    What would you guys suggest for building quality backlinks for ranking niche sites. Scrapebox, GSA, or some other software. Lets say budget is really not a problem , keeping it under lets say , 300$.

    Go for the GSA.

    Scrapebox is nothing in front of the GSA. GSA is improving on daily basis.

    I haven't had the privilege of trying SB, but I can definitely vouch for GSA :). Together with my huge "bad words" filter, I've been able to get some pretty good links... Off the top of my head, at least 80% of links I submitted last month are still sticking.

    I wish SB offered some sort of trial, then I could give you a fairer "review". GSA @ $99 and SB @ approx $57, you can definitely afford both by your $300 budget, you could always buy them both, and if you don't like one just sell the license. Buy some decent Elite proxies, some captcha credits, and you'll be all set :).

    Really not a fair comparison here IMHO. Scrapebox - no matter how you look at it - is the best harvesting solution there is period. Link building is just one of the facilities it happens to provide. Bottom line, if you can afford to, purchase both.

    thanks a lot fellas.. GSA it is. Anyone suggest a good guide for GSA other than the information you can find browsing this forum?

    Oh and besides GSA , I would need to purchase a article spinner. Thoughts on Wicked Article Creator? How many proxies would you guys suggest obtaining? And how about those annoying CAPTCHAS, what service/program works best with GSA for link building purposes? Also, on top of the spinner, proxies , and captcha solving, is there any additional software/services/misc items needed for successful link building?

    Everyone in the IM scene should have a standalone article spinner, so get one. Ten private proxies is fine to start with small sites/projects and when using on your computer at home. If you get a VPS, you will need many proxies to effectively utilize those resources. Death by Captcha is my preferred captcha cracking solution. Good luck.

    Scrapebox is best for harvesting + Posting comments.
    GSA is all in one solution almost as far i see according to them (I don't have it)

    For both you must need two things:
    Private proxies for posting + public ones for harvest :)

    Yea I heard its all in one too but I just figured the spinning/captcha aspects of it were sub-par.

    I thought that was just penalizing the extra juice people got from EMDs, although I am leaning towards more of an authority type site now anyway. Backlinks are needed just the same tho, correct? And I read with GSA you can filter out and only get links with a minimum page rank, thus controlling the quality of links? Please correct me if Im wrong fellas.


    Once again- Much thanks!

    Just to let you know ...SB is very powerfull if you know how to use it but its not on autopilot all the way ....and to be honest im not really sure you can rank #1 with SB alone ..

    Havent used GSA myself yet ( just tested it for free ) but after all the comments ive read so far i think its your best bet for now.

    Hope this helps ....and good luck to ya :)

    Get both, one at a time. Master that so that you know it better than SweetFunny or Sven, then move on to the other. Those two tools alone could be lethal in the right hands.

    I like ScrapeBox's diversity. SB is great for me because I do semi-auto and not full automation.

    Watch ScrapeBox videos, and then maybe try out a free trial of GSA. If nothing else, it would help you decide.

    Like mentioned above, use the services of SweetFunny and Sven, So instead of you using SER to scrape for links, leave that to SB and prune url's and then simply import them to GSA to post on and there is many other things you can do with the tamdem,try to be creative.

    its a great experience and an opportunity for me to use these 2 extremely powerful tools. I can say that both of these tools are unique not just on their interface but also on their purpose. I suggest get both GSA and Scrapebox, although, if you're a first timer, you still need to learn a lot:D

    while you've got the wallet open I'd add captcha sniper to the list. It'll pay for itself in no time with GSA, even if it doesn't do recaptcha's (yet?).

    It's preferable to use both in conjunction with one another. Use scrapebox to scrape sites and import into GSA for maximum link building awesomeness.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I'm still trying to decide between the two as well.
