    I was doing well until the big update last year. I was using GSA ranker to create my tier 1 sites and i get hit really hard! So I decided to take a different approach, I created around 100 web 2.0 sites manually with unique content, along with images and videos and 1 to 2 links pointing to authority sites, it took about 2 weeks to get done. My second tier I created 300 web 2.0 sites pointing to my 1st tier using UD and fiverr, I used GSA Ranker as my tier 3. Most of my keywords are in the top 5 and holding steadily..

    Learn the system, before the system take you under!!

    Since the update being the recent proclaimed Penguin 4.0 or the Payday loan 2.0?

    As for the work, congratulations, alot of work though it appears to have paid off. How competitive are the search terms?

    My post is more about the strategy I used to get all of my ranking. I mention gsa because of what I did last year, I solely used gsa and paid the price for it! That's all I was saying

    When you created the web 2.0 sites did you use other hyperlinks other than your main keywords, i.e click here, read my blog etc?? Was the content unique

    It's good to know that gsa is a solid program and that you're able to keep high rankings with it.

    It was like that long time bro.
    ALWAYS make fist layer manually with hand written content. And do the rest with tools and spun content.

    Do you all this system is working still. Lets see how Panda 4.0 will affect this way of work this time. I am eager to see people posting about the damages that they got by the Panda 4.0.

    Some of my burn and churn sites improved recently. GSA was the only tool used on them. I can't get high rankings in really competitive niches with GSA, though to be fair I stopped trying some time ago. But churn and burn... Still seems a viable option.

    I decided to do a personal case study with a parasite page. I was targeted a 2k a month KW, but ended up ranking on page 4 of a 40k a month KW. My rankings are doing OK across the board.

    My site? 1,000 words of spun garbage courtesy of Kontent Machine. My strategy? Blast 100% pure low quality backlinks to the site from GSA SER 24/7 non stop with virtually no filters.

    Needless to say I'm impressed it worked at all. The site isn't rank that well yet, but it's nearing page 1 for some high traffic terms. Haven't seen any negative affects from this last update.

    The articles on web 2.0 are spun or hand written? How did you get the content. I am curious.

    All of them unique?
