    It depends on the skill and budget.

    If you do manual blog commenting, it can be done. But will take forever to find high PR blog.

    It always come down to budget and goals.

    how about both? there are ton on seo tools out there where most of them will do nothing for you and some even will get your site penalized. however, there are handful of seo tools that works just like manual if you know how to use them properly. then there are black hat seo tools that will help you in the short run but may end up getting your site banned in the long run. all depends on your expertise and comfort level as well as budget (some seo tools are really expensive).

    Personally I use both depending on the amount of work involved. Generally I prefer to do SEO manually.

    I like both. Manual SEO is the 'real' way of SEO and is always rewarding when you go out and find an untapped source of high quality links. However, software is great because it saves time and basically takes the thought-process out of most of it. If you use them both, you can get results far better than one or the other.

    Manual SEO is highly recommended and is most rewarding though we need to be patient. Automated SEO is also fine but at the end of the day, it depends on your skill, budget allocation, time and the cost involved to decide which one to go for.

    There are so many different aspects of SEO, there is no single tool to help with all aspects

    To buy software needed to complete every aspect of SEO is something you should not do unless you provide SEO for others, it costs too much for the individual blogger to be successful

    I prefer to do manual when it comes to SEO. Because if I do manual, I can double check my work properly rather than auto submission it is easy but it is complicated.

    absolutely! even if people send their links automatically, they HAVE to check if everything went through correctly. The amount of people who trust the "SUCCESS!" (or even the FAILED*) without checking on the status themselves is absurdly high. You can have someone submit for you to directories or something, but to get good baccklinks, do yourself the favor and do the work.

    Manual alone is not enough if your competitor has some solid bots

    Manual SEO is definitely more worth it.
