Find Inspiration from Offline Sources

Published by

We all should know by now that taking somebody’s article and rewriting it won’t do us much good these days. We also know that spinning content is a thing of the past and if we do it today it can harm our sites, right? That is correct, and I’m not suggesting that you go out and find a article online to spin and rewrite. At this point you may be asking yourself, “so what’s the point of this post Bernard!?”

Well even though I do agree that it’s a bad idea I also know that it is only with content found online. I mean, what if you were to rewrite content found else where? How would Google know? Sounds to me that if you got content offline you wouldn’t have to worry too much.

Now I know that this sounds like an attempt to game Google or whatever which I do think some people who read this post will use Kryptonite and go after Superman, but I assure you that is not the case. At least not with me. I’m actually Batman who happens to be Superman’s ally. That’s right, and who also happens to have a Kryptonite ring just in cases Superman decides to act up. To go slightly off topic here and explain my analogy, Kryptonite (spun and rewritten content) is Superman’s (Google) weakness and Batman (me) keeps a Kryptonite ring on him since he obviously can’t match superman’s strength.

Anyway, I also just happen to have ideas fly into my skull that I feel are good and I simply share them. I guess that makes me a blogger. I also like to mention that I have not used the following method personally, yet. Now with all that being said, allow me to share a method with you on how to go about rewriting articles and still benefit from it.

Look for Articles in Magazines and Newspapers Related to Your Niche

It sounds rather obvious now doesn’t it? I mean, how would Google know if you took an article from a magazine and re wrote it? You may also ask yourself “What’s the point of rewriting content, if I’m writing then I might as well write the whole thing myself.” Well true, but keep in mind that for some people this method might be easier, and it also can save you “some” time.

Keep in mind that when I say “rewrite” by no means do I mean word for word. No matter where you get the content from it’s still plagiarism if it’s an exact copy. I know that this won’t stop people from sneaking into my Batcave, taking this idea and copying the entire article. But I figured I would risk the biscuit and share my method anyway. Now for those who have integrity, what you can do is just write down the facts and the points made. This way you can skip the research part of it in case you are unfamiliar with the topic at hand.

Get Inspired

Once you have written down some facts you can Google, and dust off some free spinning softwares to spin your articles. Once the key points have been spun you should do some minor editing and make sure that you find it presentable. Once you have done all that you can attempt to write the article from your own unique perspective by adding your own twists to it. Doing this would save you some time by taking away the research portion out and still give you a chance to write a unique article that won’t get Superman to come pulverize your rankings.

Summary

Find some articles inside of magazines and newspapers that you like and write down all the facts. Once you have written them down (assuming they were word for word) you can spin and edit them. After that is done you can proceed with the article by filling in the gaps.

Well there you have it, I just presented you with a way you can be inspired by offline sources and still write unique rewrite and spin articles that will keep both Batman and Superman happy.

  1. Hi Bernard,
    I would say that this a very interesting idea, it can be even applied to online articles you may find online that talk about the same topic to build a new unique article, you should give credit to posts you used to build up yours, this way there is no harm for all, right?

    1. You do have a point there. There really wouldn’t be harm. What I was referring to is those black hat methods that people used to get away with a few years back. Now doing that I don’t recommend.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

  2. Very interesting perspective here. I am not familiar with spinbot, but will definitely take a look at it. I agree with your point as well. Taking something you find online and trying to make changes to it and put it on your own blog is not a good way to try to build traffic and increase ranking. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Tom,

      The crazy thing is that at one point I actually thought it was a good idea. That’s why I had to go back and revise my post. I was unintentionally misleading people. But now that I know more I can provide correct information which is “don’t spin and rewrite articles you have found online.” That extra bit there is bonus. 🙂

      Thank you for your comment. 🙂

  3. Hi,

    I’m not so sure about this, and I would give credit and resource where I found this information at the end of article. But that’s just me. Thanks for sharing. Sally

    1. Hi Sally,

      The credit here goes to my brain. I had the idea and decided to share it. I’m not afraid to share my ideas. I have not tested it so use at your own discretion. But it just sounded logical to me so I have faith that if done right there shouldn’t be any harm in it.

      If anyone disagrees let me know and if need I can revise the post. 🙂

      Thank you for your comment.

  4. As per my knowledge, spinning the articles comes under the Black Hat techniques. These are strictly banned by the Google.

    1. I do agree, spinning articles can get you in trouble. Thats why you shouldn’t use the ones you found online, only time I feel that it’s okay is when you spin key points that you found in magazines and newspapers.

      Thank you for your comment.
