    I have a copy of scrapebox and a good proxy source I subscribed to but I am struggling to see the value in the purchase? I completely understand how to source auto approved blogs and have the process down, I can source AA lists very quickly by searching for the backlinks on the sites other blog commenters have posted and following an endless train of these links building a solid AA list up as I go, I obviously now have thousands of unique domains to post to....

    I just don't see the value! The vast majority of these blogs are no follow links, what is the point? I know there is a small amount of benefit, but really? Is it worth it? I have yet to see any real benefit in blasting (carfully) any site with these low quality no follow links, and the number of do follows are so minimal it is almost not worth the effort trying to find them...

    Am I missing the point? Can anyone tell me where the value is?

    Harvesting high quality links is where the value is. There are some list builders on here that make lists that give huge boosts to SERPs.

    Well no one is going to answer your question if you are a smart ass and put it all in black. yes, I can be a smart ass as well.

    google loves nofollow. It looks more natural to have a bunch of nofollow links and some do follow here and there. since the majority of the web is made up of nofollow you shouldn't be searching for do follow links that much. If you find one, take it. other than that do with what you have.

    In my experience, from researching some sites in top positions for very competitive keywords, I was surprised to find that they have large amounts of blog spam.

    Make of it what you will. Test and see for yourself.

    Yes I have done, around my niche anyway and yes they did have some comment spam, but I think it does more harm than good, high PR sites or not the comments are no follow, even if you use it on your web 2.0 sites I am still not convinced there is value there. I have had great results with article marketing, link pushing and some really high quality EDU and high PR profile links, but blog comments dont seem to have the same impact.

    I can publish an article, link build to it and watch that impact the SERPS overnight, I can blast 2k comment posts and see no rise and infact, risk a penalty from it, I dont get it!

    Using scrapebox alone is of no great use. You will not see any marked jump in your SEO. The main reason for using Scrapebox is to get link diversity. Blog commenting helps in link diversity, and to my knowledge scrapebox is the best blog commenting software.

    By using BMD, Scrapebox, xrumer, magic submitter, rss submit and link directory submitter together you will get a complete SEO growth rather than working with one alone.

    Don't worry about no follow, google indexes those links as well. Instead of hunting for AA, scrape more urls that are related to keyword, filter out unique domains, don't post in more than one url of the same domain name.

    Link diversity is a good reason to comment post, I understand that, but 10k no follow links? I think ScrapeBox does it really well, but the value of it is questionable.

    I actually used SEO spyglass found my competitors high PR blog comments and forum profiles, jumped on the back of them and that was indexed overnight and gave me a boost, my scrapebox blasts have never even shown up as backlinks, the quality is not there.

    You're right. That's why I don't buy it but outsource the job.
    On a 1,000 blast, you get 25-50 yahoo indexed backlinks and about zero Google indexed backlinks. But if you go much higher at once, you may risk to be completely de-indexed by G. Been there, done that. The thing is to go slow, little by little but regularly....
    If you want, I have a job for you for relevant keyword blastings.

    It means you are not doing it right! I have several sites that some keywords (including more competitive) jumped several pages to the front page on g!

    You need to read more about advanced SB techniques, custom footprints, using trackbacks, etc.

    Don't blame the tool!

    There are some case studies on BHW which rank only form blog commenting.

    I think there is value in blog comments, which is evident by the way a lot of high ranking websites use blog commenting.

    I also think that you can't really harm your website with blog comment spam. I've not experienced it yet. It is simply a fallacy Google wants you to believe.

    I believe that the biggest value behind scrapebox is in all the addons you can download with it. (Check the addon button in the top menu)

    Plus there is this index checker and similar staff built in the main window...
    The main functionality of blasting blog comments has very little value, but the other tools and addons are definitely worth the money. So have a better look at them.
