Text Spinning App For Mac OSX : EZ Content Rewriting

Do you do article marketing on a Mac? Here's a handy little spintax editing utility available from the Apple App Store online: Article Spinner 2



Color coding of spintax brackets can really help identify problems in flat or nested spun content. Although it includes a dictionary of synonyms, it's VERY basic and rudimentary - but still useful for inserting word substitutions when manual spinning.

The ability to preview - then post a spun variant is handy. Article Spinner 2 for OSX includes the ability to publish live or as a draft to self-hosted WP blogs or free wordpress.com blogs.

Video Marketing On A Mac - What R U Waiting For

It's never to late to try a Mac video marketing strategy - even if you're late to the game. The SEO and web traffic potential is just too compelling to pass up. And it's value for Brand building and Name Recognition shouldn't be underestimated. In a world where ever-more people can't be bothered to READ anymore, they are increasingly being engaged by video.

Not every Apple user is natural born speaker or actor. But using your Macintosh to create a video doesn't necessarily imply you need to be in front of a webcam if don't want to be. Some folks are infinitely more comfortable just narrating a slideshow behind the scenes, or creating animated explainer videos to visually represent you.

Your Apple computer is an excellent companion that excels for digital video creation and has ever since Apple introduced the first FireWire enabled DV iMacs 15+ years ago. The current selection of video capture and editing apps, screen recording, voice-over and soundtrack audio tools for OSX is staggering.

But beyond your Macintosh - the growth of cloud-based video tools you can access with your Safari, Firefox Mac or Chrome browser is exploding. After dabbling with some explainer tools like RenderForest and Wideo - I've recently been experimenting with VidioDek which is letting me create marketing videos on a Mac in just minutes. With proper long-tail keyword research, getting the videos ranking on Page 1 of Google search results for moderate to low-competition keywords has been brain dead easy.

Best Online Article Spinner For Mac Gets New Features

Mac Article Spinning Software
One of the best online article spinning apps for Mac (or PC) users just got a recent update to Version 6.0 and key new features. My recommendation for the best article spinner app for Mac is SpinRewriter, a cloud based SaaS - Sofware as a Service app that lives up on cloud servers and works great in any Mac OSX web browser: Safari, Chrome or FireFox for Mac.

Last year the update to version 5 brought some really deep sentence rewriting features to completely rewrite sentences very logically. There was also the abilitly to reorder and spin bulleted list items or rearrange paragraphs. Another key feature in v5 the addition of the BigContent.com PLR article database so you could get started with a new article from the database within seconds. The ability to search for and insert YouTube videos was a nice addition.

Version 6 of Spin Rewriter continues the effort to be the best online article spinner with even more refinements. Visually, the web interface has been revamped to be more clean and open - with online spinning Help tips now available for every feature and function.

Some other new additions for upgraded Gold Members are:

1. An Android and iOS app to spin articles on handheld devices. Perhaps most valuable to Apple or PC tablet users who do internet marketing on the go .

2. Integrated Article Writing Service: You can get up to 50 free articles per month written FOR you - and sent to your SpinRewriter archive for you to use as you please.

3. WordPress Publishing Integration: Long overdue - You can now send any article you've spun directly to any of your self-hosted WordPress blogs with just a click. There's also a spinning plug-in for your WordPress setup to spin content as you blog.

4. Virtual Assistant Access: Limited log-on for outsourcing assistants - who can spin for you but don't have access to your personal archive of spun content or Main account info.

In SEO and webmaster reviews, SpinRewriter gets Top-3 rankings of all the spinners out there. Only the very expensive WordAI Professional Edition is better - but too expensive for most internet marketers to afford. With the special launch promo, you can sign-up for a free 5 day trial - and then lock in SpinRewriter for only $77 a year or about $6 a month. Quite a bargain to leverage and re-purpose existing content into new website traffic generating articles and blog posts!

Build And Grow A Social Media Following Quicker, Faster, Cheaper

Please Dear Gawd, Like Me - Socially

Community based crowd-sourced sharing services like www.AddMeFast.com leverage the diverse power of its large user base to help you rapidly develop a fan following or share your URLs and content for you. Another popular service that I've been exploring is www.LinkCollider.com which similarly leverages the power of its many members to increase a social following really quickly or slow and steadily - free or at minimal cost.

I'm Your Biggest Fan - I'll Follow You Until You Love Me

If you've been searching for a strategy to quickly build up your social media account following, they're both worth a dabble. They're an easy method to rapidly develop your Twitter following or Facebook page fans, and get content shares on other popular social sharing sites.

I'm Cheap And I'm Easy

With services such as these, you are often given an initial amount of free sharing credits to help you get started. All of them operate on the principle of earning more free credits if you like or share or follow other’s links. That can be time-consuming and tedious, but it's workable for marketers on a shoestring budget.

