Writers who care about producing consistently high quality content do not use spinners, but they can learn from spinners how to create multiple versions quickly and efficiently. -- David M. Guion

All-Purpose Guru LLC, a family of blogs and other Internet content by David M. Guion, is offering the book Write Good Online Content and Reuse It (Without Making It Dizzy) free on Kindle from May 29 through June 2.
The act of writing actually begins with reading. Writers read ideas and information written by others and then create something new. Good writing entails certain disciplines like summary, paraphrase, critique, and synthesis, as well as correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
Guion notes that good online writing requires clarity and honesty as much as traditional writing ever has. It also has new requirements for achieving clarity and ways of organization not possible in print.
Hypertext is actually changing how the human brain responds to the written word. Everyone's attention span is becoming shorter. Before humans can find anything online, it must gain the attention of search engines.
The World Wide Web has more sites than anyone can ever visit. Available content increases by the second. How can authors of that content make it found? One way would be to post it in many different places, but search engines actively punish duplicate content.
The next easiest tactic, therefore, is to post slightly different versions in many different places. The web is awash in content produced by automatic spinning software. Guion shows how it works—or doesn't work. Trying to read what comes out of a spinner can make the reader's head spin!
Writers who care about producing consistently high quality content do not use spinners, but they can learn from spinners how to create multiple versions quickly and efficiently.
With Guion's characteristic humor, Write Good Online Content and Reuse It (Without Making It Dizzy) presents the case for good writing and research in general. It explains how to make the adjustments needed for writing online, including how to produce the necessary multiple versions.
