Crucial Reasons Why You Should Never Use Spinners To Spread Your Content

by on January 17, 2012 · 23 comments

in Article Content

I am still amazed when I am asked the questions what is the best article spinner?  However, I know the reason or reasons why so many people are tempted to use automation when they are writing to promote either their site or products.  The number one reason is that they want to spread as much content as possible in as less time as possible, but is that really what will happen using article spinners?

Are you really going to spread your content far and wide because you are using an article spinner?

The real answer to this question might shock you, but I think that by now you really need to know the truth.  Knowing this will save you time and even money that you are wasting for such services. Most of all, it will help your future rankings on Google.

What You Need To Know About Spun Content

What you need to really understand once and for all is that spun content cannot and will not ever be quality content.  The reason for this is that your spun content can be called quality content only ONCE.  I don’t care how good your spinning robot is at finding synonyms to a word, but that’s all those spinners do; replace a word with a synonym of that word.

For example, it doesn’t matter if you are saying “the lost hat was found on the road” or “the missing hat was retrieved on the high way” or even “the once gone baseball cap was finally spotted on the side of the old country trail”.  You are still talking about a lost hat that was found on a road, don’t you?

This is exactly what happens with spun content. It could be the best valuable content you have ever written, but what it really is once it’s been spun a few times, even if it was spun by hand, is just a spun valuable content that has no more value as such.  As a matter of fact, all you would have done is spoil your once quality unique content by spinning it.

Your original article is not unique and original anymore, it’s been spun around so many times, it’s lost all its originality – all in all, its very value.

What Does ROI Has To Do With Fresh New Content

For the ones who don’t know it yet, ROI goes for return on investment.  For every step that you take online you want to have the best ROI possible.  When you are using an article spinner, you are still using your valuable time (investment) to be able to set up your spinner application with all the synonym words and other details that you need to put in in order to spin your article.

Then, when you’re done you may feel like you have invested your time wisely and will get a good ROI (return on your invested time) because your content will be sent to dozens to hundreds of sites which will be giving you a lot of exposure and tons of back-links, right?

Well, I am sorry to tell you that it’s not the case!  If you really thought that way, you couldn’t be more wrong.  Let me explain you why.

Why Your Spun Articles Will Never Rank On Google

Many internet marketers and bloggers have written about how Google cares only about unique content these days.  The days when you still had a slight chance to fool Google algorithm with low quality content are over.  As I mentioned above, even if you had a very high quality article to start with, it’s no quality anymore even after one spin.  In some cases, it could even be seen as duplicate content by Google even if words have been switch around.  If this wasn’t bad enough, there is more…

The multiple sites that your spinner sends your articles to are sites that are not even ranked on Google at all.  That’s right! None of those sites would ever appear as a result of a Google search; therefore, your content on such sites will never appear either.  The only way you could ever find your content there is by entering the URL of the site in your browser and then find your article on that site.  Of course,that’s not the purpose of blasting your content, is it?

Well, worst case scenario, I am still getting the back-links you may say!  Wrong again!  Back-links on such thin content sites don’t even make any difference in your ranking whatsoever.  None!

Now, because of all the reasons I’ve mentioned above, no human eyes ever set sight on such sites.  In other words, there is no human pass through traffic that you could benefit from either.

Get Real ROI For Your Content

Do you want to get REAL return on investment (ROI) for everything you write online?  If you do, there is no secret; you need to spend the time writing real articles every time.  I know it might seem that it’s a lot to write, but it’s really not, because your site will rank better and your content will show much more on search results if you spend the time writing only 10 articles that are 100% unique than if you have a hundred of spun garbage articles.

Harsh reality? Yes, it might be harsh reality for some, but hey, it’s time that you wake up to such reality and stop wasting your energy, time, money and false hope on spun content that is not going to help your site in any way.  When you spend time writing unique and original content you are getting real ROI for your content.

I absolutely agree. When you spin an article, you lose the freshness. Not only that, but it is just as easy, and much more fun to write a brand new article. Spinning is work and takes time. Many people don’t take that into account. Also, your online reputation and authority is at stake. Who, in their right mind, would be willing to compromise that?

Yes, Joan I totally agree with you, don’t only duplicate content is not going to help your reputation but, it’s such a bore :) And what is more is that it takes time. Who wants that? For the life of me I do not know :) but still some people are looking for the BEST spinner out there!

Thanks for reiterating something that many of us know.
For the rest of the world, this needs to be said over and over.
As long as you don’t spin it.

Hi Labman,

Yes, it may seems that a lot of us know that, but even more still don’t. Just by looking at the questions on the WA forum :) and that doesn’t even include how many times I am asked that through personal emails :)

The thought of spinning articles excited me at first so I bought a spinning software. Selecting synonyms and writing the paragraphs seemed great to me but in the end I still had to correct the errors manually so it consumed a lot of time. I don’t like the idea of correcting the spun articles again and I don’t feel that the spun articles are so unique either.

When I first got really serious about doing article marketing I kept hearing about spinning your articles everywhere I turned. So I finally broke down and purchased a spinning software from someone I trusted.

I was just never happy with the results because I could have rewritten it better myself which is what I ended up doing anyway. Then I found it way too time consuming so I just wrote a few articles on the same subject and submitted them to a few directories and that was it. I had a lot of really good luck with article marketing though so obviously the way I was doing it worked just fine.

Your articles should always be unique so spinning really isn’t the way to go if you want to have success in this area. Apparently Google finally figured this out too. Thank goodness.

Yes, Adrienne. To this day, for the life of me, I do not understand why people want to pay for an article spinner. Article spinners are not a magic pill for articles. You have to verify everything and fix all the problems, and there are a lot of them with spinners. Like this doesn’t take time right?

