Article Forge


Easy to use






Overall quality



  • Videos, images, external links, etc. are added to the articles
  • Create unlimited number of articles
  • Can be integrated with WordAi
  • It has trial option
  • You can schedule articles and publish on your WordPress sites
  • Easy to use


  • Needs more improvement
  • Generates sometimes unrelated content to the topic

I recently stumble upon a promising website content writer tool and decided to use the trial option to write this Article Forge review. You may already hear content is king phrase. It is well known that quality content is essential if you want to rank in Google and other search engines.

Sites that get regularly updated with top quality content tend to rank higher as their content is shared more often, backlinks start pouring, and all-mighty Google recognizes it as a valuable website.

Creating top-quality content has always been a challenge for bloggers and website owners, as it can take lots of research and time. Most bloggers do research and write their own content. Bigger companies and webmasters with more money hire other people to write content for them.

Some even outsource it to freelancers using services like iWriter. Each one of mentioned is standard and efficient methods. If you are running a website or websites and want them to rank higher in SERP, you need content. A lot of content. And writing content takes time.

But people always search how to stay ahead of competitors and adopt future technologies for content writing, saving time and money. This is where tools like Article Forge come in. They promise us shiny new things. But we all know it is not always so peachy.

Article Forge is presented as a website content writer tool which writes whole articles for you. You just need to input keyword, and a few moments later, you have freshly “baked” content.

It uses fancy algorithms and gives you new articles within minutes. The articles are not just worded and placed to make sense but also pass Copyscape and other plagiarism detectors.

So, Article forge is not just a spinning tool, but your personal writer. This all sounds amazing. Is Article Forge really the next big thing? Can it be the best tool for high-quality content in minutes without the need to write anything or hire expensive writers?

I have tested for five days extensively using their trial option, and you can check below Article Forge review to see is it worth your time and money.


UPDATE: This article was originally posted in 2017, and now a few years later, I decided to test the newest version Article Forge 2.0.

Because of that, I will be removing some parts of content and images as some settings are no longer available, and some have changed.

If you see strikethrough content, that means feature was available in the older version but not anymore. Developers say they have improved generating high-quality, unique articles that look human written.

They even admit that Article Forge 1.5 did an ok job generating content before, but content generated clearly looked like a machine wrote it. But they say now it is no longer the case – “Article Forge 2.0 content is completely indistinguishable from human content!” Well, that is a bold statement.


Article Forge Review – Best Website Content Writer?

According to the sales page, Article Forge uses sophisticated deep understanding algorithms to automatically write and research articles from any niche in the same way that a human does.

When you put a keyword, Article Forge reads millions of articles, learning everything it needs to know about that topic to write content in its own words.

Basically, it scrapes content from the web and then spins that content, paragraphs, etc. and writes each sentence in its own words producing nonduplicate content.

Article Forge can automatically add relevant titles, videos, and images to every article it writes if you enable that option. It can also add links automatically. Using Article Forge article creator tool is very easy. It is web-based, so you don’t need to download or install anything.

Just register an account and start your 5-day trial. Be noted you will need to input your credit card details. If using PayPal, you will still need to put credit card details.

You will not be charged anything if you cancel while trial lasts. Also, it seems sometimes they ask for photo ID if they believe your info may be fraudulent.

So when you start the trial, don’t forget about it as later their system will recognize that you already used it If you try to create a new account (they check IP and other data).

When checking Article Forge 2.0, I see that regarding the account menu dashboard, nothing has changed. You still have a left side menu, which consists of New Article, My Articles, WordPress, Post Scheduler, API Information, and Affiliates.

What is new in Article Forge 2.0?

  • Article Forge can now generate content in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.
  • You can Perfect Tense tool to check for spelling and grammar mistakes in content generated by Article Forge.

What is new in version 4?

  • Article Forge 4.0 writes more coherently, giving you a true article rather than a collection of semi-related paragraphs.
  •  You can now tell Article Forge what topics or talking points to avoid.
  •  Supports adding multiple user accounts to your subscription. And, you can control what level of access each user has

What is new in Article Forge 4.5?

  • Content is more fluent, accurate, less repetitive and more diversely structured.
  • You can now instruct Article Forge on exactly what you want it to write about.
  • You can now write infinitely long articles directly in the Article Forge editor.


Creating Article

When you want to create a new article, you just click on New Article where you will be presented with options to start content creation.

