    If you don't wanna read my frustration with scrapebox, skip to the "cliffnote version" below:

    I have Scrapebox and used to use to often. I stopped using it for like, i dunno a year.. And over the past few months and went through and tried to clean up my lists that were a year old. I have ran the blog analyzer to cut out bad and unknown and non open pages. I just finished running 499000 URLs. I admit, I half assed this run (but I have done another 500k run a month ago, similar results). I had total 2.2 mil URLs, split them into 499k in like 6 files so SB can handle it. Anyways, out of 1 of my 499k lists, about 75k posted successfully. It took like 2 days to run this list, however I paused to give my network a break for a bit lol. I had 88, yes only 88, auto approves. 75k sites, 88 of them AA.

    I forgot to turn on proxies in SB (I know I know, i was in a hurry). So yeah, I was hit by akismet after like 1k sites. It's ok, I can change my IP. However, hopefully the domain is alright lmao. So since I wasn't using proxies, I had a higher success rate of 75k posted. Last time, using like 1200 good proxies (tested before running), I had about 40k successful. However, I only snag about 30-80 auto approves each run. (remember I have 6 different lists of 499k in each list).

    I know this is the WHITEHAT section, I am getting to my point so dont flame whitehatters.

    My point is, Scrapebox is just flat out SUCKING anymore. I may harvest fresh lists, however out of tens of thousands of "OPEN" pages that blog analyzer says is open and a recognized platform.... You would think that I would get more than 80 AA sites out of 40k-70k posted sites. So overall, from what I am seeing after many runs, is that why the fuck would I harvest harvest harvest, for weeks just to build a fresh list of 100k open recognized sites, post to them, and get 80 backlinks. End Result - Finding open AA wordpress sites is a lot more sparse.

    This is why I like forum profiles, because they backlinks are generally instant. I can run xrumer or my custom list in SENuke and have a few thousand backlinks instantly after posting. However, many say that forum profiles are difficult to get indexed now and are as powerful as they used to be.


    Cliffnote Version --->
    --- So I got to thinking. I remember back in the day, finding guestbooks and those open chats found on sites (they kept an archive page of the chats).

    I am looking for new platforms. Like platforms I can use a google dork to find. Maybe "submit your link" "platform name" or whatever.. either to leave a comment, or submit your link for directories.. I am just curious of some other popular platforms that could generate thousands of good quality websites to get backlinks from, that are also generally auto-approve.

    That's fine but I am finding edu and gov backlinks manually, search in Google and yahoo along with some method.

    I appreciate your reply, however those are common forums. As I mentioned, I use forums and have my own custom list of a few thousand forums I have pre-loaded into senuke for clients. I also have xrumer, and tons of forums I have harvested there. I can get 10k+ forum profile (and/or forum post) backlinks in a day. (Not that I would, just saying I could do that much if I wanted to).

    I am looking for not so common things. Like a popular platform that allows people to add their website to theirs, or a directory/wiki/bookmarking/ect., platform footprint.

    The key is diverse backlinks. Just Wordpress, blogengine, moveable type, pligg, SMF, vBulletin, Expression Engine, and phpBB backlinks don't cut it. They are the most common spammed platforms. Not saying a handful of good/high PR sites of those platforms I mentioned are worthless, but I feel they shouldn't make up more then 1/2 of your backlinks.

    Someone has to know what I am talking about. It is rarely talked about, footprints for: wiki sites, bookmarking, article, directories, ect.
