Hi, We got an email offer from a company offering to write articles for us, they say they have over 300 website/blogs to submit them to. Is it still a good idea or way to get links or do you consider it to be bad for google since these sites might be low quality?
One quality article on one authoritative site will outrank 300 articles on bad sites. Not worth the risk IMHO, it sounds fishy. Think about quality, not quantity.
For what it's worth, I have two article writers with much more experience in my niche than I do. Normally you have to go out and find the real knowledgeable folks who will write, they don't come to you. That's been my experience.
