Embedding Your Website URL's into Articles:

The software will automatically embed your links at the end of web 2.0's and article author boxes by default. Embedding your own links is not required, but if you choose to embed your links, the software will use your embedded links instead of the dropping them at the end of article/web 2.0.

1) To embed your website URL's into an article/web 2.0 you can either use your typical HTML format

Example: <a href="">{anchor 1|anchor 2|anchor 3}</a>

2) The other way is to use the built in tokens. To learn more about the tokens, please read the .pdf help guide here:

Example Link Embed Token: <a href=%url%>%anchor_text%</a>

%url% = Uses one of your URL's
%anchor_text% = Uses an anchor text

Embedding Images/Videos Into Articles

The code examples given have worked pretty good over all and seem to have a decent success rate amongst a lot of web 2.0's. Of course not every single web 2.0 will have video/image embeds open so keep that in mind.

Here are some test sites showing how the image/video embeds will appear in your web 2.0's:
Here are code examples for embedding video/images that were used in the example web 2.0's shown above.

Web 2.0 Image Embed Code Example: (replace the url's with your own image location urls)

<img src="{||}" alt="feet pain" width="400" height="300"/>

Web 2.0 Video Embed Code Example: (Replace Youtube Links With Your Own Youtube Video Links)

<iframe width="400" height="300" src="{||||||}" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You can also see the code examples here:

Using Multiple Articles Per Project (Spun and(or) Unspun)

Step 1) Put each article in a .txt file. Articles can either be spun or unspun and include embedding links, etc. Put all your articles into a single folder.

Step 2) Do the same for article titles and summaries. Put all your article titles in one folder and all your article summaries in another. (spun or unspun) You can also just paste your article summaries or titles into the fields as normal if you want.

Step 3) Use the token %spinfolder-<folder>% in the fields that will be pulling content from folders. For this example I'll put it in the article titles, body and summaries.


Step 4) Right click in the fields and select "Use contents of a random file".


Step 5) Select the folder that holds the content for that field. Do this for all fields that are using the token (titles, bodies, summaries)


You will notice the token will automatically change to the correct path where your folder content is stored


Now all you need to do is click the "Test" button and make sure your content is properly being displayed.


If everything looks good in the test window, you should be ready to rock n roll. =D>

*Note* This tutorial will probably change as I figure out new things and get corrected by the community. I'm sure I have some flaws in here somewhere, but this should give everyone a basic understanding of how to setup and work with web 2.0/articles.

    thank you for this.. always wondered how to use multiple articles.. :)

     too bad we can't load a folder with articles and it will automatically select the title/body and create a summary..

    That is true ... but hey, isn't that what the feature/suggestion part of the forum is for? It wouldn't hurt to ask. ;)
  • After saw your post about this feature, i just come across something that it will be nice to add. I will post it right now at feature suggestion.

    thanks Santos for this incredible tool
  • Yeah...or you could always use Nested Spinning like this:
    {Text here

    |Text 2 here

    |Text 3 here


    What we really need is a way to match up Title, Body, and Summary so they aren't mismatched. I started a "feature request" thread about it today.

    Do all the platforms accept an image link in them? If they don't what happens to this link?
  • As santos said, not all of them but still quite a few do. In my tests it simply strips out the HTML code. It doesn't seem to leave any 'mess' behind but I suggest u trial run some ;)

    Thanks :-) Will give it a go

    A slightly different but very good use of this would be for those with many projects where there are some generic spintax. E.g. blog comments, author bio, etc.

    I want to be able to create a single .txt file with all my spintax blog comments. The GSA, grabs this file, loads it, and chooses a random comment. 

    The advantage of this is that when you have 100 projects, and want to update the blog comment spintax, it's a pain (updating 100 blog comment fields). This way, I can designate 1 file, just update the 1 file and the 100 projects that are using this file will just use the update file with same name. 

    How would I do this? 

    (The current way grabs a random .txt file, how do I get it to select 1 file and then grabs a random comment from that file?)
  • Most standard text files use ascii to seperate fields. This is a feature I would like to see too. The only sofeware that does this atm is senuke. Most article writers spit out articles with the title in the first paragraph and the body is the rest. You could then just stick in any random summary from another file for the rest. This way you could load in thousands of articles quickly, more unique articles = better rankings.
