Making Money With Ghostwritten Articles

ON line publishers beware! Buying articles that are pre written and supposedly original is not always the way to go.

When you publish an article on line, no matter what site it ends up on, you are placing your reputation as a reliable source, on the line.

Putting such an important asset in the hands of another writer can be a daunting endeavor. How do you know the content is original? how do you know the ghostwriter in question won't just publish the article somewhere else and ruin your chances at top billing?

The truth is, there's no way to be 100 percent secure when ordering ghostwritten articles. You can however reduce the risk of damaging your reputation, simply by proofreading any work you buy, prior to publishing.

Things to watch for;
  • Anyone asking for upfront payment
  • New providers with no reputation
  • Duplicate content
  • Keyword stuffing
  • Any obvious attempts at black hat SEO
These are just a few things that may tip you off to a situation that would be better off left alone. Why buy an article that will take you longer to research the originality, grammar and spelling? Most likely you could write the article yourself faster.

I've included a link to my profile at Info Barrel. Most of you know I write and publish at that site. My information is there for my Ghostwriting services.

This is not an advertisement for my services. Instead I am simply trying to warn my fellow publishers about the dangers. Make sure you know who your dealing with. The best recommendations will come from fellow writers within your circles. Use the friends you've made in this business and don't get ripped off.

If you have a nightmare tale about outsourcing articles, maybe you could share with our readers and potentially save them a big headache.
