    I'd like to get your opinion regarding this. I'm planning to make a blog whose content I'll get from an e-book (with and without copyright). Do you think the big G will find out about this (with or without the use of article-rewriter)?

    Sorry for the very noob question.

    Unless that eBook is published somewhere else on the web (and usually even then) it's unlikely that Google will penalize you for it.

    Make sure you do a quick google search by copying and pasting random lines from the book to see if someone else beat you to it. If it doesn't come up in any search results, you are good to go.

    That's good to hear. I already have a blog with original content and I'm planning to have another blog that is niche-specific.

    Be careful with this... Copyrighted material are such a bad idea to copy and paste to your blog even if it was spun. I learned it with my own experience :(

    Juist check if the content does not appear op search results when you copy paste ramdom paragraphs. Besides that, original and unique content is the best and surest thing.

    I did this once for a complete blog: (10 pages), the steps I recommend:
    1. First copy and paste the part that you want to use from the e-book in Google.
    2. If it doesn't appear in the first page, the next step is to either use spinning software like TBS to spin text, or use the Dragon Naturally Speaking to rewrite it in your own way (the best option).
    3. Make it on-page SEOptimized (I use easy wp seo plugin to help me with this) this will increase the uniqueness of your article.
    4. Post it.
    Good luck.

    Make sure that content is not posted elsewhere on the net.
    Big G will penalize you for plagiarism, may de-rank your website.

    I wouldnt do it. Id put a really good spin on it. I come up with mostly all my own material. I wouldnt copy another web page or copy right material. I think they would catch on sooner or later.
