    Ive had it for a long time and occasionally dust it off and fire it up and do some very random blasting....get bored....and close it ....until the next time.

    The sites I want to use it on dont really need to be high in SERPS as the traffic needs to be instant for me to really make the most of them. My other traffic sources are Tweet Attacks and Yahoo Answers.

    So, is Scrapebox any good for getting traffic fairly quickly using the blog comments and actually including links direct to the site I need the traffic or is it really only best used to get backlinks for traffic in the future via SERPS.

    If it can be used for quick traffic whats the best settings, modules to use etc.

    Thanks!

    See, SB is NOT built to "send" you traffic. It's main purpose is to build backlinks, which indirectly MAY give you visitors.

    Here's how it works:
    - You comment on thousands of pages
    - Many of your links are live
    - SE's see those links
    - Your rep rises in SE's eyes
    - Your SERP's increases
    - Your organic traffic increases

    Now, this process obviously takes a lot of time. And the time is dependent on many factors such as:
    - Your domain authority
    - The backlink authority
    - KW choice
    ..
    ..

    So, NO, instant traffic from SB, not possible.

    Thanks for the answer.

    What I am thinking about is the live links that are posted on the blogs. Does anyone get direct traffic from them or are people generally not reading the comments on the blogs.

    Think about yourself. When you read a blog post, how many times have you read each and every comment, and clicked a link of the commenter? Only when the comment is a direct response to the post.

    And with SB, that's just not possible.

    You then need to go manual.

    In terms of traffic, AMR may be more quick to send traffic to you depending on the quality of the article you blast. But SB sends more backlinks which will eventually build steady traffic to you

    You will get some traffic from SB blast but that is not compared to AMR or Yahoo Answer.

    Depends on your niche and if your comments seem real. I get traffic from targeted SB blasts sometimes.

    You can actually get instant traffic and sales from blog spamming if you have a product that appeals to webmasters / blog owners.

    Make a comment like "Hey, I noticed you're using Wordpress - check out this amazing new blahblahblah plugin..." with a link to your site.

    You can get pretty much instant traffic and sales as your comments get stuck in the moderation queue and then reviewed by the blog owner - so you're actually targeting the blog owners themselves, not the random surfers on their blogs. With several million Wordpress blogs out there and tens of thousands of blog owners, there is plenty of scope for promotion.

    Yep. That's what I came in here to post. Think of the millions of blogs out there. That is potentially millions of hits from Webmasters/blog owners. Works for me.

    Well, I beg to differ slightly. Even though the primary function is not to get direct traffic but indirects from serps due to increased links, you may use SB as analytical tool to locate high trafficked blogs. More that likely you will need to read the post and place relevant comment. If you are little bit innovative in your comments and research you can land on bight trafficked blog, place comments and get traffic back.
    Obviously it will depend on the blog, niche and your creativity.
    Good luck

    Test it out yourself setup a test page and link it with a tracker (bit.ly maybe) and see how many clicks you get.
