How Absolutely Anyone Can Use Spinning To Make $50/hour [Updated]

By Alex Cardinell on March 23, 2020 | 17 Comments

Update: This was written several years ago. Since then, countless members have used this method to make thousands of dollars. I wanted to bring attention to this method again with regard to the coronavirus – as the coronavirus actually makes it even easier to make money with this method. Why? Buyers are looking to save money, and this method will make you the cheapest seller in town!

Most guides you see talking about article spinning are solely focused on creating huge amounts of content to help better rank your sites. While SEO is a great use for an article spinner, there are many methods that barely anyone has thought to use. These hidden gems are lucrative and will give you the edge you need to make some serious money.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to talk about one of those methods today. It’s simple to do and doesn’t require any SEO, or really any expertise. All you need are basic English skills and the willingness to actually put in the time. You may be very skeptical of any story about making $50/hour without specialized skills. I can assure you (I double checked the math and even included video proof) for every hour you devote completely to this process, you can be making $50/hour, or more. If you operate inefficiently, you can expect to make less, but if you streamline your process completely, you could be making closer to $100/hour.

Even if you work half as fast or half as much as I do you would still be making $25/hour. That might not be the “get stupidly rich” money you’ve heard about, but that is pretty damn good for a job that requires no special skills. And if you want “get stupidly rich” money, this will still work for you. Why? Because, as you’ll see later in this post, you can pay other people to do this for $10/hour, sell their work for $50/hour, and keep the $40/hour profit for yourself without having to do any work!

There has got to be a catch!

That’s the best part, there is no catch! You are just an extremely efficient content writer. Still don’t believe me? Let me address the reasons you’re not navigating to the nearest article spinner at this very moment. I’ll start with the most obvious one:

Alex, freelance content writers do not make $50/hour!

You are right, and I’ll do some basic math to prove it (and then tell you how you can cheat and tweak those numbers).


Freelance content writers generally charge per word and not per hour. A good writer can usually charge somewhere between $1.00 and $1.50 per 100 words and can write around 750-1000 words per hour. That works out from anywhere to $7.50/hour to $15/hour. But that doesn’t even include the time spent acquiring new writing clients. So how did I make the jump from a $10/hour job to a $50/hour job? I found a way to boost productivity from writing 750 words per hour to writing 8,000 words per hour! If you write 8,000 words per hour, and charge a modest $0.65 per 100 words, that works out to over $50/hour!

Math image 2 (Spinning content)

Typing 8,000 words per hour.. you said this was something anybody could do.

You got me there. The real secret is not that content writers can make good money. The secret is that you can be a content writer without having to write a single article for yourself. In reality, content writing does not have to be hugely difficult or time consuming. Content purchasers judge content in two ways: readability and uniqueness. Readability is straightforward: just read an article and see if it makes sense. Uniqueness is easy to understand, but a lot harder for people to judge. In the end, all a user can do is check Copyscape and see if the article has any duplicates across the web. So you can just rewrite an existing article, and as long as the content makes sense and passes Copyscape, you will have a happy buyer on the other end. Not only will the buyer accept that the article is unique, but Google will as well.

Okay, so how am I supposed to be this hyper-productive content writer?

You get help. I let WordAi do all the heavy lifting; I just put the pieces together and quickly proofread to make sure everything flows well (I only write guides like these when I can personally vouch for them). With the help of Wordai, my process can be boiled down into 3 steps. First, I find an article directory (searching “article directory” on Google will give you hundreds of them) and search for the type of article I want. Next, I put that article into WordAi, which does 99% of the rewriting for me. Finally, I skim through the result to make sure it is unique and readable.

Can I just use any spinner to do this?

You could, but you will end up regretting it later on. The issue with most other spinners is that if they produce unique enough content, they make mistakes so often that you end up having to rewrite the entire article anyways. Or the article comes out pretty readable but you end up with so few synonyms that you’ll have to rewrite 50% of the article yourself before it can pass Copyscape. WordAi’s Version 4 Turing Spinner (aptly named after the Turing Test it strives to beat) is able to minimize the tradeoff between readability and uniqueness, producing easily readable spintax that is unique enough to pass copyscape.

As you are about to see in the video below, my article is spun with a uniqueness of 86% from the original (any text above 80% uniqueness will generally pass Copyscape). This means I do not need to mess with editing the unchanged phrases in spintax and can go straight to the spun text.

In the above video, I rewrote the first 423 words (the first 5 paragraphs) of a draft for the article you are reading now. As you can see from the video, it took me under 3 minutes (2:44 to be exact) to paste, spin, edit, and export. Let me show you the math:

Math image 3 (WAI Content Writing)

At the speed you saw, I was making more than $50/hr, but just to err on the safe side, I chose a slightly more conservative number. You might be thinking “wait, your calculations did not factor in the startup cost of finding articles”. I did not need to find content for this example, but not to worry, finding free articles from directories like Ezine Articles takes just a few seconds. Once you get into the groove of using WordAi to help you rewrite articles, you can easily make $50/hour selling your articles to tons of eager clients. There is no other spinner in the world that is sophisticated enough to generate spintax that is this readable AND is unique enough that it can pass Copyscape right off the bat, so you will be wasting time and money if you use anything else.

