Article spinning refers to articles that have been written with the purpose of being rewritten in a different way to generate content on a web page or across the web. Article spinning is commonly used in black hat SEO tactics in order to generate a large amount of back links in order to rank higher in the search engine results.
Google and the other search engines do not approve of article spinning; and it is stated in their webmaster guidelines that algorithmic or manual actions can be taken to remove this spam from their search engine.
Google has released a series of algorithm updates to combat these. Panda is the main algorithm update that addresses these.
Article spinning is another form of spam which often repeats the same content in a different way and doesn’t offer any true value to the user.
If you are engaging in an SEO content strategy, be wary of anyone who suggests article spinning as a strategy as it is likely to gain your website a Panda related penalty.
It is advised that you do not engage in any article spinning, or to generate low quality content. Instead, seek to offer strong content that will engage people to like, share and discuss your content.
