    I'm having this done to me on Fiverr and it's getting on my tits.

    Is it something like an ASCII format change or something like that?

    You copy and paste the content in Word and it's full of red underlines, due to Word not recognising the format - run it through Copyscape and it appears unique, even though it isn't.

    I saw it mentioned on here a while back but can't find it, but surely some of you guys know what I mean?

    I cant remember how its done either or what the format is.

    Why do you want to know? considering selling that crap yourself?

    No!

    I'm just interested in learning how people are doing it against me. Although I do wonder if it'll work with Adsense, or on Web 2.0 properties. It's fraud, if you're charging people for it though.

    Yeah I'm doing some reading up.

    I currently pay $5 for some manual rewrites (750-1000 words), so I'm not actually sure if this is worth the risk. Google aren't stupid, and I don't think it's worth risking with the use of Adsense as a ban would be down to a matter of time.

    Buffer / Web 2.0 sites? What are your thoughts?

    Personally I wouldn't touch it unless I was doing a mass spam churn/burn type campaign.
    For a long term money site I don't see the point in using it and even if you are doing tiered link building you can get cheap spun content for that.

    Google hates this kind of unicode rubbish, i tried it years ago and when i looked at the article on an iphone the unicode was there, articles where just a jumbled mess. Not worth it

    add tons of images, quotes and reshuffle the paragraphs.

    buzzfeed does that with millions of readers.

    scrape, scrape images, reorganize, mention the source, publish.

    You'll have indexing troubles if you do try this. Like Wilson said,don't do it unless you're going all out on a spam campaign.

    this ^.

    Just get cheap spun content or find a really cheap writer. I know a lot of writers who would be willing to work at a rate of $1.50/300 words (yep, seriously). Obviously you get what you pay for - but I'd pick that over the UNICODE method any day.

    Yeah, I'm slowly growing my bank of writers and I'm thinking the only way this would be worth it, is if you used Social Media traffic, so you didn't care for Google and it was something like CPA - but then of course, you might as well just do an autoblog.

    I know the trick. It angers me when I find this as a mechanism to fool copyscape. I however found that if you use google translate, and translate an article from the original, to say German, then from German to French, from French to Afrikaans and then back to English. You end up with a fairly unique article.

    I have actually thought of building a simple UBOT to make this a lot easier. You always need to remember to read the final article before you publish.
