This page is here to help you with your SEO, not to make me money, so I totally understand if you prefer not to purchase through my links.

SEO and Link Building Software

I run dozens of sites and there is no way I could do it without these 3 pieces of software. The great thing about them is that you only have to purchase them once and you can use them on all of your sites.

SEO Power Suite  

There’s a definite science and a definite art to making websites rank #1, which is SEO, or search engine optimization. When it’s done right, your business gets found by thousands of new people daily — and secures you new levels of online profits and success.

This is software will get your site to number 1 rankings. I use this myself on all my sites and it really produces results



Do SEO YourselfUltimate Demon

Link building is probably the most important aspect of getting top rankings in search engines. This software takes all the stress out of getting links, but not any old links will get you good rankings. A lot of people make the mistake of building poor quality, no relevant links! This results in a big slap from Google and your site will go tumbling down the serps! I use Ultimate Demon to build quality Tier 1 back links. I explain exactly how to do this Here




gsasearch_engine_rankerGSA Search Engine Ranker 

Another Essential piece of kit for building back links, although I tend to use it for Tier 2 linking it’s a great piece of software that has tons of platforms. If you are serious about SEO then you will need this!! I explain how to use it on my Tier 2 Link building page




ahrefspic Ahrefs

My favourite back link checker Ahrefs. I love this site. Just login, enter a URL and Ahrefs will go and find all of the back links + a ton of other valuable information about the site, such as Anchor diversity, linking domains, geo targeted links and much much more. Ahrefs is not cheap but it is the best back linking tool out there, don’t believe me? check out Matthew Woodwards review here




Kontent-Machine-3-ReviewKontent Machine 3

This little beauty can scrape and spin a ton of content for us. This software keeps getting better and if you want to save your self a ton of time and money then I highly recommend Kontent Machine, especially for Tier 2 Link building



uawbanner UAW

Great for submitting Articles. I use it for diversifying my backlink profile. Just upload your spun articles and let UAW take care of the rest! If you are looking to build links to a newly established site then this is great for doing just that


Extras that you will require



HMA VPN – This is the VPN service that I use, works great and hides your IP address, especially useful when building your own blog network

It’s only $10 a month for world Wide IP’s





If you are going to be using any of the software that I mentioned above then you are going to need proxies. I use They offer a good service at a reasonable price!






BlueHost  are my number 1 choice for hosting when it comes to money sites



Article Spinning

Article Spinning Service – Great service for getting quality spun articles

BestSpinner – Great Spinning software that I use for Tier 2 and Tier 3 articles



WordPress – WordPress is the most popular blogging platform and I use it to create all of my sites, including this Blog



Elance – Great for finding people to complete tasks and work for you on projects. I have used Elance a lot since starting out online

Odesk – Similar to Elance where you can employ people to work for you on all aspects of IT, Design, Programming etc…

Virtual Staff Finder – This is the best resource if you are looking to hire a VA. They do all of the hard work for you in finding the ideal VA to suite your company

So if you are looking for quality SEO software to boost your rankings then look no further. I personally use ALL of the above, and without them I wouldn’t be able to rank my sites.

    Since your site is about giving out your stats and what you’ve done for the month I thought why not put your conversion rate? This may not be that important as a lot of people say that it depends on the niche and other factors but newbies like me keep on looking for that info still as it helps us get a grasp of what should be done.

    Now I can get your conversion rate myself since you kindly put the products that earn you money from, so if I divide your visitors by the price of commission you’re getting then I’d have my answer BUT:

    a) Since this info is attainable, why not just put it on the site for easier access to us who come back each week?
    b) Even though I can calculate it, I might end up with a wrong conversion rate if I divide by the wrong commission giving me a wrong idea and probably your other visitors as well

    Oh! And maybe your e-mail opt in conversion rate too!

    I completely understand if you still choose not to do so though! Good luck in to the following months! 🙂

    Hi Jan

    Sorry, I didn’t know that anybody was interested in conversion rates for each affiliate products! As my main aim is not making money from Aff sales at the minute I won’t be putting conversion rates. I’ve not seen anybody else doing this! Not only is it more time consuming but it can’t be calculated accurately as there are too many varying factors!

    I have included opt in conversion rates in previous monthly profits!

    To be honest, GSA is better in my opinion

    Hi! May I ask why do you prefer UD for tier 1 and GSA SER for tier 2? I have GSA SER and all the other stuff needed, but is it possible in your opinion to use GSA for tier 1 backlinks too?

    Jason Chesters Reply:

    Lately I have sided more towards PBN links for Tier 1 and saved the Software for Tier 2. You can use GSA for tier 1 but be very careful and ensure that it is set up correctly! We don’t want spammy links as tier 1

    I been stalking your website for some weeks and keep coming back, reading how you do link building.
    I am very much in doubt and a cheap bastard, and I been thinking about getting GSA simply because it’s cheap and a one time fee.. but I also find blog posts from other SEO’s, saying that tiered link building isn’t as safe as they used to be, since the algorithm update last year. So you are using PBN’s instead of Web 2.0’s as your Tier 1’s?
    Do you still use Web 2.0’s? and from what I read you don’t really need to build any backlinks to your PBN’s correct?
    Sorry for all the quesions, hope you got the time to answer, and you might earn another e-mail sub 😉

    Hey Ramus

    Yes, tiered link building is becoming more risky, or should I say, less relevant!! GSA is still a great tool though but you don’t need to waste your money on lots of software. PBN’s are much better for tier 1. Yes I still use web 2.0’s along side PBN’s.

    PBN’s are built on expired domains which already carry good link juice due to their metrics, so you don’t have to build back links to them

    Hope this helps
