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

Is This A Good Relationship?
Am I In A Good 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!
