    Have any of you had trouble scraping recently with ScrapeBox?

    I've been trying to scrape the register pages of a specific platform and the string is definitely right as I can manually go through the search results and see hundreds of the exact pages I'm looking to scrape but for some reason ScrapeBox is returning a heap of unrelated random url's.

    The problem seems to exist in both Yahoo and Google so I don't believe it's a search engine specific problem, although it may be.

    I have contacted support but just wanted to check here to see if anybody else was also having the same problem.

    All about the footprints:

    1) include a url specific footprint
    2) include a text-specific footprint found in that url
    3) optional: do #2 above again

    So you would have "textspecifictothaturl" inurl:specifictothattext
