    i see a lot of posts on the content / copywriting marketplace people saying " i wouldn't recommend to use this service on money site"

    why is that?

    does google give you a penalty for having badly written content on your site?

    or is it just bad for the readers to see it?

    my site for example has very good rankings with little content, so now i am just buying a lot of content for it, i don't care if it's badly written or not, it doesn't have to be perfect, as long as it is 80% readable and well formatted.

    Who is going to buy from you if your content is poorly written gibberish?

    Money sites are no different than authority sites, in the sense that you need to put your best foot forward. If I come to your site and I see posts written by people who clearly don't know English, and who type like you, then I'm gonna go to your nearest competitor and buy from them. You obviously don't care, and I'm going to pick up on that. So I'll take my money elsewhere.

    People aren't stupid. If it's 80% readable then you're only trying to impress search engines, not people who are genuinely wanting information and probably trying to buy from you.

    Your money site is just that, your site where your money comes from. It should be treated as your baby and provided with the highest quality of care that you can give it. This means quality, in-depth, relevant, contextual and error-free content that tells people you know what you are talking about and are passionate about your topic. People will close a website very fast if they can spot spelling and grammar mistakes and see that the content makes little sense. Buyers are a lot more educated than they used to be and they will only give you a few seconds to decide if your website is worth their time and money.

    Readers dont rank the site first! Google Crawlers do!

    If you think content quality has zero factor in how the site ranks, you have a lot to learn.

    Bounce rate, this is extremely important and reputation as well. Just think long term will do.

    If you were wanting to by something, educate yourself before purchasing a course then you'd expect the quality of the writing to be first class.

    There's nothing worse as an example, than seeing seo sellers offering services where there are typos in the sales pitch.

    If the first couple of lines read like jibberish, you're not going to bother reading the rest of the page or any other pages on the site, are you ?

    The way I see it is if you're going to be doing work to get traffic to website, it better make every visitor count. Why would you deliberately fuck your chances of getting clicks or a sale? Makes no sense to me... well written, persuasive content can make money even on minimal traffic. I have a site that only gets several hundred hits a day and almost makes a full time income. It also takes me 8-12 hours to research and write a post, but it's paid for itself many, many times over.

    This is what I said exactly ! That quality of content matters!
    OP said "i don't care if it's badly written or not, it doesn't have to be perfect, as long as it is 80% readable and well formatted."

    if your content is unique and high quality, it will help to reduce your site bounce rate

    It really depends on the niche too. In lots of niches people aren't looking to read an essay and will just click through to what you capitalize on without reading anything but your CTA. 90% of visitors won't read your article on how to hack Clash of Clans or why payday loans from Company X are the best.

    Just having a huge CTA above the fold with crap content tucked away where 9 out of 10 visitors won't look works just fine in many industries.

    Money Site = Site that makes you money, that your customer sees.

    If I see an article on a site that could have been knocked up by a brain damaged monkey, will I be inclined to spend money on that site?

    Poor content leads to higher bounce rates and also, it will drive away costumers.

    You website got good google ranking but adding content that crap and not wriiten good will decrease google ranking .

    You must understand google see traffic as a souce to rank a website as well as code and keywords and articles, if somethink is written badly and attracting the wrong peopje to a website it can get penilised as a spam website.

    A web business is the same as any other business and if your website looks bad then
    Your possibilities to earn money is zero.

    To earn a crust things in life need to look good or acceptable.

    You dont goto a cafe and see dirty floors and dirty cups and be happy , you walk out stright to a new cafe.

    Bab content = less money or no money
    Bad backlinks "
    Bad keywords"
    Bad images"
    Bad video"
    Bad links"
    Bad seo"
    Ect ect

    All the above leads to bad internet marketing
    The idea to succeed not fail

    See if you tell yourself this when you're visiting such a site:- "I don't like the poor content on the site, I don't want to waste time there/here, let alone want to buy anything. May be the site owner means to pick my pocket and my credit card details... Hmmm... looks more like a shiit/scam site to me; better get out of there/here!" :D

    Usually, you very usually \:)/ feel that way on WF or DP sales threads (if you are a "well-read" "well-educated" person)........... lol
