    Finding Expired Web 2.0 Properties

    Basic Idea:

    Web 2.0 properties like Tumblr and Weebly have the potential to be extremely powerful. Through Franklin's blog you know about his tumblr method entitled,

    Login To See Link

    . Through Franklin's girlfriend's sales thread on source market we can see some pretty powerful results. Best of all the amount of links you can scrape is virtually limitless. My personal Tumblr network features 500+ blogs.

    TL;DR?

    What You Will Need:
    • Login To See Link

      /

      Login To See Link

      - I prefer Scrapebox for the tools (image scraper, alive checker)
    • Proxies - Preferrably Dedicated or Semi-dedicated. SB server proxies work fine.
    • Login To See Link

      - Provided courtesy of Ron on the GSA forums is a keyword list of the top 100k most search keywords of 2013.
    This keyword list is just to get you started. As you progress I strongly suggest investing in a keyword list or scrape one on your own. Using keywords that people aren't scraping for means you have the potential to find strong links since others aren't searching for them.

    1. Load-Up Scrapebox and You will want to do the following:

    [​IMG]

    So from the image:
    1. Custom Harvester and "Site:tumblr.com" or "site:weebly.com"
    2. Import keywords I provided.
    3. Don't forget to import your proxies or use the server proxies.

    2. Click Start Harvesting

    In scrapebox 2.0 you can select the engines you would like to Scrape. I scrape the following engines; Yahoo, Bing, Google, and Webcrawler. Once you have selected the engines you can click "Start." Scrapebox will start harvesting URLs. For this tutorial I did a quick scrape for 1 minute on Google. Ideally you will want to run the scrape till either your proxies die or until it finishes scraping.

    [​IMG]

    In the screenshot I am showing the urls Harvested as well as add-ons.


    3. Select Add-ons

    Scrapebox comes loaded with tons of free useful add-ons. You can download them all but for this tutorial you will want to download the following:

    • Scrapebox Alive Check
    • Scrapebox Google Image Grabber

    The alive checker will check header tags and look for 404 codes. In our case we want them to have 404 not found because that means it is either banned or open for registration.

    Google image grabber is for posting on Tumblr. Since Tumblr is image based you won't need content, at all. All I do is use the image grabber stick my keyword in and download images from Google. I then queue them on the Tumblrs and drop a link, mixing anchor text. This is generally accepted on Tumblr and doesn't cause any red flags.

    4. Trim to Root and Remove Duplicate URLs

    Before alive checking you are going to first trim to root. This removes any post urls and excess like:

    Login To See Link

    ." Then you are going to remove duplicate URLs.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    5. Alive Check

    First click "Load URLs" then "From Scrapebox Harvester"
    Then click "setup" and put in "404"

    This means when you are alive checking anything that says alive will have a 404 code. Anything that is dead is actually alive.

    [​IMG]

    6. Export Alive to Harvester

    Click "Export" and then select "Save ALL Alive Records to Scrapebox Harvester"
    [​IMG]


    7. Checking Domain Metrics

    Generally speaking I don't really like following trends in SEO. It tends to be what bites you in the ass. In this case though I sorta revert back to oldschool analysis. Since this method has the ability to generate thousands of tumblrs to register I will filter based on PR and I will only go after a PR of 2+. Once I have those filtered in Scrapebox I head over to the following URL:

    Login To See Link



    So analysis looks like this:
    1. PR Check on SB
    2. DA/PA Check on Trust Flow Checker
    3. TF/CF Check
    4. Backlinks Check

    The bulk DA/PA checker will show you the number of backlinks. Generally speaking if there are more backlinks there is more juice that will flow to your site.

    If you have tons of Tumblrs then set a basis for yourself. So don't regsiter anything below a PR 2. Anything below a Trust flow of 10. Same goes for DA and PA.

    Select "Check Pagerank" and then "URL Pagerank"

    [​IMG]

    Now, this was a mini scrape so there were only 19 that were either 404d or dead. There will be tons when you scrape longer.

    [​IMG]

    Check the URLs

    You can then stick those urls into the trust flow checker and register the ones you want. The process is pretty simple but very effective. You can diversify the platform by using different web 2.0s. For instance just because i have 500+ tumblr sites, it doesn't look natural to have an entire backlink profile made up of just those urls.

    Wow. That was one great guide!
    For low competiton site, you think some 2.0s and social signals are enough?

    That's hard to assume based on keyword competition and what other sites are doing. Then again in some cases I have had my expired web 2 outrank my money sites. To answer your question, yes, it is entirely possible to just rank with these types of sites and social signals.

