Brute Force SEO Description

Brute Force SEO is a service created by Peter Drew. The Brute Force SEO tool allows you to automate many tasks for search engine optimization. The main goal of the program is to help you build backlinks by posting your links on web 2.0 sites, authority sites, social bookmarking sites, and RSS feeds.

Brute Force SEO Detailed Overview

Search engine optimization is a long process that requires you to build links in order to get the results you want. The problem lies in the fact that building links can take a long time and it requires a lot of manual labor. Outsourcing the task is an option, but not every marketer has the budget to do so.

Brute Force SEO is a tool that takes care of many of these tasks. Many Internet marketers know that web 2.0 properties and authorities can bring them a ton of free backlinks. Brute Force SEO helps you get pages on Wordpress, Geocities, Tripod, Yahoo, 360, MSN, and Blogger. It creates pages so you can post a link back to your main site and improve your rankings. It also has submission tools for social bookmarking sites, RSS feed directories, article directories, and video sites.

A really strong point is that the tool automatically creates accounts across all the bookmarking sites. This is a big time saver as the sign up process can be a long process. While it may be a little black hat, you can create multiple accounts again and again to bookmark for multiple projects.

I have to mention that Brute Force SEO is not for beginners who don’t have an understanding of how SEO works and how to set up linking strategies. The program has a bit of a learning curve and can take an hour to learn. I found that even those experienced with SEO will need to take some time to learn how it works as it’s not the easiest tool to use.

The benefits of this program sounds great but according to many customers, there were many problems with Brute Force SEO. People have complained that the tool didn’t feel complete, crashed often, and sometimes didn’t submit to sites properly. This is obviously a big problem if the goal is to get links posted successfully.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Brute Force SEO Reputation

In conclusion, Brute Force SEO has received mixed reviews. There are a few people who have used the program with success but there are many people having problems with it. It seems Peter Drew (the creator) needs to fix bugs and make updates in order to make it run smoother. Customers of SEnuke competing software) have expressed that Brute Force SEO didn’t live up to expectations and was inferior to SEnuke. The price is very expensive, costing $97 a month. In my opinion, you would be better off going with SEnuke until the problems with Brute Force SEO are resolved.

Not bad-Could be better

Brute Force Seo, and this is only my opinion, is the buggiest program I ever used in my life!

Yes the programmers are working it, however for me and you the software can be extremely hit or miss. Would you invest in something like that?

The price for Brute Force SEO is high, the instructions aren't the best! And too be frank, it is not newbie friendly at all.

Possibly useful for experienced marketers to pick up a few advanced techniques. However I still feel that everything in this program can mostly be found in other places at much lower prices.

Conclusion: Over priced, over complicated and for that reason, I'm out!

Really good software

SEO is a long process and slow in the start especially if you do things manually and because of that, you would really love automated tools like Brute force SEO which takes all activities like social bookmarking, blog commenting and article submission really easy instead of using 3 separate programs or having nothing at all. You will love this software if you know SEO and you're confident that you have tested it on a sample of sites. That's what I usually I do and I suggest trying out SENuke too.

Beware - Customer service is non existent

I would urge anyone to be very, very careful before considering Brute Force. I don't like to use the word scam, but I for one have lost a great deal of money which I am still trying to recover - with no success.

Two weeks ago I became an affiliate of Peter Drew's EVO2 software. The intention was to get affiliate commission from my blogging articles on various SEO blogs I run. To become an affiliate I had to sign up via an email form, giving my PayPal details.

One week or so later my PayPal was debited by 157 USD! I tried contacting the helpdesk for a refund, various times. Each time I was told that due to the terms and conditions they were unable to offer refunds under any conditions. This despite the fact that I signed up only as an affiliate. I had no intention of using the software myself, and never have done, as they can attest. One week later they are still refusing to return the money they took from my PayPal account. From Peter I have heard nothing.

I have no issue with Peter Drew, who is a valued member of the SEO community, or with the software, which may or may not work. However the outright refusal to refund a transaction that was clearly erroneous is inexcusable. Caveat emptor.

Please look elsewhere.

