    Hi,

    Ive just started trying to make money with rewritten articles on AC. I checked a rewritten article on copyscape premium test and no results were returned- I assumed that meant that it would not be refused by AC for plagiarism, but AC found a similar article online. I double checked to see if I'd not done the test properly but there is still no similar articles shown when put into copyscape.

    Does this happen a lot? how can I make sure that the article will not be turned down for plagiarism?

    Thanks

    @ jesus3 - it's not difficult, it just takes knowing what kind of content they want. AC's well known for being one of the easiest/quickest paying things to start with in IM.

    @ boondoggie - Even if an article passes Copyscape it can still be detected by AC's editors if it has too many names, locations, etc cited within the content. Not sure if this is the case in your instance, but I posted up about it in the "made $30" thread yesterday or the day before if you want to read it.

    Thanks for getting back to me.
    There are no names or locations cited. I checked the article they found which is similar and it does read like mine, maybe its a rewrite of the same article, but I compared it to mine in dupefreepro and it comes up as 0% duplicate content. Very strange.

    Hey all,

    I checked over the OP's articles and they have me scratching my head a bit. The rewrite was a good one and it should have been accepted.

    If any of you who are doing rewrites have had this happen to you over the last week can you post up about it or shoot me a PM?

    Also, if you're doing rewrites and things are getting accepted as usual, can you also let us know?

    We've had a few members have this happen to them in the last few days so we should probably confirm there's nothing new in place to detect rewrites. One of the members it was cut and dry as to why it happened, but like I said, this one should have passed.

    Thanks

    have you read red tide's guide?
    try search in AC. probably the editor have read it plenty of times b4.
    move on, rewrite other article. if AC approve, you should know what kind of article should be rewritten.

    I don't think its anything to do with the editor having read it alreday. It was rewritten well and passes Copyscape. Yes, Ive read Redtides briliant guide and followed all the steps so don't know what went wrong with this article.

    Yeah, the article definitely still has me baffled. Again, if anyone has the same thing happen, let me know. I hate not being able to solve a mystery ;)

    Thanks for the kind words about the book boondoggle, I appreciate it.

    Actually that happened with 3 articles i made it, well written right topics, it passed copy sc@pe but it was rejected for upfront payment. And i do have Redtide's brilliant guide as well, so what i truly think it is happening is that maybe AC is shifting some of its acceptable topics?

    Thanks again for the kind words Brocation

    In this case it didn't have to do with the topics or whether the topic/keywords are unique to AC's published library though. The pesky editors knew it was a rewrite and nailed the OP for plagiarism for that one article even though it passed CS.

    With the 3 articles you mentioned, did they reject them with the reason that it was for plagiarism?

    They actually did accepted for residual, giving me the option to publish but no upfront, and they didn't gave a reason for it

    @Brocation: AC can be basta*ds some (read most) of the time. It probably varies with the reviewer.
    However it has been working fine for me over the last few weeks -even did a few articles in Wordflood which had very poor synonyms and had quite a high duplicate phrase result in DupeFree Pro, it's best probably to do a article on which there's not much competition.
    By the way does the chances of acception get higher with your Clout Level?

    Mine was only one article and they not only rejected but closed my account saying it would be monitored for any links to other accounts.
    The title of the are article could give it away as a rewrite as there is another one online with the same title which is where I scraped the article from (ezinearticles)- and it is very easy to find with a simple G-search BUT that is not the article they are referring to when they say it is a rewrite- they found the very same article on another very obscure site.
    I guess another thing based on this, is to make sure the title is not identical to the article you are rewriting so a google search of the exact title would not lead a reviewer straight to the original.

    Machines are not powerfulthan man!!! however there must be some similarity otherwise being created by any software like MAR OR PAR
    I hope if theme of a topic is reflected in your language it is difficult to be caught thanx
