Where to find good PLR articles

PLR articles, or private label rights articles, are a good way to add useful, interesting, search engine friendly content to your website.

If you're building a string of websites, or a large site, writing a blog or distributing articles to article libraries, you need a lot of articles.

It's time-consuming and tedious trying to research and write all those articles yourself.

You can hire writers at places such as elance and RentaCoder, but if you've tried that, you'll know it can be done but it's not as easy as it sounds.

So you need a workable shortcut.

To help website owners in this dilemma, several websites provide well researched, solidly written private label rights articles.

These membership sites enable you to get hundreds of PLR articles for as little as 15 cents or 20 cents each.

They're a fantastic bargain. I belong to several PLR article sites.

You don't want to use articles that thousands upon thousands of other sites are using, so membership to these PLR article sites is usually strictly limited.

Rewrite for best long-term results

If you join some of these membership sites, I strongly recommend that you do at least a little rewriting.

You'll want to tweak and optimize the articles to help search engines find them. Often the articles have not been written with any particular keyword density in mind.

This is a good thing. It's means your articles will be unique. You can also add your own tone and personality.

Some webmasters in a hurry take a minimalist approach, leaving the article untouched but write a brief introduction and then add a brief comment at the end.

Others use RSS feeds to add content to the pages.

The more original and unique your approach, the more likely you are to have good long-erm results.

Some rewrite up to 60% of the articles and others play it safe, merely using the articles for inspiration and totally rewriting them.

Whatever system you use, it's much easier improving a ready made article than writing a brand new one entirely from scratch.

Good sources of PLR articles

Here are some good sources of private label rights articles.

Food articles, recipes, etc. Every month, Wendy Cook will provide you with 30 new food articles, 30 new recipes, 5 product reviews, and a 5 to 10 page special report. You can use this special report as an incentive for people signing up for your mailing list, or as an incentive to buy something. Plus you get a professionally designed ecover graphic for your special report. You also get access to affiliate program recommendations and other resources to help you succeed with PLR content. I've seen inside this membership site and seen the quality. For anyone in the food niche, this is exceptional value.

Stefan Everaet provides very high quality articles each month, plus superb graphics. For example, topics covered have included weddings, web hosting, wine, credit cards, birds, dogs and cats. He provides not just articles but complete niche content packages. Stefan provides very high quality articles. I recommend this site. It's excellent value.

UPDATE: Now hugely improved. You can choose between several monthly subscription levels. For example, if you're interested only in travel, you can spend your credits only on travel-related content.

Constant Content. Prices vary. I've seen prices from $5 to $75 for a unique article. If buy unique rights, the article is removed from the database. A counter shows you how many times the articles has been downloaded. New articles are added frequently. If you can't find what you're looking for, you can submit a request to the thousands of writers.

When you join any PLR article sites, be sure to read the terms carefully. They vary from site to site.

How to avoid duplicate content filters

Search engines inevitably are getting tougher and tougher on duplicate content. If you ignore this fact, you risk seeing a whole lot of your work go down the drain.

If you buy PLR articles never simply use them unchanged. That would be asking for trouble. Rewrite articles to avoid duplicate content filters.

For best long-term results, ALSO do your own research, add your own comments, add your own tone and personality, and make your site genuinely USEFUL so that people will want to recommend it.

Thanks for the great article Allan! If I may, I'd add two more PLR sites to your list:
I'm not affiliated with either site, but they are both great resources for quality PLR articles.

Hi everyone!

I want to add another great website I found: www.ClaimPLRarticles.com

This website consists of a huge PLR article Vault with more than 55.000 articles divided into more than 1350 niches or categories. I highly recommend it because here you can find the articles you need and only pay for them starting from $0.1 per article. No membership cost to pay, no onetime fee or useless article packs which only contain a few articles you can use... You even get a free automatic PLR article spinner!

Paul Vann.

I just checked out Mike Long's site, and it does NOT appear to be sold out. Unless he doesn't tell you that it is until after you've filled in the credit card info.

[It's normal for new places to become available occasionally on PLR sites as some members drop out. Allan.]

Great article. Here is another site for your list http://mydiscountebooks.com
You can get tons of private label rights ebooks and software. It's also updated regularly with new products. The ebooks can even be broken down into many articles and reports for lots of good content.

I just was wondering if you are allowed to translate to other languages when obtaining private label rights.

[There isn't one set of rules for all businesses which sell private label rights. You'll need to read the rules each time. However, private label rights normally means you can rewrite the articles in any way you like. That would include rewriting them in any language. Great idea! Allan.]

Wouldn't these be considered as duplicated content?

[Quite likely, yes. I believe you should rewrite PLR articles or hire someone to rewrite them. Do some research, add some new facts or comments, add your own personality etc. There's work involved, but it's faster than starting totally from scratch. Allan]

Said this on July 26, 2007 At 09:24 am
I went ahead and tried many of these. Your mileage may vary.

First: Plan to either rewrite or pay for the articles to be rewritten. If everyone rewrites 50% or more of the articles there won't be huge penalties for duplicate content -- and perhaps by having them rewritten the readers will learn more. I aim for at least 60-70% .. and often end up with a 100% rewrite. Note: rewriting is MUCH cheaper (and easier!) than starting from scratch.

Second: If the original article is fluff -- yours will be too -- you might as well be writing from scratch.

Mike Long's articles and www.nicheprivatelabelarticles.com seem to have the same topics for the month. I didn't subscribe to the latter -- and wasn't happy with the quality of the former -- though the price is so low -- I suppose I shouldn't complain.

I've been extremely happy with the quality of articles on plrpro. Their articles are much more expensive than either of the 2 above sites -- but in general the quality has been much higher. They offer bunches of support.

niche-content-packages.com (the first package that Allan recommends) is perhaps the best if you want to pick & choose your content -- and only get a little bit at a time. If you are wanting articles for a site you already own and the subjects match -- they are great. Allan's discount is great (Thanks Allan!) I often use their articles to supplement the plrpro articles. Good luck!

[Thanks for the valuable feedback. Allan.]

You suggested "secret article converter" as a tool to work with PLR articles. I'm interested. However, there is no info on their website about the program itself. I use a macintosh. I have written to the support people at "secret article converter" asking if this is a web based program or something that will run on a mac. But I have not heard from them. (Not very reassuring). Do you have any info on this program?

[Jeff has someone operating a help desk so you should have received a reply by now. The program is web-based so, yes, Mac users like you can use it. Allan.]

Allan, the tool you said can make articles unique (http://www.associateprograms.com/article-converter) is practically useless for me. I've been using microsoft words synonyms feature to make my articles almost unique and it's doing it better than that tool. Why are you endorsing it? Do you use it yourself?

[Thanks for the feedback. I tested it and it worked OK for me. I prefer to do rewrites the slow, old-fashioned way, by hand, but many people are looking for faster answers. Allan.]
