Spintax - Post variations#193

Publer already has shortcodes, but what would make this incredibly powerful would be allowing spintax, which would allow TRUELY evergreen content generation and automation for scheduled/recycled posts.

If you’re not familiar, spintax works like this:

Let’s say our original article has the sentence:

Writing articles is a lot of fun.
Now if we format the above sentence with spintax, we might have something like:

{Writing|Creating} {articles|stories} is a {lot of fun|rewarding experience}.
Each of the words or phrases contained with {|} are randomly substituted in the spun article. So for the above example, some of the variations generated would be:

Writing stories is a lot of fun.
Creating articles is a rewarding experience.
Creating stories is a rewarding experience.
And so on for all the combinations possible. The number of variations depends on what software or service you use with your spintax.

You can spin articles at the word, phrase, sentence or paragraph level or a combination of all these.

Nested spintax refers to two or more levels of spinning. Not all spinning software or services support nested spinning.

Nested spintax is probably best explained with an example.

Let’s say I have the following sentence in spintax format:

Article directories are {an important {element|component|aspect} of SEO|useful for {getting|gaining} backlinks}.

In the example above, the first level spintax is in blue and the 2nd level is in green. So some examples of the output this example would produce is:

Article directories are an important aspect of SEO.
Article directories are useful for getting backlinks.
Article directories are an important element of SEO.

This would definitely make Publer a SuperPubler. Make sure to give it an upvote. The more votes it gets the sooner we will make it happen :)

I think this is a good idea, not sure it really needs top of the development list though…

Post variation would be wonderful! And would that then open up some level of “evergreen” content on Twitter within the context of one-post per variation?

Spintax looks cool but makes my head hurt working out the logic behind the variations. For me, it would be quicker just to hand write each variation.

Hope to support Spin Rewrite API to spin text

This would definitely be helpful. I put together a quick Spintax variations builder for Publer. It basically creates all the variations and creates the Publer CSV file. It supports nested spinax as well. There is also an option to apply all variations to each link that you include.

Folks, take a look at this tool: https://postmaker.io/

Seems like a good solution you can use for generating post variations. The exported CSV file will already be in the format that Publer accepts.
