Article marketing is one of the best ways to be successful in internet marketing today. The idea is to write short articles about topics related to the products that you are promoting. The articles are not directly sales pieces but rather informational content which is useful to readers. However, within these articles you place links to your websites which are promoting products. You then submit these articles to article sites who host the articles where web search engines find them and the links contained in them and they then get included in the search sites such a Google. Moreover, other websites come to these article sites for content for their webpages either to directly place on their websites or to link to the articles. However, to use the articles these websites must agree to keep the links included. This gives your links even more places to be found by search engines as well as the ordinary readers of those websites. All of this gets your links out there in many ways.
There are some complications with this method of marketing. The central one being time. It takes lot of time to write articles and get them submitted to the various article sites. So of course other internet marketers have looked to solve these issues by creating software. One specific issue is that search engines, especially Google, punish duplicate content. Consequently, you do not want to submit the same article to hundreds of sites. The solution is to create multiple versions of your articles and then submit the various versions to different article depositories or blogs. Creating these various versions is called
"spinning" your article. However, writing the original articles took long enough, even if you were using
article writing software (which you should be). See my review of article writing software. Writing numerous versions requires an even larger time commitment. So, internet marketers have developed article spinning software to help with this process.
Article Spinning Software
Article spinning software are article re-writer programs which enables the development of numerous unique articles or blog posts working from a single article. Article spinning software certainly helps the situation. You may not know precisely what article spinning software is and what ways it functions. The goal is to acquire many reliable backlinks so that your website(s) gets far better page rankings on search engines. This will get prospective visitors to your web pages, providing a good chance to convert leads into product sales. The very best article spinning software is going to do lots of things to supercharge sales and revenue for your internet business. Article spinner technology can help achieve this goal. Consequently, article rewriting applications are one of the easiest methods to serve your article marketing. So at this point you should easily envision how useful article spinning software could be, particularly if it features a substantial database or thesaurus. Article spinning software is computer software which can help turn one article into hundreds in a fraction of the time than if you would do it yourself. In fact they claim to do so in only minutes. I find such claims to be deceptive. If you just let the software do the work, the multiple articles resulting, while not gibberish, are often not very readable and contain many awkward phrases. They are an essential tool, but in reality they take a lot of hand-holding as they insert the various synonyms into the articles from which the various versions are created. There is certainly only so much an article spinning software package is capable of doing. Article spinners can become the worst tool in your search engine optimization toolbox if you do not use them properly and carefully.
If you do any research, especially on the message boards, you will find distinct and contrasting viewpoints about article spinning software. Consequently, let me give you an evaluation of some article spinning software packages on the market. You want to select an article spinning application that gives additional options in re-writing your content in addition to just swapping words and phrases with synonyms.
Quick Article Spinner
When I returned to making article marketing a major part of my internet marketing efforts, I rushed out and bought the entire package from Quick Article Software. This included Quick Article Pro, Quick Article Submitter, Review Writer and most applicable to our discussion here Quick Article Spinner. The entire package set me back $114.95. Quick Article Spinner runs $49.99 if purchased separately. To be honest I have been disappointed with all of the software in the package and ended up replacing all of it. Moreover, it was Quick Article Submitter that most disappointed me. Quick Article Spinner has a rather user friendly interface. It boasts of a large library of synonyms to create current and distinctive content. It allows for users to incorporate their own alternatives into the synonym database. Like all computer software, even the best article spinner can crash and burn. Unfortunately, in my experience Quick Article Spinner did that a lot. I could not get it to function well. When pushing the "Spin" button I found that it took forever, sometimes more than an hour, to process, and then it usually just crashed instead of returning results. Perhaps I did something wrong and no doubt others have had better experiences with it. However, time is money and I did not feel Quick Article Software was worth anymore of my time. So I was on to find something better.
