Don't want to open this up to the public as I only really trust VIP opinions.
I have GSA Content Generator, had WordAi + GetArticlePro, had Article Forge, didn't like SCM.
While CG is fast and a one-off payment, I just get jibberish, original links in the articles, formatting is all over the place, and unrelated content to the keyword. Same as Article Forge.
Yes, I can create 1500 articles in minutes but I have to then spend the next few hours filtering through the duplicates, deleting lots of the content within the articles, editing and adjusting the formatting that it's just a waste of time.
I can outsource writing for $3 per 500 words, yeah it's gonna read pretty poorly but as long as it's unique I don't mind - you'd think that with that said that I'd be happy with auto-generated content, but if I were to pay per piece I'd want a refund or $0.00003 per 500 words to put a figure on it. Sorry - not having a dig at you Sven, your products are great but maybe I'm using CG wrong, but Article Forge was exactly the same. I know it's only as good as the articles that are out there ready to be scraped, but I'm having a horrible time with it.
FWIW I have around 1300+ keywords, in all niches, some are fairly broad ie small business loans, mens watches etc which you'd think would be easy to find lots of articles on those. Like I said I tend to get 1500 articles per scrape. I end up throwing 90% of those away as they are 90% the same article apart from the titles are spun from each other. Yeah I only want 100 or so articles in reality for my PBNs but they are the best of a really really bad bunch.
At the moment, I'm thinking of throwing £2500 at changing all of the PBN content to hand-written, and have another £1650 for new sites, if I decide to go that way. So, as I'm very frugal (optimised I like to call it), it pains me to pay Indians to not listen, write shite, and expect paid.
What do you guys use for PBNs? What the fk am I doing wrong with CG (I've made enough threads in the public CG forums and not found the solution)? Is Article Forge any better than it was 6 months ago?
Maybe it's my history as a writer/editor that makes me picky, but I have been spot checking the articles I put on my PBN sites (I bulk load them) and they are terrible and unrelated to the keyword/niche in many circumstances.
