Default TIP: A Resource for Finding More URLs

Today I was going through www.StatBrain.com.

It's like a small knockoff of Quantcast.com, as it shows an estimated number of daily visitors and a few other stats.

However, I saw something there I hadn't noticed before.

I submitted a domain that had been a good producer for me so that I could see if it would find more good domains to use for PPV (similar to what I mentioned in my tip about expanding campaigns using Quantcast affinity).

After I entered my domain into StatBrain, it just showed a daily traffic number and then under "Background Info" it had a listing for "Links according to Google," "Links according to Yahoo," and "Links according to Altavista." Each of these just showed a handful for sites that were linking to the site I was researching. Not a big deal there.

However, I found something I've not seen mentioned before in regards to PPV.

There was a "Links according to AllTheWeb" -- and it had over 5,000 sites that were linking to the site I was researching. So far, many of these sites seem related to the site I started with.

There were many sites I'd not heard of, but they look like perfect opportunities for me to advertise on their URLs.

There were also some of the sites that I'm having success with, so I'm encouraged that this could be a good find -- although I'm sure that some (or many) of the sites will be junk.

I'm going to try it out and I'll post here what I find.

If anyone else gives it a try, I'm sure others here would like to see how it goes for you.

Also, can anyone write me a scraper to capture these URLs from AllTheWeb? It'd be greatly appreciated.

-Aaron

It's not up right now. I think you scraped it to death.

lol.

It's part of my evil plan... to tell you about something that might be good, and then keep you from getting in.

When it comes to AllTheWeb, you can results by going to their site and then put in:

link:www.domain.com

and

link:domain.com

Note: Carefully inspect each URL link in a web browser. With AllTheWeb I've found some promising URLs, but I'm also finding several news item posts and other blog posts that I know will not have the type of visitors I'm looking for.

Sub Tip Here: If you want a way to inspect several urls at the same time, get the Laser URL tool from Matt Harward (it's mentioned in the forum here) and copy your list of URLs then paste this list into laser URL from the URL Analysis tab (click on Paste URL list from Clipboard).

Once your list is in Laser URL, highlight those URLs you want to view (Ctrl + A will work to highlight all of them), then click the Button labeled, "Browse Page" and each URL will open in a separate tab. You can load up 500 windows this way if you want, but it will take a few minutes and I don't recommend doing more than 50 URLs at a time. I'm using Windows and Firefox for this, I believe Internet Explorer will work too.

I made a scraper for this - it pulls out the backlinks from alltheweb for any given url. You can inspect urls by opening them in a new window with a single click, delete urls you don't want, then export the final list.

I've added this to a search engine scraper I also cobbled together a while back, which scrapes google, yahoo and msn, including ads. I've also added in a quantcast "also visits" scraper.

I've stuck these three scrapers together with bits of sticky tape and blutack. I made them for my personal use, but I'm happy to share with this private group - if you want to use them, they're available here:

Hopefully fairly self explanatory. If you try them, do so at your own risk, no guarantees, might break, might not be there tomorrow, your home is at risk if you don't keep up repayments, etc etc etc blah blah blah

Holy Awesomeness Batman! That is like some sort of dream scraper. Pun intended.

Thanks for this huge share.
