    I'm not continuing with it. I ran one campaign, and haven't been able to get it to open since. Tech support wanted me to hit help > logs but I couldn't due to the fact that it would crash on startup. So while the other products I've seen bear grabbing, I think this does not.

    This was the first one, though the others I've seen look like very good wordpress plugins which I may just grab and test.

    It looks like it just creates (spinnable) social bookmarks? I think these kinds of links have lost their power lately...

    Not sure how effective they are by themselves? Maybe it adds to an already created SEO campaign but not sure how well it would work just by itself??

    Any other thoughts on this software and the types of links it creates? Guess I may try the trial for just a buck.

      You are right, the recent panada update has reduced the power of these type of backlinks to
      almost zero. The best type of back links now to get is from high authority sites like squidoo, ezinearticles, goarticles and create a linkwheel between these web 2.0 properties.

          Yes, it is confusing to me too. Can someone plse clarify whether getting backlinks from EZA + similar article directories, and bookmarking sites are still worth going for? THANKS! Di

        Just to be clear I havn't bought this product but I couldn't help but comment on this.

        Thomas you said that because of panda the social bookmarking sites are worth zero. Then you tell people to get links in article directories and other sites like that. I don't understand that, you tell people to go get links on site that Google slapped with the Panda update in the first place.

        EzineArticles just as an example lost almost 25K in daily traffic as a result of the Panda update.

        Social bookmarking does work. It brings backlinks and traffic to my site everyday. If use properly you can see the same results just track it with your analytics and see for yourself.

        Regards,
        Clint

          This.

          It works even better for smaller sites with low competition. To be able to build ~400 bookmarks in less than an hour is incredible.

          Also,

          UPDATE:

          I used Digi Traffic Accelerator all day yesterday and Monday.

          I did 14 runs between these 2 days, on client sites. I added a few more proxies, and also made one new account.

          The program is still working like a charm...I didn't do the full run-through with these sites, since I only wanted to build ~100-150 bookmarks each time. I really want to create some more accounts, as it stands I only have like 3 or 4 (forgot to document it when I first ran the program). If someone can confirm that Captcha Sniper works with this, then my costs will be cut immensely, and I'll have this thing building me tons of accounts and running 24/7.

          Today, I did a full-run through on one of my own sites...it built a total of 285 backlinks. Would've liked that to be a little higher, but it's still pretty good none-the-less:



          I think it may be time to rotate out my proxies, and maybe create another account or 2.

          Couple of things:
          • Really hoping Captcha Sniper works with this
          • Still needs an account management system
          • Needs some way to control how many backlinks you want to create
          • Keep expanding the database of sites, social bookmarking sites are notorious for coming and going

        This is my experience too ! Be very careful with the type of backlinks you want . Go for quality rather than quantity

    Eric,

    It looks like it posts to over 500 bookmark sites. I can see it really helping with indexing and for low competition/longtails that I may be trying to rank for.

      So, from the panda update point of view, how often would it be safe to do social bookmarking for the same site with different urls? I've got new posts created; would be ok to throw 500 social bookmarking for each post " on the same day" or "every other day"? Also i use the same profile when i am doing the social bookmarking, would that be harmful? Or should i use different profile to do the social bookmarking; overall how much does it help in terms of rank improvements? I mean i can do the test myself with the site but that means taking risk, however since it is a brand new site and i very much like the site i am very hesitant to take any risk; i want to do it carefully and hear from someone who has used this method very well. I think the main purpose of social bookmarking is to index the posts, however i'm quite skeptical if it could help at all with the overall rankings for that particular keyword!

        Support on DTA is crap...

        I'm 3 day into my trial period and I have 3 accounts etup with 744 546 & 646 accounts unconfirmed...

        Not good if you ask me...

        I let support know.. and waited...

        They told me it would activate accounst at every start up of DTA...

        Really?????

        Must be missing something as I restarted at least 10 times and the unconfirmed remain the same...

        Answers on a postcard please...

        Not impressed so far..seems like a lead balloon..

          I've been a member since launch date.

          My past 2 months have been nothing but back and forth with support(more back than forth! in all honesty!!!!).

          I keep spending on Captchas and accounts sit unconfirmed until they die.

          Very disappointed with support....its always pls send the log files, and then nothing, no feedback, no solutions, no closure....always a vague email like ......

          A few users are experiencing a similar issue....you should now be ok to try again...and guess what? I'm not.

          Not worth the monthly subscription.

          I'd love to see Andy weigh in on this but nada so far.

