    I'm looking to buy GSA SER because I plan to make websites, rank them, then sell them for bigger profits.
    I'm going to be outsourcing everything except website creation.

    Need opinions on if:

    1) I should buy GSA Search Engine Ranker and outsource the linkbuilding that it can't do.

    or

    2) Outsource everything using the money I made from selling websites.

    I'm leaning towards #1 because it seems like the cheaper alternative to the long run, but not so sure if GSA will provide safe results.
    I also have Scrapebox, so if anyone could tell me if SB + GSASER would make a good backlinking combo.

    Thanks and rep will be given appropriately. :)

    GSA has been giving awesome results. So I would advise you to get GSA and a Windows VPS and pretty much automate everything.

    But look you can never beat manual link building and white hat seo strategies. It all depends on how you plan out.

    Not to hijack the thread. But ugjunk, do you buffer your GSA links on other sites before your money site? Or directly @ the moneysite?

    No single SEO tool is a one stop ranking machine.

    Figure out how to rank sites manually first, then you can scale up by getting the tools to automate and/or outsource.

    GSA SER is Ok, but does have a learning curve and needs setting up. The best type of automation tools are fully customizable like Zenno, but require more work.


    You can do it both ways*:
    - You can link direct to money site, by avoiding spammy platforms like Guestbooks, and filtering the links to avoid any kind of footprint.
    - Use it for second tier links. Other tools can do a similar job, e.g. Scrapejet or NHSEO.

    * If you're a new user, test it out on a dummy site first.

    I find the guestbook links to be garbage. Are there any other link categories you would stay away from in GSA?

    I can't afford a Windows VPS, is it okay if I run it on my computer?
    And for the manual link building, how do we do that? Just blog comment on Wordpress posts similar to my niche and link to money site or what?

    Again, can you show me how to build links manually? And is it safe if I learn how to do these manual link building strategies on my microniche site? I want to rank this website then sell it, but don't want to mess up with bad links..

    As for the customizability of Zenno, would you recommend people to purchase Zennoposter Lite? I only have that much money so...

    I always start with manual link building first until I see a trickle in of search engine traffic for my keywords, then I might slow go for tier 1 links on high quality sites over the period of 30 days. Then I'll take those sites and build a diverse profile on tier2 over the next 30 days. and then I'll blast all the tier2 and some tier1 with scrapebox. I *never* ping sites. I just let google find 'em -- that way they just trickle in over the course of a year and more.

    Combine manual link building and GSA. GSA is one time payment so eventually it will pay for itself. Manual links always have a better effect but they require a lot more time and effort ;) Try to do manual links by yourself at the beginning, it's almost free ;)

    I've had excellent results with GSA. Use it wisely and it works wonders!

    Hmm, sounds good. Is there a problem with doing tier 1 links too much? And does that 60 day thing you're doing work?

    Will you lead me to some manual link building techniques? How to do them? I'll take a look at the White Hat SEO section but it would be nice if you could show me some of the methods you do.

    Great, since you have GSA do you mind letting me know what kind of links it produces?

    Again, thanks for the replies guys. Keep 'em coming!

    Hi toughtrasher, as tier 1 build web 2.0's blogs like wordpress, blogspot, livejournal etc with unique content, not spun. Make like 10-20 blogs from different platforms (again. all unique content), check wich ones got indexed (wait like a week for some of them to be indexed) and then start blasting them with scrapebox and social bookmarks. As tier 1 I also recommend social signs, like facebook likes and twitter retweets.

    Don't do all social signs at one go, drip feed them. Web 2.0's are good to go in 1 time.

    Don't forget about keyword variations, example: if you're trying to rank something like "unlock iphone" and wanna create 10 web 2.0's blogs, create 5 of them with "unlock iphone" keyword, 3 with click here/know more here/check this link and 2 with the site URL. Should be fine this way.

    Hope it helps.

    Best Regards,
    John

    I forgot to say that as tier 1 you can build MANUAL High PR blog comments on unspammed sites. To raise the % of approved comments don't place your keyword on "name field", just put a random name like Paul or John. You can always try to put keyword in the "name field" but the % of the comment being approved is much lower.

    Thanks for the manual link building suggestions, but I'm outsourcing my article writing since I have no knowledge of my niche to save my life lol.
    So, wouldn't outsourcing the unique content to go to the platforms be extremely expensive? Or can I buy one unique article and use it to post on the web 2.0s?
    Can GSA SE Ranker post to Web 2.0s?

    Best is to use unique content on web 2.0's and not spun. Depending on the competition of the keyword, you can narrow it to 5 web 2.0's for example and blast them so they get stronger.

    I'm not sure if GSA SE Ranker can post to web 2.0's.

    Well, the unique content for my Web 2.0s would cost $25 for each 5 of them.
    Is it okay if I can use the same unique content over 10 different web 2.0s?
    What links do I blast the web 2.0s with?

    Bump, need a bit more opinions and help.

    Also, I'm wanting to buy ZennoPoster Lite since it's pretty much the same price as GSA SER.
    I can only buy one tool for now though.. Any recommendations?
