    I have a few Private Blog Network sites.
    The content on PBN is just for google to crawl right? So is it OK to post spun content?

    Yes... and no. You could use spun content on your PBN, but what would the point of that be? You could get a bunch more for your time if you used suitable content. Think of the sites in your PBN as their own money sites. They need to be nice looking, nice to the touch, nice to the readers. Pretend your goal is to rank the sites in your PBN for your niche keywords.

    I think if you use Word AI Turing spinner you should be ok because it spins human readable content

    Here is a video showing how to use it and how it passes copyscape http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrhcxLsP2MM

    I disagree. I do spun content that passes copyscape and have never had an issue. If you're doing a remotely large PBN, you could get super busy trying to make each one look legit. Do as little work as possible and focus on more important SEO activities.

    It's up to you but think of what the objective is of a PBN. The goal is to build high quality sites with high quality content. Yes, you can use spun content but I'd at take the extra step to make sure it's at least 80% unique and very readable. The last thing you want to do is invest your time and money into building the sites and then get a duplicate content penalty.

    I personally just use Web 2.0's and write 500+ words for each of them every few days. It takes some time, but is worth it in the end. I TRY to rank my Web 2.0's for the same keywords. That way, I can dominate the SERPs -- and when I send the links to my main money site, it is a huge plus for me.

    I guess I take a more whitehat approach, but slow link building has shown better signs for me. :)

    I wouldn't use spun content on the PBN sites because they will likely be hit by an update later on rendering them useless. It really depends if you are in it for the long haul or not. You will probably see quick results with spun content but they will likely not stick.

    I've found that spun content is okay for lower tiers in the network, but like others have said it's all about high quality spinning. I've found it's worth it to pay extra for super-spun articles (paragraph level spins, sentence level spins, phrase level spins, word level spins, etc) that all read extremely well when spun. But for higher tiers in the network the smartest approach is to use unique high quality content, it's worth the extra money.

    Yes, of course. I only have 10-20 sites that I would feel comfortable pointing to my main money sites. Each web 2.0 has a few unique links pointing at it. The tier two links are spun content, but I do it manually. Takes a few hours per article, but I can publish it on almost all of the sites.
