    good luck, you are going to need it.

    If you do not like to write articles and have no money to buy some unique content, then maybe a different business would suit you.

    A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

      Walexy,

      I don't think your plan is a good idea. Why promote someone elses content? You have to keep their author's resource box and link with the article . . . so how does that help you? This really is a lazy way of trying to address the content issue. You would be better off having articles written for you, changing up PLR articles, or using public domain works.

      If you don't like to write there are alternatives. But when you're just starting out, if you can't afford the alternatives, then you have to find a way to get some money to fuel your business. Usually that is "sweat equity" that goes along with starting a business on a shoe string.

    Hey walexy007

    I would be very careful.

    Google will spot that you are posting duplicate content, and they will kick your butt for this.
    Just look at the countless stories of other people who had have tried to pull off this trick.

    Do things the right way.

    Either write the content yourself, or pay someone else to write it for you.

    Fivver.com and Iwriter.com are great places to get amazing articles and content for a cheap price!

    Good luck

    First off, Ezine is seen as pure trash by the search engines...so there's no value to those articles from an SEO standpoint. But if you hate to write and you don't have money to pay anyone else, then the rest of it really doesn't matter anyway. IM is not for you at this point in your life.

    Not a good idea and don't use article spinners either - these are tools from yesteryear. You'd be better off hiring an inexpensive writer on iwriter.com or some place like that, tweaking the articles yourself, and then posting that instead.

    Planning 50 niche sites without any realistic ways of providing content is not a great idea really.

    Start with just the one site and see how you can gradually build the content up to an acceptable level and go from there.

      This is what I would recommend, too. Create one niche site and build it up as time allows. If you don't like writing your own content, get a pack of PLR articles in your niche from the PLR Store and re-word them manually to make them unique. I wouldn't recommend ordering articles from Fiverr writers.

    It is pretty obvious you do not like writing by your lack of capitalization and misspellings.

    I would have suggested using EzineArticles as inspiration for producing your own content, but since you do not want to exert the effort, you need to pay someone who can and will write.

    You should at least use a free spinner online to spin the content. It makes no sense using the same content from Ezinearticles.com, your website will never rank on any of the search engines.

    NO that will not work. Don't even try without unique, exclusive content.

    That content has been re-distributed so many times, your site is going to be flagged as SPAM.

      Posting articles from sites such as ezinearticles is not "duplicate content" in the sense used here and will not attract any "penalty" from search engines as a couple of posts seem to suggest.

      Duplicate content in this context refers to content on YOUR website that is duplicated on other pages of YOUR website. Even here there is no "penalty" - any duplicated content will simply be disregarded. After all, why should there be a penalty? A site owner might well have very good reasons for repeating the same content on other pages of his/her website, to save visitors backtracking, for example.

      With regard to the OP's question I would suggest that using articles from ezine articles or any other article directory is not a great idea if they are the only content you have. Here's a few of reasons why:

      1. The articles will have links away from your site and might draw visitors away. These linked-to sites might also be better than yours!

      2. Search engines won't penalise your site but they won't give it much attention either.

      3. Sooner or later you will need to add genuinely useful, original content to the sites if you want visitors to take any notice so you might as well start doing this from the beginning.

    This will earn you zero income because you are going to add bunch of duplicate content on your website. I suggest go slow publish unique content. Re-write the articles yourself and post them on your website. In this way there are some chances that your content will be indexed and you will start getting some traffic to monetize later.
