I’ve been putting off writing this review to let some of the hype die down a bit. If your email box is anything like mine, last week it was lit up with everyone talking about The Best Spinner from Jon Leger. Today I want to tell you guys my experience with this article spinning/writing tool and if it’s worth the annual $47/year recurring cost.
Created 40 articles in under an hour!
The first time I used The Best Spinner, straight out of the zip file, I was able to take 2 articles in two separate niches and spin them both into 20 articles each. I did this in the space of about an hour for the whole thing. Each article was spun to about a 70% unique state which is fantastic.
The interface of The Best Spinner is very easy to use. You simply paste in your article text, tell it to identify all synonyms, and from there you can begin the very easy process of creating the spinning syntax (a fancy word for code) that will alow you to generate all of your newly spun articles.
Personally I hate spinning, the syntax gets confusing, it hurts my brain, I just don’t like to do it!
Normally, creating by hand all of the nested “or” statements is really a pain in the butt to do, but The Best Spinner does all of this for you. It does this on the fly. All of the needed spinning syntax is created for you, ready to be pasted into your favorite article submitting software.
The true power of The Best Spinner however, lies in the back end database full of user contributed synonyms built from everyone else using the product. As users of The Best Spinner add their own synonyms to the collective database, these alternative words and phrases are available for your to use in your articles. This allows you to create very unique articles super fast.
One of my favorite features of The Best Spinner is the “Replace Everyone’s Favorites”. Using this feature, you can replace the words or phrases in your article using those in the collective database from everyone else who uses the tool with the push of a button. You can choose the quality level of the replacement, (good, better, best) but this also will effect how unique your spun articles will be – Best is less unique, Good is more unique.
So the big question is – “Is The Best Spinner really the best spinner?”
The short answer is absolutely. The Best Spinner is not the complete answer to article re-writing. It is still a good idea to paraphrase sentences or paragraphs to give your articles your own personal flair as well as uniqueness. I also don’t like the annual recurring cost of the product. You know that this time next year, anyone who still uses the product, will have an unknown bill come out of their paypal account because they forgot about the purchase. I’d like to see a monthly recurring cost model instead.
Overall, TheBestSpinner is a fantastic product that should definitely be in your bag of tricks for publishing good content to the web. At least worth a try at only $7 bucks. Just remember, if you stop using the prodcut, cancel your subscription or you’ll find yourself out the $77 annual fee next year.
Side Note – A Quick Take on Scribe.
Right now as I write this article I’m using another new plug-in called Scribe. It’s in beta and is brand spanking new. So far it looks really cool.
Scribe is an SEO optimizer for your blog, that plugs into WordPress and analyzes your articles to ensure each one is search engine optimized for the keywords you are intending to target.
Lately, the folks at Scribe have been going through some technical issues with their internet provider which in turn is causing issues with people using the plugin. They are working through these issues and I will be writing another post on Scribe later. So far I like it a lot. But we shall see…
The SERPs are the true test. I’ll write more later
