    guys

    i have been spending a lot of money recently on the outsourcing of article

    seek for your advice,

    apart from using CS, Grammarly, duplichecker, dustball, smallseotoosls, plagiarisemcheckerx

    and also using double " " to quote some sentence to check the content

    how do i ensure the content itself is not spinned or rewritten?

    because if they use synoym , its rather difficult to check, right?

    any pros or friends can share a bit?? much appreciated in advance....

    If you are so paranoid hire an editor. Otherwise, you can also go through the work yourself to actually see what's wrong. Spun and rewritten content generally leave a small trace. Also, they sound unnatural when you read them.

    I usually use some of these tools, BUT not all of them. However, I use trusted article writers here in Blackhatworld. Especially those who have written articles on websites I have flipped, which means that their article is ranking in SERP. What I mostly check is those whose articles help me rank on serp, and hmmm, not fiverr writers? I usually go for a little middle priced article writers.

    Mate, Copyscape and Grammarly are more than enough.

    Require your writers to put their reference URLs at the bottom of the article so you can verify if the content of their article is really based on those resources they used.

    IMO, Copyscape is still one of the best tools for that.

    You can get a feel of a writers content style too. It's easy as a native English speaker to spot when someone has used a translator/ spinning tool when the words used don't make grammatical sense.

    Copyscape is fine for checking uniqueness generally.

    It's relatively easy to tell a spun or a rewritten article, unless someone did what I like to call a "complete rewrite" which is taking a few ideas from the original article and writing another article from scratch.

    Copyscape will often catch spun articles. Did you try that?

    Just check with Copyscape.
    And read manually.

    Copyscape is a paid service, although very inexpensive. You get 200 credits for $10 which is 200 premium searches. Works great.
