I have been discussing this over with several other SEO friends of mine. And we all agree GSA website ranker needs to increase its price, or suffer the same fate as Scrapebox and Xrumer. Not that these aren't good tools. But g**gle is on a war path and theirs not many good tools left that has effect in serps like GSA. Scrapebox single handedly destroyed blog commenting. Xrumer single handedly destroyed profile links. Not because there bad tools. But G**gle comes along and slaps what the tools do. I.E blog commenting for backlinks,or profile links for backlinking. Its getting harder and harder to find useful SEO tools these days that actually work. Many of us use "Auto" tools because we have so many websites and GSA is one of the best tools currently. But unless this stays out of the hands of every noob with a hundred dollar bill. GSA will soon suffer the same fate as the others. And before the GSA affiliate's come here and flame me, which I know what there gonna say "GSA has so many platforms its hard to slap" True! But tell that to G**gle. They don't care about platforms, they will find another way. Look at all these crazy algo updates and what they slap. Link velocity, link diversity etc... who knows. With GSA being public they can go there and do as much studying as any buyer can. And we already know what tricks there playing with the algorithms. They only simply have to change it in a way to combat how the links come in. Take in example. We build a link and then the link is pinged. that could be a footprint. There are tons of other ways to track us. We have no idea, we dont have as much money as G**gle or know what there spam teams (with unlimited budgets by the way) are doing at any time. Im sure there probably already onto GSA. Think about it like this. If you have a security team that's paid tons of money to look for shit like this you think there not already on GSA's heels?? If these tools keep going public and are sold for next to nothing everyone better get ready to start building manual links all day for 50-100 sites or however many sites that you own. Good luck with that shit. GSA needs to be private tool and should be sold for 1k atleast. No im not a disgruntled SEO, Im a big SEO tool lover and privacy guru. If you look over bhw history, there are so many tools that come and go. Usually they last until the next update.
Also scrapebox has been under DDOS for the last 2 months because blog owners want to destroy it even. Think about how many people own that $57 spamming tool?
Sorry im just not a fan of these tools being public and for dirt cheap.. Rant over!
Feel free to speak your piece!
