Use This Free Paraphrase Tool to Rephrase Content For SEO and More

Paraphrasing is when you reword something that’s already been written — expressing an idea in a slightly different way. The essential meaning is the same, but the exact words change. Some people say “rephrasing” or “rewriting” to mean the same thing as “paraphrasing”.

So why would you need to paraphrase? There are all sorts of reasons, depending on what type of content you’re working on. Here are a couple of examples:

Content marketer: You’re working on a blog post about a topic that you’ve already posted about in the past. Instead of writing every word of your new post from scratch, you can use a paraphrase tool to rework sections of content from your old post. It’s important not to copy the exact words from the previous post, or Google may see this as “duplicate content”—which can cause issues with your search engine optimization (SEO).

Academic writer: You’re working on an essay or research paper and you want to put something into your own words rather than using a direct quote (perhaps because you’re drawing from multiple sources or because your essay will flow better that way). A paraphrase tool makes it quick and easy to do this. Or, you might want to paraphrase something you’ve already written for better readability—in this case, the paraphrase tool can function like a grammar checker.

In the past, paraphrase tools weren’t very sophisticated. Instead of using advanced AI algorithms, like my free tool, they simply swapped words for synonyms. Sometimes that worked fine … but often it didn’t. The words “chair” and “seat” can be synonyms, but you can’t turn the sentence “The Chair started the meeting” into the sentence “The Seat began the meeting.”

Today, AI (artificial intelligence) and NLP (natural language processing) mean that paraphrasing software can truly understand the language being used, rather than simply swapping one word for another. My tool rewrites the meaning of each sentence, even when that involves changing word order or restructuring a sentence completely.

How to Use the Paraphrase Tool to Rewrite Any Text of Your Choice

Ready to give the paraphrasing tool a try? It has a really user-friendly interface, designed for total beginners. Here’s how it works. 

Step 1. Give the Paraphrasing Tool Your Text (Up to 1,500 Words)

The paraphrasing tool can handle a big chunk of text — up to 1,500 words. That could be more than enough to rewrite a whole blog post or an essay.

All you need to do is copy your text (from a Word doc, Google docs, a webpage, or wherever you have it) and paste it into the input box.

Step 2. Choose Your Tone and Writing Style (RightBlogger Feature)

In the fully-featured version of my paraphrase tool inside RightBlogger, you can toggle between a bunch of different tone options—including our MyTone be feature that’s designed to write in your own voice & tone.

Ultimately, this free paraphrase tool can be used just fine with the “Default” tone selected like it is here above. It works particularly well for switching up your tone a bit with blog posts and for copywriting use cases. If you’ve got a strong brand voice, you may want to try out a different tone (with RightBlogger’s version of this tool) like “Fun & Quirky” or “Excited”. If you’re working on an essay, the “Formal” tone will probably be the best fit.

Tip: The paraphrase tool is completely free to use as many times as you want. Feel free to run it a few times and see what works best for your content.

Step 3. Generate Your Paraphrased Text

When you’re ready, go ahead and generate your text. The tool will get to work right away and you should see your paraphrased (reworded) text appearing almost immediately, before your eyes. In just a few seconds, it’ll be ready for you.

  1. Use the Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress to help you optimize your content
  2. Make sure you’ve chosen a suitable keyword phrase (relevant to your target audience)
  3. Optimize your headers for Google’s rich snippets (and faster indexing)
  4. Only use a single H1 header, for your post’s title
  5. Check you’ve used the correct header hierarchy (H2 subheadings, H3 sub-subheadings, and so on)
  6. Don’t cram your primary keyword into your text in an unnatural way, but do use it at least a few times
  7. Add internal links (to your own site) and external links (to other sites) to your post—aiming for at least 3–5 external links
  8. Craft an interesting and keyword-rich meta description for your post—this shows up in Google’s search results
  9. Write alt descriptions for all your post’s images, using keywords as appropriate
  10. Check your post is long enough—most posts should be 1,500 words or more
  11. Craft a meta title (SEO title) that should rank well, using the meta title generator to help
  12. Check that you’ve used your keywords in your post’s permalink (also called the slug or URL)

How Does the Free Paraphrase Tool Work? Key Features

I’ve designed the paraphrase tool to be super-easy to get going with and I believe it’s by far the best paraphrasing tool available for free … but maybe you’re curious about how exactly it works. Let’s take a deeper look at its key features.