Magic Article Rewriter
I found it with Magic Article Rewriter which is yet another one of several more recent, computerized, article rewriters (spinners) which was unveiled in April, 2009. It was developed by Alexander Krulik. It is a good article spinner. Sorry Mac users but Magic Article Rewriter only works for Windows systems. It is moderately priced at $47. Now Magic Article Rewriter claims to be able to rewrite your articles instantly and technically it can. However, not with the results that satisfies me. Like I mentioned above when talking about article spinner technology in general, I find that Magic Article Spinner still takes a lot of babysitting and much more time (than instantaneous) to turn out quality results. Magic Article Rewriter is menu-driven; it automatically highlights phrases and words that may be swapped out and intuitively identifies a list of possible alternatives. It has a strong collection of synonyms and you can add your own as well. It also provides the capacity to spin complete sentences something that many other products on the market lack. Moreover, Magic Article Rewriter can be packaged together with Magic Submitter (which is one of the most amazing pieces of software that I have ever used) for $80. Remember submitting articles is extremely time consuming as well. Be sure to read review of article submitter software.
While Magic Article Rewriter is very good, I was never quite satisfied with it. Such criticism does not apply to its partner Magic Submitter which is just amazing. Magic Article Rewriter was a bit clunky to use and I was never satisfied with the spin results. So I was off to find something better.
The Best Spinner
My next stop was with The Best Spinner which is one of Jon Leger's products. He produces high quality product and I have used many and still use several. The Best Spinner costs $77 a year (well worth the cost). The Best Spinner is much more friendly to use than Magic Article Writer. Moreover, the results were as good, if not better. The Best Spinner is really excellent for hand spinning in order to submit articles to multiple article directories. This is where you go through your article word-by-word and select the synonyms that will replace that word. This approach is by far the best way to make sure that all the spins are highly readable and will not get rejected by article directories. I may well continue to purchase The Best Spinner just for this purpose. The product has excellent training videos to teach you to use it effectively. However there were two things I dislike about The Best Spinner. The first is Jon Legers support center for all of his products. While I should probably say that I am seldom satisfied with product support provided for most products, I had repeated bad experience with Leger’s support on several of his products. Further, I was not satisfied with the automatic spinning that The Best Spinner does. I use a spinner this way when I have a private label article that I want to spin and then place on one of my websites. I know that others also have rights to the same article and I do not want to get penalized for duplicate content on my website. So I need to spin the article to avoid this. When I did this with The Best Spinner the results were not satisfactory. I found that I almost always had to rewrite the spun article because it did not make sense. That pretty much defeats the purpose of a spinner. So I was on the lookout for something better.
I next discovered and tried Spin Rewriter which was supposed to be different. This web-based system, costs about the same as The Best Spinner. Unfortunately, I did not see any improvement and perhaps my automatic spins were worse. However, there is an updated version which has shown more promise. Nevertheless, I still had not found what I was looking for.
I recently found what I was looking for – a truly superstar spinning software that creates human quality readable automatically spun articles. It is a case of, you get what you pay for. This great product is WordAi. The Ai stands for "artificial intelligence" and yes this program spins like it has the capability. WordAi seems to not only understand the meaning of words but how words work in a sentence or in other words how words interacts with other words. Of course that is what we human writers do, but it is exactly what is missing from all the other spinners I have tried especially when trying to do automatic spinning. WordAi automatically rewrites entire sentences and even paragraphs. It makes sure that the search engines do not see your content as duplicate while the content still remains readable. It is web-based program but can be incorporated into other programs. Word Ai is on a monthly fee basis and there are two plan level. The standard plan costs $19.95 a month and produces high quality content; however, it will sometimes look spun to a human reader. I would recommend it to those who are staring to do article marketing and using private label content for that or to post on your own websites. However, this was still not what I wanted, but I found it in what I think is the gold standard for spinning software, WordAi’s Turing Plan. It produces automatically spun content that looks human written.
This option is a bit pricy at $49.95 a month. However, if you are doing significant spinning (and you need to be it you are going to be successful) you will eventually want to move up to this level. I find my $50 a month easily worth the money.
Content is king. In order to be noticed by the search engines you must post new content regularly. If you have multiple websites that is almost impossible to do completely through your own writing (though you need to be doing that as well); consequently, you are going to use private label content and you must spin that content to not be hurt with duplicate content. The same is true for article marketing. For each article you produce you want to be able to post it to multiple article directories. So you need to spin your content. So go get the best, WordAi.
