Nowadays, this forum is full of white hat propaganda newbies. I want to give you folks a word of advice. Don't listen to them. You know who I'm talking about... the "build natural" , "100% unique content Tier 1". After Penguin, I was afraid to use spun content, etc. Frankly I had a mental block and it was killing me. I am the owner of a ~200 domain high PR blog network, but again was afraid to use it b/c all the propaganda I read. Now I've done my own testing and I can tell you for 100% Fact all of it is bullshit. Links I used to "push" for these 3 tests ---- Low OBL HPR Blog comments, HPR Network posts (Unique). All other content was spun (non 100% unique - Web 2.0 , Wikis , bookmarks, etc). Test #1, Site #1: Difficulty: Medium-Hard http://panel.micrositemasters.com/reports/8e45fdf932784a51caff3503rr6egvx.html Test #2, Site #2: Difficulty: Medium-Hard http://panel.micrositemasters.com/reports/07fc7e43023454d8b34d3504qs7rarj.html Test #3, Site #3 Difficulty: Hard-Extremely Hard (Site has made $400 profit at rank #29, mainly from LSI traffic. Monthly is around 70-90k exacts) http://panel.micrositemasters.com/reports/9619875a05ad553e7d8d35054a04sk4.html Conclusion: Do your own testing before listening to what ANYONE says on BHW nowadays. If I wouldn't have run these tests... I would be missing out on HUGE sums of cash. P.s. All tests were "Analyzed" with Microsite Masters and I verified no other backlinks were built during the test.
