Why Is A PBN Website Auto-Blogging Videos?

By April

 

In the 160th episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked why a PBN website was auto-blogging videos, even though the videos did not appear to be syndicating.

The exact question was:

Brad, I was reverse engineering a few of your links that lead to the G-Site for Virgina SEO. It led me to an obvious PBN that is being used. I don't want to name it here since I don't think it matters. I noticed that the website has what appears to be it's own social syndication ring of various 2.0 properties such as blogger, wordpress, etc. But it also appears that the site is auto blogging videos? Why? Those videos don't appear to be syndicating and I assume that is on purpose.

Hi guys, I am trying to understand more about drive stacks. When creating the articles as part of the drive stacks should the content be unique?
