Effective Ways to Rewrite an Article

35 replies
Hello --

I am constantly hearing that people are able to rewrite -- or write an article in 15 or 30 minutes.

What is the best method for doing this -- either manually or using software?

Right now it is taking me about three hours. I sure would like to bring this time down ... a lot.

Thanks and I appreciate peeking in and learning from all of your experience.

    When you want to rewrite an article faster, I highly recommend John Schwartz' report which can be found in the WSO section --click here. He cut my rewriting time in half with the tips he gives.

    As to writing faster with original writing, you will find that speed comes with time to a certain degree. It also helps when you write about something you know about. The more research you do within your niche, the more you will know and the faster it will be to write a new article.

      I second what Tina says. Practice and knowing your subject. You gain confidence as you write more. I don't really like doing article rewriting because I don't always like what the article says. It's easier for me to let it flow in my own words - using another article for a few ideas or additional information can be helpful though.

    I agree with Ken, choose quality rather than rewrites. Search engines LOVE new content, and that means articles that have new thoughts, as well as different structure and wording. Readers do not want to read articles that they have read before, even if the words were slightly different. Fresh, original content will win hands down every time in my book. Why bother with a re-write of someone else's ideas? Use your own and come up with a unique article that no-one else could have written.

    Rewriting an article may be enough to get past a program like "copyscape", but it really is cheating! The original author of the article put forth their own ideas and you are being an idea thief, even if the "rewrite" passes a copying test. Wouldn't you hate to see your hard work copied by a thief who spends 15 minutes changing it to make it "new"! Internet marketers should have an ethical standard and conscious too. Eschew "rewriters" and go for the best option - original written works the author is proud of. There are plenty of options out there, so don't be suckered into thinking you need only put any old article on your site. Readers can be savvy and will know if the article is familar with another one. Go for quality, unique, and original articles that attract readers to your site, without worrying about "rewrites"! You will gain far more traffic and respect from your readers.

    Hi David,
    First let me say before others start on how crappy spun articles are. Not all articles are spun that read the same way with out a few words changed. Some of us actually spin properly by paragraphs and make the articles 70%+ unique. Yes I can produce 25 - 50 articles that are 70%+ unique in approx 2 hours. You will see an example below but first let me say this..

    The reason why some of us that work smart and spin our articles is because it is very effective marketing. Some of the reasons to spin articles are:

    * Create Mini Reports
    * Create Press Release
    * Create Blog Post
    * Create Ebooks
    * Create PDF Documents
    * Create Squido and Hubpages
    * Create Videos

    But there is more to it then just this.

    Let's say you write your article and post it on your site and then take that same exact article and post it on 10 article directories. There is nothing at all wrong with this and no it will not hurt your rankings and no duplicate content penalty does not exist.

    But you may very well be missing out on great opportunities to generate additional opt-in's, customers, or followers.

    Now let's say you properly spin your article (not tweak it, but spin it to 70%+ uniqueness) and you post the original on your site and post 10 spun articles on 10 article directories.

    This is what you are going to get for working smart and taking the time to "properly" spin your article.

    1. You can use this spun content to repurpose into other formats as explained in the above post.

    2. Almost all article directories have author rss feeds, if you submit those feeds then all you are doing is putting out 10 rss feeds that have the same exact content. Who wants to subscribe to 10 exact same rss feeds ? If you spin the articles and each directory gets a different spun article then your author rss feeds are now 70%+ unique and thus will get more subscribers.

    3. If at such time the article directories or search engines do start kicking out articles that are posted on other sites then you entire business is screwed. If you spun them though, you have nothing to worry about because you worked smart and took care of the problem before a real problem existed.

    4. By properly spinning your articles you have the ability to target other keywords with the spun versions, everybody knows targeting just 1 keyword is not going to brng the bacon home. You must target several different keywords.

    There are other reasons but this could turn into an entire ebook if I was to explain it all...

