    I am fairly proficient at Scrapebox. I have been using it for a few months now. But I have one nagging problem that I just can't figure out.

    Can someone please help me?????

    It involves complex search terms (usually multiple strings of text). I can get the results I expect (and want) if I do the search in Google. But if I input the exact same search into SB I ALWAYS get just a few results returned.

    Example:

    In Google, I enter ----> "how to lose weight fast" +"count calories"

    Google says 755,000 results

    I put the same string (exactly) into SB Harvester, and it returns 282 results. It doesn't matter if I put the string in the top and click "custom" search or if I blank it out and put the string in the keywords section. It returns the same results.

    It should return 1000 results, shouldn't it? Can someone explain this?...or better yet, can someone explain to me how to get "complex" searches like this to work in SB?

    Scrapebox does not return all results at once. You need to do the same search several times and you would discover that the unique url results would increase. Do not just stop after doing one search

    Do you even know what you are talking about? If SB (or any search engine) returned different results every time you did the same search, it would be totally worthless. SB does return all the results at once and you do not have to do the search over several times.

    Come on guys...no on else has this problem?

    Come on people. With everyone on this forum spouting off (at times) about their SB exploits, are you telling me that no one can answer this question?

    pretty sure it has to do with the fact that when you're using google, it does a search for those phrased keywords in all the operators and scrapebox, unless you define the operator, only searches in the body.

    i could be wrong and haven't done much research on your issue but that's the first thing i could see be an issue.

    anyone else with some insight?

    I've come across the exact same problem.
    I am just wondering whether it is me who is doing something wrong or whether it really is Scrapebox

    I do not know the answer to the specific question however, this is where your keyword lists come into the equation.

    Using your example above if you simply input the letters of the alphabet into the keywords (one per line) box whilst placing your search terms in the top box you will see many thousands of results for your footprint.
