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…

I really look forward to having spintext implemented in Publer. What an awesome addition to the post recycling function that would be !

Social Bee offers variations for their evergreen posts, and I find myself feeling really weird about recycling the exact same content for each and every cycle. This feature would allow me to add some variations, as would creating a new variation that would be with the “same post” being recycled.

Recycling is for cans and bottles - not social posts. There needs to be some easy way to create variants.

Love this idea! Being able to use this feature when importing in bulk via CSV is also important.

Spintax would be great, yes. I imagine it can’t be that hard to add, but it would be so useful.

It would be great if you could not only vary words used, but also hashtags and images.

I bought Post Maker on Appsumo and absolutely love it. I use another social media scheduler in addition to Publer and can use PostMaker to create posts for both. There is a big update to it coming soon I have heard which will make it even better. To get it for only 49 for a lifetime is a steal.
