      Not any that work!!

      You see all the good ones cost money to buy. Free ones do not work - period.

      It takes a lot of development to write the program for a spinner and that takes a lot of money.  I use one that costs $47 and it was the best purchase I ever made. It has repaid itself over many times.

        JetSpinner has just been released in Beta and seems pretty good - far better than MASS article creator or any of the other junk out there - its free right now but the upsell is to purchase JetSubmitter (which I would avoid right now as its got a few bugs and needs a bit of work before its ready to go) - as for spinners being junk, as some of the other comments have indicated - I agree to a point BUT - here's the thing.. if you are serious about generating an income from your writing then your unique content should be the focal point of a varied and extensive backlinking structure - keyword targeted etc which means you have to produce a lot of content to give yourself a fighting chance - its a compromise but when you have bills to pay one worth making I think.

    Article spinners are the degradation of a true writer's craft.  Anyone with skill would not use an article spinner.  That's just me though, as I think it is far better to earn money from something that you create in your mind as opposed to something you create in a piece of software.

      Personally, I agree.  The results of article spinners make my teeth hurt. But they do produce results that make money for people - it's probably my loss that my ethics prevent me using them.

        Marisa - I hope it is not unethical to use while marketing your products. It's much unethical to reproduce somebody's work rather than spin your own articles to generate new ones

        ditto to both of you.  a degradation of the English language.

      Yes I agree, but for article marketing how many original written contents can you produce, to support your main article

    When it ceases to be all about making ad $s within the next couple of years... watch the talentless complain that they have nothing to offer the world! hmm

      Much as I hate to say it, but the longer I do this - the less I am convinced that quality will out. After 2 years of not getting what I consider to be extremely well written content read - instead being dominated by garbage from the newspapers and other media with beacoup bux to spend.

      Google, Amazon, Ebay et al do not care one whit how good bad or indifferent your content is - they are here to make as much as possible with as little effort as possible and screw the little guy.

      F*** that s*** - get some spun content and buy some links. sad

      Honestly - it is not possible to rank great content with google in a competitive niche without doing this - they favor what will make them the most income. This is from personal experience.

      It is almost impossible to rank for anything worth any money without cheating.....

      If it is free - it is not worth anything. If you are here to make money and cannot find $100 to spend on software - you are in the wrong business.

        LOL! Mark, great response... almost knocked me off my chair that one..

        Very true, nothing comes free in this world and if you're trying to build a bsuiness online (that's what we're doing isn't it?) then you have to treat it as one and invest in the right machinery.

        UAW is the best I've come across for submission - I know you favour this one also and for good reason - reliabilty/deliverability etc..

        As a spinner though, best on the market by a country mile is Magic Article Re-Writer - don't be fooled by the low price, this one is way beyond its competitors - if you want an affiliate link to it just let me know and I'll be happy to pass mine along.

        Great Mark, I totaly agree that these affiliates may not consider how best your articles are if they cannot make more money from them

        Mark is absolutely right.  If you want to do business online there will be some things you will eventually have to spend money on.

        Autoresponder, hosting, domain names and certain tools like spinners and submitters.  The thing is knowing the difference between some sleazy waste of money ebook and tools that you actually need to run your business.

        Mark, I know you're right, but the trouble is I still know it's cheating!  In my book, just because everyone else is throwing litter in the street, doesn't make it right for me to do it - I have to live with my own conscience.  Which is another reason why I'm not even trying to make a living online any more.

    Maybe I just don't enough about how they work; but based on what I've read, it seems to me it would be just as quick to just re-write an article without having to muck with whatever is involved with using software. 

    If someone isn't concerned with "truly unique" or "really well written" isn't it just as easy to sit down; think, "I'm going to write about hurricanes today," and whip up 10 450-word articles about that one, same, thing?  After one or two articles the writer's pretty familiar with the same old material.  That's what we do when we talk about something we're interested in over and over again with different people - one subject, same ideas, different words.

