Have been getting this error since yesterday. Working fine before, might just be something wrong with their API?

    TBS recently started to blacklisted quite a number of tools - which integrate via their api
    I have not used GSA CG for very long time, but i know of at least one other content creator which are blocked by TBS.

    It all depends whether the api is going via the Content Generator's own server first or directly  to TBS, if directly then there should be no issue.

    @royalmice thanks for the input. Tried it on my home computer and still can't spin. Getting this error

    Hmm I don't know why they would block our tool specifically. We use the normal API, no affiliate code or id in there API.

    Im wondering how they could block certain tools at all!?

    I guess the spin that is added afterwards is from the internal spinner as you have enabled that as well?
  • 710fla710fla ★ ★ #1 SER VERIFIED LIST serpgrow.com
    No internal spinner is disabled. Seems like only a few articles are spun before the API starts giving errors. Which is weird because in the Spinner Config dialogue it works fine when using the Test button

    The dont block the tool specific, but rather the IP if it goes view a central server and not direct to TBS.

    I am sending you a screenshot of my chat with Manuel from KM, yesterday, regarding this.
  • 710fla710fla ★ ★ #1 SER VERIFIED LIST serpgrow.com
    Found the problem. Ended up exporting the articles and using the bulk spin tool in TBS.

    Got an error about using the Everyones Favorite option. Switched to using Identify Synonyms and all is working now

    You should try GSA Content Generator again also, because it seems TBS had an issue yesterday, but today I noticed the api is working again in Kontent Machine

    @royalmice yeah was working today for a bit but again same error.

    Thinking of switching over to XSpinner

    @sven I wish the internal spinner had  settings to choose max synonyms and quality level (good, better, best)

    similar to TheBestSpinner settings in GSA Content Generator
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    Accepted Answer
    the internal spinner can not choose on that as it only knows:
    a) term
    b) list of synonyms for that term
  • Had the same problem with Kontent Machine. Support said they had to get in contact, apparently indeed TBS had changed/restricted their API.
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    Maybe it's the time between two spin-requests that needs to be higher?
  • I don't know, but it would explain today's experience with Kontent Machine: 
    the API test now works, but when I choose to spin the database, it dies after about 20%. 
    Too much too fast would be an explanation for that - so you think they have intentionally throttled their API?
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    Yes, I will change it for GSA Content Generator. By the way, you prefer Kontent Machine over ours? Anything we can improve?
  • I don't prefer Kontent Machine over GSA Content Generator, because I had purchased KM3 before I even knew there was a GSA Content Generator, so I never compared the two ;-) 
    And as I got a lifetime contract, I didn't feel the need for an additional product. I'm actually quite happy with it. The only thing that makes me think about getting your product, too, is the German language generation option. Might do a test after all...

    Update on the TBS stuff. Just received a message from KM support it's fixed now, tried and it indeed does work now.

    Why not to give a try on Spin rewriter. Used some year ago. BTW yes The best spinner having API issues from day before yesterday.
  • 710fla710fla ★ ★ #1 SER VERIFIED LIST serpgrow.com
    @sven @SERPowerLists @royalmice emailed TBS two days ago and they said they're aware of the problems with their API and their program crashing.

    Said they switched servers and should be fixed by this week

    @710fla

    Actually it has been working fine for me with KM3 since last week and i see @wolfvanween ; confirmed a week ago already it is also working for him.
