    Just started using it, I took 1000 wordpress links, after posting SB told me that 46% of links were posted succesfully - That's pretty good number I think! But Later I checked to see how many real backlinks- with link checker I got and from those 460 valid ones what SB told turns out only 30 of them have been auto-approved! Did I did something wrong or It should be like that?

    From my experience with sb, which isn't a ton, 3% auto-approve is about right from wp blogs

    Thanks :) Do other blog platforms have higher % of auto-approve? If so which ones?

    If you are just harvesting > posting > checking, then that's about normal.
    But you will likely get banned by aksimet before long doing things that way, which will result in around 0.1% success with wordpress from then on.

    There are far more efficient ways of doing things, just takes time to learn your way around the application, i'm currently hitting around 50% success rates atm, and working on improving it, and ive been using scrapebox full time for a few months now.

    Yeah but when you get banned by askimet - that means they only ban your Ip/Url - right? SO I can just use any url I want - then when I get banned just change my ip/url and do again.. -This way I could actually make a list of auto-approved blogs where Then Later on I can post my other sites normally - RIGHT?

    A couple things to remember (or learn if you are new and didn't know):

    1.) Akismet only applies to WP blogs.
    2.) Other blog types (BE & MT) tend to have a higher pct of them that are auto-approved.
    3.) ***Big Note*** - Whichever blogs you post to, you should always check the backlinks immediately after your run. This will tell you which ones were auto-approve. Save this list and keep adding to it until you have a list of several thousand auto-approve posts that you can get links from (on demand).

    I get around 10% auto approved each blast.

    It comes down to proper tweaking the settings for your needs. Test, test, tweak, tweak, study, study more, act, act, test, test, you got it.

    Building up your list of blogs of any type on which your link stuck is the best bit of advice I can see for SB.
    Yes - right away do a link check (its the ping mode then check links) bottom right panel of SB.
    Export links right away and build files with links like that.
    You can chop and change the files later and it saves MONTHS of repeated work.

    It really depends on where you got this list. If you harvest lists using the harvester then yes the autoapprove are going to be as low as 3-5%. If you find blogs that have been spammed or at least have a decent number of comments on them and you comment on them,autoapprove are higher.

    Last blast i did, i used a list of spammed blogs and the autoapprove was around 15-20%.
    Apart from that, there are several factors that can take this number down such as :
    1. Proxies (akismet is the enemy here)
    2. Emails ([email protected], [email protected] etc ). Do not use such emails.
    3. Names or anchor texts. There are plugins,modules or comment forms in general that have blacklists of words and can automatically reject what you have posted.

    To sum up,

    3-4% is ok if you are trying to find blogs that are highly related to your topic. If you get a list of spammed blogs then the link juice goes down but the number of autoapprove links goes up.
    Maybe you could use the link extractor plugin and check for outbound links. If they are too low, chances are that they are not autoapprove and the owners will not accept your comment..so its a waste of time.

    hmmm... I'm kind of in the same boat and this post kind of answers my question... however let me ask this... I ran 55 blogs with pretty current posts. I created some really good content that applied and after I did the link checker... status was not found on all of them.

    Am I missing something???

    personally I believe scrapebox is better used as a tool to find high PR blogs that you can then go and post manually. finding 100k pr0 blogs and autoposting to them although not totally useless is not as good as posting on a few big pr trusted blogs

    One thing that I've found, and I'm not sure if it's just me or the settings I use in scarebox or what.

    But I've found that if I comment to, say a 1000 blogs. Then probably about 500 of them will be successful and the other 500 will fail. So what I do is export the failed-to-post blogs and comment on them again, and usually about half of them will be successful. I just keep doing that until the same 50-100 blogs return as failed.

    I guess I could use the slow poster, but that takes so freaking long.

    Also, to get around Akismet, you can register a random domain, such as a .info. Set webhosting up for it, then create a 301 redirect in the .htaccess to your actual site. It should direct the backlink/pr to the redirected site. Although some people believe that it doesn't work or that it doesn't pass the 'full' link juice. You can do your own research there.

    It's absolutely normal. Since it seems that you're just starting with SB, my suggestion is NOT to ping your backlinks, no matter what others say since the growth is way more natural over time. Also, using blogeng1ne is a way safer bet as far as I'm concerned, mostly in terms of approval rate. HTH.

    I can tell you some things that i do and some things i dont do! It really depends on preferences!

    1. Dont ping! Waste of time (you can do other things at that time). In additiion, imagine a blog/website that its like 1-2months old. You create 1000 backlinks in one day and you ping them all. Thats not a red flag, thats a red g-string...dont do it:)
    2. When i start building links for a website i want two things. A list of many crappy blogs and a list of good blogs that will pass good link juice and i also want numbers. You cant 10000 backlinks from PR4-5 and above in 2 months though (that will stick too) at least if you have other things to do apart from using sb.
    -So get a list of scrapped blogs that are related to your theme. Get Everything that has 4-5 PR or above and leave nice comments on them.Dont bother if you see no comments or no outbound links(use SB plugins to check these things too)
    -Have a big master file with crappy spammed blogs(they still give power and link juice) and post generic comments using faster commenting function.
    -Scrape some high PR forums and use imacros or whatever to make a profile.
    - When you feel bored about getting nofollow backlinks, start posting to **************** blogengine! There are some good ones!

    Repeat everytime you have free time and update your website. Backlinks=votes. If your website is not updated and its not that good, you should not get backlinks (natural ones) in the first place.
