    I have a specific requirement to only get the url's of the top 3 results in scrapebox for a lot of keywords.

    Is there any way to do this without scraping all of the other results?

    Shouldn't that work if you set the results to 3 in the harvester?

    It then scrapes 3 results per keyword, which should be the top 3 each. Would make sense...

    ha! true... just checked it.... don't know why the limit of a minimum of 10 results per keyword.... never had the need for it. Normally more the opposite: Yesterday i scraped 2 mil urls in one run without google... just bing and yahoo :D

    The minimum is 10 because Google shows 10 results on one page :)

    The results box is the number of pages, not the number of results. As far as I know, you can't scrape just 3 with SB.
