Many authors wonder what elements Textbroker considers when they are rating submitted articles. When rating determines your pay, it is really important to understand what affects your rating and how to find resources to help you improve. We've had many questions on what we are looking for, or how our rating works, so we decided to cover some of the main points in our blog. Here are some errors that our editors look for and some supplemental information that may help you reach your writing goal.
You have probably heard about the “Heartbleed” bug over the past few days. Heartbleed is a vulnerability in OpenSSL encryption software. The vulnerability has affected the security of some businesses information that is normally protected by SSL/TLS encryption. The concern is that user data is vulnerable to theft.
Beginning April 10th, we did a thorough investigation and put in new security measures to ensure that your data is safe with Textbroker. Currently, Textbroker data has not been compromised and is not affected by this bug. We will continue to monitor our servers for any potential issues. However, we recommend that you change your password in case you are using that same password on a site that has been affected. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us!
