    We all know that backlinks are definitely important. The more backlinks, the better; the higher the quality, the better; the more unique, the better. In order to greatly decrease the time you invest in writing articles in order to gain backlinks, you do article spinning. However, before you do article spinning, understand first the mechanics of article spinning and also the different ways in can be done in order to maximize your efforts.

    DO?s and DON?Ts in Article Spinning

    DON?Ts of Article Spinning

    ? Article spinning is not simply a one-click rewrite or an auto-spin using everyone?s favorite synonyms. It is actually more than that. Lazy ?spinners? (they don?t even deserve to be called that) give legit, premium article spinners a bad name. When you do ?garbage? spin (or use one-click software to spin your article), you basically get garbage.

    ? Article spinning is a skill and not a software. Most people, especially SEO ?experts? or SEO ?specialists?, think of article spinning as merely a tool or a software they can buy and have a few outsourced ?spinners? from India or Philippines use it. However, you can buy programs that you can use to make article spinning a lot easier but it still relies on the human brain. If you want to get high quality spins, get people who know high quality spinning to do the job.

    ? Spinning articles can be done in many levels and in many forms. Many think that it is only in synonym level or word level. They are mistaken. Different levels in article spinning will be discussed more below.

    DO?s of Article Spinning

    ? Treat the articles to be made as if you are writing for humans, not robots.

    ? Invest much time in checking and rechecking your spin article.
    ? Spin everything! (keywords, titles, body of content, summary etc.)
    ? Invest on a good article spinner in order to save you much time and money.

    This guide may help you: Levels In Spinning Articles (arranged according to popularity)

    1. Word Level Spinning (simply known as word/synonym or is usually referred to when one says the normal term of ?spinning?)

    This is accomplished when one uses a program to accomplish this in the least time possible. It is highly discouraged to use any auto-rewrite or auto-spin no matter how good the program might look. This is simply because of the fact that no software is smart enough to assess a whole article and understand how every sentence meant and how every word is used. A program called Spin Rewriter (no, I?m not an affiliate) comes a bit close but it still has its major flaws. Therefore, as an expert in this type of article marketing, always go for an article spinner that you trust in terms of not using an automated program or one who does not outsource it to others (which will probably compromise the quality).

    OPTION: If you really want to save time, you might start building your own list of synonyms. Try to choose the word synonyms that are really safe and correct 95% of the time in order to save you time in rechecking after the spin article is finished. For example: {that is|which is} or {people|individuals}

    In word level spinning, there are also two kinds: simple and nested. Simple spin is simply choosing different synonyms for the word in the article. Nested spin is choosing different synonyms WITHIN the synonyms. Example:

    Simple:

    Nested:

    2. Sentence Level Spinning (Personal recommendation because of the variety of the sentence constructions)

    In a nutshell, spinning in sentence level or adding sentence variations is by spinning PER sentence instead of per word. In itself, there are actually many ways you can do different sentence variations and expert article spinning services can get better results with this compared with the write-ups that are spun in word level. It may be hard to believe it but in our experience in this type of business, the results are very close, but, combining them both and turning them into Ultra spin articles is definitely the way to go.

    When I just started out Ultra Articles, I actually made a little guide in making multiple sentence variations just so my article spinners (especially the beginners) will get the hang of spinning. I won?t (or not yet) put the file available for downloads or put all the information here but I can share 3 simple variations for newbie article spinners to try out:

    These are categorized in my sheet as low-quality variations or simple variations but they still can get the job done.

    #1: Simple Sentence Reconstruction

    Original: The man is running while the monkey is dancing.
    Variation: The monkey is dancing while the man is running.

    #2: Adjectives

    Original: The black cat is meowing.
    Variation: The brown cat is meowing.

    #3: Alter Proper Nouns (including the numbers)

    Original: A man named Joe has 3 dollars.
    Variation 1: A man named John has more than 2 dollars.
    Variation 2: A woman named Vanessa has less than 4 dollars.

    3. Paragraph Level Spinning

    This level is popular among those people who have subscribed to UAW (Unique Article Wizard). The UAW format or the combination of original paragraph + 2 paragraph variations is popularly encouraged by UAW. In terms of results and how unique are the articles, the results are actually bad compared to sentence spinning and word spinning.

    4. Article Level Spinning (also popularly known as article rewrites)

    This is simply creating another variation of the article as a whole. With a single variation like this, you will have a VERY LOW uniqueness since every spin is only a matter of choosing between the two. This is only recommended if combined with other levels.

    5. Ultra Level Spinning

    This is simply (not really simple) combining different levels on a single product. This will result in different results and different capabilities of each product. Each product is recommended to be used for a single purpose and it is actually detailed more in our homepage.

    NUMBER OF UNIQUE OUTPUTS

    Here is a simple calculation I use in order to ensure that each output from a spin article is relevant in the eyes of Google. (Also to discourage my clients to buy the most expensive article is there is no need for them. On the other hand, I use this to encourage my clients to go for the more expensive ones if I could see that the unique outputs are only limited to the need.)

