    Well Alex I would prefer that you should start your blog with your written posts personally. Don't buy articles for your blog because in this way you will become depend on paid articles and which might cross your budget for your passion or what ever. Find a good niche and do some research then start your own blog. Ask for help whenever you need and be focused. :cool:

    Yes of course. Lots of people have blogs that contain ghostwritten content, and most businesses don't write their own blog posts either. It's definitely possible, and easy to do as well.

    As long as you hire someone who agrees to ghostwrite the content, you can do anything you like with it. And yes you can add ads to the content.

    I agree with the others here who say that buying articles is perfectly fine. I would add that you want to make sure the articles are completely original so you don't get stepped on by the search engines.

    It's advisable that you work with the authors you hire so they can learn your voice and prepare your articles with that voice in mind so that all the articles read similar to each other. If you're putting your name as the author you want the voice of all articles to read like they came from the same person.

    Make sure you buy the articles as "Work For Hire" so that you own all rights to the content.

    I also recommend that you published some articles that you personally write from time to time.

    No, but it's not expensive. It's something like 5 cents per search.

    I read a post recently stating that Copyscape is no longer accurate. Don't know if it's just a singular incident or not and don't remember where I read the post. But a Google search for "check content uniqueness" just gave me 1.6 million results. So you have plenty of room to look around. Just remember, as always, buyer beware.

    He obviously can not write content himself by looking at the few words he has already stated.
    writers are not all that cheap, and people get caught up in the cheap writers because that is
    all they can afford, and if that is the case, then no need to bother adding junk content to the web...
    then he has to find high quality links, and that will be another cost factor...

    your niche should also be very well researched, and targeted...does he know how
    to do keyword research? I wish it was easy ABC setup a site, make some money....
    however, google has moved past the low quality sites, and expects higher quality....

    and lets say you have a niche, what do you have to bring to the table, other then
    the same old content that explains "how to turn a switch on/off...".....

    Unless you do it all yourself, then you will have to outsource everything...
    if you have done everything right, then expect to spend $3k-$5k and 12-24 months
    to see if you have done everything right....

    If you dont have a budget, then expect this to take a really long time....
    and there are simply zero guarantees that you will even succeed....

    These are valid points. The OP is looking at a pricey way to build a site. The content must be high quality or it won't please the search engines.

    He can learn how to create good content over time though. Depends on how much he wants success. There was a time when none of us could write content.

    Nothing beats your own well researched content to begin with really. You should try to set the tone yourself and invite host writers in to expand, but if you really hate (or cannot) write, then look for high quality and well reviewed writers. It will cost you more but well worth it in the long run. Make sure you at least learn how to read analytics to ensure your investment is bringing the results you hope for. Otherwise it's like handing over your new family to a known criminal for upbringing.

    he does not need to please search engines; he needs to please visitors...
    If visitors do not like the site, and bounce, then google will act accordingly,
    and so will other search engines since some of them feed off google....

    If he is doing SEO, then google will be the true money maker, I consider
    all other search engines insignificant compared to google traffic....

    3 things can doom your site...

    1. high bounce rate, indication visitors did not like or find site useful.
    (this could be due to bad design, poor content, etc...)
    2. anchor/keyword over optimization (using the same keywords over, and over...)
    3. bad link building

    I seen someones case study last month that showed his break down of what it
    took for him to succeed. he spend nearly $4k, and it took him nearly 10mo for
    his site to start earning $500/mo, and that sounds about right since google
    is going to hold back a new site for a min of 6 months anyway ie: sandbox....

    some people do not believe in google's sandbox, but I find it funny that people
    do all this link building, however, sites do not really kick into gear until site starts to age...
    or it could be just a coincidence that it takes several months for link building to kick in...

    site ages
    links start kicking in
    6-12 months, maybe you see some $$$$

    If you setup a crappy site....
    you end up getting nothing....

    ps, google does not care about your shit site...
    If you can find a way to get visitors to stay on your site
    site, then you have a winner...I see sites all the time with
    poor quality content, but if visitors love the site, then
    google will love the site also, and google awards the site
    accordingly. I seen a site with almost zero content...
    however, visitors seem to love the site, and so does google...
    (imo: most people are not creative enough to pull this off....)

    It is important that the blog owner has knowledge about content to avoid miscommunication in creating articles. It will be too much expensive if you didn't even know what you're doing.
