    I don't think this has been posted here. I've never seen it anywhere so I thought I'd post another little trick I came across with ScrapeBox tonight. I'm always optimizing my usage, a lesson learned with Xrumer - and here's a great little trick to completely rape a blog - think .edu blogs

    I use this with blogengine blogs, but I'm sure it would work with everything.

    You will want to scrape, spam, and immediately check for your backlinks as soon as you are done posting. This will give you a list of blogs that autopost comments. Once you have a list of a couple thousand built up, or even if you are just starting to build a list but have a few high PR or EDU domains, you can use this.

    1. Open you Master Blog List or where ever you are saving your successful links. Paste all the URLS in the upper right scrapebox, box.(URL's harvested)

    2. Trim to Root

    3. Remove Duplicate Domains.

    4. Check PR and Filter out Blogs below a certain limit. For me it's PR4 or less. Some are more picky and will do PR6 or better. Others PR2 or better. The less picky you are, the more posts you will get.

    5. Copy all of those domains, and paste them in the keyword box on the left.

    6. Make sure the "Blogengine" is selected if they were BE blogs, or select whatever format the original blogs were in. If you forget, use blog analyzer to find out.

    7. Use proxies and hit "Start Harvesting"

    8. In the Harvested URL's box will appear all of the posts from those domains that are index by the search engines you selected.

    9. Remove duplicates and you should have a HUGE list of nearly 100% auto-posting blog posts to completely CRUSH a domain with backlinks to your sites. It's like being on the sites blog roll in effect.

    This may not be good to use if you are only backlinking to a couple URL's, but if you are like me and backlink to parasites than this is like Gold. I normally get a 10-40 fold increase in the number of posts I can comment on. In other words, 50 blogs produces nearly 500-2000 posts to dominate that are very likely to be auto-approve since that's what you started with. Imagine if you took all 500-1000 domains and did it no matter what their pagerank was. If nothing else you pick up posts that the normal harvester left behind.

    If you don't want to comment en' mass - you can then check PR of all of the posts and only comment on all of the PR3 and > posts for like... oh I don't know, .EDU blogs

    Lastly, since you are bombing just a single domain, this is one case where using proxies is a DAMN GOOD idea and keep the comments very random.




    Tip/Trick No.2



    Method


    Our goal is to avoid writing generic comments that are obvious Scrape Box comments, and look like we have read the article, even though we haven't. I am not talking about writing ass kissing...thanks for posting, I came to you from bing, I found your article in google and wanted to say thanks shit. I am talking about targeted comments.

    How


    Smarter scraping, and using search engine operators - think of a popular topic... or article title idea....in this example I am going to use the term "Top 10" then combine it with something specific:

    intitle:"top 10" "Wordpress themes"

    Now this is going to find a whole heap of articles that are top ten lists about Wordpress themes. These sorts of articles are very popular, Google says there are about 13,000 results for this term. Notice I used the search engine operator "intitle:" to ensure that the Top 10 part was in the title of the page. I could also have put a intitle in front of the Wordpress themes part, this gives 300-400 articles with both terms in the title.

    Now we have a list of articles, and now have a pretty damn good idea what's going to be in those articles too because it's obvious...so we can write a 5-6 comments about the article that will almost certainly get approves.... i.e.

    "What a great list of Wordpress themes. I am always on the look for new wordpress themes, and your list is great starting point. Lists are so useful! Thanks."

    "Wow, you have listed some very cool Wordpress themes here, just been checking some of them out, and there are some impressive themes in this list. It's amazing how many great themes there are out there for Wordpress."

    You get the idea.

    Why it works

    The key part of the above idea is to use the search operator intitle to ensure you know your term is in the title, and as a result you have a high likelihood of providing an on-topic comment.

    I find movies are good, top XX lists, I am sure you can think of more.

    These comments will not be generic, generic comments don't work:
    http://www.pingable.org/generic-comment-spam/

    Variations


    site: is a good operator if you are targeting geographic links...i.e. you have a site based in the uk, and you want links from other uk sites to boost your ranking in google.co.uk.

    The idea here is to search for site:co.uk + intitle:"top 20" - or combine it with any other intitle keyword.

    Then your comments will say..."Hey, always good to see other people from the uk in my searching, I really appreciate the time it must have taken to put together this top 20 list. Cheers."

    Google has 8,670 results for the above term... I would probably approve that comment in it landed on a top 20 list on one of my sites.???


    Useful Operators


    allintitle: If you start your query with allintitle:, Google restricts results to those containing all the query terms you specify in the title.
    allinurl:If you start your query with allinurl:, Google restricts results to those containing all the query terms you specify in the URL.
    inurl:If you include inurl: in your query, Google will restrict the results to documents containing that word in the URL.
    intitle:The query intitle:term restricts results to documents containing term in the title.
    site:If you include site: in your query, Google will restrict your search results to the site or domain you specify.



