I am thinking of buying Scrapebox for my SEO work. But, I've heard of an alternative software called GScraper. I haven't used any SEO software before other than Market Samurai free version. So, I am confused now whether to buy Scrapebox or GScraper. I can understand any software pretty fast and price of both software doesn't bother me. I'll use the software for mainly link harvesting. So, what do you think I should buy? Scrapebox or GScraper?

    I've never used GScraper, but I do use Scrapebox every day for all sorts of evil things.

    I suggest you invest an hour or so on Youtube and see what each product can do.

      GScraper looks to be a weaker Scrapebox clone. (Note, you can get SB discounted @ BHW - ScrapeBox) The difference between the two is $20. I'd go for the proven tool, Scrapebox.

      That being said, I've never actually used Gscraper. But from what I can tell it doesn't have nearly the amount of features / addons that Scrapebox has.

        Yes JS,

        I'd agree with you on proven tool point and features that currently scrapebox does support. But Gscraper is much faster in scraping and commenting as compare to scrapebox. I've heard that now people scrape links with gscraper and then filter out the high pr and low obl with scrapebox. So that they get a high quality list for quality comments.

          Not a bad idea.

          I do a lot of harvesting, so maybe I should check it out. Although I can let SB run and get about a million results in very little time.

          Fair enough. I'm pretty OK with Scrapebox harvesting speeds. But heck, nothing can ever be too fast.

          GScraper has both an OBL and PR checker. Not sure why I'd transfer to Scrapebox to filter them.

            Kevin, so in your opinion Gscraper should be the option? I have not buy any of them yet, but I was thinking about buying Scrapebox but your post above made me think twice, specially when you are talking about volume and speed.

    I would stay away from Gscraper. I just don't know a lot of people who use it.

    And most people who own scrapebox, including myself, love it.

    It is truely great software worth every penny and does everything it says + more.

    edit: Mike Anthony does makes a good point. People tend to run with what they know. What I would do if I was you is find reviews from people who own both. And maybe you can make a more informed decision that way.

      Thats not a good enough reason to stay away from something in my book. I've been using gscraper for about 3 months now if not more and I love it. Scrapebox still beats it in terms of add ons but for fast scraping and filtering Gscraper with the proxy service is the way to go. You get a fresh proxy for every single query. Crank up the threads to as much as your CPU can handle and let it rip!! She's a nasty little thing.

      Very useful if you do a lot of scraping. And since you say money isn't a concern, get it.

    Word on it is that its ton loads faster than scrapebox. I intend to add it to my tool set just as many other SEOs and marketers have. If its one or the other then scrapebox has more features but the thing is - will you be using them? I also like that it does some basic stuff in one step that takes a few in Scrapebox.

    Its got very solid reviews but is not known that well here at Wf because its relatively new. I wouldn't make that make me afraid. There are some extremely good programs that never get mentioned here. People tend to run with what they know but there have been several cases where the established recommended program here hasn't been the best but just continued to get recommendations based on former rep (AMR and Bestspinner are examples - to me particularly AMR)

    There happens to be a free version if you google it so its not like you have to go in blind making a decision. You can even pick up both if its in your means and you find the right coupon for SB

    I dont want to be a pain here and i`m only asking but do you have a good idea of exactly what your going to do with this softwear ?

    If you know exactly what your doing and you know all about SEO and penguins and Pandas then fair enough but if you dont this sort of tool `might` not be for you.

    I bought Scrapbox afew years ago and i used it to death but to be honest i haven`t opened it in about 6 months as all the little jobs i used to use it for have been wiped out ie, mass blog comments, profile link indexing, and yes thats all the spammy side of scrapebox the other side is you can find golden gem pages to leave a comment on but i`ll tell you now learning to use scrapebox to find golden gems isn`t easy (it wasn`t for me anyway) its a bit of a learning curve and it takes ages to find a great link and after all that the links get deleted.

    My advice jack it off and speak to the warrior on here Mike Anthony about his course on building a net work of your own PR blogs because its soooo easy soooo effective and saves sooo much time and money .... Scrapebox for pros yeah great for everyone else i`m not so sure

      Pros were once newbies. You know. That all depends on the experience. Even before seeing the replies here I bought Scrapebox in the first place. About the gems, I've done a decent research on how to find worthwhile URLs for backlinking from SB. There are some tips and info that pros doesn't share with others for the sake of their success. Yet, why aren't you so sure that newbies don't find those secret stuff them selves? About your advice, thank you for telling me about Mike Anthony. I'll take a look at his course.

