Does low quality spun articles have a negative effect on link pyramids? Can the site be sandboxed or slapped per se?

    What I usually recommend is unique content for your money site, well spun content for your Tier 1 links, and then you can usually use lower quality spinning for any Tier 2 or lower links.

    I think very poorly spun tier 1 links have the potential to lead to your site getting slapped. Although why would you ever use poorly spun content to begin with?

      That's what I thought...I'm having someone create a link pyramid for me and he spun my articles to 70% uniqueness where it's absolutely non-sense. He's trying to convince me that it doesn't matter how readable the articles are.

      Why would you ever use spun content at all?

      Maybe right now google can't pick up on how your tier 2 is all spun content, but if you think in the next few years google wont be able to pick that up, you're crazy. People thought blog networks would be fine too....

      I can pump out a 400 word unique article in under 10 mins, why not build some real authority and use a long term strategy rather than try and get 15 mins of fame..

      Why would you use non readable content for tier 2 if you wouldn't do it for tier 1?
      If you think it costs too much time to build content on tier 2 and tier 3 then think again because G only passes link juice if there is some juice worth passing on. If after the Penguine update G is now able to recognize low quality content on tier 1 of a pyramid why do you think it cannot detect it on tier 2? You could probably actually save your time to build tier 2 if there is only low quality content because it does not pass anything on if there is no good content. Sorry, but that is what I think ...

    Penguin update was about two things IMO, over optimization of anchor text and links from sources that have poor quality score; spun content being a thing that brings down the quality score of a site - I would say do NOT use un-readable spun content for direct link building to your money site.

    Manually build quality web 2.0s as tier 1s *with videos + images*, build less quality web 2.0s for tier 2s *should still be some what read-able content though* and build blog comments/status updates/profile links for the tier 2s as tier 3.

      I believe he is only using spun content on tier to sites.

    I usually use spun articles in tires to build link pyramids. I don't get any slap till now.

    Better check spun article before posting. Check every word/phrases if it really makes sense. Also make sure to use words that is not really complicated or that can be use in spinning.

    To what degree do you spin your article? It is good to spin your article up to 65%+ and even more efficient if you spin different titles, descriptions where applicable, sentences and paragraph.

    Never heard of sandbox as a result of spinning but Google slap is inevitable if that crap content is the only source of link you have.

    After penguin update it is necessary to use original content as possible as you can. As per my thought it is very useful and beneficial if you use different content or article for link pyramid, rather than spun article or content.

    It depends on which tier they are lying... Although, spun articles have very less positive impact. They are easily discarded by search engines in ranking and readers as well. If you really want to include spun article into your campaign, proofread them before publishing.

    If you want to get the both visitors and good link juices. Then you should have to write unique articles.

      Ok, looks like the general consensus is use original articles even when utilizing link pyramids.

      I've just started my niche sites 2-3 weeks ago and non of them have been ranked at this point. I believe mostly due to no backlinking yet. A question I have is how many people have been able to get their niche site ranked fairly quickly? I've been told on another forum that big G is just all over the board lately with indexing, ranking and it seems like a lot of the newer sites like mine are not showing up at all even with backlinks.

      Since I personally don't have much time to write unique articles, I don't want to throw a bunch of money at a site not knowing if the topic will do will in the first place.

      Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!

        It's going to take much longer than 2-3 weeks to be ranked.

    Of course. Poor quality spun content screams SPAM to Google and they will put your site where it should be (sandbox or even worse de-index).

    Hello...As per my view spun article is not good at all. If you want to create link wheel, for getting some good benefit than you must have to use some good and quality content. As Google is very strict now a days, so we can't take any chance.
