Time and again our customers ask themselves whether buying texts is a sensible option. Providers like content.de or textbroker.de seduce with extremely low prices to buy all texts for their own website. At first glance, such offers also sound wonderful. Only about 2 cents per word for a professional text that is also search engine optimized. What you should pay attention to when buying texts and what you should avoid is shown in today’s article. We also show where you can buy texts.
What makes a good text?
Content seems to be the new miracle cure that helps you to advance your website to the top of the search engine. And indeed, we as SEO Agency write countless texts with our editorial staff every day to improve the ranking of our clients. However, you should still keep in mind that content is not the only ranking factor, but one of over 200 factors that determine how the visibility of a website develops.
If we now look at pure content, there are various quality factors that determine the value of a text. Before buying text you should make sure that these are met.
In order not to go beyond the scope of this article, we only touch on the most important features of an SEO text here. If you want to know more about this, you can read more about it in the article Create content. It is important to know that a text is not just a text and that search engines like Google take a close look at the structure and layout of texts. The first step is to analyze the keyword density, structure, linking and readability. But if you meet all these criteria perfectly, you are still far from reaching your goal.
The search engine will now test how valuable the content really is based on user behaviour. If the website visitor reads the text to the end, the user jumps off, does the user continue to search Google on the topic? The analysis of the behaviour shows us that it is not enough to write the perfect SEO text, you have to buy texts that inspire the user and additionally fulfill all SEO factors. Who now thinks that this is all, is far from it. If a search term is highly competitive and your website is still in its infancy, meaning you still have low visibility, then it will take some time until the site really ranks. For this you have to build visibility and become an authority in your own subject area.
Buy Unique Content
A good text must be fun, solve a problem or amuse the reader. Above all, it must be unique, easy to read and correct in content. And don’t be stingy with links to other websites. The search engines don’t like it if your website is a dead end. In order to avoid passing on the value of the text, you can store the NoFollow attribute in the HTML code. But this is only necessary if it is an advertising link. Links to editorial content can be left on follow, that is the purpose of the internet.
Quality of purchased texts
At the beginning of our agency we calculated how much editors and how much the content portals cost. We decided to hire a small number of editors for the time being and to cover the remaining text requirements of our customers via the content platforms. But we soon realized that a really good quality can only be achieved if you are also an expert in the subject and have a long-term perspective.
There are many good authors on the portals which can be booked by direct order. But here the price is then quickly at 12 cents per word. If you want to have a spellchecker on top of that, you pay extra. That is clearly too much. Our best copywriters cost the customer 4-5 cents per word and that includes editing.
If you now say that the quality of a 4-star author is completely sufficient and that not all SEO factors are fulfilled optimally, you should consider that the time needed to check for spelling and content is additional. If you also have to work on the text, you will quickly be back to 10 cents per word. If you don’t regularly work with the same author and the author doesn’t independently look for the places where good content is most lacking, you will spend a lot of time briefing the author, picking out the texts and creating the order template with your own ideas.
For those who have almost no money and can’t write their own texts in any way, portals with low bids are a good alternative.
Provider for content
Content can be purchased in many places. Each provider has its own advantages.
A content agency is a good solution to get high quality texts at a reasonable price. With a content agency you have the big advantage that the communication is flawless. You are always in direct contact in person or by phone and you don’t have to try to improve the tonality or the content by e-mail. There are many content agencies, also in quality and price there are differences. If you don’t commission us immediately ? you should pay attention to the following points:
- Price per hour or per word?
- How is the order placed?
- In what way are the texts transmitted?
- How do you check that the text has not been transcribed?
- Is the author familiar with the subject?
- Is the same author always responsible for your topic or do they change?
- Does the content agency write its texts with its own editors or does it buy them in?
- Can the content agency show texts which it has clearly written itself and which rank first on Google?
Of course, there are many more things that can be questioned, but for a rough estimate of the performance, the questions should be sufficient. If you are unsure, we will gladly offer you a free consultation.