    ((5 x number of paragraph spin OR 25 x number of paragraph spin, if there are sentence spins) + (50 x number of sentence spin)) x (2 for light word spin, 3 for heavy word spin, 3.5 for heavy, nested word spin)

    EXAMPLE: (Article with 1 paragraph spin + 2 sentence spins + heavy word spin)

    ((25 x 1) + (50 x 2)) x 3 = 125 x 3 = 375 UNIQUE OUTPUTS

    ANOTHER EXAMPLE: (Article with 2 sentence spins + light word spin)

    ((0 x 1) + (50 x 2)) x 2 = 100 x 2 = 200 UNIQUE OUTPUTS

    NOTE: This is a rough calculation that I use. I haven?t invested much time in really cleaning out the specifics of the figures. But this will assure you that you will get at least 70% uniqueness in each version of the spin article.

    ANOTHER NOTE: If you go beyond 4 sentence spins, it will no longer be additional 50 unique outputs per spin, it will double.

    FOR TITLES

    My recommendation: for every 50 unique outputs, have 1 title. If you are aiming to use 1,000 unique outputs from your spin article, get 20 titles.

    RESULTS

    Search results: 25.1 million

    All I can say is this, I got my site at page 1 by submitting to article directories ALONE (using AMR). It is true, article directories aren?t the recommended places to get links unlike before but you will still get solid results if you make sure your spin articles awesome and unique. A friend of mine who is an expert in SEO taught me about this and he can also verify this. You may argue that the effectiveness of AMR is not as strong as before BUT, if you continue to value quality and uniqueness with your spin articles, you will definitely get results.

    ARTICLE MARKETING STILL WORKS

    A lot of people still argue that article marketing is dead. To tell you the truth, it is not; it never has been and it will never be. The truth of the matter is, the search rankings will always rely on the number and the quality of backlinks. Because of this fact, an article spinning service will definitely help you make super-spin articles that can help you in creating links for your sites. Duplicate content will get you nowhere as well as badly spun content especially during the Post-Panda era.

    I will continue to update this post when people ask unique questions in order to make it better. If you have questions, ask away!

    Thanks for this guide. I totally agree that crap spinning gets crap results.

    I was wondering that when you say you ranked your site on article marketing alone, are you aiming the article links directly to the money site with no Web 2 buffers?

    Another question, I have had good results just using article directories too with high quality spun material, especially the Wordpress based ones where I put the link inside the content. Is it dangerous to only use article directories to rank, will they drop over time?

    The main thing for me is that I can't stand building Web 2 hubs and all the work it entails. Might as well build my own websites but everyone seems to be doing it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Yes directly to my money site without ANY buffer. (Getting you to page 1 is ENTIRELY depending on the competition but it still gets you at least the top of page 2 or the low page 1 in my experience.

    2. Contextual linking is definitely the way to go which explains why you had better results in the Wordpress based ones because you can insert the link inside the body. A friend of mine explains pretty well that resource box links are definitely not as good as before in his post here:

    Me neither. That is the reason why I only choose the good blog networks to use my articles on (affordability + quality). I could build my own network of web 2.0 but I'm too lazy to do it. haha.

    Thank you for the guide! I'm looking to create an article that I can use several hundred, maybe thousand times for my website. What I've done so far was created 3 unique articles (1 article and paragraph spun it twice). Then i came on here to search for the best way to spin them together.

    I was going to do a word spin + paragraph spin for my super article. I hope Im doing this right.

    (5*3)+(50*1)*3=195
    where paragraph variation spin = 3, sentence spin =1, and spin density = 3.

    Now, If i spin each sentence so there are 2 variations instead of 1 I would get
    (25*3)+(50*2)*3= 575

    Is that correct?

    That is correct. However, make sure that the word spin multiplier is really 3. It might just be a medium spin which means that it really should be a 2.5.

    Now I feel silly writing out 3 different articles when I should just be sentence spinning. Oh well now I know what to do next time.

    I watched a video where someone was spinning an article by hand changing words, sentences and paragraphs. To the naked eye the results looked quite different and then she layered each spun article over each other and the layout of each article was almost identical. It was surprising how easily these articles could be spotted as being the same.

    Sorry I haven't explained it very well. You really had to see the video in action to realise how futile spinning is when it's done poorly. She went on to show how spinning properly can make a real difference. When you start spinning html, anchors, images, video, dropping sentences and paragraphs you can really get some real high numbers of unique articles. These are almost impossible to detect. Unless you believe in ngrams...

    I've been known to spend hours spinning one article but they last forever.

    Here we have Google employing the greatest scientific minds in the world with a billion dollar budget and people thinking that clicking change my favourites in a $77 spinner is going to beat Google's people. I don't think so.

    I agree. People tend to get lazy and simply scrape all the articles they can get, put them in a single file and then spin them away. What comes from garbage results in more garbage.

    People seriously do not see the importance in investing time on creating a well-thought out article and use that for a month or two.

    Uniqueness is really important and because of that, I agree with you. Spin everything, the title, the paragraph, the sentence, words.

    I even incorporated a special spintax that would vary the number of paragraphs from x to x-1, x-2 or simply x. I also put in conditional links wherein somes outputs there would be 1 link only and some would have 2 links. I also put it in different groups of URL spintaxes in order to diversify the links.
