rectories, web 2.0 sites, or other sources for backlinks. It is occasionally used by website authors on their own sites but usually avoided because the quality of spun content will nearly always be lower than hand written content. Spinning works by rewriting existing articles, or parts of articles, and replacing specific words, phrases, sentences, or even entire paragraphs with any number of alternate versions to provide a slightly different variation with each spin. This process can be completely automated or rewritten manually. Many article marketers believe that article spinning helps avoid the feared penalties in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP) for using duplicate content. The extent to which Google and other search engines can detect or devalue spun content is not clear. However, most uses of spun content are considered a black hat SEO spam practice. This is because most spun content is produced through automated methods and is considered human unreadable. Such content is only usable for mass posting on non-editorial sites purely for SEO; by definition, spam.
Article spinning requires "spintax." Spintax (or spin syntax) is the list of text, sentences, or synonyms that are embedded into an article. To create an article out of spintax, spinning software substitutes the desired synonym choices into the selected article in order to create a new, unique variation of the base article. However, because each article is created from the same set of spintax, each new spin of that article will be slightly less unique as the number of spins increases.
AND YES, COBALT, DEALER.COM, VINSOLUTIONS, ETC. ALL USE THIS TECHNIQUE. I'D LIKE ONE OF YOUR 'AUTOMOTIVE DIGITAL MARKETING' "REPRESENTATIVES" TO PROVE ME WRONG! I'm sure your Reputation Management scrubbing mechanisms are alarming you with that statement.
Let's have some fun guys, we can start posting more of what Britt posted, etc., duplicated spun (re-spun and re-spun and re-spun content). The execs in those companies have their heads in the clouds and have no idea what "writers", *cough spammers, are "writing" for "valued" customers.
could be duplicated are the ones you mentioned. I do think that creating snippets of an article with "fresh" wording with a link to the original content can work, but constantly sharing the same article in multiple places isn't enticing me to read it, in my opinion, looks more like a ploy than an opportunity to share valuable information.
I believe that if your article is good enough and written well enough, it will be found. This of course, depends on your SEO (categories, tags/keywords, back links etc.) This means instead of taking the time to post "everywhere" - take that extra time to add the best of the above SEO to your article and remember that they are just as important as the article itself. With that said, it will not always be a "hit out of the park", but then its purpose becomes a lesson to review what you could have done better or review the style of the "popular" articles. The style an article is written is important too, especially keeping up with what fancies the "cyberculture" to expand even further; with lists, infographics etc.
I think the only places any article should or can be shared repeatedly is on social networks. Share on a variety of pages (if you have access to them) or share as your Facebook Page on "like-minded" pages. You can tweet it twice a day as many days as you like, add it on G+, LinkedIn, and depending on the article - use Stumbleupon, Reddit or Digg (if you are comfortable enough using those types of sites, if not, you can use vendors to help spread the article like you are trying to do, but in a less obvious kind of way, while gaining page views).
Either way, writing great content is the key.
