    Hello,

    I hear that AC uses copyscape to check if the articles have been re written. Is this true?

    Thanksssss,

    Jared

    Yes, if you're trying to sell them anything they do copyscape most buyers now do it. Also Google has a new quirk where it will pick up spun articles that were made using spin software which uses anonyms and synonyms for word replacement.

    Obviously AC is going to use copyscape or some other plagarism checking software before actually paying you $$

    I doubt that they would pay you without actually checking for plagarism!

    i don't think there will be a way for google to find a well spun article because there are so many ways to rewrite it.

    Google can't pick up articles spun by humans, but most of the computerized stuff is picked up.

    I'd think it depends how well its been spun
    If you just spin one word in every paragraph you'll get caught out.
    If you have 10 different options for every spun part, and you spin sentences within sentences, and spin them within paragraphs i'd doubt you could ever know

    Well whatever they're doing, they are overzealous at banning things now. At least some of their editors are. They took down an article I had published and it wasn't even copied. It was totally paraphrased by hand, no duplicate content, and they said portions of it were from elsewhere. I am not stupid and don't copy things verbatim. They are being really nitpicky, so be careful.

    They should, the guide makes no sense.

    Otherwise people would just copy stuff off ezine and paste on AC

    Thats just what i think.
