    OK, I am sure I am not the only one person facing this problem..

    I am trying keep updated my website as I know how important is to bring fresh and unique content but its hard for me to keep it up with this.
    Sometimes I have a day that I am writing one article WHOLE day... to see on the end that I finished with 500 words... I don't like that feeling, kind of unproductive.
    I dont want to install autobloger - Google has no mercy for autoblogers. I want to make sure, search engine "think" that my content is good.


    So HOW YOU GUYS DOING THIS? Especially those who have a few websites...

    HELP!

    You can always take time one day out of the week and write articles for your site, and then schedule them (if using wordpress) to be posted different days during the week. This way you are set for the week, and don't have to worry about writing articles everyday.

    Yes, but the thing is that sometimes sitting even a few hours I cannot write one article. Then I just feel that I am wasting my time trying to write it.

    It's much better to do as I was doing at school - rewrite articles from others. We used to do it coz it was fast. But - here is another barrier - English isn't my first language - so I am spending a lot of time looking for words to replace the words in original article. This takes time too. I don't want to copy/paste article from someone website - Google will find it out.


    Did you guys faced similar problems?
    What programs, your personal methods do you use?

    I just prepare easy topics to write for the whole week, then after a little bit of research, I'll be able to write my own article in just a few minutes then post it.

    I use this technique which helps a lot (I may be a noob on BHW, but not when it comes to writing)

    First off, just start typing. Ignore grammar, how it sounds. Do not try to read it back, just keep hammering it out. If you can't think of anything then type random thoughts "I should be writing an article on SEO, but I really can't think of anything now. Perhaps in a minute I will, but for now I will keep typing' - hope you catch my drift, the most important thing is to keep momentum going and not just stare at the screen.

    When you reach 500 / 1000 words stop.

    Next you take what you have and separate it into three sections...

    Intro - This needs impact, for example, do not write 'today I am going to write about x', instead something more along the lines of 'If you don't do this you will fail!' It needs to hook the reader in. Lose them at the start and they will wander off somewhere else.

    Next is the body where you flesh out the pros and cons and evaluate the situation at hand (Oranges are nice, but it sucks to peel them, apples on the other hand can be munched right away).

    Finally conclude with your opinion! Don't sit on the fence here! This is the bit where you get there blood going to the point they want to reply and give their own opinion! Leave them wanting to come back at you and get involved.

    Now put it away for ten minutes - Print it out if you can, and proof read it (Printing out places you in a different environment and helps you see it in a different light (i.e. you see grammatical errors you would otherwise miss).

    500 words should take about 30minutes - an hour to write.

    If it takes you a day I would cetainly out source, 500 words you can buy for only a few $.

    Well, writing is hard and time consuming task. I used to hire people to write a 500 words article in 5$. I spent about 200 bucks in the past. At the end, I ended up with writing contents by myself. I do the research for the main keyword first to find a few articles, restructured the contents, re-titled it and then spin using my ready spun thresurious with multiple replacement as well as spinnerchief or TBS. I end up with more than 10 unique articles per day for my sites and also my clients.

    Hope this help!

    You can use Spinnerchief for spinning your articles after scraping from the web. I recommend to add new intro sub-title and conclusion to each article to make sure about uniqueness. If you're willing to write and spin using spinning tools, you make 10 articles easily perday. Do the search for spinnerchief as it's free to use.

    Thanks,

    Hi,
    This will all come with experience. I'm now able to write a QUALITY ~500 word article in less than 15 minutes. And I do mean quality - I offered a writing service a long time ago and charged good money for it. Now I'm even better. When it comes to writing articles for backlinking I can bust out articles as fast as I can type with no issues at all (500 words in ~5-10 minutes). And even that is of a much higher quality than most $5/article services. It comes down to getting a 'feel' for the proper structure of articles. Keep writing and after a few months you will be able to do the same.

    That said..keeping your site fresh is overrated. I have a website with 40+ posts and kept it updated for the same reason - one post per day. I stopped updating it months ago and it is still number 2 for a relatively competitive term. Depends on the niche. If you have a travelling blog (which sucks, no money in this) sure you want to update it at least weekly. OTOH I see a ton of people making BLOGS about HOT TUBS, CHANGING TYRES and whatnot. Does this make sense? Nope. It makes zero sense that you will have a daily updated blog about the 99% of profitable niches. Setup the site, put a content that is useful to the user and you are DONE. Just backlink.

    In essence - no, keeping your site fresh is not important at all.

    Hmm... shit, something must be in this - I just saw the website which ranking in one of the same keyword as me and the guy didn't update it for over a year and he is still in #3 in Google.

    Another website... PR4 with a few articles and untouched since September 2011. There is no fuc.king logic in it. No fuc.king logic.... :D

    It sounds like you're trying to brainstorm in the niche you are. I recommend you to just read other articles on sites in the same niche and then write what you just read in your own words. That's what I do and all are unique according to Copyscape.

    I think what happens is even though they have not updated for awhile, Google still sees their content as higher quality than their peers until someone comes along and does better - their position will stay put.

    Another great option to look into is Guest Blogging. This is a great way to get free unique high quality written posts/articles for your site delivered straight into your wordpress panel for review. My Blog Guest is probably the best one I've come across.

    It's not that google ranks some pages 'even though' they are not updated - if you are in a niche like physical products, clickbank products, etc. in 99% of cases it is bad and makes NO SENSE for your blog to be updated regularly. Scratch that, it makes zero sense for your site TO BE A BLOG. Let's say my website is about how to make boiled eggs. Does it make sense for me to write a blog post every day about how to put eggs in water and boil them? No. Zero sense. For that reason, G00gle will never ever start taking the freshness of the site into any consideration.

    This applies to other made up rules as well - it also doesn't make any sense to have 1000+ words on the page describing how to boil eggs. About 50 words with bullet points is enough. OTOH if I have a blog about the newest electornic gadgets, sure updating it once a week is nice, even though I'm pretty sure the freshness of the content will carry 100+ times less weight than the quality of the backlinks.

    Outsource. Outsourcing is the key.

    I would say -

    * buy 10 High Quality 500 words articles
    * Spend the rest on Building Backlinks or do it all by yourself

    This doesn't make sense though. i don't think the bots think like that lol. they just crawl. i'm in the same situation where my competitor hasn't updated his blog at all and he is still number one. I think it's also because that google will keep a site number one until it finds a site that can beat it. My competitor has only one post and it's not fair lol

    Outsource. The time you lose writing is time you could use doing something you enjoy doing, like off-site SEO.

    No point on working hard and not seeing results.

    Well, at the beginning I used to write on 500 word article in 90 minutes but as you keep training, you go faster. I now write and proofread a 500 word article in 20 minutes. It's about not putting a mental barricade; you seem to tell yourself that you hate writing and that it's time consuming, this way it will never work for you.

    A good tip would be to not rewrite each and every sentence; read the article as a whole, understand it and then rewrite it your own way, it's exactly like telling a story.
