Great tool, plugin, or service to automatically spin articles, posts or content is hard to find. Marketers know that they only need two things to succeed online. The first thing is content, and the second is to create value. In this Spin Rewriter review, I will show what this tool offers, how it compares to other article spinning tools, and what are its pros & cons.
A couple of years ago, when Google unleashed the Penguin update, things started to change. It was mainly targeted at penalizing unreasonable SEO methods such as frivolous hyperlink structure practices and putting high-quality content in the first plan.
All of a sudden, quality was at the center, and a lot of sites got penalized. Since then, Google has made it clear that it will continue concentrating on quality. But let’s face it. Writing content can be time-consuming.
If you have one site, then that is not a problem. But when you have 5, 6, or more, it can be hard to follow with fresh content. You can always go to iWriter or other services which provide article writing. But it is hard to find a good writer.
SpinRewriter vs Spinner Chief vs The Best Spinner vs WordAi
Below I have compared the four most popular spinners (SpinnerChief, TBS, SpinRewriter, and WordAi) based on features they provide for the price. I have not taken into account the quality of their spinning content results.
For more information about WordAi, you can check the WordAi review. If you need a WordPress article rewriter & auto spinner plugin, you can check my post where I have reviewed one interesting plugin which claims to provide readable results.

How To Automatically Spin Articles?
If you have few affiliate-oriented sites for which there is just no time to write or say something that wasn’t already said by hundreds of other people on various sites, you might reach to some tool to automatically spin articles.
The spinning software allows you to input text (like an article or blog post) and then create randomly generated variations by replacing selected words and phrases with synonyms.
Some spinning software also have the ability to rearrange parts of a sentence or reorganize the order of sentences within paragraphs.
The most sophisticated spinning software tools also let you ‘spin’ within ‘spins’ (‘multi-level spinning‘), meaning you can combine all of these possibilities to create vastly different variations of the same text.
You probably now think: “Can’t I just make different versions of the same article myself instead of paying software to spin content for me?” You could, but it would take you a long time to create variations that were different enough from each other to make it worth all your effort.
When using a tool like Spin Rewriter, all you do is click spin, and you can download up to 1000 variations of your article, each typically containing between 85% and 94% unique wording.
Spin Rewriter claims that it can do all of these levels of spinning and produce human-readable unique content. I decided to take the opportunity of a 5-day trial and see if Spin Rewriter is really worth the time and money.
Spin Rewriter Review – How It Works?
Spin Rewriter is a web-based article spinning software released in 2011 by Aaron Sustar of SmileyTech Solutions. Spin Rewriter is currently one of the smarter content spinning software available with several advanced features and functions and has received great reviews since its release.
Spin Rewriter is a powerful tool that you can use to spin articles automatically. It uses algorithms to completely revise the articles into a copy that no one has ever posted before.
Spin Rewriter rewrites content on paragraph, word, and sentence level. It also turns sentences around and makes sure that only appropriate synonyms are used. It is a very popular tool, and you will surely find many praises if you check Spin Rewriter reviews.
When signing up for a trial, you will be asked to put billing details. You will not be billed anything until five days of trial had passed. If you are not happy with the product, just cancel before five days of the trial pass, and you will not be charged.
You can spin single or multiple articles. If you want to spin multiple articles, you need to select the “Rewrite Multiple Articles” option on the home page control panel.
Then you can copy/paste articles you wish to rewrite or upload them as text or zip files. Pick spinning settings, and click the “Rewrite Multiple Articles” button. Spin Rewriter will do all of the work and, after finished, show you freshly spun articles.
Rewriting The Article
Making use of Spin Rewriter will just take one click. All you have to do is paste the content you wish to be rewritten. In this case, I am going to rewrite a single article.
You can just use default options and click “Rewrite Article,” but I recommend playing with the Settings option and see which features get you the best results.
Clicking the “Settings” button at the bottom left, you will be presented with three tabs with various options, greatly impacting how the generated article will look. Options are Sentences & Paragraphs, Words & Phrases, and Advanced Settings.
Here is an explanation of options found under the Sentences & Paragraphs tab:
(1) Automatically rewrite sentences – When you enable this option, Spin Rewriter analyzes entire sentences instead of only analyzing individual words and phrases. Then it determines the parts of sentences that can be expressed differently or omitted.
When Spin Rewriter finds a sentence that can be changed, it will keep the original sentence and add a brand-new sentence with a changed part to the generated spintax.
(2) Automatically rewrite entire paragraphs – When you enable this option, Spin Rewriter analyzes the role of individual sentences within each paragraph of your original article.
When Spin Rewriter determines that a paragraph can be expressed differently by using changed or omitted sentences. It will keep the original paragraph and add a brand-new paragraph with changed sentences to the generated spintax.
(3) Automatically write new paragraphs and summaries – When you enable this option, Spin Rewriter analyzes the meaning of individual paragraphs within your original article.
