    Hi !
    I wondered the same after having seen the sales video. The idea of planning your strategies visually is very good.
    So, I am curious on opinions of users!

      I use it and really like it. It allows you to easily create complex link networks. You can even schedule all of the link building and email and web 2.0 account generation at different future dates. It will even create email accounts for you.

      After you've plotted your link network, everything is sent off to SACentral, which is based on the Serpassist server. Tons of proxies are used at SACentral, so you don't have to set up any yourself. If you have a VA, you can export your link network designs for them to use.

      You get about 200 captchas with the monthly price. After that, you can enter your own captcha service info. I like it more than SENuke because it's cheaper and it allows more flexibility. The normal price is $97 but you can sign up for $77 if you search Google or I can PM you a discount link.

      One last thing, you can try it for 30 days. If you don't like it and cancel before day 30, you get a complete refund so it's worth a shot.

        Thanks for the report, it definately sounds good, i am currently using EVOII but this looks like it might be better and easier to use.

        I think i might give it a shot

        cheers

          No problem. It's really intuitive to use. You can probably master it in less than 15 minutes. The cool thing is that you can always go back to your projects and add more links. The developer is very quick to sort things out and he's constantly adding sites to the program.

            Well, I had a look at it and I could not see any mention of the supported services, so i asked in the support forum and quite frankly I don't think it makes sense spending $97 per month for software that supports a TOTAL of about 18/20 services, including social bookmarking web 2.0 AND rss feed aggregators.

            yes it looks nice but the scope of it is still quite limited

                    Thanks, but to clarify there is a limit in the amount of accounts you can make in a day per service. Which I totally understand, that's why they need more sites.

    this is interesting, the video is very well made , thank you Sarah

    I might give this a go but the limited list of supported sites is a deal breaker at the moment.Does anyone know their plans as regards to the size of sites supported?

    I'll carry on with Evo 2 , but will keep an eye on this one.

    This can be a great testing tool, once I know what I can get away with in google by using this tool after a month or so I will scale the hell out of it with senuke typically...

    When i do it this way I tend to get way better results, when I would typically use senuke first on new domains I am forced to play in the sand...

    best of luck.

    Is it worth the $77/month? That's pretty steep for the lack of sites the service offers.

      If they had more sites it would be a slam dunk, as is it's still pretty decent. I hope they go to the web based client soon though. They offer you your money back if you cancel within 30 days so I say go for it.

    I've been using it for just over a week.
    There are pros and cons, I consider it just-better-than-borderline value for money right now but possibly heading towards greatness in the near future ... to be proven over time, of course.

    Cons:
    Limited number of properties, profile accounts and bookmarking accounts involved, limited number of email accounts that can be created each day, only a single page on most Web 2.0 properties (just introduced multiple pages on one or two properties in the past 48 hours or so) ... $77 a month (the discounted rate) isn't cheap.

    200 decaptchas provided per month as part of the package is a pro, but you have to buy a key for one of the decaptcha services if you need more which might be considered a "con" by some. Proxies are provided as part of the processing by their Central server which is a pro but at the moment you can't plug-in your own if you want to, which might be a 'con" to some.

    If you want to take RSS feeds and submit them to aggregators, that's a manual operation. A "project" right now is limited to 3 target pages on a domain, so there's an overhead with set-up ... for example, 3 projects to be created for a 9-page site. It's quick enough to set these up, just an irritation, and the developer is (I believe) going to expand this.

    Pros:
    I find the visual approach is fascinating and intuitive, opens the door for every link network to be entirely unique and as simple or complex as you want.

    So for example, you can have several blogs linking to each other and to your target pages; bookmark your target pages and the blogs; create profile accounts that link to the blogs or to the target pages; have other blogs linking to each other and to the "first layer" of blogs; have these bookmarked, have profile accounts linking to these; etc. Then do it again, entirely differently, for some other pages or websites.

    You can pre-schedule events like the creation and linking of properties; grow a network to a high degree of complexity step by step over time very easily; test all sorts of simple linking strategies on individual pages within a site. For me, it's a "pro" that the built-in spinner is compatible with The Best Spinner.

    A major benefit from my perspective is that you work on the diagram on your desktop, press "submit" then walk away ... the creation is all handled on the vendor's "Central Server" approach, according to the schedule I set, through the range of proxies they provide.

    The developer is very open about what it can and can't currently do, and fairly responsive in the Forum and to emails. He seems to be working on some very attractive enhancements.

    While I'm taking advantage of it right now to add variety to my link-building and test some strategies, and I'm **only just** comfortable with the value for money ...this could easily be VERY good, quite soon. We'll see. I'm certainly not dropping EVO to replace it with SERPassist ... but I am using both, in combination with other services.

    There's a $7 for 7 days trial at the moment; easy to get your money's worth out of that by building a network or a few.

      When I searched for Senuke with Chrome, the first site at the top ( actually the only one in yellow ) was this :

      SENuke is for Amateurs
      Get Serpassist Instead. $7 Trial Cheaper and More Powerful

      Then I did a search in the WF and found SERPassist compared to LinkPro.

      Can the 2 products ( Senuke and SERPassist ) be compared ?

        I don't think you can compare the 2. SEnuke has more backlinking capabilities but the interface of SERPAssist is quite unique as it allow you to build links wheels very easily.

        From what I learned while using SERPAssist, you need highly spinnable articles in order to make the most of it.

    Any updates from anyone? I'm keen but I'd be happier paying $45 not $77 - I only have 6 small sites active at the moment while I'm learning the ropes. It seems like a lot of to pay each month.

    Shame we can't tempt the developer here for a WSO :-)

      I'm here (I don't get out that often).

      SA is normally $97 per month - via the affiliate network you can get it down to $77 per month.

