Revolving Content - An old concept?

    Hey guys,
    I read a very interesting ebook the other night (forget the name now) that came out a few years ago. It's main gist was basically taking the techniques the adult webmasters use and applying them to non-adult websites. Most of it was in regards to traffic trading etc. but there was a very interesting part about using revolving content to boost traffic and keep content appearing 'fresh'.

    What I was wondering was, if you took that concept and applied it to a blog or affiliate website for SEO purposes, whether this could be a long term winner in keeping rankings high on autopilot.

    Essentially, you'd create about 3 months worth of fresh content (a unique blog post every other day maybe for each longtail kw phrase you can find) and have a script drip the content out over the course of the first month. Then once google has seen you adding fresh content, you then drip out another month worth of content over the top of the older content. (When I say 'over the top of' I mean that the page title and tags don't change, but the content within does - as if it's been updated, you'll see what I mean in a minute).

    Then once you have completely replaced month 1's content with month 2's content, the script starts to drip out month 3's content over the top of month 2 until you are finally back at month 1 again, three months later. As far as google will see, you will have had 3 months worth of fresh content and spider visits should be frequent so the most recent content will always be in googles cache.

    This process just keeps repeating itself over and over again on autopilot so that both google and visitors to the site keep seeing a regularly updated site with 'fresh' unique content.

    The only problem I can see is that while it will take 3 months for this cycle to complete, month 1's content will dissapear for two months at a time. Any scraper that has lifted this content during month one and put it permanently on their site will look to have original content during month 2 and 3. When month 1's content returns in month 4, google may see it as duplicate content, as it is already indexed on the scrapers website.

    Would there be any way to combat this? Disabling RSS or maybe building a good deal of backlinks to the page, so that by the time the content returns to the page, it already looks to be the authority page in google's eyes?

    What are your thoughts on this concept?
