    It seems that this forum is so loaded with shortcuts and tools to recycle articles that the proper method to re-writing can no longer be found. I am going to emphasize that this is by far not the fastest method, but it can be used to produce high-quality re-writes with 99% unique content. In my opinion, this should be the first stop for any newbies in the BHW article section.

    Why Article Spinners Don't Work:

    Most article spinners "re-word" the content, looking up words in a thesaurus and assigning a new word to replace the old one. This is essentially ineffective because proper English does not dictate words or even sentences, but phrases. An article spinner would be a lot more effective if someone wrote a "phrase thesaurus", however as I know it, no such thesaurus exists because it would be exponentially longer than a standard thesaurus.

    The Solution:

    Since we can't automate the re-phrasing of articles yet, we must do it manually. Don't worry, the task is more tedious than challenging. Here is a simple format that explains how effective this is.

    Original Content:

    If you're as geeky as we are, you're probably doing everything you can to figure out how to...
    -Taken from the "Official Google Blog"

    Now let's change the content like your standard article spinner would, by re-wording it.

    If you're as [geeky|abhorred|avoided|creepy|unpopular] as [we|us|individually] are, you're [probably|doubtless|expediently|feasibly|imaginably] doing [everything|all|whole] you [can|be capable of|be equal to] to [figure|calculate|reckon|totalize] out how to...

    The first word in each set of brackets is the original word to the article, and the rest are taken out of a thesaurus. Try reading the paragraph using the second or third word in each bracket, and you'll realize that you just wind up with garbage. This is also conservatively written since I used the proper thesaurus results that matched the definition of the word which is something an automatic spinner does not do.

    Now let's change the phrases instead of just the words.

    [If you're as|Since you can be as|If you can be as] [geeky as we are,|obsessed as we can be,|obsessed as us,] [you're probably doing|you are likely attempting|we expect you to be trying] [everything you can do|all your able to do|all that is possible] [to figure out|in order to understand|to try and learn] how to...

    As you can see, two things have happened. Not only has each variation of the content become much more readable, but the content is now a lot more unique since more of the words have been changed. I don't know about you, but this seems to be the proper way to re-write content to me.


    We are not done with the article though. In order for readers to find the article through a search engine, it must be keyword-oriented like any other web page.

    You can quickly generate a list of keywords for your article using the Google Keyword Tool. The address can be found in the box below:

    There are two methods this system uses in order to generate a list of keywords. The first is to simply add a few keywords or phrases, which we will not be using in this tutorial because if you are trying to re-write an excessive amount of articles in a short time, it would be inefficient to generate a list of keywords by hand.

    Instead, we will be using the second method, which is to have Google generate a list of keywords automatically from a given URL. All you have to do is type in the original address of the article and Google does the rest of the work for you.

    Tip: If you are copying content from a book, magazine, video, or another source which the original context can not be found in a URL, then upload the article you've already written to a free web server temporarily. However, be sure to delete it afterword to prevent Google from indexing that junk page instead of linking to the final location of your article.

    Now that you have a lengthy list of keywords, choose two or three of them that you can put together in order to make a decent title. These keywords will preferably have a high monthly search volume, at least a few thousand. If your article calls for a subtitle, you can simply use the main title again, or just a highly searched keyphrase.

    After that, your going to have to come up with a list of keywords or phrases that are highly searched. Typically you would use between 5 and 10. These are going to be your "meta tags". If you are submitting the article to a place like Associated Content or Ezine Articles, there will be a section to place these in. However, if you are publishing directly onto an HTML web page, you will need to use HTML meta tags in the source code of the file.

    <META name="keywords" content="keyword, key word, i am a keyword too">
    Place each keyword or keyphrase between the quotes after "content=" and separate each word or phrase by a comma.

    Tip: If you are submitting your articles directly to another person, make sure to ask how and where to include the keywords pertaining to each article.

    Now all you have to do is replace a few of the phrases within the re-written article with a highly searched keyphrase. Make sure to replace them in such a way so they flow with the rest of the article. This is a common rookie mistake that often gets articles marked as spam.

    You should re-use the same keyphrase multiple times in the article verses using many different ones to ensure that your article gets listed on the top results page in a search engine rather than on the second or third page when someone types in the phrase. You may use as many keyphrases as you like to improve your page rank (PR), but it can be a time consuming process and you've got more articles to write, remember?

    Tip: Never submit anything without SPELL CHECKING!
