Hey guys! I'm new here. I'm a web designer looking to get into internet marketing full time. I've found through google searching that many of the people on this forum seem to hate Warrior Forum. I'm just wondering the reasons? Just trying to figure out who I can go to for valuable and helpful information I've read much from Alexa Smith on article marketing, spinning, duplicate content vs syndicated content and all that. I'm just looking for the TRUTH (I've read many BHW members trashing Alexa saying she/he doesen't know what he/she's talking about My questions. 1. I don't have any firsthand experience with link building or article marketing and was going to start looking into it more but I don't want to waste my time if article marketing is dead! What should I be focusing on (other than good quality content) for SEO in 2012? Is article marketing dead? 2. IF article marketing is still useful (Despite the newest Google algorinthim changes) should I be spinning or do I not have to worry since its "syndicated content" I've read spinning is useless because it's not considered duplicate content if it's on a different domain... Thanks for any help guys!
