    Hey,

    I would like to buy my first seo software. I read in the forum scrapebox is not recommended in these days. What's your opinion? Scrapebox? SEnuke?

    Thank you very much!

    There are 2 things
    1. Budget
    2.Strategy
    There are many alternatives for every kind of tool. SB is not recomended now a days True but its for Direct Blasting. You can still used in on 3rd , 4th tire. n there are many other functions in SB.

    Thanks guys for the replies.

    vicky00: "its for Direct Blasting" - why is direct blasting good if the result is penality?
    resz9: "and you need cs for that" - what is "cs"?

    Thank you again!

    Ah I understand now. Do you have experience with SEnuke? I checked GSA and it looks good. Thanks.

    Thank you ImNumber1. What dooes "All in one SEO tool" mean? SB has lot of features too. Is GSA All in one SEO tool?
    Sorry for these questions, I know its too much but there are dozens of softwares and I don't know what's the difference. GSA harvest links, and submit, SB do same?! But people recommend GSA, but why? GSA build links with different method?

    Yep, for a new newbie you can't go far wrong with GSA and CS. They're great and will really get you some good results if you use it to blast your tier 1s. Set it up to automatically make tier 2s/3s and 4s and you're laughing!

    All I can say is stay away from SENuke. It's so overrated.

    Well, first figure out what you need it for. don't just go and buy software because somebody recommends it. seo software does specific things it is not like a red button with "make money" on it. You actually need to understand what each software does and then see if that helps your seo tehnique. I'm a newbie at seo but that's something i understand very clearly. You simply can't expect software to be a one-stop-solution to any seo needs.

    That being said, here are a few things I found by researching software. These are my own subjective opinions so not everybody would agree.

    * SENukeX - decent tool but overpriced for what it does. Worst thing is you have to pay monthly and as I said it is not cheap. Why many seem to like it i don't. It has lots of bells and whistles, diagrams and nice interface and all that. However most stuff is fluff. Bottom line is, while it supports many platforms, most of them are better automated using other software.

    * XRumer - good tool, extremely hard to use at a pro level (build addons/plugins). Saves tons of money with captcha. Not expensive for what it does in my opinion. It costs like $500 and you'd pay that in a year (or even a lot more) on captcha with other software. Many people seem to complain it doesn't work anymore or is not a good tool. Those are people who don't know how to use it and/or do a crappy job and just spam crappy forum profiles and hope they stick. I have a friend who taught me the basics of XRumer and he always told me that using xrumer is like the saying "if i had 8 hours to cut down a tree, i'd spend 6 hours sharpening my axe". In other words, you have to put the time in filtering the forum lists, building very good spintax and handling all the small details. Otherwise you're just wasting time and bandwidth.

    * Scrapebox - considering what it offers and the price you must be crazy to say it is a bad tool. It is a great scraping tool. For commenting it sucks but not because scrapebox sucks as a tool but because those comments are on sites spammed too much and mostly nofollow, hence not very useful. However for somebody without coding skills like myself to be able to have a tool like scrapebox it is priceless.

    * Ultimate Daemon - good tool as long as you know how to find good lists. Also it is pretty fast at posting and the price is not bad either. I have my lists provided by a friend he has a dedicated server checking proxies and scraping 24/7/365 and I'm lucky to get the lists already filtered for free.

    * Sick Submitter - similar to ultimate daemon but you need templates. I mean you can make your own but i'm not good at coding and all that so i just bought a few templates. In other words you pay for sick the monthly fee and you have to pay templates too. Keep that in mind.

    * Manual work - if you do it right is better than anything else. I was stubborn the first few days when i started working on my sites and doing seo. I thought you just have to use tools, press "start" and get as many links as you can. I don't know if i was just being very stupid and full of myself or if its just a problem i gt from information overflow from reading forums and blog posts about seo. My friend said i'm stupid and i will loose in the long time. Took me like a whole week of talking to him to actually understand what he means. He actually spent hours showing me why and how i'm shooting myself in the foot with what i'm doing.

    bottom line - first figure out what you want to do, then figure out which tools help you do that.

    It has been said before but you should probably get a copy of Scrapebox. It is very cheap and is like a Swiss army knife. I mainly use it for building targetted email lists to feed into phpList, checking if lists of URLs are indexed, checking PR of lists of URLs and so on. It has many uses. I never use it for blog comment spam even though that seems to be what many people assume it is for.

    The Best Spinner is a very useful tool and so is GSA SER. They are both very cheap too, although not as cheap as Scrapebox.

    You guys said the GSA is better than SB. But the two apps do similar things, submit links, make profiles etc. What's the difference between these softwares?

    I definitely not recommend using software for money site. By using software you can't have full control (for example unique content from each backlink created, different platforms, link velocity, quality links, no footprints).

    For tier 2 i suggest ultimate demon.

    I have an important task that needs doing.
    Please tell me if I should get a hot air balloon or a 42" colour TV?
    Then my friend says I should consider buying 1/2 a hectare of land in Glencoe?
    Arrrgghh
    I'm really confused now
    Which will work best for me?


    Thanks for letting me waste your time with a question where no real answer is possible - because I've neglected to tell you anything about what it is I'm actually trying to ACHIEVE here.
    THERE IS NO OVERLAP BETWEEN NUKE AND SCRAPEBOX (SB works very well BTW - no issues at all I use 4 licences of it 24/7)

    Applications are there to solve problem or speed up a manual process.
    Tell us your problem or describe your manual process - and we might be able to give you a sensible answer.

    If you can't describe your problem, have no idea what your manual process is (or would be becasue you haven't even thought about it)

    THEN DON'T BUY ANYTHING.

    Sit down, work out a plan, understand the inputs, outputs, process and desired effect. UNderstand SEO or whatever else it is you are trying to work with. Do it manually so you can see the traps, benefits and pitfalls, measure your results. THEN if you want to speed it up, automate, outsource, widen the scope of something you already FULLY UNDERSTAND

    Go out and buy the application that fulfills the goals you have already identified.

    Don't buy an application to do SEO for you
    First understand SEO and have a rock solid method - then buy an application to speed it up and save time

    Scritty
