    hello,

    so i am building a link push using web2.0s.

    my tier 1 is spun articles taht is very reader freindly (over 60-70percent uniqueness)

    my second tiers are spun but unreadable. im working on more tierss in the near future.

    my tiers have only 1 post from 500 to 1000 wordcount. pictures and embed videos included.

    i have read on previous threads that some members update their web2.0s with more content.

    what is the purpose of updating web 2.0s? i assume it is more more linkjuice. but if that is the case, wouldnt it be wiser to spend the time building more web2.0s.?

    i think i am missing something here. any adivice is greatly appreciated.

    Well a link is a link and having bunches of links is good especially if they are relevant to your money site.

    However, the REAL idea (according to the powers that be) is to have a high quality link back to your site. What looks like more quality to you?

    100 web 2.0's with one article and a link back to one site OR a well developed blog with multiple articles that has good content with a link back to your site?

    I think that blogs with good fleshed out content that at least "look" like a real person is maintaining it holds more value than several weaker sites IMO....But pushing a bunch of 1 article web 2.0's to a good cluster of fleshed out web 2.0's might be a good combo.

    Updating your web 2.0 properties gives them more authority over time. They are like any other website, the more unique, quality and updated content that they have, the more weight they will carry.

    Secondly, in many niches you can also rank your web 2.0 properties on the 1st serp. Thus, taking more of the available spots and reducing your competition.

    I would suggest that you spin your content better than 60% or 70%. I always go for 100% spun content. Which you can do by using two similar sentences. Then spin at the word level and the sentence level for 100% spun content. It is more work, yet well worth the effort.

    Google loves updated blogs. Abandoned blogs are not as important. Consider your own site for a moment as though it were your web2.0s ... would Google love your site more if you updated with fresh content? Sure.

    So the first reason to update your blogs is the freshness of new content being added makes the blog better, simply because it is obvious to Google that the site is being updated and maintained.

    Second reason is because you increase the topicality of your site. If you have a niche site, do you want links from other sites that are in your specific niche, or do you want links from general topic websites? You should want links from the same niche. Google keeps track of the keyword densities of all the pages of a website. You could go into webmaster tools and it tells you how many times certain words are used throughout the site. The same works for blogs. So if you have a blog with 10 pages of content, and they're all related, your blog gets a boost for topicality, and that makes its outgoing links to your site more powerful (you have more relevant links).

    Third reason to update your blogs is because everyone and their neighbor creates one page link pyramids. That is the model all the SEO software uses, wham-bam one page hit and run jobs leaving the site abandoned thereafter. That is a footprint that Google can use to determine whether your links are coming from SEO software. On the other hand, if you have an updated blog -- Google knows your blogs are different than most which are used for SEO purposes, which will probably give your blogs more power to their outbound links.

    Fourth reason to update your blogs is your site SHOULD have more than 1 page of content. You should be adding content regularly, or at least have at least 5 to 10 pages if you're making a micro niche site. Each of your pages will have different content related to the same niche. Each of those pages should be promoted. How? Make a new page on your web2.0s to promote each of the pages on your niche site.

    It just makes sense to have updated web2.0s, abandoned blogs are certain to have less importance in Google's algorithm -- if nothing else it just makes sense that it would be the case.

    Yes updating your blogs are good but you have to also remember that each time you create a new web 2.O, you are also creating a new domain essentially.

    One domain under wordpress, isn't going to do much for you even if you had thousands of pages
