    Hello everyone,

    I know absolutely nothing about coding and scripts and was wondering if it was possible at all do create a script that will run a program like scrapebox or AMR?

    If so would definitely be interested in hiring someone ASAP who can do this for me.

    If the program runs on startup (can start running without any settings) or is able to take commands from command line then yes it can be done.
    This could just as easily be done via scheduled tasks though.

    However I believe it will be more of the case that you will need a screen manipulating tool like WinAutomation.

    It's definitely possible, but I don't know which programming language you would need.

    If you mean running them by themselves, as in a scheduler, then there's an Scrapebox Scheduler. Google it, should be there as the first result. No idea about AMR though.

    Here's a little more detail, I work for a friends company building links and it has an API I would like to tie into. Basically, what I would like to happen is lets say I get a request for scrapebox links, the script would see this request from the API, add the links into scrapebox and start posting, once it reached 10,000 successful posts it would stop scrapebox, extract the successfully posted links and submit them. Sorry if my terms and whatnot are off, this is a completely new world to me.

    Thanks

    At this point there really is nothing out there, There is automation tools on WF that automate the actual window, but they are automating the button pressing, not scrapebox itself. AFAIK both programs you are specifying don't take command line arguments.

    IMO, for something like Scrapebox when you are not using 100% of the features (Just posting to auto approve blogs) it is probably almost quicker to write your own poster that can pull from a DB for blogs to post to with anchors/comments etc.

    So something can be written that will automatically add the anchors/comments etc and post to an AA list and stop it when it reaches a certain amount of successful posts? sorry if this is a redundant questions I'm just having trouble wrapping my head around this lol :)

    No I mean trashing SB altogether, and writing your own comment poster in PHP/C# etc. Automating SB is a losing battle, and hardly seems worth it unless SweetFunny (SB Creator) adds in command line arguments to load it prepopulated with lists.

    Posting a comment on a wordpress blog is not hard at all, it is just all the extras that SB comes with that make it worth the money. But if all you are doing is posting to a pre-scraped AA list, then if you are a developer you can certainly whip up something.

    I myself am in the process of making a similar sort of system (More so close to what linkaloha.com is) and for a single script to run off a customer DB, it really isn't too difficult, it just takes time to write it and iron out all the bugs.

    ahhhhhh okay, that makes more sense, would something like this have the speed/success of scrapebox, i run it at 150 threads right now and get pretty good success on a fresh list

    PHP wouldn't be my choice of language to automate those program. Php would pretty much only be able to start them up. After that, the programs themselves would have to sort their stuff out.

    Working on a php version of scrapebox at the moment.

    Working with wordpress at the moment, but lots of more stuff I want to add. List maintenance can also be automated, looking for new blogs daily, getting new posts from rss etc.

    There is a guy working on a SB API as far as I know, but he has been working on it for a long time and he plans to charge a lot of money when finished I think.