Article Forge 2.0 New Article options.


To create an article, you need to input the keyword. If you wish, you can also input sub-keywords, which is recommended.

Below you can choose your content readability. For money sites, it is recommended to use Money Site Filler setting and leave it at its default settings.

Article Forge also supports Tier 1 and Tier 2 content options with nested spintax that can be used across hundreds of sites.

If you wish, you can click Toggle advanced options to customize how your article gets written by setting additional options like Number of Sentence Variations, Number of Paragraph Variations, and to toggle on or off Shuffle Paragraphs.

Article length can be set to 50, 200, 500, or 750 words. Unfortunately, you can’t set to more than 750 words. This is something that hasn’t change.

You can also enable the option to add titles and headings, set image and video adding probability, or replace keywords with links.

Embedded videos are chosen from YouTube, and images will be hard linked to content at If you decide to replace keywords with links, you will need to create a new replacement group.

If multiple links (one per line) are given in one replacement group, the tool will randomly link a keyword to anyone on the list. If you want to link multiple keywords to the same link/link list, just list keywords (one per line) in one replacement group.


Keywords Links Replacement


If you wish to use Copyscape to check if the received article is unique, you can enter your username and API key. To use WordAi for additional rewriting, you can input your WordAi email and API key. For more information about WordAi, be sure t check my WordAi review.

Article Forge offers only integration with WordAi because it is a tool from the same developers’ team. Because of that, there is no option for Spin Rewriter (check Spin Rewriter review) or any other article rewriter and auto spinner.

When all set, click Create New Article button. Article Forge will then start to do its job gathering content and mixing it up to deliver unique and human-readable content.

Depending on which article length option you choose, this can take a while. Up to five minutes or even more. I always presume that it longer it takes the better. That should mean that the tool is really working hard to deliver quality content and not just spitting some crap in a few seconds.


Does Article Forge Scrape And Spin?

How does this even work? Is Article Forge just scraping and spinning articles? According to developers Article Forge does absolutely no scraping and spinning at all.

Article Forge 2.0 was launched with a deep learning model that is able to write high quality, unique articles from scratch that look like a human wrote it. But there were some flaws – for instance sometimes Article Forge 2.0 could be off topic or irrelevant.

So with Article Forge 2.5 they have added a second deep learning model that is specifically designed to learn new information very quickly. This second model can therefore handle obscure topics, new niches and events, longtail keywords, individual products, and more.

With Article Forge 2.5 these two models now work together to make sure your articles are high quality, unique, relevant, and up to date without requiring any spinning. Each article is written from scratch exactly like how a human would write it! At least that is what this tool claims. Let’s put it to the test.


Putting Article Forge To The Test

EXAMPLE1 – What kind of review would this be if I wouldn’t test this website content writer tool. I have used for the first example Winix 5300-2 Air Purifier as a keyword and added two sub-keywords.

I only know English, so I am only able to test results for English. I have enabled Titles and Headings options and set video and image probability to 60% to see how it will look.

Article length was 500 words. After about 2 min, I received my article.


article forge test
Article Forge 2.0 test. EXAMPLE1


Generated content is around 400 words and not 500 like I set. The image was added, but no video. Next time I will try increasing probability.

I must admit, though not perfect, this content is far better than the version I tested back in 2017. It still needs corrections, but it can be used. I will let you be the judge of the article provided.

I use Grammarly Premium (check Grammarly review) for proofreading and plagiarism checker, so I also tested this article. I was surprised they were not many mistakes found using Grammarly. You will also be notified by any mistakes in generated content via an integrated Perfect Tense tool.

For plagiarism, Grammarly showed only 2%. This is very good. Few corrections and this content could be used on site. You will also get spintax of your text, and you can export it or publish it on your WordPress site automatically.


article forge spintax


Article Forge can automatically post to self-hosted WordPress blogs if desired. You can add as many as you need.

You just add your site URL, login info and can publish your newly created articles to your sites. You can even schedule a post to be published using the Post Scheduler option.

You can opt to post manually after generating, reviewing, and manually editing an article, or choose to automatically post every n number of days based on a list of seed keywords.

Export options include plain text, HTML formatted, and PDF format. All your articles can be accessed through My Articles on the left menu tab.


Article Forge schedule posts


You can utilize Article Forge API if you wish. There is also a limit on API, as I can see. This is nothing strange, and it is often restricted to prevent abuse.

