    I would have to say that the 3 months or so that I have been here I have learned more then 6 years of college. Random I know, but I was just thinking of how my SEO skills have drastically taken off and I am building thousands of links from a day from Senukex, SB, AMR, zennoposter, Venom SEO, BMD, and I am so unorganized. 3 months ago I didn't even know what black hat was lol.

    I have yet to find a great process for organizing links. Do you get rid of the links after you blast them with SB, do you save them and blast with SB again and again? I am building more links then I can try and index. Sorry if my post is random. Working all day everyday can get to your brain :)

    Tips guys?

    I'm pretty much where you said you were a few months ago, just finding out what a backlink is. Lol.

    I use a tool that I built off a database engine..looks something like this:

    [​IMG]

    Basically I build out a link run, export my list of new links and then dump it into my database program. From there I can get an idea of how much backlinking effort i'm doing for each of my sites (and I have a ton). In the last thread, I mentioned that i'd be making this program available as I think it's very much needed, but i'm really trying to optimize the link ingestion time into the database. It's not a very fast/quick db so right now importing a link list of say 5k backlinks is taking roughly 12 minutes.

    It does a lot more than just act as a link dump, but i'm still working on it. Since it's built off other code, i'm kinda limited to how much i can do with it, but it's still invaluable from a project management perspective.

    I save them in a folder so I have a folder dedicated to posted and another dedicated to failed entries, I run the failed entries again and then run everything through link checker at a later date.

    yes I've created about 30k links to one of my blogs in the past week. I don't ping them so they drip feed to SE's as they are crawled

    Blackhat is cool, don't get me wrong, but don't forget what you've learned in college man. Don't just go mindless blasting shit, a good blackhat blasts and ranks pages with technical factors. A great blackhat does the same thing, but keeps his mind open to the creative thinking skills they've acquired through life/schooling.

    True, you do learn things that make you an all around smarter person. If one thing that college taught me, is that I learn better by doing and not having a teacher tell me :) That is where learning SEO and blackhatting has come natural to me and also thanks to BHW!!

    As of now, I just put all my links for the day in linklicous which I have yet to really see its effectiveness, then I put those links in SB and then delete them. I find it much easier to just build more links then to worry about whether those links are getting indexed. Anyone agree?

    I'd somewhat disagree with that because:

    * It's a better bang for your buck if you get a higher proportion of your links indexed, especially if you're paying for captchas at least some of the time.
    * You're less likely to get spam complaints if you post less links but get more of them indexed.
    * Possibly large numbers of links that get spidered but don't get indexed (because G doesn't think they're worthy enough) could be a spam signal.
    * You'll inevitably find some juicy sources that aren't being hit by many other spammers, and you want ot maximize your return from those non-spammed out sources by making sure your links get indexed.

    Easiest way to get backlinks indexed that I know of is just backlinking your backlinks with whatever totally shitty links you can come up with, which is one of the main advantages of the tiered systems that are so popular these days IMHO. I'm not a huge fan of pinging myself because it's pretty spammy really and I suspect that your backlinks have a better chance of getting and staying indexed if Gbot finds them naturally. I get very high proportions of backlinks indexed by spending some of my backlinking power on backlinking my backlinks in a random and somewhat circular manner.

    I record all my links in mysql database that I sometimes bother to look at, although mainly it's there for the purpose of creating backlinks to my existing backlinks to get aforementioned high rate of indexation. I use all my own software which makes it easier because I'm not trying to manage exported lists in different formats from different programs - I can just write it all straight to the database.

    But if what you're doing is working for you then keep on doing more of it!

    I don't really keep a track of whats links I've built. I'm too busy building links and marketing my site. I don't really see a need to, with the way I work.

    And as for trying to get automated links indexed, I work on the theory that pretty much everything that SB posts too is full of spam, therefore someone else will be trying to get their link which is sitting above/below mine indexed. This thread proves that theory.
