    Your welding website has numerous errors, some laughably wrong.

    If you find someone, their first job should be to clean up your welding "information."

    It currently reads like a high school research paper with randomly sourced facts.

    All very good questions. I used to be the managing editor of Welding Design & Fabrication, and Gases & Welding Distributor. I had the same questions. This seems more than freelance. Why would you need to respond on Skype? Notice he hasn't responded to any of these posts.

    Exactly, that was filler content published years ago to get the site started and get indexed in Google. - That's why we're currently hiring people with first-hand experience with welding so that we can transition it into a really good source of information.

    True, there are a lot of Amazon affiliate links. - The site hasn't had much new content in years. The whole reason behind hiring a good welder with firsthand experience is to write something that provides real value to the readers. As mentioned we're truly looking to revamp the site, which is why wer'e hiring.

    - Up to 20k words of quality content writing per week (can do down to 5k per week if that fits better)
    - Paying via PayPal. Pay within 3 days of article delivery.
    - Payment rate is to be discussed over Skype. It's impossible to say, because it depends on a lot of factors (your writing, expertise etc..)

    What do you mean in regards to "more than freelance"? As mentioned in the article we're looking for a freelance writer? That's simply all.
    The reason for Skype is because that's our main point of contact with all our current writers for other sites. It just works for us. But I can continue the conversation with mail for you, if you want.

    Now that you have returned, why are you wanting to create this resource?

    Is it as a way to sell product?

    Just looked at the site, huh? First article I read was a review of the AHP AlphaTig 200. First half of the review was about a Plasma cutter, with a foot pedal, second half was actually about the Tig machine. I have the Alphatig 200, obviously the review is outdated, the specs aren't correct for the model. The site did a review on the Superultra, I have the Powerultra, which is very similar, dont agree with all the information. Just read a little more into the site, sure does seem more like a sales site than a welding site. Just dunno. Guess see if it pans out to something worth while?

    I don't see why anyone is surprised that a web site that identifies itself as a "welding magazine" would be a sales/advertising platform. Any magazine is pretty much about creating a revenue stream. It costs money to setup and populate the site with attractive articles to draw in potential customers either for the site operator directly or for the featured advertisers. There is very little content on the web that is not offering a way for you to contribute to their revenue stream.
    The challenge for Adam is to generate content that draws in clients and get it out where likely customers will see it..

    Of course they are trying to sell things and make money, nothing wrong with that. But I do appreciate when someone wants to make money by providing a compelling service, compelling information, a compelling product, compelling entertainment, etc.

    It seems that HealthyHandyman and WeldingChamps want to pick the best "selling" products on Amazon, stick together a "review" which is little more than a flowery stating of a few specs from the Amazon page, and a general summary of the concensus of the positive Amazon reviews. They throw in a few "cons" to make the review sound official, but the "reviews" don't seem to offer any value above what you'd get by just checking the Amazon page. On the HealthyHandyman site the main page claims it is written and reviewed by experts. With the factual and logical errors that are obvious in many of the reviews, this seems suspect.

    They seem to be looking for someone with welding experience for the welding centered site, and I genuinely hope they intend to provide truly useful info. But I suspect that they mostly hope to channel people searching on Google for the most commonly purchased items on Amazon through their site to make a commission off the sales. Again, fine, gotta make money. But getting that traffic with reviews that are little more than poorly written, error-filled marketing fluff based on spec sheets and other people's reviews seems un-inspiring.

    There have been some jabs on here about the WeldingChamps site, and the OP seems to want to clean the site up. But on the HealthyHandyman site, the five best drills article smacks of the same type of cringe. One of the drills has a positive (and the big benefit that helped it make the list) stated as fast charging. But it only includes one battery and a four hour charger (which is worse compared to most drills having a one hour or so charger and including two batteries). I would think battery charging downtime would be one of the biggest cons of that drill. There article also states that a drill's power is purely determined by voltage. On one drill the writer gets giddy about the amazing feature this drill has, which is two speed settings (which is a feature most of the others also had, but it wasn't mentioned). One of the "Best Drills of 2018" was discontinued and no longer available. One recommended drill is an older model, and the newer version is the same drill, but includes better batteries and costs less. Sure, the older one is still technically available, but you would hope a site that was helping steer people towards the "best" would point out the far better buy. One of the recommended drills had a dead link, and one linked to a totally different drill. This was stuff found from a quick skimming of the article. I would likely find more if I checked closer.

    I think they need an experienced writer for that site too. No offense. If they are doing their best and working to improve, great. I wish them all the best. But if HealthyHandyman is the bar which WeldingChamps aspires to reach, then it's not likely to become a one-stop-shop for all the best welding info.

    8 Steps to Weld Cast Iron Like a Pro . Hmmm I can do that weld in 3 steps.

    "If you see tiny cracks or rips in the iron after welding, don’t panic. That’s a typical sight. It’s almost impossible to avoid when you’re welding cast iron. Don’t worry, you can always fill those small cracks using a watertight sealing compound.'' Ahhhhh, I must have been doing something wrong all these years. I'll have to practice on getting those cracks or rips.

    Yeah, I understand that the content was "filler" and it was written a long time ago, or whatever. But the current info is worse than nothing. It is missleading and confusing at best, and much of it is factually incorrect.

    In the spirit of providing "even more great content to our readers" I think they should take down all the articles and reviews and put up a sitewide notice along the lines of "Website is undergoing a complete renovation and re-write. We'll be back soon, better than ever with accurate information written by experienced welders."
