Keyword Article Writing: Yes or No?

For many freelance writers, keyword article writing is where they start. Generally speaking, these articles are pretty easy to understand. They are articles based around a “keyword” as to help with search engine rankings. Since more and more people are hoping to make money online, more and more keyword articles are going to be needed.

The question is: does writing these articles make you a freelance writer? To me, the answer is a resounding YES. Some will tell you that you are doing nothing more than wasting your time with keyword articles; the reason being that you will not get paid a lot of money. But in my opinion, just because you are not earning $1/word from a national publication does not make the writing any less important.

What type of money can keyword article writing bring in? From my experience, this can differ greatly. Early in my career, I was writing these short pieces for as little as $3 an article. While this would be a time waster for me right now, back then I was happy to be generating income; no matter what it was from. I still write keyword articles from time to time, and I usually earn anywhere from $15 to $20 for 400 words or so. Again, this may not seem like a lot, but look at it this way. If a client orders a batch of 20 articles at $20 each, that is a $400 project. Five of these projects a month and you are earning $2,000. Not bad, right?

All in all, keyword article writing is far from copywriting. But with that being said, it is a viable way to make money. There are tens of thousands of webmasters who are willing to pay writers a decent rate to produce a high quantity of keyword articles. Don’t overlook this income stream if you are interested in becoming a freelance writer.
