Good or Bad, I enjoy reading how EzineArticles is perceived by others. Most of the public postings get a private reply to resolve a misunderstanding.
Someone tried hiring an article writer to produce as many articles as they could for $30: Project: Article Writer
First, their request is absurd…but the reason I share this link is because of this section: “4. If 1 or more of the articles are not approved by ezinearticles, this means that they are not of good quality or not original content.”
–>Ok, while we’re honored that you’re using EzineArticles as a quality barometer, please don’t make us your ‘Copyscape’ because it’s the quickest way to find your account terminated for sending in non-original content.
Sorry about this Prince. We were wrong and you’ll be receiving a private reply on Tuesday where our support team will whitelist your name in our system to prevent author name confusion from happening again.
Ahhh schucks. :)
There are many others including blog entries on how to scam or game us…including encouraging multiple accounts being setup to submit multiple nearly identical articles. A lot of them go into great depth with videos produced and images showing step by step, etc… but I see two patterns from these bums: Pattern #1) Their EzineArticles account is brand new or less than a month old; Pattern #2) For some reason, their EzineArticles account is missing…Ã‚Â Ã‚Â The point: Don’t trust everything you read on the net especially from someone who has not had long-term success with whatever strategy they are promising will be the next breakthrough.
