I have a need for source content to create highly spinnable document. Over the past few weeks I have been playing with a new (to me) way of doing this which has decreased the amount of time taken in preparing a decent document by a large amount. In addition the breadth of topics that I can cover is now, for all practical purposes, infinite.

This whole job took less than 60 minutes and not much longer than it takes me to prepare a highly spun document that I have bought in and need to edit/format to my needs. Of course the cost of doing this is much smaller than trying to buy content. Worse yet, usually, highly spun content that is sold as PLR has usually been beaten to death by people using SENuke and similar tools!

To share the technique I share a walk-through of what I did.
The tools used are:
1) Answer Analyst
2) The Best Spinner
Both are available from Jon Leger.

This project was to create a multi spin document on the topic of 'relationships' for back linking purposes using a large network of sites that I currently post to. The output needs to be of decently readable quality because the accounts are mature and have been active for, in some cases, over a year.

Finding Content With Answer Analyst:

Firstly I used Answer Analyst: added the keyword relationship to the Keywords box and used Y! Answers to generate a list of questions

I chose the simple 'what is a relationship?'

Added the term to the 'Question' box, chose Google as the source, medium answers. Secondary answers, add to current results and loose matching.

Unless you use Answer Analyst this means nothing but you can see the process from the Answer Analyst sales page and from Jon's training video.

The software found over 100 results.

I clicked the check box on all those responses that seemed usable to save the snippets to the clipboard.

Next I clicked add to research (I did not save the references)

Now I have the content for an article. This will be worked on shortly.

Making Article Titles:

Next, I looked for article titles. For this I went to Google in my browser and typed in "What is a relationship" (no quotes)

After looking at the search results I chose a number of titles of pages that seemed relevant to my core question "What Is A Relationship".

In this case I ended up with a list something like this, yours will vary according to the region that you are in and probably your previous searches (I didn't bother logging out of Google):
What Is A Relationship?
What Are Relationships About?
Am I In A Relationship?
Are You In A Relationship?
I Don't Know What A Real Relationship Is
You Don't Know What A Real Relationship Is
Is This A Good Relationship?
Am I In A Good Relationship?
Are You In A Good Relationship?
This Is What Being In A Relationship Really Means
How To Understand What A Relationship Means
What Makes A Good Relationship?
What Is A Good Relationship? - The Signs
What Is A Healthy Relationship?
7 Ingredients Of A Healthy Relationship
What's The Point Of A Relationship?
What Is A Serious Relationship?
What Is It Like To Be In A Relationship?

I went to The Best Spinner and added all the titles I had collected to the work panel then I used 'Auto Select Synonyms' to create variations of each title so that our original 10 titles will multiply a lot. I use 3 synonyms maximum and retain the original.

I checked through the results and quickly edited them. This is important because the title is what readers see first and it makes no sense then it will be disregarded or the article flagged as spam - if that happens I will probably lose the account(s) that I have set up over the months.

After editing I then highlighted all the titles, right clicked and selected 'Title Case' so that each title would look right with initial capitals. Then I selected 'Spin Together' from the Spin Tools ribbon. Now I have a long list of titles and variations all spun together with 91% uniqueness from 7 words average length (a very useful length for article titles!).

Making The Article Body:

So, that's the title. Next I went to the article body. The task is to create a set of paragraphs that can be spun together and using AutoSelect Synonyms create a huge number of unique articles that make sense when read.

I sorted through the results I had previously saved and discarded all that were not appropriate to the topic.
Next I started sorting them into some kind of order. My goal was to make several groups of snippets that could be identified as having some kind of similarity in terms of their theme so that I could create a series of spun together paragraphs. To do this I used a text file and simply cut/pasted snippets into the groups that I wanted. To make the formatting easier to follow during preparation I split each group of sentences that was going to form a paragraph from the others with a line made of asterisks. After a few minutes of sorting I had created a series of paragraphs each with lots of sentences.

The work then moved over to The Best Spinner again.

I pasted all the sentences into TBS and then selected each group of sentences that I had split with asterisks and highlighted them. Now, I went to 'Spin Tools' and selected the 'Spin Together' wizard and started spinning each group of sentences together. In a couple of cases I chose to have a blank paragraph so that the length and structure of each article would differ as well as the words and information.

