    having written - correctly used?

    Hello all!

    I have searched for it and found a lot of webpages having written this kind of sentences....

    Is this a correct sentence? I am especially curious to know whether or not "having written" is correctly used.


    Thank you very much.

    I am looking forward to your answers!

    No, it's incorrect.

    You can say: "I have searched for it and found a lot of webpages using this kind of sentence."
    Consider using "many" instead of "a lot of."

    I have no problem with "a lot of".

    I would not use "a lot of/lots of" in letters and formal documents.
    I am not a teacher.

    There is no evidence that the OP's post was either.

    I have searched for it and found a lot of webpages which use these kinds of sentences/this kind of sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
