    Yes!

    Copied articles word for word from sites like moneymanager.com.au, rams.com.au, yourmortgage.com.au and others. Then he was trying to tell me how good he was for writing them.

    Something triggered my alarm bells late last night, so I ran Copyscape over the site, and it went nuts.

    I'm not in a good frame of mind right now, I can't believe I've been suckered by this idiot. What a waste of $$$$$.

    If anyone can recommend a good SEO writer that writes UNIQUE content, please let me know ASAP.

    You could give www.textbroker.com a shot. I've used their services and content was good and very affordable (make sure you pick the 4 or 5 star quality level and specify your needs in the 'author instructions')

    Don't feel too bad. We have all lost $$$ on junk services and scammers.

    That said, the least he could of done is spun the articles a bit. Ripping content word for word that's just lazy. The first thing I do when ever I'm dealing with a content writers is check the originality of their articles.

    :rolleyes:

    I don't suppose you want to name and shame the guy? Maybe together we could engage in some reputation tarnishing...

    :rolleyes:

    Any chance you'll get your money back?

    All good, a can of Bundy eased the pain.:cool:

    No names, I'm not into that. His shame is knowing that he lost a customer that needs about 15 sites fully developed, and ongoing content for them.:p

    Maybe I should ask him.:rolleyes:

    No it doesn't. It's still disgusting in QLD too... it's probably worse if you're were the average QLD teen given we were more likely to have abused ourselves on it in earlier years.

    Yep, Queenslander born and breed, but like WroGeneral said "you don't have to be from qld to love bundy rum."

    Thanks for all the advice and leads guys, I'm following up on a few on them right now. Will be get this site back on track soon, and hopefully start making some ROI from it.:)
