Best free article spinner tools and websites- use them or not?

Article spinning technique is mostly used in search engine optimization and in other places where you are looking to create a large volume of contents very quickly and cheaply. A few Website may use article spinning on their own risk but article spinner software’s are not very effective and helpful in generating quality SEO results.

Having said that, it is your wish to use article spinner software’s but we strongly suggest not to use as they are not very effective and sometimes they may produce contents that can be taken as jokes rather to consider as professional written articles.

Here, I will share a very small paragraph that I have taken from GSRMArena ,a leading gadget reviews website widely know for its review of the mobile phone, smartphones.

We will start with one of the famous website offering a variety of free SEO tools small seo tools no doubt some of their tools are very good but while checking their article re-write here is what we have that you can check in the picture.

The re-write is pretty decent but if you can compare with the original one this will make no sense and someone reading this re-write article would be forced to think about the quality of your contents and how you create them.

It is always best to write original contents and that will always help you in making your audience stick to your post and will also help you to increase your SERP’s the search engine ranking position.

Let’s have another from pre post seo guys and you can again compare the original one with the spin articles.

check the black highlighted the part where one word “Who” is converted to United Nations Agency, why because the text spinning algorithm matches that to WHO, the World Health Organization and this kind of text spinning can only hurt your content reputation. Would you as a reader prefer to read such articles posting spun texts? of course not.

My last pick was from spinbot that will appear on top in the organic search results as a free text or article spinning tool. check the below picture showing their re-written article

they seem to be doing much decent article spinning service but even with this result, I would not recommend you to use any of the article spinning tools or services and simply go with the basics and straight content creation that people can see as original contents.

But, I rest my case here for you to decide if using a free article spinning tool or service can help you achieve measurable results.

How to add/integrate wordpress blog to your HTML

It is very simple to add or integrate WordPress blog to your existing website and I will keep it very simple.

You will have two options that you need to decide before you can install or add a wordpress blog to your domain

a) Do you want to add it to your existing website e.g www.yourdomain.com/blog

b) You opt to go and add this as a sub domain to your existing website like blog.yourdomain.com

There are many reasons you should consider and prefer the option (a) over option (b), for example you already have a setup website and you do not want to disturb the current website or you have ads running on your primary domain and if you add a sub-domain as a blog and try to add it Google Adsense you may not be able to take the advantage of your current website history. You can learn more here about Google Adsense for a Subdomain, its advantages and disadvantages

Now, Once you have decided to add your new WordPress blog by installing into a sub-folder of your domain here is what you can do

1 – Go to your Hosting cPanel and search for Softaculous Apps Installer and search the wordpress icon

2 – Once you see, click on the icon and it will lead you to the next screen as follows

3 – Click on the install now. The next screen and option is very important and you need to be careful. Once you see the next screen you need to add the folder name where you need to install the WordPress.

Here you can write the directory name, Say you want to make it www.yourdomain.com/blog so write blog in the blue box and wp will create a folder. Remember if you leave this option blank the WordPress installation will be done on your root folder and the existing website will be gone. So be careful here.

Follow the installation process and once complete you can log in to your WordPress admin panel and starting posting your blog posts.
