Hello Warriors,

Just a week ago, I decided to start outsourcing. I have been doing all the work myself until now, and believe me, it's a lot of work.

I have never really done outsourcing before, so I don't know how to go about it rightly.

So, if someone writes an article for me, how do I know it's unique. I have a strong feeling that they can simply rewrite the article.

Please let me know how to detect if an article is unique.

All opinion are welcome

    If you want to just run a quick check to see if the content you've been given is aready out there on the net then you can try running it through copyscape:

    Copyscape Plagiarism Checker - Duplicate Content Detection Software

    This may not pick up everything, but it's a good place to start.

    It's probably also a good idea to check the credentials of the person of who you are outsourcing to. Make sure they have some good feedback and seem competent.

        Another option is to run some phrases through Google search to see if any matches come up. The trick, whether you are using Copyscape or Google search, is to check short portions of text, not paragraphs or entire articles. In particular, check unusual sentences and phrases to see if they show up in other places.

    Copyscape, or find phrases with punctuation marks to see if there are any results found

    yes copyscape, and outsource only to those that that are fully reliable.

    I use many warriors in here, for outsourcing everything article and lots of other stuff.

    I gotta say, that there are some very bad workers and quality in here. But on the other hand, man the gems are real gems. The way you find them is just let them know you are testing their service and get the minimal amount done. If you are happy and they are reliable, then you just upscale that.

    It is how I have found some insane article writers on here in the forum. You have to sort the wheat from the chaff. There are some very bad quality of article writers in here. But the good article writers in here are killer!!!! Trust me, when you find one, you will know.

    Hope this helps. The warrior forum is like owning a pot of gold in your backyard. You just have to be smart enough to know how to use it.

    As previous posters said:
    1) Check the article using Copyscape
    2) Select random phrases from the article and search for these on Google.

    I also have the habit of slightly editing a few sentences here and there when I'm posting the outsourced article on my blogs/sites/etc (takes at maximum 2-3 minutes) - this will also increase the uniqueness of your article.
