    I have a free service going to spin certain characters in articles with look-alike ones. It seems to work well for me but I do not know much about the search engines catching on to this. How new is this method?


    if anyone wants to see (I am not allowed to paste urls):
    data(dash)helpers
    TLD is "dotkom"

    Search engines are getting more intelligent, I wouldn't do that, maybe 5 years ago :)

    Google doesn't like people trying to game the algo. Not much excuse for encoded articles except to game the algo. Rumor says Google is going to treat it like hidden text.

    There is no advantage and a large disadvantage to using encoded text on a website. Google and others will index your code as it's written, CODE. Nobody is going to be searching for your page using extended ascii or Cyrillic characters I can assure you. Another disadvantage is Google relies on LSI words along with keywords to determine relevancy and if all your LSI words are encoded or partially encoded then you have no LSI words to support your non-encoded keywords so those keywords you're trying to rank for look like spam. Nothing on the page supports them - no relevancy, no love from Google.

    Encoding fools old plagiarism tools like CopyScape. It doesn't fool more advance plagiarism tools like Plagium. Plagium actually converts the encoded text to english and then finds the duplicates as if it was never encoded. Now if Plagium can do that then you damn sure know Google can do it.

    Bottom line - the only person you're fooling using encoded text are your visitors, old plagiarism tools and yourself. Worst than that, you're killing the relevancy of the keywords you're targeting, indexing for garbage text that will never be searched and maybe suffer a slap by Google when they catch it.

    Good luck

    But wait, you only replace stopwords, not all the words inside the article! So your keywords remain intact.

    Does someone use this method? Can you post character spinned articles to blog networks?

    I am not talking about HTML entities. There are a lot of non-English characters, which look VERY similar to English letters, but they are different. If you replace English stopwords with non-English letters which look very similar to English letters, then you get a unique article.

    You probably have to be absolutely sure you are 100% accurate and all your spins outputed are perfect. Otherwise, it will all be a garbled mess.

    Totally - It's a useful method of spinning to create TONS of free content that reads well, very quickly.

    "Best Use" of the content are for off site content uses: i.e. web 2.0 properties,wiki sites, article directories,blogs, etc.
    because
    ♦ The content reads perfectly, just like the original article.
    Which helps:
    - Drive more traffic to your main sites from readers - Oh yeah the readers.... =)
    - Keep backlinking properties alive longer than using crappy word spun content that you can hardly read, which gets moderated (deleted).

    ♦ The content indexes quickly. Better than poorly word spun duplicate content.
    Which helps:
    - Increase the number of indexed properties / backlinks.
    - Decrease the amount of resources needed to index properties.

    Anyone concerned about risks using character spun content should simply not use it on main "money" sites, and continue
    to use it as a source of content for nearly all off site uses. It works very well for other properties
    and there's no worry about penalties or sites getting de-indexed, etc. from off site content on other sites.

    If you're doing any kind of serious marketing, you'll need tons of content which can cost x,xxx easy.

    This is where a great tool, like article rewriter wizard (plug), comes into play and saves you a hellish amount of time and money!
