PLR Articles: What They Are, How to Use Them, and Where to Find Them
Perhaps the best way in which to give your website a ‘head start’ in terms of content will be through the purchase of a PLR article (or a few!). On this page, we are going to talk a little bit about what PLR article packs are, what you can use them for and, perhaps more importantly, where you will be able to source quality PLR articles from.
What is a PLR article?
Think of a Private Label Rights article as a ‘readymade’ article. Everything has been written out for you, well researched and, hopefully, in a fairly coherent manner. This content is, for the most part, ready to go up on your website.
A PLR article is slightly different to other content that you purchase though. This is because, in most cases, you will not be the only person using the PLR article. It will be sold to dozens, sometimes hundreds, of different people. This means that your PLR articles download will be far cheaper, although you are not going to want to put the content right up there on your site straight away (we will discuss that soon). The content that you have will need to be changed to be something which is a touch more suitable for your target audience.
An article set download will, more often than not, contain a selection of PLR pieces that you can use on your website. Yes, you can purchase articles PLR individually, but it is far more cost-effective to get PLR articles in 2016 in a ‘bulk pack’, even if you do not end up using all of the content.
What can you do with PLR articles?
Now that we have discussed the PLR articles meaning, it is probably worth discussing a little bit about what you can do with the article PLR.
When you complete a paid or free PLR articles download, you will, most likely, find that it comes with licensing information. This will tell you what you can and can’t do with the content. In almost all cases, you will be able to put the content up on your website and, in some cases, distribute it via your mailing list. However, it is unlikely that you will be able to do much more with it. That being said, there have been some PLR articles in 2015 that have been ‘released’ which allow you to sell the content on. This is very rare and you will probably be paying more for the content at the start, but it is at least something worth looking into.
It is suggested that you never put Private Label Rights content up ‘as is’. Sure, it may be useful content, but it is going to be unlikely that you will be able to rank highly in the search engines with it. This is because dozens of other people will be using exactly the same content as you. Regardless, PLR content is not designed to be put straight up on a website (even though that is what some people do). Instead, it is meant to serve as the ‘base’ of a new article. All of the research will have been done for you, all you need to do is change up the content to better suit your audience.
When you purchase PLRs, no matter how good it is, I suggest that you give it a complete rewrite. Use the research in the content, but give it a new spin. Make it a lot more interesting. If you can, run it through CopyScape, or a similar plagiarism checker. This will enable you to ensure that your content is 100% unique!
If you are not going to be putting the content up on your website and will, instead, be sending it out via your mailing list, I still suggest that you give it a rewrite. You have to realize that the majority of the people on your mailing list will probably be subscribed to similar lists. These lists may also be using the same PLR as you. If you distribute something that a person has already received (and they will know!), you are just going to come off as lazy, which is not something you want when you are trying to make a sale!
Sourcing quality PLR articles
Whether you are looking for free PLR articles or looking to buy PLR articles, it is absolutely vital that you know how to source them well. Whilst poor quality private label rights articles may be cheap, it is going to require a lot of effort on your part to get them looking brilliant. You may as well put that effort into producing your own content. It will save you time and money.
Perhaps the best suggestion I can make is to only opt for PLR articles from reputable vendors. If a company is a big name in the world of PLR, then there is a pretty decent chance that the content that they produce is readable. Remember; it is highly-unlikely that you will be using the PLR article ‘as is’ on your website. It will require a little bit of tinkering. However, the better the article is at the start, the less tinkering will be required on your part.
When you are looking to download PLR articles, you should always check the titles of the articles that are on offer. Unless you are getting an absolutely fabulous deal on the best PLR articles, you need to know that what you are getting is going to be of some use to you. The best PLR companies out there will not use generic titles for their PLR content. Instead, they will use titles which really catch a person’s eye and have the potential to include useful information in the content. After all, that is what sells!
If you can, try and purchase new PLR articles (i.e. just as they are released). This way you can be fairly positive that you will be one of the first sites online with that type of content. This will make it far easier for you to rank!
