command a lot more for your writing these days than ever before.

    it really comes down to what you are looking for? Are you looking for cheap writing? Maybe you need filler content? Or adsense readable content? you know it really depends. I say start in iwriter and the other big IM forum
