SENuke XCr Review
It seems that people have waited for almost 2 years for the launch of SENuke X which finally happened back in April 2011 and just over a year later the guys behind SENuke X came out with the all new and improved version which they decided to call SENuke XCr and those extra “Cr” are there for a reason.
I don’t see any reason to cover everything SENuke XCr has to offer since it is built on SENuke X so everything that was included with SENuke X you will also find in the all new SENuke XCr and you can read all about these features in my SENuke X Review.
I prefer to focus here on the new features that were added to SENuke and what they mean for you. SENuke X is a really great link building automation tool but it wasn’t perfect and had a few flaws and it seems that with SENuke XCr they really focused on getting those flaws fixed, especially with all the big changes Google made in 2012 that really effected the SEO world.

Before we go over the newly added features, take 3 minutes to watch this overview video of the all new SENuke XCr so you will get a better understanding about it.
What’s New in SENuke XCr
As I mentioned before, from first look SENuke XCr doesn’t look very different than SENuke X. Don’t expect the same major changes that were between SENuke X and the original SENuke. The following screenshot shows the main screen of SENuke XCr and for those that were familiar with SENuke X you can probably see that it looks just like SENuke X did with some minor changes that I will cover next.
SENuke X is a great tool so there was no real need for any major overhaul but it did need some tweaks to make it better so let’s cover what was added.
SENuke X had a limited amount of sites you could build links from. That was a real drawback since it was very easy for Google to figure out which are these specific sites and simply devalue the links coming from them. It is a really clear and shiny footprint and with SENuke XCr they managed to overcome this drawback with the all new Macro Recorder.
With the Macro Recorder you can now build links from any website on the web using a very simple interface with no programming skills needed. To better understand how this feature works I recommend you watch the following video.
SENuke X is a very powerful piece of software and it came with a pretty steep learning curve. Not everyone could make full use of it and even those who did, took a little time to learn exactly how to use it efficiently.
This was solved in SENuke XCr with the all new Turbo Wizard, a -page setup that can be done in 30 seconds. Watch the following video to learn exactly how this works and how newbie friendly it makes SENuke XCr.
On top of that newly add Turbo Wizard you will also gain access to various training videos which cover every aspect SENuke XCr and will surly help you figure out how this tool works quickly and easily. For those that are not going to make use of the newly added macro recorder and script portal there are 2 videos that cover everything you need to know in order to make full use of SENuke XCr.
More Link Building Modules
With SENuke XCr you can now automatically build links from PDF sites, Wiki Sits and WordPress sites. The WordPress module is great if you own a private blog network and you want to automate the link building.
SENuke XCr now support Google Places and allows you to build citations to your Google Places page which will improve your rankings in the Google local listings.
‘Cr’ Was Added
The ‘Cr’ that was added means – Crowd Sourcing. This is the main new addition and most powerful one in my opinion. This feature completes the very powerful Macro Recorder that was also added. We all know that most of us are no coders and even though it is quite easy to use the Macro Recorder to teach SENuke XCr to build links from just about any site, most the users will probably won’t take full advantage of this feature.
This is were the crowd sourcing comes into play. There will be a script portal where users will be able to share their scripts with other users and it will be based on a point system. By sharing one script you will be able to download 10 other scripts created by other users.
SENuke will keep track of the success rates for each script that will be added to the portal and will auto remove those with low success rates. This will also allow other users to earn points by fixing poor scripts that are in the portal.
Since SENuke has thousands of users you can expect the script portal to fill up very fast which will allow you to create links from just about any site on the internet.
This is pretty powerful stuff.
As you can see in the following screenshot there are currently 315 total scripts in the script portal and I expect this number to keep growing.
SENuke XCr Conclusion
SENuke X has been the best automated link building software out there since it launched and with the new features that SENuke XCr bring to the table it really got much better and more importantly, it answers some major issue that SENuke X had with all the recent changes Google and it keeps SENuke on top of the SEO game.
With that said, you really need to understand that SENuke XCr is simply a tool and will only be as good as the person using it. This isn’t a magic and you will need to learn how to use if efficiently in order to get the results you want.
I know that the pricing has always been a main concern for people so you will probably be glad to learn that the pricing hasn’t changed. Also, keep in mind that even though SEO is all about getting free traffic to your sites, it isn’t really free since you will need to invest money when doing SEO since it can’t all be done manually.
SENuke XCr is a great tool to have in your SEO arsenal and as part of your overall SEO plan.
