Article Marketing, article variations?

9 replies
How important is it to vary my articles when submiting to different article sites, and If I am using a different keyword title for each do I need to vary them at all?

    Kevin, From everything I can see from my tests, changing your articles is important. I don't know what the % change should be but I shoot for 60%

    Woah!

    You are NOT changing your articles - you are re-writing them - a very different matter all together.

    Using a thesaurus and rearranging the word/phrase/sentence order does not constitute "change" it only represents "fiddling under the bonnet" and causes enormous problems for people who want to learn about a subject but have to wade through piles of reconstituted crap to discover a 'new' or 'different' perspective.

    You might not like what I say - but I believe it.
    Build it, make money, then build some more
    Some old school smarts would help - and here's to Rob Toth for his help. Bloody good stuff, even the freebies!

      I guess it just depends on what the purpose of the content is...

      Is it just for backlinks? Don't change a thing and blast away

      Are you trying to rank them all? If this is the case, you will want to alter the content until it is at least 30% uniqe and change the title of the article. It would also be a good idea to post your content on directories that stand a good chance of ranking like:

      www.goarticles.com
      www.ezinearticles.com
      www.buzzle.com
      www.website-articles.net

        Jeremy, Is 30% a number you have found to work well? I have heard numbers all the way up to 80%. If I can get the same results with 30% I could reduce my outsource cost a great deal.

          30% usually works ok for me. If someone is telling you that you need to change them by 80% it is because they are trying to sell you a service or software to do it

      That's basically what it comes down to. If you want to get the most out of your articles you should rewrite them. Line by line go through and rephrase, there are a lot of different ways to say the same thing.

    There's a software I know that does just that. However you still have to do the rewrite manually. The software merely picks a sentence at random then lets you rewrite it.

    It has helped me in a way. The software computes how much of the article has been rewritten. So I rewrite until I reach my goal, say 40-50%, then click publish.

      I just use Unique Article Wizard. Rewrite it. And let the software do its job. It creates articles unique enough for submissions. Even if the articles not unique enough, I don't care. I use it for the links they can bring me. I'm not trying to make it rank well in the search engine anyway.

    Do a good job on article research and you should be able to create several unique variations of the same article. And I'm not talking about going over to EZA to research a topic or reading something another marketer wrote either. Depending on the niche, you should spend time reading posts/threads in niche forums that answers those important questions that people are looking for answers to. Read offline content at the newstand or in the library. Even CNN or MSNBC can be useful :-).
