What is Wordai?
It sounds like some Sci-Fi series on Netflix.
Wordai actually is an article spinner. An article spinner is a tool that allows you to take existing content, modify it, and then have a new article available for you to post or share without needing to go through the arduous task of writing an article, or paying someone hundreds of dollars to do so.
Content is King though indeed.
This is my official Wordai review covering everything I like and dislike about the tool, and also walking you through other complimentary tools such as Article Forge that pair perfectly with this and even have an API inside of each tools backend to integrate seamlessly. Check out my article where I list how I use them together.

Blogging effectively is fairly time consuming, and although I haven’t found anything to completely replace great research and well-written content from an expert, I will say that I have my suspicions regarding the research phase extending into testing quickly with spun content just to get a real gauge on rank-ability and real user interest.
In short, WordAi is a great starting place in the daunting task of creating content that gets traction before committing to hours of writing pillar posts and the like.
Becoming an affiliate marketer has been an interesting journey. Earning money passively for essentially experimenting with keywords, content, and web layout is quite entertaining to be honest.
Creating content has been a huge part of my journey and I even remember the individual posts that I put thought into usually did well for me, besides SERP Shaker, Wordai has definitely been an essential tool and one of the first tools I bought for my approach to mass page content marketing.
Luckily, I understand the affiliate marketing value chain, and right now earning isn’t the focal point of my journey as of yet. Instead, I’ve been hyper-focused on truly learning SEO and what really gets traffic and rankings from almighty Google over the longer term.
The good thing is that you don’t have to rely on perfect articles to do well in Google. You can always go back and clean up articles that gain some traction. In that sense I’d say that SEO Affiliate Marketing can be focused on authority without needing to necessarily only use authority tactics to arrive at that point.
Essentially I test quickly and go back to edit my content perfectly.
Let me show you how in the next sections.
Understanding which tools you have at your disposal is imperative as an SEO Affiliate Marketer. Like many, I avoided spending at first with the idea that I would turn around and buy tools once I was able to prove that these ideas could work.
The best proof has always been greenbacks. But, in affiliate marketing the skill (and a little help) precedes earning and you’ll learn that you can either shorten the learning curve with the right tools, or you can tough it out for the long haul and spend very little. The point is, you don’t get an award for bootstrapping.
Wordai was one of the first tools I ever purchased along with a Thrive Themes and Pretty Links membership.
When I purchased Wordai it was on accident admittedly. I was still one of those guys that would create different gmails just to cycle through free trials and for all the trouble it was worth felt like I was coming out on top.
Well, as fate would have it, my Wordai trial ran out, I wasn’t aware, I kept using it and never noticed the charge on my PayPal account (shoutout my accountant). I proceeded to keep using the tool as I built my first 5 or so sites and ultimately earning a few hundred dollars within my first 90 days. With SEO AD you get your money back once you earn the cost of the course ($500 at the time) so I had some money to invest.
At that point it was undeniable, but still for some reason it feels like SEO Affiliate Marketing has the tendency to not be treated like a business. Even when I was first introduced to it, I was coming off of Shopify dropshipping and ignorantly turned my nose up at it a bit (oh the irony).
Little did I know, Affiliate Marketing is a real business, SEO is a real skill, in order to succeed you actually do have to be pretty damn good at Content Marketing and Keyword Research as well. Adding insult to injury, I probably would have been a much better dropshipper had I learned to generate organic traffic first instead of diving into a Facebook Ads course.
Anyways, don’t waste your time. Get the tools you need and reinvest your profits so you can advance quickly.
Article Forge vs Wordai
It always comes up.
It’s an either or that we all run into when considering tools.
unfortunately, I even suffered from this way of thinking until I finally put the puzzle together.
Different tools for different purposes.
My big “Aha!” moment came during my agency work with a local digital agency. We spoke about using Ahrefs after already having a couple years using SEM Rush. I assumed they were similar, but I’m even more excited to see the differences.
In short, using different tools allows you to understand the market as a whole just a bit more than you may have previously.
WordAi is a word spinner.
Article Forge is an article creator.
They were meant to be used together from the onset, I realized later they are actually made by the same company as well.
Perfect for the strategies taught in SEO AD, I’m slightly embarrassed by the hesitation I had towards investing quickly.
Free for 3 days: Wordai trial
Using it for yourself is the best way to find out if a tool is worth it.
Especially a tool like this that costs $300.
Coming hot off the high (I’ll always be a fan of a free trial) I realized how useful Wordai was. Recently I was able to create some opportunity out of restarting a Wordai trial using a different email.
I know, I just mentioned this, it’s a hard habit to kick to be honest. This time around I not only began with Wordai, I also decided to begin experimenting with the Article Forge integration and came out the other side with 5 spun articles that I didn’t get a chance to publish.
However, once you purchase the tool they have a file section that both Article Forge and Wordai keep the content you create in an archive.
However, if you change accounts (emails) or run through your trial period you can’t gain access without paying for a subscription.
