I would love to read you guys opinion about those article spinner tools or software.

Is it really necessary for SEO or article marketing? Does it really make a difference or boost your SEO performance tremendously? Is it user-friendly to use?

Just tell me, is it really worth to spend the money to get these article spinner?:confused:

    I would not say that it is absolutely necessary but it can be a very useful tool if you plan on distributing content in a large number of places. I can literally right one unique article (which always goes to ezine first) then spin it to about 70% and have an unlimited number of articles to distribute wherever I want.

    With that being said I personally do not put to much value on the link juice that you get from article directories. I use this tool because I have a large number of web 2.0 properties that I am trying to build up a decent page rank to and I want them to all have unique content. But to answer your question, NO an article spinner is not a necessity for SEO. But the more tools the merrier. If you do plan to get one I have heard really good things about the best spinner, I use Magic Article rewriter though.

    You don't need to spin articles to get good SEO results. You can use the same article and just change the titles.

    Unique content is the King of SEO. You should use article spinner if you cant write unique article. It will give much worth to your SEO campaign. I use article spinner for getting the links from articles which are unique.
    Remember it is not necessary, you can take good results without using article spinner. The main advantage of article spinner is that you can generate more unique content in less time.

    I would love to see some proof that article spinners work. Sure, they might help you pour out a lot more articles but surely you would not want to post one here, right? Are you confident that your spinner will not make you look like a fool if you post an article here or anywhere else?

    Do they bring more targeted visitors to your website?
    Do they improve your search engine position?
    Do they help you sell more product?
    Do the backlinks from those other 100 article directories help?

    C'mon, let's think about this. Show me some proof and I will back off. Can you fool me? I'd like to see an spun article that I can't pick out of a lineup.

    Show me the money. Please.

      I have numerous blogs that contain only spun articles, and the more
      mature sites bringing in cold hard cash every single day, even though
      I've not touched them in months. Will I show you proof? No. A lot of
      my blogs are on Blogspot, and I don't want to give them a reason to
      search and destroy. In addition to that, I only show my girl friend the
      money.. oh.. and the TAX man. I have nothing to prove here.

      I like to use Unique Article Wizard. It is not a word spinner that turns the article into an elementary school literature assignment. It is a service that takes 3 articles (about 500 words each) that you write on the same topic with varying keyword titles, and rearranges the middle paragraghs and titles. Then it submits the varying versions to hundreds of blogs and article directories. They even have a free plugin for wordpress. I have dozens of blogs and have over 100 page 1 search engine ranking keywords, article titles and blogs, with millions of search queries and advertisers using their service in the last 3 months. I get between 500 to 700 backinks from each submission and great content for my blogs.

      I have tried a couple of spinners and services that spin the copy and most of the resulting articles make me out to be an uneducated loon. It is best to just use the same article and just change a couple of keywords at the beginning an end to match the title keywords you are targeting. The search engines primarily focus on the title if the content is relevant.

      It is actually better to host the article on your own blog or website and then bookmark it to social media sites like mixx.com, Digg, or linkagogo.com and others. there is one service called Onlywire (there is a free wordpress plugin), that allows you up to 5 submissions (different articles) to 34 of the top social bookmarking sites per day. It is free if you install their bookmark button on your site or $2.95 per month if you don't. I can usually get page 1 ranking within a day for the title of an article, even if it was submitted to my blog by another author. It is the best free SEO tool I have found.

    I would have to strongly disagree with the statement "Content is king". I proved that to be false a couple of weeks ago in an experiment. I ranked page 1 Google within hours of posting a blank Wordpress theme, with nothing more than a title and tagline. I beat over 6 million competitors and advertisers on Google with no content whatsoever.

    The truth is, Wordpress is King! Title and tagline are the most important things and most websites, blogs and seo tools block out the tagline. Oops! I shouldn't have given away my secret for consistently beating Ezine articles and even wikipedia in search engine ranking for my articles. I could probably charge a lot of money for that tip. Want proof? I'm not afraid of a Google Slap. I can have 10 more blogs at the top in a couple of weeks. See video for proof. Oops, I'm new here. I can't give url until I have 15 posts. I'll try to have it up later today or you can search Youtube for Title "Content Is Not King Anymore" by brifowler1.
    I am getting ready to launch a product on the site and it is not finished, yet I already get a lot of traffic and signups from page 1 Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask Answers, etc.

    Wordpress rules!

    Personally, I don't think article spinners are worth the bucks you pay for them. It takes a lot of work to put substitute words and phrases in the program and then the output looks like a 5th grader wrote it. Thumbs down on article spinners. You're better off just taking a PLR article and manually modifying it. I do it all the time. After awhile you can get fairly proficient and can modify an articles in a matter of minutes. You should make certain you inject the keyword phrase in the title, first paragraph and last paragraphy to help in the SEO game.

      Hi keivn2,

      An article spinning tool is just a tool. Some of these tools are much better than others. It's not the tool, but how you use the tool that makes all the difference. If you just click a few buttons and expect that you are going to produce high quality content with a spinner you have it all wrong.

      To get quality you must use human authored content. That is not to say that a human can't use an article spinner to rewrite content. A really good article spinning tool will allow you to select, or author, all the alternative paragraphs, sentences or words that make perfect sense to human readers. Then you can use a human editor to refine or improve the final product. There is absolutely no reason that you can't output the exact same quality with a good spinner that you can do manually.

      You would probably be amazed at the amount of high quality content that is produced with an article spinner in the hands of a skilled editor. You probably read spun content daily that you could never tell was spun. It's only when you see a half-assed application of these tools that you are aware of the silly content that is produced.

