We don’t know where to start. With the fact that 400 articles at 500 (keyword laden) words each for $1,200 works out to…well, less than one cent a word. If you can crank out four articles an hour, that’s 100 hours of work. But hey, it doesn’t have to be quality writing (except for the part where your name might be on it. . .quite possibly, there’s a reason they suggest writers might want to use a pseudonym. Your work will then be sold to various blogs as ghostwritten content.

Okay, knowing that the type of sites who purchase inferior writing are looking just to boost ad revenues doesn’t help. Because there’s nothing we like more than clicking on a link in hopes of finding real information, only to discover a bunch of keywords strung together in what some might charitably call sentences.
