    Hello BHW! I wanted to make this thread to see how people are making out ranking their sites after the recent google updates. For example, are you still having success with tools like AMR, SenukeX,Scrapebox,etc.......
    Also, are things like profile links still working? I would like some input from BHW members. I have noticed that backlinking results for me have not been as good with AMR,and Scrapebox. Also, profile links and some blasting killed my sites. What is still working out there? This will help many with some good input here! Thanks in advance to all who contribute.

    Yeah, those things are still making me money. Of course, it depends on what side of the coin you're on. During the gold rush a lot of people got rich, most of them were selling picks, pans and shovels.

    As for whether they bring rank...yes, you just have to apply them creatively. Poor spinning, blasting sites with high OBL's, link velocity, blah, blah, blah...man, you gotta TRY to get deindexed. G has people working day and night trying to develop better ways to detect patterns. Of course, it takes time...on the flip side, if you blast your same site and anchor text everywhere then your results are gonna be somewhat poor.

    Well buddy its all about creativity, the way you do it. I have seen many good results for my site no matter which panda comes in my way.
    I have seen most of serp boost with unique content in AMR which are properly spunned.

    Honestly, I don't know what works and what's not after the update. Income is down 50%.

    Well I am not going to give up! Thats not who I am, but I have taken a hit when it comes to my sites. I was doing okay, but not after the updates. I am just asking for some input to figure this out because I wanted to see what is still working for people.

    Home Page:
    As far as using spamming softwares that spam forums, blogs, article sites, bookmarking sites. I would stay away from those - had a bad experience myself - lot of spamming almost no results, or even negative results.

    Submitting backlinks to sites that everyone else spams the heck out will most likely not going to help, even if the site has a high PR rank.

    If it is not possible to generate a ton of unique content for your site DO NOT copy past someone else's content better have less content than copied content.

    My advise would be to generate as much as possible of unique content for you site, and place your backlinks on to sites that have high page rank domains lowest lets say PR3 and Alexa no more than 200k.

    It is also very important to do it consistently!

    I probably spend more time than I should on each project to ensure solid content. I don't know if this is why but my SERPs are generally good and less volatile than average

    That picture really describes how I feel about the recent Panda updates. Seriously.
    Initially when Caffeine was rolled out and everyone was panicking about it, I was actually laughing as I wasn't affected by it.

    Then Panda 1.0 was rolled out... again, I wasn't affected.
    Then 2.0 came. Fortunately, still wasn't affected but I did notice a drop in profits (20-30%).

    Then when the October Panda Update was rolled out, HOLY FUCK! My profit dropped nearly 50-60%. Although some of my sites are slowly climbing back up, my profits hasn't.

    Makes me wonder why... And yes, I everyday do that picture above as I wonder what's the solution to Panda.