I am glad you are confirming what I have been thinking the whole time and wrote about very clearly this time :)

I hate spinners and I don’t know why the hell people are using such spinners. It is totally a wastage of time as well as money. These article spinners will not give a quality content, so it is better to avoid using it. These days whether it is search engines or normal visitors, they want quality and informative content and only real human beings can write a quality content for its users and search engines.

Thank for that Manish, yet, believe it or not I posted a forum post with the link of this blog on it (it’s a paid forum, so I can’t give you the link) where I have some people still swearing that they are using the best spinners and don’t have any problem with it. Of course, I find this very hard to believe.

So true. Spun articles are not considered as a good one because the freshness of the content has been gone and it was replaced into a bad one. One of the reasons that some of the article marketers used a spinner because they want to save time and effort from writing. By the way Sylvianne thanks for the following head ups and I truly learn a lot!

Hi Nicholle,

Yes, article marketers are using spinners for a quick fix, but really, that brings the question… is this the best value for the read? Of course, not :)

Hi Sylviane,

I once bought a package that would spin articles and submit them to the article directories. I tried it a couple of times but was never happy with the quality of the spun articles.

I didn’t submit any of the spun articles only the originals and found that the software didn’t even submit them to all that it should have.

Needless to say I got a refund and have never spun anything since. I found them hard to read and quiet often they never made sense, and I was the one that wrote the article so if I couldn’t make sense of how could I put my name to it and expect others to enjoy it.

Spinning is for washing machines not our content :lol:

Speak soon Sylviane,
Barry

ahahah, I love that… spinning is for washing machines, not content! I’ve got to use that quote again in the future.

So many people are saying the same thing you’re saying here, Barry. Spinning doesn’t work because the article sound ridiculous, makes no sens, you have to do it all over again, etc…

It really a waste of time and money. I would never waste my money in a spinner, ever again!

Hi Sylviane, can I ask what the social share buttons are that you’re using here please. They’re impressive and I’d like to start using them myself ;)

Yes Barry, not a problem. If you go to that link you’ll find a huge collection of free icons

What I did is download the ones I liked and put each picture on photobucket or any picture hosting you may be using, and then get the html code for each of the ones I wanted. Then incorporated the link of each media to each one of them.

As I mentioned, Adrienne, helped me with the whole html coding that allows them to look nicely organize the way they do.

Hi Sylviane.
I still have an article spinner. It sits on my desktop gathering dust.
Although it’s pretty good software, it’s really time consuming to spin articles to a high percentage of uniqueness.
I found myself submitting maually and even then I was checking and amending each individual article.
I decided it was probably just as quick to write new ones. Like you say, each new article is fresh. Trouble is, the articles just don’t have the same link value any more. That in turn seems to have hit traffic levels. I tend to use other methods to drive traffic and get links now.

Hi Steve,

I can see that you have come to the same conclusion I have with article spinners. For people who are saying that it saves them time, I’d say well, show me how? In my book it doesn’t. I agree with you 100%.

When you write your own articles at least you have 100% fresh content.

I also agree that articles have not as much link value as they used to. You are right here too, Steve.

Thanks for passing by and hope you’ll come back :)

Hi Sylviane, I am curious to know what your current thoughts are on article submitters today. I know that you had before used and promoted the use of Unique Article Wizard, and/or SEO Link Vine. Do these fall into the spinner category? No one is mentioning the names of the software to avoid. What’s the sense of using this submitter software if what you\’re submitting must be fresh every time anyway?Thanks for all your help. It’s kind of you to be so accessible for everyone.

20 Sylviane Nuccio February 12, 2012 at 1:32 PM

Hi John,

You’re right, I have used and promoted Article Wizard in the past, because I thought if I had to use a spinner doing the spin manually was at least giving me some control (I was rewriting one article two more times) then submitted it and them and they were taking care of the rest.

However, over time I came to the realization that my articles were send to very low class blogs and article directories. Such low class sites don’t even rank on Google, they are NEVER seen by humans, really. Totally pointless, because it doesn’t help your site to rank better either. So, I dropped it.

I think that article submitters are the same useless tools are spinners.

Hope I answered your question, John.

Thanks for passing by and hope to see you again soon :)

Hey Sylviane,

I agree with you :)

I hate article spinners too. What is the use of spinning your article, anyways? Like you mentioned, there are no real benefits to using article spinners. Instead of spending 1-2 hours on spinning 10-15 of your articles, you could spend that much time on writing one blog post that is going to make a difference.

Thanks for the awesome post,

I hope that this post helps a lot of people to open their eyes up and stop using Article spinners.

Hi Jeevan,

I am glad when I see people like you “hating” article spinners :) On the other hand it really beats me when I see people who say that they like and use spinners while at the same time admiting that it’s time consuming. Please, use that time writing good stuff, not recycling your article over and over until it has completely lost all it’s value.

I think they will learn their lesson over time – when they fail to “gain attention” or even maintain their existing traffic.

Another trend that I am seeing now is many established bloggers are talking about the same thing – Again! They aren’t really using Article spinners – they are just rehashing the information.

Of course, this can be good and bad:

The bad:

As I told you in my previous comment [on your post about guest posting - is it worth it], popular bloggers are becoming less popular to upcoming bloggers – bloggers who aren’t established, but aren’t newbie either (I hope I got the grammar right). I would attribute that phenomenon to this – established blogger rehashing the information. And, on the other side,

The good:

Imagine that you are an professional blogger (not that you are not, Sylviane). Now, I think your audience is more likely to be newbie bloggers than any others (And it is more likely to be true). When New bloggers search for the term blogging, they are most likely to come upon your site than an upcoming blog). You are writing for them – so the post is basically useful.
