Two schools of thought here. (1) Make a site, even if it is a spammy scraper site and use blogs to get backlinks because "you can't make money from blogs". (2) Alternative opinion. "Blogs ARE sites" in fact they are better than static sites because they can constantly grow and then ping every time. Who needs static sites?" (Note, I am talking "splogs" here which update using rss feeds are articles, not "real" blogs where you write genuine posts. So, question: If we are talking "splogging" then are the blogs enough by themselves?
