    A while ago I built a scraper and let it run for fun.
    I've collected 100,024 articles stored in MySQL. 16 different subjects.

    I did use some of them for a while but I've kind of got out of scraped content.

    But I'm thinking rather than waste this, surely there is some easy and useful purpose for this stuff. I am not going to do MFA adsense sites with it as I do not want to jeopardize my other legit sites.

    Any ideas, suggestions?

    ============================
    mysql> select count(*) from articles;
    +----------+
    | count(*) |
    +----------+
    | 100024 |
    +----------+
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)

    mysql> select distinct cat from articles;
    +-------------------------------+
    | cat |
    +-------------------------------+
    | travel |
    | webhosting |
    | finance:credit |
    | finance:bankruptcy |
    | finance:debt-relief |
    | finance:debt-consolidation |
    | realestate:mortgage-refinance |
    | realestate:forclosure |
    | realestate:investing |
    | health:excercise:yoga |
    | health:excercise:aerobics |
    | health:excercise |
    | health:excercise:tennis |
    | casino-gambling |
    | dogs |
    | fashion |

    If you have sites in those niches then blast the articles with your backlinks using software that posts articles and that's it.

    You can't really sell the list since it's not unique.

    Yeah, that's what I pretty much thought. I was wondering if there would be some other more original suggestions.

    Not looking to sell them.

    Use them to get free sex:

    Ctrl+A + Delete ;D

    Go to your wife/girl yell at her for massing up with your files on PC.

    30 min of quiet time

    Make-up SEX!

    Restore the files from the Recyclebin :D

    Run them all through a few batches in TBS. Spin them all to different levels of uniqueness and import to a wordpress blog into their appropriate categories posting a few times per day per category. Setup sep CPA offers based on the category. Send a few blasts to it once in a while and otherwise leave it alone