    Properly spun by paragraphs (not word replacements by some pre-set database)..

    The buzz is that article writing is the thing to do if you are marketing anything on the Internet. It is the number one choice for marketers to bring people to their web sites as one can add a link in the bio at the end of the article. However, not everyone writes articles for that reason.
    The current thinking going around is that writing articles is one of the best things you can do when you are marketing your products on the web. By far this is one of the top choices for marketers to drive extra traffic to their websites, because as an author you can include links in your resource box towards the end of the article. You should take notice though that not all marketers will do article writing for this reason.
    These are 2 paragraphs in a spun article of mine. Notice the difference in the wording used and the length of paragraphs. This is not some word replacement or some {|} crappy curly braces with brackets, this is new paragraphs written by my own hands and not some pre-set database of words.

    After writting about 5 alternatives for each paragraph then it is ready to be spun and will produce very readable results with 70%+ uniqueness. This is assuming you have an article that is about 600 - 800 words.

    Takes a little bit of work but hey no writer can produce 25 or even 50 articles in 2 hours. So a measly little 2 hours I have totally unique content that can be repurposed and submitted with no problems at all. Best thing is "EVERY SINGLE WORD IS WRITTEN BY ME"..

    Sent you a PM showing a video doing this ...

    If you have a PLR article you want to make "original," I have found it useful (I use 2 monitors) to open the original PLR article in 1 window and a blank doc in another, and put them side by side. Then as I read the PLR article I rewrite it in my own words. The PLR gives me the ideas to write and I end up with a unique article in the end.

    I've not yet seen a spun article that comes close to a hand written one. Nor have I seen a GetAFreelancer able to write English like we are used to seeing.

    In my opinion, spun articles are just junk.

      Ok then show me which one is the spun article and which one is the original ...

      These proven tactics that many online affiliate marketers have used have worked for years and they still continuing to work for affiliate marketing today. Using these affiliate marketing tips, will help you avoid all those common mistakes that many make.

      Helpful Tips
      * Use a unique website to promote each separate product that you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save a small amount of money on website hosting. It is best to have a website focusing on each and every product that you use for affiliate marketing.

      * Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do for those possible buyers. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product. Be sure that these customers are more than willing to allow you to use their names and photos on the website for that specific product.

      * You can also write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website for additional information. Make your design attractive, compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more. Highlight the special points of the product. This will help your readers to learn more about what the product has to offer could increase your conversion rates.

      * Offer a free product to your website visitors that is related to the product on your site. This free product should also include a text file reminding them of the product and your website url. Offer the product in exchange for the visitor to signup for your free newsletter. Create a signup form that will allow them to opt-in with a confirmation email to make sure you get a real email address.

      * There are one of two goals that you want to accomplish here with your website. Either close the sale and get a new customer or capture that possible customers email address. Giving away a free product in exchange for that visitors email address will allow you to email them later to remind them about the product that they was interested in.

      * When contacting your mail list be sure to stay specific with the product they was interested in. Keeping your emails to them focused on the same product they was interested in to begin may help you convert that opt-in user to a customer. Avoid sending constant emails to your opt-in list, send an email at the rate of once per week.

      * Generate targeted visitors to your website to view your product. There is nothing that can lose a possible sale worse than a visitor browsing your website just to find out you do not offer what they are looking for. The best and easiest way to get sites up and running is by using wordpress which is a free cms/blogging software. Wordpress has many useful plugins that can help create sitemaps, do seo and ping your website for you.

      * Hire a writer to write custom and fresh articles that you can use to post to e-zine websites or have posted on other blogs. If your articles are of high quality many publisher may pickup the article and re-publish it with all your information, which means many backlinks to your website.

      * Have at a minimum of 2 articles written per week that is related to your product. You can then submit these articles to article directory websites and then bookmark those articles through a bookmark website. Make sure that when submitting your article that you include a resource box that will explain a little about your site and will contain a link to your website. By submitting to article directories and bookmarking websites you can gain a massive amount of backlinks to your site that can drive traffic to that website.

