    Hey guys !

    I had an idea lately but I don't know if I am able to do this or it's illegal in some way and can get in bad trouble.

    So there is a niche that I found that has multiple article over multiple website but none of them are on a website that just talk about this subject.

    Am I able to copy those guide to a website that I would create only on this topic, and add the credit to the author and link it back there or I can get in bad trouble ?

    thanks for any help !

    If you give proper credits to the author who created the original article., then i don't think you will in any trouble. Go ahead with it..

    As jollyman said - give proper credits and you should be fine - i do it quite often myself and never had an issue.

    Giving credit and linking back to the article should be fine but don't expect to rank in google with that

    Copying website content to use on your own website is a bad idea. ... regularly updated content on your business's website is important.

    I do not think that copied content is good, but if you are giving credit then you may be able to do it.

    I re-write them in my own words...never do I just copy them. I do find 5-10 of my favorite niche sites, take the best of each one, and rewrite the content as my own.

    This. Rewriting it would probably save you from unforeseen troubles.

    wouldn't it be easier to get keyword research software like freshkey and have original articles. if you are spending the time rewriting other peoples content why not just write original articles from the start?

    Knowing which keywords to write about, is the prerequisite to even building a website. Sure...people can write from scratch if they have the ability to spit out that many original thoughts...I don't. I need to see other content to get inspired. I like to see what other businesses have done with their own research and budgets to come up with what they do. In most cases, I can twist it and write it better than they can. When I am on my A game...I write like a champ, but I always need research to give me content ideas...regardless of keywords.
