Someone hired a freelance writer to write a set of articles. Unfortunately, this webmaster was unwilling to pay. The negotiated price was 50 cents for every 100 words. The ghostwriter used an auto article spinner to generate a set of articles. One of the article was about Microsoft vs Apple. Look at the following two paragraphs: "Las Mac are so easy use my nephew 6 years request my borrowed computer therefore easier than his mom. My neighbor the architect me borrows therefore yours got infected. My students ask me bring my lap to class therefore best seen presentations and tasks must submit. The ultimate test wine when my mom 70s, approached ask give him computer classes for Eighteenth modified. – That you so explained thousand times – le told myself recalling whenever wondered same and again. I suggested who invested in one mac. Al first refused for Price but when lit my laptop and at first explanation herself could everything. Tres hours after told me want a mac !!!!. Realized Apple has capacity make independent. Very versatile manageable and best of everything is not infected virus." I think the saying that you get what you pay for is very true here. Have you seen ridiculous result generated by an automatic article spinner?

HEHEHE. Someone from ac told me my article was used on a website. Went to the address and it was an article spin off. It made no sense and looked horrible. That was a reflection of the website and whoever chose to post it. I wasn't going to say my article was plagerized because I couldn't even tell what their article was about.

haha Mommaj, I cannot imagine how your series of articles on wedding will look like after going through the auto article spinner. Let me see. Those fall wedding series must be badly affected. Do they become "break bones" wedding? or Slippery wedding? I think those words can substitute for Fall oh! What about the Spring wedding series? Spring becomes "jumping up and down"? I think it must be very interesting to have an article telling people to jump up and down for wedding.

I have no idea what an article spinner is but the example you posted explains a lot of the strange articles I have seen posted online.

Perhaps I should look into manual article spinning. (I think the auto spinner would drive me nuts!) I just revamped and expanded some movie reviews I had done on Ciao to make full articles out of them for Helium. I think I would be willing to spin one article into a batch of articles that a webmaster could use providing the keywords were for topics I am familiar with. I would not want to spend a lot of time doing research. Do you have a favorite article spinner?

LOL, I guess I manually spin my own articles and sentences all the time with my computer's thesaurus feature. I simply highlight the word and hit the shift key and the F7 key at the same time. I can highlight the word with a keyboard shortcut (shift+ctrl+one of the arrow keys) whenever I don't want to repeat a word too soon in a paragraph to avoid redundant sentences. I suppose if you had to spin an article several times and do it quickly an article spinner might make things easier.

Hi Canellita, the best about manual article spinner is that it can create 10 to 20 versions of your articles. Then you can paste the articles to different places to generate income, plus linkback to the original article. Most bloggers write a good post for their blog. Then summarize the lengthy blog post to a shorter version, eg 250 words before spinning it into twenty unique articles. They give away the copyrights to the articles, so that others can download the content to their websites, and link to the original blog. That is the way to get traffic.

I was assigned to write an article on a subject once and was instructed to use one of those article spinners--I would write the first one and spin 9 others. The results were so awful that I ended up writing the other 9 myself. Why would anyone use such a device when it produces such an inferior product?! That probably explains a lot of articles I see that appear similar to that one.

Hi Dragon54u, actually article spinner works if you use the manual one. For example, I want to spin this sentence into 9 possible ways. "The first way to lose weight is to drink a lot of water." I can change a few words in the sentence. "way" change to "method/tip/approach", "to lose weight" change into "to lose fats/for dieting/for weight loss", and "a lot of" becomes "plenty of/sufficient/enough" The manual article spinner will spin that sentence with your chosen words. 1. The first method for weight loss is to drink sufficient water. 2. The first tip for dieting is to drink enough water. 3. The first method to lose fats is to drink plenty of water. 4. The first approach to lose fats is to drink a lot of water. I tried some free manual spinners, and the result is quite good. Since i can control the usage of the words, it will not appear as so terrible.

I guess you can't post a link here but I will search for one. It could be very useful to me as many times a client wants several articles on the same subject. I'd have to add some original content but a good spinner would really save me time! Thanks for that suggestion!

Hi Dragon, I can give you the name of the manual article spinner, and you can search for it. it's Jetspinner, you will definitely find it. There is one key from your keyboard you must learn to use in the article spinner. The key is | , just above the Enter key, you will see \, use Shift key to get that | When you want to change a word, eg "change" to change|alter, you use | to separate the words. You may not know that the spun articles are not for reader's to read, but that is the fact. The webmaster do not even need extremely good articles, since they are going to submit them to different directories. when they have ten articles, they will submit to ten different places, or even a hundred websites. They will put the link of their websites, so that the search engines can see a hundred incoming links to their websites. That is the way to increase the popularity of the websites.

You pay peanuts, you get monkeys... I would not pay either. It's ridiculous that these people are really spoiling the market. But I guess, if you are a professional writer, then continue to build a good reputation by writing original pieces. There is nothing wrong with getting ideas from the net, but please write something of your own. Some of my works get plagiarised as well. Others pick them up and call it their own or post it on their websites/blogs. I used to get terribly upset about this, but publishing online has that other problem we have to deal with. i can't monitor every single piece I write. I just can't. And you know what? I didn't even finish reading the two paragraphs you highlighted. It was revolting after I read the first line

Hi SydneyHazelton, many ghostwriters are willing to write at the rate of $1 per 100 words or just one cent per word. The quality is enough to satisfy the requirement of Ezinearticles, the largest article directory. However, those writers usually want to work in a set of 10 articles at 400 words per article. They do a bit of research, and rewrite the main points using different set of keywords. In this case, they can still earn $4 per aricle, and $40 in a day for the ten articles. That is at least a decent rate. Those with perfect English are commanding much higher rate. Even many Indian writers do not want to take assignment at the rate of 50 cents per 100 words. I hope this type of automated article cures your procrastination problem! Maybe you can print it and read it whenever you do not feel like writing!

Scheng are those writers working on the batches of 10 articles at a time submitting them to Ezine for payment or other sites? Are these articles submitted together for payment or separately to different sites?

Hi, you can read more about the ridiculous article at gadgetgoat dot net. Find the Microsoft vs apple article. Most of the articles are ok, only those that he reduced the asking prices are real bad. This shows that we shouldn't bargain too hard.