      Affiliate marketing is one of the most effective and powerful ways of earning some money online. However, like all businesses, there are many pitfalls in the affiliate marketing business. Committing some of the most common mistakes will cost the marketers a large portion taken from the profit they are making everyday. That is why it is better to avoid them than be regretful in the end.

      Mistakes To Avoid
      Being an affiliate of the wrong program - Many new affiliate marketers think if they just join any program then they can start making money faster. These affiliate marketers do not take into consideration if the products offered appeal to them or if the products are in demand. They do this because they follow many others that may be selling a certain product. This is a huge mistake that you should not follow.

      Instead you should choose an affiliate program that has products that appeal to you and that you are passionate about. If the product appeals to you and you are passionate about the product then it will be easier for you to create a site and create a plan of action on marketing that product.

      Taking the time to do some research on these products will also make it easier for you to convert visitors to your website into paying customers. Make sure that there is a demand for the product and there is a customer base looking for the product.

      Choosing too many affiliate programs - There are many affiliate programs to choose from and they are very easy for anyone to join. Some may think that by choosing to join 5 or 10 affiliates programs then they can make more money and make it faster. This is false and you should avoid this mistake at all cost. Concentrating on one affiliate program and one product to start out is what your goal should be.

      By choosing one affiliate program and one product you will have the proper amount of time to put into properly advertising your website. You will make money by going about things in the proper way, so there is no need to rush things. After your first site starts making enough earnings, then you can start with your 2nd product and another affiliate program.

      Not being a customer of the product yourself - You are the affiliate selling the product and in order for you to do that effectively you should be able to answer any and all questions. By trying the product yourself you will have first hand knowledge of the pros and cons of the product and you will be able to relay that onto your website visitors.

      When you become a customer of the product then you will not only have knowledge of the product but you will know how the customer is treated. Many times visitors want to know how they will be treated as a customer if they purchase a product. Since you already know then you can testify that the product does what it claims and the customers are treated as they should be.

      Using these suggestions when you getting into affiliate marketing can help save you a great deal of trouble. Going about things in the proper way can help you generate a huge income and become successful in this business.
      Using these easy to follow affiliate marketing tips can help you build your business and increase your conversions easier and faster. With these proven affiliate marketing tactics, you will be able to able to increase your sales volume and learn to survive in the affiliate marketers world.

      Helpful Tips
      * Create a custom website to market each product separately. Building a website specifically for that product that you are marketing will give you a better advantage when it comes to seo and targeted traffic. Keeping focused on one product or one type of product can greatly increase the response rate from your possible customers.

      * You will want to add reviews of the products that you have on your site so your visitors can have a better understanding of what the product can do for them. Including customer testimonials from current customers that have purchased and used the product will help in conversion rates of visitors into customers. Get testimonials from current customers and include the customers name, photo, and link to the customers website.

      * Create articles that are written specific to that product you are marketing and make sure to point out the great uses the product has. Make your website attractive, compelling and include calls to action. Each article title should get the attention of the reader and convince them to read more about the product. Highlight specific points of the product so your readers will get an overview of what to expect from the product quickly.

      * At the top right corner of your website offer your visitors a free newsletter with an opt-in form. Along with offering a newsletter offer the visitor a free gift to signup for your newsletter. This gift should be specifically related to the product offered on your website. By offering a related gift you have a greater chance of getting your visitors to opt-in for your list.

      * For those visitors that did not become a customer by ordering the product you was offering, you possible do have them as an opt-in user. You can use this to your advantage because you will have another opportunity to covert that visitor into a customer. Sending your opt-in users related emails about the product can have a huge impact on turing them into customers.

