    Has anyone used Imautomater for backlinking on their websites? If so, what are your experiences with it, and what do you think about it?

      I think it is a waste of time.. I did not really use it though.. but I felt that it gives you a useless heap of oneway links which panda may not like .. IMHO But I am not the SEO guru LOL lol

        Thanks for your input, Sofs, I appreciate it! Anyone else have any thoughts about it? How about Zimbio? Has anyone tried that one?

      I have just started using imautomator - free version. So far I cannot tell any results. It seems it could be good, if you take the long time spread, or bad and maybe even harmful, if you used the 5 day link period for all your links.

      Basically, too early to tell.

    I have used IMAutomator for more than one year. There was a noticeable increase in traffic within one month of starting. There are some tools they said were coming that have not materialized so I continue to use the free version. There are several ways to do the linking.  I use the longest two spreads of time and also make sure the links are unique and not duplicate. That makes it a lot of work that many might think are not worth the effort. I have also been able to develop two way links.

    All in all I feel, as part of a total program of white hat promotion the free version is worth the time. I would pay for the pro version if some of the promised tools would appear.

      Deliberately creating links to screw with Google search is never going to be whitehat.

        One never knows who to believe. I actually first found out about IMautomator within the Google adsense help forum, where active Google monitors were certainly present and commenting.

        I guess it might be like many things, if you abuse it you can have problems. It's not like paying for clicks or even paying for links and it's a lot of work.

          Google doesn't like things like IM Auto but you won't get punished for it.  The reason is that I could set up an IM Auto account and use it to promote, say, Will Apse's hubs.  It wouldn't be fair if Will was punished for that.  The worst that will happen is that the links generated by IM Auto will be ignored by Google.
