So you are still doing it? I have stopped using spin content after panda update way couple of years ago. As content become king and the user expereince the key to earn website authority, I started focusing on writing more meaningful and engaging content. I never cam across any spinner that time which makes total sense after spinning. The spin content either looked very bad or it needed manual review. I forgot the name of the spinner tool as well. Looking forward for replied from more experts here as it could be an eye opener for me if spinning still works.
I put the keyword in Google search, Open the first top 5 websites copy the content, manually edit those content add or remove good lines and convert 5 articles into 1 good article, then copy to spinner chief and rewrite manually. Add some good infographics made by me or stock images and embed my hand made video . my niche is, "how-to" "tutorials" so I can manually make some video. So can I rank this type of contents? With some pbn or web2.0
In simple terms, if we define the term spinning, then it is all known as about rewriting of the paragraph or even the whole of the paper straight in your own words. Unlike into the concept of the summarizing, you will be keeping every single thing as rough and in the same length as the original one. You can easily perform this task as by means of going through the original and hence changing every other word for the purpose of the synonym by means of using the thesaurus. You should be finding yourself as all the time repeating on with the portions of the original document.
I've ranked websites in the past with spun content, and now they are still on #1 position of google. First year (2014) google found me because my spun was really bad, many paragraphs were just copied and my position drop from #2 to around #20 after a panda update. Later I cleaned all my text with better spun (I didn't buy any article!), my ranking went up again, and with more backlinks I reached #1 and it is still there
