    Hey everyone,

    I finished the build on my site last night and now it's time to fill it with content. The thing is, I am not certain if I should fill it with reviews that have already been published to the net, or if I should shoot for unique content from the start. The problem with using unique content in the beginning is it is going to take forever to get that much work done on this site, where content that already exists can be published a hell of a lot faster.

    My question to you all is, if I place a few existing reviews in every category, will that hurt my ranking later once I establish authors that can write unique content? Or should I just take the months of time necessary to publish unique content from the start?

    Hi

    Seo is a long term strategy so dont expect to fly high in one month its a hard work and you need to be ready for that now regarding your question

    its better to start with fresh content dont take exiciting content on the start cause it wont take you anywhere , can you tell what you trying to target what niche ?

    product reviews.

    This site is going to be packed with reviews ranging from advertising services to wedding services, and more categories will be added as they are needed.

    Go for new content all the way. Just read other peoples reviews and re-write them in your own words, don't really take that long.

    just copy the reviews what others wrote and rewrite them as you see fit. If the other review did not have any images, try to include images and probably some excel sheet pics as you see fit.

    Definitely gives a personal and unique edge

    SEO is overrated, focus on building content that will make people want to come back and read(And Bookmark) by doing guest blogging etc, and the SEO will handle itself naturally.

    Go to microworkers.com or a similar site and pay like 20 cents per (unique) review, order 100 or so and you have a great jumpstart!
