    Does automatic article writer and article generator work? Have you tried using it for your own content? Where can you find the best free full-version software?

      I am not actually looking to find one for myself. This is just quite intriguing how things work the way software company owners of these products seem to promise.

      Thanks anyway for sharing your thoughts :-)

        oh yes... why not spin those articles!  Hubpages love good ole spammy links - it really helps promote that loving feeling that HP has with Google.  lol

        Be careful my dear or you might find yourself a 73!!!!

    What they do is keep track of LSI words list, Synonym word list and  relate to the words in the sentence. Once the software gets hold of many LSI words, it auto suggests LSI words when you type.

    Basically the software keeps synonyms in its index and displays it..

    From what I've seen, the only way they can work well (at least with the free ones) is if the user has a good command of the English language and is willing to take the time to go over the new article, look for bad grammar and out-and-out ridiculous wording they often come up up with.  If the article is a short article some people will find it's just as easy to whip up new short articles about the same thing.  Others are happy enough to edit the spun stuff instead.  They can/do work for some people and some kinds of articles (a "standard web article", for example, as opposed to "more complex" writing.  At best, if someone feeds a "robot" a brief, simple, article he'll get back writing that's obviously robot-writing.  Other than "best", he'll get back absurd wording that needs so much fixing it isn't worth the trouble.

    The big thing you'll see on here are people who don't know English well (whether they're non-Americans or just Americans who didn't learn their grammar), think they're going to spin stuff (their own or someone else's), and not recognize how goofy the whole mess looks after spinning.  Then they publish it and wait for their millions of dollars and earnings to come in.   lol  I, personally, haven't yet met a free one that I'd be bothered with.  To me, if I'm dealing with a quickie web article it would be just as easy, and less aggravating, to whip up a bunch of quickie articles about the same thing.  There are people who do web-writing all the time who are willing to pay for a better spinner, and who has a system for using them.

    Anyone interested in how the free ones work ought to just a run a few articles on them and see what they get.  There's nothing wrong with using a spinner if it works.  There's a lot wrong with posting some of the crap that comes out of the free ones much of the time, and calling it a "Hub".   smile

      Are you saying that non-Americans don't know English well...? big_smile

      Fully agree with you about spinners, though, Lisa - spinners cannot reproduce the voice and flow that make writing worth reading.

      Personally, I detest them. smile

        Good point, sufidreamer.  "non-Americans" was a careless choice of words.  I should mention that I know lots of non-Americans have an excellent command of English (including lots of people for whom English is not even their first language).  Can I be excused for that careless "oopsie" if I claim that "non-Americans" was actually something a forum-post spinner did to my original (and more appropriate, of course) choice of words...     hmm

    Without question article spinners work. For that extra bit of originalty, translate the spun article into Russian then Spanish then back to English. Unique content guaranteed every time!

      OR...   print your article, run the paper page through a food processor, and tape the shreds back together in a way that makes it look sort of like it used to - only a mess  smile

    If by "work" you mean "give Norah and Maddie a good laugh at the utter nonsense of your Hubs before they ban you" then yes, they work. wink

    From my experience, it takes longer to sort out the mess than it  takes to write the article from scratch. For that reason I have given up on spinning and automatic content generation.

    I am not a fan of spinners, because I do not think they can make a good article.  I can write articles fast enough that are original that are so much better.
