    Last week i find out about WordPress Uniquefier and i was thinking that this is great way to avoid duplicate content penatlies, but then i found out that this plugin is not that good because you can't rang high in search engines. I was thinking if you are able to have content that you are copied from somewhere else (you can get tons of content from anywhere) and that content pass copyscape (people's says that pass in version 3.0) you don't have to think for rankings because you are not going to rank that site, instead you are going to sell that site on sitepoint or somewhere else. Let say that you have 1000 page website and all content on your site is copy-paste from some other sites but when you offer your site on sitepoint you are going to mention that all content on your site is unique and when potencial customer check trought copy scape he will see that content is unique. This way you can sell thousands websites with "unique" content. Is this possible? Sorry for my bad english. :)

    Why would anyone want to buy a website without any revenue nor traffic that has just been filled in with some content that probably won't even sound human?

    Do you know how WordPress Uniquefier work? This is not rewrite plugin. Content is 100% the same, just search engines don't see that but for visitors is clear and good. And you can say that your site is new and you don't have time to promote them. But you are going to have verry quality content and they can't see that this is duplicate form somwhere else.

    I've read in the forums that after using this plugin, his traffic slowly decreased and after disabling the plugin, traffic went up again. It's also reported that it is hard to get ranked in the search engines with this plugin. I can't personally say i've used it but after reading through some of the posts, i'm afraid of using it and making my traffic die out...

    My 2cents

    I don't get how the plugin would make your tarffic start to decrease. It could be that SEs are onto the way it rewrites and can't actually read the content for some reason.

    Im gonna look into this as it seems like a strange problem.

    Also yeah of course it COULD work but to be honest I wouldn't wanna buy a site with no earnings or any real chance of it earning anything in the near future.

    I looked into the plugin and it is one of those rewriters that isn't exactly a rewriter. What it does is obfuscate the text content and replaces specific characters (letters) with their HTML equivalent. This is a massive footprint and is a direct hindrance against rankings as it will turn paragraphs of good content into HTML code that the SEs don't index.

    The reason people are struggling to get traffic with this is because it effectively removes your content in the eyes of SEs which is exactly the opposite of what you are trying to achieve with this plugin / app.

    Im not sure how many IMs would want to buy a site with odd content like this but you could probably make a couple of sales before the townsfolk start to gather with their pitchforks.
