    Hey,how useful sick is ? I know from some people its slow. I am not very pleasant with AMR going down and BMD having some issues with posting. So I am looking at sick as replacement of these 2 tools,and sick offers more options which is great if it works of course ;). So what you really like about sick and what trouble you the most. Thanks for you opinion.

    I dont use it too much, but the best thing about it is that it is cheaper then most softwares like that (such as SenukeX)

    So i guess what i like best is the price. You get a lot of link building opportunities built in to one software.

    I will be getting sick as it has capability to create unique packets for submissions. And reports are different in comparison to BMD,that what I have read,so will see how it will work out.

    sick marketing is Profile Submitter, Directory Submitter,Bookmark Submitter,Article Submitter, RSS Submitter with One-Touch Email Confirmation and Validation

    SB is more advanced tool mostly for scraping and data mining but it can post to blogs only (if you dont teach him)

    Teaching SB is something more advanced and time consuming. And SB only post to certain types of forums even if modified to do so.

    SB has never been able to post to forums? Where did you get that from?

    Perhaps you meant Sick Submitter?

    Also I should mention since I have got sick it rocks cause fiverr can't do drip feed,and all you have to do is get packets and start working with it. If you have any issues with the software support is there to help unlike BMD although they are improving.

    How's your success rate with sick? Did you buy any premium templates?

    I have purchased sic packets and success rate 90% for high PR profiles,also I have imported from BMD my list of social bookmarks and get 70%+ from the first run from 1k list,will try to create more template or just purchase them. This is way faster.

    stevenukas - how old are your sites?

    Most of mine are quire new so I am working along each tab doing 10 links at a time?

    Sounds like you are working through some big lists there? Are they pointed at a tier instead of your money site?

    Would be interested to know, as you sound confident in what your doing.

    Not sure why you compare Sick with BMD. I have both, and they do entirely different things for me.

    Sick (was) my directory, forum and article tool. BMD does my 22,000 pligg and scuttle sites.

    End of the day, both tools work well, but Sick has people regularly updating the packets, so If you can't be bothered to scrape your own, Sick has the advantage of community updates for bookmarking.

    But for ease of use I used to use BMD with my own scraped sites. Very similar success, the advantage of scraping your own sites is fresh lists that no-one else is using. The disadvantage is the time it takes.

    I find sicks GUI a pain in the ass though. Everything is so granular inside. If you are time rich and cash poor though, I would get it - and a couple of good packets.

    If you know how to scrape and update your own lists, I'd move on to another product and Sick's interface and work flow is about the worst I've come across. Every packet needs to hgave instructions read "fill this in" "leave this blank" "Set IE on" "Enable Java".."Don't enable Java" and all that crap.

    I prefer a tool that already KNOWS that simply by the footprint it's working with. You press "Go" and it makes the right choices for you.

    Being a programmer by trade for years, and like many people educated and employed in a field for decades, I now tire of doing simple checking and code tasks that I think subscription software should just "do" for you.

    I save my pregramming vigour for my own projects, not for pissing about with penny-ante linking tools.


    All that said, sick is a good choice for budget IMers and those with the patience to code their own packets (not just find sites for existing - but use "sick builder") but Ubot and Zenno do this a hell of a lot better and quicker.

    I used to order services as social bookmarking and other stuff,but expenses keeps just building,so my plan is to get basic of tools and higher programes for automation and have my own tools to automate the process. My site age varies,yeah trying to scale things up and push things to the limit. I do not blast my site instantly,try to keep the curve of links increasing and decreasing or just keeping it steady. Getting stuff ready for case study in here.

    @Scritty,BMD does bookmarks and sick also,just sick can handle a bit more stuff. What I wanted to know if sick could handle similar amount of bookmarks,since I had 3k+ sites in my BMD and success rate was was 30-40% at first run,captcher was killing me,I might reconsider purchasing again once they have captchersniper ability to use. You have huge list up in your BMD,it means in not such a good scraper ;) I totally agree when you make purchase of automation tools,it must automate your daily tedious work.

