Question About Buying Articles On Fiverr

32 replies
Okay so I hear people on here talking about hiring a content writer to write a custom article/content for them but what's the deal with the Fiverr deals like buy 1200 artilces on real estate or buy 1000 articles on debt?

Is it bad to buy articles like that? If you setup a blog and posted all articles that you bought will it not rank well because 1000 other people have also posted those articles?

    exactly, if you get 1k articles for $5 you can be 100% sure that it's some PLR stuff. More importantly, it's the same 1000 articles that will get sold over and over again in the same fiverr gig so you and 296 other people will have it.

    They probably won't take action and post all 1000 of them but it's still advisable to rewrite these thoroughly. Not sure if that's worth your time though, I found that rewriting (especially low-quality) PLR was sometimes more time consuming than writing the article from scratch.

      I've recently been hearing about article spinning tools. What is this? Basically you paste an article in and it re-writes hte article and changes words? Is this effective? Do the articles it "spins" actually make sense or is it mumble jumble?

      I downloaded some free article spinning tool and I couldn't figure out how to work it. Does article spinning work and if so what's a good easy to use spinner?

        Free article spinners produce low quality spins. If you plan to use this software, you better try Best Spinner. You can simply paste the paragraphs or whole article on it and spin. However, you may need some time editing it because it will be you who will be choosing the appropriate synonyms that will make sense.

          Do not purchase articles from Fiverr to post on your site. As stated a number of times, these articles are unprofessional in quality and have been article spun. You are only hurting yourself and your web-based business.

          If you want your site to appear professional and full of quality content, you do not need articles that might appear on a gazillion other sites.

    If you intend to use these articles on your site etc then best avoided. It makes sense that these are tosh; if its too good to be true....

    Article spinning I have found to be frustrating and time consuming for a poor product. You can often get gibberish back out from them. There are many article spinning services/products available with variable results. If you want to avoid writing yourself the outsource. As suggested iwriter is great, or others such as freelancer.com for more specific or longer articles/reports etc.

      I have tried article spinning on several articles that I have written. Quite honestly, I don't like the article content that results. It is distorted from the original.

      Plus, in one of my business lines, I have to be 110% FTC-compliant. I don't need the Feds pounding at my front door because of some misleading information that was inserted into one of my articles by way of an article spinner.

    That amount of articles is definitely not going to be unique or readable. I wouldn't ever buy content from Fiverr. For content, I recommend:

    The thing with fivver that MOST people are there for easy buck,which means that they will sell the same articles over and over,with google updates those article worth NOTHING.
    you might find a few pearls but the chances are low and you have no way know until you pay.

    1200 articles are PLR for sure. I would suggest to stop right there especially with the latest updated google guidelines. One day you will be running an ok sort of business the next day your site could be indexed. That's what crashed the BMR network a few months back.

    I would suggest hiring a quality writer and posting unique content. Quality content goes a long way.

    Don't buy them and try to use software to SPIN them. They will not come out very nice and might pass copyscape, but imo google has better algorithms than copyscape and may still detect they're duplicates.

    I purchase 1000 articles on fiverr...But for a different purpose...I use to help me get fast ideas and then I rewrite 90% of the article manually.

    I wouldn't say not to buy them because they are PLR articles, but I would say that if you do buy them, you should rewrite them before using them on your website. So PLR isn't a complete easy road, they are worth more if you rewrite them. Secondly, you get what you pay for and $5 for 1200 articles will give you pretty crappy articles so if you are going to buy PLR then I would suggest paying a bit more for some higher quality PLR.

    If it's PLR just make sure that you are rewriting it and creating unique content out of it. It's obviously not unique content for that low of price already so just know what you are getting and know what to do with it.

    Nothing wrong with articles from fiverr as long as you know what you are getting into.

    If you are big on SEO, then you can use it for search engine material, as long as you take a couple minutes to correct any needed mistakes.

    It is PLR material at best.

    I've bought content from fiverr in the past with a specific purpose in mind. I wasn't upset because I got what I expected

    Try to get native speakers to write them for you. Most of the fiverr articles I have seen are comical beyond belief as to how wrong they are. I have seen better quality in the third grade elementary school I tell you. Humor is often in how poor it is.

      Agreed. Non-native English speakers are almost never worth it since the way they write is just not the way that people speak the language.

    It is ok to buy articles but you have to go through or read those articles and ultimately, or even rewrite them just to be on the safe side. Honestly, it is still better if you just make your own article or even rewrite them. If you don't have the time to write or rewrite, have someone you trust do it for you.

    Those articles are garbage. I bought 1000 plr package for real estate. As mentioned above...these articles have been passed around more than my high school prom date! And the articles that have been spun make no sense...you get what you pay for.

    I have paid to have articles writen for specific topics which i was quite pleased with. There are so many GOOD writers out there trying to make a buck...just check out their satisfaction % and you can usually pick the good from the bad.

    They will be PLR articles which means it is likely that they have been published on many other blogs already so not really much use for posting as quality content on your own website.

    However for 5 bucks you will get a lot of good niche ideas if they are decent quality and can use them as a starting base to write your own articles.

    There are a lot of other ways you can use them ie autoresponder content if they offer tips etc...

    Think out the box ......

    I'm guessing the key is quality over quantity.

    If you would like to build a good blog, putting the original and unique contents is the best way to do it. If you plan to get that kind of stuffs....then I really suggest you not to do that...seriously...

    Usually the gig offerer states whether it's original content written by them or if it's PLR stuff, tbh to guarantee that you are getting pretty much original content only claim gigs where the topic is off your choice and also if the seller has a good rep

    And do you honestly feel you can get unique and valuable 1K+ content for just five bucks? It's a warning sign and you should keep away from those types, it must be PLR or badly written content. :p

    Nowadays it's important to stay away from stuff like that and focus on quality content that is unique, original and fresh. You can get 1-2 articles written for that same $5 and get a lot more value that way from a good writer.

    Most of the content is old PLR. The only thing you can do is rewrite it yourself. Even though the content is old, it may provide you with a template that will be a profitable article for your site or blog.

    I use MNF and Keyword Blaze to find good niches. It might even be a better idea to just target longtail keywords on Youtube, and make videos out of the articles. You can usually get top ranking for longtail (5+ keywords). Not a lot of traffic, but if you ahve enough videos, it might pay off.

    Also, I would read them yourself, and only read about a 1/3 of the article. Then have a link going to your article on your blog and monetize it that way. So if you want to buy them, that's how I would use them.

    Those are PLR articles. They sell the same articles to dozens/100s or even 1000s of people, on or off fiverr. So they can't be used directly. They can only be used for research.

      That's a useless way to populate a blog and a sure way to get penalties from Google.

      Especially after the last algorithm updates, posting duplicate content is just killing your projects.

    Unless you plan on spinning those posts and finely filtering the spun items through copyscape, it would be a bad idea to put them on your site. Considering the amount of reselling those packages have gone through, you might get penalized HARD for duplicate text.

    PLR packages like that are best used for email marketing in my opinion. You will definitely have to do some editing to the PLR files if you're going to post them online.
