    So I'm planning on making the leap to a more blackhat approach for some side projects (I mainly do whitehat seo).

    I want to start off by purchasing 3 tools. My budget is around $300 for now for this, so I thought of buying the following:

    1.) ScrapeBox
    2.) GSA SER
    3.) Captcha Sniper ( I believe this is a standalone program that can integrate with GSA SER? Please advise if I'm wrong.)

    Will the above be sufficient for me to start out with? To build a variety of links and automate it? Would you recommend I get other software instead?

    I know my way around and have good knowledge of SEO but not of the software for blackhat seo.

    Those are pretty good tools... GSA has it's own captcha tool as well if I am not mistaken.

    Thanks for responding BTB. Feel a bit better that you're saying those are good tools :)

    I'm pretty set on Scrapebox and GSA SER, however, not too sure on Captcha Sniper. I'm not too eager to pay for an ongoing captcha service as I have no clue what sort of ROI I will get and I have a spare $300 so I'd like to invest it in standalone tools that I can use for the next 5 years at least without paying a monthly fee.

    My question rather would be, are these a good starting point for a well rounded technical SEO that's completely new to blackhat link building?

    I haven't tried the GSA trial, however, I tried backlinkbeast and seemed pretty straight forward and I could see the value in it. Is GSA similar or better in a way?

    PS. You speak as if you don't use GSA? Do you use something else to spam links?

    I've played with GSA SER and I know it is a quality product but I have something that we developed that we use in house. It is not available a a commercial product as I am not a SaaS guy.

    Back when I messed around with GSA they had an add on for captcha that was not bad at all and, if I am remembering correctly, it is a one off and did a decent job.

    GSA is very good, Scrape Box is as well and both are very good for second tier and, is configured properly, can be used for tier 1 as well in some instances.

    You won't go wrong buying them if you are willing to learn how to make them work.

    Loopline has some very good instructional videos on YT for SB and I think I saw some he made for GSA but am not 100% on that.

    Great stuff :) Just spoke to a guy and he suggested GSA Captcha Breaker (I think this is what you are referring). It's also a standalone once-off software.

    Thank you for your response, appreciate!

    Cheers!

    I was actually on the fence a couple years about purchasing ScrapeBox and I recently bought it and I absolutely love it. I wish I got it sooner as it's totally worth the price and I find myself using it all the time. I haven't tried GSA though.

    Scraping and checking proxies.
    Grabbing URLs to use for GSA SER
    Check page rank and other stats to find good enough links to post too
    more...

    My personal experiance I would go with GSA captcha breaker. I have not used captcha sniper in a long time but unless they can solve re captcha I would just still stick with Captcha breaker.

    A good list is a great head start. However there is a function in GSA to scrape your own list. It does it much quicker than it posts (though not as quickly as a dedicated scraper tool like scrapebox) however, it sorts them into the site types (platforms) that it knows automatically which is an advantage. One of my servers runs GSA scraper almost constantly.

    Just plug in a few thousand seed keywords and off you go.
