I recently purchased Auto Backlink Bomb which is basically a forum profile link submitter which does everything for you it seems. With it you can register for forums which run on MyBB, SMF, Elgg and Expression Engine as well as the PhPfox platform. It already comes with some links built in for you (about 1500 links in total), but with the software you also get a link finder for scraping links from the above forum types, as well as a good guide on using it and a HubPages comment poster.
As I say, it does…everything. A nice touch that I found was that it adds a picture to your profile for you (you just have to replace it inside the program folder with the picture you want) but it also verifies your emails for you (considering you've used Yahoo which you can set up an email address from within the program also), and the speed this thing does it is quite amazing. I literally had signed up for about 150 Expression Engine sites in about an hour, verification was really quick and the backlinks took less than an hour I'd say.
I was quite astonished as I had bought the product because, yes it looked good, but at the price it's currently at of about $40, it seemed like a risk I was willing to take, but I am amazed by it. In my opinion it should cost more. And it's RIDICULOUSLY easy to use. I'm not hugely tech minded but I found my way around the software very easily.
The only things I wasn't sure of was the fact that you can't get it to not signup for captcha required sites, as I don't have a decaptcher account (which can be added to the software incidentally), though I really should, and would like to leave it running overnight. I suggested this to the developer and he emailed me back quickly saying he'll implement it on the next update. You can add the captchas yourself though, a box will pop up for you to fill out.
It also has an RSS Masher and Pinger which I haven't played with yet, but I'm sure they'll work as well as the rest of it.
I wanted to post a review up to share it with you guys as I think it's an essential tool to have for profile backlinking. Check it out if you can. I'm not affiliate with the software or the developer in any way, I just really love this software.
Enjoy it if you get it.