This left me with very long articles, typically well over 1200 words. When I read the output it looked spammy. To make the article shorter and less obviously 'manufactured' I span some of the previously generated paragraphs together. This made the article shorter and the spun output looked more real and natural. The output was now around 600 words.

At this point the articles generated were substantially unique but the potential variation was not huge. To increase variety in the output I went to 'Auto-Select Synonyms'. First I protected the significant keywords so that there would be no gibberish output and highlighted the whole document. The settings I used for auto synonymising were: Best Quality Cloud Thesaurus. Max Synonyms =3, Every Third Word/Phrase and Auto-select inside spun text. NO REWRITING!

Lastly I used the Remove Original Word wizard to ensure that the output of changes would be different to the source document(s).

Now, I had articles that were over 90% unique, not too spammy looking, and just about 600 words long.

The output read pretty well and although the structure of the articles looks very odd they make surprisingly good sense on a paragraph by paragraph basis.

I tested against Copyscape and found that, because of the setting I had used (every 3rd word or phrase) that each spin was showing some content from other articles - this did not concern me because I know that Article Builder, which does not pass Copyscape works well enough. My judgement was that changing EVERY word or phrase would have made articles that read very badly.

Preparing For Publication:

At this point the formatting was a little untidy. Gaps between paragraphs were sometimes uneven and some paragraphs did not have capital letters. I tidied this up in TBS and saved the result.

For back link building I use an automated tool call Money Robot that works directly with spintax documents so I simply copy pasted the whole document into MR. A couple of minutes later it was busy building web pages across my network of accounts.

The use of Answer Analyst:

I picked up Answer Analyst a couple of weeks ago. It seems to be something of an orphan these days, however, it works very well to collate content. I was very quickly able to generate a large amount of very relevant content and organise it for use in The Best Spinner. There's no problem that I have found with Google throwing up Captchas and I can get content on any topic under the sun.

It is possible to do everything that I did within Google or Bing but the time taken to strip and format the content would make the task very difficult. I have tried using PLR articles, sliced and reformatted as I did with Answer Analyst but the source material is often too widely used and so even after using TBS rewriting tools lots of similar version crop up across the web. Working with AA, in most cases each snippet I use is present in only one place on the Internet.

Even if one does not use the whole system I have outlined here, using the title 'trick' is a great way to expand one's supply of titles for articles - particularly when working with Article Builder, where titles are something of an issue (IMHO).

I hope that somebody finds this useful!

I run a site www.knowhow-now.com we cover factual material with a 'how-to' slant. We prefer articles that have titles such as 'How To...', How Can...', 'How Does...' in hundreds of niches.

If you are seeking a destination for your well-written, unique (but absolutely NOT spun or rewritten!) factual articles written in good, grammatically correct, English then please give us a shot. We don't offer this for back links and affiliate links simply don't work. ;)

If you would like to see your work featured and promoted across multiple social networks and accounts on a site that has been around since 2005 then take a look at our publication guidelines here: http://knowhow-now.com/page/write-for-us

Thanks!
Over on the Special Offers forum I have posted a new offer. We are in the process of relaunching Marketers College. There's a special offer with a serious discount and I'll let you read it for yourselves. ;)

However, I thought I'd share something today. I was just setting up a new small package on the site about how to start an online business with little or no money. I thought I'd share it with you. No email to give away, no money changes hands, just a free report with lots of relevant information about how to get started online with little money (but quite a lot of work - which is good, OK?)

The content in the report is all real and valuable to any new business. This is stuff I used back when I was getting started full-time online because back then I was living in a new country with a daily budget of about €3. I HAD to start with no money. I did - well, kinda. :) This stuff works.

By the way, we don't do gimmicks, we don't do tricks, we teach people to make businesses.

I use ArticleBuilder quite a lot and one thing bugs me. I get one title per article. 'That's all you need' says the bloke up In the peanut gallery.

Of course, he is right, but also not right.

If I make a spun together mega article for use in posting or backlinking projects then I get 20 titles. I can do stuff to auto rewrite them but the other day I was working making 500 articles at a time from spun together AB articles (yes, 500 works pretty well). Problem was that even with rewriting and creating more variations from the seed list there was a lot of duplication of titles which I don't really want.

