    I take an ezine article and rewrite it.
    Wordchecker shows 80% unique, and yes it passes copyscape.

    Can rewritten articles considered as a "quality content"?

    What's you guys' experience?

    when many sites do review on same product then it will happen all naturally that some are similar

    i'd take 2-3 different articles and then compose 1 from those and then do a rewrite
    this way you get almost perfect uniqueness

    Honestly this all depends on how well Google can detect 'dupe' content. Nobody can give you an acurate answer. Having said that, 80% unique and passing copyscape is good.

    Yes it can, but not without a decent rewrite :p You want to aim for just a little bit more than 80% if my experiences are anything to go by, and it's sometimes worth using 2 plagiarism checkers instead of 1, there's a surprising amount of difference between them sometimes!

    Edit====> Why the hell would you want to rewrite something off Ezine articles?!?!!? It's all total crap on there! Plenty more stuff to rewrite on the web than that.

    Of course. If you rewrite something well it shouldn't resemble the original.

    Also it depends on what you are using the content for. Good information given to your audience will get you results because it's good information. If it's lacking, the best rewrite in the world won't matter.

    As far as SEO is concerned, I haven't seen evidence of a search engine downranking a site because of rewritten content.

    I wouldn't even use article base to be honest. You'll spend more time trying t find a usable article on an article-farm than you will rewriting the dang thing :D
    Go for something off an authority site, use google newssearch to find an article from a newspaper or (And I really shouldn't be saying this, but I'm a so generous it hurts lol) Go on Digg, and find the most dugg item that matches your niche (be prepared to go back a few years :p), that way you'll know what you're rewriting is worth your while :D
