Since I joined HP several weeks ago, I have noticed the term "spun" used quite often in reference to Hubs.
Can someone please explain what this means? Did I miss something in the TOS?
Thanks in advance
Writer's Dog, you'll definitely know one when you see one - they're software written articles, so they make little sense. A spun article will look something like this:
"When you imagine or pretend to carry a purse of brilliance and it will be far or beyond your reckoning."
If you hub-hop, you'll come across one or two during your travels. Usually by new accounts.
Are these new accounts typically what people call sackbots? Not gonna lie, I've had a bit of trouble wrapping my head around that term.
Or one could be like this post I made up.
Original: - The sky is blue and the beautiful ocean reflects this brilliance and seems blue as well.
Spun (by me no software just an example for u )
The sky is green and the gorgeous river scatters this gorgeousness and seems red as well.
Here's a paragraph I just found on a newly published hub about spring fashions:
(Headline:) Fancy retro fairy reappear
(paragraph:) If the early autumn collection is a barrier of temperament rendering of the brand, early spring is the clutch shot of increasing the intimacy. Especially to the brands which are seeking for positioning of consumers, the early spring's warm concern heralded the coming of passionate carnival, attracting the head-turning as many as possible by its gorgeous fancy.
LOL, I know spun content is a big no-no, but I must admit I get a kick out of reading it sometimes. Maybe the spinners' new slogan can be "Spun is Fun."
Got it! Thanks everyone for not only answering my query, but giving me a much needed laugh as well
I am not always sure if something is spun or is just awful English from a writer who doesn't know the language well. I have come across people whose first language is English but what they type sounds spun too so I can't always be sure.

I'm looking for a sentence or two that are obviously spun from an article spinner program. I've been told they are easy to pick out, but want a few solid examples please.

As I read and try to learn about the internet, I keep running across people talking about content spinners. Isn't the content that they create considered duplicate content? Or not? Does anyone use them for any other applications? Are there good applications for them? I'm curious on what everyone...

Have hubpages devised a way to filter spun hubs?Hubs which seem to have been to be spun from that in their database.

I've seen this expression quite often, what is a "spun Hub?"

I found bastardized versions of 4 of my hubs at "The Healthy Food Tips".Two of the hubs I had unpublished (but not deleted) because of minimal traffic, with plans to re-post in a blogger blog. Those two had back stories of my family, which made it especially annoying to find them...

I've been hopping some hubs this morning. I came across a few excellent ones and a few that sheer perturbed me.In at least 3 of them, the English was so terrible and the word choice so indecipherable that I highly suspect it to be stolen and spun content. But what do I know?I looked up one hub via...
