    Just wondering if anyone knows the footprints for some of the engines listed on it. I think I can better results doing it manually than with scrapebox - also I'd like to take a look to see what else I can refine.

    If anyone can help me with that, I'd be willing to share my tweaks and findings.

    just the footprints used b2evolution, Expression Engine & Drupal - I think it would be easier to use google manually to find them. I've tried forming my own but only came across nofollow sites for them, never found a do_Follow link using the footprints I created.

    So if I can see what they're basic footprint is I can probably research it further to find other permutations that can be used to get more relevant and better results to use with scapebox - which I will of course share with those who help me out with it.

    Finding the blog footprints used by Scrapebox is only one small amount of its capabilities. I was manually finding such blogs to post on before, but Scrapebox saves so much time and has so many other features built in, its definitely a good tool and they keep adding things to it too. I am still discovering new uses for it!

    If you still want to know, I am not sure what my Scrapebox uses exactly as I haven't bothered deciphered or looked into it, but I am sure the info isn't top secret, and if you search a couple of the blog platforms you mention, you will find some footprints to follow, or check out Angela and Paul's backlinks, they seem to get a fair few.

    Remember me when you suss it out! :) Suze xx

    You can just use stuff like this:

    +"powered by b2evolution"

    +"powered by drupal"

    +"powered by ExpressionEngine"

    Anyone having trouble with scraping footprints with google using public proxy, good ones that pass google test? I can't seem to scrape forum footprints with google.. Yahoo returns good results but 0 from google...

    I've found most public proxies are quickly banned by Google.

    There's a good way to get around this: Don't bother using proxies and don't use Google.

    Yahoo + No Proxies is the way to go.

    Yup Yahoo sas stuff indexed as Google and are massively more lax.

    When you have 50% duplicates (as you will often have) that's Yahoo and Google finding the same stuff.

    You will get 20% more on average with google (a guess based on many - many runs) but Yahoo will (at the moment) be far more slack

    If you are harvesting 120,000 instead of 150,000 it's all just "big numbers" at the end of the day.