    I thought the launch videos from Andy where very interesting with the high and low gear sites listed and gave good advice on traffic, and the idea of automating things seemed a good idea to me, but after buying the trial I even was not able to install the program on my computer, and did not received an answer to my support ticket after 24 hours, so I cancelled the recurring subscription.

    This is not the first time I tried a product from Andy but I had never luck with his products so far, even if he seems to be genuine.

    First full disclosure - I am a DTA affiliate. I am also in Andy's peer group.

    Second, sorry if the past versions crashed for you. it is written in Microsoft Dot Net 4, and yeah my Microsoft machine sucks too.

    however post beta versions run like a dream on my win7 64 bit.
    you can get to the log files via explorer, although the urls are cryptic.

    I am not sure why DR support could not take you further. That's a question for digiresults.
    Ultimately, not all machines will work with every permutation of stuff. But you can always refund if it doesn't work. Or use another machine like a laptop or windows VPS or cloud.

    The TRIAL launch is $1 so I really suggest you just find out for yourself Chris.
    No amount of any one elses results will sway you, I am sure!
    In fact I'd hope not.

    All the people saying
    "NO IT CAN'T WORK"
    I'd suggest you try it and not "assume".

    I'll get in to the complex discussion of how SEO works in the next message!

    All I can tell you is I TRIED IT
    and I've got "HUMAN" results within 5 and then 10 days.
    (by human I mean non robot, like newsletter signups, video views and facebook likes)

    My SEO is google dancing like it's on crack
    and my video views went up 300%.

    Sure it all sound glamorous and hype.
    That's why you need to try it for yourself and not be a lemming (no offence to lemmings or any one else).

    In the "real world", my world, in 10 days, I have about 20 visits I can concretely attribute to DTA, because I did what I could to make sure those pages were only DTA promoted.
    I even turned RSS ping off on the blog before each test.

    Sure I can't state 100% because they are linked internally somewhere

    I can't reliably state what the knock-on effect is.
    All I can tell you is SEO wise my blog generally is google dancing in the positive direction.

    On the version I did, without DTA, it is running along like the normal pathetic "build it and they will come" results. Aka PATHETIC. That has RSS and content updates. It trickles, like non promoted or trusted sites do.

    I know 20 visits in the real world may sound pathetic, but these are actual potential buyers. Not stray traffic. They are in my funnel.
    To achieve that, on a NIL DEMAND BRAND like DTA in 10 days, using free traffic, is pretty exciitng in my book.

    For $1, I can't see why any one would not at least actually try it for themselves.
    I really don't!

    If you see no benefit on day 6, you cancel!

    Prove it for yourself.
    Don't listen to my (or any one elses) results.

    If you want hype and false claims and dream groupies, we have the special offers forum for that.
    I apologise upfront if that touches any ones nerve, but this is real life, not projected incomes of something that happened once, to somebody, who knew somebody.

    You can prove this one way or another for yourself for one buck.

    I'm not sure why this thread even exists - LOL

    I've only replied because I am fed up with nay slayers who assume on third hand info.

    To answer the site source questions, if you did the pre launch freeline content, he gave you a list of 400+ such sites they use.

    If you read the report and watched the video, you'll know WHY these 400+ sites were selected.

    NO
    there is not any article directory sites in the list, like Ezine,
    because the "content" offered (spintax supported) is of bookmark length.
    i.e. a few sentences.

    Think more facebook wall, than article directory.

    OK let's get in to the long and tedious debate about SEO

    I will keep coming back to edit this thread, so I haven't finished typing yet!

    This is only MY version of the truth.
    SEO is not black and white and NO ONE has a 100% success rate, or they'd be infinitely rich already!

    This is not the DR "line". Any where we agree is purely coincidence, or fact ;-)

    The more backlinks you have, the more "chances" you have of getting found.
    Purely because even 1 visitor per month of traffic, may see and click a link. They may not of course. But the chance exists.
    aka more links, more chances.

    In "SEO" terms, if those links are not FOUND by the search engines (ie google, bing, yahoo) there is zero benefit of SEO.

    In "SEO" terms, if those found links are not then INDEXED, as in they are included in the directory, then the benefit is a LOT less. But it is NOT zero.
    We can argue about the scale, but let's pretend it is 0.001 points.
    IMHO that is close to the truth. I own enough sites to say that!

    So for every 1000 of these found but un-indexed backlinks you do, you may get 1 point - i.e. the equivalent of 1 blog comment (yeah no follow, yeah 1 point).

    So brain dead backlinkers, do 100,000 backlinks, like these, because they can.
    Good luck to them.
    IMHO that approach is dumb. Reason coming.