Methods Ok, Bad Software

I was a member for a while, but have canceled. I haven't used the latest version EVO2 but the previous version was crazy buggy. But, Peter seemed to have some good ideas and his forum was pretty good. He was smart about RSS and most people could learn how to really use RSS to have better promotion results, so it was good in that regard.

Not Too Good

Bugs, bugs and more bugs, but after trying my patience for a while this product did what it was supposed to do, to a certain extent. While it did not maximize my traffic, it did increase it by about 10%.

Brute Force SEO's customer support is non-existent. Every time I submitted a support request, I got no answer. That as far as I'm concerned is inexcusable, and is the reason why I gave this product a D instead of a C.

All in All, I would say don't buy this product. There are better ways to optimize your websites and blogs. Because of all the bugs in Brute Force SEO, using it is rather time consuming.

Buggy but still works

This tool is designed to help you optimize and monetize your website/blog by embedding it with this software for maximum traffic via Back links. This tool works as intended, however one of the biggest frustrations for me is that it's buggy. It crashes mostly at the crucial stages. I had noticed that whenever I embed my Affiliate links in bulk and run the software it crashes. Even more annoying thing is the customer support. I even doubt if they exist. This is really a good tool provided the bugs are fixed. This software will automatically optimize your blog and you can even embed with your affiliate links/blogs/websites and it will post on the various authority sites to get the quality traffic to your site. My traffic increased by 29 % in less than 3 weeks.

Evo 2 An Improvement but still Buggy

Brute Force Seo in my opinion was the buggiest program I ever used in my life. Strides have been made with the evo 2 softwar,e but still the software can be extremely hit or miss. When evaluating these programs it's important to factor in not only the efficiency and price tag. When you look at Brute Force SEO and the 150 plus per month tag it is not worth it at that price. The competition for this software is senuke and senuke is by far superior.

Good old Pete

You would think I would have learned by now..

I have been sucked into the hype many times by MANY marketing products, and once again I have fallen victim. The creator of this product is Peter Drew. Peter Drew has made many other products, such as Extreme Live Blog Article Automator, Extreme Google Pages Bomber, GEO Authority Link Explosion and, RSS SEO Explosion. Sadly I bought a bunch of these as well. I am sure I am missing some others that he is the creator of. The point is, NONE of these products have ever been very useful. All the programs in Brute Force SEO are individual products that are available to get individually.

After using BruteForce SEO for about 3 weeks, I was not in the least impressed. Since I am not a huge money maker on the internet, the steps were very hard to follow. The creator assumes that everyone is highly experienced (despite the product claiming it is newbie friendly). This program is VERY hard for newbies to follow.

From what I picked up, Pete stresses using RSS feeds and keyword phrases that have around three to 5 words in the phrase. I asked one of my experienced friends about these methods, and he showed me easier ways to achieve the same goals.

The price tag for Brute Force SEO is high, the instructions are very hard to follow, and it is not newbie friendly at all. This could be useful for experienced marketers to pick up a few advanced techniques. However I still feel that everything in this program can mostly be found in other places at much lower prices. Stay away.

Functional but Clunky

I'm an experienced programmer, both online and in private business. My initial reaction to BF was... wow, cool. Now that's a great way to tie all those things together.

However, after joining (and participating for a month), I have to state that I was quite disappointed. Especially for the price. As stated in the review, the system is *not* nearly as automated as promoted. A newbie would be lost in no time. (My non-techie wife helps me in my IM efforts and I shuddered when thinking about how I could explain this to her).

In Pete's defense, the concepts are sound, and the way he uses RSS feeds is quite brilliant. But, the same results that he claims can be accomplished with other better written and more stable tools that are one-off purchases. (I was easily able to get two sites to page one in a couple weeks using Micro Niche Finder and an article submitter).

Pete emphasizes (and demonstrates) long-tail keyword phrases because they are more rank-able, but that could also be construed as an anti-endorsement for his software. Why? Because it's not necessary to use expensive membership software to achieve long-tail rankings. That can be done with a bit of patience and good strategy (or even accidentally).

Another of Pete's products, BadAss RSS Submitter, suffers a bit as well. I am currently testing it, and while it does do what it states (submits RSS feeds), I have uncovered a number of other products that do the exact same thing without requiring a monthly fee.
