Is PLR content still popular? Would welcome your opinion & input

17 replies
Hello Warriors,

I am curious to know if PLR content is still popular? Do people who want to create sites, blogs, e-books, e-newsletters still eagerly seek out PLR content?

I'm a writer and am would love to know an IM's opinion, what they are looking for. If they seek out PLR, what they especially like to see in PLR (such as a certain word count or # of posts/articles).

Thank you so much for your time and help. I've been researching this topic with my buddy Google, but I think hearing actual people's opinions would be super helpful!

Best,

Abby

    Hi Abby,
    I would say yes, I was looking at jvzoo offers the other day, just this year alone there were over 30 "pages" of PLR offers.

    I think most of us would be surprised at how much PLR is used in IM. We never know, of course, because those who use it wisely make their PLR something that is not recognized as such.

    Personally, word count or number of articles mean nothing to me.

    I look for high quality, fresh, unique content that has a level of detail and expertise. I'm looking for new content that isn't found elsewhere and that content should be authoritative and accurate. It typically requires research, which many PLR writers refuse to do.

    Most PLR is not what I have just described. I admit I am "picky" about what I buy but I pay very well for it because it will save me time in the long run - fewer edits and modifications.

    Bottom line . . . the best PLR is always high quality valuable content.

    If you are planning to drive paid traffic or from social media, then PLR content could be great for your business. It would save your a lot of time. but one major disadvantage is that it is very difficult to rank them in search engine.

    The days of "throwing stuff together" and successfully selling it as PLR are over....

    However, high quality PLR will always be in demand.... An excellent example of this is Sharyn Sheldon's Content Sparks.

    Another PLR great to follow is Tiffany Lambert at PLR Articles By Tiffany Lambert:

    Get on her email list and see how and what she promotes.

    There are several Facebook groups for PLR providers you might want to consider joining those, too.

    Wow. IMO, to ask the question "Is PLR still popular" is about the same as asking if Kim Kardashian still breaks the internet. It is without a doubt an utter "yes".

    The problem is that there are so many different plr sellers and different plr emails which can get caught up in your inbox (or wherever you're looking for plr offers) and as a result of that, you get information overload just from trying to find out what plr product to buy. To me it seems like every day there's a new plr launch... like how do customers use the stuff they just bought yesterday !?

    But to answer your question, of course people (plr users) are still seeking out newsletters, ebooks, articles, blog content, sites, software and some other different forms of plr content.

    I don't mean to reiterate anyone's post but what Steve said I wholeheartedly agree with.

    Sometimes post count or keyword density don't mean a thing if the content doesn't make any sense. I would rather invest in a piece of plr content that can engage me, pull my attention and inform me of what I am looking for versus some "400 word 15% keyword dense nonsensical article" that took up 10 minutes of my time (and I didn't learn anything). At the end of the day, that's how the search engines will truly reward you.

    But if you're really looking for a word count, generally you can't go wrong going over 600+ words.

    YES, PLR still is beautiful....for WHAT?

    For Seo purposes: building web 2.0 sites linked to main site, i mean Tier1 and tier 2 and tier 3.

    For an example, is good having software like Spinrewriter with api, to implement this in other seo software which builds or manage 2.0 sites, and other tier for seo purposes, automatically rewrite articles and put them in these "junky" sites, for linkin juice.

    Thanks for posting this question, Abby. Myself and my partner are looking at using PLR and we had been wondered the same thing.

    In fact she bought an article from Tradebit a couple of days ago. The problem came when, having paid some £6 for the article, they stuck her for an extra £20. Fortunately her bank refunded the money and blocked Tradebit having access to her account. Apparently they have another company which charged the £20 which she was not made aware of.

    Anyway, we are both still interested in using PLR still, just being more cautious.

      Same here. Most of it looks like it's either well out of date or so generic it becomes meaningless. The article my partner got was related her interest as in crafts so being dated is not a problem.

      I do wonder if, in the end, as you will probably need to rewrite the article to make it different from everyone else's, it would be less hassle to just do the research and write your own articles. That or go to Fiverr or Upwork.

      Maybe someone could recommend a site.

        Yes, that's why it's called PLR - private label rights - you are buying a license to modify the content so that it is different than what others will do with it.

        The problem with researching and writing your own articles is the fact that many people don't have the time, inclination, or writing talent to do original work. So they buy PLR content and hire a freelancer to work it over for them. Just be aware that many freelancers that claim to be great writers . . . aren't be any stretch of the imagination.

          Well, I do have an excellent imagination but I have a feeling even mine wouldn't stretch that far.

    I would definitely say that PLR products are more useful to newcomers to internet marketing. There really are only about 20 -30 or so subjects in the IM space and if you've been around for a while the stuff gets pretty repetitive.

    How many ebooks or videos on list building can you digest over time? Or advertising on Facebook? It's not to say there aren't occasional new insights or tips and tricks, but you'll have to invest to find out, even if its only your email address. And you also have the option of checking any subject out on YouTube.

    I suppose the same can be said for the multitude of courses available. Who has the most bonuses? Who has the better reputation? Who charges the least?. You need some experience to wade through all of this and it's still caveat emptor at the end of the day.

    I'd recommend a connection with a PLR site, if only to see what's coming down the pike. But it is the newbies who will benefit the most.



    (I rest my case)

    Most certainly! Quality PLR is alive and well and we use it regularly.

    There is no certain niche we focus on. Like to see a word count about 900 for each article. It does not matter one way or anther if graphics are included, would rather have quality content over graphics any day.

    Wishing all the best,

    Terry Jett

    I love buying quality PLR. I use SpinRewriter for some things. I'll also use a PLR book and turn that into articles or a short report. I have written scripts form various PLR to make videos. It's a nice way to get a step up. You just have to be careful how you use it.
