I am trying to create several relevant webs 2.0 blogs (blogspot, over-blog, tumblr and wordpress) as Tier 1 links; some of them are expired, some are brand new, with keywords optimized URLs. I want to make them as relevant as possible to the keywords I target, but I've got that content problem.
I know, original, hand made content is the best option, but, as I don't have enough time and money for that, I am forced to find a quick solution to the relevance issue. So, I tested several spinning software, but I ended up editing the spun versions, taking plenty of time, and I decided eventually to use nonedited spun content only for Tier 2.
This is why I've thought about syndicating some articles (not the entire article, but only a fragment of around 500 words of it). Each article will have a nofollow link/URL citation at the bottom, pointing to the source website, and maybe an introductory line above the article body (not mandatory, only if I have time for that).
Could these syndicated articles help me create relevant and decent themed web 2.0 properties? I imagine them as some "information hubs" targeting a certain niche, with plenty of useful content (youtube videos with some short comments, shared articles, etc.), something like Facebook pages (not original but highly relevant shared content).
Has anybody tried this before?
Or, what do you think is worse as filler content for Tier 1 web 2.0s - spun content, or syndicated content?
Thank you very much
