Our focus at CONTENTAMIGO is Local SEO content as well as general SEO content. Verblio does not specialize in Local SEO content at this time.
Verblio requires you to sign up for a subscription in order to get content. There is no way around it. We found this very aggravating since many users aren’t able to commit to recurring charges. And content needs may vary from month-to-month.
CONTENTAMIGO does not require you to create an ongoing subscription for content. However, CONTENTAMIGO does offer a 10% discount on content orders if you sign up for a subscription.
Verblio is cheaper than CONTENTAMIGO, but that is by design. We want to offer a better product than Verblio so that’s why our content costs more.
Based on our experience, the quality of Verblio copy is hit or miss. Some orders had good copy, while others had poor copy. We consider run-on sentences, inaccuracies, vagueness, and grammar problems to be poor quality.
When we sent over our content briefs, it was common for the writers to ignore the content brief instructions.
We are partial of course, but we feel that CONTENTAMIGO’s content quality is better than Verblio because:
- We require all applicants to take an SEO content quiz. Those that don’t know the basics don’t make it to the next step.
- We require all applicants attend a video interview to make sure they are real people, and speak English fluently.
- We require all applicants to perform a test order before officially inviting them to the team.
- We supply our writers with training as needed. But we look for writers who already have skill.
- We pay our writers twice as much as Verblio.
- We look to hire those who want to stay on board long-term, not just those who are in college looking for a side job.
- We require that the Content Brief instructions be followed closely.
- We are strict with our content QA checklist.
- Our team is very happy and is not overworked!
Verblio does not post official turnaround time on their website. We contacted them to ask and were told 48-72 hours (2-3 days). When we ordered content via Verblio in 2022, we did notice that orders were completed quickly.
CONTENTAMIGO’s turnaround times are 10 business days, and we are diligent about getting you your orders on time.
CONTENTAMIGO creates detailed Content Briefs (manually filled out by humans with SEO skills) and we send them to you for approval before getting started on your copy. This way, you know exactly what your piece of content will cover before we write it.
Verblio does not create Content Briefs or include them in their orders. However, you can upload your own for them to use.
SEO Checks & Recommendations
When ordering Next-Level Content with CONTENAMIGO, we include the following SEO checks and recommendations with your orders:
- Plagiarism Check
- AI Check
- SEO Recommendations
- Page Title
- Meta Description
- Internal Links + Anchor Text (if applicable)
- External Links (if applicable)

Verblio includes some SEO recommendations with their orders but you have to pay extra.
Optimize for your meta description, URL, and headershttps://help.verblio.com/en/articles/2709107-what-is-optimize
However, Verblio does not include internal and external link recommendations.
Verblio does include images in their content orders but at an additional cost, while CONTENAMIGO supplies one free stock image with each content order.
Both CONTENTAMIGO and Verblio check your content for plagiarism.
Verblio does check for AI-generated content. At CONTENTAMIGO, we run your content through an AI detection tool just like Verblio does.
CONTENTAMIGO includes Schema Entities markup on all Next-Level Content orders. Verblio does not include Schema markup with their content orders.
Verblio does not offer Clearscope optimization. You can try to get their writers to write the copy in Clearscope but it was common for the writers to completely ignore that request. We would then have to ask them to re-do the order in Clearscope. This also delayed orders.
In addition, you will need your own Clearscope account. Verblio does not supply this for you. Clearscope starts at $170/mo.
CONTENTAMIGO offers Clearscope optimization on all Next-Level Content orders but we use our own Clearscope account. This saves you at least $170/mo + the pain of having to sign up for yet another service.
In conclusion, Verblio has its place and many enjoy its services. If you need content fast, Verblio may be a good fit for you. But if you are looking for better quality content that is still affordable, give CONTENTAMIGO a try!
