Link Building Software 2012 Reviews | Link Building Tools | Link Building Services


Link building software reviews are actually fun for me to write. Being an SEO professional, I enjoy working with all of the various link building tools and SEO software. I use each of the link building software reviewed here more or less all the time. I don't use every one of them for every project, but I use them all and they all have good points. I guess the main benefit is that they make it quite easy and quick to rank my sites and my client's sites. 

Bookmarking Demon 

  Bookmarking Demon is the software I have been using for years to get my social bookmarking links. This software has stood the test of time and is part of the SEO guy's tool chest. There are other link building programs that are similar to BMD but none are as sophisticated and well developed as bookmarking demon. 


 You can read a full review of bookmarking demon if you have the time, but in a nutshell, I like this software for a few reasons. One reason is the sophistication of the software and the other reason is the fact that social bookmarking links are an essential part of any SEO campaign. We need them, period. So this is my preferred way of getting social bookmarking links. My preference has a lot to do with the fact that I've watched this software develop for the last 5 years. I was part of a forum that had a group of marketers that used this software daily for all kinds of things. Over the years as users contributed valuable feedback, Edwin has listened to his customers and continues to constantly tweak this software (a number of times there have been very major upgrades) making it better and better. 

This software randomizes your titles, descriptions, login names and passwords - everything. It's fast because it's multi-threaded, it gets me huge amounts of anchored links from major authority sites, you can add your own lists of pligg sites, bookmarking sites, scuttle sites, scuttle plus sites - it's expandable.


Xrumer - Extreme Backlinks

Another time tested software. This one is not cheap and there's a reason for that: it works extremely. It's easy to underestimate the versatility and sheer power of this SEO software. Some people use it for direct marketing and spew their full blown ads out all over the entire internet. Others use it to rank for buy viagra. Still, others use it to get 2nd and 3rd tier links to their Senuke X web2.0 profile pages and social network sites. I really like the results I'm getting using Xrumer to spray thousands of links to my web2.0 link wheels. It's amazing what happens when you toss 50,000 backlinks at a few aged web2.0 pages that are link wheeled together. 





You can check out my Xrumer review if you like, for a more in depth view. Xrumer is expensive at over $500 and $10 a month for services. Yes, you have to pay a monthly fee now to use Xrumer. I don't like this one bit but that's how it is. Also, if you really want to open this nasty SEO software up, you really should run in on a dedicated server. That'll run you $300 a month if you use bulletproof hosting. I offer xrumer services but you'll have to read about it in the review. This will rank you for any keyword in the world. 


Scrapebox - Compact and Efficient Link Building Software

Scrapebox is a terrific link building program. It's kind of like Xrumer but much easier to use and more intuitive in my opinion. This doesn't quite have the muscle that Xrumer has but it has way more than enough to be dangerous. In fact, I use this software more than I use Xrumer nowadays. I like it because it's quick and easy to use.  I love feeding large lists of auto-approve blogs into Scrapebox and letting it just pump tens of thousands of quick links out. This is great for reputation management. You know why? Because in reputation management we typically build lots of links to pages at yelp, superpages, yellowpages, manta and other very high authority sites. These kinds of sites can take a lot of abuse! You can send 50,000 links to a yelp page over night and it won't do the google dance! I love these pages. 


Ultimate Demon

Ultimate Demon is created by the maker of Bookmarking Demon. This is the first link building software like Senuke X that has come out as an alternative. I purchased the lifetime deal right away because Edwin's going to keep working on it over time. Ultimate Demon is very close to Senuke X right now, very close. In time it will be pretty much the same if not better. It's very inexpensive compared to Senuke X.


Senuke X costs $147 per month while Ultimate Demon costs around $350 for  a lifetime license or about $47 per month.  If you've been wishing you had enough money for Senuke X and you've been hoping for a cheaper but comparable alternative would arrive - this is it! You can read a full Ultimate Demon review and I may even do a video on it.


Senuke X

Senuke X is the upgrade from the previous software known simply as Senuke. This, along with Xrumer, is the most popular software for search engine optimization professionals and serious internet marketers. This is, at least for the time being, the king of link building software today. It's different than Xrumer in that it focuses on camouflaging and making everything look as white hat as possible. It actually ends up looking like greyhat but if you take your time and use real content, you can create white hat pages, blogs, web2.0 properties, social networks and forums.


You can read my full review of Senuke X and also check out the services I offer using this software. I plan on expanding the scope of the services I intend to offer with each of my link building tools.


Blog Comment Demon

I use Comment Demon to find lots of high pagerank links in all the niches I need. I love free links and that's exactly what we get from blogs. Blog links are very good compared to other kinds of free links, especially when they come from relevant pages. Blog Comment Demon scrapes for blogs, organizes the results according to any criteria you want and allows you to save tons of time doing blog commenting.