This was an issue primarily because the work was for not, once my trial was up I wasn’t willing to purchase back then so I had my articles trapped behind a pay wall. It was a good lesson for me in bootstrapping and why it’s no longer worth it for me.
At the onset, I understand the friction of buying the first thing you see and hoping it will solve all your problems. I’ve been around the block and I know better as do most of you reading this.
The difference is, at some point you’re no longer a novice and it’s time to really get in the game by getting the best tools you know to use and finding ways to improve your process.
Once I took SEO AD and started participating in the Facebook Group. I began to take notice of the software recommendations that would come up. One of which was Article Forge, a tool that claims to write articles about any keyword you input.
Additionally, Greg laid out a strategy that spoke to me and my Keyword Research style that made it a natural next step in my journey.
Curious and enthused, I decided I would give it a go along with Word ai I was convinced I’d be able to create a ton of content and thus test better and even faster.
With its latest version being released about a month ago, Article Forge now allows users to insert keywords lists and schedule posts for future publishing.
The integration directly into WordPress seems as though it’s set to rival SERP Shaker, and after making a few sites this way I’m starting to believe it might be a lot easier to set-up with Article Forge in this way rather than SS.
I also noticed the Wordai api integration and decided to tie the two together. They are both made by the same company and just like Google loves Google I figured I’d get the full experience the company offers by using their suite of tools together.
I’m always looking for ways to compliment the tools I have. Naturally, I noticed this new tool while performing keyword research for this article and decided to jump over to the site and open a free account.
I was a bit put-off by the footer text that read “2015-2017” but that’s just me being picking really. I dug in to see if the tool might be useful for me.
Essentially, this tool is a lot like Article Forge but with less features. It gets the job done nonetheless.
One of the hiccups I encountered was the inability to create certain articles because the tool was giving me an error message after attempting to create an article for 15 seconds or so.
One thing to remember is that these tools aren’t perfect, they don’t need to be either.
Your value as an SEO affiliate is to be able to finesse the content through any means necessary while staying strategic and cognizant of the implications that same content will have for both the Google algorithm and user experience.
Becoming a content producing affiliate or as I keep reverting to as an SEO affiliate is a bit of an Art more than it is a Science.
When I first started on this journey, I didn’t even know what a host or server was. I also had no clue how to install WordPress.
Yet, time and again, the real battle is one of creating relevant content that ranks.
Obviously some deep reasoning needs to go into keyword analysis, but after that stage you are left to face a blank page.
Although I’ve taken the time to either write or hire writers for each post on this site.
I do have test sites who’s sole intention is gaining traffic and testing offers.
Even though Blue Highlighted Text has been a pleasure to grow, and I’m sure it will pay off in the long run as I do it this way.
Having test sites that I’m able to manipulate, spin articles, generate articles, and mass produce allows me to get more practice in as I understand what types of articles, keywords, SERP features, themes, and offers really work even if it’s for a limited window.
Spun Content vs Original Content
Once I began taking Wealthy Affiliate, I decided that I would create this very blog Blue Highlighted Text. I bought the domain and began writing ideas in Google Docs. I’ll create a post covering my method soon, but for now just no that I was completely winging it without any regard for on-page SEO best practices.
I literally set some writing goals and at the end of 90 days I have 100 articles less than 1000 words and one pillar post of around 6000 words.
Although this can seem daunting to many, really it was a matter of pushing publish on a ton of journal entry style posts (remember I didn’t know what I was doing at the time) and every once and a while I would post with keywords in mind and eventually I came across the rank math plug-in I know and love today.
Basically, there are stages and I was able to understand on-page after experimenting with mass page and authority posts. Nowadays, I’m searching for ways to blend the two worlds and still get longevity from my sites while also not needing to create content for 90 days. Maybe if I can cut that down to 30 days of content creation and tweaking.
Mass Page Sites
Although Google hates them, mass page sites or what I call test sites were introduced to me through Greg Jeffries course SEO AD and quickly became a go-to tool for getting practice in the world of SEO Affiliate Marketing. When you’re new, the last thing you want is to work for months on a site only to not get any traffic and never earn a commission.
Although, some really respectable courses teach about authority blogging, I am personally on a journey to blend those philosophies with the interesting underworld of SEO that focuses more on exploiting the search rankings and being a few steps ahead before ultimately getting shut down.
In other worlds, there is some excitement to be had in this industry. No different than day trading while you also set-up a portfolio of hard assets that you hold for the long-term.
Getting started in SEO affiliate marketing requires tools like Wordai, SERP Shaker, Articoolo and Article Forge to offer a helping hand. You can check them out in our tools section but more importantly, I hope this article gives you a glance into the strategy I personally use to identify where to best place my efforts when trying to make this affiliate marketing thing work with organic traffic.
It’s a long road, and I’m still learning, but I do believe that Wordai and Article Forge will get me further along my journey than not having them. I’ll continue to find new and better ways to create content. One that I’m using now is iWriter.com to rewrite my Article Forge articles and give them a more human touch, we’ll see if it works.
