Although I'm not a native English speaker, I have never had an issue with any of my clients. However, getting new clients is extremely difficult. There are enough Asians who have proved that non-natives cannot write well, creating hell for those who can. They have not only made client acquisition difficult but also ruined the market when it comes to rates. Most of my clients are US and UK based, and I provide them content for a mere $0.02 per word, simply because a huge bunch of Indians have ruined the market rates by supplying rubbish for $0.005. It's only now, after a year of building my profile that I'm able to get clients for 5 cents to 10 cents a word. Even today, I spend half my time convincing people that there are non-natives who can write, and I'm one of them. “Let me state upfront that I have no problems with those that aren’t native English speakers – well, except for those that try to pass themselves off as something other than that.” – TOTALLY AGREE.

Comment on White Hat? Black Hat? How ‘Bout Chaotic Neutral by Alan Bleiweiss http://www.webmasterchronic.com/site-news/white-hat-black-hat-how-bout-chaotic-neutral/comment-page-1/#comment-385 Alan Bleiweiss Tue, 27 Jul 2010 01:08:45 +0000 http://www.webmasterchronic.com/?p=158#comment-385 Ha! Just discovered this thanks to you linking to it from your awesome SEOBook article! Where's Paladin on this thing? Because I'm definitely an SEO Paladin... Or at least I am if that includes doing things even if they're not necessarily legal, but as long as they're good. And my life is pretty chaotic, so I guess an SEO Paladin would be found in the Chaotic Good quadrant... :-) Ha!

Comment on Basics and Cost of Buying Content for a Website by Hover http://www.webmasterchronic.com/make-money/content/buying-content/basics-of-buying-content/comment-page-1/#comment-360 Hover Sun, 06 Jun 2010 00:07:01 +0000 http://www.webmasterchronic.com/?p=353#comment-360 I think that buying content for a web site is a bad idea. If a person only works on a web site that they actually enjoy, writing their own content and getting somebody to edit it for them, if necessary, shouldn't be too hard. Buying content is kind of retarded. I think that buying content for a web site is a bad idea.
