100’s Of Links/Hour Automated - Introduction To Black Hole SEO

Posted By Eli On May 5, 2007 @ 12:06 am In Black Hole SEO | 343 Comments

I really am holding a glass of Guinness right now so in all the authority it holds…Cheers! I’m kind of excited about this post because frankly it’s been a long time coming. For the last 7-9 months or so I’ve been hinting and hinting that there is more to Black Hat than people are willing to talk about. As “swell” as IP delivery and blog spam are there’s an awesome subculture of Black Hats that takes the rabbit hole quite a bit deeper than you can probably imagine. This is called Black Hole SEO. By no means am I an expert on it, but over the last few years I’ve been getting in quite a bit of practice and starting to really kick some ass with it. In the gist, Black Hole SEO is the deeper darker version of black hat. It’s the kind of stuff that makes those pioneering Black Hat Bloggers who dispel secrets like parasite hosting and link injection techniques look like pussies. Without getting into straight up hacking its the stuff black hatters dream about pulling off, and I am strangely comfortable with kicking in some doors on the subject. However lets start small and simple for now. Than if it takes well we’ll work our way up to some shit that’ll just make you laugh its so off the wall. Admit it, at one point you didn’t even think Advanced SEO existed. :)

In my [1] White & Black Hat Parable post I subtly introduced this technique as well as the whole Black Hole SEO concept. It doesn’t really have a name but basically it follows all the rules of Black Hole SEO. It targets sites on a mass scale, particularly scraper sites. It tricks them into giving you legitimate and targeted links and it grabs its content on an authoritative scale (will be explained in a later related post). So lets begin our Black Hole SEO lesson by learning how to grab hundreds of links an hour in a completely automated and consenting method.

We will attempt to get black hat or scraper sites to mass grab our generated content and link to us. It’ll target just about every RSS scraper site out there, including Blog Solution and RSSGM installs including many private scrapers and Splogs.

1) First we’ll look at niche and target sources. Everyone knows the top technique for an RSS scraper is the classic Blog N’ Ping method. It’s basically where you create a scraped blog post from a search made on a popular Blog Aggregator like Google Blog Search or Yahoo Blog Search. Then they ping popular blog update services to get the post indexed by the engines. For a solid list of these checkout [2] PingOMatic.com. Something to chew on, how many of you actually go to Weblogs.com to look for new interesting blog posts? Haha yeah thats what I thought. 90% of the posts there are pinged from spam RSS scraper blogs. On top of that there’s hundreds going in an hour. Kinda funny, but a great place to find targets for our link injections none the less.

2) We’ll take Weblogs.com as an example. We know that at least 90% of those updates will be from RSS scrapers that will eventually update and grab more RSS content based upon their specified keywords. We know that the posts they make already contain the keywords they are looking for, otherwise they wouldn’t of scraped them in the first place. We also have a good idea of where they are getting their RSS content. So all we got to do is find what they want, where they are getting it from, change it up to benefit us, and give it back. :)

3) Write a simple script to to scrape all the post titles within the td class=”blogname” located between the !– START - WEBLOGS PING ROLLER — comments within the html. Once you got a list of all the titles store it in a database and keep doing it infinitely. Check for duplicates and continuously remove them.

4) Once you got all the titles steadily coming in write a small script on your site that outputs the titles into a rolling XML feed. I know I’m going to get questions about what a “rolling XML feed” is so I’ll just go ahead and answer them. It’s nothing more than an xml feed that basically updates in real time. You just keep adding posts to it as they come in and removing the previous ones. If the delay is too heavy you can always either make the feed larger (up to about 100 posts is usually fine) or you can create multiple XML feeds to accommodate the inevitably tremendous volume. I personally like the multiple feed idea.

5) Give each post within the feed the same title as you scraped from Weblogs. Then change the URL output field to your website address. Not the original! Haha that would do no good obviously. Then create a nice little sales post for your site. Don’t forget to include some html links inside your post content just in case their software forgets to remove it.

6) Ping a bunch of popular RSS blog search sites. The top 3 you should go for are:
[3] Google Blog Search
[4] Yahoo News Search
[5] Daypop RSS Search

This will republish your changed up content so the RSS scrapers and all the sites you scraped the titles from will grab and republish your content once again. However, this time with your link. This won’t have any affect on legitimate sites or services so there really are no worries. Fair warning: be sure to make the link you want to inject into all these Splogs and scraped sites as a quickly changed and updated variable because this will gain you links VERY quickly. Lets just say I wasn’t exaggerating in the title :) A good idea would be to put the link in the database, and every time the XML publishing script loops through have it query it from the database. That way you can change it on the fly as it continuously runs.