    I use both of them, since both of them are best complementing each other. Gscraper is way too fast and can handle more than 350-400 threads on a good system with good internet connection, you need to invest on proxies for its efficient working. I have used it with 35-40% success rate while it finished posting backlinks on 5500 AA sites and it just did that in 15 minutes. On the other hand, Scrapebox is updated regularly and had lots of add-ons. Scrapebox is one of the best tools for harvesting links, but I have found from my personal experience that posting links through Gsraper is the easiest and can be done with just a few clicks.
    So, I recommend that if budget is not the conern for you than you can go for both. And it really would be a great investment, isn't it?

      lol It can never be too fast:p

      And I personally only think it's worth it for the proxy service. That's what really allows you to crank the settings up to the max. If I still had to buy them i would've stuck with SB.

      GScraper scraping function works REALLY fast... I tried the free version and loving it. I also used Scrapebox regularly and from my perspective, Scrapebox have a lot more functionality with their addons..

      So if all you're doing is scraping then go for GScraper... I was gonna buy the pro version of GScraper just now, but their price has increased from $38 to $68 so I'm gonna wait until they give another promo or discount since I already had Scrapebox.

    A lot of people uses scrapebox to find relevant blogs and them they manually comment on them. Not everyone intend to blast with scrapebox. It can be used in white hat way. Depends on the user.

    Wow
    A lot of opinions from heads who really don't know much about either.
    Here's the story.

    I own both software.

    Scrapebox has one or two features that Gscraper does not,
    Gscraper is streets ahead of Scrapebox in every single similar feature they share. And when I say streets, I really mean a Universe ahead of it.

    Pro's of GScraper

    At least 100 times faster in scraping than Scrapebox (10 times faster than Hrefer)

    At least 100 times faster in posting than Scrapebox (10 times faster than Xrumer)

    At least 100 times more stable with error handling than Scrapebox. I've loaded a 270 million url file into it without it sweating, Scrapebox is what? 1 mil url max, if it doesn't choke and die first.
    It has been coded using TOT (Thread on Thread), meaning that if your scrape or post gets stuck, another thread comes behind it to close the thread and retry with a fresh proxy. Scrapebox threading just chokes killing your CPU and bandwidth.

    Posts to "Any" anonymous posting platform out of the box. Scrapebox posts to what 2?.

    The only features that it does not have that Scrapebox does. Are features that 99.9% of people would never use.

    Problems with GScraper

    Your computer will be not enough power for it. It really needs a good 16G Dedi to exploit it's power. I have had it on a 32G Hexcore scraping at 150k links per minute (Thats right 150k per minute)

    The proxy server add-on has a monthly fee. But considering they have 56 dedicated servers running 24/7 scraping worldwide sources. That's a fair trade

    The Dev's are Chinese, so can be a little difficult sometimes when it comes to communication. I have worked with them before with help of a translator and new features and tweaks I suggested where implemented within a couple of weeks.

    But honestly, it is really an insult to GScraper to compare it to Scrapebox.

    Scrapebox is a toy for kids, GScraper is for the grown ups

    I just had a quick check, so to add,
    GScraper has at least 10 "useful" features that Scrapebox Does not.

    Filter Duplicates urls while scraping
    Scrape url Titles while scraping
    Check footprints for Index counts before scraping
    Check OBL while scraping
    No need to ever stop to refresh proxies while scraping/posting
    Saves scraping to txt file while scraping to save memory
    Verifies backlinks after posting while posting
    Splits Do-Follow and No-Follow verified links into seperate txt files while posting
    Spiders domains for all urls within domain while scraping
    Follows OBL of urls while scraping
    15000 built in keywords out of the box

    This list goes on and on and on.....

    ScrapeBox works great, you do NOT need any other related tool (of course I didn't use GScraper, but I am using SB to get some links and post comments MANUALLY), so I think it's enough and works good!

      True, I'm all for the manual link building too. I just prefer GScraper because I get my lists, bigger, faster and more relevant to the niche site that I'm looking to build links for.

      Using the scrape url title whilst scraping lets me know the exact topic of the url without having to manually check each, one by one manually. This takes a lot of time if done with Scrapebox.
      And "time is money" as they say.

      But We are not really talking about Manual Vs Auto submitting in the thread. The subject is both software side by side. Which one is better? When comparing features, performance, price etc etc...

      Edit. Forgot the GScraper feature that also allows me to filter "Titles that don't include" So I can filter out Titles that don't have one or multiple keywords I'm looking for. Damn this list of feature Scrapebox doesnt have just keeps growing.

    Well for sure you should use Scrapebox, simply becouse everyone knows about it, and everyone talks good about it.

      I think Gscraper is more powerful - SB has some neat bells and whistles for sure, but I never really used them.

      I've done SEO for 15 years and I never heard of Gscraper. When I started using Scrapebox, I was in my "black hat" stage and I hesitated between SB and Xrumer.

      Almost all tools I encountered in the past were either focused at generating spam and boosting ranks in a quick and nasty way. Scrapebox is still one of my core tools nowadays, once you learn what to do with it, you'll be hooked forever. I used to spam with it, but now I use it for keyword scraping, prospecting clients, finding authority sites in specific niches, basic data-mining and a lot of other stuff.