For me, it wrote: “With the current plan, you can create 200000 words between API, Bulk Generator, and WordPress Post Scheduler each month. You can create unlimited words with our web interface.”

After that, the cost of using these services is 25¢ per 1000 words. This is something that has not changed even in Article Forge 2.0.

EXAMPLE2 – Here is another example of text produced by Article Forge. This time I decided to test what will Article Forge generate about itself. The main keyword was Article Forge, and sub-keywords were advantages, disadvantages, settings, and languages.

I have enabled Titles and Headings options and set video and image probability to 100% to see how it will look. Article length was 750 words. After about 2 min, I received my article.


article forge alternatives



Generated content is around 559 words and not 750 like I set. The image was added but no video despite that I added a 100% probability. This time Grammarly showed more mistakes than in the first example. For plagiarism, Grammarly showed only 3%.

But provided content is far from usable. I mean, I am not even sure what generated content is about. I will let you be the judge of content quality and how much content is relatable to the topic (keyword inputted).


Quality Of Generated Content

I made extensive testing of Article Forge 2.0 and can say that it is better than the version I tested in 2017 but still doesnt provide good, quality content every time.

Generated articles are still sometimes unrelated to your keyword, and don’t make sense. Articles in many cases start good but end on entirely other topic or mix topics.

Often wrong information will be stated. This can be easily seen in product reviews that have various specifications, etc.

It all depends on the sub-keywords. I managed to get in 70% cases quality content when i used adequate sub-keywords (there is video tutorial about this when you log to Article Forge account).

You still need to add a few adjustments and corrections to the text in most cases. I must admit that Article Forge 2.0 is way betetr now. I highly suggest you take 5-day trial option and see if Article Forge is something you would have use of.

If you want to check examples of the content generated by Article forge back in 2017, you can check this links EXAMPLE OLD1, EXAMPLE OLD2, EXAMPLE OLD3.


Article Forge Price

Currently, the price for Article Forge is $324 if you go with the annual plan or $77 if you decide to pay monthly. These are new prices.

Before, the price for Article Forge was $297 if you go with the annual plan or $47 if you decide to pay monthly. But it seems despite that on the official page there is new pricing when I created a new account for testing purposes, I was still presented with old pricing plans.

There’s a five day free trial for ArticleForge, but you do need to provide credit card information upfront. You will be billed after the trial expires if you don’t explicitly cancel.

You can also use the money-back guarantee within 30 days. So, you can get your refund immediately if you don’t find this website content writer tool worthy.

Be noted that the money-back guarantee works only if you used Article Forge to create less than ten articles.

Article Forge vs. SEO Content Machine

Article Forge is a web-based tool, and SEO Content Machine (check SEO Content Machine review) is software, which means it needs to be downloaded and installed.

SEO Content Machine (SCM) is on the market for a long time, while Article Forge is a new contender. Because of that, SEO Content Machine has far more features. Article Forge doesn’t have most options SEO Content Machine comes with.

    Though I pressume you cant go to some insane long articles
  • Bing or Google translate can be used
  • Content can come from online web sources (ezinearticles, articlebase, etc), articles on your hard drive, Article Builder or Big Content Search.
  • SEO Content Machine comes with a free spinner called soft spin
  • Autofill Magic, Bookmarks, FCS Network, GSA SER, HTML Article, Licorne AIO, Magic Submitter, No Hands SEO, Ranker X, SENuke, TurboWeb2.0 Submitter, Ultimate Demon, Chimp ReWriter, Spinner Chief, SpinRewriter, The Best Spinner, Article Builder, X-Spinner, Imgur, SpinnerBr, SistemaSpinnerBr, ArticleSpinnerFr, ESpinner, etc
  • SEO Content Machine can automatically solve simple reCaptcha events. The process is automatic, all it requires is that you have pre-purchased captcha breaking credits.
  • SCM is a multi-language content scraper and generator. It can scrap Google search results in any region/language and extract content from those listings. You have a choice of 48 different language choices.
  • The article creator has a special junk filter box that you can use to make sure that content contains a keyword -or- that content doesn’t contain a spam word
  • 5-day trial
  • You can use the money back guarantee within 30 days
  • Monthly $27, Quarterly $57, Annual $120, Perpetual $197


With SCM, you might be overwhelmed with all the features when you first start. Article Forge is more straightforward, with no learning curve.

