XRumer Description

XRumer is a software program that scours the Internet to build you backlinks for your search engine optimization campaigns. It searches blogs, message boards, and guest books and automatically registers an account. You can then have the program posts a backlink to your site to increase your search engine rankings or even promote affiliate programs.

XRumer Detailed Overview

There have been many tools developed over the last few years to automate search engine campaigns from page generators, content scrapers, to autoposters. XRumer is a software program that’s been around for a couple of years and helps you in the link building department.

The first thing you need to do is to gather up a list of message boards, blogs, and guest books to post to. In order to build this list, XRumer comes with a program called Hrefer. This searches the major search engines (Google, MSN, Yahoo, AltaVista, etc.) and gathers up a huge list for you.

The program has a proxy feature built in (since it harvests links) and allows you search using word filters, domain extensions, and specific site types like phpBB only, VBulletin only, blogs, guest, and more. Using the program I found that it was easily possible to build a list of tens of thousands of sites you can post to (I built a list of 13,210 in no time).

After you build your list, you move it over to XRumer. The interface is similar to Hrefer and is organized well. You can save and load projects, view reports, schedule your posting and more. You first go to your links database, set multithreading settings, and set the mail settings to get started.

What I liked about the program is that it supports SOCK4/5 and HTTP proxies. The creators also update you with a list of proxies. This is important because you don’t want to use this software and have your maybe web host shut you down.

The software really allows you to register to all the sites on autopilots because it solves over 700 CAPTCHAS. These are basically the security confirmation text you have to enter when you are registering an account. The creators have updated to work with phpBB and PHP-Nuke with any modifications, yaBB, VBulletin, Invision Power Board, IconBoard, UltimateBB, exBB, phorum.org, wiki, and more. You also get a database with 102,000 sites with XRumer.

The mail settings are really interesting. Since you have to confirm your registration with many message board and other sites, the software has a feature that automatically goes into your email address and clicks on the confirmation links. I am really impressed by this one feature as it really cuts down the time it takes to manually do this. You have to remember that you will probably have a list of sites in the thousands and it doesn’t make sense to do this one by one.

There is a problem when you’re posting messages across thousands of sites. All the messages are the same. This will of course trigger the duplicate content penalty and all your links won’t be counted. Also this can leave a nasty footprint for the search engines.

To solve this problem, the software has a text manipulation features that mixes up your post so that it is unique. You should probably aim to create multiple versions of your posts yourself and combine it with the software feature so that you have diversified content being posted.

There is a bit of a learning curve with using this software. To the naked eye most people will think “Great, I can get thousands of links in no time” but you will have to use it carefully. The best method is to try to find targeted sites, filter by page rank, and also adjust the speed of post being made so that your links are being built over time.

Of course, if you abuse XRumer, and your site is associated with bad neighborhoods (like link farms), it can result in it being removed from the major search engine listings. You will want to use the software carefully and protect yourself by using it behind a proxy and going through the sites to see if they’re worth posting to. You can check if a site is safe because XRumer lists the PR of the site in the database.

XRumer Reputation

XRumer is a software program that does what it promises. I think it is extremely useful if you’re running blackhat SEO strategies. The best way to use XRumer would be to build links to your feeder sites (throwaway sites) and have those sites point to your most important sites.

This is because you can always create new sites but it would hurt you if you had your main site penalized. To run a strategy like this, it’s likely that you will need to host domains on different servers, IP blocks, and a structured linking plan. XRumer can also be use without resorting to spam-like tactics. You can browse through the database and only post on sites that are relevant to yours, providing valuable posts.

Customers that have used the software gave it positive feedback. They’ve reported successful link building campaigns and affiliate earnings. The software also is supported by the creators and new improvements and features are always being made. Although it is expensive at $450, it can be a great value if you have a strategy on how to use it.

Pretty awesome - very useful!

I am just amazed with Xrumer. I've heard SEO marketers are using it so I jumped on the bandwagon expecting the same results and it doesn't disappoint. With Xrumer, I was able to generate 1500+ backlinks for the sites I maintain every week. The forum backlinks are awesome! Less than 5% were deleted and I still have backlinks dating 7 months old. That's insane for an autogenerated link! Love it.

Xrumer! how to make it work effectively

I have been using this software for a while, I'm still having problem with getting it to build links and getting my site ranked as every one talks about. I have read the help section from top to bottom and have yet to find out what is the most effective way to generate links to my articles and which links are directed to my site. If any one knows where I could find the videos and the tutorials to this software I would love to know how to find them, because I have been looking and had no luck yet.

