EzineArticles expert author, Mike Banks Valentine has a very thought provoking ‘colorful’ article worthy of your attention: Original Web Content Popularity Leads to Software-Created “Frankenstein Pages” & Copyright Abuses
Mike identifies (4) sources of web content in his article… one of which he refers to mashed PLR articles as “Frankenstein Pages” (credit to Barry Schwartz for coining the phrase)! I couldn’t agree more. If his article can help others from buying those crappy PLR content scramblers, the world will be a better place.
It appears it’s going to get worse before it gets better… This past week yet another PLR club was launched that fraudulently said her articles were original… when in reality all 200 of her new clients are getting non-exclusive rights PLR content.
“Original content” means you have the EXCLUSIVE rights to the content. Therefore it’s an oxymoron for someone who hawks PLR articles to call them “original content” because it’s not exclusive to you, which makes it non-exclusive rights content.
Mike is right… that we have stepped up automated identification of PLR content combined with increased complex sentence matches by a team of editors trained to spot and identify frankenstein content (it’s a lot easier to spot than you might think).
We’re taking our responsibility to keep out non-exclusive rights content very seriously.
Watch for yet another innovation we’ll be introducing next week that will help catch, trap, reject and ban those who send in PLR content.
