    I'm back again and going to make another attempt at bringing my 30 UV/day hardly no SEO blog back to life. I have about 30 articles and my blog have been up since July 21st. Made an article for about 24 days and stopped. Tried to target keywords in almost every article.

    Made $4 last month total and kind of got discouraged. I went on Fiverr and paid for 1k backlinks and the guy sent me the spreadsheet of the URLs. The sites were all lame looking (like .uks) and stuff for the most part. They were blogs that seemed very worthless and contained almost nothing.

    So I just paid for ScrapeBox, and can't wait to get home to download and activate it. Being that the fiverr gig was complete crap and didn't really do anything for my blog (I don't even see the backlinks when using Yahoo Site Explorer), will Scrapebox be simple to use to do a better job than he did? Or will I always get a bunch of crap links?

    You should be able to do a better job than he did. You acutally care about your site, he just wants to get the links blasted and collect his $4.

    You can do things like use footprints to find .edu and .gov blogs, and you will also be able to check and sort by PR then delete anything below your standards; although of course finding AA .edu or .gov blogs is pretty rare... so look at manually commenting any good .edu/.gov and/or high PR links you find...

    I just assume if the link wasn't autoapprove and I don't manually comment, even a successful submission won't get me a link unless I had a damn good generic comment.

    Careful blasting your main site, though.

    Thanks for the reply man, MUCH appreciated!! Now you say finding AAs are pretty rare, how much work does it take to find one using ScrapeBox? I'm hoping I can start making good profit, time's getting a bit too tough right now and I have a lot of knowledge with my niche, so I want to put it to best use.

    I've ordered a few fiverr gigs and only 1 was well worth it. It involved youtube views. 1 gig I was plain ripped off and the others were ineffective. You need to be careful and work with people that have positive review and have been on fiverr for a while.

    1] Are all those 30 articles on your site unique?
    --> If not, then pls write unique articles

    --> If yes, then are they SEO/keyword optimized?
    --> If yes, then you are ready for offsite SEO.

    --> If no, then use the search bar, and search for "keyword research" and "onpage SEO"

    2] Don't expect the backlinks to show up on yahoo site explorer right away, it takes time for the backlinks to get indexed by the search engines.

    3] If you have time, there is nothing like doing SEO for your beloved website yourself. If you really want to outsource it from fiverr, again use the search bar and search for "best fiverr gigs"

    4] Don't use scrapebox to blast to auto approve lists directly on your website

    Good luck
    Chip

    1. Yep, all of the content on my site is unique. My content was written by me and from my own personal knowledge and experience. Didn't need to google or search/verify anything while writing my content. Also includes some screenshots as well for step by step assistance.

    I can't really answer this 100% because I'm still a bit mixed on how this works. I say this because I get a lot of questions from Yahoo Answers that I see asked a lot, and I try to find keywords based on their question. If the keyword is a lot of local searches per month and low competition, exact, I'll write an article targeting that keyword. I'd say about 60-70% of my blog contains articles targeted for keywords like this.
    Would Traffic Travis be the right tool to back up my thoughts on that? A lot of my pages got A+, and B+ ratings for certain keywords.

    2. The backlinks I got from fiverr were about 2-3 weeks ago. Is it supposed to take THAT long?
    4. If I'm understanding that correctly, does that mean don't blast auto approve blogs with the direct link to my blog?

    Thanks for this reply!

    There is a learning curve to any new tool and ScrapeBox is no exception, but master it and you will not only have a great backlink builder for your site, but also a harvester of many different things that you may find invaluable in time.

    I agree that many fiverr gigs are crap, although you will find some pearls there, $5 is a small price to pay to find out.

    Now that you have Scrapebox you have another great advantage to your journey. Check out your competition based on the keywords you are using. You can then grab the backlinks your competition have built. You can always use free proxies until you get the hang of the program but once you are ready I would suggest purchasing private proxies to speed up the process and to give you less headache. I would search around this forum for Scrapebox tips as there are some great tips on custom footprints and also tips on how to use the program. I have a few gigs that I places on Fiverr. Some work out but others the clients are too demanding for 5 bucks. You could always post some gigs up to do with Scrapebox to help you gain some experience and also to help with the cost of the program :).

    I have to say that my experience of fiverr is that it is complete crap. I have paid for 5/6 gis now, everything from article submissions, scrapebox and xrumer blasts and PR submissions.
    Yes, I get the obligatory email with all of the links on but 9 weeks down the line from my first gig (the scrapebox blast) I have seen no movement at all on any of my 3 sites.

    In fact one of them jumped up to page 2 of G after a blast, stayed there for a week and then moved down to page 8 where it has been for the past 7 weeks.

    Fortunately, all of these sites are used for testing so their performance doesn't affect my earnings.

    The thing that makes me laugh most is that the people posting the gigs want instant feedback and yet the best I can give them is "they did the job super fast" because it is impossible to see results after a few days.

    As a lot of people on here say, how good can this actually be if it is only $5 (just £3.12 in the UK!) for each gig.

    My twopence.
