A Note From Mila




I hope you had a great weekend. Last week the kids went Trick or Treating and they all looked so cute in their little costumes... unfortunately all that fun and cuteness was followed by a few days of sugar overdose until mom finally had to be the "meanie" and ration the candy! I snuck a few for me of course ;-)


This week I have a favor to ask. Would you mind taking a few seconds to fill out our short survey? It asks just one question - "What is your number one question about marketing or working from home?"


We've already had some great replies and if you've submitted a question, we will definitely be answering those over the coming weeks. Keep your eyes on the forum and expert blogs. We're also working on some free information specifically based on the questions you've been asking.


Can I ask you to take a quick minute and answer here?


Please include as much information as you can and if you'd like feel free to add your email and name so that we can contact you when we answer (it's not necessary, however, and you can stay anonymous if you prefer).


Also a quick note to say due to popular demand, we've added 5 new recipe packs to All Private Label Content - each pack includes 30 lengthy recipes - you'll find a holiday pack, vegetarian pack, healthy pack, kid-friendly pack and a diet pack. Head on over to and grab a few, they're only 7.99 each and you'll get automatic access to our private member's only forum too!


Our holiday advertising page is also in full swing. We do have a few spaces left, scroll down for more information on that great advertising special, WAHM talk radio notes from Kelly and our featured success article. Have a great week!

That’s it from me; scroll down for your featured article and to learn more about what’s happening in the work at home mom community!


Wishing you much success,

Mila Sidman, editor Internet Based Moms

Another holiday advertising option we have is to place your ad in a special mailing we'll be sending out to our subscriber list in early December. With over 11,000 subscribers, this is a great way to promote your product or service. Advertising spots are filling up quick and the deadline for submissions is Nov 15th so grab your spot before they are all gone.

Using PLR "As Is" - Is It a Good Idea?
By Mila Sidman

Just recently I received a question from Mara – she asked:

"When beginning to use PLR content, is it better to use it basically "as-is" or is it better to make it your own by editing it? I know if you use it "as-is," it might cause some problems with the search engines, but would there be another reason for NOT using them "as-is"?

Great question Mara, thanks for asking. In the past I’ve used PLR “as is” and I’ve gotten good rankings for those pages. Your results will depend on several factors including how old your website is, your current ranking, etc.

Although you can easily use PLR “as is” and get results, I recommend that you add a little personality to the content for two reasons – one to spice the writing up with your own thoughts and personality and two – to provide further original content for your visitors.

The debate about duplicate content continues. I personally feel you can use PLR content as well as reprint articles as long as you also balance it with original content. If you build a “quickie” site with just PLR articles it’s probably not going to rank as high as a site with a combination of different forms of content.

A quick way to add original content to your articles is to provide editor notes – add a short introduction about your thoughts on the specific issues or what your personal views are on the article. You can also simply rewrite the introduction and the closing or add a few extra paragraphs to flesh out the article.

The bottom line is that starting with a PLR article (for most of us) is easier than staring at a blank screen and starting from scratch. It can really help you get started and that’s the main thing.

Another one of my favorite uses of PLR content is to bundle it up into either a free or paid ebook or report. This won’t have any bearing on the search engines at all and can help you get started on that product you haven’t had time for. Your visitors will also appreciate free content packaged into a nice little ebook. Add some additional notes or pages of your own and you’re on your way!

I hope this helps and if you have any reservations about using PLR content all I can say is that I’ve used it on my own sites (including Internet Based Moms). Here’s a great little article about duplicate content you may find interesting as well –
