    Am interested in getting this when I first saw the post last year on the initial beta version.

    As it stands what are the success rates currently for the built-in decaptcha or is there still a requirement for paid for services, typically if this is the case what sort of $$ is this costing you a month?

    Cheers

    I get between 15-30% success rate on auto with zero typing or paid solving

    what sort of numbers are you hitting for those rates in terms of submissions?

    what about platforms, any more successful than others?

    ...just trying to get an idea of on costs should i decide to go paid route.

    Recognition is pretty bad at the moment. I scrapped a list of 340k urls (all forums which should be recognized by scrapeboard). The footprints were laser targeted so I believe that no more than 10% of those should have been "false forums".

    Scrapeboard recognized around 80k of those to be forums. When I took these 80k successfully recognized forums and started registering on them, I got only around 1500 successful registrations and after checking for live links I ended up with a little more than 1000 profiles.

    Huge potential in the software, but A LOT needs to be done and fixed.

    You can train the software, but this was tested out of the box. Right now there's not much information on training either.

    I typically break my profile lists into groups of 2k. If I let SB do everything by itself I will get anywhere from 300-600 backlinks. These are forums that I already know exist and are recognized by SB. BTW I scrape lists with box not board. Board's scraping seems a bit finnicky at times.

    Solving captchas would easily push it over 90%. So it just depends on if you want to do the typing or spend the money on a service.

    This goes for the platforms that SB supports for the internal solving. So far SB does exactly what I expect it to do. It will solve a little chunk for you and save you time/money in that regard. It makes the whole process relatively quick and easy.

    If it continues getting the same support that scrapebox received then it will be quite a beast eventually.

    Well, If you slap on a footprint, grab a big list, and pop it in then yeah a lot will fail. I've personally checked a lot of links in those kinds of scrapes and it's junk that you probably couldn't register on even if you did it manually.

    There's millions of forums you will never register on no matter what. This is due to many reasons beyond any program's control. If the site even works, it might have some ridiculously obscure text captcha that you'd have to spend 30 minutes googling to figure out. Even then they might have administrator approval turned on and that guy only checks the queue every other leap year. Tons of forums are just flat out broken so you don't even get that far.

    Can't really expect scrapeboard to know the dimensions of a piston in a 67 limited edition chevy or some minor character in a Japanese children's show that aired in 1978.

    I think I'm gonna buy right now.. I don't plan to do anything other than account creation with it. I am currently paying a company to do forum posts and they are charging me a dollar per account creation, so I think this thing will pay for it self in no time.

    That is no junk list. Xrumer can register on those just fine. As I said it's laser targeted and contains mybb, ipbb, vbulletin, smf, phpbb and expression engine urls only. I also mentioned that it recognized 80k of those urls to be one of these boards.

    Internal captcha was turned on, but manual and paid captcha both on off. Internal captcha is very bad at the moment as you can see by the low % of registered accounts. If one would turn the paid captchas on, you would surely raise the percentage, but right now that doesn't seem to be a good option as you would pay just too much for the captchas.

    So far the scrapebaord interface is very intuitive just like scrapebox... I'll update after I get done scraping proxies and finish account creation. I'll probably plugin deathbycaptcha..

    If a website is down, broken, changed, or the admins don't ever approve accounts then no program is going to be putting a link there. You'll find plenty of crap sites in a scrape.

    And no, SB isn't xrumer. Only xrumer is xrumer. For 97$ SB is a good investment and will most likely be worth 10 times that by the end of the year assuming they support it like they have scrapebox.

    For the purpose of creating profile links SB will be a lot cheaper and easier to use. It's going to be perfect for most IMers who shouldn't be buying xrumer.

    Agreed on that one completely. Scrapebox was the most supported software I've used, and that's how it goes with scrapeboard too. It's still a good investment and will probably be priced higher by the time it works good.

    However SB is a competitor to xrumer and in time, yes it should be just as good as xrumer at least for profile links. Else what's the point? If you're doing it, do it right.

    I have a lot of faith in the scrapeboard team and don't regret my purchase because I know it will get improved on a constant basis, unlike xrumer which gets updated maybe once or twice a year.

    Update

    Ok, ran my first scrapeboard blast.. I am just using it to sign up at forums and it did ok. Out of the 794 forums I scraped it signed me up at 34 forums.. LOL, there was a gay porn forum in there for some reason, not sure how that happened from my root keyword.

    The keyword scraper was not working for some reason so i just imported from google keyword tool. It also did not use my deathbycaptcha account for some reason.. Software seems to be a little glitchy, but overall I think it has alot of potential. I'd say I am satisified with it for what I'll be using it for.

    Bought it, cant even get it to work properly. I registered in like 3 forums in an hour. Sent an email to the developer, never got a reply.

    Doesn't grab emails from your inbox to confirm them, in advanced or easy mode.

    Very interesting thread for someone like me who's considering buying it, think I'll wait a little longer until the prog has matured a bit more.

    I must be doing something wrong, I can't get this thing to solve a single captcha even when I run manual. Got this thing on my vps.

    Interesting info on here....what has been the development been like in terms of updates etc or is this dead and comes as is...been very impressed with Sbox support and updates, so guess I need to know if this is still being developed on a regular basis or is it as is and will stay that way?
