    Everyone's been talking about these three competitors, many people comment only using one of the three. I have used all three and have properly tested them to at least give each program a fair chance.

    In detail my experiment:

    1. All programs run on private proxies
    2. All programs run for 24 hours
    3. Home computer - 100mbs internet
    4. Two office computers - 50mbs
    5. Same keywords
    (I honestly don't think the 50mbs additional will make any drastic changes to output of programs, and i'll explain why later).

    Review of GSA:

    The PROS:

    1. Multiple platform support.
    2. Captcha Sniper Support
    3. VERY diversified URLS / Domains
    4. Multi-threaded
    5. Updates almost every day (or so I have seen)
    6. A very good high percentage of links were indexed.
    7. "Do Follow / no follow" notes on verified links.

    CONS:

    1. Still buggy - directory almost gets no posts
    2. Forum platforms work, but need manual captcha inputs, basically useless- Don't feel justified to use my DBC account (I'll rethink this while messing around with settings)
    3. Setup is convoluted and not well planned. Anchor texts should be customizable for each platform and not centrally placed
    4. Logs are almost nearly impossible to understand wth it's doing. Would be nice if logs were seperated- I did this by separating ONE project into individual projects (aka each project was one platform).
    5. No real description of how their search algo works...

    Result of Test
    1400 links posted - 800 or so confirmed with a breakdown of (70% Guestbook 20% Blogs 10% forums)

    Scrapejet

    PROS:

    1. Simple and easy to setup
    2. Captcha Sniper Support
    3. Definitions allow the program to be trained to other blogs
    4. Multi-threaded

    CONS:

    1. Thread maximum of 60? Don't understand why
    2. Maximum keywords is 3? Don't understand why
    3. Scraping goes through each platform seperately (you will notice the platform 1/6 in the bottom status bar) should be randomized on which platform.
    4. No Pinging/indexing mechanism
    5. Scrapeboard leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
    6. Start and Stop mechanism, I consider a stupid software design.

    Results:
    About 2200 submitted 1000 or so confirmed.

    No Hands SEO

    PROS:

    1. Very easy to use
    2. Multi-threaded
    3. Captcha Sniper Support
    4. I like the ability to choose how many threads are searching vs posting - worthy idea and prevents proxie overusage

    Cons:

    1. Doesn't allow training for multiple platforms.
    2. Fair amount of comments, but little verified
    3. Maximum 150 thread count (again, I don't agree with software developers putting a limit- these programs should be developed on an architecture to utilize the server/computer its being used on)

    Results:
    50000+ comments?? about 1700 verified.

    CONCLUSION

    No verdict. WHAT? WHY?


    Well because they are all good programs, so long as they continually listen to customers demands each and every program will be developed into a better product.

    BUT I will rank them on DIFFICULTY OF USE (Least to Most):

    1. ScrapeJet
    2. NHSEO
    3. GSA

    Price (highest to lowest)

    1. GSA
    2. NHSEO
    3. Scrapejet

    Updates since I purchased?


    1. GSA (3 in the last two days)
    2. Scrapejet/NHSEO

    Responses from Developer?


    1. GSA - Seems to be very good, no one has complains
    2. Scrapejet - Again, I don't like how this guy shy's away from Scrapeboard - Communicate to your customers properly of why it failed - its basic crisis management communication, please have onus to deal with the one's who purchased.
    3. NHSEO - Seems to be very good

    LIC PER PURCHASE


    (2)Two across the board, though I haven't confirmed GSA if it can be more than two.

    How about this... If you could only keep one which one would it be? I've only used NHSEO but I've been looking really hard at GSA. I don't have any big problems with NHSEO, it just doesn't bring me the results. Like you said.... 50000 comments for 1700 verified is crazy. I stopped using it completely. You're better off doing a sb blast. I am interested in GSA though. Just don't want to be stuck with another piece of software that I won't use.

    How are you using NHSEO?

    With private or public proxies?

    Private proxies increase the production of NHSEO by quite a bit (I did some random tests just to see).

    You also should ask yourself how much you want to spend, as they are all different price points :)

    I've used private and public. I only care about results. Price doesn't matter much but I do like to get my money's worth.

    @LazySeoEr:

    There are some things not right in your "Pros" description of ScrapeJet.

    Maximum keywords is 3? Don't understand why
    Thats not the case. You can load a text file with as many keywords as you like. The limit of 3 is only when you type them in the edit box. Same apply for the url list.

    No Pinging/indexing mechanism
    It has an indexer integrated, which can be enabled when you edit the profile.

    It's actually GSA Search Engine Ranker.

    The indexer is an add-on feature to help get your links from Search Engine Ranker indexed even faster.

    I have used NHSEO and GSA, in my book GSA wins hands down and when I do find a bug there is an update within hours it seems.

    I purchased my license about 2 weeks ago, since then, there have been over 35 updates done to it.

    It hasn't been around as long as the other two but it's already a main competitor and so I think in the long run it will be the winner based on how fast they are updating and improving it.

    I own Captcha Sniper and with GSA Search Engine Ranker the two are a match made in heaven and so I don't even bother with using my DBC account since I'm still getting thousands of links.

    Yeah... sounds like a winner. Do you use it directly on your money site or for your tiers?

    It must have a ton of bugs when they need to release 2.5 updates per day for 2 weeks in a row...

    Not really, Sven is usually adding new features.

    Keep in mind the program is just starting to build a name for it self and as more seasoned professionals purchase it they are going to be asking for certain features and so that's why I chose GSA over the rest. They have implemented every feature I have asked for and they did it within days not weeks or months. So at this point the program does everything I need and more.

    Wow, man, I really don't like you. Just because you work on scrapejet doesn't mean you should $hit on any other software, I wanted to buy scrapejet myself but it gets really repulsive and makes me think your software is not worth it when you do this kind of stuff as a developer (your software should speak for itself why it is better than competitors, not you).

    I have only used ScrapeJet but I do agree with the comments about it. Here are some additional thoughts.

    They seem to continue to upgrade it frequently just like Scrape Box, so new utility or at least enhanced operations are possible on an ongoing basis.

    I've only had the application for 2 weeks and they've already added new definitions, 2 plug-ins for posting to your own blogs, and a new feature that shares links between profiles.

    That does raise a new issue, however. There is no explanation or documentation on how that new feature works? Does it grab links from all old jobs, or only from jobs currently running?

    Overall they need to improve documentation as there is a lot of hidden utility like mysterious right click menus that are undocumented.

    Besides the issue with 1 definition at a time there should be a way to adjust the volume of keywords checked. The keyword results are way too broad. I would much rather have 1,000 relevant links than 10,000 irrelevant ones. In lieu of this feature or maybe even better, the posts should start with the most relevant keywords and then work towards more broad terms. I doubt this would be hard to do.

    Just my two cents.

    It was more like a joke, but never mind, some people dont get it.
    You dont need to like me, we are not married.
    Fine if you don't buy ScrapeJet, its your decision.
