Please help me understand why people buy Private Label Rights articles?

by Chris_L 7 replies
I’m writing in the context of using PLR articles for website contents. Most PLR ebooks I have read recommend rewriting PLR articles in order to avoid Google from sandboxing the website as having the same contents as other websites.

Since I have to rewrite the articles anyway, why don’t I just go to EzineArticles and grab some of those high quality articles and rewrite them instead? What’s the point of buying PLR articles then?

Am I missing something?:confused:

    PLR articles have many uses other that website content. Create an ebook with a dozen or more related articles. Use a set of 30 or more for an autoresponder series that contain affiliate links. Use them for off-line purposes. Rebrand them and resell the PLR rights. All of these options have no search engine consequenses.

    Hi Chris,

    I guess the point is that most people are looking for instant solutions that don't require a lot of work so they simply don't re-write the content.

    There are loads of guides out there on how to use PLR content to make unique content but I would bet that most people just simply publish the items 'as-is'.

    BTW - I'm just as guilty of this lazy approach to PLR as anyone elese!

    Best regards

    I've never heard of Google "sandboxing" a site just for using plr articles.

    One benefit of a plr article is that the subject has already been researched, usually from several sources, and therefore requires less alteration than just taking a single article from a directory.

    With good quality plr (and that is the key), you'll avoid any risk of plagiarism accusations and if the plr is a limited release, there'll be few, if any, similar articles elsewhere.

    I've just put Richard Branson's number on speed-dial. I call it my "Get-Rich-Quick" scheme.

      PLR articles can be a valuable time-saving content option. The research is done, the writing is done; all that is left for you to do is to re-write them with at least a 30% revision. That is the purpose of PLR.

      Copying articles from Ezine Articles and doing the same with them is kind of like stealing someone's work from them. The difference - PLR articles are created to be re-written; Ezine Articles submission are not meant to be re-written.

        PLR articles save time, but NOT for the reason that people think.

        See, the biggest mistake that people make when getting PLR material is
        that they use it AS IS.

        What PLR saves you is not the time in actually turning it into useful content
        (such as rewriting it) but the time doing the research.

        Think about it. A lot of these topics would take you weeks to research. With
        PLR, at least if it's good PLR, the research has been done for you. All you
        need to do is the rewriting to make it unique for you.

        Pick up the Rhodes Brothers products on this subject. In my opinion, they're
        the experts on PLR.

    Thank you all for clarifying the use of PLR articles. I understand now that there is value in purchasing PLR articles.

    I will start looking into purchasing high quality PLR articles. I will also check out the Rhodes Brothers products as suggested by Steven.
