I think we can all agree that churn and burn SHOULD work, somehow, because Google can't afford to give out-of-date results to searchers. Imagine if you searched for "iPhone 6" tomorrow and got one-month old results. I suppose that's an extreme example, but you get my point. I think we can also agree that Google sometimes finds it difficult to detect spammy link building activity, which is why churn and burn has worked, and maybe works even now. And supposedly, Google finds it even more difficult to catch up to spammy link building if it's done via a 301 redirect or URL redirects. So let me throw out a churn-and-burn method in theory here (I'm a newbie to SEO): 1. Build basic money site - 1000 words homepage content, a few pages and a few blog posts containing 500 word articles. 2. Use GSA URL redirect to create hundreds of URL redirects to said money site. 3. Use Scrapebox and footprint factory to scrape for tens of thousands of contextual link targets (article sites, forums, edu and gov message boards, etc.) 4. Create truckloads of unique relevant content using Content Foundry. 5. Using this content and link targets, set up proper link diversity and let GSA-SER rip! What you guys think of this theoretical method? Will it work for churn and burn and ranking sites really quickly?
