Well here's my situation right now. I'm looking to invest in some tools to help me with some backlinking campaigns. I have a limited amount of $$ to spend, but this is what I was thinking. First I'm pretty set on purchasing Scrapebox- seems to be a staple for comment blasts and scraping. I have no problem with the price tag on this one. I was going to try Sick Submitter since the $20/mo was affordable to me, but for some reason I can't get a working version of Microsoft .net 4 Framework, so the software won't run on my work computer. I've tried all sorts of fixes with no luck so at this point I'm writing it off unless someone has an idea. I know SeNuke and Magic Submitter are a bit too expensive for me. Is there something comparable or some combination of one time fee tools that can accomplish diverse submissions. I also have access to a hidemyass VPN. Will this be effective in using the mentioned software. Is it necessary if I'm building backlinks only for my own network of sites(30)? Any other tools or recommendations feel free to suggest, I'm trying to gather as much info as I can before I shell out my hard earned dough.
