Am I missing something with scrapebox?

    So im having trouble seeing how people are posting to so many blogs with scrapebox, the scrapinf functions seem great but the actual posting seems terribly slow from what I can make out, here is what im doing.

    I scrape say 400,000 blogs (moveable or wordpress) by adding loads of keywords and clciking the moveable or wordpress button.

    Then remove duplicates and this reduces the list to maybe 10,000 on moveable type, then I try and post with the fast poster and it succeeds on maybe 1% of them, I check the links and of the 1% NONE are ever autoapproved, so I start the slow poster up but its so painfully slow that it will take literally weeks to post to a couple of thousand.

    What am I doing wrong? How are people posting to thousands of blogs daily with such a slow poster? Am I scraping them wrong? Should the fast poster be succeeding on more? I am using paid proxies too.

    Any help with this would be much appreciated.

    Have you checked out all of the video tutorials available? There are many on YouTube as well as the ones in with the package. Just watching a few on YouTube myself right now.

    Youtube User:Scrapebox has some good tutorials.

    Yes ive read everything and watched the videos but I cant seem to find anywhere that says what sort of success rate the fast poster is getting? Is it just a case of leaving the slow poster going for months on end? If so then you will never be able to scan for autoapproved ones as it takes so long by the time you reach the end you wont know if they have been autoapproved or moderated approved.

    I have multiple spinned comment but doesnt make any difference for me for the speed or success rate on the fast poster.

    Remove duplicate domains and URLs.

    If you own a blog and someone posts the same comment to 10 different posts at the same time would you think there spam??

    Obviously

    Also a lot depends on your own internet speed. Dont use the internet while your posting

    1 percent is good and if you keep the 1 percent list and continue to scrape them and find other 1 percent, soon you will have 10 percent or more. There are lots of related keywords out there.

    Some SEO will tell you that you must have related content to post comment to. however, from my own experience which I must say is not vast -- I see no problem with backlink values.

    So keep digging for gold ok, nothing that is good ever come so easy.

    SB does a lot of digging for you, now your job is to sort the gold and the metal, well at least for now the gold prices are still higher than the metals. he he he.

    The key to solving the problem is... What is the error listed for the 99% that did not work?

    A common mistake i see all the time is people using "Trim to Root" and commenting on the blogs home pages which don't even have a comment form so of course 99% of the URL's fail.

    Another common one is generating bad emails with no ".com" on the end and all the blogs throw 500 errors and reject it.

    Thx, when running the blog analyzer do you then sort them into different text files for each blog? I thought if you scraped wordpress then you would only get worpress blogs so no need for the analyser or am I wrong?

    Also regarding the 1% this is only for the fast poster is that about right? When ruuning the slow poster its MUCH more but it runs so slow I though it would be faster?

    I can certainly "feel your pain" on this one. I have been struggling with ScrapeBox for awhile now. I absolutely love it but it drives me crazy hearing all of these amazing success stories when I am struggling with it!

    However, I just did a fresh re-install, changed computers, got new private proxies and have been reading like crazy over the last few days and I am happy to say that I am up to about a 35-40%% success rate in BE. That may not sound like much, but I was getting just about 0 prior to this, so I'm heading in the right direction!

    I also extended the timeout a bit for the slow poster and that seemed to help a good deal.

    How many blogs roughly are you able to post to on the slow poster in a day?

    Not too many! I'm using the slow poster right now (BE)... yesterday for example I wanted a good test to see what my rate was... I posted to 247 blogs in about an 8 hour period! Not exactly a big-time spam operation! LOL.

    I am using only one instance of scrapebox... so compared to what was happening prior, I was actually happy with that!

    Today I'll be scraping and trying to post using the fast poster to wordpress... just to see if my success rate grows from where its been in the past.

    I used to get around 1-2% with Fast Poster as well. Then I changed one of the options... forgot what it was as I'm on my gf's laptop, but my success rate sky rocketed to 15-20% for Wordpress blogs. I get around 40% on BlogEngine, and about 30-35% on MovableType.

    I've never used any of these automated tools, and had no problem ranking most of my sites with good old fashioned elbow grease. I use traditional link building methods like article marketing and forum posting. I do use blog commenting but I do it manually and only on high quality, high trafficked, and high ranking blogs.

    Honestly, 1 good PR8 backlink is worth 1000 of those crap Wordpress blog links.

    This software just doesn't impress me.

    Of course, I'm expecting a lot of flack for this post since Scapebox was created by someone in this forum. Nevertheless, I'm never afraid to express my opinion.

    Yea, I hear ya... I do a lot of manual link-building myself, I'd just like to get a "base" with automated tools. I do think there is some value there.

    Also, with Scrapebox, even if you don't use the comment poster there are plenty of others things its useful for... AND you can always use it as a manual poster if you'd like to use more relevant comments.

    Thats funny! Right after I read that, I said, "who'd be stupid enough to do that???" Of course, within the next hour I did it myself and was pulling my hair out until I realized why I was getting ZERO success. It was worth a laugh tho since I didn't spend all day trying to figure it out!

    *never* undersestimate the power of stupidity. Just google gregory despain or one of the default comments that come with sbox sometime and see the hundreds of thousands of comments posted using the app's defaults. We all have brain cramps, but some people are just idiots lol.

    I'm starting to think I'm going to do a fast poster pass and then a manual comment pass. Manual commenting with with thebestspinner open. Just spin, then copy/paste, repeat. That will probably be faster than slow poster. Slow poster has been killing me as well. Too slow for such a little success rate.
