Article spinning still strong in 2011?

I cancelled my AMA account about a year ago, and I now noticed that was a mistake. Anyway I want to join up again, but Im thinking that the new Google changes which will be cracking down on content farms will see AMA publishers drop, and may render article spinning useless?

Hi Daniela,
Content farms are different to what AMA actually is.
AMA own all of the directories/blogs etc on separate c-class IP's, at least that is what I believe AMA to do.
I always spin my content as much as I possibly can or better still I have original content written before even submitting it to AMA.
AMA also drip feeds content so it looks natural to the search engines.
But don't just rely on AMA alone. Add in some other quality link building options as well.

Troy :)

Its A good question and interesting one also. And the best way is to test by yourself and find out what works for you. Regarding content spinning. Wold Wide Web has to be closed down as we know it in order to make spinning useless. Its just that all these gurus that teaches how to spin donĀ“t know how to spin content themself and neither do they come from an education where they would understand the logic how a computer is built which actually translates to content spinning.

As you probably have heard computers are built around 00111000 nothing else and you can see what amazing things we can do with them only knowing on and off... {|} is actually the exact same thing its On or Off. But no one teaches the power of that. You could in theory spin up a site with the content and design included in thousands perfectly unique sites from
extremly well spun content with included spun design. If the site would be 30 pages you would create it from 30 "very well spun" articles nothing more. 1000 sites from 30 spun articles with design included!!!

And done right it would be so unique so internet has to be closed down totally if you would start to ban those sites. The problem I have with AMA and such and thats why I am not using them either is not the content itself but its what you are doing with it. You cant do anything that looks like you are having some type of interaction with your readers in the content. And have you seen a blog that someone cares about that does not have elements of user interaction? Ie pictures videos twitter facebook? It might have worked very well 2008 or so but search engine algoritms has evolved.

This would mean that you need to make better and better spins. And that the original article should be of very high quality in the first place, i.e., well-researched and well-written, and preferably in-depth and authoritative. I myself spin each and every sentence so that the spun versions turn out really different from the original.

I know AMA works greatly, my first 2 sites I build 70 per cent of the links using AMA and ezinearticles and they still continue to rank on page one for over half the keywords (most keywords score 3 or 4 in traffic trav). I spinned a total of 82 articles, very high quality and each where about 550 words once spinned. This is why I regret stopping my memebership, as hands down is the best tool I have used to getting and keeping rankings.

With the new changes I think a lot of the blog owners will not benefit as much from having autoblogs (which is where all the articles are posted), however maybe the new changes will only have a small effect I mean after Google cant afford to manually check a large number of sites.

Also AMA dont own all there blogs they may own a lot but you can join as a free member and publish the content that people provide for free on your site.

I have wordpress sites where I publish content from AMA (of course, those are not Affilorama-style sites). I have the option to approve or reject articles submitted for publication, and the criteria that I use are:

1. Original Article Rewritten at least 100% and the higher the percentage, the better.
2. Links not simply added to the end of an article but are distributed within the body of the article.
3. Links in the article point to web pages that are relevant to the article and are not spammy or not be of poor quality in any way.
4. Anchor text used relevant to the article and to the content of the link target
5. Correct grammar, spelling, sentence structure
6. No spinning errors
7. Article is high quality (I actually read the article)
8. No biobox or any reference to the author

As I manually approve the articles for publication, it does take some time. But that weeds out the junk articles.

Now I am NOT telling you to get articles from AMA. I shared the criteria I use to select articles for publication so that you can use them as a guide for when you submit and spin your own articles on AMA. This is so that your articles will be accepted for publication on sites where the webmasters actually screen the submissions.

Needless to say, sites that screen articles from AMA for quality will get higher rankings on the SEs, because the articles published there are of higher quality. And backlinks from higher ranked web pages of course have more value.

Thanks Fara
You have actually answered a couple of questions that were bugging me regarding submitting spun content to AMA and SEOLV.

It is great to understand what you guys want as your content. Many of us blindly write what we want, how we want, or just assume that we do the same for you as we do for an article directory - hence the resource box and then wonder why our acceptance rate is less than perfect.

You're welcome, Chris :)

Yes, the resource box is indeed an issue for articles distributed through AMA or SEOLinkV and similar services. That's because the sites that receive content from those services want the articles to appear to have been written by the site owner. It's not syndication, which is what happens on article directories, and that is why we need to spin when submitting to AMA or SEOLinkV.

When there is no resource box field at any site where you submit articles, that would only mean that you are not supposed to put in your bio :) and you will need to incorporate your backlinks into the body of the article.

if the article is not spun good, meaning if it`s not readable it will not be approved by the directory

Oh, I'm so glad I came across this thread! It makes more sense about how to make use of AMA. I was worried about using an article spinner. But, I would really like to since I write all of my content and man, I'm kind of tired of writing at 2 in the morning. Thanks for this!
