Scrapebox a bit of a waste of time?

    OK so i've been using scrapebox for around 3 weeks now. Have submitted to 1000's of sites, all scraped differently using different spins on comments etc. Even left a few manual on the subjects. Most have been wordpress and blogengine.

    Guess how many links I've gotten from this....... 0, YES 0!!!

    Scrapebox maybe a good tool for various things I agree but it's main selling point is getting links on blogs and at this it fails. Not becuase of the software but becuase people/organisations have got wise to this and have basically blocked them all.

    :(

    It's got me countless backlinks, get yourself an auto approve list. It can take months for google to find them, use the scrapebox check links on a list you have done and it should find your links

    One of my sites got nearly 50k backlinks thanks to Scrapebox.
    Now it doesn't rank for any keyword, but if backlinks is what you're interested in than Scrapebox is your best choice :D
    Which makes me think that not Scrapebox itself but backlinks from auto-approve blogs is a total waste of time.

    Scrapebox is a gret tool for a lot of things.
    It's blog commenting that lost a lot of value.

    Scrapebox is best for indexing new pages, sites, etc.

    That's the best me and my team get out of it for now.

    I am not a fan of commenting blindly so this is not a 100% used method but we do use it to do other things as well. The link checker is the best in the business!

    Agree with it. Every trick has its life span. And it seems that the blog commenting is losing its sheen by each passing day. Bloggers are extremely careful in moderation and Auto-approved blogs may not be worthy anymore because of heavy dose of comment spamming already done.

    Scrapebox is a blog commentor?

    Hmmm I just brought a car with my scrapebox earnings, blog commenting is the only thing I don't use at all!

    Scrapebox is a scraper and a bloody good one

    Scraping other competitors backlinks and emails?

    When you say you make money from it is it just using the above methods?

    I agree with whomever says that most tricks have limited lifespans. But if you work with the right lists SB is still a decent tool and with the way I use it (to generate awareness and boost branding in addition to backlinks...) SB has proven to be surely effective.

    Well usually I would give a smart arse comment and say something like...mmm....mmm a bad workman blames his tools but I have also experienced this lack of success with getting backlinks.

    I am guessing that this worked for people maybe a year ago and then it got saturated and then bloggers got wise to it and started manual comment approvals. :(

    I don't know what you guys are talking about, scrapebox is awesome.

    I created an autoblog site and did a scrapebox blast on an auto-approve list of 5,000.
    Of that 5k, i've already got 1,300 indexed backlinks. It improved my serp from page 3 to page 1 for the keyword i wanted. Worked GREAT.

    my experience is: they work, they have their value, they're definitely not completely useless. you can find a few that also aren't spammed to death, and these have even more link value.
