Does $500 in tools to get started with tiered link building sound right?

    I want to build my own 3-tier links to rank no/low competition sites.

    For all the basic tools it seems to cost around $500? (Before making any profit)
    Am I missing something from my shopping list? (to make ROI)

    ScrapeBox - $70
    GSA ser - $80
    GSA captcha breaker - $120
    Best Spinner $47
    GSA Content Generator - $160

    Proxies, hosting, VPS, Death by captcha - $100/month

    Is it a bad idea to buy this much stuff if I am still a noob? I am currently making $10 a month off sites I've ranked by buying links. I know blackhat seo is what I want to do with my life, so I'm trying to take the next step.

    Thanks!

    Ah okay! Thank you. It looks like Gsa indexer is $20, forgot about that.

    I was thinking I would do the web 2.0s manually. However T2 and T3 seem impossible to do manually ? So i need these tools

    That sounds about right, yes if you want to go that path.

    I hope you don't fall in the same trap like I did a couple months before. It doesn't matter the price spent on tools, you can spend $5000 and it means shit. Your skill is what matters, and this skill needs to be honed. So it may take a while before you see good results. What I did was that I would have been buying a tool, get excited about using it, maybe read here and there about it, and that's it. I still haven't used Scrapebox for example in any practical environment.

    The opposite of excitement would be that I'd start to doubt about myself, like if I can do this shit, anybody can do it, and hence it would cripple me from taking action.

    So try to understand how links work, look at a GSA link, smell it, feel it, try to build some manually, idk stuff like that, to understand the process behind. Try to dispel the excitement, and see if you still want to buy the bundle.

    You can save a fair bit from this depending what you are doing.

    • No real need for scrapebox at this level, a premium list would probably be better.
    • You can save 15% on the cost of SER using my 15% off coupon code here in my digital toolkit post.
    • You can save 15% on the cost of CB using my 15% off coupon code here in my digital toolkit post.
    • I see no real need for the best spinner unless you are doing stuff with large number of web 2.0s or something.
    • You can save 15% on the cost of CG using my 15% off coupon code here in my digital toolkit post.
    • While you are starting out you can use free public proxies to post, I get a rig upto 607 LPM in this case study.
    • While you are starting out you could use a laptop or desktop but performance would such rather than a VPS or use my 10% off coupon code here for VPS' and Servers.
    • Don't waste your time with death by captcha, in my opinion they have fallen from grace and 2Captcha have taken over but theres no need for manual captcha solvers with SER.
    You could look into a web 2.0 automator or some manual web 2.0s, if you go the manual web 2.0 route you can save 10% with the coupon code here.

    Before you go ahead I would just like to make you aware of this thread over on the GSA forum. Its the most recent thread about the tools performance taking a hit. Although I have managed to get a fair few pages to start climbing the SERPs in my journey thread, it is a fair bit harder than it was last year so be aware you could be throwing your money away but if you dont try you dont win I guess. If you do choose to go ahead with tiered link building and SER I highly recommend you read my tutorials on the tool here and my case studies here.

    Cool thanks! so maybe a small PBN would have a better ROI.

    But both methods seem worth trying for sure. I know the link packages i bought use gsa ser tiered links and those pushed my site up a ton.

    Well after alot of reading i've decided to start buying up all the parts over the next view days
    1.Tried making tier 2 by hand and it took too long
    2. Will help me add diversity and still be a useful tool once I have more money for PBNs
    3. Seems people still use it to rank #1 in some niches see response in this thread by "I Know SEO" https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/is-spam-tier2-3-still-working-2017.953188/
    4. Only way to solve entire GSA SER mystery is to test
    :D

    As a newbie, you don't really need tools. Start manually and start seeing some positive results first before thinking about automation.

    Yea its a total waste of time and resources IMO. Can't expect much from a one time fee indexer though.

    Instead of indexer, just get some quality links with HQ content.

    Do you mean as a T2 or T3 to index the upper tiers?
