Add new categories on-the-fly

Ever since 2014, our users were always able to create an unlimited number of categories to sort their articles under inside their Archive of spun articles.

Making good use of this categorization feature helps our users keep all of their projects neat and organized. Which is pretty sweet. 😃

But until very recently, our users still had to deal with a somewhat awkard UX hurdle when it came to putting a brand-new spun article into a specific category.

When our users were done spinning an article (which means they reached Step 3 of the process), they could easily sort their new article into any of their pre-existing categories with two clicks. So far, so good!

However, if our users wanted to create a brand-new category that would hold their newest article, they couldn't do that from Step 3. Instead, they had to first go to the Archive > Edit Categories > Add Category, and then come back to Step 3 to sort their newest article into this brand-new category.

And while this is perfectly doable, it's not ideal. And here at Spin Rewriter, we always want to provide our users with an ideal user experience.

So, good news: Now you can also create a brand-new category on-the-fly straight from Step 3, as part of the process of selecting a category to file each of your spun articles under. It still takes just a couple of clicks, despite now being much more powerful than before.

Go check it out — and enjoy! 🤩

Tutorial: How to spin articles manually (words and phrases)

Today we're bringing you yet another video tutorial! 📹

Spin Rewriter offers fully automated article rewriting through our powerful One Click Rewrite option — but we're not just about that!

Our WordPress Plugin just got a new feature!

You might already be familiar with the official Spin Rewriter WordPress Plugin.

We've designed it with a single goal in mind: It helps you keep your WordPress websites full of high-quality and unique content at all times. It does this by carefully tracking all of your existing posts on your websites, and once any of your posts reaches a specific age — say two weeks, or six months — our plugin will automatically spin that post (using Spin Rewriter's ENL Semantic Spinning technology) and re-publish it as a brand new post.

This way your websites are always updated with fresh and relevant content, without you having to lift a finger. That's the combined power of Spin Rewriter and our WordPress plugin. 👍

And it gets even better than that:
This morning we pushed out a pretty cool upgrade.
😃

Everyone using our WordPress plugin can now choose to ONLY automatically spin and re-publish posts that belong to certain Categories. This gives our customers much more control over which content should be re-used automatically by our WordPress plugin in the future, and which posts should NOT get automatically spun and re-published.

In addition to this upgrade, we have also vastly improved the UX of choosing which individual posts NOT to spin and re-publish automatically in the future.

If you already have our WordPress plugin installed, you will be prompted to upgrade to this latest version automatically.

And if you absolutely cannot wait for these new improvements, you can always update your plugin manually from your WordPress admin panel by going to Dashboard > Plugins > Spin Rewriter and clicking the "Check for updates" link.

Enjoy! 😎

Tutorial: How to use our famous One Click Rewrite option

It's time for yet another detailed video tutorial! 📹

As you might know, a very powerful part of Spin Rewriter is its famous One Click Rewrite option.

You can simply click one button and Spin Rewriter will do ALL of the work for you: It will analyze the meaning of all of the words and phrases, prepare a list of synonyms for each of them, and then automatically enable only the most suitable synonyms that work best in a given context.

One Click Rewrite is extremely easy to use. However, if you're looking for more control over this fully automated process, it does come with a few settings.

And today's video explains every single setting of Spin Rewriter's One Click Rewrite process:


Watch the video above and you'll become a true master of One Click Rewriting.

Updated API library: PHP

As we're getting ready to unveil Spin Rewriter 12 on October 6th, we're also working on things that we know are going to make our fellow developers happy. 🤓

As you know, Spin Rewriter comes with a really powerful API. What this means is, it's extremely easy for developers to integrate the power of Spin Rewriter's ENL Semantic Spinning technology directly into 3rd party software products.

These integrations are an absolute breeze because we offer working code samples in a number of popular programming languages: PHP, Python, JavaScript and C#.

And it's not just about our working code samples — we also offer entire libraries that already contain 99% of the code you need to write to get your own Spin Rewriter API integration up and running.

So — this brings me to today's good news! 🤩

We've just updated our PHP SDK library (as well as our collection of working PHP code samples) to make it even easier for developers to integrate Spin Rewriter into their own products.

Feel free to check it out now — the updated PHP library is already live on the website — as we can't wait to see what you create with the power of our API! 💪

Happy 10th Birthday, Spin Rewriter!

