Hi all, I'd like to explain my set up and ask for help from those of you that are getting page 1 results in google using your methods. I personally have been concentrating on unique content in the form of re-writes which I spend much of the time doing. I've now taken on 2 outsources to help in the workload from time to time. All the content is placed on core web 2.0 sites to build authoritative pillars in their own right. From there all links are run through 200 ping sites, two indexing services, rss feads are created and submitted to 102 rss directories. Then spun social bookmarks are created and submitted 20 a day to a list of 500 social bookmarking accounts. All links are stored and checked for indexing, live links etc. Now that in of itself is quite a good strategy BUT it does take time and more money if I try to speed up the process by giving more to my team. So the question is - would I be best ditching all the re-writes in favour of highly spun articles? I wanted to make sure that all my links stick indefinitely and for that I thought the only way would be to take the time and spend some money in the process. My personal thoughts on this so far is to keep doing what I am doing and add spun content to article directories as tier 2's to tier 1's to help raise the pr on tier 1's - Then there's the spun content that could be used for free press release sites. My process has helped me get over 30 keywords targeted to rank on the first page with some hitting top spot with a good number top 5... My untested theory is that spun content can be used for anything and will get indexed as long as it is reasonably unique, it will shoot the sites up in the rankings in a fairly short space of time but will then drop off fairly rapidly as content gets removed and links de-indexed.. Would that be a fair assumption.. Just like the saying "if you build a house made from cards" What are your thoughts and do you have any results?
