Sometimes I really do some unconventional stuff and even outrageous stuff. This week I got a chance to 'break the rules' by submitting four private label articles to the most distinguished article directory of the internet. Some gurus would advise you that as a rule, you need to rewrite PLR articles completely in order to be able to submit them to article directories; or at least, you need to rewrite 90% of the content. Nonsense! I am here to prove them wrong.
This week, I took out four old plr articles on traffic generation. The articles themselves were not too bad. Anyway, I didn't do a complete rewrite of the plr articles. Each article had about 11 paragraphs of text and some of them were filler content. For each article, what I did was rewrite the first four paragraphs and the last two paragraphs. In fact, while rewriting, I removed all the fluff and filler (because I hate them), got the meat and rewrote it. I left the five paragraphs in the middle intact. And of course, I gave original titles to my articles :)
Now, I submitted those articles to articlecity.com, goarticles.com, ideamarketers.com, etc (I submitted them under a pen name). Now, before submitting the articles to ezinearticles.com (which is known to have a bigger and more sensitive nose than the rest of the article directories), I took ample precautions. I didn't use my primary Ezinearticles.com account for this purpose. Instead, I opened another basic account, and then I submitted my articles under a pen name and in the appropriate category.
Now, you know that basic members have to wait for days to get an article approved, so I had to wait for 4 days to get them approved, and they GOT approved!
You believe it! I maybe edited 50-60% of the plr content and still managed to bypass their 'sensitive nose'.
So, that was all about this week. Right now I don't plan to do this kind of stuff regularly but anyway, if you ever want to go my way, make sure you have taken the same precautions as mine. You never know … :)
And make sure that your plr article is not some junk article, or it won't get approved anyway :)
Lastly, try to write original articles as far as possible. If you want to go my route, no harm. Just make sure you get your articles from quality plr sites. Unless you have gotten the plr articles from quality sites such as All Private Label Content, you are sure to get junk content most of the time. I am a member of All Private Label Content plus a few other sites. Sometimes I purchase plr stuff from WSOs as well. Note that the plr I submitted to the article directories were NOT junk content, though they had some filler stuff. If they were junk I probably had to rewrite them entirely :)
Oh, and while talking of article writing, a few months ago I had released my flagship report on bum marketing-the Nuttie Bums. This report contains three ways you can make the bum marketing thing work smarter for you! It doesn't contain the ordinary bum marketing stuff; in fact, some of you may find certain things in the report to be outrageous :) But again, feel free to check it.
