    Using Scrapebox I'll harvest about half a million URLs of UltimateDemon compatible sites and it will only be able to use about 1000 of them. It's doing my head in!

    Does anybody have any tips on collecting a good set of footprints and using them with Scrapebox?

    All the best,
    Dan.

    Sites in the niche I'm targeting that use platforms that Ultimate Demon supports. I'll merge a list of niche keywords with a list of footprints for those platforms.

    When I used to harvest the URLs, I would always make sure that I remove duplicate domains, that alone would remove like 80% of URLs and then I would get much better rate of success using Ultimate Demon, etc ...

    Make sure you remove duplicate domains before trying them out. If your success rate is that low, maybe your footprints are wrong or just too general. Try using more specific footprints and see if that works out.
