Unique Content Poster / What is Unique Content Poster?
« on: December 06, 2014, 03:14:15 PM »
Unique Content Poster automatically orders articles from iNeedArticles.com, the best content creation service on the web (in our opinion). The articles are ordered based on keywords you provide. Those articles will be used to post to your blog on the schedule you choose. We will attempt to have up to 10 articles available at any given time to ensure that the articles will be available when they are needed.

This means that when you first create a posting job, 10 articles will be ordered (unless you specify that less than 10 total posts should be made). Then one additional article will be ordered each time a new post is made to your blog (until the max number of posts for the job is reached, if you set a maximum).

NOTICE: These articles are not free with your Unique Content Poster account. We simply tie into iNeedArticles.com using their API, ordering the content for you automatically, and posting it to your blog(s) on the schedule you choose. You will need to keep your iNeedArticles account funded (we'll notify you via email when you run out of iNeedArticles funds).

NOTICE #2: Keep in mind that iNeedArticles is a service, and it's possible that the service may get a heavy workload from time to time, causing the articles to be completed more slowly. That doesn't usually effect the posting schedule for us, since we pre-order up to ten articles initially, but it is possible that some posting days will be missed if iNeedArticles does not deliver the articles soon enough.

iNeedArticles / The new "Busy Tax" explained. What do you think?
« on: November 15, 2014, 06:07:59 PM »
Here's the email that explains what the new "busy tax" is that was just implemented for iNeedArticles.com. In case you didn't get the email, this is it in full:

Hi Jonathan,

We have an important change that has been implemented
in iNeedArticles.com

It's called a "Busy Tax". Let me explain what that is
and what it means for you as an INA client.

Over the past year and a half iNeedArticles has grown
in popularity month over month. That is GREAT and we're
thrilled about it!

We have a lot of highly skilled, fast writers, and
normally the work load is NOT a problem. But sometimes
we get a TON of orders all at once, and that causes
the system to bog down and pushes turn around times
past our 3 day promise.

This (understandably) makes our clients unhappy,
irritable and upset that we've broken our promise.

In order to prevent that from happening, we regret
that we now have to impose a 'busy tax' when more
than 225 articles/rewrites get ordered in one day
(you can always see how many articles/rewrites have
been ordered at the top of the page with the other
queue stats).

This doesn't happen very often, so it won't affect
you very often. But when it does happen, submitting
an article or rewrite order will cost you an
additional one cent USD for every article ordered
over the 225 daily articles our writers can
comfortably handle.

This does not apply to ebook orders, only
articles/rewrites.

That is, if 300 articles were ordered that day,
ordering another 500 word article would cost you
the base price of $3.50 plus an extra 75 cents
'busy tax', making the total $4.25.

Once the orders submitted in the last 24 hours
returns to under 225, the tax disappears. The
tax pays the writers more, which really motivates
them to clear the workload and get things back
to normal.

They make a little more money, you get your 3 day
turn-around (STILL at a fantastic price) and
everybody is happy.

Let us know what you think about this change at
the iNeedArticles forum:

Here's to your success Jonathan!

Hey guys,

In case you didn't already know, I compose/construct music. I'm pretty proud of this particular song, so figured I'd share it here:

Hey guys,

FYI, no new topic this week because I'm having my team write 500 new titles for each of the top 10 most popular categories:

-> Weight Loss
-> Search Engine Optimization
-> Internet Marketing
-> Travel
-> Home Improvement
-> Fitness
-> Home Business
-> Personal Finance
-> Forex
-> Social Media Marketing

This will allow you to generate a lot more articles without getting duplicated titles, and is particularly helpful for the auto-blog posting jobs.

The Best Spinner 3 / Bug fix TBS version 3.51 pushed out.
« on: October 16, 2013, 09:57:52 AM »
Hey guys,

Thanks for all of the feedback on the new TBS 3.5 features. I pushed out a bug fix version today (3.51), that fixes the following:

1. Protected terms weren't being protected when using the Cloud Thesaurus.

2. The pipe character (|) was showing as italicized when using the Cloud Thesaurus.

3. No message was displayed if TBS was unable to rewrite any sentences, so it looked like nothing happened (it now shows a message).

Hey guys,

Two major updates have been pushed out in TBS v3.5 today. I think you'll be really happy with them:

1. Automatic Sentence Rewriting



When you right-click in an open document, there's a new option in the menu: Rewrite Sentences.

This does exactly what it sounds like. It analyzes the document and rewrites/restructures sentences whenever possible. It's very good at this (better than the "competition" that claims to be so far ahead of everybody else--yeah, right).

In addition to rewriting sentences in general, it will also reorder lists found within sentences. So, for instance:

Quote
You should eat plenty of fruits, veggies and grain if you want to be healthy.


Becomes:

Quote
{You should eat plenty of {fruits, veggies and grain|veggies, fruits and grain|fruits, grain and veggies|grain, fruits and veggies|veggies, grain and fruits|grain, veggies and fruits} if you want to be healthy.|If you want to be healthy, you should eat plenty of {fruits, veggies and grain|veggies, fruits and grain|fruits, grain and veggies|grain, fruits and veggies|veggies, grain and fruits|grain, veggies and fruits}.}


Notice how it both restructured the sentence AND reordered the "fruits, veggies and grain" list within the sentence so it's completely randomized.

There is also an option to rewrite the sentences when you use the Auto-Select Synonyms feature, which brings us to...


2. New "Best Quality Cloud Thesaurus"

For about a year now I've been building a very high quality English words/phrases synonym database. It's size and quality are unmatched by anybody. I think you will be truly impressed at how good it is.



When you click the Auto-Select Synonyms menu item, two new checkboxes are on the options form. The first instructs TBS to use the Cloud Thesaurus instead of the local thesaurus on your computer. That means it will send the text to the TBS servers, analyze and process it and send back the results. It's still very fast, but a tad slower than the local replacement process. The results are well worth the wait, though.

The second new checkbox is the Rewrite Sentences checkbox. If selected, the sentences will be rewritten before the auto-replacement is performed. Be sure to select "Auto-select inside spun text" if you want the words/phrases inside the rewritten sentences to also be spun.

I'm eager for your feedback, so be sure to let me know what you think.

TO REITERATE Both of these new features are performed on The Best Spinner servers, and the results sent back to the desktop application. So you have to be connected for them to work. The advantage of this is that you get immediate access to all Cloud Thesaurus updates (which happen constantly) and improvements to the Rewrite Sentences algorithm (which is also continually being improved).

New Product Ideas / Instant Infographics From Articles
« on: October 07, 2013, 12:53:11 PM »
EXAMPLE 1:



EXAMPLE 2:


EXAMPLE 3:


Hey guys,

I wrote a script to generate an infographic from an article. This is just an article I pulled at random from EZA.

What do you think? Would you be interested in a tool that can generate an infographic from an article?

This one is using a very basic template, of course. I would have a graphics artist design some really nice templates that could be selected.

Interested in your thoughts...

Thrifty Rewriter / What is the Thrifty Rewriter?
« on: August 18, 2013, 08:05:22 PM »
The Thrifty Rewriter is ThriftyContent.com's handy dandy article rewriting tool. It breaks your article down into paragraphs and sentences and lets you rewrite the article one sentence at a time. It makes rewriting PLR (Private Label Rights) articles much, much faster.

The Thrifty Rewriter is free to use with no obligations, hidden costs or gotchas:

All feedback is welcome. Just create a thread on this board.
