    This is my first ever website guys.
    I am building an ebook review site.I already bought domain+hosting on 1&1.
    I have few theme ideas.I want to complete it today.
    I am thinking to spin reviews from other sites and have them as my own,How will it be ?
    Also I am currently an affiliate of a network,that gives 1$ per signup to ebook reading websites.
    Should I use their links or Amazon affiliates ?
    I shall use the aff. network until I get accepted at amazon affiliates.
    I am thinking of promoting it on Social Media,Youtube,Forums etc. along with SEO.
    I want it to be longterm,Passive income,so I will be working on it at a steady pace.
    I am also ready to put in any amount of hardwork,so guys please advise me.
    HUGE THANK YOU, ALL !!!!!

    Any reason you went with 1&1, I have yet to meet someone who was impressed by them.

    Secondly, spend a decent amount on great content, especially for your front page - First impressions matter !

    Spun content isn't a good idea at all for your moneysite, not even inner pages. You can get away with less expensive content, but it still has to be good, readable and flow nicely.

    It's advice not advise. I am not a dear, I am male and anything else, I charge £100 an hour or £500 a day for consultations, so it's cheaper for you to take a day out and read all the great, free info on this forum. :)

    I would suggest moving hosts, as you will find problems later on, best to do it now.plenty of good hosts on here.

    I hope you are building a high quality review site, not one of those sites that simply regurgitate information found elsewhere on the web already. You also contradict yourself by saying you plan on spending a lot on content, yet you consider using spun articles. If you want to boost your conversions, never go for spun content for your e-book reviews. You will have zero credibility if you take that route.

    For first time - you need 100% unique content. I guess first 6months, then, you can mix with not unique. Other ways will give you ban in google very fast (but sometimes you can be lucky, this is why, usually autocontent bloggers create minimum 10 sites for such purpose and it's minimum)

    So Google no longer checks websites for duplicate content after six months? You'll be safe from a "ban" just like that? I don't think so.

    If we're strictly speaking about whitehat, then I think it doesn't work that way. And even if it does work, how can you expect visitors to convert if you have spun gibberish on your site?

    That's the reason why i was planning to also use user generates content alongside written content.
    Currently I am looking for methods to motivate them to write on my site.
