    We run a popular gaming/tech community and we are looking for some talented writers to find breaking news or write opinion pieces about games or tech which are unique and will bring in traffic.

    We currently have three authors that write about very related content which gets accessed by thousands of people daily.

    We want to expand our current staff list to around 4-5 more authors, so that we can get content flowing more regularly.

    The Requirements
    1. Self sufficient - you must be able to research trending and high traffic topics in the gaming or tech industry.
    2. Ability to use Wordpress
    3. Ability to use Reddit
    4. Familiar with N4G.com (it's quick to learn)
    5. Experience in marketing, know how to draw attention with catchy titles, know how meta tags work.
    6. Basic knowledge in HTML (alt tags of images, title tags, etc)
    7. Excellent English skills
    8. A passion for writing
    9. A deep understanding of either the Gaming or Tech industry and trends (both is a bonus as you will be able to write more articles)

    The Job
    Basically, your tasks will include:

    1. Researching trending topics (must be games, tech related)
    2. Write an article about it, it must be unique and professional.
    3. If it is breaking news, be quick.
    4. After writing the article, make sure the meta title and description
    are catchy and relevant. (more appealing titles generate more traffic)
    5. Publish the article and interact with visitors if they comment on the article
    6. Submit your article on your personal Reddit (mandatory)
    7. Submit your article on your personal N4G.com (mandatory)
    8. Go back to step 1 and repeat

    We are paying a very good amount per article and we have no limit on what we spend, but it all depends on the quality of article, how much traffic you manage to bring in and how authentic the piece you write is.

    Writers will be put on a 1 week trail, you will be given access to write posts and then our staff will review them, check your writing style, and then the article will be published and we will see how much traffic you manage to bring in.

    If your articles do really, really well - we will reward you. No articles on our site that bring attention to us go unnoticed, we see everything and we reward our writers well. If you do good for us, we will do good for you.

    In terms of amount of articles, we are currently posting betwen 10-15 a day across all of our editors and we want to try push this up to around 50 articles a day by the end of Feb or mid March. Our site is only three months old and we are growing very quickly, so this is a chance for you to not only earn some money, but participate in a rapid growing news community and to make a name for yourself.

    We do not have any limit on how many articles you can post per day, as long as they are quality, your own content, and written about popular trending topics which bring in traffic.

    That being said, it doesn't always need to be trending - you could research with Google's Keyword Planner for relative categories in the gaming/tech niche. For example "Spyro the Dragon" gets 16,000 searches per day (it doesn't, but lets use it as an example). You could then go and write a piece about Spyro the Dragon, its history or something related to it that people that are searching for Spyro the Dragon will click on and want to read it and engage with our site.

    If you are interested, either send me a PM on here or post on this post.

    Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
