rotation is just another word for spin. all the planets spin on their 'axis' which is just a word meaning the center line of their spin. Think of a rod going through the Earth through the north and south pole. the Earth spins around this rod called the axis. a wheel, or a toy top or a gyroscope all spin/rotate along their axis

Rotation is movement about an internal axis. The earth rotates around its own axis creating the day, but it revolves around the sun, an external point.
