Actually, in several interviews with Google officials, they have made a point to specify the duplicate content is based on two precise criteria: the intent to manipulate and to be malicious. They have also said that they understand that not all duplicate content (including article marketing) has the intent to manipulate or be malicious.

You do not have to and you have never had to change anything about your articles before you submit them. This is another giant Internet myth that has run rampant due to lack of education.

Google understands that articles are a savvy marketing strategy and they have been long before link popularity and search engines took over. Write good quality articles and add them to your site. Then submit them to places that it makes sense to submit to. Google won't "penalize" you for it.

It would be helpful if people would spread the word about this just as they have helped to perpetuate the article myth. Let's correct this assumption and save ourselves a lot of extra and unnecessary effort.

It is fact that we are writing and rewriting, copying and pasting ( some refined people use a soft term "Inspiration" but i have no clear idea about it) the same thing over and over again. People prone to forget and this is what act as a bliss. But why blame just the content writer all the same. If you ask him to write 5000 words a day, what the poor guy would do ? He would have no other option but just to play juggling with some words and present in a different way. Whats more do you expect from him?

why everybody talking about search engine robot concern beyond readers experience ? if you like to get loyalty.try to write your own piece of content, you can rewrite it and that is ok as long you put your own personal perception with your article editing plus make sure reader can read it well and copyscape will see it as unique

Article writing is different from article rewriting. You have put it correctly. When you write a new article, you have to do some research work. This could mean visiting two or three web sites to extract information. You then have to write the article in your own words.

When you are re-writing an article. You MAY use the information already provided in the article you want to re-write. It takes a short time to re-write an article. That is why re-written articles are pegged at a lower rate. There is less work.

In my experience, article re-writing involves taking an article you've written and spinning it so that it can be submitted to multiple outlets. Starting out with original content is key, but the rewriting can often involve rearranging the words without producing new content.

These articles also aren't optimized when they are re-written. The idea is to present the same original idea to a variety of outlets.

In rewriting an article from another author and posting it as your own original article, you are in dangerous waters.

First it is unethical. Second you better be sure that there are no anchor text that backlink to the original author's site.

Yeah, as far as I'm concerned a rewrite is a regurgitation of your own work and not of someone else's. If you don't have a back link to someone else's work with your own anchor text, that is just good old fashioned plagiarism.

In my opinion if you are re-write articles then you may doing wrong things and you are trying to vanish your websites so, Make unique and creative articles otherwise you hire someone for this.

I think of this as two separate process. I like to write without censoring myself and just letting the words flow. Rewriting happens several times and is when I replace words and sentences with something more useful to the audience.
