Getcher fresh, hot article-spinning irony heah!

39 replies
So, one of our less-well-informed members swiped the copy from an earlier WSO and used it in toto. Complete. The whole hog, without a bristle out of place.

Told me it was from his swipe file, and seemed to think adding things at the end made it okay. So, I went looking for an explanation of the proper use of a swipe file, in the hopes of educating the silly critter. I found this tragic piece:

This is the sort of dreck that makes people want to choke the living bejeebers out of anyone who even utters the phrase "article spinning." This is the kind of crap that wastes the time of hundreds of thousands of people, every day. And it's why Google is slapping the hell out of so many sites.

If you pump out this kind of garbage, you deserve every finger of that slap. But one perhaps a bit more than the others.

        Aw, come on... here's some spintax. Just plug it into your favorite spinner:

        {Why|How come|Precisely why|The reason why|Why should} {intend|signify|mean|convey} {yourself|oneself|all by yourself|on your own} {nuts|insane|silly|crazy|disturbed}

        Some great results, too:

        How come intend all by yourself disturbed
        Precisely why signify oneself nuts
        The reason why intend oneself insane
        Why should signify all by yourself crazy
        The reason why convey on your own insane

      Hey Paul,

      I just checked it out and got the same thing too and some unwanted popups to boot.

      Not sure, but you may want to kill the link.

          That site owner couldn't even win a bad writing contest with that mess. That was one of the funniest I've seen in a long time.

          What really makes me curious though is how did the site owner get Verizon, Lenox and Turbo Tax ads on there. I thought that most companies vetted their affiliates to avoid this type of site???

      Actually it is spinese for "outhouse leaf" which was very popular during the caveman era well before toilet paper was invented.

      Of course, poison ivy ran amok resulting in the switch from the ever popular outhouse leaf.

      I see Thomas Crapper's family is getting a bad rap here.

      BTW, legend has it, the modern day toilet bowl was invented by a gentleman by the name of Thomas Crapper in England. Who knows if it's true.

        Naw, he didn't invent the modern flush toilet, and his name also isn't the origin of the word "crap". Just an interesting coincidence that he happened to be in the crapper business.

    Absolutely hilarious, Paul. I was just asked this week by one of my buyers whether one of my products had resale rights...he had implicitly "assumed" that it came with these rights even though I had not mentioned it anywhere in the sales copy! People treat copyright infringement far too lightly, and unfortunately when they finally realize its implications after encountering some legal/punitive action, it's already too late.

      Another tip for you article spinners:

      If you don't actually have a good article spinner, what you can do is go over to babelfish at yahoo. Then you paste in the text you want to change.

      Translate it to chinese and then from chinese back to english.

      It works like a charm. Here's an example:


      Original text

      "How to write original articles without spinning.

      If you want to make loads of bucks then you don't have to spin. Write lots of original, high quality content and put it on your own site.

      Create backlinks and away you go."



      Here's the english to chinese translation and back to english:

      "How to write the primitive article, does not use the rotation.

      If you want to make buck loading then your don' t must rotate. Writes many primitively, the high grade content, and invests its alone selected location.

      Creates backlinks, and you get out of the way."



      So as you can see, it works like a charm. You don't have to buy spinning software and so save mucho dolla.
