Have you ever wondered how all of these SEO’s scrape the web and get big lists of data? A lot of SEO’s do it scrape lots of potential blogs they can automate and post blog comments to, to get a link back to their site. Well, it’s possible with a tool that goes by the name of scrapebox, it’s only $69 and it’s probably the best SEO tool that I’ve ever used, it saves me a lot of time and effort having to browse the web and manually collect all of these sites that are worthy of commenting on to get backlinks.
So .. how do you do it? Well, you’ll firstly need to get your license of scrapebox which you can do my going to the official scrapebox site. Once you have your license you wil need to install it and get to grips of the basic fundamentals of the tool, learning how to import footprints, scraping proxies, IP’s, queries and such. It’ll take you a good couple of weeks to get to understanding the software fully but once you do, you’ll absolutely love the tool just like I do.
So once you’ve downloaded scrapebox and you know the basics of the tool, you’ll need to get yourself some scrapebox footprints (my favourite list is at semtuts.com) in order to effectively use the software and scrape some decent results. I personally use the WordPress footprints that SEMtuts have listed in their footprints post. Once you have taken the footprints from then, populate the ‘harvester and keywords’ section, include the keywords that are relevant to your niche and import your proxies.
Why Do You Need Proxies?
Good question, you’ll need proxies to stay anonymous from Google. If they find out the chances are they may decide to penalise your domain or to de-index you due to malicious activity. You can get a range of different proxies using the proxy harvester built it, but it’s not that good from my previous experience. If you have some budget, you can invest some money (below $10) to buy some decent proxies from a proxy company. You can find osme by Googling scrapebox proxies.
Once you’ve got your footprints and proxies in place you an then go ahead and click ‘Start Harvesting’ and scrapebox will go and find a ton of different blogs that you can post to.
So this is tutorial #1, if you have any questions please do let me know. While you’re at it, it may be worth checking out these funny memes I found. Have a good day all.
