Programs That Automate SEO Tasks - Are They ALL Junk?

I've tried many popular SEO programs that promise to automate your tasks and multiply your income.

I've tried out SE Nuke (one of the most recent "must have" programs) for the limited free trial, and while the software SEEMS extremely powerful, I haven't had enough time to see results -- but more importantly, I have been very disappointed by any automated service I have ever used for SEO.

This includes article submission services, directory submission services, link building services, automated book-marking, etc.

My sites generate money every day, so I'm not some newbie trying to figure this out, but I really want to go to the next level. So I keep trying different services and software.

Google really doesn't seem to CARE how many backlinks you blast all over the internet. (Which SE Nuke does in a massive way.) They don't seem to count them. And nothing happens with your search engine results.

I'd be glad to pay for services that actually work. But can anyone tell me that they are using software to automate their SEO tasks, and it has made a significant impact on their profits?

Very curious about this...

Thanks!

Dean

    When it comes down to it, being built by hand manually is always gonna out due any SEO automation software. I would outsource the linkbuilding, and other SEO tasks to an experienced company. Obviously it will cost more, but you will be getting higher quality results, IMO.

      There's no real way I could see - as a former tester of SENuke and other backlink and automation programs as well ... that I could have built 1500+ backlinks to 3 domains simultaneously - other than thru leveraging automation tool and time saving site lists.

      Totally disagree that proper automation - used properly - cant beat doing it by hand.

      In fact - automation will SMOKE it ...

    I totally agree!

    One of the mistakes I was making before though was using SENUKE to make a bunch of backlinks, but then I never did anything to make sure those links got indexed.

    You have to get backlinks to your backlinks!

    Plus, it takes a month or two (in most cases) to really see the results of any backlinking efforts. The thing is that by then, most people have given up and moved on to something else. Then they blame the automation for not working.

    Everything I do I try to automate it as much as possible.

    Just because its done by hand doesn't necessarily mean its higher quality - Google can't tell if a social bookmark has been submitted by hand or if its been automated.

    However, overdoing automation can actually harm you. So use the power wisely..

    Not all automated programs are dump but most of them are.

    But still I only recommend and suggest everyone to do their submissions manually rather make the use of such automated tools. Manual submissions ensure that you are submitting sites to the proper category and also with the proper information and details, which cannot be ensured by automated softwares.

    You should use the program properly to get good results. You might made some mistakes causing some problems on getting good traffic.

    Hey Dean,

    I think you are quite right here...

    In my experience... and from what I've learned from some SEO veterans... for Google these days "less seems to be more"! Not that fast linkbuilding is necessarily BAD, it can work too...

    But if you build the right kind of links in a "natural" way, sometimes you can get great results by building just 2-3 links a WEEK! No joke. I think it comes down to linking with meticulously selected anchor texts that are a VARIATION of your main keywords and not 100% identical anchor texts.

    If you link 150 times with the anchor text "blue widget review"...

    Google will think something smells funky...

    But if you go for a variation of these:

    "blue widget review"
    "review of blue widget"
    "blue widget feedback"
    "click here for a blue widget review"
    "click here"

    etc..

    That works great IMO.

    Sorry, got a bit off-topic here, but...

    Automation tools can save you A LOT of time building links for example... if you just know how to get the best out of it.

    Some of my favorites... LinkVana :-)

    Don't use SENuke etc.

      Why LinkVana and not SeNuke?

        It's a different concept all together.

        LinkVana is a protected blog network and has very strict rules as to what type of content can be published there, so it is of high quality and works long term.

        But please keep in mind... LV is not a tool to rank your website for ONE keyword only. It is a tool to help you rank for many related keywords. Keyword research is crucial and also a variety of links coming from many different sources too. This is an addition. I would recommend it if you are already seeing some good results with SEO and want to boost them. I wouldn't say its best if you are just starting to promote a brand new site and are expecting instant results. LV is part of a long-term strategy.
