I used to be hot at SEO back in the day, but I ended up stepping away from IM for 2 years. I went to prison for 1 year (computer hacking charages, nothing major) and then I spent the year or so that I've been out setting up offers on affiliate networks and generating revenue that way.

All is well, but recently I've been getting back into SEO as I did enjoy it. I noticed I still have the following tools at my disposal from back when I purchased them 2 years ago. Are they still relevant today?

- XRumer
- SENuke (Lifetime License)
- Scrapebox

Some honest opinions please.

    Those tools are only going to tank your rankings.

    Instead focus on contextual links, authority sites, unique content, relevance and low OBL.

    Xrumer is relevant. By the way they will have a big update pretty soon (in a week or so) - it will be able to post in much more types of forums.

    Just blogged about this yesterday. The problem with software is it creates new pages. New pages take forever to get indexed and have ZERO PageRank. You're better of using services that offer high PR link packages. Software is only good for super blackhat churn and burn, and even then you have to know what you're doing.

    Those are just tools man. It's how you use em.

    Like someone else said, they are great for "churn and burn" sites that are very profitable.

    If you make tweaks to them (say Senuke), you can teach the software to post to almost any site, though most lazy people won't do this.