Pay To Play - Be My Fan

For a somewhat more hands-off approach to gaining social authority or a fan base, you can optionally buy packages of credits. Purchasing credits and having others do the task for you eliminates cluttering up your own accounts or timelines with other people's stuff. Some internet marketers set up accounts and personas separate from their primary business accounts to keep these two worlds separate.

By using either approach you can quickly (or slowly and steadily) grow your following at many of the major social media sites such as FaceBook Twitter Tumblr Pinterest, Google+ MySpace etc. to name only a few. Most offer the option to control the daily limits of shares / likes for more of a steady drip feed than a rapid blast.

Social Strangers In The Night

Obviously, the (ahem) quality of these followers and fans can vary widely. For me, far too many aren't in the USA. Some might follow your account simply for the value of getting and earning their own sharing points, then dump you just as quick. With Twitter fan acquisition, it's all to common for some of them to UN-follow you shortly after earning their credits.

On the other hand, others will consciously and intentionally choose to follow you based on your niche and persona if what you're into aligns with theirs for a higher quality follower. Restricting fans to only come from specified Geo-targeted areas is wise (which you can do with AddMeFast). You not only save credits but get a better caliber of follower.

Miss Social Popularity Contest

So why even bother acquiring cheap or free 'friends'? In the early stages of developing and launching an emerging brand and persona it can help to kickstart the process and at least show some sort of reasonable, visible follower numbers while you can manually work to diligently cultivate a tightly focused and targeted following. It's also helpful when your popularity sags. Every social account, or email marketing list experiences some loss and attrition over time. Even with a great Twitter account, you'll have many unfollows as users continuously prune and refine their accounts. Services like these can get your trajectory growing again.

Quick Tip: For Twitter followers, try Twiends - Offer 2 or 3 credits and follow those offering 4 or more... That'll keep your follower to following ratio high.

Reaching Critical Mass

What sets these two above-mentioned services apart is at least they aren't bulk packages of FAKE followers that so many sell. At least you've got REAL people manually clicking your stuff regardless if their motivations -- and not a bulk buy of pre-made 'Real Looking' Zombie accounts for faux-following you to make your numbers look good. (And often HURT your engagement metrics!)

What I've found interesting is once you get X-Number-Of-Followers -- whether it's on Google+, FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn or wherever -- It starts to make a REAL difference in people starting to engage with your shares. I struggled with one Twitter persona for months naturally, organically, slowly and honestly trying to build a very targeted following of 500 that didn't interact. But using services like Add Me Fast and Link Collider (along with a few others) over 90 days, I got that account well past 1500+ and suddenly some degree of ENGAGEMENT started occurring regularly. Bottom line, if your social accounts aren't getting traction - you've got nothing to lose. Get agressive about building your following and things WILL improve.

Quick Review Of SpinRewriter v5.0 - Awesome New Spintax Generator Features

With the recent next-generation release of SpinRewriter version 5.0, one of the leading Mac browser friendly content spinners incorporates several new key features that decidedly take spintax code generation and unique article creation to a state-of-the-art standard. Here's some standout improvements:

+ The processing rate of text rewriting and spintax substitution has been enhanced dramatically. What used to take a handful or dozens of seconds is now down to just 1 or 2 seconds for the average article.

+ Users can choose to have the paragraph sections or lists in their generated posts intelligently rearranged automatically. Numbered lists where a specific sequence of steps is crucial will remain untouched. Unordered lists like this bulleted section of new Spin Rewriter 5 features can be automatically and intelligently rearranged for you without altering the article's readability or intent

+ An integrated and intelligent Grammar and Spelling Checker with one-click functions helps identify any imperfections in your original content and insure smooth readability in the final spun output.

+ Spin Rewrite 5 users have the option to fetch relevant seed articles for spinning directly from the Big Content Search database of PLR articles. You can keyword search their massive data bank of more than 100 thousand well-edited articles on nearly any topic. It's an excellent way to get a quick start on generating fresh website or blog content.

+ Subscribers can now peruse and quickly insert keyword-specific YouTube video content into the article you produce within seconds. You can make a selection from a handful of video clip thumbnails, and then opt to have, say, just one or two of them randomly placed within the final spun article code.

We are especially thrilled about the access to the Big Content Search article system. You might decide to simply retrieve and spin the articles as is. But you could also opt to find and incorporate just specific sentences or paragraphs into your own compositions for more extensive and lengthier in-depth articles which search engine appear to prefer.

We're also excited by the addition of YouTube video clip embedding to strive to help readers engage with the article more deeply, increase on-page time, and lower bounce rates. Despite the fact that keywords search and selection vids from thumbnails is quick and easy, whether the selected videos are genuinely the BEST ones to randomly incorporate can be a little iffy.

