    Hi y'all,

    Last year i was struggling with the concept about outsourcing writing articles or writing quick meaningless ones. I would research and analyze the hell out of google and other data sets and really present some unique information. I could do that as I was between contracts and I was writing for one site.

    I have been blown away by visiting this forum and having my eyes opened to article scrapers, article combiners, auto article submit software.

    Its kind of a shame that the need to write high or original quality is dead, but this week I have gotten my head around the need for speed, bulk uploading - to get mass links back and rise in the ranks. I guess I would rather make money, and at least compete against the rest of the seo legends in here!

    I imagine that most of the outside community has no idea of what goes into efficiently getting a website to number one?!? how little on page has to do with ranking, once you have got the initial set up.

    Some fantastic information, downloads and responses in here. I am still stuck on my search for finding a free good article spinner, before i give my first link wheel a go, but sense I am getting nearer.

    ah, to be the czar of a gazillion paying sites!

    Im sorry but I disagree with you. I just don't think google is that stupid, infact I did an experiment (kind of) I had a blog which was a blogging help theme, I had 100 articles that I spun with a decent article writer, I then uploaded 5 a day until I hit 100. That blog is around a year old now, google indexed all my pages at one point but now if I do a search I have only have 30 pages in the google index. It gets around 2 UV/day

    Next, I have a computing blog, I have 25 hand written articles by myself, the blog is around 4 months old, it is already a PR1 and although doesnt get much traffic (maybe 20 - 40/day at the mo) it is ranking for several keywords according to webmaster tools.

    I think original content will always be king, spun articles have their place but I'm not convinced that it helps your ranking anywhere near as much as original material does.