    Search engines (like google) KNOW they are being "played" by these sorts of links and hence they continually devalue the worth of any links they believe to be "engineered"

    However, even with googles resources, it is hard to separate truth from fiction, quickly or reliably.

    So in LOW COMPETITION areas, where there is little else fresh trusted content, albeit social discussion, crap can still win.

    People DO make money out of crap, all day, every day.
    I can't be bothered doing crap, because it is short lived and takes too long!
    For me it is a penny pinching business.
    It does not make business sense - even with third world rate out sourcing.

    Let alone the ethics and screwing the Internet up for everyone else.

    SEO DEBATE PART 2

    OK so if "spammy" links are such low score and it kinda sucks, why do we all still do it?

    why does senuke exist and cost $$$ per month
    serobot, traffic kahuna, web2mayhem, sicksubmitter, scrapebox, xrumer, etc.

    and countless WSO special backlink offers and services every month?

    Because like I just said, CRAP SELLS every day.
    And as I said, Google can only ever play catch up, unless they want to penalise the good guys.

    Which they have. And will continue to do so.
    Hence the 100+ algorithm updates every year.
    Plus manual reviewers still exist, albeit it y% of the original work force.

    So first things first.
    if everyone used the same sites to spam links, they'd get less effective.

    Look at angela profile links
    look at ezine articles
    look at the role of digg and twitter these days

    everything still works, but to what extent?
    less than 0.001 of a point?

    DTA has picked a set of sites.
    My understanding is they update this list, monthly.

    Many of these sites are off the radar.
    Why?

    Didn't I just tell you?

    In the freeline content, they explained how a SPREAD of tactics is beneficial.
    So some know, some unknown
    some follow, some no follow
    some high pr, some minus pr
    etc.

    So all we are saying is

    BACKLINK DIVERSITY

    any SEO "guru" should conceed that point.
    it's about being "SEO natural".

    OK now we get to the meat.
    And why DTA and anything like it, has even a remote chance of helping you...

    I'm not sure I even want to give this info away,
    so I'm going to eat toast and come back.


    BTW did I mention it was $1 to find out about DTA for yourself yet?
    Sure with SEO we normally have to wait like 90 days to see a measurable result.
    But DTA also uses SOCIAL aspects (i.e. bookmarking sites HUMANS actually browse - who knew?)
    As I mentioned already,
    in my tests, DTA has brought me measurable and attributable "HUMAN results" within 48 hours, every time I have run it.

    The accumulating effect is still positive.

    Is it ALL you will ever need to do?
    Absolutely NO WAY IN HELL!

    Is it worth $40 per month?
    Well only IF you earn from $40 per month from it.

    Can you? Will you? Should you? ever earn $40+ per month...

    Well that's down to way more than 1 backlinking tool

    OK toast, then "I will be back" - LOL

      So what are you saying, is this worth getting? I know you mentioned its only $1, however I value my time a lot more. What i mean by that is I dont really want to send 2-10hrs trying to work out this new shinny gadget. Is a week really enough time to see results? I dont think so. tbh, I dont see much if not any tools that provide good links, unless you are Manually doing it yourself.

    @wrc1010 raise a ticket with DigiResults.
    Captcha use with DeathByCaptcha is under $2 per round for sure. I don't have an exact figure.

    They also just pushed out an update, so quit and relaunch, although I am aware of no issues.

    During the beta, the 1 time my machine crashed during a blast, DTA resumed where it left off on reboot.


    @milla04
    OK well you got me with time vs $1 ;-)

    Point is DTA is supposed to be an 8 minute tool!
    You let if run in the background for the hour or whatever, but your input should be done in 8 minutes.
    AKA
    what you want to promote and how you're going to present it (socially)


    OK so back to the nitty gritty.

    I think the majority will say that SEO and organic and social traffic, is NOT quick or non intensive.

    As I mentioned already, the crap sellers can just "blast" stuff out, and are happy with the short term results. They just rinse and repeat.

    That isn't what DTA is aimed at AFAIK.


    The way I run my business, will be very different to many of you.
    I mainly do AUTHORITY sites and back that up with my own network of properties.

    The way "I" do authority sites, takes time and effort, and invariably MANUAL labour (outsourced, but non the less, human labour)

    I am aware of most systems for authority publishing, and I haven't found a single one that is any quicker, or adds any advantage to my own methods.

    Tricks and fads come and go. They don't really impact on authority publishing.
    There is no "loop hole" to being the best.

    Over the years, keeping market share (authority) has become more difficult.
    partly because of all the "noise" from the crap shifters, if not in itself, because of googles necessary counter measures.

    Now backlinks and SEO is only 1/6th of the battle plan.

