    Yes, if you are rewriting someone else's work. There is so much time spent trying to write original content, that I will always outsource when an article is needed. And even though the person that I chose writes thousands of articles on one topic, I believe it is impossible for anyone to plagiarize their own work. IMO

    Rewriting is definitely not plagiarism. You are taking the original sources information that maybe you didn't have access to (no insider connections, a smaller budget, geographical limitations) and turning it into your own version of the news. You must credit your sources for their work, which is usually done by linking the page where you found the info. Injecting your own personality is essential as well. You are trying to get readers to visit your site, and by writing a story better than another author, you can achieve that.

    Paraphrase it, use other words (you can use thesaurus.com to find synonyms)- so it's not considered as plagiarism. If you use sentences exactly the same as the original article, yeah. it's plagiarism

    No, rewriting the content is not the plagiarized one. Because ideas are same but the content differs.

    Rewriting a content with own signature is not plagiarism because it is not copied word by word with same structures but based on the original idea you can have diversions to create a new as well as interesting content.

    Rewriting a content can be plagiarism and may not

    Looking a various definition of plagiarism, plagiarism can occur when the writer fail to acknowledge or give credit to the author or source of information

    Rewriting your content, giving credit to authors or source of information, doing proper citation, quotation or paraphrase can avoid your content from being plagiarize

    I believe failing to adhere to copyright law, content policy or plagiarism will make you a plagiarizer Plagiarisim content is dangerious.png

    Rewriting in a form of different content or to be based on your opinion is not considered plagiarism.
    Unless if rewriting it in a way that you will just replace certain words, or construct it into another sentence then that would be plagiarism.

    Get over it People. Everything in Life is derivative. Warhol clipped from Campbell's. The Beatles stole from Chuck Berry. Picasso had no influences, you believe that? Its an evolutionary process. Formula: 1. Borrow + Improvise + Evolve; 2. put those ingredients into your creative blender; 3. mix well; 4. voila ! (if you are lucky...you have created something that has never existed before (but, remember, it didn't appear from thin air).

    I would jokingly admit that rewriting is sort of art. You need a vocabulary, intelligence, and style to be good at it :)
    Joking apart: this is plagiarism and evil. But it may be a necessary evil you should not be proud of.

    I'm late to the party but I do not think it's plagiarism. Like others have mentioned before, you have to place your own style and understanding into the subject matter for it to be unique to you.

    Now look...basically above...I've rewritten what was stated in the threads before me. Have I plagiarized their responses? Or is it my own response? It's the same topic. It's similar statements to those before me. Interesting huh?

    I suppose if you write the same idea but put into different words - it's some sort of a plagiarism. But if you take the same tips and develope your own idea - it's not

    Everything is a remix. Creative writers (and creative people in general) are developing their content based on everything they've previously absorbed. Also, an increasing number of blogs and other textual resources you'll find online is not written for the sake of information, educating people and similar, but rather to fulfill the goals of a particular business. Very often, copywriters write for clients without being familiar with industry the client belongs to. As a result, we're flooded by content that is actually rewritten. If this is the case, there are many online tools which can help you identify how original your content is.

    Indeed! There only 7 music notes and 26 letters in the alphabet. We all inevitably rely on something that has already been produced, before us.

    Hello all members.
    I am Turkish webmaster. This subject is very important also in Turkish articles. We tried these all. We wrote 1 article. 1 Spin with bots. 1 rewrite.

    Written article's ranking is very high.
    Rewrite article's ranking is not too bad.
    Spin article's ranking is not in 500.

    So in Turkish you don't use spin. But i belive that, in English or another languages are more lucky.

    It doesn't matter the plagiarism checker shows the spin content plagiarism or not. But the content is copied and worthless for you because that content already posted on another website. Spinners do not make your content new they just change the words but thematically the meaning of the content is same so why the user wants to read the content again when thematically it is same.
