Okay, First, thank you wheel,I love the input. My content/ article writers are what I would call grade "B". I spend $600 per month on 40 articles.
Although the content IS unique, it does lack the umph! I see on my larger competitor's websites. That's not to say the articles are bad.
I would love to send you to my articles section to get your opinion. However, being a newb here I don't know if that's frowned upon.
So if I am hearing you correctly, It would be better to spend the $600 on 10 quality articles than the 40?
Assuming I do so, how do I solve the problem of getting quality blogs to let me place them? Or should I keep them as original content on my site?