    We can argue about the percentage.

    But it used to be just "existing" (those were the days).
    Then it was content.
    Then it was backlinks.

    Then social raised its head and ducked down again.

    Then the ass fell out of SEO.

    I'll explain in a later post.
    And offer an answer for what you are really asking

      Okay, another question. Unfortunately I wont be using this for my authority sites as I dont want anything to affect them. What I am planning to use this tool or a tool that can create links to citation sites. How affect will this be? For example have all the links pointing to a business review page i.e angies list.. would DTA be worth using for this or social book marking out of date.

      Full disclosure - I am an affiliate for this product.

      With that said, I got the "beta-beta" version of it about 3 weeks ago or so directly from Andy on skype. I had no trouble running it way back then, before the official version, and I have not ran the "alpha" version because the beta worked just okay for me.

      I picked an ooooold site I hadn't touched in years, and spent a few minutes getting the accounts set up for the social bookmarking sites. Then I just let it run... and that was pretty much all I did.

      A week later I went back and looked at my traffic log for the old site and where there was once nothing... there was SOMETHING. I dug further... while it's true a lot of the traffic was just bots, there was legitimate HUMAN traffic that was generated. maybe 35-45 unique visitors if I recall correctly.

      I don't care what you think about social bookmarking links being good, bad, or whatever. Fact is I was impressed that a few minutes of efforts the first time I used it produced a decent quality traffic surge on a dead duck site.

      That's why I decided to promote it because it worked good for me.

    Okay,

    I have absolutely ZERO experience with DTA so please excuse my ignorance. From what I am reading, it looks like this tool has the functionality of an SeNuke X or a magic submitter, but instead of submitting several links - this only deals with bookmarks.

    If that is the case instead of running DTA in the background - can this software be ran on a VPS like the other two I mentioned earlier?

      Hey guys i have had it since it launched the other day.
      I'm not an affilliate.

      It's an application that auto submits to bookmarking sites. Not gonna debate whether bookmarks are good links or not. There will be opinions on both sides, you just gotta pick your side and decide from there.

      The program worked great on my desktop, tried installing it on my laptop and can't get it running, working with support now to get it solved.

      You can add proxies to it which is cool if you are going to be submitting alot of website links to the bookmarking sites. You can create different accounts as well. The system makes up a "fictitious" account using the email you supply and creates accounts. You can use a catcha service or you can type in the captcha manually.

      You add your link, you add your title which can be spun

      You add your description, which can be spun, and you hit go.

      It sends out the links to the accounts, and it gives you a report that you can copy paste and ping.

      I have only sent out one campaign so far but seems like a pretty solid application. Support has been good and working to get it running on my laptop, like any launch there are gonna be bugs and the support is gonna be slow because of the initial rush, it's just part of product launches.

      It's a buck to try it out and only 20 bucks a month so it is not a bank breaker by any means. I like it so far

      I picked up Digi Traffic Accelerator yesterday.

      For those that don't know, this is a tool to build social bookmarking links. I believe there's around 500 or so in the list...which we never get to see.

      1st Run - I decided to not use a captcha service and no proxies. It didn't go well...after spending about 45 minutes entering captchas, I decided to stop, but there's no way to stop entering captchas..so I had to CTRL+ALT+DEL and manually close the program. I don't think the program created any accounts, and really, there's no way to tell.

      2nd Run
      - I used my DeathByCaptcha account and no proxies. I created a brand new account and let it run. I assumed the account creation went well. The worst part about the program is there is no tracking of what accounts have been created or anything. I then submitted the bookmark to the bookmarking sites (which I had no idea if it would actually work or not)...came back with 450 bookmarks or so. Not too bad.

      3rd Run - I ran it again on the same account, submitted a different bookmark, again, not using any proxies. This time it didn't have as much success, only returned around 300 or so bookmarks.

      4th Run - I ran it again, same account, submitted a different bookmark. Again, no proxies. This run only got me around 150 bookmarks.

      At this point, I could tell that I needed some proxies...did some searching around and found some free proxies.

      5th Run - Created a new account, and just let it run. This time I was using proxies and DeathByCaptcha. Took a lot longer this time around to create the accounts, and I had to keep rotating in proxies since the free ones I found kept dying. Not sure how many accounts it actually successfully created. Went ahead and submitted the bookmark, and again, it took a lot longer than before (probably due to the free proxies) and the program must've crashed 6 or 7 times during the course of the run. Wasn't so bad though, since it would start up again where it left off. In this run, I got around 250+ bookmarks. Not too bad, but it took a couple hours to do so.

