SEO WordSpinner Removed from the WordPress Plugins Directory

Today I found out that the SEO WordSpinner plugin is no longer available via its WordPress Directory page. I emailed WordPress plugin-master Mark Riley asking what was up, and he just emailed me back:

Hi,
There were some complaints about some SEO plugins.
Your plugin was among those checked and given it’s purpose is not suitable for the directory now.

Mark.

If you’re a fan of the SEO WordSpinner plugin, email WordPress now to show your support!

The guidelines for the directory state that plugins “must not do anything illegal, or be morally offensive.”

The SEO WordSpinner plugin does nothing illegal or immoral. The only “morality” issue may be that the plugin is at odds with Google policies…but why is WordPress equating “morality” with Google policy?

Note: You can still download the plugin from the SEO WordSpinner plugin page.

  1. Hello Zack,

    Do you have a guide on how can I use it? Or, maybe you can give me link somewhere on how to use it? Thanks for your help.

  2. Hi, I have a number of inter-connected blogs and use WP-Social Pipes to connect them to each other. As it stands now, whenever I make a post in the top (money) site it gets re-published a few hours later on the other sites with the small difference that the links are shortened by bit.ly

    My question is will this plugin allow me to create unique content on the other blogs when they receive my main post? That would really make it invaluable….

    Thanks

  3. I would like to use this plugin in combination with my simple 404 keyword insertion. Is it possible to write an article based around my keyword that is 70% fresh each time google checks in ?
