Anyone who reads my blog knows how I treat programs like Spin Rewriter. I personally never recommend them and this review will explain why. There are risks if you don’t know how to use it.
Currently it’s in it’s 8.0 stage with a 9.0 coming out in October. Regardless of which update happens, in my personal opinion, there are certain core issues I see with this software and what it can do to your rankings.
There are ways to use it intelligently and even make it work, I am not going to deny that, but I feel like you’re better off without it.
Spin Rewriter Review:
Creator: Aaron Sustar.
Price: There’s 3 plans,
- $77 a year.
- $497 for lifetime access.
Overview: This is one of the more intelligent programs which rewrites content you put into it’s system and gives you masses of different versions of it.
From what I saw, this program doesn’t “borrow” content from other sources, which already is a good thing, considering that would be plagiarism, but in the end, nothing beats writing your own content, as no matter how intelligent a spinner is, sooner or later it will not be able to create high quality content and this may end up ruining your SEO results.
My rating: 1 out of 10 stars.
This software is NOT a scam, but knowing about SEO, I know how content that is re-spun is treated by Google, it’s a risky way of trying to go about it.
Yes you can create a lot of content quickly, but speed actually ruins quality of the end results in my opinion, and especially in these types of cases, and lack of good quality ruins SEO. Despite every program like this which says otherwise, my experience has shown me that this is usually what happens.
Is there anyway I would recommend this program? Honestly no, I am firmly against these programs to be used for SEO and content creation.
What do I recommend? You have to learn to write your own high quality content and/or teach/hire writers to do the same for you. Yes this takes more work, but it’s the 100% legit way to get good SEO rankings. And if you don’t know about all of that stuff, then…
First, some good things to say about Spin Rewriter:
Let me just say that based on what I’ve seen, Aaron, the creator of it does come off as being genuine. I also didn’t see anything regarding copying content from other people through this program, which if I did, I would immediately say this is a scam, because that’s stealing content.
However, because that doesn’t seem to be the case here, I am knocking that con out of this review because it doesn’t apply to this program. That’s about it on the positive things…
3 reasons I am not recommending Spin Rewriter:
At it’s very core, the very process of taking content, even if it’s your own and using a program like this for instance to rearrange and change the words will inevitably lead to that not being of the same high quality content (it will be worse).
Now I did see examples of this program in action, which Aaron was kind enough to show in his sales video and yes, the examples provided did appear to show that this program does make another version of the content you put into it, readable.
But the problem is that as you keep using this program to continue to recreate the same content, inevitably, it will become low quality. You can only recreate the same content so many ways until it starts to worsen in readability/quality.
Let’s say I take a simple sentence and then use this type of program to recreate it 10, 20 or even a 100 times (this program is said to recreate up to 1,000 variations).
That sentence has only a few variations of it which will make sense when reading, while the others just won’t have the same context, the same grammar and the same high quality content it.
One can make the argument that you can “sift” through the variations you get from this program and pick out the good ones, but then what? Are you going to publish multiple articles talking about the same thing and targeting the same keyword? It just won’t rank as high. Wondering why? Here’s the next reason:
If your goal is to crank out a lot of content with this type of program and get that content ranked on Google, then you may want to think twice because I have said in previous reviews of programs like these and even cited Google themselves and their position on it. Here is that link again.
Their position is simple: Don’t do this.
Why would you want to directly go against what Google is suggesting you do to get good SEO results? Is it because you think these programs can trick Google?
Well if that’s the case, then ask the MILLIONS of bloggers and content “creators” who have had their sites penalized over the years by Google updates, consistently, because they tried to trick Google.
I’ve suffered with at least 2 sites that I know off because I tried some black hat things in the past. I learned NOT to try and trick Google.
Numbers of the amount of users who use this program or the amount of times you can have content recreated doesn’t matter, again it all comes down to quality and an article spinner, 99% of the time CANNOT make better content than you can on your own, in it’s originality.
There’s many spinner programs like there, one which I recently reviewed called Article Forge. That one is popular, but it doesn’t change how ALL these programs have the same core problems I mentioned…
There’s that 1% chance that perhaps it accidentally uses the right words, but believe me, that’s a gamble that isn’t worth it.
And despite the fact (or supposedly) that over 100,000 people have been using Spin Rewriter for years, that doesn’t matter. I know countless people who still preach about risky ways to do SEO. It doesn’t matter how many preach it, if it goes against the rules of SEO, which I cited in reason 2, then who cares how many people use it?
Final Rating: Spin Rewriter (8.0 currently).
1 out of 10 stars. It doesn’t matter what this program “evolves to”. It could be 9.0, 10.0, whatever, as long as the core problems with what using these programs does for SEO, it’ll never get my recommendation and I’ve referenced enough proof to explain my position.
I’m not just saying this from an unsubstantiated opinion, there’s GOOD reasons why you DON’T want to use these things. It’s all up to you though in the end…
My final thoughts:
I know how hard it is to write your own content and I know how much effort it takes in that regard to get your site ranked high, and I also know the temptation there is in using these programs to cut corners with all of that, but trust me, it is well worth doing the former thing compared to investing money in spinners and building an online business off that where the risk of losing ALL of that progress in a snap.
I know what it’s like to put in time, effort and try to cut corners with SEO and use black hat tools, then lose everything. After it happened 2 times for me, after which I decided, never again and that’s my warning to you folks.
Believe me, you are more than capable of constructing your own, unique and high quality content with practice at a fast pace. If you can text people, write emails and have at least written one long blog post/article on a website, then you’re more than cut out for this type of work. And if not, you can practice and get there.
It takes repetition and practice, but if you train your mind and hands to write consistently, it will get easier. And if you add writing about something like you like, then that is another shortcut to that outcome.
I know about that outcome because I live it. It is why today, I make a living online. I took the time to build my business and it became easier to write everything I put out on this site and every other I own.
You can reach this same point too and believe me, when you do, you won’t have to bite your nails or be paranoid that at any moment, Google can penalize your website.
