It's easy to find free Private Label Rights online. Just type the term "free private label rights" into just about any search engine and you will soon be tripping over countless sites offering you hundreds, even thousands of free PLR articles and ebooks. And, usually, all you have to do is sign up for a mailing list, for which you're promised even more free PLR content.

But how much is this free PLR really worth? Is it as good a deal as it seems? Or are you getting what you're paying for?

Lack of Quality

Some free PLR content is as good as PLR content you pay for. But, with some free PLR, you will find that the quality of the writing is lacking. When reading some free Private Label Rights content, it soon becomes clear that English probably isn't the native language of the writer. And, even if it is, the content might still be filled with spelling mistakes and grammar errors.

Bad Information

When someone offers you 10,000 free PLR articles, you have to wonder where they got them all from. Well it's unlikely the person offering them wrote all of those articles themselves. And they probably didn't hire someone to write them for them either. No, in many cases, the articles in those packs are free PLR articles that they found themselves. Many of them are several years old. And, depending on the topic, the facts can be severely out of date.

In some free PLR, it's not that the facts are out of date. They were never considered correct by anyone to begin with. In these cases, the writer didn't do any actual research. They were simply trying to write something fast that sounded like it could be true, and didn't actually care how factual it was. Or maybe they just wrote what they heard or believe without bothering to fact check.

In either case, posting outdated or inaccurate articles on your blog or website can hurt your credibility.

Everyone Has Them

Even if free PLR content is well written, factual, and filled with good information, you have to consider the fact that the are freely available to everyone. If you found a site giving away thousands of free PLR articles, chances are several thousand other people did too. And, since the content is free, those thousands of people will feel few qualms about taking it.

On the other hand, when you buy paid PLR content, there is often a limit to how many other people that content will be sold to. And, even if there's no limit, you can still bet that fewer people will have rights to paid content than to free PLR content.

There is nothing inherently wrong with free private label rights content. But be sure to use it with caution.