      * Contacting your users list should be done with respect, do not send emails everyday to these opt-in users. Sending related information to them and reminding them of the product that they was interested in is what your goal should be. If you have the ability you can even offer a special price or discount on the product for opt-in list users only. Doing so will help your opt-in users to gain trust and loyalty with you.

      * Drive targeted traffic that is specific to your product to your website. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest in the product that you are selling, they will just leave your website and not return. Your website should be built using wordpress, this is a full content management system and blog. By using wordpress your will be able to write and post articles, reviews and additional information for your product. Wordpress allows you to install many different plugins that can help with seo, sitemap creation, and many other plugins.

      * Write or hire someone to compose articles for publication in related e-zines or on other related blogs. Offering these articles to e-zine or blog owners will help increase targeted traffic to your site as the articles should contain your author resource box and link back to your website. Your articles should contain quality information related to the product you are selling and contain between 300-600 words.

      * Write or have written a minimum of 2 articles per week based on or related to your product and add your resource box on these articles. Submit these articles to article directory websites every week. Posting to article directories on a steady basis can help you build backlinks to your website. By posting related content to your wordpress blog can help increase your weight in the search engines. Building backlinks and posting content on your blog will help you generate targeted traffic to your website.

      Affiliate marketing is one of the most effective and powerful ways of earning some money online. However, like all businesses, there are many pitfalls in the affiliate marketing business. Committing some of the most common mistakes will cost the marketers a large portion taken from the profit they are making everyday. That is why it is better to avoid them than be regretful in the end.

      Mistakes To Avoid
      Choosing the wrong affiliate program - Many people want to earn from affiliate marketing as fast as possible. In their rush they tend to choose a bandwagon product. This is the kind of product that they think is "hot". They choose the product that is in demand without actually considering if the product appeals to them. This is not a very wise move obviously.

      Instead of jumping on the bandwagon, try to choose a product in which you are truly interested in. For any endeavor to succeed, you should take some time to plan and figure out your actions.

      Pick a product that appeals to you. Then do some research about that product to see if the product is in demand. Promoting a product you are more passionate about is easier than promoting one for the sake of the making money only.

      Joining too many affiliate programs - Since affiliate programs are very easy to join, you might be tempted to join multiple affiliate programs to try and maximize the earnings you will be making. Joining multiple programs and attempting to promote them all at the same time will prevent you from concentrating on each one of them.

      The technique is to do it slowly but surely. There is really no need to rush into things, especially with affiliate marketing. With the way things are going, the future is looking real bright and it seems affiliate marketing will be staying for a long time too. As soon as you see that you are making a reasonable profit, then you should now join another affiliate program and start with another product and another website.

      Not buying the product or using the service - As an affiliate, you main purpose is to effectively promote a product or service and to find customers. For you to achieve this purpose, you must be able to relay your full knowledge about the product or service to the customer. It is therefore difficult for you to do this when you yourself have not tried these things out.

      Try the product or service personally first before you signup as an affiliate to see if it is really delivering what it promises. If you have done so, then you are one of the credible and living testaments aware of its advantages and disadvantages. Your customers will then feel the truthfulness in you and this will trigger them to become a customer themselves.

      Using these suggestions when you getting into affiliate marketing can help save you a great deal of trouble. Going about things in the proper way can help you generate a huge income and become successful in this business.
      Which one is the original ? Can you tell me ? There is a 47% difference and yes this is a spun article using the "proper" tool and spinning "properly"...

    I think it depends how it is spun. If a machine is doing it by replacing words with synonyms, etc., then it can come out sounding nonsensical. But if you take each sentence of your article and rewrite 4 or 5 new versions with correct grammar, synonyms that make sense within the context of the sentence, etc., then a spinner engine can randomly select sentences and rewrite articles that read well and can pass google's radar and also that of the article directory editors. I have done just this, submitted the original, then submitted a spun article 7 days later getting it published without question on EZs, this using "human rewrites" with a machine spinner engine.