As you’ve probably started to realize this technique doesn’t just stop at gaining links quickly, it’s also a VERY powerful affiliate marketing tool. I started playing around with this technique before [6] last June and it still works amazingly. The switch to direct affiliate marketing is easy. Instead of putting in your URL, grab related affiliate offers and once you got a big enough list start matching for related keywords before you republish the XML feed. If a match is made, put in the affiliate link instead of your link and instead of the bullshit post content put in a quick prewritten sales post for that particular offer. The Black Hat sites will work hard to drive the traffic to the post and rank for the terms and you’ll be the one to benefit. :)

Each individual site may not give you much but when you scale it to several thousands of sites a day it starts really adding up quickly. By quickly I mean watch out. By no means is that a joke. It is quick. There are more RSS scraped pages and sites that go up everyday than any of us could possibly monetize no matter how fast you think your servers are.

This made my frickin’ head explode. :) I can see I am going to be writing some new code in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow…

#2 Comment By Cucirca On May 5, 2007 @ 2:59 am

can you give us the code? :D
This sounds great ;)

#3 Comment By Raven Riley Fans On May 5, 2007 @ 3:33 am

hi eli,

how do you do your nr3 script?

Is it enough to change the positions of the words, or should i kill some letter out of the title

like “this title is best” kill the “t”
and results in “his ile is bes” ?

#4 Comment By Mike On May 5, 2007 @ 3:41 am

Uff, for a noob this is too complicated. Can someone write a script which does that all those steps automatically, along with a visual interface guiding you through it?

I didn’t understand half of what you posted *lol*

#5 Comment By Raven Riley Fans On May 5, 2007 @ 5:05 am

btw eli: is this a way how i should promote my subdomains you wrote me via email? ;-)

#6 Comment By Aengus @ Awestyproductions On May 5, 2007 @ 5:08 am

Nice post.

This is a really stupid question but what language does the script need to be in?

#7 Comment By chatmasta On May 5, 2007 @ 6:49 am


No one is going to hand over this script to you. This is valuable stuff. If you don’t know how to code it, pay someone to do it for you. But you can’t expect everything to be handed to you on a silver platter.

#8 Comment By Georgi Mateev On May 5, 2007 @ 7:10 am

I actually have been doing this. The results are just as you described it. I didn’t know it had anything black hat in it, tho :)

#9 Comment By Tom On May 5, 2007 @ 7:21 am

Anyone want to sell me a working script? :)

#10 Comment By Jeremy On May 5, 2007 @ 7:22 am

Hey Eli,

Couple of clarifications. What are you feeding the scrapers for content? I know you are giving them the weblogs titles, but where is the actual content they are scraping off us coming from ? Are you saying one sales copy for all posts, just with different titles?

Also, how many of these scrapers actually link back to the original article.. I don’t see that too often.

#11 Comment By chatmasta On May 5, 2007 @ 7:30 am

Haha yeah, I wouldn’t call it very blackhat. After all, you are basically targeint gpsmmaers, so who cares? :)

Eli…when you did this with affiliate links, what were the profits like?

#12 Comment By Seocracy On May 5, 2007 @ 8:29 am

I’d like to someone to write a script for me that does this, then install it on my website for me.

Then Id like that person to come over and wipe my ass for me: two wipes in a clockwise direction.

Gimme a break buys! Start learning how to do this simple stuff yourself and stop depending on the charity of others!

#13 Comment By Anti-RegEx On May 5, 2007 @ 8:51 am

Does someone know the regexpression to scrape from weblogs.com? I don’t get it, the multiple lines are killing my tries… :(

#14 Comment By Alan On May 5, 2007 @ 9:00 am

If i understand correctly, the idea is to create a RSS feed in xml for a non-existing blog, but that will contain instead keyword-targeted text with links to your affiliates links?
Then ping everything to get your feed scraped and used on blackhat sites, thus having your content published by blackhat people?

Writing a dynamic RSS feed is a piece of cake, if you need to get started you can look at the tutorial:

#15 Comment By Tyler On May 5, 2007 @ 9:28 am

Then we go over a technique called link baiting. Hey guys! The script for this is at my blog!!

Very nice tutorial Eli.. Maybe you should just hint at stuff from now on because I am sure this is going to get quite a rush in the next few days. Actually though, I don’t know how many people will go through with the program.