I wanted a solution.

Gottit!

Attached to this post is a looong list of over 230 article title seeds in which the main keyword is replaced with a token: #keyword#. All you need to do is replace, using search/replace the #keyword# token with your main article keyword and you will get, right away, 230 extra titles.

Now, you can add these to your project in The Best Spinner along with the Article Builder list, rewrite them a little for even more variation and press the button to generate the finished articles.

Or, you can just use the list as an idea generator for article titles. ;)

Have fun!

PS. I just added another list set up with 'pipes' for use directly in TBS and other spinners. This version still works with the token replacement.
Found a really useful service today: http://www.onlineocr.net/default.aspx

It is a free OCR service that can turn text in images into text output in various formats including spreadsheet or txt files.

What use is it?

Well, today I wantd to turn an image from a sales page that was a list of article titles into an editable list. There was almost 100 of them.

A couple of minutes later and I had a neatly formatted text document that took a few seconds to tidy up the spelling. I am sure I will find more uses. ;)
Using Long-Tail Keywords in Your Website Content

This is a version of an article I wrote and posted on my own website, I hope that you find it useful.

When we want to get visitors to our web pages from search engines we need to get our pages ranked for keywords that searchers are using. This can be pretty hard for competitive terms but can be much easier for what are called 'Long Tail Keywords', these are keywords that are less searched for and thus have less competition. As a general rule Long Tail search terms have more words in them than more competitive terms.

In this article I am going to show how to use a Google Search tool: Google Suggest to drill from a competitive, top level term into additional longer tail keywords that may not show up when using a normal keyword generation or research tool or even the Google Adwords suggestion tool.

This method uses the normal Google search page. To start out just type in the subject area or niche that you are researching into the normal Google search box.

If when searching you are not seeing these suggestions just go here: http://www.google.com/preferences look for the heading 'Google Instant Predictions' and select one of the two on' options and click the save button at the bottom of the page.

When you start entering search terms you will have almost certainly seen that you start getting suggestions for your search.You can control this to some degree by typing in your base term and then a single letter, parhps start with an 'a'. You will see that Google then offers suggestions of keywords that people are searching for that start with your initial keywords and continue with the letter 'a'. If you add more letters you will see that the suggestions change. Work your way through the alphabet and just note down all the terms that you might find useful - or just drop in and take a term or two as and when you need them.

What is happening is that Google is enabling you to drill down into the search terms being used by real Google users. Using normal tools you may never see these terms because there are not enough searches using the term to get the term picked up in the Google Adwords tool, or other keyword research tools but given that the term shows up it is obvious that people are searching for them.

There's another benefit of using this technique: because these terms are not part of Google's Adwords tool and are unlikely to be in other keyword research tools it is very unlikely that other marketers will be using them - you may be the only person in the world targeting readers with the combinations that you select.

Now that we have found some useful terms that fit our needs we can start to use them in our content. Here's how we go about that task:

Let us suppose that we have a PLR article on a particular topic but the terms used are high level and too competitive to be easily ranked, a very common issue with PLR articles. You can easily modify the keyword phrases in the article with the long tale terms that you have just researched, just by using search/replace in your text editor. You may need to tidy up the article around the replacements to make it read better but the result will be a unique article about the niche topic of your choice using long tail keywords that very few other people are using.

This is a very fast and easy way to find long tail keywords that will help you modify content that you already have on your hard drive and that you can put into your sites for easy quick traffic.
I'd like to suggest a feature for the web interface of AB.

Pre-Loading

Sometimes when setting up a site we need to pre-load content so that the site appears as fully formed, or that grows very rapidly for a few days and then settles into an ongoing drip feed of content at maybe one or two articles per day. That is a little inconvenient with ArticleBuilder's web interface.

It is possible to press the Post Now button several times in succession but that posts all the articles at once and often one wants to have a lot of posts for a few days running into the future.

What I'd like to see is the ability to post X posts over a period of Y days with the posts spread out randomly over that period either by setting a future posting date or better yet by actually posting from the AB server at randomised times.

