Article Spinner

CNET Editors' review

"Raquel Dawson, 17, of Oklahoma Municipality was walking to touch in worrying sequence Weekday when she patterned a mate stranded in a car as a ascending river swamped a street." Is this the kind of "quality and original content" you want for your Web site? If so, Article Spinner is the program for you.

This is, frankly, one of the most bizarre--and useless--programs we've come across. Its purpose is pretty shady to begin with; it starts with the premise that Web site owners shouldn't put any effort or money into creating content for their sites, but instead should just rewrite existing content slightly, and call it something new. This rewriting--or "spinning"--is what Article Spinner does. We copied an article from a popular news Web site, pasted it into Article Spinner, and the program replaced a bunch of words, allegedly creating a new article. The only problem with this is that the word substitutions rarely made any sense, as the first sentence of this review will attest. Article Spinner does allow users to edit the synonyms it uses, but we can't see any way that this program could really effectively do what it says it will. Although the program creates something that sort of resembles new content, what it really does is poorly duplicate content that already exists. And we can probably all agree that there's enough nonsensical, useless content on the Internet.

Article Spinner has a link to an online Support page, but there's no actual information about it there. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Article Spinner 4.0. The trial version is limited to 14 days.

    "You guys have NO idea what this is for"

    February 22, 2012  |   By Georg321

    Version: Article Spinner 4.0

    Pros

    A tool which helps rewriting articles and web content

    Cons

    You still need to write yourself

    Summary

    I am using spinner software for quite some time already, in fact i am providing a "article spinning service". 95% of the people have not the slightest idea what those programs are used for. Such "spun" article's main purpose is for SEo (search engine optimization) and link building to distribute a larger amount of articles which is "unique". No serious webmaster would put a spun article on his main website. Secondly, no one forces you to use such software and use it in "auto-spin" mode and expect a readable article from it. NO SOFTWARE can understand the facettes of language and produce a "legit", readable article simply from auto-spinning. But this is how many people use those programs, they think they can magically produce a "new" and readable article.

    In fact, such software should be used as tools only where you can rewrite (or "spin") an existing article manually, that is...alternate sentences and alternate word synonyms using a good thesaurus. Such work is done manually. If the software is used this way, a quality spun article can in fact yield 1000s of very readable and "unique" articles which can be used for link building purposes.

    I personally did not use THIS particular software (there is other spinner software out there)...but i just wanted to clear things up before people come in and "review" something and don't have an idea how to use them properly or what purpose they hane.

    "Junk junk and more junk"

    November 12, 2010  |   By katoman43

    Version: Article Spinner 4.0

    Pros

    Its better than a vice grip on my nuts.

    Cons

    As I think about the cons, I'm think about getting those vice grips.

    Summary

    Don;t waste time with the free trial, here's a sample you be the judge.
    Original Text: Aside from the obvious that what a child ingests is the responsibility of the parent; aside from the fact that a private company has the freedom to sell any product it chooses to and consumers are free to not purchase those products, what moral right does the government ? local, state, or national ? have to legislate the contents of a Happy Meal?

    Spun Text: Away from the visible that what a adolescent ingests is teh accountability about the agent; adrift the absolute fact that a secret entity has the arrogance against abalienate a account I chooses against and consumers are abandoned against not achieve those products, what Christian Bill of Rights does the Geopolitik Amazon Babylonian splendor, achievement all-comprehending absorb against authorize the acknowledgments about a propos C ration?

    I think a monkey could have chosen better words. But, this is exactly what you get with this stupid software. Who wasted their time developing this junk... I wonder?

    Updated on Sep 20, 2010

    Surf dog Ricochet was trained to be a service dog, but her penchant for chasing birds prevented her from successfully completing her training. Instead of giving up on her, her trainers quickly realized that Ricochet could help the disabled in a different and totally unique way - by becoming a "SURFace" dog. After surfing tandem with quadriplegic surfer Patrick Ivison, Ricochet now uses her surfing skills to fundraise for charitable causes. Watch this amazing video to learn her full story and to see her in action.
    What did you think of Ricochet's story? What lessons did you learn from this video? After watching the video be sure to share your comments below, and feel free to pass this video on to friends and family.
