Most of the websites and blogs need unique articles, blog posts, and other content on daily basis to keep the visitors engaged. After all, it is important to keep your visitors on your website or blog for longer period.

This can be achieved through quality content - articles, photos, videos etc. An updated website or blog catches attention fast. Search engines love updated sites and visitors love to visit such sites regularly. The website business is all about traffic and it needs to be consistent to earn good income.

It is not a feasible option for a website or a blog owner to produce fresh content on daily basis. By fresh content, I mean unique articles, images and videos. Since these things are the most important aspect of any website or blog, webmasters hire ghostwriters and content producers to get exclusive content for their websites/blogs.

Hiring ghostwriters can be a daunting task. Basically, there are two types of writing services on the web:

1. Individual writers managed by freelance services providers

2. Group of writers managed by a writing services company
Individual writers are professionals who don't have a website. They have good writing skills and offer their services on outsourcing platforms such as elance.com or guru.com. These writers are established individuals who bid on projects regularly and impressive portfolios. The only problem with hiring individual writers is management! You have to manage and communicate with the writer/s everyday. You have to find out ways to give him/her specific instructions and make sure that he/she follows those instructions. Moreover, finding a writer who understands your writing style, and has specific knowledge in your subject area or niche is heck of a job.

The other type is writing services company. They have a proper website loaded with writing samples and some of them even offer money back guarantee. You can contact one of these content providers and sit back. You don't have to move a finger. They choose a writer who understands your niche and can write on any topic related to it. You get customer service and quality. In addition to this, the content provider manages the writer/s for you and all you have to do is receive your articles and post them on your website or blog. Negative aspect of this type of service is that content providers never offer the facility to contact writer personally. They usually charge before the service. Their money-back guarantee is very loose and they won't refund your money in full in case you don't like their services.

There are many websites out there offering writing services and other type of content. The question is how can you rely on a specific writing service? Which aspects should you consider while hiring ghostwriters? Here are a few tips to consider when you go out shopping for a writer or a writing service:

1. Check out as many writing services websites as you can. Select those services that have creditability and testimonials on their website. If you want to hire an individual writer, you should either visit guru.com or elance.com. The best writers often bid on the projects there. Find the best writer who can write on any topic in your niche and has general knowledge.

2. Don't rush to hire a writer or a writing service. Contemplate on asking a few questions about the service or checking their samples first. By checking the samples, you can judge their writing style and uniqueness of the content.

3. Always ask about a refund policy if you are going after content providers.

4. Always consider reading the writing sample in detail and ask them about writing style and estimated time of accomplishment (ETA). If you are going for an individual writer, ask him/her to show writing samples. Question them about the expected turnaround time and when they will be able to complete the project.

5. Always ask about the origin of a writer. Native English writers charge more but their articles have better quality and good composition.

Guru.com is a very unique service. Their management system is great and they protect your money. The writers are more genuine and have proven backgrounds. Check the bidder scores to get an idea of the guru.com's ranking system. Elance.com is a bit risky. Most of the writers over there are non-native Indians who might have good English writing skills, but their sentence structure and grammar is queer and relates to post colonial British English.

There are quite a few content providers on the web. Some of them are famous but have some drawbacks. For example, getmecontent.com has Indian writers. Zipwriting.com doesn't have a variety of writers so that cannot offer writing services for all major niches. Editorworks.com has good refund policy and native English writers, but their service is blog oriented. If you have a blog, you might want to try editorworks.com. If you need articles for your squidoo page, hubpages, flixya, or gather.com, you might want to try iwebcontent.com. They have a unique client protection program that gives maximum security to the customers. Iwebcontent.com is a bit expensive because the writers are all Americans and they have good quality service. So if you want quality, you might want to try iwebcontent.com.

So choose well! Spend some time on these sites and checkout their samples. Chat with them and see which service can provide value for your money. Remember, fresh content is very necessary for your website or blog. Choose a writer and stick with him/her. You will see an increase in your traffic and a good conversion rate. After all, the traffic comes to read something unique on your site and if your website or blog is niche specific, you might need lots of quality articles to provide unique information to your customers.
