    A recent conversation thread about Se Nuke started me wondering about this. Sure, there's a lot of software out there that's brutally efficient... but they also seem to be about as subtle and delicate as a hammer. Which might be very good for certain people, but what about those who value foot print over volume?

    What are the lightest softwares then? And how possible is it for a software to even be light... or is a messy foot print a result of design?

    Hmm.....

    BuildMyRank is pretty good. All articles are reviewed and must be unique so it's about as whitehat as software goes. However, each article (by the time outsourcing costs are factored in) costs me about $2.50 which seriously expensive.

    I was considering senuke x.
    Is it safe to run on my money site do you think?

    Honestly you can use those tools, and tools like Scrapebox without leaving much of a footprint if you know what your doing and how to reduce the footprint site.

    So no- a messy footprint is generally the result of improperly using the tools that you have and not the other way around.

    Seriously you all are too paranoid about footprints.

    I'm tired of reading posts like "Oh well you probably got sandboxed because you closed the 15th spoke of your link wheel when you should've left it open" blah blah blah

    Google is not an all-seeing GOD. Though it is good at what it does, it is still an imperfect machine that can be gamed.

    It has billions of pages to deal with, it doesn't care about your "footprint".

    Sure every now and then you may hit the sandbox, but even then if you build links you'll pop right out.

    Just don't do any shady stuff (keyword stuff, invisible text, copyright material etc) keep adding links and fresh content and you'll be fine.

    Frankly, when I first read the thread I thought you were originally referring to the applications usage of computer resources. But to your point the footprint you leave is directly proportional to your skill when wielding the instrument. A scalpel in the hands of a surgeon is life giving but in the hands of a butcher, well you get the picture. Learn to use all tools on your non-money or feeder sites first.

    Whatever you use, I suggest you use a VPN, along with private proxies. You can't be more anonymous, then...

    But if it's a software your using and it's nature is to build giant churn n burn wheels then I don't see how you can help but leave a traceable footprint behind even if you put in a lot of work. I was under the impression that google could recognize certain tactics and patterns and that some softwares were probably going to be better at not leaving those.

    It is always good to mix it up so it look more natural.

    But isn't the whole reason that people buy that it gives them a predetermined off loading of work, a lot of the manual work that they'd have to do on their own without it? Why else pay for it? Wouldn't you just do it from scratch then and not pay for some dude's code that doesn't help?

    Is there anything light at all?

    Just make sure you don't follow the same pattern. As Kikou said, mix things up!

    But that is what *I* do with it... you could say that about any tool. The question is which one does the best job of it's own. Which is the best in doing as much as IT can do to be lightfooted.
