    Hi black hat world i wanted to ask the community a question about website creation and share my experience as well. In the past i have used some black hat methods to promote websites with some short lived success. some of the websites attained many backlinks and for a short while had a significant amount of visitors but this quickly dwindled. I then moved onto auto blogging to get more content thinking this would keep my website at the top of the serps and keep the visitors a little engaged (my goal is to really just get visitors to my blog associated with my business website which sells medical supplies). Now i have come to realize that as people have said all along duplicate content from autoblogging doesnt really engage visitors with some obvious exceptions and for some black hatters that are able to create truely user friendly and unique websites with autoblogging. So now im thinking of completely deleting the thousands of posts on the blog associated with my business and paying real content authors to write content. The idea i had was to have people write content relating to medical illnesses or health issues that would drive visitors looking for information on those health issues who may also be interested in buying products that i was selling. My question is what peoples experience has been with purchased original content. Does it really work in driving in customers or users who will then click on other parts of a website. I am thinking of making a large investment in this as a last ditch effort as truthfully my only other option would be to try to write my own content which would probably be better in quality but would take years to fill all the article topics that im interested in covering.
    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Disclaimer: I will do my best not to sound very biased in my opinion as I am operating a content writing business among my other services.

    I have so many clients who have switched from autoblogging to buying unique and fresh content. On the other side, it does really make sense. Why? Let's use a little bit of an analogy here. Let's say you and your partner watched a movie. Yes, you watched the exact same movie. When you out of the cinema, are you still excited to tell the story of what you watched to your partner? Oh, yes, you may still talk about it with your partner but your level of excitement in telling the story is not the same as when you're telling it to someone who haven't watched that movie yet. You have that high-level of excitement in telling the other person because you know you can give him or her a "wow" based on your facial expression and how you tell the story, in general.

    Same thing goes with content. If your visitors already read that piece of news from the originating site and it so happen that your autoblogging software syndicates that news and posts it on your blog, of course, your visitor will skip that one and move to the next news, or worst, your visitor will exit from your entire site and go to another website.

    I think you already get what I mean here regarding the advantage of posting fresh content on your site, whether it's your money-site or your web 2.0 blog.

    I hope that helps.

    Imo autoblogging and content spamming probably would not work in the long run with all of the Big G's updates. Also if you are int he health niche i think it might be morally wrong to give misleading info.
    Just my two cents.

    I have one site with hundreds of original articles that gets ZERO hits from Google, as in none. I have paid a few thousand $$$$ for the content and that content is really well written and 100% unique. I have built the site completely following the Google guidelines and have not built a single link.

    Google is updating and changing their algo way too often for me to keep repeating this costly exercise, there are tons of other ways to make money.

    Of course, if you want to build large, solid site, then original content is the only way to go, but then make sure you have enough $$$ until you see some return. It could take months and even years and make no mistake, you could fail too even after spending tons of money or time writing the content yourself.

    If you are already making good money, then sure, build sites with original content on the side, hopefully, it will pay off one day

    If readers get most of their answers in your contents then you can be at the top hopefully for all related terms.So try writing unique and user friendly.But if you invest make sure some how you profit from that.

    Content is king, makes it much more efficient to rank your website at the same time giving you more protection from getting slapped by the big G.

    Edit: If you're going to buy some I highly recommend IpresenceBiz, they are awesome I use them for all of my writing needs.

    The point is that if you want to build quality site that will survive ANY update, then all you have to do is keep adding content day in day out for years. A friend of mine did it, he hasn't built a single link on his own and is now making a few thousand Euros per month from Adsense.

    The moment you start adding links, you are taking a chance, Google will come up with yet another BS update and your site could lose all its traffic in a split second. This was basically the "philosophy" behind this "project," I have plenty of other sites with tons of links. Lol, I hope this makes sense

    So your saying not to make links? just to let a website with good content do its own thing? ie white hat?

    spinning content is becoming less useful; especially for hard to rank for keywords. I use original hand written content and sometimes i buy articles. Make sure the provider is not spinning articles and calling them "hand-written". Best way to check is with copyscape or some copy checker.

    It is definitely worth, You just need to think about yourself. Would you like to read an article which don't get you information, just random shit?

    And also google love great content.

    User friendly content will keep visitors on your site longer, and reduce your bounce rate. Plus it will also increase the chances of someone sharing your page, so yes it is worth it.

    Yes and yes. If it doesn't help you rank then you are doing something else Google doesn't like.

    That said, you probably shouldn't bother if you're one of those guys who's going to pay $1/500 words. You'll get Engrish for that.

    Go to Textbroker and submit articles to the level 4 category or go to Constant-Content and make a public request if you have the money.

    As far as finding writers here or on other forums, keep in mind that "native English speaker" doesn't mean that the person has a firm grasp on written English. Most native English speakers have fairly poor written grammar skills.
