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…

Phill from Post Maker here.

I am working way through the documentation. It’s my main focus for the next couple of weeks to get sorted, as well as UI tweaks. There’s a FB group (link in the app), so we don’t upset Publer or other non-PM in this group.

Sweet whats up Phill! I like the new module “Post Maker Packs” that helps me out with my variable problem and I know more stuff will be added to that. I’m glad your software integrates with my favourite social media super hero Publer if it didnt I know I probably wouldn’t have purchased it. I did join that group you mentioned. I hope you and the team at Publer can work together for synergy. Publer has a pretty decent email list and maybe they can do some cross promotion to help you guys get early traction. I think a few Publer success stories with your product would help as well. Spinning is pretty new to me but it seems like the right direction to go.

Will Spintax - be included - or is it something we have to purchase elsewhere to add in to Publer?

a month ago

Included. It will be an option when automatically recycling posts.

Would love to see spintax available in shortcodes too. Would allow me to pull random hashtags from a pool.

Would also be great if tweets with spintax are allowed to recur.

Also will be nice to have image spintax for more variation :D