      A few notes/changes I would like to see:

      • I'd like to know if my accounts were successfully created and where. There needs to be some kind of account management system. Otherwise you're taking a shot in the dark and hoping it works
      • I'd like to be able to switch between accounts. As it stands now, you have to create a new account with each run? I'm kind of confused on this point, can we used accounts we previously created and do bookmarking runs with it? There seems to be no account management.
      • You will need to use an automatic captcha bypass service, and this program will burn through your captcha credits. In the first few runs, I think I used over 3,000 captchas between creating accounts and doing the bookmarking.
      • You'll need to get private proxies for this. They're faster and more reliable than the free ones I was using. At the very least, get some shared proxies.

      All in all, DTA is brand new, so of course it has some kinks to work out. I'd like to see some sort of account management, and maybe an integrated OCR for automatically solving captchas.

        I also facing the problem that DTA is burning a lot of my DeathByCaptcha account credits. Dont know why it using 3-4k captcha credits for only 500 social bookmarking sites only.

          Great question, I'll have to check my account. Have you sent in a support ticket about this? Curious to see what they say.

          I got an answer about the account creation. You don't need to make a new account. Say you created three accounts. It will rotate between those three accounts. Although I agree I would like to see some sort of account list, as well as a list of the bookmarking sites they submit to. You do get a list of submissions under the history tab so you can see where they went.

          I'll have to check the captcha. You can grab private proxies for about 7 bucks a month over at proxy bonanza.

          Just sign up copy your proxy list they give you and drop them in, pretty easy, and saves alot of time

            I am confuse here. How do you create multiple accounts because it only allow to enter 1 email account for account creation?

            Can you explain more detail?

            Thanks

              When you first sign on to the application there is a generate account button.
              You have to create a NEW email account for each one you create. So when you sign in just hit generate account and type in the new email address you created and it will give you a new account.

            Checked my death by captcha account. I did suck up alot of my credits, and there was quite a few that failed. I put in a support ticket as to why it is using so many. I'll post back here when I get an update.

          I purchased Digi Traffic Accelerator and I was also wondering about why it was burning through so many captchas credits so I asked support and they told me that website are often unreliable so they have built in over 1,500 sites into their data base so that it makes sure it creates enough accounts to get your 500 backlinks each time you post a bookmark.

          They also said "DTA has to solve a captcha for you whenever it creates a new account or posts a bookmarks, so you should expect to see it use up to 2000 credits each time you create accounts and up to 1000 credits each time you post bookmarks.
          If signup or submission fails because the captcha answer was wrong DTA will report the incorrect answer to your captcha breaking service and then try again".


          I didn`t know that there was a captcha to be solved every time you bookmarked. I am pleased about how it creates the bookmarks though and that there is no limit - thats a biggie. Will have to report back in about a week. I was trying to use Bulkping but it doesn`t seem to like to ping a bunch of links at once and crashes and I don`t want to pay for yet another service - this stuff can add up!

            I`m here to report back. I`m still happy with this software and in 5 days after using Digi Traffic Accelerator I went from page 6 to page 1 position #3, so I believe its working well.

              I have been testing it for the past three days, and so far it is working well but:

              1. It has been crashing on me 60% of the time and does not finish the cycle. It's nice that it restarts from where it left off and usually finishes from there, but that is still very annoying. I have talked with support, and I hope this is resolved soon. The way the tool works this is not a deal breaker, just annoying.

              2. It goes through a lot of captcha's, which, in my opinion, is worth it but be prepared to use up a lot.

              3. It goes through a lot of proxies. I was initially finding the first run would be really good but then only about 300 links being created after that and less each run. I create new accounts frequently but what fixed it was constantly adding fresh proxies.

              Overall, it's pretty good. I have submitted a few ideas that I hope they listen to and in general, other than the crashing, I think it is a decent tool for the price. It is certainly a good compliment to other promotion strategies.

                1. I certainly get more then 50... unlike theantihype suggested but as I said you need to use fresh proxies. If i dont update with fresh proxies everyday the results are brutal.

                2. It is more then just pligg, but bottom line is it is bookmarking sites and it all comes down to how you look at this. Using scrapebox I find a few of the sites are not indexed in google but over 95% are. I am referring to actual root domains here, not pages with my links on it.

                3. In reference to my above issue with crashing, it was actaully my fault. Appears the new pc i had it running on had a memory issue. Now that is fixed i ran it twice and worked 100% each time.

    Also..

    Does anyone know where I can buy some good private proxies...without a monthly subscription? I'd like to buy them outright. Thanks.

      This email was just sent out from digi traffic about multiple account creation

      "If there's one question that's come up more often than anything else in the DTA support, it's this:

      Do I have to create new accounts every time I post a bookmark?


