    Hey,

    Is Scrapebox Backlink checker down because of YSE? I just get an error 990 for every URL. If so , when can we expect an update? With another API?

    Thanks.

    You can still find backlinks pretty easily through Google.

    Try doing:

    link:domain.com

    Or if you want more than 1k results do:

    link:domain.com a
    link:domain.com b
    link:domain.com c
    link:domain.com keyword here
    link:domain.com keyword there
    link:domain.com keywords everywhere

    Ok , But I want to find them in Scrapebox. It saves time when you have a lot of URL's.

    What do you mean?
    You can use these operators in scrapebox and harvest the links (results).

    This an option,

    however google is quite stingy showing backlinks to a site.

    Exactly , but Google doesn't show all the results. I would just want an update to the Backlink Checker.

    Bah, that's bad news if its true, I'm gonna need to check SB now to see, I use that tool quite a lot :(

    No doubt SweetFunny and the rest of the team will be quick onto getting it sorted though. In fact, I thought yahoo had previously announced it was ditching site explorer, so it couldn't have been a surprise...I'd have thought they'd already be working on alternatives if they KNEW it was going to stop working.

    Is this still bugged? Mine also shows 0 backlinks.... :(

    Any fix?

    Edit:

    Guess I found a solution on my own. First thing first, load this into the keyword section:

    Code:
    q
    w
    e
    r
    t
    y
    u
    i
    o
    p
    a
    s
    d
    f
    g
    h
    j
    k
    l
    z
    x
    c
    v
    b
    n
    m
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    9
    0
    Then use the "M" button to load the list of urls you want backlinks for. This will merge your URLs with the letters and numbers.

    Lst step, type "link:" in the textbox next to "M".

    Uncheck all search engines except google, and hit harvest.

    Good luck :)

    This addons failure is because Yahoo backlink has shut down,and the addons use yahoo backlink api;)