      To use an analogy, some people use article spinners by just letting the tool spit out random synonyms. That's kinda like mowing your lawn by just putting your riding mower in gear and letting it run across your lawn without a driver. It's gonna cut some grass but it's gonna be ugly!

      If you are rewriting articles on a regular basis, you'd be foolish to not consider a good article spinning tool. You can put out the same level of quality and increase productivity by a magnitude. Quality is determined by how you use the tool!

    Straight up: article spinning software is a load of crap.

    First off, even if they would work... how well would it convert online marketing is about sales, not website visitors. Only the noobs think it's about visitors but they don't pay the bills.

    Secondly, Google is able to spot similarities VERY fast so spinning part of articles won't do you much good... and why spin for hours and re-spin and translate into different languages and translate back and bla bla... when you can use the same time to write an actual GOOD article?

    Thirdly, people aren't stupid. If you use a competitors stuff as your own, then people will notice. Very good for your rep

    Last but not least: expect penalties, the original content outranking your spinned content, and maybe even a ban from Google.

    Article marketing is, like back in the old days, still about writing good articles. Not about stealing from others.

      You got it certainly right!

      Setting duplicate content penalty aside as it is just another myth and it's a different story, just the very fact alone that it would be quite easier for original content to outrank pages with duplicate content. Why waste time spinning articles of others which still turns out to be duplicate content? It's just a load of crap and a total waste of time..:rolleyes:

        Exactly!

        I should have been more specific when it comes to penalties though because Google does, indeed, not penalize duplicate stuff (although the original content is older and thus more likely to rank above the spinned piece of content because age is a ranking factor)... I meant penalties in the sense of if you think article spinning works then you may also think auto-article generating sites that live off of RSS feeds might work too and that WILL get you penalties lol!

      Article spinning works but you must use it wisely. You can't just throw it into a tool for it to churn out garbage.

      Here's how I do it. Get original article rewrite the article 3 more times ie
      3 variations of a sentence.

      So now you have "4 unique" articles right? Push the button and create 1000 variations of this article.

      I've found that article submission websites are pretty poor in indexing the article and worse, they never get approved by the admin of the website.

      So instead of using article spinning for article directories, I placing these articles on web2.0 properties / paying a broker to post articles on his own wordpress site.

      90% indexation rate! Article directories have been spammed to hell so you've little / to no chance of getting it accepted.

      I think article spinners are a good option, because currently Google isn't really able to distinguish between texts with different words and "almost" same meaning (no matter what they say).

      My colleague has been using an article spinner and he has only improved the positions of his website.

      But, if you wanna be sure, just delete and exchange some paragraphs after passing your text through an article spinner.

    It is definitely not necessary and i find that i rarely actually use mine. Especially at this point in time when google doesn't perceive backlinks from articles to be as high quality and getting a ton of them quickly won't necessarily provide your website much value. That being said, spun articles do provide a little more juice generally but it is hard to measure the true difference.

    All in all, if you are strapped for cash i wouldn't use what little money you have on this. It certainly isn't a must have software and there are far more important things to pay attention to in SEO. After all, some people never spin their articles and just syndicate their original article.

    For some it might be a necessary deed to spin articles specially you want to submit in multiple sites. Spinning can be helpful to some, buts the wrong thing of spinning is not having the time to proofread the articles you spin. Grammars can be sloppy and it doesnt connect to the next what your talking.

    Here's my response to the initial question of this topic. Article spinner is an optional tool that you can use if you want to diversify your link building techniques. Nobody says it's a must to own it but I am pretty sure it can come in handy.

    Basically if you are link building on web 2.0 properties you will surely need the article spinner so you don't have to do all the work, writing one unique article for each web 2.0 property, so here's where the tool will come in hand.

    Leaving that to the side, you can SEO-optimize your links without the help of this tool and you can achieve the same results in serps but with a little bit more work.

    I hope this answered your question!

    In my 'humble' opinion, it's all down to the strategy you use for your SEO campaigns. Content spinning (if done right) allows you to cover a wider field.. more quickly, as most of the time you need some kind of content when building links.

    Of course, to convert people into buyers then high quality, hand written content wins out everytime.. but we are talking about SEO. The practice of implementing a strategy to help improve search engine rankings. Of course spinning has it's uses otherwise so many people would use this tactic again and again. It's how you use this tactic.. and what you use it for that's important.

    It depends of the marketing plan of a website. If you are intending to do mass article submission in article directories and web 2.0 sites, you must own a piece of article spinner. Though it is also very important to maintain the quality of spun content.

    It all depends on what you're using spinning before. There are cases (such as your money site) where spinning probably isn't a good idea, and there are cases (such as Tier 1 or Tier 2 links) where spinning will do a great job minimizing footprints and helping you rank higher.

    There is no use when you are placing same content/article on multiple sites as it will never be approved and published on top sites as this is considered as duplicate content. So by anyhow you need to place unique content either by writing unique content or by spinning the content.

    Hi keivn2!

    As of today. article spinners still work if you spin them in the sentence or paragraph level. Today, Google has already targeted and punished sites which spin in the word level. The algorithm became stronger and that is why many sites that spin in the word level have dropped down.

    Overall, it is still advisable to purchase spinners as this will syndicate your content in a more diverse way. Another point to remember is to also spin your links in order to avoid a penguin penalty.

    Hope this helps.

      The bolded part above is simply not true! How exactly does Google know if a word has been spun? You can make the case that Google may eventually penalize for poor grammar as this is always the case with content created using that magic "autospin" button.
