If you looking to solve an algae issue for a particular setup, you'll have to look into a host of things. These mentioned would be key:

IMO most significant algae issues are not related to the dosing method we choose. If the tank is new, light is usually the culprit, but nothing works in a vacuum, everything is connected.
