Neuron Expert Authors

A crazy idea: Perhaps instead of only identifying our authors as “Expert Authors” or “Platinum quality level authors”, we could create a new level of author status:

Got Brains? Write Your Own Articles

Expert Neuron Original Author

Definition: Unique type of author found in the community that is specialized to write and submit original content articles that they wrote directly from their own neuro-network rather than the neuro-net of someone else (such as a ghostwriter).


Now, ghostwriters, don’t get all bent out of shape on me over this as I’m not saying ghost writing is bad, wrong or evil. I’m saying your clients are bad, wrong and evil when they fail to quality control articles they purchase from low voltage ghostwriters.

Does anyone know of any industry standards group to help separate the evil ghostwriters who sell their clients plagairized crap vs. the honest and hard working ghostwriter?

Some in the ‘woo woo’ camps say that there is no such thing as an “original thought”, but there are clearly articles written by original authors who deserve a different level of respect than the author who bought the articles they posted on our site.

What do you think?

Very funny! Although you may be sending the wrong message to those who are searching for content. They may think everything but the “Neuron” articles are ghostwritten or ripped off.

You might be kidding about this new description. Are you?

How about a Platinum Author Feed page on this site? People who seek a higher level of quality as opposed to the mediocre keyword article spitter could go there and know that they’re viewing the work of qualified professionals who put love and care into every drop of what they produce.

Yes, I am kidding about this description… but I wasn’t kidding about the implied need to identify original articles vs. ghostwritten articles.

Right on Chris!

I have to say that as a busy webmaster I have on occasion used a ghostwriter but it is of course a catch 22. If you pay very little you get crap (I am so happy I can say that now) – if you pay good money then, well, you pay a lot. In both cases you will need to edit – more for the crap of course.

If you use article sources such as yours it takes time to find the truly good stuff – and then you shouldn’t edit, even if you want to.

What is a site owner to do? Google et al want to see much content to give a good ranking but who else but the uber-writers have time? Heck, look at how long it’s taken me to write this!

All I can say is, go for it. If you can find a way to sort the wheat from the chaff, so much the better…

I agree with the need to separate original-content articles from that of ghostwritten articles. While quality ghostwritten articles can serve a good purpose, it can be frustrating as an author to take the time to write, publish and promote original-content articles that are competing with articles that have been copied, pasted and published over and over again using different author names. I would find it useful if there was a way for authors to publish articles to one of two classifications: original publication or ghostwriter publication. Then have the articles appear throughout the site as they do now, but with a small icon that identifies each article’s classification.

Separating the entities can serve a great purpose and benefit everyone. By identifying original authors, webmasters/publishers who have been impressed by an author’s previous article(s) receive the benefit of selecting and publishing multiple articles by the same author with confidence that the quality of the content will be consistent because the source is the same. This would enable original authors to more efficiently achieve the reputation, respect and link popularity that they seek. By identifying ghostwritten articles, webmasters/publishers receive the benefit of knowing up front, that the articles are not originally written by the named author but yet still offers them same diverse selection of article topics that they are seeking at Those submitting ghostwritten articles will benefit in the same ways that they do now. It’s a win-win situation for everyone in my opinion.
