    Hey all! Now, I know we've all read the same old "Does Churn & Burn Still Work" thread a hundred times now, but I've noticed it's generally the same old stuff

    "I made so much money using Churn & Burn! Look at these reports!"

    and then some guy who's upset that it didn't work for him replies

    "No! it doesn't work anymore! Google algos and other reasons why I lost money!"

    As you can see, I haven't found any useful information on the topic thus far, and it's been something I've been looking for real answers on for a while..

    I have in my possession GSA SER and 50+ proxies.
    With these tools, and any others you suggest, is creating a Churn & Burn site still a thing that will make me money?

    Or would I be better off putting my time and energy into creating an actual long lasting site?

    I have a couple of ideas of what I'm trying to rank. Right now, it's an info & eCommerce site about Electronic Cigarettes (cheap to buy & easy to flip & wildly popular) if this information aids anything...

    tl;dr

    churn + burn

    Is it still alive? or has it been dead for a while now?

    I don't know for sure but I am guessing yes. I am bringing GSA back shortly so might give it another go then I can post definitive answer:)

    The biggest problem these days is indexing the backlinks created from it. I am hardly getting any of them indexed and I am literally pulling out my hair. I know I can rank like a boss but the main question is getting those links seen first.

    I've tried most indexing services, I did tiers but nothing seems to work, especially after the indexing update that G carried out a few months ago which crushed many indexing services.

    If anyone has reliable indexing method, I will kiss their hands lol. Literally I stare my screen these days hoping these backlinks would get indexed but that doesn't seem to be happening.

    Everyone that I have spoken too that is successful with churn and burn build 100k links a day to the churn and burn site.

    If you cant spit out that many links idk how good it will work.

    Churn and burn still works, just pick a right parasite and do some good keyword research.

    Most of the time people fail because either they choose wrong keyword or blast millions of direct links or both.

    Personally I go for structure and planning, ie huge silos for a start.

    If you know how to rank churn & burn sites or/and use other promotional methods to draw in traffic, it's still a money-maker.

    You should try everything online, including authority sites and churn and burn.

    Are you using GSA SER alone for Churn & Burn ??

    We have some fast connections (total capacity is nearly 1 Gbits) and I thought that I could check it out. Could you let me know your GSA setup ?

    It still could, especially when good SEO methods are paired with lots of traffic. I heard from a friend who bought his (ultimatewebtraffic.com or traffmaster, your choice) and he said it worked for him. I can't vouch for that though.

    Agree with this, even when I was doing it 6-12 months ago I could see it getting harder and I was having to fire more and more links to get movement.

    That was my idea. Since I'm new to GSA I don't have a setup yet, but as soon as I get going I'll create a journey!
