    Hi all!

    I've been lurking around here for a while and learned a lot. Thanks!

    I'm now about to decide if I should buy me a copy of Scrapebox.
    I can't afford Xrumer and since decaptcha changed it's images recently I guess that buying X is risky business right now, I'm sure they will find a way around it though.

    If I use the "cheap" link to buy Scrapebox, will it be worth it?
    Can anyone here actually say and maybe show proof of that it works?

    A question to those who have used it from the start:
    What's the average "success rate" when it comes to Scrapebox?
    You don't need to be exact but don't lie either, is it really worth the money?


    N00b questions I know, but I'm not rich and even with the discount link, it's a big pay for me. So please be honest.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, I've read those threads, I'm now a newbie here...

    But if anyone can step up and actually confirm that you have got +% more traffic since you started your first blast. If you know what I mean.

    Well I started using it 2 weeks ago, on a new domain, I scraped myself a auto accept list of around 400 blogs. My main KW has 29'000 exact searches per month, and i have gone from page 13 to page 3/4 and rising daily. I'm still new to it but it certainly seems like a powerful tool. Hope that helps.

    For what I learnt from here don´t blast your site directly, or at least do it only with auto approved blogs to avoid flagged like spam. You can make some web 2.0 properties (blogspot, squidoo, wordpress, etc) and blast those. These web 2.0 pages have to include your link to your main site with your keyword.
    I recently bought scrapebox and have a succes rate of 50%, sometimes lower, using only good harvested proxies, my internet connection is crappy (1mps) so private proxies won´t make a difference. So my posting goes really slow.
    Yesterday I blast 1000 auto approved to a squidoo page and now have 50 backlinks, I didn´t index the backlinks.
    I still don´t see results in my serp for the blasts of scrapebox, but well... I started two days ago and haven´t blast my main site yet.

    I recommend you to read more about scrapebox and seo in general, have a good day.

    Did you do a blast to your main site with that list? I´m also collecting my own list to blast my site. But also have done many other seo backlinks. How long did it take you to get page 3 since the scrapebox blast?

    Not my main site, just a recently set up affiliate one. Yeah i made the list myself as the ones shared around are saturated and have little link juice. I had around 75 PR1+ and the rest 0 or N/A, but not sure if thats a bad thing looks relatively natural. I blasted and I google danced went from 13 to 8 then danced again and I am now on the border of 3/4 still jumps between the two. I only use public proxies atm and i'm currently gathering another list to blast again, I will keep you posted on it's progress.

    Definately worth the money, if anything it's too cheap

    Nothing is worth more than Scrapebox. I run 3 dedicated and 1 VPS. work alone for more than 40 websites I get to page 1 between 2 -7 months depending on the on page study I do, Link structure, and off course competition.
    The advanced use of scrapebox is not as simple as many threads state here. It has too many features, excellent features. Of course it takes time to do everything at least ok, but depends also on the effort you put on it.
    Advanced is a good amount of study and the secrets unfortunately you have to learn by yourself. NO ONE is going to tell you exactly the methods and th real true as how Google works because it like a gold mine. Same with all IM.
    What I can tell you, is that if you work and study and look and search, you will find the best way, and the secrets.

    Thanks to both of you above, one with a new site and the other one with an unknown age (if you don't mind).

    I know white hat seo, and the sites I have in mind right now to blast with SB is old domains, both is over 10 years old and on-page seo targeted but have never been used in the "right" way until I stepped in, the domains are keyword targeted and on-page optimized but there's the backlinking thing.

    I don't have the time to create 10.000s of backlinks the natural way as I need to do, that's the reason I'm asking if SB will do the trick.

    I'm fully aware of the risk with blasting a site with backlinks and end up in Mr Sandybox and play with tractors...

    So I can add a question,
    Will it be a temp serp boost or will it stick?

    You who have been in the game for a long time know what I mean.

    But to be nice to all you others, you don't blast a zxereetere.xxx site with "online casino" links to get no1 on "online casino" without knowing that one week from now you're down to play with trucks in the sandbox.
    Let's say that I want to target.. umm.. an easy low comp keyword.. "xrumer" is a low low comp and with 60k searches per month worldwide...
    If I target xrumer, and I'm creating backlinks with SB with the phrase "cheap xrumer blast" or whatever triggers buyers..
    Will that stick to my site or is it temp?
    I know that it's hard to answer, but you guys who have used SB since the beginning might be able to answer. Did your links stay or did they get deleted?

    No offence to all SB newbies like me, but I'm just trying to gather facts.

    Everyone is still more then welcome to give your input.

    i read a lot of good things about sb.... as a matter of fact i didn´t ready anything negative about scrapebox.
    i just bought it yesterday and am waiting for my activation code, but i guess i won´t be disappointed....

    i would say give it a try...
