Has anyone written for www.justarticles.com? Is it similar to Write for Cash?

Thanks.

I didn't see anything about what they offer as far as opportunities for writers, but I personally wouldn't want to write for anyone who offers term papers for sale, as this site does. They are very upfront about it, too, not even any pretense that it's something else. I can't believe that's a legal business endeavor. Hmmmm.

I also noticed some grammatical errors on the site. If that matters to you...

I was curious so I asked them for information. I think I'm going to pass. They pay $3 -5 for 400- 600 word "keyword rich" articles.

So they pay $5 but how much do they charge for the articles when they sell them to clients?

There's someone else who is always advertising on Freelancewriting.com who pays $2-$5 per 300 word article as well. I spent one desperate weekend before the holidays writing 20 articles for her and it just wasn't worth the money. I told her I'd write for her if she paid more but she said she couldn't do that.

These keyword sites are taking off, but $2 - $5 per article? Aren't we selling ourselves too short?

I never looked at the website - I saw it advertised on a writing forum - can't remember which one - I did ask for more information and received the same repsonse. $5 or $3 per short article. They want 20-30 articles per week. Seems like too much effort to me for too little. Besides as a mom of 13 month old twins I don't have large blocks of time available to crank out pieces like this for bad websites.

Thanks !!!

I went and checked out their site, and I was offended. They make freelance writers sound bad, and the pay rate is insulting. These cheap content sites are all the rage these days, and I see ads like this everywhere. Some of them are just scams, although I'm not suggesting that this particular one is. I don't know enough about them to say either way. I just know that their site left a bad taste in my mouth.

My personal opinion of this type of market -in general- is that no serious writer should get involved with them. I feel it hurts our profession as a whole.

How successful can a site be when, in their own words: "Maybe you don't have time to do the writing for your website's, Just Articles provides original web content articles, term papers and ebooks to webmasters,..."
