Document Spinning – Tips and Tricks

Document spinning software is designed to turn a single document into multiple variations using synonym replacement techniques.

The purpose of this is to enable users to publish copies of their articles on multiple ezine or blog sites for example, whilst avoiding Google’s multiple content filters.  Google’s duplicate content filters will discount duplicate articles from sites with the lower page rank. This of course means that 2o identical documents on 20 ezine sites will only bring you one link to your site. To avoid this your documents have to be sufficiently different.  The magic figure (at the moment) is about 30% different in content.

There is some excellent software available to assist you with this process but it does require that you revise the way in which you word you documents. Keep them in very plain english and construct simple sentences. The more you practice this the more natural it will become.

Lets look at a few examples.

Example 1: Here is an overly complex sentence with overly complex words.

Weight reduction is a difficult task made even harder buy our propensity for high calorific value food.

This is the text is spun form. Note the {Original Word|Variant1|Variant2|Variant3} format – this is the spinning language.

{Weight|Excess weight|Bodyweight|Fat} reduction is a {difficult|challenging|tough|hard} {task|job|process|activity} {made|produced|created|manufactured} even {harder|tougher|more difficult|more challenging} {buy|purchase|acquire|get} our propensity for {high|substantial|higher|large} calorific {value|worth|appeal|price} {food|meals|foods}.

These are three of the possible results.

Excess weight reduction is a challenging task created even more challenging get our propensity for large calorific price meals.

Weight reduction is a hard process made even more difficult get our propensity for high calorific price food.

Fat reduction is a challenging task produced even tougher purchase our propensity for higher calorific price food.

As you can see, the variations are not really acceptable.

Example 2: The same meaning but in a simpler form

Losing weight is hard to do because we all like high calorie food.

Again, here is the spun document-

{Losing|Dropping|Shedding} {weight|excess weight|bodyweight|fat} is {hard|difficult|tough|challenging} to do {because|simply because|since|due to the fact} we all like {high|substantial|higher|large} calorie {food|meals|foods}.

Here are three possible results

Shedding weight is tough to do due to the fact we all like large calorie food.

Dropping bodyweight is hard to do due to the fact we all like large calorie foods.

Dropping excess weight is difficult to do due to the fact we all like high calorie foods.

Clearly, all three of these variations make sense.

In summary, document spinning software is a very valuable tool in the Internet Marketers arsenal but in order to get the most out of it you do have to modify your writing style somewhat.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Productivity Tools-The Blogger’s Best Friend

I must admit I spend a lot of time writing. Traffic Infuser is a new project  for me but it is not my only project. I have a number of more traditional websites selling my own products and I have  business selling B2B hardware and software. All of these enterprizes take up a significant amount of time writing documents, procedure manuals, e-books and general correspondence and communication.

While I am a reasonable typist I simply could not keep up with the volume of work if I didn’t use some very clever tools. Specifically, the tool I have found to be the most valuable is the speech recognition program Dragon Naturally Speaking.

When I first tried speech recognition software it was a dismal failure. I abandoned the thought of using voice recognition software because of my earlier experiences. Some 18 months ago I invested $250 and made the jump to Dragon Naturally Speaking and I have not looked back. Once you have installed the product and gone through the training (which only takes 10 min or so) the product is instantly responsive and very accurate.

While it is true that you do have to do take a little care in the way that you enunciate, you soon get used to this and rapidly find that the accuracy improves to the point where you are dictating at 2 to 3 times the speed that you could type. Add in the fact that typographical errors are virtually eliminated and you end up with an extremely efficient method of producing written documents for use in blogs, on your e-zines sites or if you so wish in your general correspondence.

Dragon Naturally Speaking also allows you to navigate around the Windows desktop, insert macro controls and open applications with a single word or phrase. When you familiar with the product all these actions become second nature. In a very short time you will achieve a high degree of competency using the product and the benefits are not limited to improved typing speed but there are also side benefits such as a general improvement in the clarity of your speech, which is necessary to get the best out of the product but simply occurs as a function of using it.

Other benefits include the tendency for your thoughts to become more structured and your sentences to become better constructed. One last but very significant benefit is the reduction of strain on your hands, wrists and shoulders gained by virtue of the fact that you no longer type anywhere in you is much used to.

Dragon Naturally Speaking can also be used with a Dictaphone and there are many of these available as free apps on your i Phone .Currently, I use a free Dragon Naturally Speaking i-Phone application to dictate and e-mail my thoughts while traveling in the car. I can then easily transfer the information into written documents at a later date. Again, this makes my time in the car very productive time indeed.

Do yourself a favor and invest in a copy today. I am confident like me, that you will not look back.

Article Submission – How and Why We Do It

One of the oldest yet still more effective techniques in driving targeted prospects to sites and converting them into buyers is information-based marketing. This is why article writing, submissions and publications are at an all-time high. There are many tools that you can use to make the process of distributing your articles easier. However, although this is invaluable in getting your article exposed to more sites, there are common mistakes that some people make before submitting their articles to directories.

Let us take a look at the more common mistakes made in 3 key areas:

1) Confusing the reason to promote articles with the reason to write them. In article writing, the main benefits of you promoting them is branding, lead generation and promotion, which are all part of your optimization efforts. However, there is one reason why you write articles, and that is to inform your audience about a subject. It is greatly important that your article is based upon this fact, or else you stand to fail in the promotional benefits as outlined above. Of course, it is also highly important that you figure out how to get people to read you article, and then to click on your site link in the resource box. I have produced a couple of articles that cover these areas so please check them out

2) Failing to realize and maximize the promotional opportunities of article marketing. You will more than likely already know that your article can generate links back to your site from the article directories themselves, and also from any sites who publish your article from these directories. However, did you know that you can attract more visitors and better search engine results from the same article? The first step to achieving this is to provide relevant keywords at strategic places in the article. However, do not overdo this. A good benchmark is to aim for between a ten to fifteen percent keyword density. I won’t go further into this here as I’ve discussed this in other articles but if you would like to find out more, look out for more of my article marketing articles. You shouldn’t just aim for your article to be accepted by article directories, but should ultimately aim for it to be used by publishers who scour the directories for website content. You should not underestimate the potential that this can have on your promotional efforts, as many of these publishers may have hundreds or thousands of regular visitors who could then view your article. Start out by having a plan of what you want achieved and make sure that you reach your targets. It is important to do this so that you can reap the maximum benefits of every article that you write.

3) Creating articles with content that does not help your readers. Maybe your only plan is to create an article and get links back from article directories, and that any visitor that you may get from this is fine. Well you may need to think again. Many article directories clamp down on the amount of articles that they accept that are simply not up to standard. If a poorly written,  uninformative article does make it into the article sites, then the potential of being picked up by webmasters seeking quality content is certainly lost. The benefits of one publisher with a hundred thousand website visitors picking up your article should be enough incentive for you to write an informative article. This is by no means impossible, and you may find that this value is conservative in what you may achieve from a number of publishers running your article on their site. Researching into a topic that is sought after is important. There may be many readers of this article who will feel that this information is all well and good but feel that they cannot write an article well, or may not know enough about a certain subject to write an article. This is by no means a dead-end. There are many places where you can research into a topic, or hiring a writer might be an option worth considering. The choice really is yours on how dedicated you are in increasing the exposure of your article, and consequently your website. On a basic level you can choose to gain a few back links from article directories, or with a little more effort you can enjoy massive exposure from providing quality content.