    I've done it a few times, they have to be quite easy and usually not very popular yet. It's hard trying to find niches that are going to take off, if you can find something thats not so popular at the moment it will be easy to rank for and you will usually stay there if you keep building links etc.

    A good example is Stephen Curry the basketball player. He became super popular and a the keyword "how to shoot like Stephen Curry" boomed over night. We can't tell the future but if you can get into something before it booms you can rank it easy with social signals and web 2.0s.

    One thing for you guys that choose to use this method.
    I notice we're using that public list of keywords however we can get niche related keywords instead of just scraping for everything and anyone.

    Head over to

    Login To See Link



    Paste in some keywords related to your niche.
    Get 1000s of keywords pertaining to your niche sometimes it will be offtopic try to keep your keywords simple because remember google is a child.

    Here are my results with just one keyword being shoes.
    [​IMG]

    Another great resource to use when scraping for your 2.0s is to use a bulk checker to obtain metrics and thus we can filter out some of the shitty ones. In regards to 2.0s it's basically pointless to scan for DA. For instance Tumblrs DA will always be 99 at this current time (may change who fucking knows)

    Some alternatives to the checker you guys provided because we all know their api is getting oversaturated.

    100 or less urls

    Login To See Link

    100

    Login To See Link

    50

    Login To See Link

    10

    100+

    Login To See Link

    1000

    Login To See Link

    300

    Even scrapebox can use the moz api to do mass checks for you. I forget the limits but regardless still handy when the software will do it all for you rather than having to paste around a few places.

    I added a video from my old site. It got shared on BHW but still demonstrates the method visually very well.

    How important is tf and cf when it comes to picking out these expired tumblrs? Does it matter if its 10+ ?

    I don't really focus on it myself but it can be a good indicator of power. I mainly filter based on PA/DA though. For instance a PR 2+ with PA 40 is generally strong.

    I'm having a hard time scraping. I have 10 dedicated proxies from InstantProxies but whenever I try to harvest google, I get only errors, no url harvested. For Yahoo it works for the first 10k URLS, after that only errors. What could be the problem?

    Google is banning you. I should of stated you need more than 10. Contact support on Instant proxies and tell them you are banned on Google. You can get away with using the server proxies on Scrapebox though.

    Yeah, what hatred said is correct. I use about 15 proxies from insta and do fine. I actually use 20 but 5 burnt out and I'm too lazy to get them replaced. I can scrap millions with that 15 however I do get a lot of errors as well.

    Also another weird thing that used to give me errors was I had SB installed directly on the desktop and for some reason it conflicted with something and wouldn't work correctly. As soon as I installed it in it's own folder is worked good.

    Lol thats weird, I have on Desktop as well but seems to work fine.

    I searched for public proxies with scrapebox, waited till I had about 100 google passed, and I scraped with those, everything worked ok. Got about 100.000 urls. Currently filtering them.

    Btw, one more thing I want to ask you guys, does the TF drop after you register them ? And do you care how many backlinks the tumblrs have ? I mean do you check the backlink profile ? Because if you find a PR 3 PA 40 for example that is full of deleted or nofollow backlinks, I suppose that doesn't carry that much juice, right ?

    I still keep those ones, when I have about 20 or so I get them juiced up with a GSA blast or some other tier 2 links. Yea I usually quickly go over the backlink profile and see what they have etc. TF can drop if the backlinks have being deleted I found that out the other day when a lot of mine dropped TF. To be honest though when I first started doing this I used Tumblrs with no TF and they still worked, I just needed to use more of them is all. I went off PA and PR when I started, I still do throw in whatever to my network sometimes as long as they have no porn links.

    Ones with porn links I save and use them for stuff like all that pharma stuff. Thing like pills and whatever other weird niches I can find. Breast enlargement niche comes to mind.

    At the end of the day I'm finding it harder and harder to find decent ones with TF so I take what I can really. Any weak ones I use them for link building, Push other links to them etc.

    An example would be something That I did today.

    • 20 Tumblrs as the foundation
    • GSA tier 2 blast
    • Another blast to the tier 2s
    • 100 average PBN post to the Tumblrs for $10 (on sale at BHW)
    • 600 social bookmarks
    First time I've done this combination so it's just a test at this stage.

    Tumblrs are good buffer sites, separates your money site from the spam.... well I'll call them average links because we don't want total rubbish going to them. Seems to be working for me anyhow.
