    Ok I noticed after trying may footprints to find the 404 expired tumblr accounts non of the work. With that said however I am able to scrape many tumblr accts and some with really good metrics and backlinks.

    The problem is what do you use to check if they are expired urls? Using scrapebox to check them is a major fail. The alive checker, vanity checker and the page scanner dont work. I created my own checker using ubot but it crashes or throws errors after X amount of checked accounts.

    What is everyone using now to find if the tumblr account is expired or not?

    The page source code for a tumblr that can't be registered vs one that can is the exact same. So Scrapebox can only go based on markers in the page. But tumblr is so widely used its hard to find them as the good ones are all blocked (yes Im exaggerating not all of them are blocked, but its a massive amount.)

    So then you have to try and register them, which scrapebox won't do.

    I am not having a problem finding or registering them. My problem lies with trying to check ones that are 404 versus live accts / users. I have made a checker in ubot professional edition but it just crashes all the time and not worth the headache. tumblr hunter wont let me check the usernames / urls I have already scraped.

    Scrape box will help you to find the available domains

    yeah, basically you could run scrapbox, which will give you tons of false positives as mentioned above, and then you need something to try and register them. Or find/build a tool that does it in 1 step.

    Domain Hunter Gatherer can be used for finding available tumblr accounts, it checks that the account is actually available rather than just checking for a 404 error.