🥳 Today it's time to celebrate — Spin Rewriter just turned 10 years old! 🥳

Spin Rewriter's 10th birthday

10 years! I genuinely cannot believe it's been 10 years since we launched the first version of Spin Rewriter all the way back on September 14th, 2011.

Well... "we" launched. Of course at the time we were a pretty small team. It was me, myself and I. 😆

Looking back, 2011 was a truly magical time. I genuinely had a blast creating that first version of Spin Rewriter — and to tell you the truth, I couldn't have imagined what lay ahead even in my wildest dreams.

The first response to Spin Rewriter on that September 14th, 2011 launch day was absolutely incredible and let me know I was onto something — but everything that's happened since those humble beginnings has truly surpassed all of our wildest expectations.

🤯

Over these wonderful past 10 years, our team has grown and grown. We've kept innovating and working really hard for 10 years to be where we are today — and our 181,000+ users have rewarded us by loving Spin Rewriter, sending us incredible feedback and getting amazing SEO results with it.

And right now, as I'm writing this blog post, I genuinely couldn't be more excited about what the future holds for Spin Rewriter. It's going to get really exciting really fast, too — as we'll be launching version 12 on October 6th!

So here's to Spin Rewriter: Happy 10th Birthday! 🎂

And to all of our incredible customers:
We're doing all of this for YOU — because you guys are the BEST! 🍻

Spin Rewriter 12 is coming SOON...

It's time for another BIG announcement:

🎉 Spin Rewriter 12 goes live on October 6th — just a month from today! 🎉

...and here's what we've got planned for version 12:

  • We've worked crazy hard on another big leap forward in ENL Semantic Spinning technology, especially in regards to spinning (multi-word) phrases... and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out! 🤩
  • We've performed a manual review of our synonym database (with over 650 hours invested) to further refine the synonym suggestions our algorithm is making for words, phrases, sentence order changes, paraphrasing, etc.
  • We've further improved the user experience (UX) as a result of extensive in-person user testing that our UX team has been focusing on this year.
  • We've improved our famous on-boarding process that guides our newest users by the hand, all the way to their first finished high-quality spun article.
  • We'll be rolling out a revamped collection of tutorial videos that explain every last feature of Spin Rewriter and turn our users into certified content-generating ninjas.
  • We've made our integration with outside (3rd party) royalty-free media providers even more seamless.
  • And we'll be rolling out two more secret features that are GAME-CHANGERS when it comes to high-quality, unique content.

Bottom line: Spin Rewriter version 12 launch is shaping up to be an insanely exciting launch for all our users. 👏

And of course — If you are interested in promoting the upcoming Spin Rewriter 12 launch, our JV page is ready and waiting for you right here...

We're counting down the days until Spin Rewriter version 12 goes live on October 6th... precisely one month to go. ⏳

There are some truly exciting times ahead! 😎

Our WordPress Plugin - improved

You know how Spin Rewriter also offers an official WordPress Plugin that lets you make sure all of your websites are always chock-full of unique, high quality content?

Well, we just pushed out a pretty cool update for our plugin. 🤩

From now on, even if our users end up installing the WordPress Plugin on a misconfigured server, the plugin will do its very best to power through while not showing any unnecessary PHP notices — only warnings and errors, as expected.

We've also packaged some UX improvements into this upgrade, and — much more importantly — laid the groundwork for a much bigger upgrade that's coming in the following weeks... so stay tuned. 😃

Archive made even friendlier

A brand new update is here, our first one for August! 👍

You're undoubtedly familiar with the Archive section of your Spin Rewriter account — it's where you can find all of your spun articles.

But the question is: What happens when a user has zero spun articles to display? What do we show in the Archive when a user is still brand-new to Spin Rewriter and they haven't created any articles just yet?

So far, in this case the Archive was simply... empty. If there were no articles to show, the Archive was more or less blank. Which is technically okay, but it certainly isn't as friendly as it could be. 😬

So we've decided to improve this aspect — by adding a wonderful "empty state" graphic element to the Archive page when there are no articles to display.

You can check out this visual / UX upgrade below:

Improved Archive page with an Empty State graphic

At some point, most new users will check out their Archive page — and seeing a completely blank Archive ("before" in the screenshot above) feels a bit unfinished.

In comparison, seeing the lovely "empty state" graphic ("after" in the screenshot above) feels much friendlier and encourages the user to spin their first article.

And this is what we're all about here at Spin Rewriter. 😃

Making users feel right at home and helping them spin articles — because as long as our users are happy, we are happy. Enjoy this latest update! 👍
