    Hi I'm pretty new to IM, I'm trying to rank a site in a niche where there's pretty much no blogs or forums related to it. The authority sites in it have links from old irrelevant dead angel fire blogs and directories from 1996 with PA90+. So I'm looking at different options for gaining authority, and I don't quite want to get into managing a huge PBN right now.

    Can someone explain how scrapebox and GSA are used to generate backlinks for your site? Can I use just one tool until my budget allows for the second purchase? I really don't need much I'm targetting some really low competition keywords, it's just on page seo puts me at 20 when I want to hit page 1.

    I can tell you a little bit about how you can use scrapebox, but I've never used GSA.

    You can think of scrapebox as a search engine on steroids. Whatever terms you put into it, scrapebox will return thousands of results for those terms. So if you wanted to find guest posting opportunities in your niche, you would simply type, for example, "niche keyword + guest blogging guidelines." Or some similar combination of "submit a guest post" or even just "guest post" to see if the site regularly allows guest posting.

    If you want to find an image directory, you can try "niche keyword + upload your image." Just another example of a way you might want to build a backlink.

    Whatever you are looking for, scrapebox can quickly find thousands of results.

    You can also use it to find broken links, expired blogs, or even use it to scrape emails, images, videos, articles, keywords, etc.

    A lot of people also use its comment poster function. You can search for websites in your niche that allow comments in several different ways, but one way is "niche keyword + leave a comment." Now you can either manually go through and add comments/spun comments using the manual poster feature. Or you can create spun comments & fake names, then use the automatic posting feature. <---This is pretty much spamming, but you can use it in a way that makes it less spammy, of course. I personally would not send those type of spammy links directly to my money site, but to a lower tier instead.

    There are lots of other things you can do as well. I suggest you check out the tutorials by Loopline on Youtube.

    Scrapebox is my favorite tool, ever. Absolutely, completely worth the money, in my opinion. But it does have a learning curve. It will probably take most people a few weeks of regular use before they can get the maximum value out of it.

    Also, you can get a special BHW member discount if you go to http://www.scrapebox.com/bhw

    TCkc nailed scrapebox.

    GSA is more of a swiss-army knife of link-building. Articles, Blog comments, Web 2.0s, whatever your after - SER does it.

    Scrapebox compliments it in that you can use it to build link-lists to plug into GSA.
