    Hey ladies and gents, Been creeping BHW forever now and rarely post. Anyways, I picked up The Best Spinner last week since it was on sale and I did spin a handful of articles to my site. The question i have should have been brought up by me sooner but i was excited and wanted to try it out. That being said my WP Blog isn't super busy. I get 250-300 visitors a day which I guess is decent considering the site is only 6 months old. I've been on and off with IM for 7 years so I'm not a noob to the whitehat ways but anything blackhat is unknown to me. Now, To my question. I manually spun my articles and ran them through a plagiarism checker which all came out 100% unique. The one i used was from (smallseotools) and yes, I don't want to spend the money on copyscape till i actually know how to use the tool. I copied paragraphs from different sites all talking about the same topic, After i just went a head and spun every word possible. I'm sure there is a better way to do it but since i was paranoid i figured it wouldn't be a bad idea to spin as many words as possible. It's just getting rough pumping out 20-25 600-1000 word hand written articles a week. That might be a bit much but i am doing this full-time at the moment.

    To sum it up this is what I would like to know from the experienced members.

    1) Will spinning content hurt my website even if it checks out 100% unique?
    2) I know this has been asked over and over but every one seem to have a different opinion on it, But can google detect spun content? I don't mean poorly spun content either. I'm talking about easy to read content that makes complete sense. Manually spun stuff.
    3) This is more of a luxury question, Am i spinning my content wrong by changing as many words as possible? I don't sentence or paragraph spin. I have only posted a handful of spun thing's that i could remove this instant if it will hurt my site.

    you're answering it yourself, if google can't detect then you're prison free and good to go.. else if you get caught, your website will be down for a limited time and maybe some more stuff (please read google's policy on that).

    Well, I'm basing them not knowing off of what (smallseotools) tells me. I have no idea if they are nearly as good as copyscape. I read their duplicate content policy awhile ago as well as a section on plagiarism. That being said I don't know if they have a way to pick apart a spun article. I saw a few people on here claiming it can be done while others arguing that fact. I just don't want to hurt my site since its already on a good path. 6 more months and it can be a fulltime income for certain people.

    if Google can't see it then you have no problem. However, what do your visitors feel ? Is the content readable without being repetitive or machine like ? Coz visitors matter after all. Often spun content reads pretty bad and that IMO shows through.

    I have a lot of user engagement throughout the whole blog fortunately. The spun content seems to be producing the same amount also, I don't see much of a difference in feedback and questions. It's definitely readable. I manually pick everything out word for word. I spend about half the time spinning it appose to manually writing the article. Are those plagiarism tools effective? I use the one from (smallSEOtools).

    I used article spinners at first, but I realized writing my own personal content was much better. It wasn't fast of course, but I could control every aspect of it.

    The big problem will be the bounce rate and the user engagment, don't expect good results with spun content

    Wont be an issue with google, it comes down to how readable it is for your visitors, if its hard to read you will have a high bounce rate and hardly any returning users

    Make sure the content passes copyscape and smallseotools plagiarism and its humanly readable. Once you get both 100% you are good to go.

    If your content is 100% manually spun and human readable, then you won't need to worry about. You're good to go.

    Spun content will only save from spending money for the blogs, but that won't benefit much. Someday Google will make a small change in the algos and your site will be down for a specific amount of time. As all insisted, work for your visitors and not for Google. If you will please the visitors, they will surely do come and you will get the desired results from Google as well. Don't rely so much on spinners. Machines can't make miracles happen, what humans can do. These applications are just created by Humans, but won't help in the long run.

    I use TheBestSpinner all the time for backlinking purpose and I've never had any problems, but I will never risk my money sites with spun content even if they're 100% pass copyscape

    I've been using Spun content for creating web 2.0 for some of my money sites but really they never got hurt just because they all are copyscape passed and they look original and good to read. :)

    I find manually spinning to be much easier since I don't have to go back and worry about horrible grammar that will lead to a high bounce rate.

    Dear,
    Writing an article manually can not be replaced by the spun articles. You would hardly be able to meet Google algo needs but not be able to grab your reader's attention. So, it is worthwhile to target your reader first and then Google for quality work.
