    Guys,

    I have been thinking about info-products and content and how it has become an industry in itself.
    I see so much crap around and huge piles after piles of recycled duplicate content. People are buying and selling, spinning, re-packaging, re-writing stuff and the crappy gets crappier. Who gets benefited from all this content mills? Dunno!!:rolleyes:

    I would like to brainstorm something-
    1. Where does a typical internet marketer use 'content'? Money sites, articles, blogs, etc. etc.?? Please help me compile ALL the possible black/white uses of web content.
    2. Where are the places to get such content from? PLR? Scraping? CHeap writers?
    3. How much do you pay?

    I have explored DigitalPoint, Warrior, and a host of other sites. Its a pain to get a long-term, reliable, and , publishable ( i M not talking A+ quality) content.

    What ya say?

    Z

    I don't know about others, but this is where I am heading (whitehat, and I think effective).

    I will write a very brief blurb about the page and keywords I am targeting, and then will use MarketSam's competition tab to pull in relevant blogs/forums post blurbs, that way you can have a hefty post without spending a lot of time.

    Yes, I do some, but cannot do mass with this approach. On the other hand, can have writers write small blurbs (which reduces the nonsense) and then marry it with related blurbs. I am of the opinion that the related blurbs would actually strengthen your article (but I have no proof).

    There is no magic bullet, I wish there were, but love to hear from the others.

    Also, I have been thinking of creating authority vs. mass, and then the approach above works. I am beginning to think that if you focus on a few niches which have a lot of discussions (not 'chairs'), then you can product a few posts, but by getting authority mention and links, you could make more money than having a hundred blogs. I think google wants you to go that way.
