    I'm just getting into the SEO part of IM and I'm very confused with the right way to go about doing things. I've had success with SENuke just spamming to all hell. My sites were sandboxed by google, but not yahoo or bing. My question is, am I better off buying GSA and using that to rank on Google? Or just simply use this service and have it done for me??? I know GSA can give me infinite backlinks with my own articles that I'd have to write, and I'd never have to pay it again, but seeing as I don't have any proper skills and tactics on ranking using an automated program on Google, I feel like the service would be better... What should I do?

    GSA is good, but don't use it too much if you don't know how to use it.
    One of my site ranks well by just GSA, in insurance niche. While I got also sites that are penalized after using only GSA.
    The key is to research. But from I know, don't blast GSA directly to your money site, Tier 2 is good for GSA.

    Having a tool, especially paying for one is pointless if you don't know how to use it. Tools are supposed to automate tasks, not do them for you because you're ignorant.

    I would recommend paying someone to do it for you until you've learned enough to do it on your own. You can learn all you need to know here on BHW. Nothing beats trying stuff out for yourself.

    If you have the money then it's an easy decision: Outsource!

    You don't want to be sitting around writing spun articles and GSA, pay someone else whos an expert do it.

    The key is to find a seller with great feedback from long term customers, not people who ordered the service 1 day ago.

    I'm worried about trying stuff out for myself because I don't want the sites I've invested money and time into to get de-indexed due to my ignorance. I guess I'll just read and watch more tutorials.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction with a link to good GSA tuts or a link here with strategies, that'd be great.

    My other question would be, do you guys think that 10 backlinks from PR+4 will rank me well for a low-med. competition keyword? Not even, like people who are trying to beat me, just incidental outranking. XD

    Also check out what they're doing on that sales thread. Couldn't you do that?

    You're mainly paying for the PR of the website they post the article on, not the service of actually doing it. Think about it, would you pay $90 for 10 300 word articles, 1 comment, and 5 social shares? No sir. I bet you could knock that out in an hour.

    Is 90$ worth the PR ranks of the websites they post the links on? Or do you think I could get a better deal elsewhere?

    What's your definition of paid SEO because I can't see anything other than buying tools for crappy backlinks..

    Personally I would vote no. Unless you're really trying to rank in Google and push your site up the SERPS no point in buying them. I've gotten high PR links just from using GSA. Create some solid tier 1's and maybe get some $5 tiered linking packages (SEO Gladius) and see what that does for you. I wouldn't go shelling out serious money on link building until I felt solid about the provider or my abilities with a tool.

    On a side note: The search button is your friend.