I have a full review and a video review of this popular link building software awaiting your reading or viewing pleasure. I found a dofollow PR7 page that allowed anchored links with this software. No one else had found that page. That proves to me that there are new PR7's being born with every google update!


SEO Elite - SEO Analysis Software - Get a Top Google Ranking

SEO Elite is an SEO analysis software that I first started using back about four years ago. This software is what actually taught me the truth about SEO. I analyzed hundred of top ranking sites in many, many niches just to see if I could find a pattern to their success. Well, I did discover that pattern as have many other people.



This software does more than just analyze sites. It can also act as your rank checking software. That's a really handy thing, especially once you get the hang of doing good SEO and you start to actually have to keep track of your rankings. This software is created by Brad Callen and it has stood the test of time like Bookmarking Demon and Xrumer and Senuke.  That's why these tools are still in my SEO tool chest - they work!  You can read my full review of SEO Elite here.



Keyword Elite -  Professional Keyword Analysis Software

Another product from Brad Callen that I think is very useful. This is the only tool I use for keyword research. It does so much more than just tell you the broad, phrase, exact, global and local searches. It allows you to manipulate the keywords in groups and many other ways. There are multiple projects you can open up and each has a different focus. This isn't a link building tool, but you can't build your links until you have a keyword list!


I have a keyword elite review that I posted some time back. Please read it if your interested in learning about how this SEO software can help you generate enormous keyword lists containing many fabulous longtails that no one else is even fighting for! That's the beauty of using a great keyword tool. You can uncover so many niche keywords and even emerging keywords from recent trends of all kinds. You can even scrape meta tags from other people's sites and get some really nice ideas.


Ultimate Demon Review | Ultimate Alternative to Senuke X | Ultimate Demon Blast

Ultimate Demon review, discussion and thoughts. This is quite a bit like Senuke X except that it's much more affordable. Everybody in the link building software, link building service and SEO community is quite happy to see a link building software comparable to Senuke X out on the market at such reasonable prices. Senuke X is $147 a month. Ultimate Demon costs $47 per month or about $350 for a lifetime license.

Get Ultimate Demon - Download Now before the price goes up!

Ultimate Demon

I grabbed the lifetime license as soon as I saw that it was being offered.

Now, what I like about this software is that it's like having all the link building tools you need wrapped up into one efficient tool. It's similar in layout to Edwin's other link building tools like Bookmarking Demon and Article Demon. 

Ultimate Demon has been created with efficiency in mind ie eliminating redundancies. The user can set up his link building campaigns with fewer clicks than ever before. It supports proxies of course and has a proxy rotater which, as the name implies, will rotate through your proxies as the submissions take place. This is important so that your links are posted all over the internet with the same IP address.

If you are an internet marketer then this is almost all you really need to get by. You can rank your longtails all day with Ultimate Demon and make real money. You can also lay down a solid foundation of basic links for any site. Ultimate Demon does not need to be used as a blackhat link building tool. You can use Ultimate Demon to create thousands of accounts but you don't have to just throw links at them blackhat seo style. Not at all. Just like with Senuke X, many white hat SEO professionals and freelancers will be comfortable using this software to speed up certain processes.

Edwin the creator of Ultimate Demon, best known for creating the standard-setting bookmark software Bookmarking Demon, is a good software developer. What I mean is that he supports his client base in a professional manner. I have never had a problem with their support at Edwin Soft -ever. That's amazing and you know what? I'm going to sing about it loud and clear because I believe that customer service is NOT what it used to be. So whenever I get good customer service I tell the whole world about it.

Ultimate Demon vs Senuke

There is some interesting debate going on in the forums regarding Ultimate Demon vs Senuke X. The general consensus is that Ultimate Demon is very close to Senuke X now and will probably eclipse it one day. One of the main differences between Senuke X vs Ultimate Demon is the diagram designer in SEN-x. The diagram designer has become a real favorite among Senuke X users. It provides a drag and drop interface that you can use to set up your link campaigns. Ultimate Demon does not have that and some people miss it. I don't think this is a deal breaker though, and especially not at the discount price (well it's almost a discount compared to senuke).

Both link building programs have automatic captcha solving. You can just sign up at whatever captcha solving service comes with either program and you never have to enter a captcha. Hands off! Both have proxy support as I mentioned earlier. Ultimate Demon has a feature that is similar to Scrapebox and not Senuke X; you can scan your backlinks to see if they are live. You can even check for article links that go live days later. This is really cool.

Senuke x has link wheel capabilities but you have to know how to use senuke x really well to even be aware of it. Edwin says that he is working on adding the linkwheel feature to Ultimate Demon as soon as this spring.

