Screw you and your terrible, terrible content

gorilla typing

I just clicked on an ad for a company advertising super cheap content articles for just 19 cents per 100 words…

That’s stupid cheap. How good could it possibly be?

Here’s an excerpt from one of their health and wellness samples:

“A great way to get omega 3 fatty acids is by consuming fish oil supplements. This is a great way to get the omega-3s from the fish oil supplements. Omega 3 fish supplements are known to be useful in the prevention of heart attacks. Fish oil has been shown to be effective in reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.”

a) Guess which keywords they’re targeting?

b) Guess how Google is going to react to this content when they see how terrible it is, and how clearly keyword stuffed it is? (Spoiler: Not good.)

Screw you and your terrible, terrible content, you terrible, terrible content farm.

If you’re a business owner and you need content, please, please don’t stoop to this.

If you are not prepared to hire a real writer to create quality relevant content for your audience, you’re better off to have NO content than this crap.
