I see that the links that my sites get from scrapebox, are generally unrelated to my site, and often are from a foreign country, and are sometimes unreadable to me, like Chinese symbols.
I bought pre-approved lists on this forum, but I guess that doesn't always guarantee good quality links.
I begin to wonder if Google detects this, and either does not give the links much value, or actually punishes the sites? They must be smart enough to know, that a site on dirt bikes in china, would not be likely to link to a skin care site in the United States.
What's your opinion on using scrapebox? Is it worth it, or does it hurt your sites in the long run.
