    Thanks for your support

    hi,i would like to know how long it will take scrapebox to harvest 100 pr5 sites and comment on them

    • January 9th, 2014 at 11:24 pm

      There is no accurate answer to that question. But once you have the URL’s, like 5 seconds to drop the comments.

  8. 1.10.2014

    Hi Matt,

    I heard that scrapebox does not act effect for SEO nowaday, I dont know it’s real or not, because I intend to buy it, how do you think?

    • January 17th, 2014 at 12:28 pm

      It has a great range of uses as you can see above!

    It’s amazing how many white hat uses that ScrapeBox has. I have been investigating it a lot and trying to learn more and the guide linked here was amazing. It helped a lot! Thanks for this post. I found that ScrapeBox is a GREAT keyword research tool and even serves a purpose in the white hat arena.

  12. 10.26.2014

    Am I right in thinking I do not specifically need ScrapeBox to build my target site list if I have GSA Search Engine Ranker ?

    I know though that ScrapeBox has many many many other great features (that I use a lot – mainly from your tutorials here) but speficially for target site lists can I just use GSA instead – rather than target in SB – export – import to GSA etc

    • October 29th, 2014 at 3:48 pm

      That is correct – although you can use Scrapebox separately to scrape sites and feed them into GSA

  13. 11.3.2014

    Hi Matt, first off – thanks for this write-up. I’m familiarising myself with this and wondering if you can suggest one or two awesome ways the scrapebox can be used in conjunction with Majestic SEO? Just diggin’ for great ideas. Thanks.

    Hi Matt,

    Just checking out your guide, though I click on the link and it takes me to Jacob King’s website and guide? I was under the impression that you had one as well :/

    I own scrapebox but it is very annoying to use because of its bad coding in a few ways. For example, it freeze may times in havester in some condition, especially long time harvest, however, I could recovery but need a bit addition works. It freeze at random points, sometime I forget to save progress. It a piece of awesome software but I could be better.

      Sounds like you are running it on a budget VPS or a computer with not much ram/cpu power with too many threads than it can handle.

  19. 3.15.2015

    Hey Matthew,

    Hello there, thank you so much for these amazing tutorials. I am generally the field of SEO.
    I have created a new website and now need to make it popular(I mean watched by lots of people) as it is a marketplace. It is a WordPress website. (not that it matters).
    Do you suggest ScrapeBox or GSA SER for backlinks and traffic generation?

    Thank you very much in advance.

      What makes you think SEO is the answer to making it popular? What other promotion are you doing?

    Scapebox sounds amazing, but somewhat complicated. How have others found it to use as a newcomer to the SEO field?

    • June 1st, 2016 at 3:42 pm

      It’s not that difficult to use really, the main problem is it does so much stuff that its hard to know which stuff to do first :P

    I have heard about the use of scrapebox for making guesst blogging, but never applied that in real even tried many times but couldn’t go through as a lot of websites have given email IDs which are dead from long.
    Recently I have heard of the blog commenting from Matt Cutts Blog – how he is using blog commenting as a weapon to increase SERP but for that you have to be very careful and always post comments on the highest rates pages only.
