    Hey guys,
    Is it possible to do offsite seo just purely with software? I'm planning on purchasing GSA for that so I won't have to do it manually.

    Thanks

    Will suggest you to know more about this softwarae before purchasing it. As i dont think so that you can fully perform off site SEO from such tools.

    I think it's better to do it manually first, then use software. This way you're not as likely to have your site de-indexed because you'll have a better understanding of what the software does.

    I'd say Obviously, use software where it makes since and manual where it makes sense. GSA is a good tool, but not the only thing you need to do to rank.

    Automated software is great, and GSA is a fine example of something that is in most of our toolboxes. However, I think that it is much better to start out doing some manual SEO work and get a feel for what goes on behind the scenes before using software solutions. You need to crawl before you run.

    You need high quality backlinks means just try manually..If you use software mean its collect spammy sites and submit your URL so better you submit your link manually.

    GSA is good for newbies since it is fairly easy to use. The problem is that GSA is just a tool - if you don't know how to use it you will have very little benefit from it. Start out manually by making Wbe 2.0 properties instead, you can never go wrong with these.

    There is no software for manual SEO because if you use a software as a strategy in SEO it means you are using an automated techniques. I've been using Article Marketing Robot for article submission, Wikibot for wiki submission and SB bomber for social bookmarking. I can say that these tools are very effective to increase traffic and backlinks.

    Food for thought: Would you use a car or walk to get to a destination?

    If you use a car, there's a slight % chance that you might kill human being but you get there 100x faster.

    If you walk, you, there's 0% chance that you will kill another human being but its super slow.

    Same rule applies to software, it gets the job done faster but the % chance of getting penalized is there. Learn how to use the software 1st.

    For those who goes "Use Manual!" or "Only Manual is the way" etc.. /facepalm
