Scraping large lists of URLs makes me smile

    On my VPS servers
    I make around $1 a day from Adsense. I am on 8,400,000 and counting, and I've got approximately 160 x scrapes of similar size to do by next week or whenever in december yahoo shuts down certain api functions. It doesn't make me happy, per se, but it does give me a slight feeling of importance. And a feeling of progress. That is, any time I am lying on the couch completely high from various epilepsy drugs, tongue hanging out of mouth, I can smile knowing my little laptop on the floor is scrape scrape scraping, that I am actually accomplishing something and making strides towards my intermediate goal of $1,000.

    Is it just me or is the CPA forum here hidden? I can't find it on the main page.

    Anyway, even though my xsserver.eu VPS functions like a 1 ghz celeron with 512 mb ram and lame ass 5 mbps connection, it's worth it for me as I can triple my scraping speed.

    scrapebox > xrumer, even though I've never tried the latter so call me ignorant. SB is a swiss army knife, xrumer more of a machine gun which can also function as a semi-automatic (representing the versatility in the platforms it can PWN)

    And I close with this, the hottest picture I've ever seen. Oh lord, is it such a lofty goal to wish to reach $10,000,000 a month, found my own record label and movie production company, become a well known, intensely revered Hollywood CEO/Owner, and thus attract the attention of Megan, whom I will initially dismiss with typical high status indifference. She will continue to chase as I routinely reject her advances, yet as I begin to talk to her, I notice beautiful things about...about... about her... her SOUL :whoo:
    After all, this is what made me become such a successful man in the first place, her SOUL. No, not the above picture. No way. How shallow and disgusting and pig-like do you think I AM?! Do I look like the type of person who enjoys searching for terms like viagra and animal pr0n, with a blog footprint, extracting all external links, running linkdomain on said extracted links, running said inlinks of viagra and animal pr0n spammers through blog analyzer, selecting no spam protection and do follow, then running site on said vulnerable blogs to extract all indexed links, then completely raping said blogs?!! Do I LOOK LIKE THAT KIND OF DISGRACEFUL PERSON?!!!!

    NO. You know why?!?! Because I MAKE $1 A DAY FROM ADSENSE , THAT'S WHY.

    Good taste - a few more months of blackhat and she's yours!

    Just the get some clarification, I thought that the site explorer yahoo service will be continuing, and it's just all the automated tools leeching off the API that will suffer?

    If that's the case, I can just auto scrape direct from the YSE results pages.

    Unless I've got this all wrong and they are actually discontinuing the whole thing in December?

    The yahoo developer blog is kind of ambiguous:

    The consensus is that the web based site explorer will remain and as you rightly say, its the API leechers which need to devise new ways to automate the backlinking data - I can see a whole new industry gaining momentum in terms of spiders crawling the web indexing backlinks.....