Amazing tool for forum poster

This is an amazing software for forum posting. I have been an active forum poster for several months. I used to post various stuffs and share files in forums and websites. But I have to spent lots of time in front of my laptop for posting the same stuff in different forums again and again because I have to login in to each forum one after another. But after using Xrumer software it saves me lots of time! With this software you can post stuff in different forums with a single click. It will automatically login to the forums and post it automatically. I recommend it for forum administrators, posters who publish posts on a regular basis.

Best Tool Ever

I bought this tool a while ago for my forum. I paid the full price of $550, and I was a little nervous at first because I was not sure if it could live up to the hype. Well it did!

It's an amazing tool, it's so powerful. I was ranked 83rd on Google with my forum on the keyword "Martial Arts", but after just 5 blasts with Xrumer, I got up on to the 1st page. It is a great piece of software for anybody who is serious about SEO and wants to get their websites noticed.

Although it can help your site, it can also earn you money by helping others. I made a fair amount of money by charging users of IM forums $5 for a blast with Xrumer. I had lots of interest, earning over $60 on some days. I recommend this tool to any serious internet marketer, or even newbies who want their site higher in the ranks on search engines.

Xrummer is the BEST TOOL I HAVE!

I can't say enough positive things about this.

I bought this at $540 and I'm currently renting a server at $70 a month, and it's second to none, when it comes to backlinking.

DO not expect this to work on it's own however. Before thinking of getting this? You MUST have solid SEO know how, and should only use it to create doorway pages or juice-up your existing web properties to increase in the SERPs.

You can also create thousands of forum spams, that target EASY to rank for keywords. But for the moderately hard words? This is useless, unless a backlinking tool for your properties.

Although a lot of people claim to have been blacklisted or their sites taken down? I have personally never had that experience, and I am extremely disrespectful of Google! I have about 60 domains, all extremely spammed with thousands of backlinks, and they're all doing ok.

This is a great tool, if you know what you're doing.

Good Tool if you know how to use it!

Xrumer is a powerful tool in the hands of a webmaster when it comes to boosting your site in the SERP, rank higher, get a lot of backlinks and increase your Google PR! That is, if you know how to use it. Although it came with a lot of tutorials and videos so you can learn the program, it took me more than a month to master it and become a professional. If you don't know what you're doing, you won't get the results you hoped to, and probably you'll get your site banned from the search engines, especially from Google. I like the antispam measures the program uses, so I don't look like a spammer when posting to forums. I also love the way Xrumer bypasses Captcha, confirms emails and scraps a lot of different forums from the web that are related to 1 niche, using its other tool Hrefer.

I agree it costs too much, and most people can't afford it, and now that the programmers are asking $10/month, it gets even worse.

But this program is absolutely the best of this kind and can get your money back in a week, once you get it to work properly for you.

Not good for newbies, but highly recommended for experienced webmasters!

XRumer is amazing if you can afford it!

XRumer is one of the top applications for blackhat SEO and marketing. It's a very unique application. There is nothing like it, which is probably why it costs so much. The only downside to this brilliant application is the costs You need to pay for the application, then you have to pay more monthly and most of the time. People also invest in a dedicated server.

With xRumer, your able to easily boost your rankings for certain keywords along with generate leads/sales. You may be able to use xRumer to promote a certain website. For example, promoting a GPT website with your refferal link. I've never tried this though.

My friend has this application and he sent me a few 'blasts' to some of my websites. The traffic went sky-high and my websites now rank in some new high-paying keywords which I'm very happy about.

If you're thinking about buying xRumer, you should do your research before-hand, so you know what your going to be doing with xRumer.

Seems to be getting less useful over time

XRumer is a powerful piece of software. I found that it does pretty much exactly what it says it will do. The problem is not so much with XRumer, but the search engines just keep getting smarter and smarter.

It seems like these days the only places where my links are actually posted are in what people and search engines call "bad neighborhoods" on the web - open guestbooks, forums and blogs, etc. that are extremely polluted with tons of spam. I think these days the search engines know all about these automated tools and probably de-value these links??

Xrumer is not cheap but I've easily made my money back by using it. I just haven't really seen an increase in search rankings like I was hoping or expecting. Maybe I'm still doing something wrong ...
