Rewriting an article is an ability that many writers think they have, but very few in reality, do. The need for rewriting an article could encompass many reasons, and the methodology used to attack the task will in the main depend on the motives and the requisite outcome, but each will have their very own pros and cons, so let’s have a look.
The first reason we will look at is the case of article directory submissions. The preparation of a rewritten adaptation of a previously commissioned article in order to obtain two articles instead of one, allows for one version to be placed on a website, for example, and the rewritten one could be submitted to the various article directories. The reasons for doing this are to offshoot the disadvantages of competing with other people utilising the exact same content. On article directories, although gaining valuable backlinks through the resource box, one is actually challenging for keywords against all the other websites that are using the very same article. One could then be faced with the problem of duplicate content and all that particular scenario entails.
The same approach is similar for the second reason, except this time one may want to use the same article for utilising a particular keyword on many web sites, in effect, competing against themselves.
Another quite common reason, and the third one we will look at, is that a person may require an article to be rewritten so that the same article can be used for an assortment of keywords. Obviously this method necessitates a slightly different rewriting style as two keywords very rarely have the same connotation.
A fourth, more contentious reason is the total rewrite of a particular article so that the end result is entirely different to the original. A person may decide that a specific article could do a great job for them, either on a website or on a directory, etc, but may decide it needs to be rewritten in such a manner that it’s distinguishable from the original article.
Obviously, this type of process would generally indicate that a specific article has been pulled from the internet, while removing all traces of the author’s resource box. Basically a person requires an article to be rewritten using their own name in place of the authors, and presented in such a way that the genuine author will not be able to identify it. This procedure though is very much pushing the margins of plagiarism and should definitely be considered as one of the downsides of article rewriting.
People should bear in mind that if they require an article to be rewritten, they should establish what their intentions really are. If they are not careful, a rewrite could potentially damage their site listings as opposed to improving them. For those requiring the actual gist of the article is to remain exactly the same, they should realise that article rewriting itself is not as easy as most people believe are led to believe.
