    Hi all,

    this question goes to all (experienced) Scrapebox users:
    How are you finding relevant blogs?

    I mean, when you have a list of keywords, most of the blogs just don't fit your keyword/niche. Most of the times, the cause is that this blogs just got spammed with any kind of comments already, where at least one comment contains your keyword, yet has nothing to do with the site.

    I tried the keywords both with and without quotes. That doesn't change much.

    I know, many people tell that the site you have a backlink from must not be from your niche, and I believe in that too.
    The thing is that there are customers out their from whom it is important to have niche relevant comments. So I need to figure out a way how to accomplish that.

    Please let me know,
    Steve

    Depends a lot on how much time you want to spend vetting the harvest results.

    You could try making your keyword/phrases more laser-targetted, that will help.

    Sbox's KW scraper is a great tool but sometimes it will give you less targetted/relevant results. So maybe avoid using it, or prune the results a lot if you do use it.

    If you really want to winnow the harvest, export the results to a spreadsheet and only keep those URL's that have relevant words in the URL string. You could end up with jack for results, but it would be very targetted very quickly.

    Sounds like a good idea to harvest blogs, then sort out the relevant ones by keyword. I think I might try to figure out how you can use for example Excel to remove lines which do not have a given string in them, should definitely be doable I believe. If someone knows how, your feedback would be much appreciated.

    Also, any other kind of feedback for this question is still very welcome.

    Regards,
    Steve

    Thank you for this tip, but it doesn't seem to work.
    It works when I type it in Google for example, but SB doesnt grab any blog. Like it wouldn't interpret that correctly.

    Regards,
    Steve

    There is no reason why it wouldn't work, Scrapebox uses the exact same search box that you would use by going to google.com. There musn't have been any blogs for the keywords you entered.

    well, thx for asking this question. I though I am the only dumb one have this question ;) BTW, how much time you spending (roughly) on 1) finding keyword, 2) filtering keyword, 3) drafting comment in each new site? Just curious... thx a lot.

    Nah man I have the same problem, and I've used a whole shit ton of search operators, including the usual "intitle" and "allintitle" ones. I still get a bunch of unrelated blogs. I do get relevant ones too, but I feel ya.

    I really feel that those operators do very little; hardly any of the harvested sites have the exact match when I put the keywords in quotes. Either way I still love my Scrapebox.

    Home Page:
    Google doesn't allow to much searches including operators. Your proxies, even private, will get banned fast when using operators.

    It seems that the Wordpress radio button returns more relevant blogs, unlike BlogEngine, which returns a less relevant list of URL's. Just need to filter the lists..thats all. It's something that you want to do anyway..look for quality links and drop the quantity!
