    If i am building links with spun content, even if it is poorly spun, does the backlink still count? Even if it is somewhat duplicate do the backlinks i build count.

    Yes the backlink will count, now chances are that you will see all kinds of content is king n00bs coming in this thread telling you that your content needs to be HQ and relevant, it really doesn't, i have tested this many times and nothing in my data seems to point that way, but then again you should take my words with a grain of salt too, i could be bullshitting you, so do your own tests, i know it takes times to get conclusive results, but i promise your data shows you more then these n00bs here will ever provide

    Good luck

    "Poorly spun" sounds bad. I used to google translate content from other languages and then make it more or less readable.

    Yes it's still counted. Duplicate content means you're leaving big footprints.

    Try to stay away from spun content specially if it is "poorly spun". This mistake can harm your SERPS and site.

    In layman's language, yes, the backlinks will count. However, on manual review of the backlinks, there is higher probability of penalization compared to unique HQ content. But then there is anyway a risk of penalty if there is a manual review. So, it does not matter a lot. I personally recommend a middle path i.e. using a high quality spinner like WordAI or SpinRewriter instead of all the risks.

    Yes, the backlink will count for the immediate future but long term viability of such a link is questionable. Go for unique content, it will keep your backlinks indexed for longer time.

    Yes, it will be counted. In the view of link count - Article and backlinks are 2 different entities.
