    Hi everyone! I was wondering one thing. If I take an article from the book in my niche and copy paste it to my wordpress blog with only minor changes due to KW optimization, is that counted as a plagarism and will it affect my SEO? Has anyone tried doing it? Thank you,

    Jure.

    Google is scanning hundreds of books daily. They will probably have the book you used already indexed. Just think about it... You can easily find book contents per Google, that means they are indexed and count as plagiarism/duplicated content.

    If it's not found by Google, then your main risk is the copyright holder asking for a site takedown. Other than that, pretty old method, lots of people did this and some still do.

    I have read books, casually, not word for word, outloud into a speech to text program, and used those as articles.
    I have used multiple excerpts from books, or just a single book, to compile a curated content post(even linking back to the source)
    I have used old books, like 1800's(benefit of a long term evergreen niche), in PDF format as a free giveaway and written a small original bit about them.

    Get original to provide some benefit to your visitors

    Yes. It will be duplicate content, unless you re-write it 100% to be unique. Honestly, it is not worth it. Unless it is a churn & burn site.

    Dragon naturally speaking is one a lot of people recommend.
    I personally use Onenote as I am a Microsoft junkie.

    This will be duplicate content and should not be done.

    There is actually a feature on Microsoft Word for Mac. I only discovered it after someone posted about it on this forum. I am a Mac user for about 7 years :rolleyes:

    Open up a Word document and then go 'edit' then 'start dictation' at the bottom.

    I was looking at Dragon and other software, using an emulator and everything, and it was there on my Mac all along.

    I don't know about PC though.

    Because then he'll get a duplicate content penalty? Lol.

    If it is filler and you don't care if it ranks, just rip it and post it.

    Well I need it to be ranked but I am not really good at writing + my budget is not high enough to buy 30 articles so I have to do it on my own. Any more suggestions that could help me out? Thanks

    I sadly have to agree to this.

    I once had some PDF I created. as soon as G crawls them, they are in their index. everything after that is DC

    For a blog content is much important so try to make it more quality and unique.
    Make your own contents and try it in some plagiarism checker to check the uniqueness.
    Never try duplicate content to your site
