    Hi All,

    I am trying to get some links - but I prefer to do them really slowly one by one. My objective is

    1. Use a tool to locate places where I can place links.
    2. Save the list to a spreadsheet.
    3. Go through the list - dropping links at the sites as and when I feel I need them.

    I need links which work in terms of giving the target site a boost in the serps - naturally - so the tool ideally would give me some kind of sort order by DA PA or PR or whatever else.

    I have scrapebox - but in honesty i'm not certain how to use it to find good domains which ACTUALLY ALLOW A LINK!

    Can anyone give me any advice?

    Thanks
    Spaceman.

    How about you take a different approach and go by what links your competition has?

    If that is too narrow, go wider by niche, grab top 10, go over their backlinks and link where you think is good?

    Hi Accelerator, thanks for your reply.

    I find that my competitor links (and there are only a few links) are on newspapers local to their town.

    I know that reverse engineering links is a popular topic - but I have tried writing to sites to see if they will link - and I never ever get a response.

    I've tried this in all sorts of areas, no-one will link - so I have to go the BH route.

    Even my own dam customers wont link to me - even though they love me!!!!

    I just don't know how to get links anymore - and yet I know that I only need a few good ones to dominate this particular serp.

    (Get the violins out lol)

    Good backlinks for free are hard to find. Can't you offer them anything?
    Guest blogging / article writing might help.
    I bought Scrapebox myself some days ago. It's great to scrape a big amount of possible link sources/customers and so on.
    Loopline's Guides are great: https://www.youtube.com/user/looplinescrapebox

    Thanks Pergonde, I am on a number of FB groups for bloggers - the total members is around 50,000 I would say.

    NOT ONE OF THEM WILL ACCEPT A GUEST POST!!!!

    The very second you mention it (and there has to be a link on the post otherwise its not worth it) they do a runner.

    I even tried to start a sub-group of like minded "link needers" as it were. 3 people!!! LOL

    (Violins again!!)

    In terms of offering - yes - I used to do that - it cost me hundreds of dollars in goods, and NOT ONE LINK IS STILL PRESENT ON THE BLOGS!!!!

    Some of the bloggers even NOINDEXED their pages - or didn't even link to the pages on their blogs!!!

    Seriously bad news - way risky these days. Total cost and a complete waste of time was actually $900 over 2 months.

    What's the advice you need? Link building is harder and harder each day. What you're doing sounds fine as far as technique goes.

    Bartosimpsonio - thanks. I'm looking for a good method of finding sites which will accept links which count. Footprints maybe? I can't go the mass dumping route on this particular domain - its too valuable. The problem is finding the sites.

    It is getting to the point (if not already) where a PBN with expired domains is the only way to go. I feel that linking on the internet is dead now - and as an aside - I wonder how google feels this may impact the quality of their serps now (and how they may adjust their algos to get around the lack of links).

    Personally this is what I do roughly to get list of post-able sites using SB:

    1.I put in a few seed keywords then scrape a nice list of keywords.

    2.remove any keywords that arent really related - for you this is good step because you happy to do manual work so keeping keywords relevent will keep list of higher quality.

    3.Get a list of footprints from this thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...sa-ud-senuke-scrapebox-footprints-1300-a.html - you get them in each different engine, sometimes I scrape for certain engine and sometimes I combine them all together and randomize them using free scrapebox addon dedupe.

    4.Use scrapebox to combine the list of keywords with list of footprints. Personally I do calculations between keyword number, footprint number and the amount of results I return so that it equates to 100k scraped URLs or so - this gives you a nice amount to work with later when you remove duplicates, low PR etc. I would also randomize this list of keyword+footprint combos just so that if you dont manage to scrape them all you get a random selection of engines/keywords in your results.

    5.You can then use scrapebox to check the PR and export them to list of URL|PR. Personally I then take that list and put it in notepad+ and replace | with , - make sure regex is off, then you basically have a CSV file. Open that in Excel and you have a nice spreadsheet of (theoretically) postable URLs against PR.

    6.You can use other tools to check other metrics but I am sure you can work that one out.

    7.You can also use something like GSA to post to them if you wanted to, but sounds like you will do the last stage manually.

    8.For proxies I am using semi-dedicated and I search on all engines, not just google. But you can use scrapebox free proxies, you just need to spend ages beforehand searching for and then testing proxies.

    Thanks David - I will give that a go and see if I can get a few domains to post to which aren't spammed already to high heaven.

    Much appreciated all.
