    The title says it almost.

    Is it possible to use scrapebox to find backlinks to a domain from a particular website, say cnn, technet or so?

    I only want to know if these links exist there all other backlinks doesn't matter.

    You mean finding a page external links? if yes it is possible.

    Or do you mean live link checker? it can be done with scrapebox as well.

    Use the link extractor addon and scrape external links.

    However that will only show you links that are indexed in google.... scrapebox doesn't have its own spiders/data base like aHrefs, Majestic, Moz, etc. so you'll only get to see whats in the google index. It will pull all links it can, and then you can simply use a text editor to manually search/find the exact domain you're trying to match. I'm pretty sure that's about the most you'll get out of scrapebox for the task you described.

    Well what I want is this.

    I want to findout if mydomain.com has a link from cnn.com I don't need to know about all the other links.

    Can this be done, if so how?

    UPS, FORGOT: That's from expired domains... so it would need to use Google or something I guess.

    Loopline will probably come in and give a better answer but I think you can use the addon "link extractor" to get a list of a websites internal pages. Then take the final list and bring it into "backlink checker" to get any links pointing to those internal pages. You'll need to register a couple different accounts at Moz to get more than one API key.

    Thank you very much. I already tried the link extractor and it seems not to work with expired domains. Also there seems not to be a way to enter an expired domain somwhere there and enter for instant cnn.com somwhere and get the software to look if one of the expired domains are actually listed at cnn.com!

    And when you have aprox 50k expired domains on your list it would come handy to get something that can do this for you ;)

    I don't really know what you're trying to do but this is how I use Xenu. I take the list of backlinks that I got from the "backlink checker" addon. Then I put the links into Xenu and it tells me which links are dead. Then I take the dead links and check to see if their domains are available. I then look at the metrics to decide if they will make a good PBN.

    okay I will try to explain it a little better then..sorry :)

    Well, say I have 10 expired domains now I want to know if any of these 10 expired domains have a link from say cnn.com, nytimes.com etc.

    I agree if it was just 10 domains, I could easely put them into google and do a manual check, but I have 50K domains and the list is growing, that's why I look for something that can do this automatically for me.

    Using your above formula: Footprint = site:qv.com Keywords= link:bloomberg.com link:cnn.com link:.... Then repeat for every domain. Surely if you combined the process for all 50k expired domains the data would all be mashed together, unless you exported it to a text file on a per domain basis automatically. Maybe filter the expired domains list down a little more for quality.

    So add your footprint: site:expireddomain1.com

    Then I think you are trying to see if the links to these sites are indexed, by using the link parameter, so you make a list of all of the domains you are checking links from, and in Notepad++ find and replace http:// with link:http://, and you have your list to paste into the keyword field.
