Article Submitter Platinum Review, Brad Callen

I purchased Article Submitter Platinum by brad callen a few months ago and I have had a chance to actually see some meaningful results. Basically it works like this: you write an article and copy paste it into the article submitter. Then it will ask you to fill out the standard info like name, password, pen name, title, resource box etc... Then you are pretty much good to go.

I just love one way link building software and the more automatied the better. Article submitter platinum by brad callen has an autosubmit feature. This is what I found really appealing about it of course. You just click the submit button and it will automatically submit to a few hundred article directories.

An article submitter should be in every webmasters tool kit. I place three links in the resource box and automatically submit that to a few hundred directories. That is pretty sweet. Some of these directories are more popular than others and, at the popular directories you can expect more folks to download your articles. So when you think about it article marketing is slightly viral in nature.

Brad Callen did a pretty good job with this one. I like the idea of paying for the software instead of paying a monthly fee for article submission services. The software is a one time fee. That's my philosophy.

One good point about article marketing is that these articles have links to your pages on your money site right? Well if the article is relevant to the content on your site (and it should be) then the link will be a little juicier. I always put my keywords in the article title right in the beginning. This is good link building because the title of your article will often be the title of the 'page' linking to your site. In other words you have the ability to create a ton of links from a very relevant pages.

I use article submitter platinum daily and the results are impressive. The links show up slowly over time so I often just load up ten or 20 articles and let it rip!

Here's a tip: get links to your articles. Yes, write articles to promote your articles. Of course keep the anchor text themed. In this way you will be building a linear chain of anchored links to your money site. Also, getting some links to your articles can help them from giong supplemental. Sometimes i use bookmarking demon to tag and my articles, wherever they are, and get them indexed quicker. I love bookmarking demon and I simply couldn't do my job if I didn't have it.

Keyword Elite

Keword Elite has made it into Googles Top Trends!! They must be making a killing over there at the im wishlist.

I've been using Keword Elite for a while now and it really is a good product. I have managed to unearth a ton of cool and profitable niches with keyword elite. I first have it generate a huge keyword list. Then I find all of the buying keywords and use those to generate even more keywords. Keyword Elite will generate thousands of keywords for you if you give it some time.

Keyword elite has other functions that I really like. It has the cost per click analysis and the amount of searches too. Sometimes, and this is what is really cool, you can find a long tail keyword in keyword elite and it actually has a lot of searches but very little competition. If you find a niche like that keep it to yourself!!

Keyword elite is right up there with Seo elite, both made by Brad Callen. These two products together are an awesome force. I use keyword elite to find the high paying niches and I use seo elite to analyze the competition. It works really well if you have your own system or rather once you get your method down. It's not link building software but it's part of the mix. This is about SEO.

I highly recommend Keword Elite to anyone who hasn't purchased it yet.

Bookmarking Demon 4 Review | One Way Link Building Software


BMD4 has been out for a while now and has already been upgraded a few times. It now includes even more sites. After using this version for the last 6 months or so I can say that my favorite feature is the ability to add new sites that I find on my own. When I bookmark with BMD I am bookmarking to over 400 sites. This is truly kick ass!

There are a ton of pligg and scuttle sites out there. I use searchbot to find all the registration pages and simply paste the list into BMD.

End Update

Bookmarking Demon 4 is on the verge of officially launching. It is available here. It's only %60 of the full version. (Update: The full version has been out for a while) I have been testing it in beta though and I really love it. I already liked bookmarking demon 3 and I got tons of one way links with it, but bookmarking demon 4 is much better. It's actually not even an upgrade at all but an entirely new software! It really is. It doesn't look the same or anything. It's a huge, huge improvement.

It's got two modes, one for beginners and one for experts. Options are amazing too. The bottom line is that with bookmarking demon 3 you could create accounts at 20 sites but not all of them worked. Some you had to go to and set up the account manually but it was still pretty quick using bookmarking demon. But anyways, say out of 20 social bookmarking sites you would actually only successfully create accounts at about 10-14 sites.

Now with bookmarking demon 4 you can create accounts at 100 sites!! The beta version has just 58 sites but that's good for me for now. I'll take it. So everytime I bookmark a link it goes to 58 sites. That's 58 links. Actually it's more because for every keyword you enter it creates a tag at the social bookmarking sites. A tag gets its own page and thus you get another one way link.

