    So I've been trying to use Google to find sites with specific text on them, e.g., "leave a reply" + keyword .. but I'm BARELY getting any results where the text "leave a reply" is actually there.

    Not only that, no matter what I search (e.g., what is the best * company?), the result with that exact phrase ends up at the bottom while completely unrelated results are being showed to me. Do you guys think its possible that its just my niche?

    I switched over to Bing and seeing much better and much more relevant results to my queries -- don't know why I haven't been using Bing. Anyone know how to get SEOQuake to work with Bing?

    Googles searches have been pretty mixed since the latest updates. I think you will find lots of people getting similar results

    You are right. I've been on scrapebox most of this week and the results that is coming back (for Google searches) are just plain stupid.
    I think Google might be turning off "stopword" or "generic term" searching.

    Which means just going to another engine to find them of course.

    No biggy. I get better results with other SE's anyway.

    Google search is retarded nowadays. I changed to 100 results per page instead of 10 and it shows me same site about.com 50 times. This doesnt happen when I go through page 1 to page 10 which consists of default 10 results.

    You might have to switch to verbatim mode. I need to figure out how to apply verbatim mode to scrapebox's Google Search engine.
    Something to do with &tbs=li:1 but I don't know how to apply it

    Yea, I'm trying to use SEOQuake to manually pick out sites to build links on but I'm seeing the same site like 10x or more. The results are just terrible. I want to use BING or YAHOO but can't figure out how to get SEOQuake to work on there? Anyone?