Wait, what about eager clients? How am I supposed to find them?

Free content is valuable, but it is more valuable when you have people wanting to buy it. There are tons of places to sell content, and because you are writing faster than all of your competitors, you can offer your content cheaper than anyone else. That makes it really easy to build demand and get clients lining up for your services. But enough talking, I’ll just give you a couple sources where you can sell content with minimal overhead hassle or time investment:

All four of these are great places to sell content; I’ve had success with each of them. And of course, if you are looking to scale, there are even better sources (I left those out so readers can find them on their own)… However, if you’re a dedicated WordAi user, send us a message and maybe I’ll give you a hint 😉

The absolute best way to sell content, no matter which site you use, is to turn those initial customers into repeat buyers. I have done deals with clients that need millions of words per month, every month! Having guaranteed work from clients you are familiar with will make finding and writing content much much easier, which converts to less time spent searching and more dollars in your pocket. Even better, once you have a good number of stable contents you won’t have to waste any time looking for new customers and can dedicate more of your efforts to churning out content!

So how much money can the average person really make with this?

Initially, while you are finding your first clients, you may only make $50-60,000/yr. However, once you have a stable list of clients, the average person could be making $91-104,000/year doing this. If you only want to work part time, you can probably earn half of that. And once you’ve reached that point, you can just pay somebody else to use WordAi for you while you spend your day on the beach (or wherever you want to be) collecting your check while doing absolutely nothing!

New Hardware and Software Update

By Alex Cardinell on April 20, 2016 | 17 Comments

WordAi runs on some very powerful hardware. We don’t just have one server, but a cluster of ten different servers that all work together to provide all of the intelligence that WordAi needs to intelligently rewrite content.

Well this week we decided that we wanted to give that server cluster an upgrade with brand new hardware! Coupled with several critical coding improvements, WordAi is now faster and higher quality than ever before. And with WordAi Version 4 coming out soon, it’s only going to get better!

New Advanced Spinning Settings

By Alex Cardinell on August 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

We’re excited to offer a couple new advanced spinning settings for WordAi.

We have had many users request that they can protect any words that are in quotes “such as in this example.” We have also received numerous request for the ability to protect Proper Nouns and Titles.

We now have both of those features! Just log into your account, go to the “Protected Words” tab and you will see the Advanced Protected Words Setting which will let you enable advanced spinning rules like these.

And if there are any other custom settings like this that you’d like to see, let us know!

It has been our single goal from the very beginning to have the highest quality and smartest program on the market, and today was a very important day for us. We’re already starting to hear great things about the update, and we are thrilled that there are so many others out there who share in our goals.

WordAi Version 3 – Coming on May 15th

By Alex Cardinell on May 1, 2014 | 11 Comments

After the huge success of WordAi Version 2 our team moved into brand new offices and immediately sat down and told ourselves “what we have is awesome, but we can do even better!”

Since then we have spent the past year working nonstop on improving WordAi’s artificial intelligence, because we knew that we were on the cusp of something big. While other tools add a couple gimmicky features and call it an “update”, we take pride in our work and we want our new version to have real improvements that will have a real impact on your bottom line.

So with that in mind, we are excited to announce WordAi Version 3 will be released on Thursday, May 15th. We will announce some of the new Version 3 features in the next week, and I can promise you that you will be blown away by how smart WordAi has become. With a major artificial intelligence upgrade, and several new special features (more info coming soon!), you will be able to use WordAi for even your main money sites, all with no human editing required!

This new version of WordAi will be completely FREE to existing customers. This means that now is the best time to sign up for WordAi, as when the launch comes your account will be automatically upgraded to Version 3 at no extra charge.

I’m really excited about the breakthroughs we are making in artificial intelligence and what that will mean for WordAi. Stay tuned, as more details will be coming out in the next couple of weeks!

WordAi Foreign Language Spinner

We’re extremely excited to announce that in addition to supporting English, WordAi now supports spinning in French, Spanish, and Italian! Each of these languages include the same artificial intelligence that WordAi is famous for, making WordAi the first and only smart spinner that supports and understands languages besides English.

This spinner isn’t just a “foreign language thesaurus”. It was built from the ground up for each of the three languages to understand every little quirk about it. This means our artificial intelligence can give you flawless human quality content with the click of a button. And for existing WordAi Turing Plan users, the Foreign Language Spinner is completely free!

We also have a fully functional Spanish version of WordAi (WordAi Español) for any Spanish speakers.

