    Hello fellows! First of all I'd like to say thank you to every person who reads this thread, and the entire BHW community in general. It has been quite some time since I've felt so excited, so eager to learn about anything. I feel like IM'ing is a gateway to a whole new world, a door of endless opportunity, and I'd like to personally thank you all from the bottom of my heart! What a great community!

    Now, to business. I hope some of you will be able to provide me with some insight onto a few things I am unsure about. Please dont tell me to use the search button, as I have done so, and would really like some one-on-one with you guys. So I will place my questions in a numbered list, and Id really appreciate if you would be able to number your answer corresponding to each question, for organizational purposes.

    1. I have been looking into purchasing a licensed VPS server and BHS VPS seems like a good bet. Would I be able to log into a VPS server from any computer? Would I be able to leave the server working (creating backlinks) while my computer is off? Since the list of available software is huge on the BHS VPS, which software should I begin learning first? Xrumer and SeNuke seem like the best bets.

    2. I have been looking into the GSA softwares (SER and Captcha), and they work well together, BUT I have been unable to generate good content for Teir 1 backlinks. I understand that for optimal results, one must do it manually, but I do NOT want to put the time into that, as Im sure you all know, time is money. So, would entering one hand-written article into GSA do the trick?

    3. How do you 'point' one tier to another? For example, after I create a first tier of a high quality, how would I be able to use GSA to point my second tier to the first one? Would I need to save a list of my verified submitted sites, and point the second tier to the saved list of backlinks from the first tier?

    4. What are the essential softwares for any SEO beginner? As you already may have guessed, I am currently using the GSA softwares, but I have commonly encountered scrapebox, senuke among others frequently mentioned in this community. Which, in your opinions are the most powerful softwares used in SEO nowadays?

    Please provide me with any information/resources/feedback that you may find beneficial. Thank you once again for taking your precious time to read and answer my post, I appreciate your time and effort highly!

    1. Yes, you'll be able to log into the VPS from any computer, or even smart phone if you get a remote desktop app. Yes, you'll be able to leave the server online, running applications, 24/7 (providing the don't experience much downtime). That's one of the pros of using a VPS over your home computer. I'd probably recommend SeNuke over Xrumer for a beginner.

    2. Nowadays I personally wouldn't rely on any automated software for tier 1 links. I'm not saying that they don't work, but I don't want to compromise my client's reputation by spamming their links, and also, I like to maintain a very natural link profile and am a believer that using automated software for tier 1 links will not provide long-lasting results. Regardless of whether you use 100% hand-written, high quality articles and spend a lot of time configuring the software, the fact is, Google are so familiar with all the sites that these tools submit to, when a large number of your links come from these sources, it's a red flag for them.

    3. Yes, you'd do exactly that. Export any verified links into a list and import them into another tool, or use them as a reference.

    4. Scrapebox is a great tool for scraping and manipulating data. I haven't actually used it for blog commenting in about 3 years, and nor would I advise it. However it is a tool that I frequently use for finding sites, scraping data, analysing links etc. Senuke is okay, and if you're super careful with it, you can probably get away with using it for tier 1 links. I'm not really much of a fan of any automated tools anymore so can't advise you much more on that topic.

    Abstroose, thank you for your detailed response. I would like to follow up on question two; I've read several times that blog 2.0 posts, article directories and such sites are the best for tier 1 links since they have a high PR and are trusted by Google. Would you be able recommend any such sites to me, perhaps some that you use yourself? I find that the quickest way to learn is by emulating those who know what they are doing. Furthermore, how many tier one links in TOTAL would one need to maintain a good visibility on Google, or would one need to constantly grow their teir one links every day?

    Would original content be necessary for every individual post/comment, or would spinning one unique article and ensuring that it is legible suffice? Also, in your best experience, how important is it to stream new content to your webpage daily? Is doing so more important than backlinking?

    Ad 4.

    Scrapebox is similar to a swiss knife. Many people forget that it's not only about comment posting. It's a great scraper. For example lately I found an interesting platform to post comments. I had a few thousands of domains and I used scrapebox to scrape all inner pages from that domains.

    Senuke is a bit pricey however it still works. A few months ago I done a few tests. I used only senuke. Repeated the test a few times on a few sites in really low competition niches. One Senuke blast (for test purposes I used nonsense spun like there is no tomorrow content LOL) was able to improve ranking - sites went a few spots up.

    Ad 3.

    Yes correctly. However remember about one thing. Links from tier 1 can't disappear. Rapid loss of links is very dangerous to site ranking. That's why people put so much attention to Tier 1 quality. The link loss factor is not so important in next tiers. That's why people spam with everything they have on Tier 4 ;)

    Ad 2.

    This tactic is called content syndication (after all it's natural that some sites quote other sites). Many people say that some part of your links can come from these kind of pages. To be honest I don't use this tactic but I would advise to test it.

    No, backlinks are more important. I'm currently running an experiment. I have a super white hat website. No link building. I post nearly every day great interesting articles, unique content, many pictures, videos and I even remember about text formatting (bulleted lists, headings, text decoration etc). And guess what the site is floating between 12-14 spot in search engine results and can't even reach top 10

    On the other hand I have around 10 websites with really spammy computer-spun content. I mean total blackhat spam. The content is absolute nonsense. And you know what? Those pages are in top 10 because I created powerful backlinks.

    If someone from Google Webspam team will find those sites I'm sure they'll throw them in hell and deindex LOL ;)

    However to be honest despite this what I said above I really recommend to have great content on your website. Users love content. If they'll see unreadable spun content on your website they'll close it and go to another website.

    For your website I suggest to use only high quality content

    For tier 1 you can use high quality spun content (readable, and spun on many levels)

    For tier 2+ content quality is not so important.

    But the above advice is Black Hat style. To be White Hat you can't use spun content even in your links. But even being white hat won't guarantee that your site will survive next Google Update.
