Default Do you use a URL Scraper for PPV?

I downloaded a nice free one with all kinds of bells and whistles here:

Laser URL

but I wonder if it's overkill. I always find myself heavily dialing back on URLs anyway and it seems like I can pretty easily grab the top 10 from a Google search. Why is a URL scraper so helpful/important for PPV?

Laser URL is one of the best URL scrapers out there. It scrapes unique results from all three major search engines (both sponsored and organic) and has some neat options (including quantcast, preparing URLs etc.) Go through the vids posted on Matt's site and learn how to properly use it. If you know how, you will realize what a life saver that tool is.

In General you will need a larger amount of URLs to start with PPV. Through tracking you will see what works and what not, therefore reducing the number of URLs a bit.

I guess that's the basis of my question. I know I can use a tool like this to harvest thousands of domains, but every time I've done so, I end up wasting a lot of money on domains that don't convert. Then I find myself back to just a handful or less of domains that are targeted enough to convert. They all end up being domains I could just easily pull manually from the first page of a Google search. So I just wonder if the whole concept of the URL scraper is overkill.

Well, what I understand from you is that you use one (or a hand full) of targeted keywords to find your targeted URLs and that might be OK.

However, if you want to explode your campaign and load all kinds of targeted keywords, but with geo targeting, mispellings etc. then you soon start off a campaign with a targeted keyword list of 2000+.

Now start about thinking to get each of the first 10-40 URLs for each keyword by hand, take out the duplicates, check quantcast etc. --> you will realize that you can't do that without a tool such as Laser URL....

I'm curious. Once you've tweaked your "winning" campaigns and have eliminated URLs that aren't converting for you, on average, how many converting URLs are you left with?

URL scrapers are good for getting a large amount of results.. ppv involves a lot of testing and tweaking, so often people will just run a ton of urls and see what works and doesnt

You can try my scraper (http://affexpert.com ). It's free during the beta stage.
It can scrape thousands of urls and show the quantcast and alexa rank for each of them.
Try it , it will save you lots of copy pasting time

Agree, thanks for sharing the tool. I had a look and it seems to do the business.

I am still a little confused as to which way is better - scrape or just take URL's easily found via Google.

Default Re: Do you use a URL Scraper for PPV?

I think it depends on how many you want. Sometimes when I am starting a brand new campaign and unsure how it will go, I just want to get a half dozen URLs for initial testing. If I'm only looking for 6 URLs, I will just search google myself and select the best ones. At other times I am looking to scale, so I will use the scrapers to get as many URLs as I can, and just do a quick look through to see if there are any obviously bad high traffic ones.

All we use internally is Quantcast and Quantcast's media planner. I find that the best work is done by hand. Everyone else uses scrapers that pull the same URLs so your basically competing with others.

A URL scraper is a tool in which you enter your keyword(s) and it will return the URL's for the top ranking sites for your query.

In theory, you in turn would use those URL's as targets in your campaigns. Reality is that you will need to inspect the URL's to make sure they are really compatible with your offer and desired prospect. ie. will targeting the URL result in sales conversions (and be profitable)? If you don't the other reality will be that you spend a lot for CPV traffic and waste money on unproductive traffic.

John

I find that using targeted search strings with a scrape tool can give you lots of great tartgets to bid on. Finding high traffic websites by hand is always a great option as well ofcourse

Laser is a great free tool if you need to collect bulk URL's. Mainly handy if you're using the smaller PPV networks where you need a ton of targets to get sizeable traffic.

But like others have mentioned, picking by hand after some good research is the way to go for the larger networks. Too many targets will blow through your budget pretty quick. I usully start with no more than a handful to start testing.

URL scrapers might be good when you have money. However, I don't use them. I stick with quantcast.

Affportal is the one I use also. You just have to make sure you delete URL's like amazon.com. ebay.com and the likes. They will just bleed your campaign.

We use Quantcast and all our research is done manually, we feel this works best and allows us to find urls that the big scrapers do not find and as a result the competition is lower.

If you are talking about the URL Scraper from Slowsmart.com through CNET.
Don’t buy it! You cannot get a hold of the company and I tried many times. (I am the first reviewer on CNET Downloads) It worked great on XP yet failed on Win 7 64bit. I liked it and I bought it and NEVER got the Key ID. Out $10.00, so what?!! (A cheap lesson) Now YOU won’t buy it… there is a phone # on my bank statement 613-258-6337, yet it is not able to take messages. Those jerks in Canada took me to the cleaners, eh. I have nothing against Canadian’s because I am one!