Content (Paste in Any Text of Your Choice)

The paraphrase tool works with any kind of text … so go ahead and paste in anything you like. That could be:

  • Part (or all!) of a blog post
  • Some paragraphs from an essay
  • A piece of writing that you feel needs revision (e.g. awkward sentence structure)
  • A passage of text that you want to use as a source, without quoting it directly
  • Product descriptions

… or anything else you’d like to use. You can enter up to 1,500 words. If you’ve got a longer text than that, simply split it into sections. The rewording tool works paragraph by paragraph, so it doesn’t need the whole text at once in order to make sense of it. You could even enter a single sentence, though for very short texts, you might prefer to use my paragraph rewriter as a sentence changer (or just go straight to my paragraph generator and start from scratch with fresh copy).

Tip: You need to paste in your text for the online tool to access it. You can’t upload it in other formats (like a Word doc or link to a Google doc).

Tone & Writing Style: Choose Whatever Best Fits Your Work (RightBlogger Feature)

Like all my other powerful AI-powered tools, the fully-featured paraphrase tool inside RightBlogger lets you select a tone and writing style to suit your piece. There are 14 different tones to choose from, including options like “Irreverent” and “Fun & Quirky” that could work well for dynamic brands… as well as more sales-focused options like “Persuasive” and “Sales-oriented”. Though activating MyTone is def the move.

These tones make a difference to the style of the paraphrase. For instance, a paraphrase using the “Formal” style will include more complex words and phrases. A paraphrase using the “Casual” style will use more straightforward, everyday terms.

Language: Select Your Preferred Language (RightBlogger Feature)

By default, this paraphrase tool only uses English (US)… but in RightBlogger, you can pick a different language if you prefer (such as German, French, or Chinese). There are more than 20 languages to choose from. The language you select doesn’t have to match the input text, meaning that you can use the paraphrase tool to give you a rough translation of a text.

Paraphrase Tool FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Got questions about the paraphrase tool? I’ve rounded up some very common questions here, so hopefully these will give you answers to anything you’re wondering about.

Does this free paraphrasing tool produce text free from plagiarism?

The short answer is yes, this tool will create plagiarism-free content. The whole point of the paraphrasing tool is that you’re rewriting a passage of text in a fresh way, so the tool won’t copy any of your existing sentences. It also won’t copy sentences from elsewhere on the web. The advanced algorithms are designed to come up with entirely unique content.

The longer answer is that plagiarism isn’t just about the exact words someone uses. Ideas can be plagiarized too. If you’re relying heavily on a single source and you’re using the tool to rewrite large sections of text from that source, then your new content might still be viewed as plagiarism. Simply using a sentence rephraser doesn’t turn the ideas themselves into original content.

The good news is, there’s a really easy way around this. Simply cite the source of your information. In a blog post, you’ll normally do this with a footnote at the end of the whole (and a corresponding hyperlinked number in the text). You can learn about some useful footnote plugins for WordPress here.

If you’re writing an essay or a homework assignment, it’s best to ask your institution for their policy on plagiarism and their guidance on citations. You may be expected to cite sources in a specific way (e.g. APA vs MLA style).

How can copywriters and marketers use the tool to improve SEO?

If you’re a copywriter or marketer, the paraphrasing tool can save you a ton of time. Just a couple of ways you can use it are to:

  • Rewrite passages of older content to create fresh content. For instance, perhaps you’re just getting started with hub-and-spoke style content. If you already have some “spokes”, then you may be able to use the introductions or overviews from those pieces to create the bulk of your hub content. Just run your chosen paragraphs through the paraphrase tool so that you’re not duplicating the exact same content on two different pages of your site (which can be bad for your SEO).
  • Come up with social media posts fast. While social media shares aren’t a direct SEO ranking factor, the more attention you get on social media, the more likely it is that your post will get links from other bloggers. You can use the paraphrase tool to quickly rewrite content from your post for social media sites.

