    I'm looking to build a PBN for a specific network and i'm wondering should i use totally original content on each site or can i use spun content (manually spun, by me, so that everything looks 100% ok - i mean, phrase, sentence and word level spinning all with perfect grammar, wording and everything).
    What do you guys think?

    Unique content should be better to avoid any sort of footprints. You don't want anything to link your network together for it to last you long enough and remain as effective as expected.

    Spun content will save you a lot of time. But if you have the time and/or man power original content is the best way to go.

    Thanks for the help!
    Two more question:
    1) 4-5 pages on each site in the network should be enough but later on, should i update each site, like 1 new post per month or something like that?
    2) do you guys use your networks to promote just one money site or multiple sites in the same niche?

    Simple answer unique is better, but if you don't have resource spun, mashed will do it. As long as there is no footprint.
    About updating sites with time, I think it is good Idea to post there once in while and show google that site is being maintained and update.

    If you're going to take the time to build a blog network geez spring for unique content.

    You're just asking for an ass-raping using spun content.

    Exactly. IMO, no point of building one if you're just going to use spun content. Especially if the profit to risk ratio is really high.

    For the cost of every other part of a private network, I think id go with original content - how pissed would you be if you spent all that time and effort, then got bombed for your content.

    I'm shocked this is a question. Treat PBN as if it is your money site because in the end it is what is making your money site worth while. Besides you can make good $$ on your PBN anyways why not add value. Stop giving google reasons to kill methods.

    I would never use spun content on a PBN because it reduces the strength, quality, effectiveness and longevity of it. If you want to speed things along then invest in something like wordai where you only need to make a few tweaks after spinning to make it readable. The extra effort will go a long way IMO.

    I think the point has been made, use unique content. I'm a bit shocked that you'd ask that question to be honest. Maybe building a network isn't best for you? If you plan on cutting obvious corners like that one just imagine what else you are overlooking or won't know when building a network.

    Definitely use unique content with your private blog network because you want the best face towards Google and high quality
    unique content is the best way not to leave footprints within your content.

    when i was thinking about spinning i was talking about deep level manual spinning - so that the final articles would be 100% readable. in the end, the question is do i want the same topics on all my sites (i mean choosing a topic and rewriting the article for each of the sites) or do i want unique topics on each sites? i'm not concerned about the quality of the articles, only concerned if i can leave a small footprint (by using a rewritten article) or not. what are your thoughts on this?

    In private blog network use only unique content. Although, you can use spun content on your PBN. But, keep in mind you have to face foot print problems..

    If you're only interested in long-term high-quality results, don't even think about publishing spun content.
    I always look at spun content as a "second-hand underwear".
    He here wants to wear a second-hand underwear for a price that's almost close to free?
