    I used kontent machine to spin an article that on ntopic.org has a 99.40% score. The article is about 600 words however the article is a little choppy. All the words are spelled right, but if you were to read the article you would be able to tell it's written kind of funny.

    I am ranking this site and then going to use a program to put my clients site over my site, so the readability as for as for customers go doesn't matter. Question is does the article need to be readable as a ranking factor in google's eyes.

    No it doesn`t, you can rank with 100% unreadable content. But it does have to be readable for conversions!

    Cheers

    No it doesn't. But if the sites/pages where you'll place the spun (or whatever crappy article you have) rank high and go though a manual review, it will definitely not pass it and get penalized.

    Use High Quality contents if you publish in your own site. No one will read shit contents

    You can probably still rank it, but I don't know why you'd want to. Take the time to make it properly readable.