#16 Comment By Matt On May 5, 2007 @ 9:32 am

Holy Cow Eli - my head just about exploded when I read this post. I love the idea - had wondered how this worked when you mentioned it in your last post. I’m definitely going to have to get someone to design something like this for me (I’m a lover not a coder :P ) Anyone on here who intends to make a copy of this holler at me with a quote for a price, I’ll make it worth your while :D

#17 Comment By Sponge On May 5, 2007 @ 9:59 am

One meeeeeelion dollars! ;)

#18 Comment By Matt On May 5, 2007 @ 10:07 am

Nah - not really - not got pockets THAT deep :P

#19 Comment By Tim On May 5, 2007 @ 10:35 am

I’ll let you guys know when I have my scripts written and working. :)

#20 Comment By coopreme internet marketing On May 5, 2007 @ 10:49 am

Now write me a script!

#21 Comment By markj On May 5, 2007 @ 10:49 am

Tyler, where is the script on your site?
I couldn’t find it.


#22 Comment By Eli On May 5, 2007 @ 11:08 am

I’m going to have to agree with most everyone on here.

If you didn’t entirely understand the post then don’t attempt it. There will be more posts in the future with lots of fun stuff you can try out. Just let this one go until you’re ready for it.

People with the regex question, it depends on what language your using but you will have to do a multiline match as well as accept multiple matches(usually m/ and /g) and put those matches into either an array or a scalar.

#23 Comment By al davies On May 5, 2007 @ 11:43 am

Guiness on Cinco De Mayo… “BRILLIANT!”… muchas gracias for another beauty, E

#24 Comment By Eli On May 5, 2007 @ 12:06 pm

nah, keep the exact same titles. Your not stealing anyones content. You are more than welcome to have the same post title. The only ppl this technique affects is RSS scraper sites so you can’t go too incredibly wrong with it.

#25 Comment By MyCommentsNeverWorkSoWhyBother On May 5, 2007 @ 12:15 pm

Don’t use regex to parse html/xml, its way to hard and breaks all the time.

Use python, BeautifulSoup, is amazingly esay and works, now with that said, wow this is such a cute fun project it can be done in a simple shell script using the usual suspects, gred/sed/curl/lynx/etc

To get your targets, why not try

grep ‘.xml”‘ shortChanges.xml | \
grep -i “\(xbox\|game\|wii\|psp\)” | \
sed ’s; url=”.*” ; url=”http://my1337.com/rss.xml” ;’ | \
sort | \

#26 Comment By tyler On May 5, 2007 @ 12:34 pm

It was never there.. It was a joke.

By the way everyone.. From my calculation there are about 30 blog posts/second.. This is going to destroy my server lol..

#27 Comment By Eli On May 5, 2007 @ 12:42 pm

As far as the weblogs example goes you can use their changes log. It’s about 2mb for every 5 minutes.

[8] http://rpc.weblogs.com/shortChanges.xml

I shouldn’t have to say this, but Right click, Save Target As (Save Link As in FF).

#28 Comment By gdubs12345 On May 5, 2007 @ 12:44 pm

awsome eli, thanks for this

#29 Comment By Nis On May 5, 2007 @ 1:32 pm

Just str_replace the newlines out befor doing the regexp. Thats what I always do

#30 Comment By Frank On May 5, 2007 @ 6:32 pm

Thanks for sharing this method, I’m excited to try it out. One question, for # 6) “Ping a bunch of popular RSS blog search sites.” How often do you ping, once an hour?

#31 Comment By Eli On May 5, 2007 @ 6:37 pm

ping once per group of posts. So if you got an xml feed with 100 posts make one ping to each of the services. Then repopulate the xml feed with another 100 posts and reping again.

#32 Comment By tyler On May 5, 2007 @ 6:39 pm

Do you use any specific software to do this? (the rss/ping stuff) or is it custom code?

#33 Comment By Tony 4 cliparts On May 5, 2007 @ 7:56 pm

Come on Eli, you always tend to put these complex techy stuff which I mess up. I get excited at the idea of getting more traffic and more money and finally end up getting nothing as I don’t do it right. Can we have a non techy post for all us non techy people who want to get traffic?

#34 Comment By chatmasta On May 5, 2007 @ 8:05 pm

[9] http://www.ilovejackdaniels.com/regular_expressions_cheat_sheet.png

Look at pattern modifiers. /i and /m are your friend. I like to use /ims at the end of each one.

#35 Comment By chatmasta On May 5, 2007 @ 8:07 pm

all your base are belong to us

#36 Comment By Bill On May 5, 2007 @ 9:13 pm

Thanks Eli, that was fun! Much easier than it looked. Wait and see what happens next, going to have to figure out how to automate the pings. Right now have it set up to randomly (my personal favorite) pull titles, and tie it to a domain. May have to cache it, if it becomes a burden on the server.