    Tip/Trick No.3



    The method will allow you to find all of the backlinks your competitor has (ALL of them) but we're only going to be talking about the ones from blogs, filter them by PR (if you choose to do so) and ALSO then automatically get those very same backlinks for your site! <- Allowing you to match your competition link for link!

    Here is how you do it:

    1. You go into ScrapeBox and select custom footprint. Then, you type in link:domainyourcompetingwith.com

    Then you select harvest. This is going to get all the sites that link back to your competitors site from Google & Bing. Save that list to a .txt file.

    2. Now, go to ScrapeBox Add-Ons and download the ScrapeBox Backlink Checker. This add-on allows you to get all the sites that link back to a domain from Yahoo Site Explorer (which typically shows WAY more backlinks than any other search engine).

    Use that to find the backlinks for the same domain you used in step 1.

    Add these to the .txt file you saved in step 1. Put them all in ScrapeBox and remove duplicate URLs. Save this new list to a .txt file.

    Up until now, you may or may not have known how to do the above. However, the next part is the really cool part.

    3. Go back to ScrapeBox Add-Ons and download the ScrapeBox Blog Analyzer add-on. Open it up, and import the .txt file you just saved. Hit start.

    ScrapeBox will go through every single backlink you just scraped and check them to see if they are a blog that ScrapeBox currently supports commenting on. If it is, it turns green. If it isn't, it turns red. After it is finished, you can "clean" the list by having it remove unsupported sites.

    What you're going to be left with is ALL of the blogs your competitor has backlinks from, and more importantly, they are all capable of being commented on using ScrapeBox!!

    Save that "clean" list to a file, import it as the list of blogs you want to comment on, and then follow the same steps you would normally follow to comment on blogs. Inside of 10 minutes you'll have all your comps blog backlinks (which can be filtered by PR if you'd like) and you'll be able to comment on all of them inside of a twenty minutes (as the list probably won't be HUGE).

    Want to push this even further?? Of course you do, you're on BHW

    Every step is the same as above with the exception of one little thing and the addition of an extra step.

    Instead of just using one footprint in your initial harvests (both from SB's regular user interface and then also the backlink checker add-on) you're going to be using a TON of them. Here is what you do to take this to a whole new level.

    First, you're going to harvest all the URLs from AOL, Yahoo, Bing & Google using this footprint:

    site:domainyourcompetingwith.com

    That is going to return ALL the currently indexed pages of the domain. Remove duplicate URLs and save that to a .TXT file.

    Now, you're going to add the following in the front of each of those URLs:

    link:

    Now follow all of the steps as outlined above. What this does is get all of the backlinks to EVERY page of your competitors site.

    Since Yahoo Backlink Checker is only capable of grabbing the first 1k URLs from Yahoo (as that is all Yahoo allows you to view) you might have missed out on a decent amount of blog backlinks if they were past the first 1k results. So doing the above extra steps means that each new page of the site you check for backlinks means a new and different set of a list of backlinks that is potentially 1k links long.

    Now that you know how to find, filter and steal your competitors backlinks, stop reading and go and do it!

    hit the thanks if you like it

    for the link:domain

    Google takes like a billion of year to assign links to websites. So you might have 1k backlinks in yahoo site explorer but link:mydomain in google might show 0.

    For yahoo: link:mydomain is exactly the same as checking the backlink checker addon in scrapebox for what i know. If you go to search.yahoo.com and you type that you will be simply redirected to yahoo site explorer.

    Bear in mind that http://www.domain.com , domain.com etc will always give you different results.

    Actually, google deliberately only shows a subset of links to a site, usually the higher authority links (or maybe sometimes, not even those).

    As you said, yahoo is the answer. But yahoo only shows 1k links, so have to combine the query with a lot of keywords, and then dupe remove (in SB).

    Hi

    As far as "finding all backlinks from competitors"

    I cannot seem to ever get more then 1000 results while using "Backlink Checker addon" (Yahoo) or simple google & Bing harvester. I am also using good proxies found through scrapeboxes proxy harvester.

    My competitor has 15000 backlinks while I could only see 1000 through this method. I think almost every other tool is able to do this exact thing. Is there something Im doing wrong ? Is this software actually even capable of doing this? Cause I have seen that method word for word....just never gave me any results :(

    No offense man, but you just copy & pasted a bunch of already posted tips & tricks.

    The least you should do is credit the original posters of the methods & then just say you've found the best tips/tricks for using SB on the forum and have compiled them into one place.

    The video twitter tip is great!

    But other than that all the other tips and tricks have been posted before. You just compiled them and took credit for them all! Shame!

    Hey, at least he didn't package everything together into a tidy little pdf file and throw it up for sale at DP.:D (although I'm sure that will be coming soon now)

    You're right though, credit should be give to the OP's.
