    Title says it all really,

    I bought it about 5 days before penguin hit. I know its still useful, I just don't want to mess with it until I fully understand how it works and what exactly its effects are.

    I even ran a free thread giving people blasts to monitor the effect on their websites - none took a serious move either way and when i only know 1 action of their SEO campaign its kind of hard to tell what happened...

    Thanks

    Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere. :p

    Avoiding AA lists from forums
    Writing very well spun comments (using a spinner, takes 20 minutes to write a MASSIVE spin block comment)
    Setting OBL <= 100
    Setting PR >= 1

    Favouring none auto approve sites that require captcha solving.

    I'm farmning these lists in scrapebox, checking them in scrapebox Blog checker (for blogs) or "Alive checker" (for other sites), porting them over to scrapeject, NHSEO or GSA search engine ranker and then posting via that tool

    Why not post with scrapebox?

    Well the slow poster, essp with captcha sites is a frikking pain in the ass. It keeps getting interrupted by cartificate approval requests and error pop-ups.
    The three other tools are socket (or socket like) and do not have these issues.

    Most will carry on spamming auto approve sites becasue they really REALLY want all their links surrounded by porn, viagra and spammy links on shitty PR0 unmoderated websites that will brobably get either de-indexed bu goole (for the crap heaps they are) or taken down by their own webmaster (who realises his precious blog is just a recepticle for ass-hole bottom of the pile links)

    Me? I prefer links you have to work for, links that add value, links that are more likely to last, links with PR, links on sites relavent to my niche, links on sites with low OBL.

    [THOUGHT} Q: What webmaster in his or her right mind leaves auto approve on and allows their site to be filled with links to the worst neighbourhoods on the net?
    A: The owner of a shitty - soon to be deindexed or deleted blog...that's who!

    If those are the links you want...be my guest :)

    PENGUIN is the DEVIL!

    Assuming you are really asking and not just being goofy.... Penguin is the name of the latest Google algorithm update. The one before that was Panda.... so you may hear things like "My site took a hit after Panda" or "Penguin kill my site".

    Each update is characterized by certain "tweaks" they made to try to penalize "black hat seo"... from backlink blitzs to keywords in pages.... the last two updates have made (black hat especially) seo much more difficult.

    I'm just getting back into linkbuilding. But I've used SB for years to extract URLs from sitemaps, scrape internal links, pagerank checker, backlink checker and OBL checker. I use all that stuff at my 9-5 job to research link profile and to harvest and categorize backlinks.

    Now I'm starting to scrape huge lists and search for a few jewels. Today I found 2 PR2, auto-approve blog posts with only one comment on each. Maybe I'm wasting time , but I'll stick with it for a few weeks and see what happens.

    Auto approve PR URL's are far and few between but you will find them. I come across a few dozen a month with the pages having just 1 or 2 comments on them (sometimes just mine!).

    Scrapebox post penguin short method: :D

    Build manually web 2.0 with 100% unique content. Blast those with some Scrapebox AA List.
    Find some d0follow footprints, search for sites from your niche, sort them by PR and manually post on the high PR urls directly to your money site.

    Relax and watch your rankings go nuts. :)

    I just use the blog comments so that I get link anchor diversity. Scrapebox enables me to get the balance in place from all those high pr blog and web 2.0 posts which are anchor exact match.

    When you say use Scrapebox AA list, is that with 80% generic keywords and 20% money keywords? When you have found high PR urls in niche do you use your actual name? Or again 80/20?

    Thanks.

    By the way your lists rock....

    I use it mainly to scrape all kinds of sites and compile my lists; my new (post-Penguin) link building strategy is pretty much in line with everybody else's - unique quality Web 2.0s, strengthened by 2nd tier Wiki links, profile links, etc. I still run social bookmarks and a bit of do follow Wikis directly to my sites though...
