Default Article Spinning Question

I would appreciate some advice. Is it ok to use an article spinner to create a unique article for the various freelance sites? Do some companies have policies against it. I usually spin articles for my private client's personal blogs. Can I do this for textbroker, DS etc...

From my experience with article spinners they are a waste of time because they just throw anythig together and in the end you have to rewrite the paper any ways.

I have had a different experience with article spinning. I don't use those free online versions (these can be a waste of time). I invested in a paid software (The Best Spinner) and it has been really helpful. Its not magic and you do have to put in some effort. I am new at writing and find it difficult to be creative and come up with the right words. The article spinner is like a giant thesaurus, and I have the freedom to pick and chose how I want to phrase a sentence.

I still would like some absolute facts about various company policies.

Thanks

JMO - spinning (as I understand it) and unique content don't mix. If you take one article, and change some of the words to synonyms, I don't think that qualifies as unique. Not to say you couldn't reuse your research, but each article should have a different slant.

Pre-Panda, I saw a lot of spun-articles coming back in search results, post-Panda, not so much.

I think it might come back to bite you if you spun articles that are supposed to be unique.

Not worth it. A lot of revenue-sharing sites, post-Panda, have been actively looking for and taking out spun content from their sites.

The article spinner is only a tool. It really depends on the person behind the tool to produce a quality text. Give it a good use, and you'll get great results.

No, you need to actually write a unique article, not spin an existing article.

Why not just ask the companies directly?
