    I recently found a gig on fiver that will produce 5 copyscape passed articles for $5. The gig said that they encoded the text somehow and that made them appear unique in Google etc... So a bought some and when I received them checked them for uniqueness and what you know they came back 100% unique. When I added an article to my wordpress site you could see that fonts or something similar had been changes for random letters all over the article.

    Because of the process that has been used on the articles are they going to be harmful to my sites? And are Google going to view them as crap content?

    Here's some optimism for you, OP: Now you are not as obligated to waste that $5 on McDonald's. You're welcome.

    The technique used by the seller is a spam technique used to produce unique articles that aren't actually unique. You wasted your money and you've been scammed if the technique wasn't mentioned in the gig description.

    You get what you pay for.

    Yea I remember that shitty site lol

    http://phylix.com/products/spin/index.php

    It outputs the same article but with some letters changed to some symbols and stuff. Obviously the output article will never rank in Google as its full of symbols and not real letters. :p

    Thouh! It would be interesting to see if many articles coded by that tool would affect the weight of a site regarding number of pages and interlink structure.

    The gig has nearly 1900 sales and 4.7 feedback, someone's made themselves a pretty penny selling rubbish
