I've ranked websites in the past with spun content, and now they are still on #1 position of google. First year (2014) google found me because my spun was really bad, many paragraphs were just copied and my position drop from #2 to around #20 after a panda update. Later I cleaned all my text with better spun (I didn't buy any article!), my ranking went up again, and with more backlinks I reached #1 and it is still there
Spinning Speed – How quick can these spinners spin the article above. WordAi took 3 minutes and 48 seconds and SpinerChief III Ultimate using Super Spin in the balanced setting (meaning try to be unique as possible while still being readable) took less than 3 seconds to generate. I’ve had WordAi take 5+ minutes before, they need to speed things up. Clearly SpinnerChief won the speed test.
I’m new on this of online business thing, and English is not my native language. In spite of that, I have written my first pages and posts by myself. I totally agree with what you say here. There is nothing more satisfactory than to produce your own content, even if it is not perfect or excellent in the beginning, but with time and practice, it will surely improve.
From personal experience Spin Rewriter is the best! like I still use it today. Its so easy to use (Just copy paste and the program do everything) Because of this tool I managed to schedule content and articles for 3 years, do you know how much time and money I’ve saved?!?! A LOT!!! Also i high recommend you pick their mothly plan if you are still in doubt