      Hi David

      Here's the technique I use - Its a bit similar to Rich Jerks entry

      Start with your article - make sure its good quality and usually no more than 450 words.

      1. Break the article up sentence by sentence on notepad

      2. Cut and paste the contents of notepad onto an excel spreadsheet.

      3. Create 4 empty lines between each sentence.

      4. Start writing 2 - 3 sentences underneath.

      5. When that's finished - save it! ( sometimes glitches happen - so you need a master copy)

      Here's the fun part create a new notepad file.

      Make sure you are familiar with spinning syntax - a bit of practice is usually sufficient to master it!

      Take each sentence and paragraph and put in spintax format. If you aren' t sure about this just do a paragraph initially - trust me this will save tons of time later.

      If you haven't already sign up for the free version of jetspinner. There's some information on there how to do spintax etc.

      Paste in your paragraph if you want to test it or the whole thing and create an output file of 4 to 'test' that the paragraphs have all come out etc.

      If everything has worked then that can produce up to 30 articles that are at least 50% unique. Test them in dupecop.com if you're not sure

      This whole process usually takes me less than an hour and it's a lot cheaper than paying $5 or more for inferior quality!


      Regards

        Just because someone is re-writing does not mean they are stealing other people's work. Some people are re-writing PLR which is perfectly legal. Others want different versions of their own original article to put in different directories or to use for different purposes. Don't jump to the conclusion that re-writing is cheating or stealing.

      We use spun articles a lot - and get them done outsourced overseas. We (or our clients) write the original article and our team will spin it 3-5 times and distribute it for a fair fee.

      Great way to build content for directories, content pages like hub pages, wetpaint and squidoo and press releases.

      Don't forget to spin the signature files too!

    You can use article rewriting software, it will generate rewrites that will pass the filters but quite often the sentence structure, grammar, and synonyms used are completely nonsensical

    Hi David,
    Perhaps it might help to find out where you're spending most of your time? For me, it's research. Sometimes I'll set a timer to help me focus when I'm doing research, and I remind myself I only need to check 3 or 4 sources. Otherwise I keep going and going.

    Also, look at the structure of your articles. There are formulas you can follow such as:
    Introduction - Explain the problem and tell them what you will be telling them.
    Paragraph 1 - 1st point.
    Paragraph 2 - 2nd point.
    Paragraph 3 - 3rd point.
    Conclusion - Leads to resource box.

    I would also suggest, since the research is done, you write as many articles as you can revolving around what you now know. Make the first one the above format, then the next about common mistakes. You can also do a Top 7 or 10 tips, a personal story angle, an interview angle, and a Q and A or FAQ article.

    Good Morning, All!

    Thank you VERY much for your replies. I am grateful for taking the time to help me and I have gleaned a lot of useful stuff. Will be pouring over it more this next week.

    My initial thoughts is yes, high quality content is preferred. And when I do rewrite an article, I want at least a 90% uniqueness. Did find someone back east on GAF to rewrite several of my articles but then still had to go back and edit about a third to turn it back to my voice.

    I have purchased PLR (including Peggy's) but use it for the ideas and flow but always changing to fit me.

    I use DupeFreePro to ensure the uniqueness.

    Never did I consider the ethical use of of using PLR/Rewriters until now. Will have to mull that over.

    I do understand there is a difference between legally ethical behavior and morally so. Is there a difference of using PLR/rewriters and rewriting in my own voice from doing research and then writing from what is "now" in my head?

    Just trying to sort through my thoughts here, not start anything. There is obviously passion about it on both sides just in this tiny thread. I trust it has helped the 200 or so who have been peeking in also.

    I have been sitting in front of my screen here a few minutes trying to figure out the take away. It is this (until it changes):

    As Ken Evoy says, keep it real. Whatever goes on my site or on other sites with my name make sure it is high quality and continues to be "my voice".

    And I will consider the report mentioned and other places to help me with techniques to "write smarter".

