    I read a lot about SEO and most people who write about search engine optimization just read in other places without testing things and tell them like they really know what they are talking about but they mostly don?t know.

    I see a lot of people saying content is now the king, backlinks don?t work, you need unique content to get indexed in google and other information what aren?t so true, anything above has something true but it is not totally true.



    Maybe content is the king but who is queen?

    I don?t want to say content isn?t the king, but if there is a king then there must be a queen or maybe more queens, I know a few of queens: mass posting, high quality backlinks, churn and burn backlinks. All are queens and all work you just have to find your queen, the one who fit you the best and use it, you can use high quality content too but what I want to say: Content if the king but if you want a queen I?m pretty sure you will find the queen what you need or maybe more.
    How I started using spun content:

    So few days after I?ve started my journey I tried something new, I created a bot to post on wordpress sites, the bot is very simple, you import a list of keyword, you can add an article in Spintax format, where the article will find: ?%niche%? it will replace it with one of the keyword from kws list. For keywords list I scrape google/google keyword tool to find my long tail keywords, usually I end up with 500-1000 long tail keywords and I create a post for every keyword so I have 500-1000 post per niche using a spintax article to create a new article every time from it.
    Using this method I?ve created +5 sites and most of them have visits and all pages are indexed in google but this is not all, most of them also gain authority because of the number of pages indexed in google and thanks to the authority most of them start ranking for some keywords with 100-1000 ms.

    Below is a screen shot with my best website where I?ve applied this method, as you can see it have 105k pages indexed in google, all of them have duplicate content. The domain is almost 2 years old, but I?ve started mass posting on it 7-8 months ago after 1-2 months all content was indexed and my sites were having ~100 UV per day.

    Below you have a screen shot from Statcounter with the website I?m talking about:

    As you can see, now I have 200-300 unique visitors per day, thanks to +30k post I?ve created 6-7 months ago.

    I really don't find the motive behind the post.
    It only looks like a promotion of your website.

    As much as I loathe building backlinks, I'm inclined to agree as quality backlinks are the #1 factor that search engines use to determine a website's ranking.

    How about both content and backlinks are kings in their own respective ways? Eh!? A good content wouldn't fare well without good backlinks and good backlinks wouldn't fare well without good content. Let's end the feud between content and links.

    IF you're building a website for the long run and want many repeat visitors - yes, sure content is important. But if your intention is to just ship them over to an offer and make $$$$, content doesn't matter that much. As long as it's original in Google's eyes you'll rank

    I have proven this to be wrong.

    As long as your keyword density is 1% the rest does not matter at all.

    I have done test where I ranked 100% bullshit content with 100% GSA spam.

    Shit i even rank FB pages with less than 100 words content and many others do too.

    Google is a algorithm, it cant read content and say this is good or this is bad. Not yet at least.

    One of my websites has the same number of visitors (200-300 unique, 6 months old) with ONLY 70 posts. Work smarter not harder. As for your original question, forget the kings and queens, it's a combination of number of factors, kings queens, pawns and backlinks just to mention a few. As for who is the strongest among them, I'd say backlinks rule.
    P.S. The more duplicate content you have, the more vulnerable you are. Don't stick your head out of the crowd, stay low, work smart that's all it is to it.

    Good Backlinks are King

    I think Content engagement is queen.. How many people share your content, how many people likes and dislike it, comments on your comment and is it really helpful.. So in my views content engagement is queen.

    Yes, it's a promotion for my website but this doesn't mean I don't share something I think is useful because if I wouldn't then why other people visit my blog?

    I agree this 100%, this is what I did, I used some spun content and inserted kws few times to make kw density 1%-1,25%.

    I think you're not the one who work smart here, for 70 post you need some time to make them or some money to buy them, I did everything for my site in 4-5 hours.

    This is what I want to proof with my site what have ~30k spun content but everyone understand what they want, content can be the king where you need to make someone convert an expensive offer or something like that, but this is not my case.

    If someone share your content on their site you will get a backlink, so at the end content engagement are nothing more than natural backlinks.

    What really matters is how much money are you making? You can have 1 million duplicate pages indexed in Google, but if you make a big fat 0 you just wasted your time.
