Hey there guys, i am used to writing my articles that i submit to directories. But i have come to the point that i want to buy articles. How do i explain to them what i want? Like keyword density and the style of writing i need. I tried usng one of the wso article writers here and provide a keyword. The stuff they sent back to me was rubbish.

Please help!

    Just shop around and you will find good article writers for sure. Go to Digital point, post a free ad and ask for the samples. Don't order more than one article at once before you are confindent in your choice.

    As a ghostwriter for Internet marketers, I cannot refer prospective clients to my current clients since most of them want to remain anonymous. I write on so many different topics that it is difficult to have samples, but I do have an extensive question list I send to my new clients so I can get a feel for what they want.

    Those questions include everything I need to know so I can write the ebook or sets of articles the client wants, the way they want it. Keywords are part of that list. I don't market myself on freelance sites and mostly work from referrals or repeated work for the same clients. It's not the way most ghostwriters work, but it works for me.

    As an article writer and someone who runs 2 article writing sites. I will advise you to make sure you communicate exactly what you need in this form:

    No of words
    Keywords [primary and secondary if neccessary]
    Keyword density

    Also ask them to use subtitles, they always make articles easy to read

    Hope that helps

    If you want many articles for quick articles I suggest you check out Digital Point forum for new writers (native ones). They will usually start at very low prices (like 1-1.5 cents) and do a good job. I would stay away from the discount writers who can't spell their own names.

    If you want writers for larger projects, then something like Elance is good. You can set milestones and there is an escrow system in place.

    Experienced writers will ask you those questions. Things to consider telling your writers:

    1) What tone do you want (formal, personal, story, factual etc.)
    2) Keywords (which? how many?)
    3) Form (bulletpoints, paragraphs)
