These websites are good for general writers. Do you know where I can find employment, HR, and workplace culture writers? UpVote Reply 1 Upvotes. Thanks for posting this post! I need a good quality content and for the majority of the platforms just sell block of content without any informations about the writers.
With Google E-A-T concept, reputation of the writers is very important today. UpVote Reply 2 Upvotes. In many times, the word good quality is quite vague and it creates unnecessary unhealthy competition in the market. As you referred google in this case, therefore I would be prompted to say that first of all if you just go through the article then you can easily understand if the quality is good or bad and in most cases, uniqueness and clean writing matters more than a so-called piece from a 5 start writer.
At least google does not see any difference. Yet they are simply trying to create a bogus competition in the market only to increase the price against a writer, a writer can easily fetch tons of money if a 5 start, pro tag, excellent badge be attached with it. And that hurts the rising writers as if only the so-called 5 start writer can write and others are nothing.
So, when we are talking about quality then I think we should refrain from the marketing tricks. Good list. UpVote Reply 0 Upvotes. Great job on that and really informative, gone come back after to learn more. Glad that I turned to freelancing at some point in my career.
