Building backlinks is a chore. A very necessary chore, if you like to get some Google traffic. SEOLinkRobot joins the ranks of software tools that aim to make backlink building a lot easier and quicker and in this review, we’ll take a close look at how it aims to do so.
Is SEOLR a serious competitor and will it help you get your sites ranked more easily than ever before? Or is it just “yet another” mediocre link-building tool?
Read on to find out.

SEO Link Robot is a windows-based program and, like many of it’s kind, it automates backlink building through various submissions, like article-submissions to article directories and free blogging sites, social bookmark submissions etc.
Available Link Targets
As of this review, here’s a breakdown of the sites SEOLinkRobot can submit to:
- 26 Free Blogs
- 9 Article Directories
- 10 Press Release Sites
- 18 Social Bookmarking Sites
- 16 RSS Directories
- Loads of Pinging Sites
Total Link Targets: 79
This is a pretty low number, compared to many competing products. It’s not necessarily a deal-breaker, but mixing up links from only 79 sources can only get you so far, no matter how fancy your link-building strategies are.
It’s far more effective to show what this software does, rather than just write about it for pages on end, so here’s a quick walkthrough video:
Mini Nets and Limitations
As mentioned in the video, the options to automatically build large or small (open) linkwheels and the "mini-net-builder" are features that make SEOLinkRobot unique. I've seen many backlink building services that offer creating mini-nets and networks consisting of multiple mini-nets for their clients. SEOLinkRobot can automate much of the creation tasks for those kind of link networks.
The problem is the lack of diversity in the available link targets, though. You may be able to build very complex, interlinked networks using SEOLR, but all of those links will be coming from the same 79 total websites...
And while I'm nagging: SEOLinkRobot lacks a scheduling function and it seems that account creations are only possible with one thread at a time (which makes them a very slow process). On the other hand, the submissions work with multiple threads and in general, I've found SEOLR to be overall easy to use and pleasant to work with. While the total number of sites in the system is low, at least the success rates are very good.
All in all, SEOLinkRobot is promising, but too limited to warrant a real recommendation. There's nothing dramatically wrong with it, except that it just doesn't submit to a large number of sites. If it were available at a one-time price, I'd recommend it as a nice little mini-net building software, but as it is, I'm not sure SEOLR is worth the cost, compared to the competing products.
