    I am looking for actual back links to an specific web site...

    Is there a way to find actual back links to any sites? With Scrapebox?


    I did a run according to the video below, but it gave me pages that include the keywords from the domain word name, but not exactly a link to the domain..

    There could be many websites with the word "widget" and even a link from the word "widget", but that doesn't always mean they would be talking or linking to the site "widget .com" ....


    Is there a way to find actual back links to a site? Rather than finding links that contain the word of the domain name?


    This is the video example I followed:

    Scrapebox is not the best tool to find backlinks to any site. Use ahrefs instead or majestic SEO.

    If you want the turn key solution ahrefs or majestic will give you more.

    But the video you mentioned, I don't know how you are getting the results you are saying, it works fine for me.

    If you scrape for

    "http://www.domain.com/page.htm" -site:domain.com

    it should only give you results that have the http://www.domain.com/page.htm on it. Anchor text has nothing to do with it.

    Then you run the link checker to see if http://www.domain.com/page.htm is a live link on the page. If it is, then you have a backlink, if its not then its not.

    I sent it to tech support... see what they say..

    So for I ran the link checker with the harvested domains....

    I put in the link checker:

    <a href= "http://yourdomain.com"><a href= "http://wwww.yourdomain">

    And it got me links from the keyword "yourdomain", but didn't see links to the website yourdomain.com

    Maybe if I look further I might find links to the actual domain, but so far there are a lot more links of the keyword to a different place... I would like to filter them out and see if I get links to the domain...

    Scrapebox is great for just about everything but this.

    You will need Ahrefs to check the backlinks.

    I got it to work... for as much as it would work, or for as much links a website would have.

    Scraper V1 and V2 did pull different results.. V2 had links from the same website however, seems like I got better results from scraper V1 on this one scrape..

    I used this format to search for initial links:

    "%kw%" -site:%kw%
    "www.%kw%" -site:%kw%
    "http://www.%kw%" -site:%kw%
    "%http://kw%" -site:%kw%

    Replaced kw with the website you are looking links from...

    Then... the back link checker..

    <a href= "http://yourdomain.com">
    <a href= "http://wwww.yourdomain.com">

    ^^^^ This didn't give much results on actual back links, but showed me links from a keyword "yourdomian"

    Then I used this format on the link checker:

    http://yourdomain.com
    http://wwww.yourdomain.com

    ^^^ and I had better luck on finding some actual back links from scraper V1... scraper V2 gave me some back links, plus a bulk of internal links from the webiste pointing to other website pages...

    Maybe the website I am searching doesn't have that many back links to begin with, but it is interesting the different results from Scrapebox V1 and V2..


    Could Ahref do a better job? If I decide to pay for it I'll do an update on this...

    Ahref would be more of a turn key solution for you that didn't require the work you are doing. If you wanted to dig and dig and dig with Scrapebox you could put together a great list of a sites backlinks. There are ways you can manipulate the search engines into giving you what you want, combine that with other helpful tools like the backlink checker addon, link checker, page scanner etc.. and you can get a great data set.

    However at the end of the day the question only you can answer is, is it worth your time to use Scrapebox to get this data, or is "less expensive" to just pay ahrefs or someone else to give you a good set of data.

    I mean I am one of the worlds most avid Scrapebox users, but its like anything, if I have to spend 5 hours doing something and I can pay someone else $20 to do it for me, Im paying $20 hands down. It just depends on how deep you want to do go. But like you said, the site may not even have that many backlinks.

    If you are uncertain go to majestic seo and check out their tool, it will give you a good overall picture, you can also look at the fresh and historical index and get a good idea of a sites potential and then go from there.

    That said it depends on how important it is, because I guarantee I can do a more thorough job of it with Scrapebox, given enough time, then the data you get back from any paid service.

    Its all give an take, minimum effective dose to get done what you need to get done is the key to remember.