I'd like to be able to do as many as a couple of hundred articles at one time and perhaps have them appear over a period of up to14 days.

Such a pattern would not look very unusual, after all many websites start off quickly to build a body of content and then slow down into a maintenance mode*.

*If I were to be getting my fantasy features I'd also ask to be able to post a few more than 3 articles per day. I have some sites on which I'd love to post 25 or 30 per day. :)

Anyone else interested in such features?
I run quite a few sites that accept user generated content - articles, images, videos etc. Some are part of a blog network used to grow back-links to one's own sites.

All the following is written in the clear knowledge that it is not legal advice and is not written by a lawyer, just a bloke who did some reading and is going through the process described. ;)

Over the past few months I have received quite a few notices asking me to remove content or links due to some imagined problem with Google. Of course, as we all should know, there is no way that anyone can ascertain whether a particular link is a 'bad' link and I know that I run good quality sites and so I ALWAYS refuse such requests, usually without a reply.

Sometimes I get threats in various forms, I have even received threats that I will be hit with a DMCA Take-down notice for copyright infringement if I do not comply. Of course such a threat would not be valid, especially given the initial contact and its purpose. ;)

Well, a few days ago I received a DMCA Take-down for the first time. I received a notice and had 48 hours to respond. A deadline I was not able to hit and so my site went dark.
I did some research and found that it is very rare for people to contest a DMCA notice, the trouble is not seen as being worthwhile. But I learned something else. It is also very rare for a contested DMCA notice to be responded to.
There's a good reason for this.

When a DMCA is opened the complainant is making a claim under penalty of perjury that they are justified in making the claim but there is no money cost and pretty much no comeback if the claim is false.
When a counter claim is made there is also a claim under penalty of perjury from the defendant. Here the defendant is taking a risk because if he goes to court he is liable for the truth of his claim.

However, after the counterclaim is filed the complainant has 10 days in which to file suit at a court in the state of the hosting company and THIS costs money. It is at this point that most counterclaims go unanswered and the dark site goes live and the disputed content is returned to public view once again.

DMCA might be a scary thing for many of us and it may be that we take the view that we should simply roll over and save time and money. Well, I disagree. I spent several hours doing research, I liaised with my hosting company (Hostgator) who gave good input and guidance (but not legal advice!) and who were happy to re-enable my site as long as I removed, at least temporarily, the content under dispute.
On my second attempt I produced a DMCA counter-claim that was acceptable to HG's legal department, that had all the relevant info and was electronically signed in the correct manner. I am now almost a week into the 10 day waiting period and, touch wood, not a peep from the complainants.

That the complainants are a Canadian based internet marketing biz who were mistaken in their original claim may have some relevance here because they have to pay for legal representation in Texas for a claim in which they can be shown to have been economical avec le verite.
The thing is that if we give in to dishonest threats then we all lose. If they come back with a court filing I will simply ensure that the content stays down and will tell the court and complainant the same.

I doubt anything will happen and on the upside I now have a template for counter claims that will enable me to reply in a matter of minutes to a spurious or dishonest claim.

One thing I must make clear though - do NOT get angry with the host if they take down content or the site, they have a legal obligation to do so and they can be helpful in getting things sorted out.

The following is a version of an article I published on my own site earlier today. I thought it might be interesting to some people here.

The Lazy Man's Way To Keyword Research

For many years I have been selling online. In all that time I have never been particularly into doing keyword research. Maybe it is because I am lazy, but maybe it is because there is another route to attain the goals.

I grew up and have spent most of my life in a selling environment. Always the objective was to build a rapport with a prospect and move them to the point at which a sale would be made.

One of the basics of selling is a process called 'qualification'. At its simplest qualification is about finding out whether the prospect is likely to buy from us or is just walking around passing some time before going home to enjoy dinner with his wife and family.

In face to face selling we did this by asking questions. We'd ask about what the prospects needs were, why they might be spending money, when they might be doing so and several more. If we found that a prospect was not ready to buy now we might, if not otherwise busy, do some relationship building – share information, build rapport and maybe even some product training all with a view to the prospect returning later to make a purchase. Others we'd find were ready to buy right now and we only had to package the deal and close it in order to have cash in the till.

