That’s really weird. I have tested WordAI and Spin Rewriter with Copyscape and the results were always 80%+ uniquness, even 90%+. I don’t know how u spun the content to achieve such low results, but this is definitely way too bad. As for the block spinning, I have to be honest, this is the first time I’m hearing of it and I will have to check it out when I have a bit of time, but generally, yes, in the best case scenario, you would manually touch your Tier 1 content to make it 100% human readable and as unique as possible. For lower tiers, you can do pretty much anything, but again, the better quality of content, the better results you will have. That’s in my opinion and experience.
Spinrewriter has a decent Google pagerank and bad results in terms of Yandex topical citation index. We found that Spinrewriter.com is moderately ‘socialized’ in respect to Facebook shares (20.2K) and Google+ shares (41). According to MyWot, Siteadvisor and Google safe browsing analytics, Spinrewriter.com is quite a safe domain with mostly positive visitor reviews.
I've ranked websites in the past with spun content, and now they are still on #1 position of google. First year (2014) google found me because my spun was really bad, many paragraphs were just copied and my position drop from #2 to around #20 after a panda update. Later I cleaned all my text with better spun (I didn't buy any article!), my ranking went up again, and with more backlinks I reached #1 and it is still there
I personally love this one. It creates amazing content and is extremely affordable. We use a combination of WordAI and Spin Rewriter for our SEO projects, because these two are just an amazing combination. I think Spin Rewriter beats the “Standard Spinner” of WordAI in terms of quality and human readability, but loses to its “Turing Spinner”. So what we do is use the “Turing Spinner” for Tier 1 projects and then Spin Rewriter for the lower tiers. Sometimes we might switch them up, but it really depends a lot on the situation.
