XRumer, blackhat SEO tool in nature, can help a site rank better in search engines. What it does is actually post (a.k.a. blast) your site to Forums, Blogs and any web properties you can think of.
Despite it is proven to be able to boost your search engine rankings, there are some pitfalls you CAN actually avoid, such as Google ban, web hosting account suspension, etc.
Now, have you ever think to use Xrumer to get your competitors getting banned by Google? Hmm… *eeevil*
First of all, read this FAQ from one of XRumer service sites regarding Google ban:
Will Google Ban Me?
If by using xrumer you could get a site banned from Google, then competitors would xrumer away to get there competition banned, So the answer to this myth is certainly not.
However new, unestablished sites without existing backlinks or PR can get sandboxed by Google, But again by doing a little manual work and gaining some quality High PR links to your site will get your site out of Google sandbox.
Well, it seems that XRumer won’t get your competitors’ site banned from Google, or is it?
Behold – the weapon of mass destruction
Well, here’s an almost unanimous conclusion: Google knows when you do excessive linking in a short period of time – this is why many SEO people suggest for us to do link building on regular and ongoing basis, not a one-time bulk linking and months of non-existent link building. The aftermath: Your site can be sandboxed and/or have your backlinks’ value decreased considerably.
Now, many survive the Google ban, and like what is mentioned in the FAQ above, even if your site sandboxed, you can get your site out relatively easy.
However, here’s a real life story: A client of mine tell me that his friend’s site is getting ‘killed’ by one of its competitors, allegedly using XRumer software. The site’s backlink is growing enormously with unrelated and questionable originating sites (a finance site is getting links from a drag racing site, for example?)
The results so far: The site’s once top 10 in its target keyword now has dropped to page 2 for the same keyword – this is also happen to the overall site rankings in multiple keyword phrases – devastating, indeed.
So, is XRumer cool?
To some, yes. Many resent using such tools and prefer whitehat SEO methods, but again, we must see this case by case.
Using XRumer blasts sparingly could keep your site under the radar. All in all, try at your own risk