Well, the same applies in internet marketing. there's nothing new in the world. But there is something that we can do. We can choose our prospects!
"Huh, how does that work?" might ask the experienced sales people among you.
Actually it is quite simple. The internet is full of people ready to buy stuff, people who need just one last question answering, one little confidence boost more, one tiny little shove to get them to make a purchase. Also, the internet is full of people looking for general info, people who are just exploring their need for a product or service, people who are not yet ready to buy anything but might one day be.

Research has shown over the years that there is an easy way to tell which group people fall into and even where they are along the process from initial investigation to eager buyer. That surefire indicator of intent is this: SEARCH TERMS!

We now know that people who are ready to buy tend to use a consistent set of search terms and that people who are starting out use others and in between comes a spectrum of types of search terms.

Now, I am sure that most of us want to get a fast return for our investment in our business. We want to find eager, credit card proffering buyers who will TODAY make us just a little bit richer – Am I right?

Given a choice between a person who might buy in a few weeks or months or a person who needs to address a problem right now which will we almost always choose?.

Most of us will seek out people ready to spend money now.

And that brings us to why we do not need to do keyword research – or at least not the type that we have been trained to do since we started doing internet marketing and running an online business.
What we need are the keywords that people use when they are looking for the place to make a purchase. It turns out that the list is not a long one. But the odd thing is that relatively few people use them.

Here's a list of buying keywords, it is not exhaustive but if you use no others when looking for action taking prospects to turn into buyers you will not go far wrong.

1 Buy (product name or product type)

48 Compare(product name or product type A)and(product name or product type B)
49 Get the best price for(product name or product type)
50 (product name or product type) – used on its own

Let's think why this works for just a moment…
When we are just starting out we will tend to be using open ended questions designed to answer broad questions. As we become more focused upon an eventual purchase we tend to use shorter queries and to be more closely directed until the end when we might type into a search box 'buy XXXXXX'

Surprisingly few people use this strategy and as you can see, if you are using this method there is very little research to be done. You can spend the time generating the content to support the keywords and building back links to your sales oriented content.

This does not mean that we need never do keyword research but I tend to look upon that as more of a task of niche research, looking for areas where there are willing buyers who are relatively under served. Also, we should not ignore, given time, those millions and millions of people who are still researching a product or service, the people with whom we can build a relationship for the future.

In the Automated Websites that I sell I try to stress the idea of building a sales funnel into the site so we have different types of content on them. We try to start with content that supports a single product, that acts as a pre-sell, helping folks to choose to click the links or banners in the article(s) onto the product vendor's sales page. We also carry the content that is more general, that is designed to answer the questions about the topic, provide information, tips and guidelines to prospects and we always suggest that Automated Website owners add their own content and, in particular, it is this last category that needs full-on keyword research of the type that Keyword Canine and other tools support.

The researched keywords will bring in the people just starting the process of buying and the other content leads them down the funnel to a sales page. In the final analysis though the first point is the buying keywords, the ones that never change and apply to all niches, products and services, the ones that shout out 'I WANT TO SPEND MY MONEY!'
I was just starting to set up an affiliate program for a new product and I want an easy way to test out various pricing strategies. I know I could have done the job with a calculator or a spreadsheet but I found a suedful calculator here that saved me the trouble of doing both. ;)

It works for single purchases or subscriptions, although to be fair it does not account for the initial purchase price which with CB can be different to the succeeding payments.

Here yer goes: http://www.clickbankguide.com/calculator.htm
Sometimes when setting up a site I want to prepopulate the site with some content - particulalry when setting up my Automated Websites.

Until recently we used to do this by using the 'Post Now' button under auto posting. We would click the button, wait for the confirmation, click back to the Post Now button and repeat. This can take a little time.

Well, we found that if one presses the Post Now button several times then articles will be posted multiple times in one action. So, if I want six articles I press the button quickly six times, wait for the page to update, press the 'Click Here To Continue' link and badaboom, bada bing there's six articles posted to the site in one go.

Maybe not a big thing if you are making one site but it adds up when making hundreds of sites. ;)
I wanted to share something I have been working on just recently it is a short 12 page PDF about writing reviews.

