    Well I really got shocked to see that Scrapebox actually brings visits. For me they are nothing but a bunch of spam links created by this software and I had a horrific experience while trying to promote my website through such links. Google completely banned my site and I was thrown out of first page rankings for several keywords. But trying on Fiverr was a smart move, even though with no sales, the best part is you gained the first page ranking due to Fiverr's DA. All the best! Do keep us posted on the progress...

    To see where the clicks are coming from. Are they search engine spiders/bots or actual ppl.

    Ok, I know exactly where this traffic comes from. It's from blog admins. I did a test with a bit.ly link forwarding to my own domain and then did Google analytics. Here's just a few days of results. You'll note the 100% bounce rate coming from the blog sites. Even the "direct" clicks have high bounce rates. The conclusion is that you're spamming people's blogs then they're clicking on your link just to see who the hell you are. They're not interested in what you're selling specifically but if a shotgun approach works for you then this technique might work but as a targeted source of traffic, forget it.

    Here are results I got from promoting an online classified ad website I run which BTW normally gets me 10-15% bounce rate when promoted properly.

    Very true.. And not just fiverr, freelancing is gradually dying off. Upwork is going down too.

    Doesn't Google analytics tell you which ips are spiders? I thought they did. I see you posted your analytics. If it does, did you see a lot of spiders/bots on it?

    That's excellent data thanks for posting.
    I don't think the auto poster works for driving traffic.
    The manual poster style does work I have used it before with a success.

    The ultimate use of the mass back-links para-sites is to boost something that links back to your site or page.

    For example :

    If you have a post in niche sub reddit with a link back to your own page with that niche keyword.
    Then boost the reddit post with backlinks, you then get the juice back to your own site.
    Same for a facebook page with a link.
    Or with a twitter account / profile with a link

    Yeah, I agree but the only reason mass linking will work for those is because they reward posts with lots of traffic with more organic traffic, even if the traffic is from spam sources like this. Similar to what happened with my YouTube video, as long as I was spam linking, I was getting more organic traffic from YouTube suggestions. However, once I stopped, the traffic died down to almost one or two viewers per day.

    I'll have to try manual linking. But would you just post with your money site when doing those? Also didn't the last Google update pretty well make backlinking of any type virtually irrelevant now that they're just using AI to determine your ranking?

    A really interesting experiment to be honest. No sales though which is kinda sad...

    I know how dirty it sounds but most of your competition is probably using dirty tricks to steal your company SERPS. Targeting your name and/or business name. Talking shit on social media. Things of that nature.

    I didn't even realize he opened a BST related to this until now. I actually reported the BST for being ambiguous and misleading in its claims about being "safer" and "boosting your ranking on any platform." We will see what the reviewing mods think.

    I spent my time reviewing all 15 page. OP says he will provide updates on the rankings, talks about how blasting the gig made his ranking higher in Google, but then OP has not provided an official update from himself about the rankings of the Fiverr thread he blasted, but I am happy to.

    OP created 2 nearly identical Fiverr gigs for testing purposes. This information is all supplied in the OP, I am not revealing anything he has not already.

    Here are OP's gigs:

    [​IMG]


    Ahrefs results for I will do an email verification service (the page he blasted with Scrapebox)

    [​IMG]

    Ahrefs results for I will do a email verification service (the page he did not blast with Scrapebox)

    [​IMG]

    We can see that spamming backlinks with Scrapebox does still boost page authority. This has never been questioned, from my understanding. This just shows how easily these numbers can be manipulated with garbage links.

    But what did we all come for? GOOGLE RANKINGS. That's what OP is showing off in his original post. I have tons of browsers with tons of different IP addresses, and I took my time to check them all. Proxies, real IP, incognito, Chrome, Firefox.

    The keyword OP is using in his original test is fiverr check email list accurate, no quotes.

    First, it's important to understand that OP's gig he blasted contains the words "check your email list is accurate" in the URL. The gig he did not blast has the phrase "do a email verification service" for it's URL. So, right away, we can already point to a HUGE reason why Google would rank the site he blasted over the other one. The keywords are in the URL! It's comparing Apples to Oranges. But OK. Forget that. Let's just see where it stands today, since OP has not given that information.

    Page 1:

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, the page OP blasted is NOT on the first page. The page with NO page links, and only natural page authority is ranking HIGHER than the page OP blasted. So where is OP's ranking now? Error: Result not found. The page OP blasted is completely removed from the Google rankings from 10 different IP addresses in different countries using 4 different browsers in incognito mode checked.

    Of course, even OP knew this would happen, but it's just really unfortunate that OP did not provide this similar update, especially now that he is offering a sales thread related to this service. Of course most people are not going to go through 16 pages for updates. Of course most link buyers don't even understand what they are buying. I pointed this out to OP a month ago and he dismissed me completely.

    For testing? Absolutely. Always good to test methods to see if there is anything that changed. But the results are exactly what anyone experienced in this industry already knew.

    Here is a bonus. I checked the Fiverr "rankings" for email verification services, and the evidence suggests that this type of blast does not help boost rankings within Fiverr either. Fiverr seems to "dance" the rankings, as I got slightly different results upon searching multiple times. But here, you can see that 1) The service WITHOUT a blast outranks the service WITH a blast. And several other services with no reviews outrank both of these services.

    Basically what I tried to explain earlier. People called me bitter for that. I just think his thread is misleading and doing a BST after that is just not good for this forum.

    Thank you man for taking the time of detailing that.