When Spin Rewriter discovers that additional information can be extracted from your article’s existing paragraphs, it will summarize the findings in 2-3 new sentences. It will then append those new sentences as an additional paragraph to the end of your article. This new paragraph will be optional in the generated spintax.
(4) Automatically change the structure of phrases and sentences – When you enable this option, Spin Rewriter analyzes the actual relationship between words that make up individual phrases and sentences.
When Spin Rewriter determines that an individual sentence structure can be changed, it will keep the original sentence and add a brand-new sentence to the generated spintax. The same goes for phrases that can be expressed differently.
The next tab is Words & Phrases. Here you can choose how much readable or unique you want to generate content to be. If you choose unique, the readable option will “suffer.” But if you choose readable, then the content will not be as much unique.
You can also select keywords that are protected, meaning Spin Rewriter will not replace them with synonyms. The last tab is Advanced Settings.
Enabling HyperSpeed will decrease the time needed to rewrite the article. But if your computer isn’t powerful enough, you might experience browser unresponsiveness, or even browser crashes when HyperSpeed is enabled.
After that, you can click the “Rewrite Article” button. You will then see a progress bar while Spin Rewriter does its job.
It only takes few seconds for Spin Rewriter to do its magic, so you will not need to wait long.
Select Words & Phrases
In the second step, you can add few manual touches before generating rewritten version of your content. Here you can click on words that are colored blue and select which synonym you wish to be used. You’ll find Quick Buttons just above the list of synonyms when viewing a particular word.
TOP button selects all reliable (TOP) synonyms of the current word or phrase that meet the readability preference that you have chosen: more readable, recommended, or more unique.
ALL button selects ALL available synonyms of the current word or phrase. APPLY TO ALL button applies the currently selected synonyms of the current word or phrase to all occurrences of this word or phrase in your entire article. This feature is also smart enough to pluralize or capitalize the freshly-applied synonyms when required.
When viewing a list of synonyms, you can quickly jump to the previous or next word by using the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard.
When you are finished, you can click the “Save for Later” option or the “Finalize Article” button, which will take you to the last step.
Generate Unique Articles
In this last step, the article gets automatically fixed in terms of proper usage of the a and an indefinite articles, punctuation, and grammatical details. All of these automated adjustments make generated articles readable.
By clicking on the “Settings” button, you have more options to further refine the content generated.
(1) Never use original words when synonyms are available – When you enable this feature, Spin Rewriter doesn’t use any of the original words and phrases if there are synonyms available. Thus, all generated articles will have very few words in common with the original article — which means they will be much more unique.
(2) Enrich articles with headings, bullet points, etc. – When you enable this feature, Spin Rewriter will automatically detect various headings and lists inside each of your generated unique articles.
When viewing your generated unique articles in “Visual” mode, you will notice that headings are now automatically displayed in a larger, bolder font — with your article’s primary heading being the most prominent one.
Itemized lists will also be formatted in a visually pleasing manner, complete with bullet points and appropriate margins between individual items. This feature brings you another step closer to publishing your generated spun articles on your websites with no further editing required.
(3) Intelligently reorder paragraphs and lists – Spin Rewriter can analyze your article and then intelligently reorder the paragraphs and unordered lists when generating new, unique versions of your article.
Paragraphs: Spin Rewriter will never change the position of titles, subtitles, or questions that are usually followed by answers. This means your article will remain readable even after its paragraphs have been shuffled.
Lists: Spin Rewriter will also randomize the order of bullet points in unordered lists. It will, however, preserve the exact order of list items in ordered (numbered) lists.
(4) Convert line-breaks to HTML tags – By default, Spin Rewriter generates unique articles in a plain-text format that is 100% compatible with WordPress and other platforms. This means your new articles are ready to be used with any WYSIWYG editor, e.g., published on your WordPress websites.
You can even add images (from Pixabay) or videos (YouTube videos) to content.
In this step, you can also choose the preferred spintax format, compare spun articles to original article side-by-side, preview different unique variations of spun articles, and even export those variations as text files. Those variations of the spun articles can be run through Copyscape to make sure it’s unique.
In step three, you can select the article’s category and update the archived name of the article. This lets you stay organized and able to find articles in the Archive section at a later time.
Archive of all finished articles is always available by going to the “Archive” option in the top menu. Inside the archive, you can create new categories and edit existing ones, delete or export multiple articles at once, and see all of your finished spun articles.
When ready, click on “Generate a Unique Article Button” to see your spun content.
Spin Rewriter can take the unique article that you just generated and publish it on any of your WordPress websites. You can even schedule your posts to appear at a future time that suits you best.
Spin Rewriter WordPress Plugin
Spin Rewriter also offers WordPress plugin, but it needs to be purchased separately. The price is $47 ($37 if you purchase it once you sign-up for Spin Rewriter as part of upsell).
