Has anyone ever heard of "Blog posts for sale" and what do you think?

    In my quest for resources I came upon a site called Blog posts for sale.  I just wondered if anyone used it, knew of it, and if so, what you think of it?

      The aim here is to pay someone to write a post for your blog. If you write the post for someone then you get paid.

      What I do not get, is why pay someone to post on your blog. The result is new content for your blog so why not use another email address and post your own comment on a post as this is new content as well.

      What do I think of it? It's a very innovative marketing ploy that someone has come up with to get a percentage of the pay for post. The webmaster is very smart and exploring the boundaries to make a living online.

      However, there are other resources you can use on your blog. I am sure if anyone posted a thread here for a three hundred page article they will receive quite a lot of quotes to do so. Most of us can knock out an article for the price of a coffee.

    Haven't heard of his particular one, but there are many people who will post content to your blog if you pay them.

    They range in price from very cheap to very expensive.

    I've never used the services of anyone like this, so I don't know the pitfalls.

    But I'd suggest that you try and establish the quality of any posts that they may submit, and don't give them too much money up front.

    Alternatively, they may be offering to pay you to make posts to blogs.
    Be careful, because similar article type sites will get people to send examples of their work, which then get blasted around the net with no payment to the author.

    As with anything, check them out.

    Actually, this is how it works.

    Bloggers get paid to mention ( with a link ) or  link to a specific website.
    Advertisers pay to get a link on various industry blogs.

    It's a simple way to get in front of your target market.
    We have some modifications to make before it's launched fully.

    I obviously need to refine the intended message because it does not seem perfectly clear. My fault.   Yes I am the owner.  Contact me if you have more private questions you don't want to post publicly.

    I have one question pamphile - do you allow bloggers to "no follow" the link to the advertiser?

      We will soon allow "no follow" link selling within blog posts.

    This is called selling links and there are any number of pay to post companies - If you don't mind having your blog reduced to PR0 when you get noticed by google smile

    What are you paying for a PR4 link?

    I'm with Mark here, avoid them. 

    Blogs are highly personal things to most people, selling links on blogs is what will discredit blogs as future media.

    Trust me, unless you'd prefer never showing up in search resultas for google don't bother.

      @Junkster and @Mark

      As far as I am concerned.  Google isn't the only source of traffic in town.  You can't run a business while depending on Google SEO traffic.  That's a sure recipe for failure. 

      People buy links for different reasons.  All link buying isn't aimed at improving SEO.  Sometimes buyers just want to get in front of their target market with or without Do follow links or No Follow links. 

      Like any good thing, buying blog posts should not be abused. SEO is like a balanced nutrition. It should be varied and not based on one food source.   

      I've seen link buyers benefit greatly from their promotion efforts.  They used blog links and other creative promotion techniques.  I can't give public examples or ideas. 

      And that's all I'll say for now.
