Link Building With Scrape BoxUntil recently I did not spend much of my link building efforts around blog comments, that is until I found a great way to do Link Building with Scrape Box. Often the amount of work required finding a do-follow link or keyword rich anchor link via blogs was just not worth the time. Just when I was about to give up all together on using blog comments for link building I stumbled upon a blog with the LinkLuv plug-in installed. This led me to look for similar plug-ins such as one called CommentLuv. Both LinkLuv and CommentLuv are WordPress plug-ins that rewards commenter’s by allowing them to add keywords in the name section of their comment post as long as it’s in a particular format. name@keyword.

This got me thinking. Now I had at my disposal a platform I could target to obtain keyword rich anchor text links with high page rank. The only thing left to do was to develop a process for building a list of Linkluv and CommentLuv blogs. That’s where Scrape Box comes in. Scrapebox is a tool commonly associated with Blackhat SEO and though it certainly has the ability to automatically spam multiple blog formats Scape Box is much more than an automated spam tool. For one time cost of $99 its well worth the investment.

In order to quickly find and sort through LinkLuv and CommentLuv blogs I’m going to use Scrapebox’s link harvesting abilities. I will demonstrate this process step by step.

Step 1. Select a custom footprint, select the search engines to harvest links form, then enter the below query.

“This site uses KeywordLuv” OR “This blog uses CommentLuv” OR “This blog uses premium CommentLuv” OR “This blog uses CommentLuv”

This site uses KeywordLuv” OR “This blog uses CommentLuv


















Step 2. Select the Scrape button.


















Step 3. Enter in a few target keywords then select the Scrape button.

Step 4. After additional keywords are harvested select the Add to Main Keyword List

Step 5. Select the Start harvesting button.

Harvesting Linkluv Post


















Step 6. After your URLs are completely harvested select the Remove Duplicate URL’s button.

Step 7. Select the PageRank Button then choose the drop down option Get Domain PageRank

Check Pagerank

















Step 8. Click the Import/export URL’s & PR Export drop down option then select CSV which will save your list as Excel file.

Step 9. Open the saved Excel file and remove any row that has no PageRank. Ex. N/A Then sort the links by their PageRank started with the highest.

Now you have an ultra-targeted list of LinkLuv and CommentLuv blogs to obtain links from. Best of all with a great post and a keyword in the name field of the post you are almost sure to receive some great keyword rich anchor links.

Thank you very much for the interesting article. Scrape box is verry easy for use and effective in link building, but with new google webmaster guidelines, it is very risky. New penguin update 2.0 i now live. These link building methods are becoming more dangerous and must be very careful

What’s up colleagues, its great post on the topic of Scrapebox. I did not know you could use it for White-hat link building.

Would you still recommend using scrapebox after the panda update?

Adam November 2, 2012 at 7:36 pm

If you are only using Scrape Box for scraping data and not using this tool to automate blog post then yes. This has always been my stance as even before Panda automated link building is Black Hat. There are other uses for Scrape Box as well.

is this still working with ezine articles? I read on your youtube video comments that ezine no longer recignized these “Pings” is that true?

I have never used ScrapeBox, but if it works for getting quality backlinks, I should definitely check it out. Getting links manually is a time-consuming process.

Mike March 3, 2013 at 3:25 pm

I rather submit my backlinks manually to be honest. It just looks more natural plus nothing wrong with searching for backlinks. It seems that scapebox can be useful for the searching part. I may consider getting this, thanks

Adam March 3, 2013 at 4:26 pm

Mike, Yes I agree we are not recommending that people use Scrapebox to automate link building, rather this tutorial is about using it to create link building list that one can then submit manually.

Adam March 3, 2013 at 4:30 pm

We dont actually recommend using Scrapebox for automated link building, only for identifying site to manually link build on. Often if you take the time to manually do links your likelihood that it will stick is much better and less ricky them automated post.

dave March 8, 2013 at 10:39 am

Scrapebox is an essential tool for anybody serious about link building, hate comment spam but it’s great for finding really good targets for all manner of links. You just need to brush up on your footprints and you’re golden :)

Josh March 12, 2013 at 9:29 am

Scrapebox is not anymore effective, using it can cause a website to be penalized by Google.

Adam March 14, 2013 at 10:14 pm

You did not read the entire post. We are not recommending using Scrape for anything other then research.

Techya April 14, 2013 at 1:04 pm

Scrapebox is an very useful tool & worth it too.But,getting proxies is an difficult task,as above stated by josh its not that much effective now & may cause major issues to websites ranking.Thanks for the quick tut though!
