    I have some articles called PLR Articles. Many people said it's good to my website content, but I am afraid of duplicate content.
    What should I do now? Using PLR Articles or not?
    Thanks,

    PLR stands for Private Label Rights.

    When you own a PLR article, that means that you can
    make any changes to it that you want and you can
    claim authorship rights. However, it is important
    that you attempt to make SIGNIFICANT changes
    if you are using them on your site. They need to
    pass CopyScape.

    Adding on to what Wiz said:

    PLR articles can be used for a website that you are going to promote with social media and don't care about SEO.
    They can be used in tiered link building, simply spin the article and link it to your 1st tier.

    Get a good spinner and use them for lower tiers :) Or rewrite them yourself and use them however you want.

    It's more appropriated for email marketing than SEO. A good strategy is to combine both unique content and PLR. You use your unique content on your website (so your site can rank) and you optimize your site to get as many subscribers as possible. Then you send them your PLR stuff by email.

    If you want to rank your site or your page on Google, then DON'T use the PLR!

    Write unique articles that pass copyscape 100% for site! Or you may hire a writer.

    You can also use PLR articles to create ebooks about a niche topic and sell them on the internet.