    Again, thank you all for helping me learn so I can earn and then serve others.

    Just read it, stop for a moment.

    Think.

    Then re-write it!

    For instance read this paragraph:

    "Traffic is required in order to make any sales. It is no secret that without any traffic your trying to go upstream without a paddle. Online there are various over hyped techniques that people will tell you, you need for traffic. Here I have listed all of the ones that I know work for me, but let me tell you, these aren't magic, work is required. The payoff is what's worth it"

    Rewrite it as :

    "In order to successfully run an online business, you need traffic. Without traffic you might as well not have a website up and running! The problem is sorting through the various methods out there and finding the real ones that work. This is why I am here; I have here the free traffic techniques that I know work, they work for me and they can work for you too. All you need to do is be ready for a little work, and a lot of profit."

    Those two paragraphs literally took me like 4 minutes.

    Just re-write ideas and let it all flow. I have not edited the paragraphs so they may have some errors, but generally you just have to re-read what you wrote out loud.

    Hope this helps!

    I don't have any tips for you on how to rewrite an article faster or write up a quality article fast. But, if you want to outsource the rewrite, I use humanrewriter.com.

    Another option is to just do a simple restructure. Turn a statement into a question or into a how to or into a edgy opinion piece by injecting some chutzpah...There are quite a few ways to restructure content using logic flow or personality...I don't want to ruffle any feathers so I'll just leave it at that...

        Many people are afraid to get started writing an article, but it can be real fun. Just let it flow, and write as you speak to a friend.

        Don't use difficult words.

        Keep your sentences short, and easy to read.

        If you can think of 3 headlines that cater to your subject, you can build on from there.

        Just don't be afraid to get started writing. Anyone can do it. If you have a passion for your subject, it will come automatically.

        And don't forget to use a unique style, or add some humour to your article. Make reading your article a fun experience for your readers, and you will get that desirable click at the end of your copy ;-)

    I find the best way to rewrite is to rewrite each paragraph, rather than each sentence or phrase. You'll find your finished product is much more readable, and often more unique as well.

      Exactly by doing it by paragraphs you have a clean article that does not look or sound like it was spun. Usinf those pre-set database of words and just replacing words, you can tell it was spun..

    I am up to about 2 articles per hour. I can't imagine the crap out there if people are writing an article every 10 minutes.

      I always suggest people to rewrite article manually as this will help you to create unique content. It is definitely possible to rewrite an article within 30 minutes but this happens after a lot of practice and hence if you keep on writing articles regularly, one day you will be able to rewrite an article within 30 minutes

        Brandon and Jim --

        This is exactly what I am looking for. Would you be willing to give me your process for doing this that I could adapt? Maybe a step by step or explanation of the process you use?

        This would be an incredible leap forward for me .

          Mass article control was a pretty cool product.

          I actually used to go through 1 word at a time and change them just so they were legit! Actually produced some very high quality articles doing that method

          Hey David,

          Most of the articles I write are about 500 words. I find it easier and faster to write an article like a list. For example: 5 easy ways to save money at the gas pumps.

          Brief intro, 1 small bullet point for each number then a conclusion.

          I find that people like to read article this way, it's faster and easier for the reader.

            Power Article Rewriter is really good windows desktop software but I don't use windows really and don't know if it's being offered anymore.

            I'm working on a web based version. Basically you can have replacements for entire paragraphs, sentences within those, phrases within the sentences, etc. You just have to use good grammar in the first place really, then you can easily generate 20 or 30 human readable copies.

            I'd post the beta of my web one but it's really not worth it yet.

    If you directly believe in what you are writing, and it holds any true relevance to you, then speed writing will come naturally. You will know what to say almost instantaneously.

    As they often say "Write whats in your heart"

    Truly, if your articles are true to you, then they will come naturally. Just relax and dont stress it, write what you want to say and YOUR article will come through.
