Recently, I was introduced to a concept called “article generator.” Now, we all know the classic article spinner software, where you input a good piece of content, and it spits back the unreadable text that hardly makes sense.
But, it’s unique and passes Copyscape, so who cares if it sounds terrible and impossible to read?
In recent years, WordAI came to life and was by far the best article spinner software. The final result was still hard to read, but it was definitely the best from the worst.
I have used WordAI for over a year, and I have yet to see an article that I could spin and actually publish without (heavily…) editing first.
Nonetheless, for people like me, who run tons of blog, constantly creating new ones, and need to stuff websites with “instant” SEO-friendly content, WordAI still came out cheaper than buying it from someone on Fiverr who claims to be native, but… we all know what type of content we end up with.
To cut the story short, I discovered to a phenomena called ‘article generator.’
Now, I know it sounds terrible, and my first reaction was just a cynical cringe too. But within 2 weeks, I changed my mind dramatically.
Here is my honest review and experience with them both.
ArticleForge is significantly cheaper
If you use their API, you are limited to 200.000 words per month ($57/month). If you use their web interface, there is no limit on article generation volume. This makes the price of a single 800-word article $0.3 (at most). If you are not using API, you can generate 2x or 3x times more articles.
In that case, the price per piece drops to about $0.1 per 800 words.
That’s definitely affordable.
The downside? You still get an unreadable article.
The quality of the article you get is roughly the same as the one that comes out of WordAI.
The only difference is that you get random paragraphs “glued together” from different sources, and the order doesn’t really make sense. On top of lightly “spun” synonymous words, you get randomly arranged paragraphs.
Is the article from ArticleForge good for SEO?
Yes, definitely, since you can add sub-keywords to be “discussed” in your article.
But, I assume, once someone lands on your page from these Search Engines, they will bounce back right away.
So, you get dirt-cheap SEO friendly content. If this is what you are after, and you are just producing dozens upon dozens of MFA websites and PBNs, ArticleForge is a life savor.
And this one made me change my option about this whole concept of “article generation software”.
AIWriter does the same job, but a lot better.
How is it better?
First, AIWriter generates articles and adds “sources” for reference in every paragraph.
This is super useful if you want to go over your article and hyperlink some of the facts or stats and link to the reference site to make the article look authentic.
Super useful, really.
Secondly, the quality of the article is superior. Now, I am not saying that it’s some kind of creative writing (like this very blog post…) and that you follow the writer’s trail of thought throughout the reading.
No, it’s still a “dry” article that brings out facts, ideas, and stats. But, it’s actually readable.
It’s comparable to the quality of an article you get from an average Fiverr writer that charges $10 per piece. You can, if you want, publish it as it is (it will just sound like it was written by a hired foreigner, so no, no big deal).
Since I am in the European Union, I had to pay $26 for the smallest plan (instead of $22, had I never moved to Prague). So if you are not taxed for being a privileged European, you get a better deal.
In my case, $26 bought me 40 articles, which comes down to $0.65 per piece.
Still super cheap compared to any human writing on earth, and if you are anywhere outside of the EU, you will get it even 20% cheaper.
I don’t know anyone who would draft me an 800 words piece for $0.65, do you?
However, compared to ArticleForge, it’s literally 4-6 times more expensive.
Who is article generation software for?
Obviously, it’s for anyone who regularly uses Article Spinning software and wants to cut the production time in half.
Instead of looking for an article to spin, then feeding it into the spinner, and then wait for the result, you will only need to press a button, and the AI-tool will do the work for you.
Grammarly does a great job picking some of the “harshest” errors, like missing commas, extra spacing and rephrases sentences that ended up sounding a little foreigner-ish structure-wise.
ArticleForge vs. AIwriter – Conclusion
The bottom line is that ArticleForge is cheap and unreadable, and AIWriter is more expensive and offers superior quality of writing with references. You can actually get away with posting an article that came out of AIWriter without that many people noticing it was written by a bot.
