How not to rewrite articles

Don’t just create a copy of the original article by changing the words or sentences around. It will read the same. For the content to be unique it needs to stand on its own. The original and rewritten content should not be recognized as the same article.

How to rewrite an article

1. Define your purpose

Determine what your article will be used for and how many versions you need. For example publish the original article to your web site, blog or article directory. The purpose of your second (rewritten) article is to use it as a guest article on a high traffic web site such as an online magazine, ezine or blog.

2. Write the original article

Set a time limit and just start writing content so your creative ideas freely flow from your mind. Don’t worry about correcting the spelling or grammar mistakes until you’ve completed the article.

After letting it sit for a few hours or a day review what you’ve written before to make sure it is free of errors and ready for publication.

3. Rewrite the original article

  • Create a different title.
  • Rewrite each paragraph by using alternative keywords and altering the sentence structure.
  • Use the thesaurus to find synonyms for words you used in the first article.
  • Redo the resource box by changing the call to action and using different anchor text.

4. Create a fresh article

Sometimes it’s hard to rewrite the same article and not duplicate what you’ve already written. To avoid this write a new article from a different perspective using alternative keywords. They will spark new ideas.

Other ideas may include:

News articles captivate readers by beginning with a story. Do the same for your article but include some points they can act upon.

People love checklists because they’re easy to read. Create a checklist of points from your original article.

Frequently asked questions
Visit forums and blogs to read what questions are being the asked the most in your niche then answer them in your content.

Link your original article to the rewritten one(s) to improve its link popularity and search engine rankings. Don’t link to an article that says the same thing in different words. It will upset your readers. Instead only link to unique articles that compliment each other.

Let’s look at some of the ways to rewrite an article

1. Do it yourself

If you’re the person that wrote the original content it will be easy to write similar content based on what you’ve already written. Simply rewrite the title and paragraphs by altering the sentence structure and using synonyms or write the article from a different angle ie create a list, write a story, etc.

2. Ghostwriter

As a writer you often don’t want to write the article again. This may be due to:

  • lack of time
  • tired of looking at the same content
  • lack of creative ideas
  • lack confidence to create different content from the original
  • lack motivation

If you fall into any one of the above categories, consider hiring a ghostwriter to create another version of your article.

A ghostwriter will have a different writing style than yourself so the article will be fresh and unique. It will address the same topic from a different angle so it can’t be distinguished from the original.

To find a ghostwriter, enter “need an article” in the Google search box.

3. Article rewriting software

There is software that spins your article automatically creating 100s of even 1000s versions of the same article. The problem is that the article often doesn’t read well. It’s obvious it was not written by a human. These types of articles often get rejected by quality article directories.

Only use software which allows you to open up the original article to modify or rewrite it yourself then save several unique versions for publication.

I use Article Architect to write, rewrite and submit my articles to multiple directories. Other features built into the software include:

  • title brainstormer
  • keyword research
  • word/character counter
  • publishing content directly to your WordPress Blog

Instead of writing, saving and publishing one article at a time, this software will store all your articles in one location for easy access.

Article Rewriting – Top 5 Reasons to Rewrite Your Article

article rewriting
Article marketing is a proven method for building backlinks, increase search engine rankings and attracting a continuous stream of visitors. Most article writers will write one article then publish it on their web site or blog and submit the same article to multiple directories.

Unless you rewrite your draft article it will only be mediocre. Most professional writers rewrite their article several times before publishing it.

What does rewriting mean?

It means you can rewrite the whole article or just sections of it depending on the purpose of your content.

Writers who focus more on quantity than quality may spit out a 300-400 word article in 30 minutes then publish it immediately. This may be good for blogs and some article directories that don’t check for quality however rewritten articles tend to be of higher quality.

Top 5 Reasons To Rewrite Your Article

1. Improves content quality

When writing an article it’s best to just write as you think without going back to correct how it reads. It enables your ideas to flow easily. After completing the article let it sit for a while, review it then rewrite sections that can be improved. It will greatly increase the content quality.

2. Corrects grammar and spelling mistakes

It’s easy to miss grammar and spelling errors after first writing the article. If you let another pair of eyes check it they’ll often find errors that you missed. Rewriting it will eliminate the errors.

3. Create several unique versions

If you submit the same content all over the Web the first submission will be indexed by the search engines. If you want your content to gain more exposure rewrite it to create another unique version. By submitting different versions to the top article directories so you don’t have to worry about duplicate content. Each article will generate its own new stream of traffic.

4. Generate multiple streams of traffic

Every time you rewrite an article, use each draft to attract new visitors. Rewrite at least 20% of the original content so it stands on its own as a unique article then submit it to different publications.

5. Become a a guest writer

Your guest article should be your best one. It will be your final draft that has been rewritten several times. Contact your publisher to find out what length they require and tell them they’ll get exclusive rights to it. This means you it won’t publish it elsewhere. Often times it needs to be several pages in length. In that case bundle several articles together.

Don’t dismiss print publications like magazines or newspapers. Exposing your business to these channels attracts a wider audience as these visitors may not spend much time online.