Can I use paraphrased text without attribution?

If you’re paraphrasing something that you’ve written yourself, or something that your company owns, then you can use the paraphrased text without attribution. For instance, you might have paraphrased some details from your About Me page to include on your Start Here page—you don’t need to disclose that and readers won’t care.

If you’re paraphrasing text that you didn’t write yourself (e.g. you found it when researching your topic, on someone else’s website) then it’s best to include a link to the original source, despite the fact you’re putting the quote into different words. That way, no one can accuse you of plagiarism or copying.

Will the tool always rephrase text in a unique way?

The paraphrase tool will always seek to rephrase your original text in a completely unique way. However, if you’re using the tool to rework a very short passage of text multiple times (e.g. you want to use the same information at the start of multiple blog posts), you may find that it rephrases one of the sentences in the exact same way in a couple of instances. There are only so many different ways to make certain points without coming up with some really strange-sounding word choices.

What other AI tools can I use to write content?

Whether you’re working on a blog post, a book, or an essay, there will be plenty of times when you may need some help writing fresh content. That could be because you’re not fully confident of your writing skills, or simply because you’re pressed for time.

I’ve got a whole range of (completely free) AI tools to help you. For bloggers, the article writer can produce whole posts for you, fast. Not sure where to begin? Try my keyword research tool, blog idea generator, and title generator to help.

If you want more fine-tuned control over your blog content, the outline generator, introduction writer, and conclusion writer are for you. (The conclusion writer can even help you with the first draft of a conclusion to an academic paper.)

Why did you make this a free tool?

This paraphrase tool is 100% free… and ya might be wondering, what’s the catch here, Ryan? Well, this is just one of dozens of free blogging tools I’ve built.

Back when I started blogging, I didn’t have much money to spare. I couldn’t afford all the fancy tools out there—even though I knew they’d really help me to grow my blog. Thankfully, there were some really kind bloggers who made some free tools available, and I was incredibly grateful for those people. They didn’t have all the advanced functionality of premium tools, but they were more than good enough when it came to getting me to the next level of blogging.

If you’re at that same stage of your blogging journey, I’m sure you’ll know just how I felt. Maybe you, too, are feeling tired of “free” tools that expect you to sign up and jump through hoops to use them. That’s why I made the paraphrase tool truly free. You don’t need to enter your email address or anything. You can simply use it as often as you want, without paying a penny.

These days, my blog has been incredibly successful and I can afford all the premium tools I need. I hope you’ll see just as much success as I have! Once your blog’s making money, I’d love it if you’d check out RightBlogger. It includes amped-up versions of all my free tools … plus loads more as well. I’ve kept the pricing as affordable as I can for smaller businesses, too.

Can I use the paraphrasing tool for academic writing?

When we designed the paraphrasing tool, we had in mind bloggers, content marketers, and other people writing online content. 

You’re very welcome to use it for essays, papers, and other academic writing if you want. I recommend selecting the “Formal” tone as this should suit academic writing better than the default option.

It’s really important in academic writing to cite your sources, so if you’re using the paraphrase tool to rewrite a passage from a website or book that you’re using for research, make sure you cite the original source correctly. Your academic institution should be able to provide you with guidance on this. 

You may also want to use a plagiarism checker to make sure your paraphrased content won’t get flagged as plagiarism.

Who is this paraphrase tool designed for?

The paraphrase generator is designed for bloggers, content marketers, content creators, and anyone who wants to paraphrase text to use in their own content. It’s a great fit if you’re a copywriter or an SEO professional working with other businesses—or if you’re a small business yourself. Basically, if you’re looking to create high-quality content that takes your blog to the next level, this is the tool for you.
