I am not too excited about free web site content myself; however, I know that many of my website readers are interested in obtaining free content. My role is to help you to fulfill your needs, not to make decisions for you.
I have never used free content for my website because I feel that it diminishes the quality of a website as well as hurting the search engine ranking. I prefer to use custom-made content that says pretty much what I want it to say. My content is a reflection on me and I want total control of it.
If you aren't a control freak (like I am) and you aren't worried about the content hurting your search engine rating (like I do) or being a risk to your reputation (another personal problem), here are some tips for getting free web site content
If you just want to provide new content for your visitors to read and you are not into blogging, free news feeds are an option.
If your website visitors are not necessary interested in the news, you can chose a RSS feed that they are likely to be interested in. There are a lot of feeds that are industry related and would be of interest to your readers. The downside of that is, the feeds may advertise competitors on your website.
There are a bunch of article directories that let you republish articles of your choice, or they provide them in your selected category through a feed.
Ezine article directories contain articles that are written by professionals in a certain field. In most cases, you can publish the unchanged article without paying royalties.
From time to time, if I find articles that are helpful to my readers and are written by an expert, I will consider republishing it in my newsletter, but never on my website. I realize that it is a personal choice whether or not to reuse content. If you have your mind set on finding free web site content, I hope that this article has helped you.
If you have decided to stay away free content and you want to get custom-made content, consider hiring a content writer to fulfill your needs. We give free quotes on developing custom content.
