    • Spins words AND entire sentences (unlike other sub-standard spinners) so it produces truly unique article everytime

    • Special built in function to vary up your, word, sentence and paragraph count to ensure your articles are truly unique so Google doesn’t think they are duplicates
    • There’s already a huge built in thesaurus for replacing words, which you can add to also, should you wish, so you will never run out of synonyms to use, this makes spinning fast and easy
    • Automatically submits to Ezinearticles and other top article sites for you to save you even more time
    • Simple to use clean interface that is easy to navigate and requires zero technical skill
    • Works on Mac’s and PC’s for your convenience (no other spinner does this)
    • Able to produce HTML versions of your articles so you can add images and links
    Looks like the bonus with this over the best spinner are that it submit's to ezine and other article directory's quickly for you and also that it works on mac's (which TBS doesn't always).

      I am ready to buy an easy-to-use, but good spinner.
      So, I, too, would like to hear from others who have used this product.
      Is it easier and faster to use than any of the other good spinners, eg the best spinner, jet spinner, etc?

        A link to a rather favorable review below from someone who supposedly beta-tested RR. Would like to hear from other warriors first though before emptying my wallet yet again. Based on all warrior reviews Best Spinner seems no doubt the best, but is a bit pricey for someone in my current tax bracket. Terry Kyle likes (and uses) Magic Article Rewriter, so it would also seem
        commendable.

        Look forward to reading more of your critiques

          I purchased Rapid Rewriter when it first came out a few days and so far I like it. I haven't used any other spinner before so I don't know how valid my opinion is since I don't have anything to compare it to.

          For me it was easy to use. Doing it the way that Matt suggest to rewrite your articles I was able to come up with 25 unique articles in about 30 minutes. I only rewrote the sentenced three times not 5 like he suggested so you can definitely get more than 25 unique articles out one article. If you compare the articles they looked pretty unique and most you couldn't tell were the same articles originally.

          The thesaurus is pretty good and just about every word I have been able to come up with synonyms in the thesaurus plus you can add your own words to it as well.

          I haven't used the article marketing automation for rapid rewriter so I can't give you a review on that. I just joined SEOlinkvine and will test it out with that this week.

    Actually I have MAR and tested it with TBS. Same article: MAR 26% unique. TBS: 50%. and it was a short article of around 200 words. Also, TBS does submit to EZA and a couple others as well.

      If you used the same article with the same spin adjustments than how could it possibly be any different percentage as output? Sounds to me more like distorted measurements. When YOU really do a good job of rewriting the content yourself then letting one of these programs sort of "collate" the output into other articles, then you are going to get quality output. To me it's more or less what program you are comfortable with.

      When I watched this video, it didn't offer ANYTHING new really, so that gives me doubts as to the credibility of the programmer/marketer who seems to be touting the product like NOTHING else like it exists. I just found it weird that way.

      Also, I do not automate ANYTHING with EZA. I think that doing such is a threat to your account status there. Others article directories, sure, but I wouldn't risk it at EZA.

        I pretty much agree there. I've been using both and am finding they are pretty much the same, I just had to go a bit deeper. They're both good if you use them properly. That being said, I think I'll stick with MAR for fast re-writes, and Dragon/Yeti for writing

      • Profile picture of the author tkboy101
        As for Rapid Rewriter... well honestly, the videos on the sales page say enough. But I bought it a couple weeks ago.

        PROS:

        • It really does rewrite up to 200 unique articles with the click of a button.
        • Each sentence can be spun unlimited times.
        • Each word can be spun unlimited times with tons of different synonyms built into the system.
        • It can automatically submit your articles to up to 6 article directories.
        • There are two other paid options inside the article spinner that will allow you to get TONS of HUGE backlinks (I have yet to use them).
        • The guy who is selling it, Matt Carter is SO ethical. He doesn't send garbage to his emailing list, and gives TONS of FREE valuable content...
        • The package comes with a complete course on GOOD link building for getting plenty of traffic and PR.
        CONS:

        • Very time consuming to thoroughly seed a new article... A 37 sentence article will take hours to seed well. But you'll get a VERY unique set of articles. If you need a time table... it's been about 5 hours total... But hey, it's faster than writing 200 unique articles by hand.
        • When a word comes up multiple times with TONS of synonyms, you have to either copy and paste them from another, or re-select them all again (time consuming)
        • Honestly, the only cons I've personally found with this product is TIME.

          Yes, I've always thought that Matt Carter seems to be a really nice guy, and he does answer his emails.

          While reading all these posts I opened up a Notepad to paste much of the information in regarding your methods of using RR. They're great and thanks all.

          I'm wondering if someone could answer this question: What exactly does "seed a new article" mean? I always thought that there was a 'seed' article and that was the one that you started with, either the one you wrote yourself, had written, or was a PLR article. So, "seed a new article" with Rapid Rewriter? What would that mean?

          Thanks anyone!

            It means getting your PLR (or original) article properly configured before spinning.

