Beware of Fiverr top article writers. Articles are being written in html coding output like in Article Builder(I'm just using as example-there is a box to check for this in Article Builder) to pass Copyscape. These articles will not rank in Google because Google doesn't see your keywords the way you do. I had 3 articles written by them with weird issues. All 3 articles passed copyscape but would not rank for SEO. (I had coders check the documents and they showed me the html coding used to fool me)Google will see this as possible blackhat issues. Beware of Fiverr writers. Doing a manual search I found my articles had been written over 50 times. This is not an advertisement for Jonathan Leger.(Its just the truth)I've had I Need Articles written for sales pages and they have done an excellent job for me.(The price is higher than Fiverr) No bs to put up with.To guarantee success always pay extra for the script box for details of your article.I just found these answers today after a week of investigation. Now I have to go back and remove all the work from many websites including facebook.(pay again for new articles)This is a bad day for Fiverr

This is not a new issue but it is far from being generally the case that Fiverr members sell these encoded articles. Some do, they are a rip off. Also, we should remember that some buyers actually want these encoded articles.

I always check reviews for providers. If there is a problem it shows up here.

Of course, an encoded article is not exactly hard to spot. ;)
If you are provided content as an HTML page then you are being ripped off.

Only ever accept content delivered as a .txt or a Word document - I prefer .txt files, quicker easier and more 'Internet compatible'.

By the way, this is what 'encoded text' looks like:

I don't quite know how people can actually get misled by these tricksters.  :o

If you do manage to buy this type of content from Fiverr providers without noticing then make sure to inform Fiverr, they have a vested interest in keeping their marketplace clean.
Of course this is not just a Fiverr thing. Pretty much any marketplace where buyers deal directly with sellers is open to abuse by both parties.

The few cases where I got an article not written by me  I've always copied the text out and into another application (i.e. Hemmingway, StyleWriter, etc) to check for spelling, grammar, passive voice, duplicate words, etc) then save out as TXT.