Is Ultimate Demon Black Hat

I see this question in my keywords as reported by google analytics all the time. It's not always is ultimate demon black hat, but it applies to all link building software that I review. I get asked, or at least people find this blog by searching for, "Is bookmarking demon black hat" or "Is senuke black hat".  I have the same answer: Software is not blackhat and it can't be. Black Hat simply refers to a mindset that search engine optimization professionals can adopt. This mindset is to apply all working techniques as regards SEO to our sites and our client's sites. Some techniques capitalize on underdeveloped parts of the GSA or google search algorithm. That's it.

Let me ask you, the reader: Is it "black hat" to use software to sign up accounts at lots of sites? Even if you think it is it's not the software that is black hat - it's the mindset of the person. Really, black hat is a term that's been way overused and now it has little meaning, kind of like the word Genius. Now that Kurt Cobain has been called a genius (isn't every artist called a genius when they die young?) the word has no more meaning:) Same is true with black hat. Having said that, you can use this software to throw thousands of links very quickly to some parasite web2.0 pages and outrank older authority sites. Just look at the pharma serps and you'll understand.


 Ultimate Demon Guide - Ultimate Demon Manual

Ultimate Demon comes with a great operating manual and guide. There are lots and lots of screen shots and everything is covered. Ultimate Demon specifications are all documented throughout. This manual is very detailed and seems as though it was written with the complete nooby in mind. That's how it should be too. Let me tell you, these tools have come a long way since the early days. I used to do all of this work by hand. Ugh!


There are also many videos on youtube showing you the ins and outs of Ultimate demon. I may make a short video myself, but I really need to figure out how to produce better quality videos, especially the sound quality.  My Ultimate Demon manual is for version 1.2 because I haven't downloaded the new one if there is one. I know how to use this software now that I've had it for a while. After a couple of runs through it you should have it down.

Ultimate Demon Affiliate Program

There definitely is an ultimate demon affiliate program available. I recommend buying this software, learning how to use it and then joining the affiliate program. I always purchase and use the link building software that I review on this site. This is a monthly subscription software unless you buy the lifetime license. That means that you can make some serious affiliate cash selling this software. I have no problems selling this link building software at all because I believe in the product - I use it.
By the way, you have to sign up to RegNow to promote Ultimate Demon and get paid!

Ultimate Demon Bonus

There are a lot of marketers like me selling Ultimate Demon now. In order to be competitive many of them are offering an ultimate demon bonus if you buy from them. What they are offering is a list of site you can upload into Ultimate Demon thus expanding the software's potential. But the problem is that that defeats the purpose of scraping your own links. A lot of noobs don't get this so pay attention if you are a noob: don't use other people's link lists. It's okay, I guess, to use a friends or coworkers link list but you really don't want to use a link list (list of pligg or article or forums etc...) that is being sold to everybody who makes a purchase at some site. You will all have the same list and your links won't be natural looking. Remember, one of the great things about Ultimate Demon is the camouflage factor. Ultimate Demon links can be made to look quite natural if you are careful. Downloading a big list of sites you can upload to Ultimate Demon is not a very good idea. Go ahead, try it if you are lazy, but you'll come around.

Ultimate Demon Forum

Edwin has just setup a forum for Ultimate Demon and his other products like Bookmarking Demon, Blog Comment Demon, Article Demon and Rewrite Demon. You can check out the Ultimate Demon forum when you get a chance. There is lots to learn in these forums. They are often full of very active, very engaged and very passionate people who use the software, use other link building software all the time and know a great deal about SEO, programming, marketing and so on. I highly recommend joining any software forum, especially the Ultimate Demon forum.

SEO Live Video Analysis | Post Panda SEO Lesson

How to Get Top Rankings After Google Panda Update

This video sheds light on SEO post Panda. In particular this video provides an SEO analysis of the pharma niche where the most aggressive and successful black hat SEO guys do their work. This niche is well known for showing spammy sites in the SERPS despite Google's ever-improving search algorithm. Let's see what's going on in the pharma niche and see if we can learn some tricks from the masters.

There has been a lot of talk lately about SEO post Panda. The Google Panda Update is really starting to bother some people. I have even read on some blogs and sites that SEO is dead! Some say it's an overstatement and others say it's not that much of a stretch at all. I think we should look at some evidence before we decide whether or not SEO will be dead in 2012. In this video I casually analyze the SERPS with you. I am just an SEO professional; one of many. Nonetheless I do this every day for a living so some of you might value our time spent together studying the SERPS.

Panda is causing lots of trouble for sure and many sites, particularly hotel sites, have been negatively impacted in a very big way. However, some of the usual suspects are managing to still beat the system the same old way. I invite you to join me in the video for a brief look at some instructive examples of black hat SEO, featuring evidence of automated link building to a highjacked page. I've been entertaining the idea of adding some instructive videos to this blog.
