OOPS…

Well, for some reason, my auto-renewal for the SpunWrite.com domain didn’t process as it should have, and instead of warning me, GoDaddy just yanked my site and put up their wall of ads in its place.  This issue has been taken care of, and spunwrite.com should resolve to the original site shortly.

Sorry about that…

We’re Everywhere!

Just checking some stats.  We’ve spun literally thousands of articles in the short year-and-a-half we’ve been going.  This makes me happy.  I like being the “ghost in the machine.”  We’re quitely driving tens of thousands of targeted people and relevant links to our customers.  We’re everywhere, and yet, nowhere, all at once.  Most of our customers prefer to treat us as their “little secret,” but we’re fine with that.  So where can you see some of our work online?  Chances are, you probably already have.  😉

Thanks everyone,

The Basics to Getting Ranked in Google

Recently, my friend Josh, who runs Jackson Photography, asked me for some basic tips to getting ranked more highly in Google.  Following are some tidbits that I shared with him that should be applicable to many others wishing to improve their rankings:

1.   Make sure your page title, and URL, if possible, contain the keywords for which you wish to rank.  Also, don’t forget to include META keyword and description tags in the head of all your HTML pages.

2.  Make sure your most important keywords are included in the body of the page several times (but don’t “keyword stuff”–make it natural), paying special attention to include them in header tags, bold them if possible, and include them in your text links back to your site–(for example:  if trying to rank for “Jackson Photography,” your link text may look like:  Try Jackson Photography for All Your Photography Needs).

3.  Use Google Toolbar’s Backward Links button to scout your competition’s links, and go after the same links!  Links are the lifeblood of rankings–the more you have (and the more established those links are–that is, those with high PageRank), the better you’ll do in the search engines.  Go to Google, search with the keywords you’d like to rank for, and visit the top 10 or 20 sites, paying attention to the incoming links to these sites.  Many will likely be directories or blogs that you can visit and submit your own site’s links!

4.  Start a blog!  The content syndication features of a blog are an SEO godsend–having a blog is almost a must to rank well today.

These are definitely the basics, but as with anything, a good grasp of the basics provides a great foundation to build your knowledge and skills!

The Sweet Sting of Success

If you’ve placed a SpunWrite order recently, you’ve likely experienced a longer-than-usual delay in receving your spun articles. I understand this may cause some frustration or confusion, especially if you’re a returning customer, and accustomed to getting your rewritten articles back within a usual time-frame. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We’re currently experiencing very heavy demand for our services. While this is great on one hand, I won’t lie–it’s been difficult for our staff to keep up. The simple fact is that writing, and writing well, takes time. Although we’ve always trumpeted the speed of our service, it’s really the quality of our work that has continued to grow SpunWrite over the past year. We’ve recently posted notification that it may take up to 72 hours to process your order, give or take a few hours, dependent upon the time and quantity of your order.

We appreciate your patronage and your patience, and we are working hard to ensure every order receives the care and attention it deserves.

Thanks,

Paul

My New Facebook App, “Told Ya So!”, Launches

Hi SpunWritees,

This post has nothing to do with article marketing or SEO…rather, I’m doing a little self-promotion for a Facebook app that I just launched, called Told Ya So!

It lets you argue with your friends, vote on others’ arguments, and send virtual bribes to your friends to encourage them to vote for you.

I like it, and I think it’s fun. But that’s just me. I’d really appreciate if you tried it out. You can always uninstall it if you hate it!

That’s all for now…

Geeze…I really should post more often.

Sorry for the dearth of posts. I’ll try to do better.

Thanks to all my wonderful customers, and for making 2007 (and so far, 2008) a great year for SpunWrite!

I can’t believe it’s already been a year!

Avoiding Duplicate Content: Exactly How “Unique” Do Your Spun (Rewritten) Articles Need to Be?

A couple of common questions among those who use article spinning to boost their article marketing efforts are: “How ‘unique’ does my content need to be? Is there some ‘magic formula’ that I can use to figure out the percentage of similarity that will safely escape the search engines’ duplicate content filter?” Well, as it turns out, there just may be.

Google is NOT Your Customer!

Oh, those poor, misguided souls…

You know the ones–prowling internet marketing forums, downloading every latest and greatest e-book from yet another “guru” (who is just such a nice guy that he’s sharing his SUPER SECRET METHODS FOR DOMINATING GOOGLE! for a mere $49.99), endlessly checking their “keyword density,” worrying about topics as esoteric as “latent semantic indexing”…

It’s almost as if getting highly-ranked in Google is some sort of highly-classified secret to whom an only an enlightened few are privy.

Well, I’m here to tell you that I know the “secret” to ranking well in Google, and I’m going to share it with you in just a few minutes…for (GASP) FREE!

On the Ethics of Article Spinning

So you want to exponentially increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your article marketing efforts, and you’re looking towards article spinning to achieve this goal. But there’s a little voice inside of you asking, “Isn’t this kinda spammy? What will Google think of me?” I understand. I’ve been there. (Yes, not all internet marketers are slimy snake-oil salesmen.) But just like many other things in life, there’s a right (legal and ethical) way and a wrong (illegal, unethical, and “spammy”) way to use rewritten articles to expand your online reach. Today I’ll discuss the former. Read more…

SpunWrite.com Launches!–An Article Marketer’s Dream!

Hello! This is the inaugural post of the SpunWrite.com blog, and I couldn’t be more excited! My name is Paul Pullen, and I am proud to announce today the launch of my new article spinning (rewriting) service, SpunWrite.com.

The motivation that ultimately led me to create SpunWrite.com grew out of my frustrating and disappointing experience with software article spinners, which purportedly can create hundreds of “unique articles” with just a few mouse clicks. Boy, they’re “unique,” alright. 🙂 As if there’s not enough incoherent gibberish already online.

As you probably already know, article marketing is a powerful tool for online site promotion and SEO, but IT’S SO TEDIOUS! I can understand how enticing the siren song of those peddling software article spinners can be, and I can certainly empathize with the thousands of you who have had your high hopes dashed after shelling out your hard-earned money (and time) only to be greeted with a computer screen full of “uniquely” unintelligible garbage that could only hurt your site’s image and search engine rankings.

So, being the budding entrepreneur I am, I said to myself that magic phrase every entrepreneur has uttered at one point: “There’s got to be a BETTER WAY!”

My goal was to create an article spinning solution with the speed and efficiency of a software program, yet with the ability to produce the quality rewrites only a real live human-being can produce–and I think I’ve succeeded.

SpunWrite.com is the only human-powered article spinning service available today. You simply submit your articles, specify the number of unique rewrites you would like, and within a few hours (yes, a FEW HOURS, not days or weeks), you receive the rewritten versions, which you can then download from your SpunWrite account.

No spending hours thinking of synonyms and phrases, no funky syntax rules to memorize–just submit it and forget it. And you get quality, human-written articles suitable for any online marketing use you can dream up. All for less than 1.5 cents per word!

To learn more about how SpunWrite.com works, view examples, and try it out for yourself, just visit SpunWrite.com to create your free account. For a limited time, all new users will receive a 10% discount off our already ridiculously low prices.

And stay tuned to this blog for SEO tips, tricks, case studies, and anything else I find interesting. Thanks for visiting, and I’d love to hear your comments and/or questions about SpunWrite. You can leave a comment here, or feel free to e-mail me at paul (at) spunwrite.com.

See ya soon,

Paul
