List of services/tools we recommend:
Simply put, I think it is best to have AMR, BMD and a private blog network membership such as Blog Blueprint.
Article Distribution services:
Article Marketing Robot (make sure to check out my article marketing robot review). By far the best tool I’ve used especially for a one time fee, submits very well to a lot of article directories
Private blog networks
I tend to rotate these every now and then and stick with the ones that consistently help.
Other networks to try that seem to work well post March 2012 for network diversification are:
3) Ezarticlelink (For ranking results read my ezarticlelink review post! )
3) Linkamotion (read my Linkamotion review to see how I use it)
Bookmarking Demon I did not have much direct ranking success in the past using social bookmarks but by using Bookmarking demon and the thousands of bookmarking sites as I shown in my bookmarking demon review, not only does it help add some diversification to my linking thanks to some do follow/no follow but I have seen quick rankings increase after a well spread submission over a week.

Tool related to help facilitate making articles with spin syntax:
The best spinner, watch the videos in this how to use the best spinner post to see how it can help speed up the process of spinning articles to distribute to the many article syndication services.
Directory Submission software that work
Sliq submitter plus, here is my post and review on this directory submission software. Very useful once you have a few websites to plug into this software, I usually see great ranking changes after submitting a website to many directories but of course this is a one time thing. I recommend a 3 month subscription once you have ~4+ websites to submit that are a few months old.
Tools/services we do not recommend:
Beyond some of the tools we suggest in our A to Z guide, here are a few others newbies and non newbies alike might be interested in.
Keyword rank checker
You have a lot of options for a keyword rank checker, the best free option I have found so far is seobook’s rank checker firefox plugin.
Other tools for keyword research
SEMRush, find out your competition’s keywords and spy on mega websites like ezine articles to find keywords you can build websites on (if ezine ranks for it, you probably can beat them). Our SEMRUSH review and here is another post and video on how I use SEMrush to give me new niche ideas to start websites on by finding easy to rank for keywords.
$17 for ~20 articles with spin syntax a month. If you want articles complete with spin syntax delivered to your email every business day (so 5 a week) you might be interested in this post. It’s $17 and I had success using them to backlink non related niches but if you are in the health or IM niche these will definitely save you some money, just make sure to follow the tips I point in my post such as making unique ressource boxes and/or add a unique paragraph with your links inside.
Service to help get your backlinks Indexed
Backlink indexer, you can look at my review of multiple backlink service/software post for more information on the results that lead to this recommendation.
