    Hi TheeKB, if you hate writing articles I think it is better not to do this at all! Just find or hire someone who will do this for you with pleasure!

    Once I have put the initial work in, it takes me about 2 minutes to create a unique 500 - 600 word article.

    It depends on how the writer is well-versed or well-read on the subject matter. It goes without saying that the writer should research or read first about whatever he is going to write. Depending on the subject matter and the writer, research can take some time. SEO articles shouldn't at all take a long time to write so long as the writer is already used to the topic at hand.

    Are you writing these articles? I'm trying to fathom how this is even possible.

    Well, if an article has to be professional quality, it might take up to a week to do, because you have to account for research, interviewing and citations. Remember, there are magazine writers that get paid $1 PER WORD. So, you can guarantee that work at that level is going to take some time to do.

    However, if the article is average in quality, then it would probably take an hour to do. Sometimes it could take 15 minutes, but that's assuming the writer can create the content off the top of their head.

    For me it depends of quality and deep of articles that I post on my blog!
    For 100% unique content I need at least 20 minutes (if I have idea for it) to write good and quality content with some images in it!

    Depends on the niche really. If it's on football, I would be able to write it in 30 minutes there on the spot, with very limited research required.

    However, if it was one I was more unfamiliar with, I would probably need at least 30 minutes good research time, a couple hours getting in the mode and thinking how i'll go about writing the article and then finally writing it would probably take me around 30 minutes as well.

    Even if you know the subject, it is possible just to rewrite an article a bit within 20 minutes.

    For me, it depends on the subject and how familiar I am with it. The amount of research required determines the amount of time it will take to complete the project.

    Well, my articles are SEO-oriented because that's the niche I'm in :p

    Still the content itself is as well structured as I can, with keywords used to the best effect :)

    A good, fast writer shouldn't take more than an hour for a 500 word article, depending on the amount of research and familiarity with the topic. If you are using the right software and can do research fast, some writers can write quality articles in less than 10 minutes, seriously. Using speech to text software is powerful. 500 words should take me 15 minutes, but sometimes it takes 1/2 hour.

    It's not about hours. Articles are usually copy-written. Some people manage to re-write a good and seo-optimized article in less than 30 minutes.

    It takes me about an hour to an hour and a half to write a 500-word article--and ironically, the meatiest articles are the ones that take the least time. It's easy to come up with something to say about SSI and disability benefits. You want me to write an article about calico sheets? Oh geez... That could take as long as two hours, just because I'm frantically scanning the Internet for something interesting to say.

    Keywords usually don't add much time to the process unless they're bizarre. "SEO firm" is easy, "SEO firm Toronto" is tough. ("Make it look natural," said the client. And I DID IT. One of my small triumphs. But oh, did it take fiddling.)

    An hour or so. Depends on the topic. But, I always do a rewrite or related articles for a couple of other sites if it is a cross-over topic. So, one article is an hour, three articles is an hour and a half.
