Do you use any software to automate your SEO work?

And what works after the updates?

    After the update, I would try to stay away from automated software. Anything used would be a short term view and will get probably get slapped sometime in the future. As Google's updates are coming faster and faster, it'll just end up a game of cat and mouse.

    I assume you are referring to off-site SEO and more particularly the automation of back links. If so, forget it and just try for natural linking from associated sites with some page rank value.

    I am talking about building backlinks offsite.

    I (honestly) don't have the time to manually build backlinks. If I spend the time required to do that, I would have far less time to write content and write emails and so on.

      Then pick one and outsource the other to somebody competent.

      Also, your content creation CAN be part of link building. The two aren't exclusive. If you can easily churn out good content, then link building will be easy.

      If you create good content, all you need to do is learn how to market it and most of the links will come on their own. For the other links, you'll need to beg, borrow and buy -- smartly with a natural appearance.

      If you don't have time then you can hire someone who can build links for you as after penguin update its not advisable thing to build links via automated process.

    Magic Submitter is what I use. If you have content that helps your target, and you know how to leverage the software without spamming the hell out of things, you'l be fine. This type of software was never intended to be a one click wonder. It was only intended to take the knowledge you posses and enable you to work faster.

      Seriously? But the backlinking service you're offering in your signature seem to be done using some automated software that you're warning people against :confused::confused:

        Supervised, non-automated link building is the ONLY way to go these days.
        I believe that acquiring backlinks in bulks will eventually die off.

        Now, when it comes to software, I use SEO Spyglass , because it's the only one that is a good enough combination of efficiency and the ability to control link building for me.

        So your saying you build 10,000 tier 2 blog comment backlinks manually?

        I use magic submitter and so far so good, obviously time will tell! I spent a couple of days researching the software, playing around with it and importing a good selection of sites.

        From my experience I honestly believe that software is still beneficial if you use it wisely.

          Didn't you hear? Google can't tell the difference between one spammy Web 2 that was built automated and another that was built manually or "carefully" spaced out or built with automation, but done "properly" or an actual web2.0 blog or site that has naturally attracted links and social shares.

          Obviously these things still work, but it seems that those still buying them are not aware of rampage Google has been on these last few months. They are not going work anymore, and may do more damage than good. The software sellers and forum brokers are soaking up the last of it, before they move onto the next cheap, no effort link scheme.

    I outsource most of my backlinking to guys I know that do the job well... the only tool I use is Article Marketing Robot to backlink my backlinks (and backlinksindexer to index them). Blog comments are done manually on high pr pages.

    Aside from all the wonderful tools and lectures, just make sure you have what natural selection demands in this arena, Unique Popular Content and Manual.

    Now gonna write some more of those and micromanage my popular links. It's just time consuming but hey ... I think it would be worth the effort.

    After the penguin update I am not using now a software to promote a business website. I am now using the proper method of promotion such as manual or white hat method in posting profile back links for better ranking and look natural in Google;s eye.

    Funny, I've managed to rank clients using Magic Submitter, a solid plan, relaxed linking schedule, quality content and plain common sense. Submission tools do work you just have to know what you're doing and always be on the lookout for solid link opportunities.

    It is. It all starts with your content, and taking every opportunity to really learn the software and take part in the trainings and strategy sessions.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with automation in and of itself. If you scrapebox blast your site with 1,000,000 comments then that is a huge problem, however if you do just a few (50) here and there then you'll probably see some positive results if you scrape a good list.