Both tools provide generated content of the same quality though you have more freedom in SCM to improve the outcome of received content.

SCM is way cheaper than Article Forge. If you consider all those aspects, I would recommend you to get the SEO Content Machine. If non of those two mentioned tools if what you need, then check Kontent Machine which is another website content writer. For more info, check Kontent Machine review.

You can even use Anyword, 10Web Assistant or Jasper AI. Those are copywriting tools that use artificial intelligence to generate content. For more info, you can check 10Web Assistant review, Anyword review and Jasper AI review.


Article Forge Review Final Words | Worthy Website Content Writer?

In the age of automation, content generating tools and spinning programs are in demand. The users are increasingly looking for better and improved versions.

Article Forge combines snippets from multiple related articles into one post. However, the articles lack a cohesive intro, body, and summary progression.

Very often, content created using Article Forge is not related to keyword put or jumps to different topics. This is not strange as the content is generated from various articles scraped from The Web.

To me, it seems their algorithm needs more changes and improvements as Article Forge still doesn’t have human understanding and touch as they advertise.

Article Forge 2.0 definitely generates better content which can be used on website. But anybody who says that the articles generated by Article Forge require absolutely no changes or corrections is blind or lying.

I do like that it has the option to add relevant titles, images, and videos. Unfortunately, it all depends on the topic if Article Forge will find and add suitable images or video.

I recommend you give it a try using the 5-day trial option. Let me know in the comments below if you tried Article Forge or know better website content writer tool.

  1. Hii,
    lots of good information in this article, but I have a question.
    Does it really good in comparison with ChatGPT.


  2. The information you have shared in this article about article forge is amazing. As an SEO analyst i have tried lot’s of AI content writer tools and found this tool is one of the best in all those tools.

  3. Hi Kasa,
    Thank you for this review. I see Article Forge is now version 4.0. Do you have any experience with it? I’m looking for the best (= best writing for a low price) writer for my recipe blog – something that can write about the recipe and ingredients, etc.
    Do you have any recommendations????

  4. Ok you got me Kasa. I will try this tool but to be honest, i doubt it will be able to generate good content because of the niche i will use it for. I will get it thru your reflink. I’m interested into the API feature but like i said, i think i will have to check outthe content it generates first, before i actually add it to the site.
    I’m testing a new tool, yivewriter. I was lucky enough to get the lifetime deal at 397$. I think they have raised the price now (if it’s still available). It’s far from being ready but they are working hard on it.
    Anyways, content will ALWAYS be a problem i guess. CHEERS!

    1. Hi Andre,

      Tools like Article Forge are not perfect and results will depend. They are far from replacing people when it comes to generating content.

  5. Indepth article, no doubt about it!
    In my opinion though AI tools are not yet ready for the cognitive part of human intelligence. What I write is based on knowledge gained with experience.

  6. Article forge is the very best tool for creating plenty of completely unique content very rapidly. Thank you so much for review about this tool.

  7. Hi, Thank you for explaining in brief about the benefits of article forge. I was skeptical to buy the tool, however after reading this blog post of yours. I Will consider buying it whenever I am within my budget. Thank you and my best wishes on your blog.

  8. I had come across this article and purchased articleforge. To be honest my website is not big but has enough to use 500 to 750 words. I found that articleforge is very useful for me.
    In one word, worth it!

    1. I see many sharing their experience with Article Forge that is positive. Glad to see it. I was a little skeptical at the beginning when this tool just came out but seems that they are improving the tool with each update.

  9. it is actually a VERY GOOD TOOL, especially for low-tier content. You will have to run it on Grammarly premium and do some fixing, but still, it takes way less time to write everything by yourself. Sometimes you need to be specific to get results – Like I searched wedding bands(musicians) and article came back as wedding bands(ornaments.)

    However, if you use this right and want to work on bulk articles where quality is low-to-average the tool does wonders for you.

    You can even get a lot of information that you can use as research material and write your content.

    Overall I recommend this with 5 STARS!

    1. Hi Sohail,

      Thank you for sharing your experience with Article Forge. I agree with you. It is very good for low-tier content but you will need to do some content fixing.

  10. Just I purchased its paid version… and has started posted content on our blog for information purpose only, now waiting for results from google.