    Also due to recent AMR craches it made me to consider using sick as article submitter because AMR keeps messing my projects. Paying for a thing that works is not a problem,BMD got me frustrated of its errors. Sick at least have customer support where not that technical guys like me can have it solved within couple of days.

    I should add sick is more as backup plan if some tools stop working and I need to back it up a bit.

    The 1.5 beta version of Captcha sniper works with BMD through the CSSE interface. I might wait for 1.5 proper though if I was you.
    Even better, as 60% of BM sites use recaptcha these days...I might be tempted to wait till that is implemented properly in captcha sniper.

    For me though CS has paid for itself already several times over. A top tool for articles and blogs.

    Remember a tough link to get is often worth tens of thousands of links on trash filled "auto approve" blogs, and slow poster and captcha sniper running on a list all night (with a decent commnet, good proxies etc) will often give you a few dozen superb , l;ong lasting, high PR juice filled links in a night. Links that will be powering you SERPS long after the tens of thousands of trash links on auto approve sites have been discounted. CS running all night to get these is a great addition to any toolbox.

    You know for $12/mo avg price point, it's a very quality program. You can create forum profiles, social bookmarks, link directory backlinks, articles, web 2.0 creation and posting, etc etc.

    Whether it's a good program for you, depends on a few factors.

    1. Are you willing to learn the Sick language? Eventually, even if you buy premium packets, you will have to learn how the backend works. Because the sites change, or even if you are scraping your own lists, a batch of sites--even the same template, may have an extra field or what not that needs to be filled out. Well, you need to know how to edit the template then.

    If you aren't willing to learn the language, I would stay away from sick.

    2. Do you have the time to tinker with the packets/sites/error outputs? If you don't I suggest using fiverr/paid services, or products like SenukeX/Scrapebox/AMR in conjunction with high pr backlinks services to get ur rankings.

    Even though SenukeX might be $150/mo, you dont have to learn a lot compared with Sick. On the flipside, you cant scrape your own sites and create your own templates. Just keep that in mind.

    3. Sometime I think Sick tries to be an all in one, when other programs are better at doing their own thing. The blog commenter in sick, no way compares to Scrapebox. Profile creator is good, if your not trying to create Xrumer amount of links...again $500 plus for Xrumer vs $11/mo for sick plus time/captcha costs.

    Link directories, there's not many programs that handle these anymore. So it's pretty decent.

    Web 2.0 creation and posting is not bad either if u get the packet.

    Bottom line, just depends on ur needs.....do u want to do blog comments, and web 2.0/social bookmarks/social networks to the main sites with PR? Stick with senuke and scrapebox. If you would like to create ur own packet of sites that arent spammed to death through the major tools, then give sick a try.

    I'd say it's worth having in your arsenal since it's so cheap. It can't handle the largest lists ever and it's relatively slow but it has the power to allow you to create any type of packet you wish and to submit to any type of site you wish. Like mentioned before you can create packets of sites that no one has touched, and you can also post on ones spammed to high hell.

    It is very bare bones and clunky and if you scrape your own lists start with a big one because you're going to have a lot of fails.

    Like Scritty mentioned it is so temperamental and you have to fidget with so many things just to get it to go. The programming I feel is not the greatest. It is a bare bones semi powerful tool if you have TIME.

    Using scrapebox feels like this beastly POWERHOUSE and Sick kind of feels like this frail little engine that could that tries to do everything, and sort of succeeds. It's definitely got me some success but the margin for improvement with it is massive.

    Worth the $13/mo I pay imo

    Sick is a bit like owning a classic sports car - needs lots of care and attention, constant maintenance and its a bit clunky but stick with it and you will get a great ride (thats link diversity, and good rankings to you and me..) I like it, but its not my only tool :)

    Once captcha sniper release recaptchas, sick has got to be one of the best investment I have made apart from scrapebox.
    If I would use paid captchas, testing out those forum profiles and article platforms will just burn through my wallet.

    Sick submitter is a great tool, the only downside is that you MUST buy the premium templates or code your own if not the success rate is going to be very demoralizing.