Just Moved In: New WordAi Offices

By Alex Cardinell on September 23, 2013 | 1 Comment

A couple weeks back was WordAi’s 1 Year Anniversary – it’s amazing how much time flies. And unlike a lot of similar companies, we are in it for the long haul. So we are excited to be moving the entire team into brand new offices:



Those are the new desks (and conference table) where WordAi Version 3 is being developed. While others are just trying to catch up, we are working on completely rewriting what is considered possible for an article spinner. We have a couple major announcements planned, so now is the time to hop on board at our current price. Remember WordAi users get all updates and upgrades completely free!

Now it’s time for us to get back to work on these awesome new desks! 🙂

WordAi: Now Backed By Over 50 Petabytes of Intelligence

By Alex Cardinell on August 5, 2013 | 1 Comment

This morning we publicly released a major WordAi Turing Spinner update, backed by over 50 petabytes of new data. For those who are not aware, that is over 50 million gigabytes!

We’ve been working over the past 8 months with several Fortune 500 companies to build this database up and use it to train WordAi, and it is one of the most comprehensive databases for natural language processing ever built.

What Exactly is This New Update Doing?

WordAi has always been automatically improving itself. It reads the articles that users submit and learns from them, just like how a kid learns by listening to other people talk. Over time this lets WordAi’s “brain” learn all sorts of things about how to think, read, and write like a human being.

WordAi has been doing this for over a year now, and this update is the equivalent of a kid downloading over 10 years of learning and experience! So now every time you spin an article, WordAi uses all of these new facts, lessons, and information to help determine whether or not a synonym makes sense based on the context of the entire sentence and article.

This major update went completely live a couple hours ago, so all new articles being spun are now backed by this new groundbreaking technology!

A Penguin 2 Success Story

By Alex Cardinell on June 11, 2013 | 1 Comment

At WordAi we are doing tests and case studies all the time trying to test and determine what is working best in the content and SEO industry – it is what helps us innovate and stay a step ahead of the competition… and Google! So when Penguin 2.0 hit, we got to take a look at the major case studies and tests we were working on to try and make sense of what was going on. From our own data and from talking to other SEOers, this update seemed very tame – almost all of our projects either went up in rankings or had no changes at all. However there is one SEO method I want to spotlight that improved after Penguin 2.0.

The Winners of Penguin 2.0: Big Authority Domains

One of the first things we saw from the Penguin 2.0 update was that one of the biggest gainers were authority domains.

This graph from MozCast shows that over the past month, the amount of top 10 rankings from the top 10 most ranking sites (YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook just to name a couple) have gone up. We checked in Microsite Masters and found very similar data there as well. Unlike the last major Penguin update there were no big losers, but we found that large authority sites were definitely big winners.

What Does That Have to Do With Our Case Study?

Several months ago we started working on a case study with Link Emperor to see how their links were working on authority sites. Link Emperor was one of the first WordAi customers way back when WordAi was in an early beta. I love artificial intelligence, and from the moment we first started working together I’ve really respected Link Emperor because they are one of the few link building providers I know of that has a similar artificial intelligence focus to their link building. Instead of randomly picking link packages that may or may not work in the current SEO environment, they are always tracking the results of each link building package available and use those results to automatically pick the links that are currently most effective. This way you are always using the most up to date link building strategies available. So I felt very good about this case study going in.

I started the experiment by choosing a broad medium competition keyword and created five different properties on high authority sites to go after them. I created Twitter Accounts, Facebook Pages, YouTube Videos, as well as high quality threads on relevant and high quality forums, with my goal being to try and get as many of those properties into the top 10 as possible. All of these profiles acted like landing pages to bring traffic to the main site I was trying to help promote.

And Then Penguin Happened

Link Emperor only started sending links for the experiment a couple weeks before Penguin 2.0, so when I saw that the Penguin Update was rolled live I was a little unsure about how the rankings would react. Would the so far promising rankings go upside down, or would the rankings stay true? To my surprise the rankings actually increased dramatically, with results like this one:

I saw results like these across all of our properties after Penguin – out of the top 10, 4 of the spots are currently being held by these properties (3 of which are in the top 5), and the #1 spot is being held by the money site that these properties are all linking to.

What Conclusions Can We Draw From This?

We have a lot of different case studies going on at any one time, and this was the first one where we were able to very quickly dominate a SERP result by taking 4 out of the top 5 results! Seeing as a lot of those gains (especially properties entering the top 5) came during the Penguin 2.0 rollout, I wanted to share these results and see what type of results everyone else is getting with these sorts of properties. Since the sample size is small I don’t want to make any sweeping statements, but I do know the results I saw, and they were nothing short of amazing!

With such good results, I would absolutely recommend Link Emperor (no affiliate links here, we only recommend what we use!) If you do sign up let us know what results you had so we can update this case study with even more data!