  11. Great review. Thank you for taking the time. Are there any content generators that you feel are better, and, therefore, worth looking at.

    1. I am not sure that there is an article writer tool that provides significant better results. If I would choose one, from those I heard of and used, I would pick Article Forge.

  12. I have purchased a paid version of the article forge 2.0 and able to find some content within a minute. Now I am waiting for results, either it works or not.
    I knew, creating original content is a good SEO habit, someone convinced me to buy and I go through it.
    Thank you for the amazing information!
    Keep it up.

  13. Your review was the best I’ve seen on the internet so far. I’m looking for ways to automate content and SCM seems to be the best option at the moment, in addition to being cheaper.

  14. I am using an article forge 2.0 and I am shocked to see the results, no plagiarism and over 50% usable articles. I have created a website with an article forge content and applied for Google Adsense. Let see what will happen. I will update this comment once I get any reply from Adsense.

    1. I would agree that 50 – 60% of articles generated with Article Forge are usable. Thanks for sharing your experience in using Article Forge.

    2. Viney Bhatia, Thanks for sharing your experience. So have you got Google Adsence Approval on your website by content written by Article Forge.

  15. I highly recommend not using this product OR dealing with the company. The product is pretty bad, we spent more time fixing the articles generated than it takes to create an article from scratch. I tried the free trial, and attempted to cancel before the trial ended. However, in the account settings where there’s supposed be a link to “Cancel”, the link doesn’t work (how convenient…). I then emailed them several times, messaged them on Facebook and Twitter, and have gotten ZERO response. I was billed $247 and had to work with my bank and Visa to get the charge returned to me, and marked them as fraud. Buyer beware, stay away.

    1. Hi Brandon,

      Thank you for sharing your experience. I agree that you need to spend to much time correcting generated articles. The quality is not good.

  16. Is there any limitations. May I know How Many articles can be provided for the cost of $47 per month ???

  17. Stefan Andonov

    They tried to charge me for the free trial on the 5th day, not happy at all from them, they seem like a scam

    1. They are not a scam you don’t need to be afraid of that. But are you sure they attempted to charge you before the trial ended?

      1. I’m in the same situation. They offered a 5 day free trial and required billing info. I put my info in and I want to end the free trial but cannot without paying the full $47/month in full. There is no “free trial” + free cancellation.

        1. That was not the case when I tested the tool. That is not legal. If this happens you can easily make payment reversal via PayPal or credit card.

  18. Hello!

    very great articles! Actually, Articles Forge don’t answer any email and support.
    Are you still using it ? in 2019, what is the best tool for generate content ?

    Thanks and have a pretty good day!

  19. I personally find article spinner or forge tools useless. There is a reason we are into blogging whether it is our main job or a side hustle. Thank you for this article. Now I can sleep peacefully since I was planning to purchase it.

    1. Yes, in current state content generators still dont provide content which you would like to put on your live website without manual corrections.

  20. Very useful review. I was intending yo use article forge since long. a quality review was very much needed. Thanks kasa for this review.

  21. Thank you ,Kasa.
    Useful review.Thank you for sharing.I have one question -have you tried Kontent machine?I’m planning to buy creation article software SEO Content machine is better than Kontent Machine?

  22. Awesome review! very helpful

    In the league of content creating tools worth reviewing, I think you should take a look at Articoolo. It’s a fairly new and promising tool. Would like to know what you think about it.

    1. Glad you liked review. I have heard about Articoolo but I personally think their service is too expensive compared to Article Forge, SEO Content Machine and Kontent Machine while quality is on same level.

  23. Great review. Thank you for taking the time. Are their any content generators that you feel are better, and, therefore, worth looking at.

    I notice WordAI are due to release version 4, so it will be interesting to see what they come up with. Hopefully, you will be able to sign up for a trial and review that too.

    1. Hi Jools,

      I intend to check and review SEO Content Machine and Kontent Machine as they are top competitors to Article Forge. For now, I didn’t test them so don’t know how they perform.

      I received an email about WordAi release of version 4. I have already compared Spin Rewriter and WordAi. Looking at the new version of WordAi I don’t think they improved the algorithm. As I can see they just increase spinning speed.

    2. Great Information and detailed article about article forge. I have a doubt that is it able to replace human Content writer.

      And how much it is useful for us.

      BTW, you have explained everything in easy to understand language.

      Thanks for sharing such informative content