      The short answer is no - DTA saves all the accounts you create in its database and picks a random account for every run. So you can create new accounts, but you don't need to.


      Basically, this is our bad - the details don't appear when you re-open DTA, and we didn't explain that properly in the manual. But rest assured - your details are saved."

      I went into the email address that I used and wanted to make poeple aware of this. Not a big deal but good to know.

      They try to activate as many bookmarking sites as possible but they cant get them all. In my gmail account a folder was created that said DTA or somrthing like that which holds a list of bookmarks that have been activated.

      THe ones that aren't in this folder and are in your inbox you need to click the activation link manually. Not a big deal, just something to be aware of. But it shows you all the sites you are registered with for future reference if you need it.No idea where to buy proxies out right.

        Interesting...I wonder if there's a way we can go into the database and delete accounts if we want. Because it seems like there would be a lot of fails if the account got deleted, etc.

            UPDATE:

            Did 3 more runs today (for clients), and had some pretty good results. I didn't create any new accounts (I have a hunch that account creation is what burns through my captcha credits).

            First run brought in ~150+ bookmarks, second run brought in ~250 bookmarks, and I didn't use any proxies on those runs. On my third run, I dumped in a whole bunch of proxies (from a free proxy provider). The third run was slightly slower, but I'm not sure if that was due to my proxies or because DeathByCaptcha was at it's peak time (3pm-6pm), or what. However, it created a whopping 398 bookmarks.

            A few notes:

            • You're going to NEED proxies, every run I've done seems to work better with some proxies in it. I've been using this site - Free Proxy List Every 30 Minutes! which gives a free proxy list every 30 minutes, and I only use the anonymous ones.
            • If the program continues to work like it did in my 3rd run, then the $20/month cost is trivial...the real cost is going to be in captcha credits (and private proxies if you feel you need them).

            A few program suggestions:

            • Again, let us see what accounts have been created and where. At this point I have no idea how successful account creation went, or if my accounts still exist at some social bookmarking sites.
            • Let us control how many bookmarks we want to create. I don't like the idea of not being able to control how many I want to do, because it can burn a hole in my pocket from captcha credits.
            I'll report back in a few days, and decide if I want to continue with this program or if I'll cancel after the trial..this program has the potential to be a complete gamechanger (if there were no captchas) and deadly for anyone that uses it!

              Thanks DrewG for the link to free proxies. I have been trying to find some all week but I keep hearing not so good things about free ones so I will give this a shot.

              First run brought in ~150+ bookmarks, second run brought in ~250 bookmarks, and I didn't use any proxies on those runs. On my third run, I dumped in a whole bunch of proxies (from a free proxy provider). The third run was slightly slower, but I'm not sure if that was due to my proxies or because DeathByCaptcha was at it's peak time (3pm-6pm), or what. However, it created a whopping 398 bookmarks.

              A few notes:

              • You're going to NEED proxies, every run I've done seems to work better with some proxies in it. I've been using this site - Free Proxy List Every 30 Minutes! which gives a free proxy list every 30 minutes, and I only use the anonymous ones.
              • If the program continues to work like it did in my 3rd run, then the $20/month cost is trivial...the real cost is going to be in captcha credits (and private proxies if you feel you need them).

              A few program suggestions:

              • Again, let us see what accounts have been created and where. At this point I have no idea how successful account creation went, or if my accounts still exist at some social bookmarking sites.
              • Let us control how many bookmarks we want to create. I don't like the idea of not being able to control how many I want to do, because it can burn a hole in my pocket from captcha credits.
              I'll report back in a few days, and decide if I want to continue with this program or if I'll cancel after the trial..this program has the potential to be a complete gamechanger (if there were no captchas) and deadly for anyone that uses it!
              I tried the anonymous proxies and DTA said they were all inactive.

    Ya the captcha needs to be fixed.
    I HAD the latest version, when i started the tool.
    CAPTCHAs correctly solved:Today:2908
    This was one on use of the tool. Not even sure who many links it created.

    THIS IS INSANE.

    I am using Digi Traffic Accelerator version 1.0.4
    Found this in a log file.

    I also only got 83 links created.
    According to the log file 168 emails were created.

    Not sure i will keep it at this rate.

    I did a manual update and there was an update, but that used up all my captcha's not sure ill get more at this time.

    Lets hope this gets better, seems more like BETA software to me at this time.

    I can echo what was said earlier ... it worked well functionally, nicely set-up, but with the additional cost of HMA (convenient proxy service) and burning through a LOT of captchas (the major expense) the total cost per month was looking too high for me, "just" for social bookmarks.