Once purchased, it can be used on an unlimited number of sites. The plugin comes with four useful features for creating unique content:
- Automatically spin & republish old posts – When posts reach a certain age (e.g., 8 days, or 4 weeks, or 3 months), the plugin will use Spin Rewriter’s ENL Semantic Spinning technology to spin them and republish them as brand new posts.
- Automatically fetch new unique posts – Plugin will find relevant articles for your sites, completely on auto-pilot. It will then spin and publish those relevant articles as brand new posts. You can pick how many new posts you want to add automatically.
- Spin posts right inside WordPress – Let’s you rewrite WordPress posts and pages straight from the WordPress admin panel.
- Connect websites – Your websites will automatically appear inside your Spin Rewriter account. With full support for one-click remote posting straight from your Spin Rewriter account. The one-click remote-posting feature allows you to schedule a date and time when you want new posts to appear on your sites.
Testing Spin Rewriter
I have tested rewriting content using Spin Rewriter for quite some time. Sometimes you get quality, readable content, and sometimes content is not something you will want to publish anywhere without many corrections.
It all depends on your settings you enable when preparing to rewrite content. Depending on that settings, you can get more or less unique content and more or less correcting.
EXAMPLE 1: I will take content from one of my published posts and test Spin Rewriter. Be noted that I will not do any manual selecting of words and phrases under Step 2 as I want to test Spin Rewriter as a solution where I have to do as little work as possible.
I have enabled only “Automatically rewrite sentences” and “Automatically change the structure of phrases and sentences” under the Sentences & Paragraphs tab. Under the Words & Phrases tab I have set the “Most readable” option (I recommend using it as content will be readable far more than on other settings), and “Automatically protect all capitalized words” which is the setting I recommend you always enable.
Also, I added some words under protected keywords like the word “theme” as I noticed Spin Rewriter rewrites it as the word “style” which doesn’t make sense in this context.
Under the Advanced Settings tab I have enabled HyperSpeed and Auto One-Click Rewrite, which I recommend you always enable. HyperSpeed is useful as it significantly decreases waiting time for Spin Rewriter to spin content. Waiting time depends on article length.
Here is generated article based on mentioned settings compared with the original article (you can click to generate a new article as many times as you want). The article received on the first try is not bad. It is not amazing either. But few tweaks and it could be useful. But it is too similar to the original. So in the next example, I will turn on more settings to see what I will get for the same article.
EXAMPLE 2: In this example, I will use Spin Rewriter recommended settings. This means enabling “Automatically rewrite sentences”, “Automatically change the structure of phrases and sentences,” and “Automatically rewrite entire paragraphs.”
In the Words & Phrases tab and Advanced tab, I will leave the same settings as in Example 1. As the article received was almost the same as one I got in Example 1 I decided, under Step 3, to enable all settings (check under Generate Unique Articles section if you forgot what those settings are). Here is the article that I got.
The received article is not bad, but still result needs editing. It is less similar to the original but also content doesn’t have the correct flow which is because I enabled reorder paragraphs and lists option. So, I recommend disabling that.
EXAMPLE 3: For this example, I will test a longer article with data, numbers, and some expert terms to see how Spin Rewriter will work with data. I will leave the same settings as in Example 2. Only the “reorder paragraphs and lists” option will be disabled.
I have used financial-related article found on the Internet. Here is part of the generated article. There are good parts but there are also parts that don’t make sense. It would probably help if I excluded some keywords from rewriting.

Spin Rewriter Review Conclusion
If you are writing quality content for your website, you know just how long it can take to write a new, unique article. That’s where article spinners can be useful. When I first heard Spin Rewriter, I was skeptical. I had tried spinning software before and was never pleased with the results.
There are lots of reviews about Spin Rewriter, and most users usually say that you shouldn’t rely on this tool entirely. And I agree. You will need to edit the spun content often.
When I tested version 5.0, I wasn’t pleased with how this tool rewrites provided content. It was too much manual correction involved. I have monitored and tested each Spin Rewriter version, and I must admit that each version is better. Spinning is significantly improved, and many features have been added while keeping the affordable price.
But Spin Rewriter is not there yet. The generated content still needs much manual corrections. Even if you disable most of options and select most readable option, there will still be some parts of rewritten content that you will need to manualy check and correct.
Amount of corrections and quality of content depends. If you have article with many niche related terms, expert words, or article with scientific data, then you should definitely skip using Spin Rewriter on that kind of articles. But if you have simple articles where there is not much room for Spin Rewriter to make mistakes, then results might not be bad.
In a world moving from manual work to automated work, article-spinning software is something many would gladly use. But I don’t think article spinning tools are even close to replacing humans.
I hope this Spin Rewriter review was useful. I highly recommend you can make use of the five days trial offer and test out Spin Rewriter yourself before making any final decision.
