    I think it all depends. There are a TON of idiots out there that are just blasting away and will give it a negative reputation. However, the smart people that know how to use it effectively are doing amazing things with it and i'm sure its their go-to tool. If you take the time to master it, i think it will be worth it.

    Every tool got his value i think, Some people just blast madly and when G penalized them they cry that software is crap or something else. If you use the tool wisely then it is effective and worth the price.

    I agree with RightinTwo.

    Mastering Xrumer is Key, otherwise it's a waste.

    It all depends on how you use it. There are tons of uses, you just need to figure out what works and what doesn't. Also, you can't be stupid with it like i've seen a lot of people do. Spamming away at your money site never works...

    What I tend to do is buy tools then spend time studying & mastering them. Been at senuke a week almost got the hang of it. Seems like xrumer is next on the list.

    profile links are just using their juice google catching up but blasting web 2.0 pages might still do some good its up to you if you are willing to pay for to figure out it its worth it or not.

    I would suggest using blasting service, it takes alot of time to learn how to use it.

    That's just my opinion.

    xrumers strength depends on the user. :) last time i checked 7 of my keywords are #1 in med comp niche. It is still a powerful software if you know how to use it correctly. :)

    I spam away my money site when it isn't high competitive niche and get good results. Just can't be arsed to make link pyramids as I can easily rank without too. But then again I don't do profile links, they rarely carry any link juice. They're only good for getting higher levels indexed, if you do link pyramid :)

    But xRumer can be used for many things, and those utilizing it only for profile links are kinda wasting its potential. And I think it also got a bit bad name because all the "xrumer blast" sellers are selling profile links, as that's easiest money grab for them.

    The blasting services rarely use it the best way. You will get nowhere the same results from them as if you just learned it yourself and used it in a way that actually works.

    Can u share the type of links u use it for if not profile links.

    I am def buying it. I use to do penetration testing for banks & hedgefunds so I have now doubt I can teach myself the software.

    Blog comments, guestbooks, wikis. The latest version should support phpdug/pligg too, but I haven't got around to try yet. There's also lots of mods for it, and you're free to play around with the files and teach it new platforms.

    If you want to work with forums, it's better to do actual posts than profiles. However, as lots of people will be seeing those posts you have to be sneaky about it. Good tactic is to do one run first, where you register and post initial comment like "hello, nice to be here!" or otherwise legit comment to relevant section (you can tell xrumer which are the priority categories). Then you let 3-4 days or one week to pass, and do another run where you edit all those previous posts to contain your link and maybe relevant text. That way you get your post in and also can put lots of relevant text with in-content links.

    There's lots of possibilities with it. Profile links is just for noobs and those who want to sell such service to get quick cash ;)