    I've no doubt they'd be useful but I'd rather invest that same figure in higher quality links. I cancelled the trial after 4 days, too soon to see any impact (at least, I didn't see any).

    Used it, amongst hundreds of other push-button tools.

    PROS:
    Clean and easy to use interface.

    CONS:
    Creates 50 links at once, not the 500 advertised. Took over a week to get up to the 500 level.

      BMD is much more hands-on and complex - you know all of the sites you're submitting to, you know all of the accounts you have. You can view what sites BMD is submitting to and when. You can add your own list of Scuttle/Pligg sites into BMD. However, BMD does not give you a report at the URL level like DTA does. It's a one-time fee for BMD.

      Digi Traffic Accelerator is much simpler...create accounts, submit your bookmarks, view report. Really easy. It is, however, a monthly fee.

      You'll also have additional captcha credit costs with both..however, Captcha Sniper is supposedly going to be integrated into BMD soon...

      I had really poor results with BMD - from account creation to bookmarks sticking AND I used HMA (proxies). BMD also froze on my computer quite a few times (before I gave up with it)

      This, on the other hand, worked like a dream. Easily created 380 - just under 500 bookmarks with each run. Account creation was good. It was fast. It didn't hog the memory on my computer. It occasionally seemed like it had hung, but when I restarted the program the % of progress was actually higher, so it hadn't stopped (and it may have been the captcha service that was causing the hold up). I always used HMA with it - 1 IP per run, clear the cache in between. And I noticed an increase in adsense on the days and the sites that I did a run. I would use it more often if it didn't burn through so many captchas (that is the real cost - the results given, about 1000 captchas per bookmark run, match my experience).

      Bottom line with bookmarking like so many things - you cannot rely soley on 1 type of backlink. I think this is a great tool for increasing exposure. Use it in conjunction with others like linkclaw. And its great to use on pages that don't normally get links.

      Damn that captcha sniper looks good. That would be ideal if it worked with digi accelerator

      I had a similar issue, however I thought their CS was super fast and awesome. The one thing I have an issue with regarding their CS is they solve a problem however do nothing to heighten the customer experience.
      I have about 200 backlinks in total from DTA - didn't know the proxies were off and the software. I think Auto Traffic Buddy is much more superior and a higher value (the 50 a month version).

      I don`t know if this will help you but my backlinks started diminishing when I Didn`t create any new accounts and decided to see how far the 3 I had created would take me. They didn`t start diminishing till about my 4th set of backlinks but even then got over 100. They did say this would happen if you used the same accounts for very long.

    Did another full run today:

    Added a whole bunch of new proxies, and ran it at 1:38 PM (more on this later).

    Created 438 social bookmarks.

    I recommend rotating out your proxies every once in a while, fresh proxies are always good.

    Also, I try to do my bookmarking runs outside of the 3-6pm window, reason being, is because DeathbyCaptcha is typically overloaded between 3-6 and the process is slow and the program doesn't create as many backlinks in this period.

        I use Death by Captcha. And I haven't sen the problems of massive captcha overuse that others talk about. I suspect that is related to crappy proxies. Since i am using a VPN, not a problem.

        By the way, for me, even though the software seems to have locked up when creating accounts, it is usually not, the interface is just not showing you what it is doing. Usually, once I restart it, it has gotten much more done than it shows.

        I have about 12-15 accounts or so.

          I got DTA a bout a week ago, got busy so i just now started using it, missed out on cancelling on the trial, but for $20 I suppose it is worth some links I can get from it for the next month. Not sure if I will cancel the first month will determine that.

          Here's my results for the last two days:

          Day 1- I used some free proxies and death by capcha.
          created 52 links.

          I did read after that you should wait at least a half hour after creating accounts then submit bookmark, I did not do that so not sure if that affected my results.

          Day 2- created another account and will wait until day three to bookmark , just in case, so no bookmarks today, I will report tomorrow the results of day 2 accounts.

          My death by capch account reports this:

          Performance level is based on how many CAPTCHAs uploaded have been marked as incorrectly solved.

          i am not sure what these really mean but if i am reading it correct it did 1778 correct and 1138 incorrect for a total of 2916 which is equal to 60.97% success rate as reported by them as 61%.

          So it is using the capchas FAST! I will see how many links the next set of bookmarks will do and i will also put new free proxies in and see what it does.

            I waited 2 days then i did another post, here's the results:

            It created 273 backlinks this time with a different URL , so at least it is more that the 50 I was getting before. This is with two accounts created and a list of 26 free proxies. The first two times i used only two free proxies so I am not sure if that was my problem.

