    I've been looking at the addons for scrapebox, and I'm wondering if you can set it to harvest urls in the description of youtube videos. Does it?

    You can make a custom grabber, which is built into scrapebox. It's located under "Grab / Check"

    Is there a limit to how many video descriptions you can scrape for a keyword?

    No! You would first scrape the youtube video urls and only then use the custom grabber on those urls to scrape your necessary data.

    Just check out below video and all your questions will be answered.

    Now you got me wondering what your intended purpose is with this OP. I find myself saying, "Why would someone want to scrape the urls from youtube video descriptions?" Yet, I cannot posit an answer. Very intriguing indeed.

    I suppose you must be developing something that will easily identify recurring links, and then you will go to those videos and de-compile the full method, but of course only for the winners. You seem smart. I like that about you. The scrapebox solution is perfect for you in these regards. If you're planning on doing something else, and don't mind sharing, drop a PM. Ok if not. Good luck though OP!
