    I dont really know what trim to root is.
    most people say they trim urls to root after harvesting.
    but what does it do? if i do it i got only domains not urls...
    will they be deleted?

    It's simple, when you have url like domain.com/blablabla
    Trim to root will change them to domain.com

    In reference to SB. Suppose you have an autoapprove URL. If you trim it to root you will get a domain which most probably has all the posts as Autoapprove.

    You can use it for several purposes.

    It depends of what you are after.

    For blog commenting, you can trim to root some autoapproved URL you have posted to.


    Then you can scrape site:urltrimmedtoroot.com to have more AA.


    If you have a tool which is recognizing only trimmed URL, like a wiki / article poster. well you trim to root your scrapped URL, to make sure the tool can recognize the template.

    There are many uses.
    You may want to scrape other pages of the site or they maybe bookmarking,article directory sites..which you can use in BMD or AMR..etc..
