Giving power to the people, we’re now enlisting the million+ folks who visit EzineArticles.com the ability to tell us if an article is not original content or worse.
You can find this new feature in the article tools to the upper right of any article.
It’s the last menu item.
Just hover over it with your mouse and it’ll give you an option to report the article as suspect for us to further investigate.
The majority of expert authors send in only original content that they have the exclusive rights to, but for the very small fraction that may not follow the posted editorial guidelines or author terms of service… we’re going to enlist the help of our users to identify low value or suspect content.
We know this may raise our workload, but it will also help us keep the database clean of content that shouldn’t be in the database.
In the end, we’re doing this to raise quality.
It also will assist the legitimate authors to know they are in better company as the lowest quality articles get nixed… who knows, it might even help raise the bar so that authors know they may lose their account if they attempt to abuse the rules by sending in PLR or non-authorized content.
We’re always open to your suggestions and comments as this new system is rolled out…
