For the time being I'm planning on using Licorne as my main software. The only thing I'm focusing on right now is my authority blog. This is my first time using software of this nature. I decided that picking it up at a discount for $90 through Matthew Woodward's site was a good move. No software is the end all, I realize that, but Licorne - what can I say - I don't think it was a wasted investment and I'm excited to see the features grow over time. Regardless of the replies I get here, I'm still going to pick up Scrapebox as well. One of the many features Scrapebox has that really interests me is the Mass backlink checker. Can Licorne do this? My impression is that both softwares together make for a great combination and a decent place to start in terms of building my arsenal. Do you guys think I'm good to go for now? (and I'm not interested in comparing Licorne to Senuke, UD, GSA, Xrumer, etc. since I did enough reading on that beforehand) What other weapons should I consider? For example, why would I need an external spinner like The Best Spinner for instance? Stuff like that I'm unclear on. And once I start mastering this stuff - which shouldn't take me forever - what can I do with software like this to give back to the forum? Because I really should be doing that! And I will.
