Backlink - automated software

Hi, I'm a webmaster that has a highly ranked site. Over the years, we've relied on good content and white hat techniques to get where we are. After seeing the success of a friend of mine who uses backlink software, I'm now considering that as another tool.

I've always shied away from automated link builders as I considered them unethical and was concerned that Google may penalize my site. But if I really wanted a site to rank poorly, I could just use this software on my competitors.

So the question is: is it worth giving it a shot to see if it can help with the SERPs?

Can you provide more information on the features offered with the software you are describing? We need to know more specifically what it does.

I think using softwares to use link building may harm our search engine rankings. Heard many guys saying their sites became sandboxed in google for this.. I'm not sure though!

You can use software that aids in publishing and organizing of data. Just make sure its editor based. You want to stay away from software that sends unsolicited email on your behalf or automatically generates links (also called full duplex linking).

But its perfectly ok to use software to manage the process of databasing, organizing, categorizing, and checking the status of links.

I was thinking of a software that uses proxies to get memberships on dofollow sites, spins articles 50 different ways, creates accounts from video websites, posts videos and spins them too, etc.

I know someone using it and along with his other SEO measures, is #2, #3 for all his keywords.

Quite often link building software is run by a company that owns the sites you will be submitting to, i.e., a Network, which is very easy for Google to spot. So check the whois of sites that receive the links, if you can.

I have a client who has a competitor who Google bombs my client with about 1000 junk links every fall. My client has such a clean link building history that is hasn't bothered his rank and in fact I think it boosted it up a little bit.

So to be clear, Site B tries to hurt Site A's rankings by creating thousands of spammy links to Site A.

I thought that was not even going to be an issue? I thought that Matt Cutts / google has said that you can't hurt a competitor's ranking by linking to them.

They changed the official wording to say there is ALMOST nothing you can do to hurt another site's rankings a way back.

Using some software may get you banned if you really really are an idiot. Otherwise they will only help you. Think about Xrumer. That software can burst your website with 10.000 backlinks every day, by posting into forums, blogs and so on. If that would get you banned, every webmaster would use it to knock out their competition. So it's safe, until a point.
