Hi Guys, Being in the content game it is easy to see why they have crept their prices up.  Freelancers are starting to push their pricing up even in the emerging economies where a lot of their writers come from.  I am not one to normally stick up for the competition but they have had pricing artificially low for a couple of years now.  But its horses for courses when 1 star rating is legiblethey do really lay out what you can expect from that sort of price point.  We too had a small price rise in January which I really didn't want to do but the current market is forcing peoples hands.

One question I would rise from the guys talking about spinning, does anyone agree with me that this latest algo is aimed at spunn content as I cant see how they an ignore that but target guys like Demand Media?  Your opinions gratefully received.

Almost everything I do involves spun content and I have seen no impact at all - in fact everything is going in the right direction still.

I pride myself on doing 'better than normal' spun content, so it always possible I am still above the detection threshold though.

4eyes.  Good test thx.  I had not tried 1 star since the start.  Worth trying again.  I guess people start at 1 star?
