    I've been a vocal advocate of the 2 above mentioned article tools for some time, and this morning did a bit of a comparison.

    for this test I checked the index rate of approximately 500 articles of each type using SB index checker running repeatedly until all were either YES/NO. This method unfortunately gave me alot of false negatives as any site thats been abandoned/rebranded would show up as not indexed, so I then identified these with SB link checker.

    All the articles are either posted on my own private blog network or the Fightback network. I could have included a few other sources but this was a test of my current methods, not a case study of different methods.

    The results in percentages was as follows

    Content Spiffer - 82%

    the way I use CS is to handpick 10-20 articles and mash them up at the sentence level with all other articles in the same folder. This gives an article that is very readable, although maybe somewhat jumbled and all over the place. It does look very human written though - maybe as if it's written by someone on meth!

    Articlebuilder - 68%

    I think this will greatly depend on your niche, I seriously doubt that anyone in the weightloss niche would get the same figures, but I'm lucky as mines not too saturated. The way I'm using this is to choose a 500/600 word article with phrases, not words, spun by the articlebuilder site.

    Hand Written Hand Spun - 72%

    I'll admit alot of these were grabbed articles that were hand spun, although they were spun either totally manually or manually within TBS - no auto push button spins.

    So no groundbreaking results, as all figures were roughly to be as expected. I would have thought that hand spinning would have been the best, and was a little bit surprised that CS won. The main reason for this excersise was to check up on my methods rather than a case study for you guys, but I thought someone may be interested.

    if you've seen the program there ain't no video tutorial needed. It's 4 simple steps.

    1. scrape articles and put in a folder
    2. load the folder into CS
    3. select word or sentence mashing
    4. hit go button

    Thanks, so once you perform these 4 steps, then you take the mashed article and spin it at word/phrase level?

    I have only tried hand written hand spun. I manually spun the articles. But sometimes, I use an article spinner to generate new content. However, lots of statements read awkward.

    no need - it passes everything, and it's just blog food. It's not content for a moneysite. All it is is primary, secondary and tertiary keywords surrounded by filler words, where each sentence reads perfectly and is relative to the sentences surrounding it.

    If you think about it no sentence is unique on the net these days. There's just too much content out there for anything general to be truly unique.

    and as the above sample shows, it indexes at a 10% better rate than spun. I'll just add that I don't ping or use any indexing service/method other than backlinking my backlinks and then backlinking those too.

    I'm quite interested in the fact that the Hand Written Hand Spun content doesn't get indexed at a better rate than the other content. Presumably the hand written/spun content was 'more unique' and more readable than the other content sources.

    It seems like search engines still have a long way to go before being able to assess quality of content. I like your idea of articles made up of random sentences mashed up - this seems to index really well. Also, it doesn't seem that hand spinning articles really adds anything at all to indexing, and it takes such a long time to do.

    I suppose manual spun content is good for tier 1 which are used to drive traffic to moneysite, but if tier 1 are used only for the purpose of backlinking then random mashed up stuff is the best.

    I've always doubted the quality of spun content. It just reads so obviously spun. With the other methods they produce much more readable content. Heres an example article from articlebuilder on "business - leadership", what I would imagine to be a fairly uncompetitive niche (when compared to things like weight loss and insurance etc).

    Code:
    Leadership - we all know what this word means, but few really discover how to become one of the better leaders. Should you be looking in becoming one of the better, you should choose the experts for help. Here we now have compiled expert consultancy that will direct you on your way to leadership.
    Don't think the employees will likely be in a position to read your mind. Communicate precisely how you desire a task being completed, when you want it completed, and through what method you would like it done. Offer an open door policy. Also, an open door policy ensures workers also can voice their concerns and in addition demand advice.
    Learn your employee's names. An incredible leader takes some time to find out the names of their most immediate staff, as well as the names in the top performers under them. It shows them that you simply care enough about the subject to understand them not only being a worker, but being a real person.
    Don't be overbearing whenever your subordinates are learning a whole new process. Instead, ask them the way that they learn best. You may well be surprised to find out that a number of your subordinates want direct instruction, although some desire to take a more trial-and-error method of learning. Unless there are particular reasons why accommodating them would be problematic, try and provide for both types of learning.
    Like a leader, it really is necessary to maintain an optimistic attitude in the workplace. Displaying too little confidence and expressing doubts about your team's probability of success is just not the way to motivate your team. You can't be prepared to receive their utmost effort once they feel they can be doomed to fail.
    A good leader can help develop strong leadership skills in others. By trying to micro-manage all the information of the business, you won't have the time to check out the greater picture. Having trustworthy employees who are able to lead others will provide you with a chance to delegate responsibilities when your company is growing.
    Encourage passion for the task you need to do. Whenever you show enthusiasm about something, it really is contagious. Show enthusiasm for any new project and also be passionate about the ideas your team has. Encouraging a passionate and enthusiastic attitude about jobs are a wonderful way to inspire creativity within your team.
    Use a clear vision of what you need to achieve along with your business for the short term and the long term. Both you and your employees is going to be better able to continue to course when everyone understands your vision so be sure they understand it. Make small changes when needed but always remain focused on the vision.
    Leadership is really a term that is often talked about in the industry world, however it is a location where few learn how to achieve greatness. Well, furnished with this info, you are now some of those few. Consider the advice presented here, and employ it by yourself way to leadership success. Best of luck along with your personal and professional achievements!

    Unfortunately I can't repet the above excercise for hand spinning or CS due to having to use my own articles and my unwillingness you out my niche.
