Who are the best SEO content writers for hire in 2023?

I don’t know.

There hasn't been a vote.

But I do know 8 great freelancers (not counting myself) who have a knack for writing and ranking blog content.

They’re wonderful to work with, they charge reasonable rates, and they each come equipped with an internal quality-control meter that makes them incapable of dishing out trash content.

I asked each of them to give me their elevator pitch, a list of their past clients and the services that they offer, their rates, and their contact information.

I’ve published their answers below.

Check ‘em out!

Oh — and you’ll have to forgive me for putting my own face right at the top of the article. Such is the way of the online marketer.
