How to Use Spintax with Rank Math

The word Spintax comes from the phrase “Spinning Syntax” and it is a technique often used to producing content on a large scale within a short span of time. The syntax begins with an open curly brace and ends with a closing brace and each term inside the braces are separated by a delimiter (pipe character).


For example, if you try to use Spintax in a sentence of mentioning different luxury automotive brands,

I drive a {Tesla|BMW|Ferrari}

And at any instance, you would come up with only one of the following results.

  • I drive a Tesla
  • I drive a BMW
  • I drive a Ferrari

The number of combinations can be increased further as you increase the number of variables and the possible terms for each variable.

Adding Spintax to Rank Math

If you’re running an auto blog (or automated blog) and using Spintax, thankfully Rank Math supports them. Rank Math allows you to add Spintax to your titles and meta and in this tutorial, we’ll show you how to use them.

1 Navigate to Titles and Meta

At first, you need to navigate to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math> Titles & Meta > Posts (or Pages or any other custom post type), where you want to use Spintax.

Posts under Rank Math Titles and Meta

2 Add Spintax to Your Titles and Meta

You can add the Spintax to your titles or description using the variable — %randomword(word1|word2|word3)% where you can replace the words with the term or phrase you wanted to include in the meta tags and click Save Changes.

For instance, it would look something like this:

3 Checking Spintax on Your posts

You can go to the page for which you’ve configured these settings and check the page source (using the shortcut Ctrl+U in Windows and Option+Command+U in Mac) so that you can check if these changes are reflected.

For this tutorial, I’ve set the page title to be “Nike” and we can see in the page source the title being displayed as “Buy red Nike shoes online”.