      My advice would be to go for Scrapebox. This software would cost $1K and I would still recommend it.

    I'm finding myself where I'm wanting to do some scraping but know very little about it.

    I'm thinking about buying a scraper. I probably should have bought one back when I first started into internet marketing...

    So does the owner of Gscraper still support their product? Mike Anthony did you ever buy and test it?

    Or should I just buy Scrape Box and start learning the ins and outs of it instead?

    Any updates to this thread would be appreciated.

    For anyone who said GScraper is a weaker version of scrapebox I can attest that it is WAAAAAY FASTER. I mean there's no comparison. I don't even use scrapebox for scraping anymore because GScraper just runs circles around it. It makes Scrapebox look like Smart Car, where GScraper is a Monster Truck.

    With that being said there's a few caveats. If you go with GScraper you really need to sign up for there proxy service, so that's going to cost you about $48 dollars a month. Unless you have your own proxy scraping software, but the proxy service with GScraper is literally just set and forget you never have to worry about Google testing etc... If you're just going to use your own private proxies and nothing else then Scrapebox is a better choice.

    Also GScraper lacks many features and Add-Ons that Scrapebox has. The only place it's superior is in scraping and PR checking. Scrapebox is far more versatile and has many more uses.

    I actually use both every day. To give you an idea how fast GScraper is I'll run it on my middle-of-the-line VPS at 1500 threads and easily scrape 20,000 URLs per minute. Sometimes when all is said and done the scrape lists you get from it are multiple gigabytes. The list parsing capabilities are next to none. I think Scrapebox tops off at 1 million, with GScraper I can parse lists, dedupe, PR check, etc... lists of a billion URLs or more.

      I would buy both tbh. I use both and like others have mentioned they both have their own qualities. I'm not sure why people are claiming GScraper has far less features then Scrapebox though. I find GS has all of what I'd call the "important" features needed and a crapload more "better" one.

      In my personal opinion GS does not deserve to be degraded by even being compared to SB. GS is a far better built program period. No question about it, it was built with big in mind.

      It does so many things better and faster then Xrumer and Hrefer that it deserves its proper place in the pecking order.

      If you're looking for additional link targets from keyword related domains, you should try the url list "spawner". That saves you jamming up Google with useless search queries picking up the same domains.


      But yet I also use SB on a daily basis for all kinds of stuff I could probably do on GS. It's like an old habit or something.

        Is this a feature of GScraper? One of the great things about IM is I'm always discovering new ways to use the tools I already have.

          Yes it's called spawn.

          You find and filter yourself a good list of sources, you can clean them right up if you wish. Then use the spawn feature to crawl those links to extract other possible link opportunities internally within the domain.

          Using only search queries to find urls is one thing, but that method will never find all possible urls. Spawn just helps you with that.

      I have Scrapebox & found it kind of confusing at first but once you start messing around with the software it's like riding a bicycle since you'll usually be doing the same/similar things over & over... There's also plenty of Youtube tutorials, YT user Loopline has 100 SB videos.

      SB lets you automate a lot of different task. Personally I don't need 1 million backlinks for my own sites, I just need enough to rank my own pages. SB helps me find those sources, including expired domains with existing PR link profiles in my own niche. I manually build links.

      I only paid something like $57 for SB. I don't even buy proxies (lol) I just use the SB proxies, sort & filter. The thing about SB proxies is you have to get them right before you use them, then dump them & go back for more If needed. Usually one batch is enough for me for whatever I'm working on.

        A great feature with GS when looking for more exact link sources, is it's ability to also parse the "Title" of the page the url leads to. I find having the ability to target keyword using an intitle: filter gives better quality. Just my opinion.

        I had discussed with them several times about market pricing. But they informed me that they're running 50+ Dedis for proxy port scanning alone each month, with a bill of over $13k. Like I mentioned earlier they are not small fish on their respective side of the water and they understood from the beginning that to maintain a program that's using "thread on thread" programming meaning it runs at 6000 threads per minute (1500x4), would require a huge pool of open proxies.

        I don't think there's an open proxy on earth that's not found by these servers.

        So yeah Yukon! It's unfolding for me pretty much like it did for you. Found some good videos by Mike Anthony online that are good tutorials for the basic stuff... I'm all local so he's got that explained fairly well.

        This is the first time I've looked up since I bought it. I'm a scraping fool.

    It all depends on what your goals are and you are trying to achieve.

    I personally believe that Scrapebox should be the starting point given it's low price point. It can teach you what's going on and how to use Gscraper more robustly when you get to that point.

    Buy scrapebox and make the $$ from it to buy Gscraper as they are both extremely powerful and effective tools.
