    I'm brand new here, and brand new to Scrapebox, but I watched all the videos twice and I'm sure I ran my first comment blast correctly. Using private proxies and the fast commenter, I got "success" on about 700 out of 1000 URLs I targeted (URLs I had harvested using the Wordpress checkbox and a keyword). When I went to check the "success"ful posts, though, I only found three comments. Why would this be? Why would I get a "success" message when the comment was not accepted?

    I then ran the slow commenter on the original URLs that had failed, and managed to get about 150 more successful posts, according to the tool, but this time, when checking the links, I got zero hits. I looked at about 20 random URLs, and sure enough, even though I got a success message, my comment was not there. On many of the blogs no comments were visible at all. Am I missing something?

    Because they are not all auto-approve sites.

    The site owner has to approve your comment before it goes live.

    Scrapebox counts it as a success when it successfully submits the comment to the site, not whether it is live or not. Auto approve = shows up live automatically.

    Thanks. So these few that I found immediately were probably auto-approve sites.

    Think a bit bigger, i've scraped 15-20mil results (around 900k after removing dupe domains). And that will get you the links you want ;)

    Keyword list, dont go lower then 10k keywords when scraping, use a lot of proxies :)

    Yeah, I'm just getting started with the tool. After I'm sure I'm familiar with the way it functions, I'll look at other methods.

    Do this, and make sure you use ONLY public proxies for scraping.. Private proxies will probably get banned quickly from search engines..

    I find better results (speed) if I use the free link checker provided by ScrapeBox instead of the one built in ScrapeBox

    Try different footprints when you get familiar with the process

    In my experience I have seen the same thing. Many sites don't actually delete the comment forms they just disable comments from being seen so a bot will still be able to post.

    To me your results sound normal provided that you did what you said you did.

    Heres how to increase your success rate.

    First you must have private proxies. I used for too long with public proxies and had I known the difference I would have bought private from day one. Yes they are way faster and you get much more success. I bought the 25 pack from squid proxies. check the forum you will see a discount for them.

    Then don't just scrape 1000 urls. YOu need about 20,000 urls. You also need to run them through blog check and everything. Also, run blog check more than once, you will be suprised.

    I was talking to someone else in India about this very problem, I am in US and he said that the results you are seeing are normal. But that is why he has 10 scrapebox running 24/7. You have to set up macros and get scrapebox running 24/7 for you. then you willl start to see major results.

    Peace. Scrapebox is the only tool like it. I know you say xrumer but xrumer is not easy like scrapebox.

    Peace.

    Definitely "Check Links" immediately after posting -- the ones found are AUTO APPROVE. Save these for future work (why throw out good work?)

    You need to find auto approve blogs which is quite easy to be honest. There are lot of threads here on BHW how to find AA blogs.
