    Your own or paid?

    So when you first start up your own blog or forum do you like to pay people to make content on your blog/forum?

    I know a lot of people like to do both; for the same reason I also do both.. I just like how you can get best ways both ways. Some people think it's cheating but I dont think it's cheating as long thats not all you do..

    Hmmm I don't really think a poll is necessary though. .
    I like writing, so its no for me. I prefer writing myself. Our topics are kinda corporate and can be complicated.

    I cant vote because i use both options. Some text i write myself and some text i buy from professional textwriters. It depens on how much work i have or if a topic is not interesting for me or i dont know what to write.

    My own written or rewritten content.
    I'm also member of FreeTrafficSystem.com, which is free and gives you free quality posts on your blog almost daily and up to 60 backlinks for every post you do in the network. Spinning option is integrated, but use a unique article every time you submit one and spin that.

    This is where most of the 3200+ posts on my blog are coming from and I get 500-1500 visitors a day...sometimes more, sometimes less.

    This service lets you write articles and submit them to max 30 blogs that are registered in their system, containing 2 backlinks (anchor text links) per article. You can spin the article using a very easy syntax.
    So you'll get 60 backlinks per submitted article. You have to search relevant forums by simply using a keyword like "Internet Marketing" and you'll get a list of blogs with relevant content. Chose 30 and submit. The article will be posted automatically, auto approved and spread over one or two weeks before it's posted on all 30 blogs. Natural linkbuilding...

    Ofcourse if you have a blog and you want free quality content added on a regular basis...register your blog(s) and use a no-follow plugin to make links in posts no-follow.
    Lots of pingbacks and sometimes comments will be posted on your blog as well. Make sure you have Askimet active...

    Then use an rss and/or social media auto posting plugin, so every new post is spread over several networks...meaning more backlinks.

    I hope that answers your question somewhat...

    I prefer writing my own content. It's hard to find good content writers for cheap or affordable prices. Even if you can find good content writers no point spending money for that unless you have a really big project/s. But I have started wondering about should I add none English content to my sites. Google has localized the search engine so French people searching only Google.fr which has only French content result mostly.

    I like to share whatever I know uniquely. It feels good when people finds your content useful and return to the blog many times. Its a good way to increase readership and many more.

    Why we pay for the content? Because we have a good expectation of getting good traffic and readers from that content. But if we can be little active by doing little active in the same field at where we are then we can boost the level of the blog. For example, write some unique content about whatever you know, guest post in related blog, comments for backlinks and readers the traffic heads out to the way!
    Hello there.

    Perhaps the website is for commercial purpose and talk about corporate information, I will consider pay service. For own blog, I will write my own, as it is my origin view point. Own writing is more friendly to reader.

    I too use both the options. I write blogs myself, but for articles and PR its better to have a writer.

    I hired a content writer for this purpose and i pay him therefore i will say i am paying for content, in my opinion we should try to write own content rather then content writers.

    In my case, I myself write content. Also I write content for others too. Its purely depends on time and proficiency. I have came across many people who can write great content themselves but don't have enough time for it.
