123helpme.com Review

Updated on September 22, 2014

Introduction

This is a good website that students would usually turned to for completing their given task or homework. There are many subjects that are found in this website. However, students advised to take this website as a reference site for ideas but not as essay samples deposit site because of possible grammatical mistakes.

How I found the website

This is a simple website that features collection of various essays ranging from literatures to scientific research papers. Its traffic is now ranked at 36, 691 (quite high actually) and has been online since 2000, with most of the traffic coming from Nigeria, Philippines, and Malaysia. I came across this site from Google search in the year 2009. I was researching for writing ideas of my biology lab report. It was a pleasant surprise that I got a similar lab report available for free on this site. That report solved my mind block at that time and had helped me to complete my assignment!

My opinions on using this website

I began searching for biology lab reports and other interesting essays on the site since then. Most articles on this site are average in quality, with occasional grammatical mistakes. Normally I search for argumentative, comparison, or persuasive IELTS essays. The design of the website is neat. Over the last 10 years, the site has accumulated a variety of essays which they categorised into various sections for easy navigation.

Normally, free essays are enough for me since I only search for essay writing ideas. Essay colour keys make it easy to distinguish the quality and the price of each piece of essay. The price of unrated essay is reasonable but I think that it is quite expensive for a term paper (24.95 USD). This website also provided some simple tools such as "Writer's Block Tool", "Topic and Title Generator" and "Vocabulary tools" to help students to generate better quality essays.

Besides, 123helpme team also opened a Facebook page which already gained over 10, 000 likes. This website included a YouTube introductory video on their homepage just to make the page more lively and attractive for visitors.

Donating my essays to the site

Once I discovered this website, I think that it was too wasteful if you left your corrected essay papers untouched at a corner of your house. So I decided to type my lab reports and IELTS essay papers out and donated them to this website. Imagine that there are thousands of people visiting this site every day, and your essay exposed to the people around the world if such essays published on the internet. It is a sense of accomplishment! It is better to upload your corrected essays to help other people around the world and not land them in wastepaper basket. If you create a blog to upload your essays, you may not get enough exposure because of low search engine ranking. But if you decided to upload them to Hubpages, Expertscolumn, Helium or Yahoo! Voices (formerly known as Associated Content), then that's a different story.

They are selling my essays!

Normally, it takes about 3 to 6 months for your essay to appear on the site. At that time, you can see how your essays rated according to essay colour keys. To my surprise, one of my biology lab reports rated as term paper, selling for 24.95 USD! Of course I didn't get even a single cent! Anyways, this is good chance for honing my writing skills because I am revising my essay while typing them into my computer. So do not expect a perfect collection of high quality essays because most of the essays hosted on 123helpme.com are donated by volunteers. If I am confident that my essay sold for profit, why should I give them to this website? That's why I have not purchased even a single article from this website.

Conclusion

Anyways, 123helpme.com is a good website for students to find inspirations or ideas for their work while widen their horizons on other people's opinion. I think that free essays hosted on this website are enough for you to hone your writing skills. Paid essays are not better than free essays.
