    Suppose there was an established business news website with lots of high quality articles, social shares, active readers, etc.

    All sorts of great metrics... PR6, DA60+, TF50+, CF50+, tons of Facebook likes

    And if it opened contribution up to the public...

    Would you pay something like $49 per month (in a secret exclusive panel) for access to post articles there? Do follow links, must be non-promotional nature.

    All articles would be manually reviewed and approved to keep the quality top-notch for the readers.

    I personally wouldn't, I'd rather use the money on other sites and maybe if it was really good I'd pay again once or twice for another post but I wouldn't do a monthly subscription.

    Others may have different opinions though that's just me.

    Sure, $49 sounds like a steal, two articles published for clients would easily pay the subscription for more than a year. What you should definitely do is limit the number of articles per month or you'll face a bunch of forum resellers and people sharing accounts.

    Another critical thing: On one hand, you don't want customers to cancel their subscription 5 minutes after signup and then post as much as they can in the paid month. On the other hand, you can't just delete articles or remove links from articles once membership expires, because Google would probably easy detect some "unnatural behavior".

    So, cool idea, but a huge potential of abuse, even with really tough moderation.

    That's my issue with it, I don't sell SEO services so for just myself I doubt I'd post to it every month enough to justify the price. That leaves you with resellers/service providers that are using it to profit = posting a lot of articles, maybe multiple articles daily, which is an issue as well obviously.

    Thanks for your input. Yes, the site would be limited on how many articles you can post per month.
