    A couple of questions, though, regarding the quote above:

    1) Why are you trying to avoid building backlinks as much as you can? Does the "Content Is King" approach prohibit such behaviour?

    2) What type of links are the "safe backlinks" that you may reach out for? Does this mean you intend to ask for links? To buy them? Or what?
    In regard to your questions:

    1) Any link which has not been given by free will is pretty much against Google Guidelines, exchanges, brought etc.. though sometimes a email to ask someone to add a link if they have used you work is usually considered ok.

    2)Answered above the ones that you have not exchanged, brought, spammed etc the best way is to write something no one else has, or if it's a popular subject then improve on it in your own way. Some people can write creatively some people are kinda stale.. the write monologue which works for certain types of sites. I prefer excitement personally

    Actually, 100-200 articles per month is the very definition of content spam, so Martin needs not apologize for calling it what it is. I read an article about a casino owner who wasn't allowed into his own casino - who cares? Google does, because the article contains tons of casino-related long tails and semantic keywords.

    Not that it won't work. It will. Especially if some of the content will get shared on social media. The hyperproduction of vaguely relevant content will be a strong signal to Google that the site is good and fresh, and it will therefore be easier to rank for the important keywords.

    I for one am looking forward to seeing the progress of this experiment.

    Yes, that is to kick off the site and gain some natural backlinks quickly, there will not be 100-200 of these type of articles per month, once the base is built out then more work will go into long 1000+ word articles,.. I have a much better plan than that, you will see as it grows. but like yourself I am interested to see if it works as the only other information out there is the generic old school way of building. I feel it will. although many disagree I do think it's possible to build a high ranking site within the guidelines and without building/buying backlinks.. however it has to be big.

    A Small 20-40 page site wouldn't have the same effect and agree that backlink building might be the way to go.

    Some stats, Not showing much as the site is still under a week old, I expect to see an uptick after the end of week 2.

    6 days have past and we have had 269 visits, 102 referred "most from this thread" 86 direct, most likely my writers checking the site, and a meager 55 Organic mostly from google but a couple from bing, though the number is small the site is brand new and the entrance keywords were all powerful Casino related. Social we have had 26 visits. I have not really pushed the social side but will implement this soon.

    Webmaster Tools Stats

    Last update was the 14th so not much to show, showing 21 indexed pages, site command shows 38, search analytics have not updated since the 10th, page crawl 207-157-160 for the last 3 days, this crawl will include tags, categories, aff links etc all which have been no indexed. average CTR is at 3.08% and average position 275, I expect this to change on the next WMT update.

    I don't see how the amount of articles can be seen as spam. If the articles themselves are irrelevant then it would be, but having a larger site doesn't equate to spam.

    Small WMT update which is showing figures from the 10th, Average position is 137, big positive increase from nearly 300.. however with more content this should fluctuate quite a bit, impressions have dropped clicks and rankings increased, all in all for the first week not to bad, after week two is when i should start to see some decent traction.

    Referral 114(38.64%)
    Direct 90(30.51%)
    Organic Search 65(22.03%)
    Social 26(8.81%)

    Wow, this growth is so fast, me, who is still in the state of doing everything myself, manages aboout 50-80 000 words a month maybe, but just lately started to focus more on one website rather than just doing little on many sites.

    This is really interesting information, and I agree that lots of content doesnt necessarily mean spam, thats a ridiculous assumption, google loves content and hates bad content, if you get tons of good content, why would it be spam?

    I think the content is king approach is interesting, I focus alot as well on writing as much as i can, spending little to no time building links, other than just posting some reddit, tumblr etc and exchanging with some friends.

    Gonna follow this one, really interesting to see how you do it

    Cheers!

    Just a quick update, Traffic is slowly building, average pos of 34.. when this gets to sub 20 we should see some movement, however i do expect this to bounce up and down for at least 2 months, Keyword rankings have started coming in, all casino related keywords and so far starting to look impressive for under 2 weeks.

    Impressions are important too, you can have a certain ranking for a keyword, but take time to increase in the impressions slice of the cake you are getting. So it would be interesting if you could show how impressions grow over time as well as ranking.

    e.g. 3 months ago I was at number 8 for a keyword, getting 600 imps per month, now I'm at 5.7 and getting 1250 imps. This has been the case across a number of keywords, so it's impressions and rankings that grow over time as Google starts to trust your site more.

    For me the easiest and most accurate way is Google Search Console/WMT
    You see clicks, impressions per key, click trough rate, positions and you can compare in a limited timeline

    WMT for impressions, also gives you lots of keyword data, I am getting between 125-150 impressions daily, but only 4% click through on average due to the positions.. which is averaged at 35... but the site has not matured yet, I expect this week to start moving more.. the ranking tool is SEO MOJO for Android, it's handy to have.

    Some keywords I have on the front page of google already but let's see how long that sticks Yahoo and Bing seem to have indexed most of my pages and for some pretty good keywords, I think the part EMD domain has something to do with this and it's relevancy, Google doesn't seem to be giving weight to this, well not yet at least

    Similarweb says you have 10k visits/month. Which is less than my puny site. Clearly it's incorrect!

    I remember checking Alexa once and it told me that 60% of my traffic was from Mexico (in reality the overwhelming majority is from the USA).

    These web tools can't be trusted

    Thanks for the info on the app, luckily I have an Android phone haha.

    I use wincher.com but thats a paid service, and they only have a sit, not an app, and it only checks google. This app is awesome!

    How comes 100 - 200 good quality articles per month is spam, as long as its not spun/rehash garbage content then where is the spam in that?
    I will be watching your progress as you go along with your new project. My main reason for that is to see how one can succeed in this niche without building back links, although if you promote the articles on social networks then you will get social signal from those.

    Best of luck with your project!

    Im not sure on average Casino deposits per signup, Sports I do well so this is something I will tweak once traffic is up, 50 would be a good round number based on 5,000 visitors monthly to start -"1%", I'm not sure how realistic that is with Casino it will be a case of trial and error but going by my experience this is what i would be aiming for with this particular site.

    Really interesting thread and must say that your site looks really good, you actually inspires me to increase my sites with more valuable content.
    Which theme are you using, looks a bit like Flytonic (that I use) but at the same time not..
    My casinosites - eCasinos - SvenskaMobilCasino - Mobilspelare -
    Looking for some casino adventures or some funny games for your smartphone, look no further..
