    Well, I have recently purchased scrapebox and as I understand that it's main purpose is to find those sites where you can create your backlinks.

    then how can google find it if you use scrapebox or not? I see that there's some patern from your backlinks because of the footprint you used. but I still think it's legit to have bunch of links from different domains despite they are on the same platform.

    so...any bad stories from using scrapebox? maybe that's what I was asking?

    Spamming backlinks is considered blackhat, which is why google devalued TBPR and those links for a while now. I think when google finds out and consider your backlinks as spam, those links will be devalued.

    It's not the tool that's Blackhat it's the way you use it.
    As a scraper / backlink & PR checker it's second to none.

    You could use it by scraping 1,000's of Blogs and then fast posting a random / spun comment (comment spam) or

    You could use it to find high PR Blogs and then post a comment that's on topic and adds something to the conversation.

    Option one is the easiest and almost totally automatic but leaves you open to getting your IP / Blog blocked by Akismet. Many have had great success with this method so although not as effective as it used to be still works if you know what you're doing.

    Option two takes more time but your comment is much more likely to be approved and you'll not get flagged as spam so much.

    Bottom line is it the gun that kills or the person pulling the trigger?
