    I recently purchased Scrapebox along with 10 private proxies.
    Anyway, I write my keywords, I write the foot print "site:.*" and then click on harvest.
    After it's done with the harvesting I just transfer the harvested links to the comment poster section. I let it run for a while and
    I get pretty shitty results as far as success rate go... I got around 600 comments from a 40K list I found online.
    The problem is, when I tried checking the links randomly for my comment (after exporting the success) - there was nothing inside, it just won't post!
    I filled all the text files that I was supposed to fill and clicked the "Test Comments" and seems ok, yet for some reason it just won't post...
    What am I doing wrong? please help :)

    Either the proxies are not properly working or the website you are posting to have captcha or anti-spam system enabled.

    Firstly why are you adding keywords and site:.* ? Thats just going to burn up your proxies quicker, and if you do not include it then you will get the same results. Assuming your actually putting that with the asterisk.

    That aside your confusing what a live link is with "Success". I have a brand new video on the poster in V2, have a watch:


    But in a nutshell, "Submitted" means it was submitted successfully, not that the link is live. The link checker will tell you if the link is live. You can expect about 1%, give or take a percent, to go live on a randomly scraped list, with a good footprint. Good footprint meaning one that brings in sites specifically that work with Scrapeboxes poster.

    So what happens to all those 600 links you successfully submitted but that aren't live? They are in moderation. Submitted just means that the end site received your comment, it doesn't mean it was approved.

    I added "site" in order to get every wordpress blog that uses the keywords I'm looking for. all wordpress blogs with all suffixes.
    But I see your point. what would you recommend filling in this line so my proxies will last longer?
    Also, I read a little and your not the only one who says this about the randomly scraped list. Is there a guide that you recommend
    regarding acquiring a blog list? I know that there are paid ones, but I spent all my money on SB,VPS and Proxies...

    Sure:

    I have over 100 videos on that channel and I make new ones all the time, if you subscribe you will probably find it useful.

    As for the footprint line, I would use the platform footprint built into Scrapebox for wordpress and then place your keywords in the keyword box and leave the footprint box empty, assuming you wanting wordpress urls.

    Scrapebox is not what it used to be. Back in the day, we got about 750,000 links out of a 6,000,000 list. These days we are lucky to get 100,000 clean and verified.

    If you compare 100K to 750K than yes - it's a huge decrease.
    But honestly, isn't 100K enough?

    No doubt, links you are posting to arent AutoApprove (AA). You should get AA list from online sources, if you cant scrape one yourself.

    You mean the world got better at spam detection? Thats not any fault of Scrapebox. Wordpress has changed their defaults from being auto approved to being hard to get links on. Anyway, its just a matter of churning thru a bit more, but really, its all automated, so it happens while I sleep so no big deal. The game is always changing.
