    I know that this question was asked few times before , but which tool would be better to build links without me having - captcha solver , vps , privateproxys ? Would it be of any backlink building use ? I'm planing to reinvest everything and buy both of the tools and all other necessities down the road ...

    The first question you have to ask yourself is:

    "What kind of links are you looking to build, and as Tier 1 or Tier 2".

    Both tools have their advantage compared to the other, but both of them are great for Tier 2 backlinks.

    In your case of NOT having Captcha Solver, VPS or even Private Proxies...
    I think the only tool is your bare hands. Of course Scrapebox might work on your PC with the AA List. But just how long your ISP will suspend your line due to spamming. If you're not afraid of having such suspension, go for scrapebox and AA - no captcha list. But be informed that backlinks from those kind of lists are about 1,000,000 OBL.

    If I had to go with one, it would be GSA, but if you're serious then you're going to want both. They both serve their own purposes.

    Then go with ScrapeBox for starters, but you will need IPs and VPS.

    After that you can add GSA to your arsenal.

    I asked this question a few weeks back i was hoping for a black friday deal on GSA but Scraper is on sale at the moment, I bought scraper because of the super deal offered and love it to bits, but like the advice you have been given you really do need both they work hand in hand.

    Thats a hard question because both tools are awesome.

    The only thing I don't like about Scrapebox is its slow as fuck at testing proxies. And this will get really annoying if you're a person like me who doesn't use private proxies. It also requires a lot more maintenance as far as scraping keywords, scraping lists, cleaning lists down, then finally posting to sites.

    I have built massive lists over the years with scrapebox and have over 3 million sites to post to. And I'm no expert at using either tool. But I've noticed that as far as time vs rewards go, I can keep SB running for days, and get 10-25% as many links indexed as GSA. Even if I blast say 300,000 urls, its a PITA just getting those links indexed.

    So once I got GSA, I stopped using SB for link building. Now I mostly use it for just building keyword / site lists for GSA.

    The downside to GSA is it can take a lot of optimizing to get your LPM up. But even if I submit to 1/1000th the amount of sites, I still wind up with more links getting indexed. And this its much easier to use with indexing platforms like indexification. Like if I submit to a bunch of urls using SB. I can't submit those links to indexification. As long as I've had Scrapebox its been very buggy. The "check links" option is slow as fuck, it takes years just to check which links stuck, and 99% of the time the program freezes. So in the 3 years I've had scrapebox, not one time have I successfully been able to verify urls then send them to indexification.

    In fact, A LOT of things about Scrapebox can be aggravating. I've never been able to harvest more than 300,000-400,000 urls at a time. The program ALWAYS freezes and I have to go in and find the list where it autosaves it in the folder. Then its pointless to reharvest urls since I have to start from square 1 again using the same keyword list. I realize I can break my lists down and use multiple instances of SB but it takes too much time and bullshit to deal with. I've never found an easy way to take a list of say 1,000,000 keywords and cut it down into 10 lists of 100,000 keywords. I have to go in and scan down from keyword 1 - 100,000, then save, then 100,000 - 200,000 and save.

    Again I'm not an expert at using the program, but most of the time its buggy, slow, and when you really try to push the envelope the shit just freezes up and breaks down.

    With GSA, I have NEVER had the program freeze once. It never stutters, it never acts weird, its runs 100xs smoother. I don't have to continually test proxies, and can just leave the shit running for days and get tons of verified / indexed links. The links are also much better quality imo.

    But like I said, I still use scrapebox cause its great for generating lists and filtering them down. It just causes me a ton of aggravation anytime I have large projects. So if I were to recommend software, I'd recommend GSA with Captcha Breaker. Especially if you're a newbie to automated software. Cause once you have a campaign set up you can let that shit run practically forever.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Scrapebox is bad. I know people on here who are masters at using it, and they can use it 100xs better than I can. But over the last 6 months I've veered over to using mostly GSA. And I've personally gotten much better results with GSA (ranking videos mainly) then SB.

    Go for both. GSA can give you web 2.0 (for tier 1) + thousands of tier 2 backlinks very fast... while you can use scrapebox to post comment on high PR domain or AA list (for tier 2). Combinations of both is a killer.

    I think the first question you need to ask your self is how many links can you realistically build with either tool without private proxies. You don't need captcha solver to get started nor do you need a VPS, but trying to build links with public proxies is going to be uber slow at best. Success can be 10 times less with public proxies. So you may need to repost to the failed as much as 10 times without private proxies, and then you still may not get ideal success rates. When you can purchase even $5 worth of private proxies on fiverr to post with, it doesn't make sense to do 10 times the work to save $5 for the month.

    If your profit margin is so low that saving $5 is that big of a deal, you should go work at McDonalds.

    That said both are great tools, both can post to 30+ platforms. Scrapebox has a lot more diversity outside of just building links then gsa does. For that I would start with scrapebox and after your maxing out all of its link building potential add in GSA. That way your still able to use the many other tools scrapebox offers in the mean time.
