    Syndicated content vs. Spun content as Tier 1 Web 2.0 filler content


    Hello,

    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

    Have you purchased a 2010 SEO book or watched some out of date videos ?
    This type of SEO work really has little impact now plus runs a high risk of you getting a penalty.

    Others may disagree with me here but I would stop what your doing as your in danger of damaging your money site.

    I would try a mix of spun and the syndicated content and do it as a test....google controls for these things frequently change, so that would be your best bet to get that answer. People have tried what you're talking about ...but its increasingly hard to find success that way unless in you're in a really tiny niche where there is not a lot of content around the target topic...the links from the sites may work for a bit but google is pretty well adept at this point at discounting those types of links...

    Thank you very much for your advice. It is a test site, so I think I am going to try this, just to see what happens.

    Thank for your answer.

    Yes, I was thinking about mixing things. I have already started this test, and the site has begun to rank, to gain several positions; I am using now some expired blogspot and over-blog blogs with godd TF (TF < 10, TF/CF < 0.75)
