– Cheap Doesn’t Mean Good

Ever since, I started searching for quality article providers after Penguin update, Google began to show this company’s ad on everywhere I visited. This is a result of Google’s behavioral target, although I had it  disabled quite a long ago!’s price is more than inviting. They are super cheap. They have very nice visually impact website. Below is their service charge.

  • 200 words: $2
  • 300 words:$2.5
  • 500 words:$3.5
  • $5 for 800 words and $7 for 1000 words!

Exciting, right?

They boldly promise of professional writers, original well researched articles, natural keyword density, Google friendly LSI and unlimited revisions etc.

You need to create a free account before placing an order. From the dashboard, you can easily place and manage your orders. Personally I like this feature because I do not have to deal with sending private message on forums or through email.

Just to test and review their service I placed an order for 400 words simple article which needed few minutes of research. It took them 5 days to deliver. For the price, I did not expect anything brilliant, but hoping that the article would make sense, and I could use it with minimal edit. Below is the portion of the article.

The verdict:

  • The article is unique and readable but almost irrelevant to the topic I gave.
  • The author did not understand the topic and  struggled for words.
  • The article was neither written by a native speaker nor a professional writer
  • The writer does not even know how to use nouns and pronouns which is sad.
  • I do not know why it takes 6 days to deliver a low quality article
  • It looks like the service provider got it written by outsourcing to

Yes, it is still okay for submitting to cheap article directories or if your goal is to obtain a backlink by submitting unique and readable article.

Before closing

It is not wise to judge a service provider from a single article, but I’m afraid of trying them again. If you want to try, here is the link to the site – use at your own risk! In my opinion, most of the AWE’s clients are small marketers who do self SEO or cheap SEO/link building service providers who need consistent flow of fresh content. Hence TAT must be improved.


AWE’s owner Andrew contacted me on Skype and we had a long chat. He offered free unlimited revision. I did not accept revision as I felt it is unfair to ask revision for $3 article. Andrew is a nice guy with good business ethics; was willing accept and learn from mistakes and politely asked me to give him another chance. So, I have decided to try this service once again.

…will update this review again

    I’ve tried their service and I think it’s the best article writing service in that price level.
    I’ve tried a lot of other providers you have reviewed. This is probably the best comparing to them. Thank you for the review.
