    Sorry everyone.
    I hope this will be my last semi-stupid question i will ever ask.
    But the footprint feature is still unclear for me in scrapebox.
    So you guys say that for example if i enter:
    ?powered by wordpress? ?leave a comment?
    Inurl:.edu ?Powered by wordpress?
    Inurl:.gov ?Powered by WordPress?

    etc, etc, etc. then a lot of wordpress sites should pop in the harvester especially for the first search.
    But how can i search for it?
    Select " custom footprint" and enter it into the field or search for it as keyword?
    My goal: to find the most wordpress sites to comment on, i do not care about the topic, the niche or anything else i just want to see a huge load of wp blogs on my harverster.
    Shall i go with the first setting? "powered by wordpress"?
    I though this should pretty much spit out all of the wp sites out there, but i recon its not that way....
    Any help is appreciated (as allways).
    And again, excuse my dumbness!

    You don't need to put a footprint in if you're just looking for WP blogs. Just click the "Wordpress Blogs" radio box and Scrapebox will find them for you. Then put any keywords you want in the box underneath.

    just keep digging here - thats how I learned - and thats how alot of others learned

    The best footprints won't be shared here, (well i wouldn't share mine anyway) but you should get an idea and learn how to come up with your own.

    I'm not going to go too deep either, but I'll at least help you understand.

    "powered by vbulletin" intitle:sports <-- Put this is google

    What that is doing is scraping vbulletin forums which also has the word sports in the title. Those are results that scrapebox will return as well. So know that you know that, you can get creative.

    You can put "powered by vbulletin" in the footprint field. Then down in the keyword field you can put things like

    intitle:sports
    intitle:news
    intitle:politics

    etc. etc.

    That's just basic stuff.

    There's a seo footprints ebook floating around. Find that and study it. Then you will realize the power of scrapebox and footprints.


    For the second part of your post. If you just want a lot of wordpress blogs, just leave the wordpress button checked... then add a ton of different keywords. Simple as that.
