    Since YSE, and SB's backlink checker is based on that.

    What are some alternative we can use to scrape backlinks? (other than harvesting manually)

    Thx

    SEO Spyglass is the tool to use. It's not as fast or versitile as scrapebox, but it can still check backlinks by using a whole bunch of different engines. I guess they are also rolling out their own database solution as well.

    I have to agree with the post above, SEO Spyglass gets a lot of backlinks especially from the unknown search engine called bleko. If yahoo failed me during the scraping faze bleko got my back.

    Yep, manually you have a few options but automated you only really have SEOSpyglass.

    If you want to know how to use Blekko to scrape backlinks manually, check out my thread here

    I use a combination of OSE and majestic, works pretty well for me.

    Can someone confirm if spyglass even works anymore?
    I heard they are using YSE as well?

    I tried to run a report on SEO Spyglass this morning and got pretty much nothing for backlinks where before when YSE was up I was getting a couple thousand. The people running it have commented on their forums that they are working on their own backlink database and that will soon be the basis for SEO Spyglass but until that comes out its pretty useless for me.

    Seo SpyGlass is a pain in the ass for me lately. Untill they will make a big update on their backlinks database I will stop using this tool for checking my competitors. Now I'm using seomoz.

    hum...
    Cant believe SEOspyglass is down as well (i didnt even know they were using YSE).
    What about Market Samurai? Do they use their own backlink database or YSE?

    Thanks

    They use YSE.

    I'd say that roughly 95% of the link checkers were using YSE as their primary
    source for backlink data. My guess is that Spyglass is having even more
    problems since Blekko changed the way that you login to the site for SEO data.

    That is unless they are using the API.

    Regardless, there really aren't any SOLID linkcheckers now. No link checkers have the infrastructure to crawl the web like Yahoo had.

    Sucks. Hopefully we can get someone that steps in and doesn't charge an arm and a leg for something like YSE.

    Hmm look to other methods to harvest? setting up spam comment capturing blogs, and using the comments as footprints. Or just plain old scrape keywords and post doesn't work too badly at all actually