            Death by captcha results:

            CAPTCHAs correctly solved:
            Today:

            CAPTCHAs reported as incorrect:
            Today:
            136

            So it used 585 captchas, since it only recorded 273 links not sure what is going on with the extra used captchas , it would be nice if this gave an account of what was going on. I checked a handful of the URLs and they were all there. I guess not too bad for results , the captchas are cheap so it seems to be doing ok, i am monitoring the traffic to those two sites with google analytics so i will see if there are any increases in traffic. I plan on doing all the page URLs on those two sites , but will do them one a day and see how it goes with traffic and ranking.

            I am using Market Samuri to record the rankings so I will be able to see if this helps any.

              Hey everyone, please leave some feedback as to how you're bookmarking:

              1) Are you just writing a description on DTA and adding a long-tail keyword link directly to your site?

              Or are you doing as Andy suggested and:

              2) writing lenses on Squidoo for example and using DTA to link to those authority sites to siphon out your links?

          Casey,

          Would you mind sharing the name or company providing your VPN? I have heard of Hide My Ass, Strong VPN, and TorVPN, but I have never used VPNs for masking IP and don't know who is reliable.

          As for DTA, I find that it runs very well, but for me it delivers far fewer than 500 bookmarks. The most I've gotten is around 360 using free proxies. I'm trying a run with anonymous proxies to see if that makes a difference.

            I tried out the trial as I've been doing lots of tests with these sort of sites and I've found they are pretty effective.

            I've been using BMD and after a bit of a learning curve I can get roughly 1000 bookmarks from each run - after importing from various lists. But more importantly I get a positive rankings boost about 90% of the time. But it does take some effort and I thought this might be easier.

            I had some initial problems with Digi Traffic accelerator - but the support was responsive and helpful. My issue was apparently due to the slow response of decaptcher.com - but I didn't retry as they said to recreate all my accounts (and I couldn't be bothered to be honest)

            I think it may be a decent application and I'm sure Andy and co will do a good job. I didn't see enough with the problems I had to continue trial - but I will be keeping an eye on this as I think it has potential to be quicker and easier than BMD (but perhaps not as powerful)

            Anyway hope this helps someone......

      You may have an issue with your software suggest you contact their help desk as every account I create auto confirms without any issues and I think I have 6 right now.

      hope this helps

    Guys, If you are serious about getting into SEO. Then you need all type of website. Some people think that you can't get in the first page with this. Well your right but you can't get iun the first page of google with only Web 2.0. This is not natural. If you want to get first page of google the bets ways is to get link diversity. the combination of all sort of link pointing back to your website will result in higher ranking. so certainly this is the best bookmarking tools that you can get. only that will not put you in the game of SEO. but, including this tool with other SEO tool then you got a winning position in the SEO battle!

    Hope that helped a few of you guys!

    After Google-ing it: I'd recommend you to concentrate on natural, organic traffic and reliable PPC. There are lots of products like this and most of them are just sending you robots.

    I'd stick with new age SEO, SM, YouTube marketing and PPC, including Facebook ads.
    Programs promising traffic either send fake traffic (robots) or they direct traffic to you from long-shut-down sites or levitating domains...

      Hey thought I would put my opinion in here too. I have been using DTA for over a year and have seen great success with it - however I rarely use it for my websites, but it reacts very well to Video SEO which is still unaffected by the zoo animals, another point worth mentioning is link diversity is a must for websites.

      I use a totally private site network that is my own - I have ranked sites that have no ad inks - just links to my other sites and I rotate them regularly, they are on different servers and therefore appear pretty inconspicuous.

      Every time I rank a site then I use my existing sites to grow the new sites PR with my own backlinks.

      This IMHO is the best way to get your own links - grow your own Lol

      PS DTA is changing this week to DTG (Digi Traffic Generator) now it can post to article sites too, and they are still high page rank sites despite Panda.

    I bought it because of the trial, and tested it during the last 3 days.

    I am not impressed...

    First run with a normal email address 610 accounts created.

    Next day, 77 accounts with a Gmail - then I actually realized that my Death By Captcha account was banned! (Great, down the drain with a balance of $50)

    The I tried decpatcher - and got about 25 errors saying that decaptcher timed out...

    I send their suppor at mail, and got a response today that they had updated the software.

    Great, article publishing chrashed three times with no action, bookmarking crashed two times and finally started.

    Same stunt, again a error code from the captcha service because of time out. Result: 17 links posted (on a total of 987 accounts).

    So I rushed to my PayPal account and cancelled the subscription, I had my "fun" :-)
