    ok, that works, but i'm looking for blogs though with allintitle, is that not possible, so how would i search for wordpress blogs that have children's books in the title?

    thanks for your help by the way

    I did do that mate, it's showing results, completely unrelated to children's books

    i tried to post the url but since i'm new i can't, but you'll see none of url's are related to children's books

    First off you jumped away from your first question. How to find competitors backlinks?

    There is an easier way than listed above. It's called scrapebox backlink checker. It's an addon. Look on your menu bar under addons. If you don't currently have it then download it. You can then 1) scrape a keyword using custom footprint, harvest the urls that are returned and then run the backlink checker on those urls. Or 2) if you have a particular url of a competitor site save the url in a text editor then import the url into the harvester side and run backlink checker on the url.

    As far as custom footprints go use intitle:"childrens books" The problem is that if you are running to many custom footprints google will usually ban your proxy list pretty quick. So you better be sure you have a big working list of proxies.

    allintitle:"childrens books"

    i did this, clicked WP, nothing happens, no results it gives

    just curious, tell me if you can do it and if you see titles with children's books

    i'm not computer illiterate, i use software programs all the time so I'm really not sure what the issue is

    Like I said I believe it comes down to the proxies used. I harvested fresh proxies and ran this through scrapebox with the following settings:

    Blog type: Wordpress
    Search Engine: Only Google (Time settings: Anytime)

    Keywords: (Quotes included)

    intitle:"childrens books"
    intitle:"childrens reading books"
    inurl:"childrens books"
    inurl:"childrens reading books"

    Only returned 100 results but pretty much all had childrens books in the url and/or title. It probably should have been more but like I said I believe bad proxies = bad results. Noticed I got some 403 error messages which usually means denied/forbidden

    ahh, so it goes in keywords, i was putting that in harvest to the right of letter M and leaving keywords blank, so thanks for clarifying

    also when i used no proxy it works, used free proxies it didn't

    if i use say 5 priv proxies, won't that get me banned though on those?

    I would assume private proxies would be banned pretty quick. As they say about scrapebox use public for harvesting and private for posting. I find that even using public proxies you will at least get some results with a larger set of keywords. Example: I used 4 search terms and got 100 results. If I had run 40 search terms maybe I'd get back a 1000 results?

    Also here is a little tip: Create a text file called intitle.txt open the file and type the following: intitle:"%kw%" and save the file. Run keyword scraper for your keyword childrens books and related terms. After your scrape the keywords click on the button "add to main keyword list". Now, click on the "M" near the top of scrapebox and locate the intitle.txt file that you created earlier. It will now merge all of those keywords that you just scraped and make them become intitle:"keyword" then run that list through the harvester. You should be surprised at the results.

    You can do the same thing for inurl

    Hope this helps

    I just scraped 28 keywords using childrens books as the seed. Ran all 28 as intitle:"keyword" using same proxies as earlier. Google returned "0" results. Ran it with proxies turned off and was able to get about 700 results. Ran PR checker on the url not domain. Found 29 with PR between 1 and 4 (three 4's, five 3's, seven 2's and the rest 1's)

    nice idea, i will try it tomorrow and let you know how it goes

    one thing i don't get yet is getting emails, i was able to develop 1k emails of backlinks from competitor, but how do i create a list of emails that match up emails to the list. ie. i know how to create list of emails but it doesn't seem there is a way to match them up with the list of url's?

    BigEasy, so I create a text file called intitle.txt, and on 1 line i type intitle:"%kw%" correct?

    Then in SB, I click custom footprint, keywords I have 'Children's books'

    and run, i get a list of url's harvest only

    But no additional keywords

    I also didn't see what you said here After your scrape the keywords click on the button "add to main keyword list".

    Thanks for clarifying

    had an idea, while doing just harvesting of url's, is it possible to use priv. proxies but at a slow pace so doesn't flag google? if so, what pace should i set it out and how do you do that in SB for harvesting, posting i found
