Seems to me that the more Google/Bing/Yahoo update their algorithms the more people who use blasting software get hammered. Back in the day all you needed was a few articles, TBS, Senuke, and SB and you could blast almost any site up in the rankings. Today I see with my work that this thinking is doing as much harm as good to my sites. Worse yet, since I deal with long-term money sites rather than churn and burn sites I can't afford to gamble and lose. So what I have noticed happening is people keep "following Google" with how they use their tools. First they started saying articles need to be longer. Then they said they need to be more unique, then they said they need to be human readable, then they started saying to add photos and unique videos... essentially making using automatic tools so time-consuming it's almost become pointless. If it takes me longer to spin an "ultra spun" article than it would just to write 15 different new articles I'm just going to write the articles. And if I need to tweak the settings on my software and create and load tons of unique videos then I might as well just post that crap up myself along with the articles I just wrote. Especially if 5 very HQ links are better than 50 mediocre ones by some software My point is that the software is NOT able to give me the quality of content that Google demands anymore without taking almost as much time/work as simply manually posting using my own two hands. Almost everything is getting slapped and if you care about your money site, you only want the best possible content going to it. So manual seems to be the only future unless somebody invents something for writing/spinning that entirely changes the game.
