    I am article marketing as with just a few articles i have seen a good amount of traffic.
    One thing i am not good with is writing and i have no money to outsource work. So what i am doing is re writing articles that are on the article directories and re submitting them.

    I am using word flood to help me do this and i just want to know how much of the article do i have to change for it to be seen as new content.

    At the moment i have been changing 20+% of the articles.
    Is this enough?

    Quite frankly, I've never used a spinning program, but in my personal experience re-arranging the articles along with some rewriting is necessary. I don't think that 20% is enough, though I'm sure one could make an argument to the contrary. I think what SE's are parsing for is exact phrasing being used. If you're re-arranging each sentence by "20%" you're probably fine. If you're just re-arranging 20% of the article, you might want to take a look at other software, or finding a partner who can write well. A quick article spin shouldn't cost you that much and the service might even be worth a profit share.

    I find that making them about 80% unique is fine. for a 400 word article this is simple.
    It may be cheaper to find article re-writers rather than just writers too as they already have a base to work off.

    40%-50% seems to be the magic number I think
