What is Spintax?

Learn about how spun articles are written using special spintax symbols

Spintax comes from the word “spinning syntax.” It is the format used by article spinner softwares as well as article submission sites which produce or use spun articles.

For example, the sentence:

“The most commonly used acne treatments in the U.S are over the counter acne medications. “

Could become:

The most {commonly used|popular|widely used|common|frequently used} acne treatments in the U.S. {are|tend to be|are usually|are generally|usually are} over the counter acne medications.

The curly braces encompass the texts which can be chosen randomly, and could result into:

The most popular acne treatments in the U.S. tend to be over the counter acne medications.

The widely used acne treatments in the U.S. are usually over the counter acne medications.

The frequently used acne treatments in the U.S. usually are over the counter acne medications.

And so on.

The resulting or spun articles have texts from the original article randomly changed while retaining the overall meaning.

Submitted spun articles will look unique to search engines.

How do we know spintax is unique?

To get the best chance of having our content picked up by search engines, our articles need to be unique.

Articles are spun by choosing synonyms and these synonyms come from a spinning Thesaurus.

We check the output of our spun articles to see how unique the re-writing process was.

There are several tools on the internet that scan and check our articles to see if any part of the article already exists on the Web.

Parts of our article that come up as duplicates, require manual hand spinning to fix.

These tools are also called plagiarism software checkers.

One of the most popular ways to check our articles for uniquness is to use Copyscape.

How unique is unique enough?

Unique vs the internet

Any copy of a spun article should ideally produce an article that is 100% unique according to Copyscape.

This uniqueness affects how likely a search engine will be to cache and rank your page.

For uniqueness checked by Copyscape, we want it to be 70% and higher. 100% is the best of course, but we can be realistic as even new sites that quote 50% of their content get indexed.

Unique vs itself

Each spun article produces an article variation.

Depending on the complexity of the spin, there is a mathematical limit to how many unique variations your spun article can produce without duplication.

This uniqueness directly affects how many times you can keep re-submitting the same spun article before parts of the same article are duplicated.

For uniqueness between article variations for the one article, we want to make it as high as possible by increasing the complexity of our spins.

Making spins super unique

Simply, to increase the total number of variations of our spun article can produce, we want to make our spins complex… by adding depth.

Eg: {Hello|Hi} World

1 level spin. Not complex.

Eg {{Hello|Hi}| World | {Good|Great} day}

2 level spin. We have more than doubled the number of possible variations by increasing the depth of the spin!

You can chain spins and make them infinitely deep.

However in practice, you will stop around 3-4 levels deep.

Also overly spun articles can crash some software submission programs.