            You rewrite the paragraphs/sentences, choose the correct synonyms for words/phrases and then identify the optional paragraphs so everything still makes sense when spun.

            If you take the time to do this correctly, you'll never end up with gibberish.

            But always give the articles a quick scan just to be sure.

    Buy it and try it out for 60 days...if you don't like the way it works or it doesn't fit your workflow, get a refund. Pros and cons are subjective in any case. Best thing to do is use it for yourself and see how you feel.

    Are there any spinners that really work? Most seem to require you to go back and edit anyway. It almost seems easier to rewrite it yourself, but that's coming from a writer so I don't know.

    I've found MAR works quite well, especially with the Magic Tokens function. The key is to turn on define synonyms first. Then hit apply magic. It goes through and adds everything in standard spin format usually starting at around 60%. then I hit rewrite article a couple of times. Any edits I do are minimal, whole process takes around 2 minutes. But it took some time to learn how to use it best and still requires common sense. No spinner can replace that.

        I watched the sales video of Rapid Rewriter and saw how Matt was using the software. It wasn't anything special, and didn't stand out from other article writers.

        Actually, SENuke now has The Best Spinner incorporated, so I would advise you to just get SENuke! =]

    Rapid Rewriter is excellent. It's the first piece of article spinning software i've bought so nothing to compare it to. But it does exactly what it says on the tin and more and for $77 it's a steal. i use it in conjunction with SE0LinkVine.com i.e. i spin it in RR and then import the spun versions to SLV to blast it out there.

    I didn't know matt carter before this product but he comes across as a very genuine, nice and trustable guy and committed to providing value to his customers.

    I have Rapid Rewiter, The Best Spinner and a few others.

    RR is my preferred tool and it works offline when needed.

    Like tkboy101 said, it can take time to properly seed your article, but it is well worth the effort.

    In fact, I hardly use TBS at all anymore and will not be renewing my membership. Honestly, I can't even dream up a benefit that would make it worthy of a yearly subscription (except perhaps affiliates getting recurring commissions).

    RR is a one time cost and the back link package you get is pretty decent as well.

    Occasionally I use AAS (Automatic Article Submiter). It's is a pretty good spinner in it's own right, but I still find RR more intuitive. But AAS is great for automated submissions. Both are one time costs, both have great support (but AAS is pretty thin on the training material).

    I've heard good things about MAR as well (another one time cost rewriter) but I don't own it.

      Hi All,

      I'm considering purchasing RR. We currently use TBS for our spinning and it works well.

      One feature i like with TBS is the ability to export into the different spintax formats (i.e. FreeTrafficSystem, SEOLInkVine, MAN/AMA, etc).

      I see that RR allow export into AMA and UAW formats.

      But does anyone know if RR allows you to export into more than just the UAW and AMA spintax?

      Later!

        There are dedicated buttons for AMA, SEO Link Vine and UAW.

        There's a Submit button for spinning and submitting to: EzineArticles, ArticlePros, Site-Reference, ArticleCity and SearchArticles. But that's more a submission feature than spintax.

        There's also a generic export button that will give you 50, 100 or 200 spun versions in plain text or HTML.

          RR is excellent. I have had it for almost 60 days now and will not be asking for a refund because it does what it says it does. Matt Carter did a great job. Plus, it is the only Re-writer that works on a Mac that I know of.

          It does take some time to complete a full article, but it saves time from having to create 50-100 articles on your own.

          One article took me 2 hours and 45 minutes to get 100 rewritten articles. It does not produce junk.

          Worth the money!

              Agreed. Matt gives excellent support and is also very open to user suggestions (if it will benefit all users).

              So if several of you guys really need spintax formats that are not included, let Matt know.

              Matt, if you ever visit WF and read this, I'd suggest letting people set their own spintax parameters so people can customize it to whatever submission service(s) they want to use.

              Then you'll never have to hard code the various spintax formats into different buttons again.

        It's pretty much a complete backlinking course in its own right. It covers topics like: Secrets to High Page Rank, Press Release links, Web 2.0 links, Article links, .gov and .edu, Spying, Blogging, RSS links, Profile links, Social Bookmarking links, Software links and Video links.

        One of the very few products I bought where the bonus blather turned out to be a relevant and useful bonus.

    I had been using Magic Article Rewriter for a while and boy, I am pretty much at ease right now. So, could not look at any other tools with the same kind of look.

    I had tried TBS before it went Premium and found it an efficient tool. But, it needs an internet connection to work and it's not standalone like MAR. But, the thesaurus it has is spellbinding.

    I prefer MAR to any other tools out there. But, I would not suggest Magic Article Submitter. Bought as a package but it does not work as it states in the video and sales copy. So, stay away from it. Period.

      I have been torn between downloading the best spinner and rapid rewriter. As far as what I have read in this thread, I think I will settle with the rapid rewriter. I know Matt Carter is one of the honest affiliate marketers and considering also the advantages of submitting articles to ezine.
