    I have started a video game blog / forum and I want to make content in my site but I don't have to much to start so what is the best way to get free hot content for my site?

    Starting a new project by using low quality content is never a good idea. Either save up the money for a decent content writer, or research the topic yourself and put the work in to write high quality content. Short cuts on the quality of the content tend to make new projects a total failure from the outset in my experience.

    This is just a thought. I've never tried this, but reddit has the cheapest advertising I've used. I would create a page on your website and start a contest. Buy something like a copy of the new Zelda game or even a game system or set aside some money for one. Start a contest saying people can enter to have a chance at winning the prize you select buy submitting a 500 word review of your favorite game. Review must include xyz. Place the ad on Reddit and link back to your website page that has an email for them to submit their article. Depending on the value of the prize you could end up with a lot of good content for a very cheap price. After you have enough articles, pick a winner, ask where they want their item shipped, and ask them to post a picture of recieving the item saying that they won, on reddit. With reddit advertising you can target the gaming subreddit and subreddits of specific games. A good reddit ad needs to be personal. Don't just put "enter contest to win such and such" be more like "Hey Redditors. I'm in the need of honest gaming reviews from actual gamers. If you want developers to hear your voice, take the time to write a short 500 word review and submit it to have a chance at getting a FREE copy of Zelda Breath Of The Wild. Click the link to read the full details."

    Also, in your contest details, be sure to mention that all rights to the articles are transferred to you upon submission and don't forget to check for plagairism. I would even mention on the contest page that all articles will be checked for plagiarism. To get more articles, mention that multiple submissions of different reviews are allowed.

    If you try this, let me know how it goes. The minimum for Reddit ads is only $5 dollars and I always set it to $0.25 per 1000 impressions.

    Exactly. It's more work, but you will get rewarded far more by delivering good quality content right from the outset. Good luck!
