Advanced PLR Rewriting Tips
PLR articles have a reputation of being a little boring so you definitely want to spice them up a little. Once you’re finished you might want to add some extra words. If this is the case, just write another paragraph. This will make the article VERY unique and flesh it out a bit more as well. You can also add a touch of humor or personality to it.
Another good way to spruce them up is to add a few researched facts of your own or even a story from your life about the topic. Find a few extra facts on Google and throw them in.
The keywords chosen for PLR articles will seldom match your needs. You need to add in whatever keywords you’re targeting to make it work. Often times changing the headline or subheads to add in your exact keywords is all you’ll need to get your article to rank well in the search engines.
If you are using these articles for promoting affiliate products, you will definitely want to add your own affiliate links into the article. You may need to change out the products that are being recommended in the PLR article, or insert your own new links.
A good way to make sure that you have changed a significant amount of the PLR article is to use a great piece of software called Dupe Free Pro:
This software not only allows you to check for duplicate copies of your work that already exists on the web, but it also allows you to quickly compare two drafts of the same article (your PLR piece and your new rewrite). Dupe Free Pro will then tell you if your article is sufficiently different from the original or not. It will give you a percentage difference and a smiley face icon will appear if it’s okay.
An even better alternative and if you have the budget is Copyscape:
This site will give you a detailed breakdown of how original your article is in comparison to all the other similar articles already existing on the web. This service is called Copyscape Premium and is a great, accurate way to check your work. However it does have a fee of 5c per check. Definitely worth the cost if you’re doing a lot of PLR rewriting
How to Rewrite PLR: The Introduction Paragraph
The introduction paragraph is the second most important step in the process. With this paragraph we want to give the reader an idea of what the article is about and we needto keep it interesting. We’re also going to be using the first technique in our arsenal here. We are going examine each sentence one-by-one and rewrite it.
For example, let’s say this is the first paragraph:
The Powermate 9000 is a revolutionary new exercise machine designed to target every muscle group in your body, all at the same time. Never before has there been such a big breakthrough in exercise technology. This is the most time-efficient and productive way to exercise in existence. This technology is now finally available to the public in the form of the amazing Powermate 9000 exercise machine.
Here’s a step by step example of how you might rewrite each sentence.
1) The Powermate 9000 is a revolutionary new exercise machine designed to target every muscle group in your body, all at the same time.
2) The Powermate 9000 is a groundbreaking fitness machine that exercises all the muscles in your body at once.
1) Never before has there been such a big breakthrough in exercise technology.
2) This is the biggest development in health and fitness of the last 50 years.
1) This is the most time-efficient and productive way to exercise in existence.
2) This is the fastest way to get and stay fit.
1) This technology is now finally available to the public in the form of the amazing Powermate 9000 exercise machine.
2) This high-tech solution is now accessible to the masses as the Powermate 9000.
There are the two main techniques you can use to rewrite PLR sentences:
A great tip is to use the thesaurus feature on your word processing software to replace many of the words without losing the meaning. This is an easy way to change a large number of the words without changing the meaning behind the sentences.
2: Complete rewrite:
Sometimes it’s simply quicker to just write up a totally new version. Quickly rephrase the sentence in your mind and write it out.
After going through the rewriting process, here’s what our example paragraph looks like:
The Powermate 9000 is a groundbreaking fitness machine that exercises all the muscles in your body at once. This is the biggest development in health and fitness of the last 50 years. This is the fastest way to get and stay fit. This high-tech solution is now accessible to the masses as the Powermate 9000.
Another technique is to add a few random sentences in-between to achieve 2 things:
1) Add words to lengthen the article.
2) Add uniqueness for Google and other search engines.
So here’s what I did:
The Powermate 9000 is a groundbreaking fitness machine that exercises all the muscles in your body at once. Most exercise machines target only 1 or 2 muscle groups but many trainers consider this almost outdated and medieval. This is the biggest development in health and fitness of the last 50 years. This is the fastest way to get and stay fit. This high-tech solution is now accessible to the masses as the Powermate 9000.
Now it has a little bit of humor, depth and personality too.
So now you know most of what you need to rewrite PLR articles successfully. Just repeat this process for each paragraph until you’re done.
How to Rewrite PLR: The Article or Post Title
The first thing you should start with is the title. This is by far the most vital step in the process. Google places a lot of significance on the title so make sure you do the following:
Make it compelling. Make it as unique as possible. Try to use “power words” or emotionally charged phrases in the title. A question often times works really well to catch attention.
For example, an attention catching title might be: “Is The Powermate 9000 Really Worth the Money?”
The question is provocative and gets people thinking about whether or not they should actually spend the cash. This is perfect for people who are almost ready to buy and just want to do some last minute research. So if you can stir up some of their fears of buyer’s remorse, you’re more likely to get a reader to click on your article and read it.
Now compare that title to this one: “Powermate 9000 Review”
While review is a great word to use, this one is clearly a lot less exciting and more matter-of-fact. Again, the more emotionally charged you can make your titles, the better.
Some power words to include in your title might be:
· How to
These are words loaded with emotion and are proven to improve click through rates
What To Look For in PLR Packages
When shopping for PLR articles to rewrite, make sure they are at least 400 words, have up-to-date information, have a good structure to them (each paragraph makes a unique point) and has good grammar and spelling.
This ensures you won’t be spending hours recreating a rushed hack-job of an article.
Where Can You Use PLR?
PLR can be used in a lot of different ways. For example:
- Content for your website
- Posts for your blog
- Search engine ‘food’
- Articles for directories
- Email newsletters
- Content for a product
I’m going to show you how quick and easy it can be to edit and rewrite PLR articles for your own website or blog. The best way to use PLR is to edit each article and change it from the original version. This ensures that your content is unique and that you add your own unique spin and perspective to it.
You don’t want it to exist anywhere else on the web as a duplicate.
This may initially sound like a lot of work, but it’s actually much faster than doing the whole thing from scratch. Once you get the hang of rewriting content, you’ll be able to speed through it in no time.
The Google Factor
Google and the other search engines use very smart computer algorithms to rank websites on the internet. The best content makes it to page one and the junk is found closer to page 100. Having fresh new content is a great way to improve your rankings, but, you have to be sure that the content is unique. And this is where rewriting PLR comes in.
You want to take a PLR article (non-unique) and make it fresh (unique). Then you can avoid Google’s dreaded ‘duplicate content penalty’ without the time-consuming process of writing full articles.
With PLR, all the research and thought about the topic has already been done for you.
All you need to do is alter it. You can easily rewrite 3 to 4 articles in the same time it would take to write just one from scratch. So it’s a quick way to create new content and all in all a huge time saver.
If you’re not a great writer, PLR can also be an excellent way to improve your writing skills fast. After rewriting a few well-crafted PLR articles, you will soon get the hang of it.
What is PLR?
PLR stands for Private Label Rights and are articles that you buy for use in your own work. However, you need to be careful about how you use them because they all have a different TOS (terms of service). Some allow you to just publish them, others allow you to sell resale rights to the PLR as well and others still have different limitations.
Just be sure you understand what you can and cannot do with the particular ones you have bought.
