No-Captcha reCaptcha Now Implemented on

The newest innovation from reCaptcha, "No Captcha reCaptcha" has been rolled on on the home page.

This new version of reCaptcha is supposed to make your user experience easier by eliminating the need for you to enter a captcha (text) response ahead of time if Google estimates that you are probably not a bot.

I welcome all feedback regarding this captcha, for example:

- Is Google recognizing that you're not a robot very often (are you being required to click the check box and nothing else) ?

- If you do have to enter a captcha, is the text requirement easier or harder than before?

- Overall, is this an improvement over the standard captcha (example of the standard text based captcha can been seen on right now)

Math Captcha Now Available Via

I have heard from numerous people that the text-based captchas required to use Spinbot in "free mode" tend to be really difficult to read.  Even after multiple attempts, some people are finding it difficult to pass this captcha requirement.

Well, fear not!  For I have created a spin-off article spinning / text paraphrasing site called, which uses the same article spinning API used by, except it employs a math challenge question instead of a text-based captcha.

The math challenge question is going to be very simple, of course, in the order of "two minus one = ?" or "nine plus three = ?".  The question is posed in big bold letters also, so it should be very easy to read.

I have created spin-off sites such as and, which use the same Article Spinning API as, to illustrate the opportunity you have to employ the Spinbot API to create your own article spinning tool, or to do anything you want related to text paraphrasing and/or rewriting.

Please note that you will need at least a small amount of programming know-how to use the Spinbot API.  To be more specific, I would recommend reading up on what are HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) requests, and how they are commonly used throughout the internet.  Then I would recommend familiarizing yourself with a high level programming language that will make it easy for you to create and execute a Spinbot API request.  Actual code examples can be found on the Spinbot API how-to page.

Powerful New Feature: Auto Blog Posting

Spinbot now offers the option of posting your spun content directly to your Wordpress or Blogger blog.  This means, if posting your spun content to a blog is part of your work flow, then your life just got a whole lot easier.  

Now, instead of having to log into a separate browser window to paste, then publish your spun content, you can do all of these steps directly from the Spinbot homepage.  All you need to enter is a new blog post title and the credentials for your Wordpress or Blogger blog.  

In the case of Blogger, you will need to enter your associated Google credentials.  Then, as an extra step (which actually makes your job easier) you need to click the button next to the drop down menu to populate the blog list.  Then Spinbot will use get a complete list of Blogger blogs associated with that account and list them so you may then choose which blog to post to.

The auto blog posting feature will post whatever text is currently in the second textbox, where the rewritten content ends up after being processed by the Spinbot service.  Since this text represents the final product that will be used to create your new blog post, I would recommend giving at least a once over to check for any grammar or spelling mistakes.

Notice that there is an option to "Remember" your Wordpress or Blogger password if you select the checkbox.  Selecting this checkbox will most likely save you a lot of time having to enter your password every time.

Feedback is welcomed!  If you feel like the auto-blogging feature available at is not working correctly, please let me know (email me at [email protected]).  For that matter, please email with any feedback about anything if you feel like something isn't working correctly, or if you believe that something could be improved upon.

Happy Spinning!

Make Money Using the Spinbot API

First of all, what is an 'API' ?

"API" is an acronym, which is short for "Application Programming Interface."  In more common terms, an API is a program, or an universally available service, that other programs or services can use.  For example, one might create an API (a web based service), to translate text from one language to another.  Whereas humans generally used audible words to communicate with any other human, a program can use an api to communicate with any other program. 

In the case of the Spinbot, you can create a program or website to take advantage of the same text rewriting power available at the homepage.  There are potentially a wide range applications for Spinbot's article / text rewriting service.

An obvious application for the Spinbot API would be to create your own paid or ad-supported article spinning website.  By way of example, I have created the following free article spinning websites, which use the same API used by
  • Free Article Spinner - Requires a captcha, similar to, except the logical flow of is left-to-right.  This might be preferable for people who like to their text formatted vertically, or for anyone who likes comparing text left to right.
  • Article Rewriter Tool - Also requires a captcha, also features a top-to-bottom logical flow, but the captcha is moved to the right.  The potential benefit to this design is that the "before" and "after" text is right next to each other.
The business model for such a website would be pretty simple: Try to make more money on ads than you are paying for hosting and Spinbot API usage.  Using the code examples available on the Spinbot API page, you could very quickly create your own such online app.

Another application I thought up for the Spinbot API is a more abbreviated "rephrasing" site, that focuses more on shorter sayings.  Here is the site I created for this purpose: 
  • Another Way to Say That - Allows users to rewrite short phrase or saying.  There are also a range of example phrases / sayings shown down the page to give users an idea of the wide (unlimited) possibilities.  
Another potential application: A mobile friendly article / phrase / text spinning site. 

Regarding the Spinbot API example code located on the Spinbot API page:   There is an ASP.NET example if you prefer to Microsoft based programming (this might include ASP or MVC style websites).  For Linux users, there is a PHP example, which could be uploaded and used in any Linux based hosting account.  Both of these examples require that you enter your own Spinbot API key.  

So what do you think?  Can you think of any other potentially useful or lucrative applications for the Spinbot API ?
