      What if I can automate your manual work ? This leaves you way behind. If we would talk about public tools,then you can say yes,these days you can get things done better doing manual links + if doing SEO for big budget company you must deliver quality links which tools cant do

    Manual is a must. But automation is a must as well, you need equal parts. One alone cannot rely on all manual if they want faster ROI. Manual for Teir 1, 50/50 Teir 2, the rest automation.

    Of course manually SEO. IF you use any bot, Google will stop indexing your page.

    Tier 2 and 3, if you know about this way, use software.. if you are doing web 2.0, blog positing, article directories than highly recommend use your hands without giving access to your robots..

        Tier 1 : Points to your money site. Should be highest-quality content
        Tier2: Points to tier 1 links. The goal is to get tier one links indexed and perhaps some PR
        Tier3: points to tier 2. You mainly just want to get tier 2 indexed.

        FYI, to get any meaningful link juice, its simply impossible to build an adequate 2nd and third tier without automation. Sure, you can build 100 manual tier1 links. Can you manually build 1,000 tier 2 links to those? 100,000 tier 3? I think not.

      It's not that manual is better. If you are doing the same
      things as that auto-crapola, how is that better?

      If your auto-whatever is somehow doing good stuff,
      and in less time, then yes, it's more valuable as it
      takes less time.

      It's what gets done, not whether it's manual or auto.

      In fact, many times I like to think that my manual is
      on auto, and my auto is doing manual.

      1,000 auto shtuff is just as lousy as 1,000 manual stuff.

      Check that. The 1,000 manual shtuff is lousier, as you
      just wasted your time.

      Someone posted 50+ blogs to spam. So, you spam those 50
      blogs, manually, that's worth the same as 1,000 auto spammed.

      Absolutely nothing.

    What you do in essence is what is important, not whether it is automated or not.

    If you build very crappy and shi**y backlinks in an automated way, you won't get anywhere that's for sure.

    If you build such backlinks manually, the results will be the same.

    If you build high-quality backlinks manually, the results will be good.

    If you can automate high-quality backlink creation, it's even better, because you will get the good results with much less effort and time spent doing the work.

    First of you all you need to have a good strategy or backlinking structure. You need do manual backlinks for some and automated for some. Also, high quality backlinks matters the most. Don't waste your time getting thousands of crappy backlinks.

    Use 2 or 3-tier structure for creating your backlinks.

    Right now with the way Google is any automated link building is risky.

    I used to do a lot of linkbuilding with article networks, xrumer, senuke etc...

    I have cancelled all my memberships now and I am using that money on building extra content for my sites and building links for the purposes of traffic.

    There are lots of ways to get traffic without organic search results. Concentrate on them and buildcontent and you will get some seo rankings anyway.

    When the dust settles I will start more aggressive seo again once I know what is safe.

      I prefer to do my SEO work manually but honestly there are right and wrong ways to do it whether you're doing it 'manually' or 'automatically'.

      I run a service where people can submit guest posts to other sites and honestly, some of the guest posts that are written 'manually' (not purchased from a writing service) are just as bad as the worst stuff you can spin or buy.

      Running that business has given me a lot of insight into how a lot of people are doing SEO. Honestly, a lot of people need to get a lot better at providing value. People are pretty messy even if they are doing things manually.

    It's interesting how people think. We believe that if we do some work manually, that would give us better results. In some cases, that is true - but because we did it better and not because we did it manually! But that isn't true in many other cases - if software is able to do the same thing as good as we would do it or even better and we still want to do it manually, then we are wasting our time, which is the same as if we were throwing money away. We only have limited time available for our business and we need to make sure that we use it wisely.

      The reality is that Google can't tell the difference between a manual link and a automated one all they can do is look at the entire link profile and run it through an algorithm to determine if it's natural looking. You could build a bunch of manual links that when passed through the algorithm throw up red flags because the anchor text, sources and timing of the links don't appear natural. Meanwhile with good software and an understanding of how the algorithm works all those red flags could easily be avoided.

        Well said, thats what theory I too believe if you have reach to any good seo software for eg and you build high pr lik and tiered links it may help your website look natural. So its not software which end up with spam it is the user/user's plan who use it correctly or not... Building 1000s links even manually per day = SPAM DEATH of site.

          The speed at which your link profile grows is also a red flag to Google if your site starts getting tons of links at a time this is a bad thing in Google's eyes. It must appear that other websites are really linking to your site because of quality content. Software can actually help with this because links can be randomly drip fed so that they appear more natural. When doing manual links it is only natural to set up certain methods to get the most out of what you're doing but this could also lead to patterns that are easily recognized by Google as manipulative.

      For all those people who keep insisting that manual is good, show me a proof from Matt Cutts (or any Google's documentation) saying that "We want you to manually backlink to your main sites".

      Manual or automatic, it's still considered BLACKHAT to Google. As long as you do the backlinks, it's blackhat.

      All I know from Google is that they want natural backlinks from users who wants to link to great content.

      So get your facts right.

    Google is trying to get rid of crappy spammy websites, so websites that are highly resistant to automation are less likely to be full of spammy nonsense, and therefore less likely to get penalized, if you can use automated submission on a website, it is likely to be full of garbage, and going manual on it probably won't make a difference.

    Better use both manual as well as automaton tool. Use manual link building for 1st tier link and you can use automaton tool to get 2nd and 3rd tier links. But don't do anything blindly, it may harm at the end. Use automaton tool, but make sure it does make sense.

    So my question is Manually SEO work Important or use of software
    I half suspect that your post was created largely to create visibility for your own SEO service but I can certainly give you my take on it as I am also in the SEO industry and can look at it from the other side than the manual work that you do.

    Personally I firmly believe that you need manual Seo as well as software or tech-based Seo. The simple fact of the matter is that manually you will never create enough of the lower quality links that really most top websites are expected to acquire alongside the obvious high PR links which are essential for ranking.

    The essence of backlinking since the various penguin updates has been variety and lots of it. This should not just mean in the anchor text which you use which should be really varied with a lower percentage of money keywords or you can expect a slap BUT it also means in the type of website that you have backlinking towards your own. By having ONLY high PR links pointing back to your website you can easily be spotted as a "backlinks manipulator" just the same as you can if you only have thousands of low quality forum backlinks.

    This is also true of ALL your backlinks being DOFOLLOW - there should definitely be a fair sprinkling of NOFOLLOW links as well.

    The Answer to Your Question Therefore Is "Mix it up!"

    I created and run the only truly automatic website backlinking system (3 years and still going strong!) We provide HIGH PR links (ALL done manually by my own staff) every month on complete autopilot (for the Client). These are now posted from UNIQUE IP addresses. When you're sick of hours creating backlinks AND STILL getting nowhere consider this hands free service. (WF Coupon code JH1960) Website | WF Thread | Support Desk

    The key is simulating popularity.

    How would you tell someone a site is worth checking out?

    Simulate that over and over, as naturally as possible.
