For me it's harvesting blogs but it doesn't look accurate. If I use the custom footprint Inurl:.edu “powered by wordpress” “leave a comment” with some keywords, and it harvests blogs that aren't .edu blogs. Does this happen to everyone?

I always put inurl:.edu in the keyword part of the scraper rather than the custom footprint box. Works for me!

Wordpress:

Inurl:.edu “powered by wordpress” “leave a comment”
Inurl:.gov “powered by wordpress”
Inurl:.ac.uk “powered by wordpress”

BlogEngine

Inurl:.edu “Powered by BlogEngine.NET 1.4.5.0″
Inurl:.gov “”Powered by BlogEngine.NET 1.4.5.0″
Inurl:.ac.uk “Powered by BlogEngine.NET 1.4.5.0″

Forums

“Powered by PHPbb”
“Powered by vBulletin”
“Powered by SMF”

Guestbooks

allintext:[get a cbox]
“Powered by Tagbox”


when we do use these custom footprints, do we add keywords or just use custom footprint and let it go.

If I put the following custom footprint into Scrapebox, it will return 100 URLs (I have it set to 1000, and Google only):

inurl:register.php "Powered by vBulletin" "Version 3.8"

Yet, if I put the exact same text into a Google search, it says there are 58,100 results (and I personally went past page 90, so I know there are at least 900).

Can someone explain this to me???

----------------> I think I found the answer myself...

You need to put a plus sign (+) between each search operator so that it will search for ALL items you are listing.

Use "site:edu" (no period needed before "edu") instead of "inurl:.edu".

The site function can be used to browse an entire domain extension. Google isn't as smart as it looks, it simply looks at the URL and anything before the first "/", it refers to as the website. So you can use it at any level you want, the domain extension (.edu), an entire site (school.edu), or even a sub-domain (calendar.school.com).

Any footprints that use the "inurl" function can be inaccurate. You can't control how sites organize their files, and often times the site will contain "edu" somewhere else in the url. For instance, if someone ran a WHOIS scan of an edu site and the WHOIS program caches the scan, it'l probably store it in a url like who.is/someschoolsite.edu, which would cause Google to show it in an "inurl:.edu" search, but not the "site:edu" since the "edu" portion of the url appears after the first "/" in the url.

Now if only someone were to make a forum registration add-on and forum poster add-on!

One quick question.. if you were searching for relevant WordPress blogs that link to a Facebook profile or Twitter profile, what would that custom footprint look like? I'm thinking that would be helpful for guest blog post/link exchange site retrieval!

hey should be like this, i cant test it cause all my instances are running, but it will be a variation of this:

1) top box inanchor:"facebook" +
2) check the wordpress blog button
3) bottom box "your keywords"
