    This question is directed towards people who are ranking high for their keywords. Mine are


    • Have all sites in 1 webmaster tools account.
    • Have all sites on the same web host.
    • Drip-feed a few hundred spam backlinks a week along with the high quality ones.

    I've been doing this for years and still haven't had any problems

    1. Spun, Re-Spun, and downright "WTF is THAT?" content. Not for tier 1 or below...ON THE MONEY SITE ITSELF...
    Content is NOT king. It is for users, not ranking. Format of content is important but not the content itself, UNLESS of course you want to develop a relationship with visitors (i.e. mailing lists, join a forum, etc.) then obviously you need something they will want to read and show interest in.

    2. Lots of Sape...And then some. Absolutely one of the cheapest and most efficient ways to gain authority.

    You mean for churn n' burns... right?

    How do people buy your products if they can't even comprehend what they're about to purchase?

    1. Spinning when done right = produces 100+ versions of an article, each being 90%+ unique, human readable and can pass manual moderation at any time. I use all the versions in my web 2.0-s without any problems at all of deletion, indexing or ranking. It costs me $80 for such a spintax and I can populate 100+ web 2.0-s at once, but if I would follow everyone's advice of using only unique content, it would cost me AT LEAST $500 for 100 articles and those $5 articles would be most of the time crap anyway.

    2. Keyword density = Ever since I followed phpbuilt's advice on his authority guide on keyword density, site structure, keyword weighting, internal linking etc... I was able to LITERALLY double my income and ranks. Find his thread, it's pure gold. I am not affiliated with him or anything (hell he doesn't even have any service being sold in BST), just sharing my experience. I have no idea why many people bash him and say it doesn't work. It works for me and countless others I have asked.

    3. Pure SPAM still works! Churn and burn still works! 301 redirection with SAPE links still works! Parasite sites still work!
    The way of doing things might have changed, but all of the above still work wonders and will continue to do so, yet countless people follow Google's shitty propaganda and say it doesn't work anymore.

    4. You only need a PBN nowadays to rank = not true, I still rank many keywords on first page just with web 2.0 links and tiered linkbuilding. It's true that the majority of those keywords' competition is either medium or low, but they are really profitable. Keyword research is the key!
    Speaking of tiered linkbuilding, that still works as well and GSA is my favorite tool for those campaigns.

    LOL...Use your imagination more!

    I DO NOT mean for churn and burns. These sites are going strong. Some are 2+ years old now. Never been penalized.

    People end up buying products because they click on the ads that I display. Those ads have NO BEARING on the content that is indexed.

    I am NOT against sites with quality content. I've done those before and will no doubt do more in the future. BUT...for affiliate marketing a website is often just a quick means to an end. My goal with these sites is NOT to engage the user but move them on to an offer or products which will meet their needs. It's the KISS rule. The one and only goal is to move them forward, which is exactly what I do.

    I don't do ecommerce or review sites, etc...I get content to rank (lots of long tails) and move the user on to monetize them.

    FORMAT of content is important. Quality is not. OF COURSE, my sites would get whacked with a manual review. But I've seen LOTS of people who also got whacked with nothing but high quality content. Personally I choose to not waste my time building quality content when I can produce 1000's of pages of it quickly.

    To each his own...

    I don't really see how not having all sites in 1 webmaster tools account or not have all sites on the same web host can help you SEO, so you should really double check the expertise of those who advised that.

    Lots of spam on all tiers and low quality spun content even on tier 1, but not the money site although that might change soon.

    Spamming other sites always seems to work. Yes you should not but hey, if it works, then why stop?

    The logic behind it is that if one site gets penalized by google, all of your other site will get closely reviewed for spam etc. because google can see that they are all owned by the same person

    Having all sites in one webmaster tools account is not a bad idea. I was told by some one in this forum that Google or any other search engine does not provide (WMT) Webmaster Tool as a means to track violator's. As per my point of view it is not necessary, One can link his all site in one webmaster account and this will not effect anything at all.

    It's about what is negative potentially, as well as what is potentially positive.

    I agree with every single word said here :D. Not believing people are just outing it for free but google propaganda will always win which is good for us ;)

    THUNDERELVI + Conrulez = GOLD (Y)


    As for having all websites in webmaster tools, if you build a lot of websites in the same manner and one gets banned, all of the others will get banned. Popular member here (imshir or something like that) had 11 websites all with +200 articles. He was making +750$/day. One of the site got thin affiliate penalty which is okay, however, all of the other took the same penalty in the same day. He went to 0$/day

    Some of those websites didn't even have any backlinks built unlike the first one got penalty

    So, I would say take caution

    I guess he can't believe you can't produce hundreds of spun articles that will pass human moderation. Which is pretty weird as it's 2011 method ! However, I can't believe you are doing all of this for backlinks !! Algorithms can't understand articles you know

    @charliebrooker : Just spin each sentence to 5 variation. And them give each word 3 variations. All manually of course and you will have the article Thunderelvi is talking about. Perfectly readable and highly unique
