    I haven't used it for a while but when I try a custom footprint of "site:www.asite.com" I either get nothing or I get 100 then it removes them??
    I can't find anyone having the same issue so I must be me. Any ideas?

    Try some other common footprints and see what happens. If you are able to scrape, then the issue is with your footprint. If you are not able to scrape for any footprints, then other possible reasons are...

    Proxies - Make sure it is working fine.

    Connection - Make sure your connection is stable.

    Target site - The site which you are scraping might be having some difficulties hence not returning any results.

    Search engine - Might be banned for excessive scraping. If you use G0ogle, try some other location servers(.co.uk/co.in). If you use Yah0o, try scraping without proxies.

    I'm finding the Yahoo harvester no longer works very well.

    Before I could harvest well over a million results. Now it gives up very quickly.
