    I'm trying to get a system going to keep myself organised with Scrapebox.

    With lists being moved from folder to folder, I'm wanting to have a flowchart type of system/plan for creating AA lists, where stage 1 is Havesting and it goes through to test posting, link checking, proper test (blog, money site etc). So I know at which stage each URL list is.

    I'm wondering if anybody could kindly share their plan, such as how many instances you use; what each instance does; the order from start to finish you do.

    I'm finding myself sometimes confused which url list has come from where and what I've already done and still need to do - especially after coming back to it the next day.

    Here's what I have done:

    I created a "Lists" folder on my desktop.
    In it I have 3 subfolders:

    [​IMG]

    1. Raw Lists
    Here are all my raw lists downloaded from BHW, other places, or just raw scrapes

    2. Check These
    In this folder, I maintain 'processed lists', ie, dups removed, blog analyzer passed etc etc..

    3. Checked
    Lists ready to blasted off :D

    Maybe this can help you.

    TheMatrix's solution is similar to what I use combined with an Excel spreadsheet with all of my backlinking plans.

    I wish someone would build a scheduler for Scrapebox to make the whole process easier.

    I'm probably over complicating it.

    What I currently have as folders is:

    Keyword Lists - These are ones I run through when harvesting, with a custom footprint.

    Harvested URLs - Obviously lists of what Scrapebox harvested, from the keywords; or, lists I've got from forums. These are all ones which I haven't done anything with yet.

    Test Blasts - Lists of URLs which I'm going to do a test blast with. Inside this is a Checked Links folder - which I move to once I've done a link check. I then save the links found as a mini AA list and move it to a folder called 'Auto Approve Lists'

    Proper Blasts - Lists which I'll blast to with my money site / article etc

    Auto Approve Lists - I save files here after I've done a link check, as I know the ones found are AA. With these I then do 1) Competitor backlink check, from all other sites on these lists and 2) Find out all URLs on the root domain, to find other blog posts on that domain.ext

    Master Auto Approve Lists - These are lists that I've finished with and can be used for other websites in the future.


    I've now created an excel spreasheet: Along the top will have each step, down the left will be the name of the file which will be worked on. This way I can note when each Blog List has done each stage.

    Any suggestions?

    I have a folder full of harvested or untested urls, which are broken into 100k lines each. For each one I create a new folder inthe big folder for 100k file where I store all the posts, fails, and finally livelinks found.

    So...

    FOLDER: NEW URLS
    urls1.txt
    urls2.txt
    urls3.txt
    FOLDER: 1
    posted1.txt
    posted2.txt
    fail.txt
    LL found.txt
    FOLDER: 2
    posted1.txt
    etc.

    I will also have a folder for all the AA lists I pick up from other places

    FOLDER: NEW AA LISTS
    21k AA.txt
    100k AA. txt
    FOLDER: 21k
    posted1.txt
    etc.


    And lastly I have a folder for all of the auto-approved files that I found, which is my own verified AA list. I would combine all the live links I found above and make a copy here.

    Not a bad idea... and then you can delete the folder once you've worked with the list and amended your AA list.

    What I'd also do is perhaps have a Master AA and a normal AA list... with the normal AA list you do 2 things:

    1) Look for all URLs on that domain. If one blog post is AA the chances are, any other blog posts it has will also be
    2) Check the spammer's backlinks and test blast all those

    You can get loads simply by doing the above 2 without actually harvesting from scratch yourself.

    My Scrapebox Workflow goes something like:

    Keyword Harvest > Split KW List > Move to Harvester

    Harvest > Remove Duplicate URLs > Save Split List (50,000ea)

    Load in Commenter

    Posted > Save Posted.txt > Link Check > Posted OK > Save AAList#.txt

    Failed > Save Failed.txt > Repost > Repeat 3 Times


    I keep it organized in folders by work step. I actually have a large hand drawn schematic I use when building good lists but I won't share it here just now.