      Currently, there are no plans for a WSO as some of the affiliates have put together some really good material (videos, etc) and I think they should be rewarded for that effort.

    I've been a member for about a month now. I have been using it and have also had one of my outsourcers learn to use it. I LOVE it!

    There is so much to be said for being able to set these things up and literally "walk away"... meaning that once you set up your link diagram/strategy for your project, everything is then handled by the SerpAssist server - not me. I don't have to worry about accounts and profiles being created (or not), blog posting, links, bookmarking. It's all done and out of my hands.

    Now that's worth some $$. And, yes - I am seeing results on the sites that I've used it on so far. I have many sites on Page 1 of Google - Is it because of SerpAssist or because I'm just a genius? I'd venture to give the bulk of the credit to Dave.

    I'm wondering how this would compare to SEO Link Robot? It almost seems like the Robot would be a better value, assuming the developer keeps it current, which is always a question.

      HMMMM. I have really been beating myself over the head between what to go with: SENuke or SerpAssist. With SEN being $125 and Serpassist being $77, i am leaning to give SerpAssst a trial run. I can afford SENke, but if Serpassist can work just as good, i obviously would like to go with that ; )

      Anybody here tried both and have an opinion?

    With SENUKES new features locking in the 127 seems like a good idea. Some reviews I have seen indicated very little results with serpassit.

      Serpassist is a rip off.

      Slow submissions, low number of sites to submit to, terrible and rude support, ridiculous price tag for all you get.

      It is more like a $10/month tool than $77

      I tried it for a couple of weeks because I was told there was a 7 day trial and 30 day guarantee.

      I carried on after the 7 days waiting for my submissions to happen then when lots of them still didn't go through I requested a refund and now the rude, arrogant owner is just ignoring me.

      Avoid this one like the plague and get in with senuke x now. When it comes out you will see how much of a rip off serpassist really is.

      edit: just got my refund

      As the developer and owner of SERPAssist, I can assure you customers that know how to do SEO are using the tool with great results.

      If you expect SERPAssist to "do it for you" this is NOT the solution for your SEO needs. There are way too many overblown claims out there - SEO is hard work, SA is just a tool that helps. You still need a strategy and a plan.

      Is there more to do? Absolutely.

      More sites to add? Yup.

      Rude and a ripoff? I guess we all have our opinions.

      SA currently supports over 20 Web 2.0 sites, including a network of private sites that are only available to SA users.

      I just released a new version tonight and it includes:

      - Automated bookmarking (just set and forget and all your blogs in the diagram will get drip-fed 3-5 bookmark backlinks per day from a variety of sites)

      - Private WP support (want to include your own blog in a diagram? You can now include your own Wordpress blog)

      There is a HUGE list of additional features that are under development and SA is just getting started.

      Feel free to drop me a line with any questions you may have.

      They are similar in what they do, just not how they do it. SEOLR does not have the visual aid interface of SerpAssist. I think that is a pretty neat feature.

      However, I tried them both and greatly prefer SEOLR. It is easy to use and extremely reliable.

        Thanks Mike

        I have been going through the comments and it seems that the serpassist interface is what is getting attention and not so much the results - although the comment that Dave made about SEO is a valid one. SEOLR is a good tool and I also like the once off payment. Good response and support from Steve and it works well with the wpsyndicator and energiser plugins if you are using WP.

        That interface does look pretty though - especially for someone who likes to work visually.

    I have been using SerpAssist now for over 3 months. The tool looks visually great but is very slow at submissions. Have i seen a great improvement in my rankings, not really. Is it worth $77pm for me it is not. Recently i switched over to SEOLR, 1 time payment and does a similar job.

        Well, I wanted to add in my 2 cents here. I believe this program is well worth the monthly price. What I liked about it was that I didn't have to have it running on my PC, it runs on their servers so it frees up my PC for whatever. I know a lot of people need 1000's of decaptchers, but really 200 is a nice bonus and other programs require you to buy them, so 200 free is a nice bonus I think.

        Plus I don't have to worry about proxies so that was another good thing.

        I liked that I could control the schedule as well. I would set up the emails and the web20 accounts and then let them sit for 5 days. I think my rate of stickyness was excellent as I rarely had deleted posts.

        Being able to add my own blogs is also a nice deal. One thing it does not have is Profile linking unless you manually enter them. However, recently my VA got a virus from doing hundreds of profile backlinks. So, one of the sites that was visited gave her a virus. She has no clue which one. She had to reinstall windows.

        I believe her PC is pretty old and her virus protection may be poor, but the fact is I think I would rather hire someone at Fiverr to blast the profile links to a huge list of URl's (which some of them will do) then risk my own PC or even risk hers. I have advised my VA's not to use profile linking anymore due to this issue. It's just me... I'm sure most people do fine.

        I believe you can manually add in profile sites, which is good because you can go to the trusted sites and you can also select niche specific forums etc... which in the end would be better anyway.

        Now then... I can't give you any stats for the SEO part because.... my main clients are not too smart and no matter what I suggest they insist on keywords like - HOUSE or CREDIT... and they of course won't get high ranking with those keywords with the amount of money they invest in SEO.

        I think this is a great program. I like it. I stopped using it for a few months to try out a "new" software program, but I am going back to SerpAssist now that I've tested both I like SA better.

        The other thing it doesn't have is article directory submissions. However, again... it's not hard to add this in with either hiring someone in Fiverr or using something like Magic article submitter, which I use and works nicely. Or perhaps a blog network.

        Since they offer a trial, I say take the trial. Remember you can't get good results on high competitive keywords unless you do a LOT of SEO and use more than one technique. Or... you're really amazing and you've figured out how to do it without these software programs.

        Bottom line is this - to each his own - test, try, use what works for you!
