    What I mean is I want to make my tier one appeal to real human readers. If this is the case it still seems corny and crumby to just spin the same article from your money site on to web2 properties because the reader will enjoy the article then click through expecting to read more interesting stuff only to be sent to the exact same article just in different words.

    What Im thinking to do is build up my tier 1s now with the expectation to get a following on them. Nurture them as a main traffic source etc. then as a bonus round spam them underneath to try and rank in google.

    So as such what is the best way to go about content creation? I mean the full bore idea would be write new content for every property but I think thats going too far and not practical. Maybe write a second shorter article for tier 1 and just recycle it on the differnet properties because people reading one property arent likely to be going to others on the same tier. Not in the same sense they will click through to the money site.

    Im in the gmaing niche and wriitng my own content so I do have alot of good content to write since I enjoy writing about it. Im thinking of what the big players do. For example I guess they do do the same thing in a sense like ign will have a video review and then you can click through to the full text review. So in that sense it isn't 100% new stuff. So I guess I should follow their lead and write the short version on the tier 1 linking to the full writeup on the money site. So treat the web 2s as a preview or presell of the real stuff on the money site.

    It feels great making a site about a niche Im actually interested in for once. Usuaully I would be racking my brain to find 500 words for articles in random niches but with this I am thinking of new ideas to write on every day.

    Thoughts?

    IMO you should be outsourcing any and all writing, period. No one EVER got rich writing articles. If you're using your T1's as legitimate feeders to your money site, buy higher quality articles. If not, buy the cheapest you can get that aren't spun.

    You can write a complete article, spin it, and then use the spun articles on your tier 1 properties. Don't ever spin your homepage article or any article on your site for your tier 1 links. Write a different article instead and you'll find that you've eliminated 95% of the issues you're worried about.

    Unless you are writing the articles for yourself and by default, your site benefited from them.

    I write all my sites articles, every single one for my three main money sites and each of them has hundreds of articles/posts/pages on them.

    If you want to use high quality articles tier 1, don't EVER waste it on a web 2.0.

    Use it for guest posting or buying a powerful domain and posting it on there.

    Ye i thought this was quite a skewed view. As i mentioned in the OP i said i enjoy the subject matter so it is fun to write articels on topic.

    Also its totally wrong saying that 'no1 ever got rich from writing their own articles'. What about all the succesful whitehat bloggers of the world?

    I think your entire question boils down to : how do I produce Tier 1 content.

    My suggestion would be : hire a writer here from the marketplace.

    I am gonna just write another shorter article and say click through to see the full article.

    For this niche I think it'll be no problem waxing on the subject matter but for other niches I had no interest then ofc outsourcing would be more likely.

    I guess someone needs to let the Mods know on here then so they can remove the "whitehat" section...
