    Let me know what you think?


    For couple of days now we're stuck in page two (we used to be on page 1) probably Farmer Update is the reason. I know there are other factors to consider here.

    Major parts of our source links is coming from the spunned articles that I've submitted through thousands of sites (AMR)

    This make it even more harder to rank well. I believe FARMER UPDATE is all bout "Uniqueness in Articles" does it mean bye bye to spunned articles (TBS)?

    Now even more harder to pass into EZA since they're getting more strict on getting articles - do a quick search here in BHW for "weird article rejection"

    Spun articles for backlinks = cool.
    Spun articles for website content = meh.

    I agree with that. But the quality of spinning is still important. I like the thread about the ngrams and advise everyone to read it.

    The quality of the articles is still very important. I like to spend more time to make sure the articles are still very readable. I don't just depend on the ones generated by any software. With good spinning, I believe one can still get good search ranking.

    With quality spinning I don't think there will be much of a difference. At least not with this update. G isn't as smart as it wants everyone to believe.

    ScrapeBoss: Yes of course uniqueness is important but how much % of uniqueness does it require to pass into an article site like EZA? whats the safest %?

    Yeah I think you're right. I have other site that I optimize with and I've been doing article submission(20% original and 80% rewrites) and I bought tons of links from searchmonster and still my clients site is on page 1. or maybe G. haven't touch our site yet for filtering. :( I know searchmonster wasn't a good idea in the first place but I just give it a shot coz I got a cheap deal with them.

    btw, is searchmonster consider to be a link-farm?

    Will this effect the Autoblog as 90 % have the content sharing from other site.

    I've heard that EZA has been rejecting articles lately, with the reason for doing so shown as: "This article doesn't offer viewers any further information than that in your previous articles," not verbatim, but something to that effect. Could this be a problem for spun content?

    Not sure.. After farmer update I stop submitting spunned contents to EZA. Not taking changes anymore that's why I always make sure all articles submitted to EZA and the like are all 100% Unique content. So far so good..
