    As a noob on these forums I am going to try to set a good example for other noobs and make another good post. Not puttin this in the YT section because the scraped comments are good content and can be used for many BH purposes.
    Code:
    [URL]http://www.youtube.com/comment_search?q=make+money+online[/URL]
    So from here you can search ALL youtube comments for any string :D

    Hope the smart ppl around here realize this is a pretty sick tool. BTW I believe this just went live either today (March 16) or yesterday. Thank you Youtube!

    As far as what to do with this, search for comments in your niche, scan through the results and look for good ones. Load a few of these into PAR and it will help make a good seed comment to use for promoting whatever your promoting.

    Hope this helped some of you,

    Bump for some more info.

    Trying a semi popular keyword like "gaga", I noticed that I could not get many pages of results. I tried adding 200 to the end of the url to see page 200, but all I get is the info "Searching for comments is temporarily unavailable". Then when I try a lower number like 5, it works again. What kind of tool can I use if I need to scrape thousands of comments?

    API, you have to define the search and it will find videos with those keywords, then iterate all the videos selected and grabbing each of the comments.
    If you want I can help with coding, it will help me to play into Youtube API, will be fun.
