ScrapeBox Method for Finding & AUTOMATICALLY GETTING Your Competitors Backlinks
The first part of what I'm going to share may or may not have been shared somewhere else before (the finding of your competitors backlinks), however the second part, the part that makes this method super sick, HAS NOT been shared elsewhere.
I'll tell you what the method is going to allow you to do and how you can do it.
The method will allow you to find all of the backlinks your competitor has (ALL of them) but we're only going to be talking about the ones from blogs, filter them by PR (if you choose to do so) and ALSO then automatically get those very same backlinks for your site! <- Allowing you to match your competition link for link!
Here is how you do it:
1. You go into ScrapeBox and select custom footprint. Then, you type in link:domainyourcompetingwith.com
Then you select harvest. This is going to get all the sites that link back to your competitors site from Google & Bing. Save that list to a .txt file.
2. Now, go to ScrapeBox Add-Ons and download the ScrapeBox Backlink Checker. This add-on allows you to get all the sites that link back to a domain from Yahoo Site Explorer (which typically shows WAY more backlinks than any other search engine).
Use that to find the backlinks for the same domain you used in step 1.
Add these to the .txt file you saved in step 1. Put them all in ScrapeBox and remove duplicate URLs. Save this new list to a .txt file.
Up until now, you may or may not have known how to do the above. However, the next part is the really cool part.
3. Go back to ScrapeBox Add-Ons and download the ScrapeBox Blog Analyzer add-on. Open it up, and import the .txt file you just saved. Hit start.
ScrapeBox will go through every single backlink you just scraped and check them to see if they are a blog that ScrapeBox currently supports commenting on. If it is, it turns green. If it isn't, it turns red. After it is finished, you can "clean" the list by having it remove unsupported sites.
What you're going to be left with is ALL of the blogs your competitor has backlinks from, and more importantly, they are all capable of being commented on using ScrapeBox!!
Save that "clean" list to a file, import it as the list of blogs you want to comment on, and then follow the same steps you would normally follow to comment on blogs. Inside of 10 minutes you'll have all your comps blog backlinks (which can be filtered by PR if you'd like) and you'll be able to comment on all of them inside of a twenty minutes (as the list probably won't be HUGE).
Want to push this even further?? Of course you do, you're on the Xrchat forums
Every step is the same as above with the exception of one little thing and the addition of an extra step.
Instead of just using one footprint in your initial harvests (both from SB's regular user interface and then also the backlink checker add-on) you're going to be using a TON of them. Here is what you do to take this to a whole new level.
First, you're going to harvest all the URLs from AOL, Yahoo, Bing & Google using this footprint:
That is going to return ALL the currently indexed pages of the domain. Remove duplicate URLs and save that to a .TXT file.
Now, you're going to add the following in the front of each of those URLs:
Now follow all of the steps as outlined above. What this does is get all of the backlinks to EVERY page of your competitors site.
Since Yahoo Backlink Checker is only capable of grabbing the first 1k URLs from Yahoo (as that is all Yahoo allows you to view) you might have missed out on a decent amount of blog backlinks if they were past the first 1k results. So doing the above extra steps means that each new page of the site you check for backlinks means a new and different set of a list of backlinks that is potentially 1k links long.
Now that you know how to find, filter and steal your competitors backlinks, stop reading and go and do it!
Most important: Buy private proxies for a way higher posting success rate. Don't use the proxies sources built into scrapebox, most these are banned and black listed. Don't mix public and private proxies. I use http://www.yourprivateproxy.com/ with great success.
