How to do it Effectively in 8 Easy Steps
To spin or not to spin, that is the question...
For those not in the know, article spinning is
taking an original article that you have written and turning it
into a whole new article by replacing words and phrases with synonyms
(appropriate words or phrases with the same meaning), changing the
sentences to say the same thing in a different way and even replacing
paragraphs with those same sentences repeated in a different order.
Those paragraphs can also be placed in a different order, providing
the content continues to flow and is easily understood.
Most articles are written for article
directories for one of two reasons and sometimes both: -
- The author has a message that he or she would like to share
with the world be it educational, for their own entertainment
or simply a desire to get something off their chest.
- They want to take the reader to their web site to either improve
the search engine rankings with back links or to attempt to sell
Writers generally spin articles so they can submit
them to more article directories maximising their creative efforts.
To keep their article sounding fresh and new they spin it. This
way they can give out the same message over and over again but with
The advantages of spinning articles are
as follows: -
- Every article directory will receive an originally worded
article from the writer that no other article directory or blog
- The writer has a better chance of ranking well on search
engines if they pepper their article with different but relevant
keywords for the search engines to pick up.
So how can you spin an article?
- Manually whereby you do all the processes previously mentioned
to create new articles one at a time from your original article.
- Automatically by using an article spinner program that applies
all the processes above. Once set up correctly you can, in about
the same time it would take you to create one new article from
your original manually, convert your article into literally
hundreds of different versions in a few clicks of the mouse.
Some purists hate the use of the latter and you
will find plenty of writers lampooning article spinning programs
and with good reason. Since the creation of article spinning programs,
article directories have suffered an onslaught of articles that
are not only badly spun but in some cases are full of plagiarised
content. I mean why bother writing your own article when you can
pinch an article from someone else and spin it, right? A big fat
Look, in reality no article and no story, for
that matter, is one hundred percent original. We are all part of
this world. We read things, we hear things, we see things and consciously
or unconsciously we regurgitate what we have learned and share it
in our own unique way. Fair enough. That is okay. What is not okay
is to completely steal another writer's work and writing style and
try to pass it off as your own by simply replacing a few words and
phrases utilising an article spinning program.
I therefore saw a need to share my thoughts on
article spinning utilising this controversial method and how, if
done correctly, it could enhance your business and web site rankings
rather than destroy them.
Make sure you get an article spinning program
that you can own outright and have on your computer so you have
the ability to mould it to your writing style and add your own
personal synonyms. This also avoids yearly fees and any problems
associated with internet downtime that is possible with online
spinners. I recommend Magic
as it is the only one I have found so far
that fits this criteria.
The article you want to spin must be interesting,
original and written in your own style. The only way of being
completely sure of that is to write it yourself. If you must
pay someone to do it, make sure you own all the copyright. This
article needs to be created in a document that is saved outside
the program. You will always want to have the original somewhere
in case things go haywire with your spinner and you want to
start again. Do not under any circumstances create your original
article in the spinner program.
So now you are ready to start spinning. Before
you start replacing every word or phrase you can, I suggest
you select headings, sentences and even paragraphs if you like
and rewrite several versions of each. This will give you a better
spin later on. You can spin your article at any time to see
how these different headings, sentences and paragraphs flow
Once you have completed step 3 and are happy
with your spins, you are now ready to utilise the program’s
synonyms and carefully select all that are perfect replacement
for the words and phrases in your article. A good spinner will
allow you to create your own to add to the synonym database.
I suggest doing this whenever possible. You want the program
to adopt your personal writing style which will help increase
your article spinning speed as time goes on.
Some article spinners come with a feature
which will automatically replace some of the words and phrases
in your entire document with a variety of synonyms at the click
of a mouse. If you choose to use this tool, you need to be wary
as not all synonyms will be appropriate. Although applying this
process can seem to save you a lot of time, personally I think
it is more trouble than it’s worth. It tends to cause
an unnatural, stilted spin and by the time you try to fix all
the incorrectly applied synonyms (and you always seem to miss
one), the time it is supposed to save you is lost. I believe
this lazy feature is the number one reason for badly spun articles.
Once you are happy with your spinning efforts,
it’s time to spin, spin and spin again and carefully read
all versions (I recommend at least ten). Remember if you find
any that are stilted and strange, you can be assured others
will as well so adjust your synonyms where necessary. You need
to ensure each and every version you spin flows along nicely
for a comfortable read. Remember to always care about the enjoyment
of your readers.
Never ever send two versions of your spun
article to the same article directory. Each directory with the
appropriate category gets ONE version of your spun article and
that’s it. Again, think of your readers. Reading a similar
article in another directory if you happen to come across it
is one thing but finding one in the same directory is completely
unacceptable. If you get lazy and try this on, your second version
of this article will probably be rejected anyway and it may
even cause your first one to be removed. Even worse, you may
get blacklisted. You never know. Don’t mess with the article
Submit either manually your best spun versions
of your article one by one to your favourite article directories
or to multiple with an article submitter program - I suggest
that has built in spin features compatible
with your spinner program.
