    I am now harvesting for Scuttle/Pligg/PHPDug site for BMD.

    Is there a way with Scrapebox to tell if site is using ********
    or nofollow?

    Hmm, for some reason no follow got turned into a bunch of asterisks
    but you probably get the point.

    nofollow links do not count, do follow / no follow add on is there but it's not very reliable. generally WP is 95% nofollow, BE 25% nofollow, and you go on like that with generalizations of the platform to know which ones to look for.

    Blog engine and and other non-wordpress blogs are good for do-follow. However, I have discovered that google does not respect those no-follow tags sometimes. So, it is still worthwhile to try wordpress blogs as well.

    BHW always translates d-o-f-o-l-l-o-w to *********. I have not figured out why.

    The best way to check for F-ol-ow blogs is to use the check links feature in scrapebox and add rel="no follo" as your websites and all the failed post are f-o-l-l-o-w.

    Thanks everybody. Although I am not harvesting blogs but
    social bookmarking sites I think the same methods will work.

    I'll report on how it went.

    cash202, can you report on how you went with the scraping? I'm also looking for 1000s of shitty scuttle/pligg websites for bookmarking my approved articles from AMR... Any insight?
    Thank you
