    I've hooked my first SEO client and have BARELY $700 to blow right now on SEO software. I could buy Senuke on a month to month, or save up and buy their lifetime maybe... but I'd also like to consider buying a few cheaper softwares together to make a good basic library.

    So here is the meat of this OP question: What are a handful of tools that I could all buy for under $700 and get better bang for my buck and just buying monthly Senuke?

    One time payment tools such as:

    AMR
    BMD
    Scrapebox
    SEO Link Robot (One time or Monthly) - This will soon replace Senuke X in my opinion !

    There are a few others which members will list i'm sure since i'm in the middle of something :)

    I just wanted to post back in with a few that I have been heavily considering.

    But here's the list of the most interesting so far. What are these best used for, and which would you buy?

    Magic Submitter
    Article Marketing Robot
    UBot Studio ( REALLY want opinions on this... looks different than all the others)
    SEO Link Robot (I'm skeptical about this one)
    Venomseo Pro (and I am VERY skeptical about the stability and sticking of this one)
    LinkWheel Bandit (Not sure it's fully baked)
    Sick Submitter (seems cheap, but not very deep)

    Anyway... let me know what you think of these and which you would buy if you were in my position. Thanks.

    Scrapebox is a must, at least for me, I blast all my lower tiers with scrapebox (use the BHW discount). AMR is good for this as well.

    BMD is good too, I usually bookmark the higher tiers to get stuff indexed.

    You will want some service that will allow you to automate some of your web2.0 stuff, such as nuke x, seo link robot, venom, linkpushing, linkwheel bandit. So that you can build your higher tiers.

    If you are working at ranking one site, all the software may be overkill, and you would probably benefit from a variety of services.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I need to buy the software because I'm not only working on an SEO client, but because I will be doing more and more SEO because I do SEO to promote all the e-commerce websites that the company I work for builds. So it will soon be a LOT of work if I don't choose some software and I have to buy my own.

    Alot of the tools listed provide the same function with some having additional bells and whistles, as long as you pick one of those as your foundation and supplement that with some scrapebox, AMR, and BMD you will be able to build massive amounts of 2.0s and then blast those with blog comments. Depending on how many sites you're working on you may be able to use trials to get an idea of the base program you want to use (it all comes down to preference, note that some of the tools above have more integration with ability to expand the tool's utility geared to people with a programming background - sick has this feature and so does venom I believe).

    As far as the difference between them, it is so variable an really depends on exactly how much seo you will be doing as well as your preferred method of IM.

    Good to know, thanks.

    Which two do you feel are the most solid of these then? Or to put the question in different words, which would you choose as your base?

    I hate to sound elusive but the programs are constantly changing. Se nuke is good in that it does a lot of various things, but it comes at a steep cost. I believe that venom is going to be updated with more site support soon too (one of the developers is a member here - greengoblin), and the price is less than that of se nuke x. As ahiddenman said, seo link robot has come a long way too (I wish I would have got in at the one-time price of 157).

    Most offer trials, I would see which you like for your marketing methods. But either way I would consider supplementing with something like scrapebox for building links to your links (and citations if you do local) and indexing, and BMD primarily for indexing.

    Question: If you had to to swap Senuke out for a less expensive tool, which one might you choose?

    Remember each of these tools have a learning curve and there's no sense in buying them all when you don't know how any work.

    Buy one and master it before you move on. If you had to pick only one to start I'd say AMR. And then as you're sitting there smiling at your huge pile of successfully posted articles in the thousands ... buy BMD or scrapebox to start getting backlinks to your backlinks.

    It's as straight forward as this.If you use scrapebox it's possible the clients site might get emails from pissed off blog owners,and some of these emails are pretty vile.Not an issue if you push your own site you can laugh and forget.However if your client gets death threats,we'll spread bad words about your site etc,they will be very shocked.

    If your client is aware of this no problem.I have clients who accept the odd email of abuse and some I would use mass comments on.
    Web 2.0 sites are very useful for sites whereby under no circumstances can the client be getting dodgy emails.
    Another solution is to only post one comment\trackback per domain.Yeah it's more work(well for scrapebox or no hands seo) but it's way safer.Is your client happy to have their site banned by akismet?

    AMR is (was,I haven't updated yet,heard it was buggy) good when used right and there is little chance of pissed of emails from the directories.

    SEO isn't a case of point and squirt,anyone can buy software and go crazy but remember used stupidly these tools can get your client in trouble,which in turn gets you in trouble.
    As I say I use different tactics for different clients.You can give a web 2 a decent scrapebox blast but again don't go crazy because they can pick up on it.

    Video is a good way to get links.

    No hands seo is working well for me and gives you the option to only post one comment per domain.I have scrapebox as well but not sure if it has the same option.

    I like senukex with it's simplicity and it is effective used right,but that applies to any tool not just senukex.

    Good luck with it anyway.

    Can AMR handle Web2's, blogs, and articles (press releases would be NICE as well) or will I need a beefier tool if I want to be able to do all of those?

    And if AMR cannot handle all of those, what tool would be able to handle all of those best for a cheaper price than Senuke? I need a tool that can make the quality blogs, web2, and articles that I aim directly at my money site.

    Mate just go for a BHS VPS where you have all these tools included. It surely would cut off your expenses. Cheers.

    If I can get one that's solid and not SUPER expensive I would. Could you recommend me two to look closer at and compare?

    Let me give you a little advice, take it if you'd like.

    If you don't already own most of these programs, you're not going to buy them, click "run" and have it build lots of links. Each of the programs has a learning curve and each one will need you to spend time running it.

    Just Scrapebox alone can have someone running it almost 12 hours a day if you're using it for it's full potential. You'll need at least a few days of regular use to be able to use SB at it's most basic levels.

    uBot studio is exactly the opposite. You'll need to spend at least a week before you'll come up with anything that will help.

    For now, I would enjoy your money and save it. Outsource everything to people who already have mastered the programs and find more clients. People are willing to run SEnukeX for web 2.0's for $40. That saves you $107 and at least a few hours of work.

    Learning curve is not an issue, I have a degree in the computer field. I can program and I've learned plenty of extremely non-user-friendly programs before.

    My main concern is selecting a solid base of software that I can begin learning so that I can expand seo for my company. This is for work, so I do not mind working to learn how to use it right... I just need advice on which tools I should consider for purchase given my small expanse budget.

    I need a tool that will grow with me as I get better and will NOT hold me back, as some of the simpler "click and forget" ones might. I want to be able to link up high quality articles that I spin on Blogs, Web2s, article sites, and press releases... then I will use Scrapebox and BMD to blast those.

    So I badly need advice on what tool can handle all of that (web2.0, blogs, articles, and press releases) and handle it well for a guy who intends to do large scale work in the future. Thx!
