When I purchased Micro Niche Finder a few days ago, I was asked for my mailing address. The purpose of the request for my mailing address was so that James J. Jones, creator of Micro Niche Finder, could send me a USB drive that contains the MNF application.
Today, I received the USB drive and with it came an offer letter for “the BEST private label rights software on the planet”. Yes, that’s exactly how it was worded. Called “The Ultimate PLR Article Collection”, it’s a software that you can install on your computer with a database of private label rights (PLR) articles that you can use as content for your niche websites.
I was offered a $20 discount for The Ultimate PLR Article Collection, which usually sells for $67. There are supposedly over 32,000 PLR articles in this collection.
And because I think Micro Niche Finder is really an awesome tool, I guess I expected the Ultimate PLR Collection to be at par with MNF in terms of quality and usefulness. I was wrong.
With my high expectations, I purchased the PLR collection and downloaded the 110MB application. I was excited when I installed it, expecting that it would really help me build my niche websites quickly since I no longer have to worry about content. Wrong assumption.
After I installed the application, I tried doing a search for articles in the niches that I was targeting. I came up with a lot of results and it looked promising at first.
But when I copied parts of the articles and pasted them into Google search, the reality that The Ultimate PLR Article Collection is just like any other PLR collection struck me. There were thousands and thousands of other pages that contained the exact same articles that I retrieved from The Ultimate PLR Article Collection.
It was worthless. Over 32,000 articles that have been duplicated several thousand times over.
Some people will probably say, “Hey, it’s PLR. What did you expect?” Well, I expected more because I thought that the same great company that came up with Micro Niche Finder would not produce a crappy product.
Others would again say, “PLR articles are meant to be rewritten.” If I wanted to rewrite something, I’d just run a search on Google, find a good article, and then rewrite it. And if PLR articles are meant to be rewritten, how come there’s thousands of duplicate copies on the Internet of the articles that I found from the “ultimate” PLR collection?
So if you’re thinking about buying The Ultimate PLR Article Collection, I would recommend that you don’t. Save your money.
If it’s PLR articles (of the same quality as this article collection) you’re after, check the Content forum on DigitalPoint. You can find PLR collections there with the same number of (duplicate) articles for dirt cheap prices (I remember buying a collection of 50,000 PLR articles for $5).
You might ask, “If it’s crap, why are there so many websites out there that are telling me to buy it?” It’s because these websites that are recommending “The Ultimate PLR Article Collection” will get commissions from your purchase. Welcome to the world of Internet marketing.
If it’s really quality content that you’re after, your best bet is to either write the articles yourself or outsourcing it to someone. Duplicate articles, such as the PLR articles in The Ultimate PLR Article Collection, will only negatively affect your niche website’s search ranking.
