A Look into the Private Label Rights Industry

Lately, I have been reading a bit about the Private Label Rights industry. In the writers network, it is popularly referred to as PLR content. When I came across this industry for the first time, I had completely discredited them, primarily due to the duplicate content theory.

In the case of PLR content, the problem is even bigger. You join a PLR membership site and share a pack of articles every month with anywhere between 200-1500 members. It is duplicate content problem multiplied because each one is paying for the content consciously.

However, in the past few weeks, after I started off the Niche marketing experiment, I was exploring options for cost effective writing solution. After all, when you move from 1 blog to 2 and 2 to 4 and 4 to 8, you need a solution to manage the content part. It so happened that, when I was exploring my options, I came across PLR content again. This time I decided to take a deeper look.

I checked out a few services and zeroed on PLRPro.com run by Daniel Turner and Marc Lindsay. I cannot tell you why, but I could sense honesty in them. Plus, they were offering a $1 trial. I signed up, downloaded one of the packs and the VRE Guide and to avoid any abuse on my part, I canceled the subscription. It would be unfair to download 440 articles for $1.

I admit the quality of their articles is very good. Anyways, I took out 2 articles from the pack of 40 I downloaded and decided to do a mini experiment. I opened up an article, timed myself and sat to re-write it. When I finished the job, I checked the time to see I had taken about 8 minutes to complete it. I moved over to the next article and repeated the process. This time it took me about 10 minutes to complete the re-writing job.

I then went ahead and open up DupeFree Pro and compared the Original Article 1 and my re-write. Here is the result.

Duplicate Content Myth

The first article, when compared to the re-write had a difference of about 93%. DupeFree Pro showed similarity of 7.065%. Here is the second article.

Duplicate Content Myth 2

This time, the difference is about 94%, which means a 6% similarity. According to experts, there should be at least a 30% difference to make an article look acceptable, while the respected level is 72%. In under 10 minutes, I was able to perform better.

This experiment honestly has given me a new perception about PLR content. I can suddenly sense a myriad of possibilities. Okay, not really myriad, but I can see profits in these article packs. The primary usage being Niche marketing. Re-writing really isn’t that difficult. I was able to re-write articles almost completely in 18 minutes.

Do you have any experience with PLR content?

  1. I have had the same thoughts as you on PLR, and now I am having second thoughts thanks to you.

    Great article and very interesting experiment.

    I might give it a try using the articles I have received from Affiliate Silver Bullet.

    I have to test DupFree Pro as well, I have never heard of it before, but it sounds like a great tool.

  2. […] cheap and have reasonable quality. Rewriting them is not really difficult. Read my experiment with Private Label Articles for a better […]

  3. Good quality PLR is much easier to find these days. Like you, I spend 10 or 15 minutes rewriting and have a brand new article. No one has something brilliant to say every day so PLR is a great solution.
