    I'm still fairly new to doing all of my website work myself. Usually I pay for it. On Google, I've found many websites that offer free automatic backlink generators. You just type in your website and click GENERATE and boom... you get over 100 free backlinks. I've read that the google algoythm can see what backlinks are good and which are bad. Also, Google can penalize your ranking if it deems that they are bad. Is any of this true? Have any of you used a backlink generator?

    Also, there are websites like SubmitStart where you type in your domain name and it automatically submits your domain to all of the major search engines. Waste of time?

    Most of those backlinks make your site to be considered as spam. Instead of wasting time submitting to thousands of search engines, I would focus on Google, Bing and Yahoo

    The most famous search engines are google, yahoo and bing. Instead of targeting too many sites you should concentrate on few. And yes while you generate links from generators, most of them are spam, and it may harm your rank too.

    1. It is waste of time to submit your site on all of the search engines, just focus on major ones such as Google, Bing/ Yahoo and rest ones will auto crawl your site.

    2. Yes Google can penalize your site if your domain is new and they detect bunch of backlinks in a short period of time.

    He had found sites like ping-clan.com, for indexing, where you can submit a site and they send it to big number of indexing sites like any other indexer is doing, just online. Those guys present those links like free links or whatever. It is not so big deal for that kind of links, since X services and softwares is based on same principle.

    better focus on google, yahoo and bing like other suggested. Its always good to get a quality backlink with high authority domain. So better do your work manually
