Freelance writing jobs have become a huge thing over the past couple of years. One reason for that is because of googles new algorithm update.

This new update basically makes it to where quality content is what matters. Not only that but 1,000-2,000+ word articles tend to do amazingly well.

Before this update you could have very simply 500 word articles and they would rank on the first page with ease. Now you have to put some serious effort into these articles in order to rank.

That is good for freelance writers though. That means you get paid for 4x the amount of work that you were years ago. Plus, the system also likes frequent updates as well. So sites also must publish more articles on a regular basis. This also leads to more money for you.

So we figured we would put together a nice list of great places to find some of those awesome jobs.
