BadArticle reviewed

6 comments

Some of you might be aware that besides maintaining this blog, I also earn money online by providing article writing and rewriting services. Therefore I am especially alert when there is important news regarding this trade. Few days ago, I stumbled upon an online tool to help rewrite an article, to make it unique. The tool has a most curious name - BadArticle.

Unfortunately, this tool will only work with Internet Explorer 6+ onwards and requires prior installation of Microsoft Word 2003. I am lucky that I have both.

I wish to test out this article rewrite tool, to see how much of a threat it is to us, freelance writers who make partial income from rewriting jobs. Below is a sample text which I feed into BadArticle and the rewritten text. Note that BadArticle will only start to rewrite an article having a minimum size of 1000 (characters or space, I guess, each line break is worth 2 characters). My sample text is padded with some random sequence of alphabets so that I can use the tool.

This is a sample article written by BobbyT to test out the BadArticle rewriting tool.

Search Engine Optimization experts have mostly agreed that having unique contents will usually rank sites higher than others with duplicate contents. Therefore it is vital for webmasters and
bloggers to type out their own unique posts, or hire an article rewriter to do the job.

Well there is another alternative, there are automated article rewriters which will convert an article into a unique post. Who needs human to do the job when we have an obliging piece of computer laying around? Now you can feed whatever articles you want into BadArticle, it will produce (hopefully) unique articles out of them.

How to test whether BadArticle has done a good job or not? Use copyscape, feed it the article produced by BadArticle, if there is no duplicate found on the Google index, then that particular article is fairly unique.
Here is the rewritten text:

This is a model term written by BobbyT to analyze out the BadArticle rewriting tool.

Search Engine Optimization experts have typically approved that having rare filling will generally rank sites higher than others with duplicate inside. Therefore it is essential for webmasters and bloggers to print out their own single posts, or hire an condition rewriter to do the job.

Well there is another alternative, there are automated clause rewriters which will convert an critique into a rare advertise. Who wishes creature to do the job when we have an obliging example of notebook laying around? Now you can nourish anything articles you want into BadArticle, it will construct (hopefully) exclusive articles out of them.

How to examine whether BadArticle has done a good job or not? Use copyscape, nourish it the thing produced by BadArticle, if there is no duplicate found on the Google symbol, then that particular section is justly sole.
From my analysis, there is a total of 153 words in the text and BadArticle replaces 31 words from the original text with alternative words. 31 words out of 153 total words is a change of about 20%. The rewritten version is not really intelligible but I am partly at fault here. BadArticle provides for users to change the suggested alternative words on the fly before it outputs a final rewrite, which I did not mainly because I want to demonstrate the true capability of this tool without human intervention. Another reason why the rewritten version is not that good is because of my uncalled for preferences for out-of-context verb such as feed and adjective like fairly which could carry many meanings.

If any of you intend to use this tool for unique articles, I would advise that you proofread and revise the rewritten text before publishing it, your readers would probably misunderstand your meanings if you just blindly use the rewritten text without revision. Based on the performance of this tool, I shall conclude that article rewriters would not be out of job for a long time to come, yet. However, BadArticle is a new tool and is probably being improved even at this moment when you are reading this review. Besides, what more could you ask for from a free tool and service?

Test BadArticle yourselves, don't just listen to my unqualified assessments! Get unique now!

Sounds like a dodgy tool to me, unique is what it says to me unique.

Nice find, though I wouldn't recommend it... BadArticle replaced some words with inappropriate ones. ;)

What can I say? There are definitely better scripts, tools and softwares out there for rewriting an article, but most of them aren't free.

(is that grammatically wrong? hehe!)
