I mean you can do that as well of course and it all depends on what SEO project you will be working on. If you just need an extremely high quality article for some Tier 1 project, you can head to the website and do some manual work, but if you need content for, say, your GSA SER campaigns, you just need to connect WordAI to your Kontent Machine and you are good to go. Now, let’s take a look at WordAI’s “Standard” spinner.
That’s really weird. I have tested WordAI and Spin Rewriter with Copyscape and the results were always 80%+ uniquness, even 90%+. I don’t know how u spun the content to achieve such low results, but this is definitely way too bad. As for the block spinning, I have to be honest, this is the first time I’m hearing of it and I will have to check it out when I have a bit of time, but generally, yes, in the best case scenario, you would manually touch your Tier 1 content to make it 100% human readable and as unique as possible. For lower tiers, you can do pretty much anything, but again, the better quality of content, the better results you will have. That’s in my opinion and experience.
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
