    Hi there,
    I was thinking of starting up a MNS because it seems like a good way to make money. Thing is I dont have any of these expensive programs like SEnukeX and don't really want to invest in something like that unless I make that money first off of IM. So my question is: is manual backlinking and article writing even worth it these days with all the competition of the people who can afford all of this software that creates them links and spins them articles?

    I feel like the people with this software would be able to create 100 MNS with more links than me than I could with one site and lucky get 100 dollars a month.

    Anyways, is there a way to beat these people with this advantage? Will google be able to tell a 100 percent unique and well written article site from one coming from these programs?


    P.s (offtopic) but what is a traceback (under this form im writing in)

    THANKS :)

    I'm kind of stuck here. I'm a webmaster in my second year and first year doing mainstream. I launched my first two mainstream websites a couple months ago and right as I was getting to the linkbuilding part of it here comes Penguin and I honestly have no clue which mass link building strategies are still effective today? Yes, I know, emphasis on quality and diversity... but that is still very general and that still points us to paid services in many cases which is the exact thing Google is telling us to avoid. Now, let's say we go with manual linkbuilding? What are our options then? We can do it internally if we have a large network of blogs/sites on different IP's, etc, but what if we don't? Nobody is handing out links for free, so you are basically forced into trades or paid methods.

    Don't doubt it, manual building will ALWAYS be better than automated, because you have total control of everything you do.

    The problem is, obviously, that it's too time consuming. In fact, that's the reason why automated softwares like senukex were created.

    Of course it's worth it. Maybe start with a low-competition niche at first. And you can't automate every kind of link building, like posting on related high-pr blogs with moderation.

    If you are patient and willing to wait, but most people will normally use a little bit manual and mostly software to build links. you can try a low comp and buy some services on fiverr to get a feel for it.
