10 steps how to rewriting articles

10 Step Article Rewrite Walkthrough

Ideally, you should be rewriting the whole article. The rewriting process takes about 10 minutes if all related materials are prepared. It is important to rewrite whole article as it literally guarantees that you will have the one and only copy of this material (technically) and probably by meaning which will ensure great benefits from visitors and search engines as well.

Step 1: Read the Article

Go through the article once so you have an idea of what it is about – this will help in rewriting it later.

Step 2: Change the Headline

Keywords always come first, but can you change the headline to add something more creative at the end? A headline must also be short to work well, so you’ll have to balance that too. Your best bet is to add a related keyword to the headline – for example, if the article is on antioxidant supplements add the words healthy or health into the headline. And make sure that it makes sense and isn’t gibberish.

Step 3: Add a subheading

The subhead, despite its notoriety in sales letters is actually quite useful in providing focused, relevant information about the article to the reader. If you can write a 1-2 line keyword-rich summary of the article, put it here.

Step 4: Rewrite the introduction paragraph

Just reword the intro paragraph and don’t worry about changing too much or too little. Think of a different way of putting across the same point.

Step 5: Create headings in your articles

Slice and Dice – break up your article into 2-3 sections, give them headings and rewrite the first few lines that go after each heading. Subheadings can be also useful when compelling one article out of 2 or more other articles.

Step 6: Create a list(s) in the middle
Slice and dice again – break up a paragraph or two and turn it into a list – whether it is of features, of symptoms, a checklist, etc.

Step 7: Rewrite the last paragraph

You’re almost done – go through the last paragraph (or the last two paragraphs if they are short) and rephrase them again. Follow the tips given in the previous section for what type of words to use, but basically as long as you stay on topic, use related keywords and paraphrase, that’s all there is to it.

Step 8: Create a call to action at the end of the article

For articles that are submitted to article directories, your intention is two-fold – you want to drive readers to your site, and you want the links from your submitted articles to help your site rank higher in the search engines. As such, it makes sense that the end of the article should contain some information about the author and his site as well as a direct link back to it.

For example:
John Adams is recognized expert from Nottingham.

Step 9: Add links

Use keywords in your article to link to sections of your website – specific articles, categories, etc. Do this so that when the article is picked up by the search engines (in the article directory), they will count these links as backlinks to your internal pages and your search engine rankings will improve as a result.

Step 10: Review

Take a couple of seconds to go through your rewrite – is the headline ok, does the subhead make sense, does the new article have a conversational flow to it. Make sure you haven’t missed out anything and that you’ve formatted things properly (links, images, lists, etc).
