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.
