I often pay $5 to $10 for an article 500 words but honestly my writers have not known about SEO and IM thus articles that they give me not as my expectation. I like to find US writers, they understand which I want and provide quality articles.

Fiverr, Freelancer and Seoclerks,...There are too many Indian on these sites, some account faked as US writers and after I hired and received articles then I know I hired a Indian writer, not US writer.

Just want to know how to find exact a good writer? does anyone has experience on hiring writers?

For a top quality SEO article I would trust someone who charges $15 or more per article and it has to be at least 800+ words.

To make sure it's good for seo, there are a couple of things I look out for. First thing I check is the grammar and spelling errors.

The next thing is whether the article says the same thing that is already available online. This is the reason I stopped buying articles, when I post an article for people to read I want the reader to have a WOW moment. I want them to find ninja tricks that they'll never find with a simple Google search.

But if the article has 1 or 2 ninja tricks then it's good. Next I look at keyword stuffing. I want the targeted keyword to be mentioned once or twice in the article and then use synonyms as well as related keywords.

Those are the things I look out for when buying articles. Hope that helps :)

You should pay at least $25 if you expect someone to do a decent job. I usually pay between $30-$45 per article. Since I live in the US, I prefer to hire american writers because there are some differences between how americans write and how brits or indians write. American writers usually charge more.
