    I am not very knowledgeable in computer speak. I know some basics but thats about it. I usually hire people to do my link building because iinkbuilding sucks if you don't know how to use the right programs. Realistically how long does it take to get GOOD with;

    Senuke x
    scrapebox
    x rummer

    Also is there anything else that I would need? Is it even worthwile trying to learn these programs? I look at alot of these threads and they are way over my head. Also I understand if you don't know what you are doing with these programs you can fuck a site up bad. I am jealous of all you guys that know how to use these because they look super powerfull if you know what you are doing!

    Senuke x - 1 day
    scrapebox - maybe 1 week
    x rummer - never used by myself, but they say it takes a lot of time

    Understanding SEO, and knowing what to do in order to rank a site well is more important than knowing how to use those programs. To answer your question directly, Xrumer will take a long time to learn if you are new to html + SEO work. The above poster has estimates for snuke and scrapebox.

    Never used xrumer. Used senuke and own SB. I'd say IMHO that scrabebox is easier than senuke. Maybe I have not "mastered" it yet...and senuke is more user-friendly perhaps, but there is so much going on with senuke...

    Scrapebox will take that much longer to learn than senuke x? I thought it would be the other way around...

    Xrumer will be the hardest. Most people give up before they even learn how to use it properly.

    SENukeX can be difficult to setup, but after you get it its rather easy.

    Scrapebox can "seem" easy, but often people never really know how to utilize its power properly. They'll only use one or two of the literally hundreds of different functions.

    The key is to read and learn. Before you get any of the programs above, you need to learn how SEO works and how to manually link build. Once you have a grasp of the process, then automate the process.

    If you have the above skills, Senuke will only take you a few days to get good at. I watched all the videos and tuts before I started. It is extremely easy to run and understand.

    Scrape box is more complex than Senuke to learn only because it can do so many things. I think it is extremely underpriced for all of its functions. For basic blog blasting, you can get that up and going within hours of your purchase. For more complex scraping you will need to put some time in and understand what to look for.

    Instead of starting out with Xrumer, I would start with VenomSEO. That way if you dislike making your own profiles, you are only out the trial period / monthly due. The Xrumer trial isn't good. It only allows some guest book posting, and no profile blasts. Which is weird, because most users want to blast profiles or start out blasting profiles and then move to posting.

    SEO learning is an ongoing process.

    depends on how much time you are willing to put in. there is plenty of guides out there for all three so just look in the right places and you will find the information you need. i would also suggest getting Article Marketing Robot and The Best Spinner and possibly something like Bookmarking Demon. Also because xrummer is a pretty difficult program you might want to consider Scrapeboard when it gets released. hope this helps :)

    This ^^

    If you know how SEO works than you will play with these softwares for a few hours and immediately see some ways you can use them in your efforts. To master them it may take some time, even for pros. But you dont have to master something to make money at it;-)