In the document I cover the following areas:
  • What is a review?
  • Different Types of review
  • What is the one type of review we should avoid writing?
  • How to write that one type of review (just in case you REALLY need to!)
  • How to write a product review
  • The elements of a product review
  • Four questions every review should answer
And a little bit about why reviews make money for us all.

You don't need to give up an email for this info, there's nothing to buy, just download the PDF file, read it and use it - and maybe ask questions in this thread. Writing reviews has earned me many tens of thousands of dollars and in some unusual ways. You don't have to be a great writer to make money this way, just a little bit less lazy than most people who do it.

Here's where you can pick up the document.
I don't know about you guys but I buy huge with PLR. Mostly the content is provided as a plain text file (.TXT) and that works just fine. I can use it exactly as I want.

Sometimes, the vendor supplies only the Word files (.DOC) and as we know, this is no fun if copy pasting into web pages, or sometimes just for editing or rewriting.

You CAN save the file as a .TXT file from Office and similar but this is far from perfect what with 'smart quotes' and other stuff that messes up other tools we use. Worse yet the process can only be done file by file.

Today I bought a bundle of content and it was supplied as Word files. The straw that broke the camel's back. Hundreds of bloody .DOC files.

I went in search of a solution.

I could get macros that claimed to automate the job, but only if I had exactly the right version of Office - and no help with Smart Quotes.

I could get online tools that worked fine but only one document at a time (but faster than doing the job from inside Office).

Or I could pay between $30 and$100 for an application to do the job.
GRRRR!

I did find a solution though that seems to be working fine and it is free (but you DO need MS Office on your PC to use it.)
I can add folders and it transforms all the DOC files (even within subfolders) into neatly formatted TXT files.

One drawback that seems likely to be a commonplace one with other tools is that some kinds of formatting when translated to TXT don't look quite right - indented paragraphs are notable here. The whole paragraph gets indented rather than just the first line.

So, where to get this handy FREE software tool?

Well, it is called Word2txt and you can get it from here: http://www.download25.com/install/zilla-word-to-text-converter.html
The software is genuine freeware but when you exit the tool they will nag you to bu an upgraded product that can convert PDF to TXT and (IIRC) other formats - but I got that task covered already. ;)
I was doing some checking with Copyscape the other day and found that an article I was checking did not show up there - it should have done.

I checked in Google and found literally thousands of versions - no, never anybody say to me that Google shuns duplicate content it simply ain't true!

I tested again with some similar content and found on each occasion that the same result occurred. Nothing in Copyscape and very many iterations in Google.

What was the common element?
It was not encoding
It was not language
It was not the kind of content

It was AGE!

This kinda makes sense since we all know about link rot and who is interested in old content. But anyone relying upon Copyscape to check plagiarism is going to be disappointed by this. I now know that I can take aged content and pass it off as new to those who use Copyscape.

What is the cutoff point for the age filter? I do not know. The articles I was testing with were anything from 4-7 years old and in a variety of niches.

Actually, this seems like quite a serious limitation for a tool designed in the first place to catch plagiarism.
I was wanting to find a way to quickly and easily 'customise' Article Builder content before posting it out to my blogs or downloading it. Not big stuff, but here's an example: In Article Builder there is a category for 'back pain' but what if we want to have content about 'lower back pain'. Adding a keyword filter to AB does not give much content here so that is no good (and it ain't superspun either) so I wanted a better solution.

So, I went looking. I found a FireFox browser add-on called unsurprisingly 'Find and Replace for FireFox '.

Dead easy to use and basic in operation, you can build your article in AB, select the number of articles you want and then right click and you'll see the option to launch Find and Replace. All you do now is choose which keyword you want to alter in the selection box. Add the term you want to change over to and select 'replace all' or 'replace. I like 'replace all' ;)'. Bingo bango, you now have content more close to your niche and can download or post it as you wish.

This add-on will work in any text input box in Firefox so there are plenty of other uses for this dead simple little tool. One I suggest is well worth a look is for those who want to quickly re-focus existing blog posts. Just open your blog to edit the post, right click, alter the keyword and you are done. A couple of seconds per post - even more effective if you open up multiple edit windows and do multiple posts in very rapid succession.

Haz fun!