The addition of spell checking and grammar analysis is overdue. It will really help insure that the final spintax output is as satisfactory to your readers as it can be.

Lastly the overall speed improvements are dramatic. For long-time users of SpinRewriter you'll be amazed at how fast even lengthy, in-depth 1200, 1600+ word articles are processed! If you opt for 1-Click Rewrite, it just blazes through content in mere seconds. A 5 day free trial period is a great way to explore SpinRewriter 5's full feature set.

Domain Age As A Google Ranking Factor - Hopeless SEO

Take a look at the chart to your right. The Top 10 Google SERP positions for a technology product. The column highlighted in pink is the DA - Domain Age of sites that are currently appearing on Page 1 of Google search results. None of the search results in this example are less than 11 years old! Many queries are starting to look just like that: There's just no room on Page 1 for a newcomer to squeak in. You could follow ALL of Google's guidelines to a 'T' - and still never make it to the top 10. Ever.


In this case we're looking for not just a hard drive, not just an external hard drive, but a search for the 'best external hard drive FOR MAC' which puts it way out into a much less competitive and niche-y 6-word, medium-to-long-tail keyword space - and still the Top 10 is hopelessly locked in and reserved for only the most established and aged retailers and tech companies on the internet.

For those of you who once had successful, thriving sites - and handfuls of not dozen or hundreds of ranking keywords that used to make it onto page one - this is what you're up against. These well-aged domains have such an utter lock-in now, that getting shoved off onto Page 2 or worse has been utterly fatal to your traffic and your online business.

This chart shows historical search traffic for this particular site from SEMRush.com - And it's like 80% of ALL SITES on the internet since Google Panda and Penguin updates hit 1-2 years ago. It isn't just about traffic loss from sites getting 'punished'  - but parallels KEYWORD LOSS of ranking keywords in the Top 20 positions (which is what SEMRush tracks - the first 20 positions.)

Website after website displays graphs like this. Of the keywords that still rank - many are finding only their NAME / BRAND still ranks -- and any keywords ABOUT the nature or products or services of the site itself have been strangled out of relevance - and visibility.

The point I'm trying to make in this post is two-fold:

1. In its quest for 'Quality' search results, Google has really cranked up the dial on Domain Age to even get seen these days. The consolidation of power - and visibility - is drastically being reduced to the top entities on the web - and quite frankly 90% of the internet HAS in fact, been declared or reduced to 'garbage' -- unneeded, unwanted, and disposable.

2. For all the possible penalties and flags and metrics that your site can fail at under the pressure of continuing iterations of Panda and Penguin updates -- It may be your site is actually performing better under those than you think. Maybe you're NOT nearly as 'penalized' as you imagine your site(s) to be. It may simply be that YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED on Page 1 anymore like the good old days when multiple slots on Page 1 of Google SERPS used to be open to younger and new sites.

The net result for many sites under 5 years old: Being shoved off onto Page 2 and beyond feels like a penalty, but it may simply be your 'young site' is no longer being REWARDED for flawless on-page keyword usage, topic relevance, exact or partial match domain boost, or the mix of decent and so-so backlinks you do have that once propped-up your site.

I've seen this exact pattern on site after site: My own, my friends, my clients. Pressure from the Old Guard at the top, squeezed by punitive algos from the bottom. Ultimately, it's a NO-WIN situation with Google, and the sooner the 90% of us realize that and move on -- the sooner you can set out on new and other paths you site(s) can survive and thrive on.

Tracking Google Algo Fluctuations - Made Easy With MozCast and Algoroo

Trying to make sense of the wild ups and downs your site may experience from minor and sometimes major fluctuations in organic Google search traffic may be challenging. It is something YOU did with your site content or back-linking that made a positive difference - or a negative consequence? Or is Google 'Up to something?'

There's two great online resources can give you a quick reality check and a Big Picture sense of external algo factors that may be affecting EVERYONE - and not jut you and your own site(s).

Algoroo offers a an easy to grok dashboard showing the degree of volatility in Google SERPS over the past month, with more volatile days shown in red, the more uneventful ones in green in the bar graph. The 'speedometer' widgets reflect both a visual and numeric readout of Overall, Monthly and Yesterdays changes.


Likewise, MozCast offers a comparable but more simplistic chart of Google SERP volatility. They use a bar graph and a 'Weather' metaphor and temperature readout for how 'Hot and Stormy' the day to changes of the Top 10 SERP positions have been recently.



Note that despite having their own formulas for how they calculate and track top keywords across major themes (Tech, News, Sports, Shopping, Health, Business, Etc) both Mozcast and Algoroo largely agree and correlate highly on the overall pattern. Both identify when SERPS are at an extreme state of flux, and when things are calmer.