(Update: My version of BMD has over 400 places to bookmark)

This is my favorite one way link building software for sure. I set it up to run huge amounts of links before bed every night. I also use it to get new sites indexed in less than 24 hours usually. Not to mention the traffic it brings. You can get some pretty good traffic from the social sites which is always a plus! I mainly use bookmarking demon 4 to get my anchored links. That's what matters most to me.

Fast Blog Finder Review

Fast Blog Finder is an excellent piece of software indeed! It will find you lots of one way links and that's what this whole blog is about, one way link building software. Fast Blog Finder searches for blogs that you can leave comments on. Of course when when you leave a comment on a blog you get a link back to your own website.

I used to to use Real Link Finder which was a free shareware software. It was great and I used it every day. But I switched then to Comment Demon as it found more blogs to comment on. However, it did not parse do follow from no follow. I had to use that Fire Fox plugin that puts a line through all no follow links.

Fast Blog Finder actually parses the do follow from the no follow so that's cool right there. It finds lots of blogs to comment on and you can parse the information in a variety of ways. I typically sort by page rank. I search almost exclusively for do follow blogs because they pass the link juice that's so important. No follow comments are good too for a number of reasons. For one no follow links still indicate relevance. You just don't get juice for it page rank wise, but the anchor texts still tell Goog what your site is about, so that's good.

No follow links are still followed, they just don't pass the google juice. But yahoo doesn't care at all about do follow. You can have all no follow links and rank number one in yahoo. So no follow is good too.

Fast Blog Finder first asks you to enter a search term or keyword. That way you can comment on relevant blogs. It tries to bring back blogs related to the keyword you enter. If you are creative you can find lots of high page rank pages to get those one way links from.

How much would it cost to purchase a pr5 link? Couple hundred bucks? Think about it. All you have to do is find one pr5 link with Fast Blog Finder and you've gotten your money's worth and then some. When it comes to one way link building software I consider this a must have. Even if you don't get fast blog finder itself, you need some kind of blog finding software. It's just that fast blog finder is definitely the best one.

One Way Link Building

One way link building is now a term that people rarely use to describe just plain old link building. One way link building was meant to be distinct from reciprocal linking, where each party links to one another. Reciprocal linking used to be all the rage back in the day, say 2007 and earlier. One way link building is now just link building. Wow, time flies.

Links to your website are very important indeed. They are considered, more or less, as votes for your site. Not all votes are equal. Some "voters" are much more important that others. The important "voters" have high pagerank. It's good to have lots of one way links point to your website because your website will be more visible in the search engine results pages SERPS. In turn your website will get more traffic and therefore more sales. It's very simple really.

The number one thing your site needs to be successful is good content. Before we get any further I think we need to agree on exactly what "good" content is. But, the problem with that is it could take a while. In fact, I think everyone has their own idea of what good content is. To me content is about functionality. That's a strange way to put it but follow along for a second. Content should do a few things:

1. Attract visitors via search engines and keywords
2. Convince visitor to purchase your product or service.

If the content doesn't do that then it's not going to make the website owner as much money. That's not what I call "good" content. But I digress...

After putting some good content on your website, you'll need to get some links if you want to start conquering keywords, one by one. That's what this whole blog is about - getting links to your website. There are many ways to get nice links back to one's site. Some can be partially or completely automated while others require manual expertise. The problem with doing things by hand is scaling up. How can you take on 30 seo clients if you have to do everything by hand? How can you promote 100 of your own affiliate websites if you do it all by hand? It's impossible. That's why we must think of seo in terms of systems and networks. We need to be able to automate those repetitive, mindless tasks that are a necessary part of our jobs as seo's or internet marketers. Otherwise, there is no way to scale up and surf those BIG waves of success!

Link building software
has come a long way in the last few years. There have been many innovations which have lead to great improvements. I'm thinking, just off the top of my head, of randomization. Bookmarking Demon, article submitters and such; they were always submitting the same links, same footprints etc... Now with randomization, most link building software tools are much more effective as they don't leave big footprints. The benefit is that more articles, bookmarks and forum profiles get indexed than back in the good old days.

Feedback from a very active black hat seo community has helped to shape some of this innovative seo link building software. Things are looking good for seo link building software in 2011, at least in my opinion. I'm happy with things.

In this blog I review some of the tools that I use to do my day to day seo work. I hope you can benefit from my experience.
