Amazing Way to Get 100% Unique Articles for Free!

Unique Articles

Unique content is what drives many internet marketers entire marketing strategy. You can generate hundreds if not thousands of backlinks from submitting a ton of articles to directories as well as having great articles on your own site. So it is no surprise that many search for ways to get lots of unique articles inexpensively and expediently.  Well my friends, I have found quite an amazing way to do this (as you can see by the title.)

Have you ever heard of the people that translate articles a few times from into a few different languages and then back into English to get unique content.  It does generally produce unique content, but it is a jumbled mess!  I adopted this method, but altered it big time.  You translate articles from other languages into English!  It’s only one step so the translation is fairly good and not many other marketers do this so you will get 100% unique articles (for English).

Here are the steps laid out nice and easy for you:

  1. Go to Google translator and translate “article directory” into German or whatever language you want.
  2. Go to Google and search the translated term. (This will give you a bunch of German article directories.)
  3. Translate your keyword/phase into German with the Google translator.
  4. Open a few of the German article directories and search for your German keyword.
  5. Now translate the articles into English. (I leave the author box because what comes around goes around, but I’m sure you would never get caught if you didn’t.)

There you have it, a 100% unique article for absolutely nothing.  The articles do have minor grammatical errors due to translating, but you can hire a rewriter from GetAFreelancer.com or Odesk.com for 7-8 bucks an hour.  Generally a rewriter can rewrite 40-50 articles in an hour, so you are paying about 15 cents an article.  That is amazingly low! Or rewrite them yourself and safe 6 bucks.

This method is an amazing way to kick start a new site or just gain some much needed backlinks.  I even attempted to automate this whole process but alas my programing skills are not what I wish they were. Aside from that, if you have any questions about the process or any other great ways to get unique content I would love to hear them in the comment section below.

Yeah it is a great way to get some free articles. I wouldn’t use any of them on my main sites, but on a squidoo page etc, it works very well.

Are you sure that Google wont penalize you of duplicate content in this issue? Because Google is smart enough to know the translated matter..

i actually looked into this. And from all information that I cam across, Google does not count translations as duplicate content. I have never had a problem with this in my own experience either.

I understand that this is used in generating income from multiple sources, but why not focus on creating a website where you write and post unique content? Couldn’t this end up becoming worth the effort as far time/profit is concerned?

I am fairly new to the whole marketing/making money online game, so that might be a stupid question.

By no means a stupid question. Your main focus is your own website. Your main website is the one with all the unique, awesome content. I would use these free articles for either a squidoo page or submit them to article directories. These are mainly to build backlinks to my main website.

Writing awesome content is not enough these days. I am going to butcher some quote and say, “For every minute you spend writing, spend two promoting.”

As someone who writes 100% unique content, I would be ticked off to learn that someone is translating my blogs and putting them up in another language. Stealing is stealing no matter what language you’re in.

I also get really tired of the argument “Everything on the net is copied”. That’s what I hear when I confront people that steal my stuff. It’s not true.

I’m sure Google frowns on this as well. After all, Google did the translation, they know it’s translated material and will probably drop your site from search.

To me, it’s not worth it. Plus, I can’t see paying someone else to reedit stolen work. That sounds silly. Why not just pay them to write a new article?

I don’t want to come across as angry, but stolen content is a big issue. Other people shouldn’t make money off my hard work. I’m fighting with people now who have stolen my articles and images. Some take them down and remove them saying “I didn’t know”, but others just ignore the situation and treat it light-heartedly. It’s a never ending battle.

Just my opinion! :) Now I’ll go back to dinner… lol

Yeah, I never said it was 100% ethical :) I think it is like 90% ethical.

Think of it this way:
If you don’t translate it, people who only read English will never have the ability to read this content. Essentially you are helping the guy spread his word. You get the added traffic or whatever you are looking for, for the work done translating it (nothing is free). Second, I do make sure to credit the author, I do not give him a link, but I put his name down as the author.

As far as Google frowning on this: They state “Though we do offer a handy translation utility, our algorithms won’t view the same article written in English and Spanish as duplicate content.” Seen in their Google Webmaster Blog.

I am sorry for your troubles with content theft, you can contact Google and ask they are removed from listings. Or a better option could be to contact their hosting service. If they are a reliable host, they will often shut the user down, or threaten shutdown if the content is not removed.

And on your point about paying someone to write articles. I have done that, and basically had to rewrite them anyways. It takes the person a couple minutes to rewrite a translated article, but 20 minutes to write a poorly written article.

Thanks for the opposing arguments Richard! Glad to see that some people actually read the posts and get emotional enough to argue! Enjoy your dinner.

Yeah I know. I already feel like my ebook is translating as we speak. Someone in Japan bought it a couple of days ago. :( Next week, I’ll see the whole thing translated, translated again and then put on someone else’s site which ranks higher than mine…

No argument, this is something that happens and it’s fact. I’ll get over it. :)

Why is everyone always looking for a way to rip off other peoples articles? Come up with something unique and of value for your readers. It’s okay to get ideas from other sources but if you want people to value what you say then you need to be unique. Just my opinion.

I wouldn’t mind if someone else was doing this to me. It harms me in no way, and in fact, helps spread my word. Like I said, I would never use this for a site such as this one, it is more for squidoo pages to get backlinks and minisites.