    To me, the thing that slows someone down is the aiming for ideas, quality, and substance.  If you throw those out the window and don't worry about being "comprehensive" or "thoughtful" it's pretty effortless to just whip up re-hashes of the same quickie article (without being bogged down with any bugs or "issues" with whatever software does).

    @ Neil - by all means send me a link. smile

    I do like UAW - although, I am lucky enough to have a budget to  use content that I have written for me and rarely need to use spun content, but I will take a look.

    @ Lisa - that is another way of doing it. But gets a little old if you have a lot of niches to cover.

  7. Lisa HW profile image79

    Does the software allow for adding/incorporating something that will eliminate the look of "robot writing?  (Short, "dead", "robot-like", sentences?)  (That's not a smart-alec question.  Just wondering for real.)

    what's an article spinner?

    1. oderog profile image44
      oderogposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      A dedicated article software that reproduce article similar to your original content

    Yuck. I can't bring myself to use them, but I do format articles for spinners now for other people as part of my freelance work--if they pay me enough. It's boring but usually I can get more $$$ than I can for a straight article. I have no idea how they turn out but people come back so they must be close enough for jazz. I think those clients just hate the tediousness of doing it themselves.

    Not to be negative, but I don't see how any single person looking to make a buck online can compete in this market, spinners or no spinners. Mark does pretty well but he works his ass off and has to change his game constantly.

    If I wanted to hustle I'd go back to the street. I came here because I like to write. I make what money I can without throwing up and then I move on. I'm not getting rich but I do OK.

    PS--I wonder how long before the damn internet writes its OWN damn internet content without human input?

    Probably not very damn long.

    There's always the possibility that when that happens the work of people who can write better than software can will become more valued (money-wise), the people who can't write as well as software will end up on social-only sites, and all will be a little more right with the world.  smile  (That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.)

      Actually, I see that happening already.  My fees aren't cheap, but my business has picked up in the last few months.

    Just for demonstration purposes, for those unfamiliar with aricle rewriters/spinners, here is a web based one I ran into yesterday

    http://redirect.elementfx.com/articlerewrite.php

  13. Lisa HW profile image79
    Lisa HWposted 8 years ago

    I just went to it.  On the one hand, I can see the "neatness" of it.  On the other, it still seems to me to almost be more work going in, getting rid of the way-off words and whatever else, and cleaning up something; rather than just robot-like re-writing quickie articles on the same subject.  Of course, I entered a long forum post I did earlier, and that was related to relationships.  It came back with word replacements that just didn't relate to the context.  I can see how it would do better with an article on something like PVC piping (or whatever).

    Next question:  Has anyone come up with one that would allow writers to first "establish" the area on which an article is focused?  Based on just that one sample I did, it seems as if there's a way to point it in the direction of "area" it may come up with better selections on interchangeable words.  Based on only that "human-focused" subject of my sample, it occurred to me that the use of the software might call handy attention to words that could be replaced, while I would still have to think up more appropriate words than it offered.

    A spin-off concern:  Doesn't this allow anyone to re-write any article they find online and call it their own?

    1. sunforged profile image76
      sunforgedposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      yes, article rewriters can be used to take any content and call it their own.

      as PRGrundy mentioned, writing for a spinner involves setting the synonyms to be replaced, Im not proficient with the method so i cant explain it well, I prefer to outsource to human beings.

      When the user knows how to properly set up the article to be spun they can create dozens of "unique enough" versions to use in article submissions and get dozens if not hundreds of backlinks

      when i looked more closely..you can see in the instructions"

      "The spun article can make unlimited versions of human readable articles through PAR or similar softwares"

      I think this link is used to make the base article for (PAR) Powe ARticle Rewriter - hence the synonyms are already created and the additional software removes all the off formatting

      ill go pick up PAR or something similar and test it

    Seriously, what is the point of that?  To take any joy out of doing the writing at all?  I've been writing since the age of 12, and didn't go to school those many long years so I could purchase software.

    There are lots of ways to make money.  I think an E-bay store would be much simpler and more profitable than employing an "article spinner."

    Quality is its own reward.

      Perhaps not in money terms, but then job satisfaction is not just about making money - it's about feeling good about how you made it.
