    Greeting BHW!

    I have a quick question, I'm on the verge of seeing what to invest in with my money made from IM? Should I get a VPS with sb, senukex, amr and pay monthly, or just buy Scrapebox?

    Here's my situation, I had a small site thats about a year old, and last year, I managed to rank it the first page of Google for some low competitive keywords. I would like to boost my spot though into the top 5. So I'm wondering if sb will really help me out.

    I dont have linkilicious anymore, or proxies, so I'm wondering if scrapebox will work fine as long as I dont go crazy on it, and use it for 3 of my sites, and a few gigs on fiverr?

    Also:

    - Can SB index links like linkilicious? I have a new site I received from a client, and I want to index it first.

    I don't own any of the sites on this search results page or any like it, and im not trying to push anything to you and hopefully im not breaking any rules by mentioning it, but my advice would be to do a search on G for "c.r.a.c.k.e.d seo tools" :)

    Rua, you can't be serious with what you just posted.

    OP, get SB. If you're brave, use it on your own computer with excellent proxies, but you should get a VPS to use SB.

    I'd stay away from a VPS with preloaded seo tools. Not a suggestion you need to follow, but I've always felt safer this way. A lot of preloaded VPS come with cracked software

    In what way?!

    I dont have the time to be checking every forums rules on what is and isn't allowed to be posted so the way i see it im covering my back.

    As for get SB? Didn't you search google for what i said before posting?! Would you rather spend $97/$57 (with their discount) on one tool or spend $80 and get over 50?! Are you serious?!

    SB is gold and you can not run SB on your home computer. It will eat up all your bandwidth especially when you plan to scrape. So buy with VPS.

    You dont have the time to be checking the forum rules? Well i can see you getting banned soon, before even thinking about posting you should know the forum rules -.-

    Again im guessing the reason why LakeForest said are you being serious is because Googling for cracks is asking to get a nasty virus, its common sense...

    Lastly, only idiots pay for cracks... they never last and the quality is never the same. A one of fee of $57 is great... You'll easily make your money back. Dont get me wrong i have used cracks but once i can afford them i will pay for them if there worth it coz your supporting the product and future updates.

    You kind of made me laugh to be honest, so thanks :p

    +1 for Nickk, I use his vps and it is preloaded with scrapebox. VPS + scrapebox is the best decision I have made. Some tasks in scrapebox take forever so it's better to have a vps so you can just leave the thing running even when your own pc is off.


    Oh yeah, he's been sending me fresh proxy lists daily as well.

    I think you can start with home pc if you have a good high-bandwidth plan, BUT I would highly recommend you use an anonymous VPN. First, you don't want your ISP to get antsy, and 2dn, you will quickly burn your ip and you don't want to do that. I would get the VPN EVEN if you are planning to use proxies. For scraping, public proxies are the ones to use, and don't trust them to be all good (i.e. not pass your ip).

    But for SB and related tools on a home pc.. I would dedicate a pc to it that no one touches, and put the word BLACK on top of it.

    I'd also recommend going with a blackhat vps. Verify that all their software is licensed though.

    Actually I think LakeForest said it because Scrapebox is on the Do Not Share list, since the owner is a member and Exec VIP here, and the site mentioned by Rua999 is providing a cracked version of it.

    Hy.

    Rua999. First of all not all the cracks works as the original. If you go light with them maybe it is ok, but when you will put them to the test you will see the weakness.
    I also used the site you mentioned but after a few month I get my self in the situation in what my cracked version get a bug and with no support from the owner I have no chance to fix it. There was a solution but need a license to get it. And as I said, if you do SEO as a hobby no problem to lose some time (even month sometime) to solve it but when you do this as a way to earn money you will go for the license version.

    Now about the question on the thread.

    I have a private socks proxy server (SERVER not proxy) with 30 private proxy and a windows 2008 VDS with SB and all of them cost me around 50$ a month, witch I think is not so much. With a little bit of work you can set up your private proxy server in a few days (this also include the research). As an advice get a separated VPS an after then get SB. The SB license will yours for life no matter what happen with that vps. (in the worst scenario you can run it on your home pc)

    Why a VPS/VDS/Dedicated server and not you home PC.

    Because to use it to it's best you will have to let it running for days (I have almost a week since I do not close one of the SB instance) doing that on your home PC will make you pay more on the electricity bill then a VPS.
    Second on VPS you can optimize it for SB or any other seo tool and not care about other programs that usually you run on your PC
    You can let the VPS run for month and also you will have full access to it no matter where you are.
    A VPS is use servers hardware that in 99% of the cases have more power, the architecture is made for work not visual or any other stuff that can slow you down.
    In many cases the network speed is much higher then the one you have on home, this are connect to big nodes not on 3-4 tires

    Why private proxy and not your home IP.

    If you use your home IP for harvesting in a few days you will not be able to search google from browser without enter captha (it happend to me :) an my girlfriend wasn't happy about this) since you IP will go blacklisted. You will increase the success rate and the posting speed.
    Let go a little bit to the basses. You will find your self in the situation when in a posting list you will have a domain repeat it self every 10-15 links (I said a domain not a url) in this case the server where that domain is hosted will see 30 connection opened in a few seconds form the same IP so it will block all your connection. If you private proxy that 30 connection will come from different IP so no more block.

    There will be many more other reason but those was the first that came to my mind, and to write it all I will need a day....


    It can do that but I don know (I never test it) if will have the same success rate. You can do that by creating backlinks to the url where you put your links, Creat backlinks to backlinks.

    SB is a great tool, it can do many things and it can help you, but now depends of what is your strategy. It can do many thing if you know how to use it. I like to say that SB is a "MUST HAVE" or a "SWISS Knife". But as an advice: try to learn and then... learn and learn to get to it's full potential and do not be scare about this because there are many article and tutorials.

    Hope I was helpful

    Make sure your vps provider allows you to run seo tools on them. Some, if not most, dont allow it.
    Check of that, or you will be wasting your time and possibly not getting a refund.