#37 Comment By DMOZ On May 5, 2007 @ 10:49 pm

that was the most confusing thing i’ve ever read.

#38 Comment By Eli On May 5, 2007 @ 11:09 pm

Sorry buddy I don’t know what to tell you. :(

I post the simple ones every once in awhile but they quickly get eaten up just because everyone is capable of doing thing so quickly. Then everyone complains about not getting the info it in time and the idea becoming quickly saturated. It’s a bummer stigma, I realize. What would you like to hear about? Any specific topics you would particularly like to read about? You know I’m always open.
Before every post I usually take a moment to think about what I would like to read about. That usually becomes my post topic. Then I get to read further about it in the comments and learn even more. I know that sounds unfair but it’s sorta my balancing factor. :)

On that, this idea is actually very simple it’s just that I use a lot of jargon and don’t bother explaining any of it. It’s not that I’m unsympathetic to the people who aren’t familiar with the jargon, its just that this is after all an “advanced SEO” venue. So I can either explain every single thing on every single post(my posts are already quite lengthy in case you didn’t notice) or I can just cut to the meat of it.

#39 Comment By Eli On May 5, 2007 @ 11:25 pm

Any particular step thats causing this confusion? Perhaps I can help explain it further.

#40 Comment By zecode On May 5, 2007 @ 11:56 pm

Hi everybody. Hi Eli.
I’ve just grabbed and analyzed a bunch of titles of recently updated blogs. I got it from

#41 Comment By Nis On May 6, 2007 @ 2:58 am

Hi Eli,

What format are your feeds in? RSS, RSS2, Atom?

#42 Comment By Arpit On May 6, 2007 @ 4:10 am

Its a great idea, but methodology went above my head. Can you provide us the script and more detailed examples??
Please please please

#43 Comment By Jason On May 6, 2007 @ 7:06 am

I found a much easier way of doing this which I won’t post here. E-mail heading your way in a few minutes :)


#44 Comment By Tyler On May 6, 2007 @ 7:29 am

Does the weblog url we ping with have to be where the “post” is stored? Or can we just make the post url be [12] http://www.sitewewanttopromote.com/?

#45 Comment By Tony 4 cliparts On May 6, 2007 @ 7:56 am

Hi Eli,

I would like to read about promoting your site through social networking sites. How exactly to go about it. You have covered this is various posts as tit-bits but I would like a single big easy to understand one. In a non-technical way ofcourse :)

#46 Comment By John On May 6, 2007 @ 8:22 am

I have begun working on a script for this, I will sell copies when I have finished.

#47 Comment By Jason On May 6, 2007 @ 8:22 am


I just sent you that e-mail :)


#48 Comment By Bas On May 6, 2007 @ 8:44 am

Great post! I’ve yet to come across another blogger who’s giving away tricks and tips like these :)

Anyway, I was wondering: at step 3 you’re talking about grabbing and storing all the post Titles from weblogs.com. Maybe I’m missing something here, but doesn’t weblogs.com only list the general -blog- titles?

#49 Comment By d_unit On May 6, 2007 @ 9:53 am

Thanks for such a valuable resource Eli. This blog just gets better and better.

One question: Maybe I’m missing something here, but could a “poor man’s ” way to do this be just to download [13] http://rpc.weblogs.com/shortChanges.xml, find and replace everything between the url=”" tag and ping all the above mentioned blog resources?

Perhaps I’m missing where the actual blog post comes from.


#50 Comment By Tim On May 6, 2007 @ 10:07 am

I was wondering the same thing. I don’t see how just re-feeding the blog titles does any good.

#51 Comment By Eli On May 6, 2007 @ 10:10 am

There will be a follow up post to this whole thing by the end of the day. :)

#52 Comment By Jeremy Luebke On May 6, 2007 @ 10:47 am

Well, Weblogs.com is now worthless. Everyone and their brother will be using those titles. Time to figure out how to get the info from the other ping services.

My bg this is I’m trying to figure out how to filter out crazy titles that are not in english.

If you want to get really fancy and even targeted, write a way to categorize the post titles and then target links / title that are relevant.

#53 Comment By Eli On May 6, 2007 @ 11:40 am

By the way. I’ll just come right out and say it. In that post I made a blatant hint to the next Black Hole SEO technique when I mentioned authoritative content. So if you want a head start on everyone you might want to start thinking about how someone like me would go about getting unique content that has been proven to be authoritative in the search engines. :)

#54 Comment By Jason On May 6, 2007 @ 12:27 pm

Alright, here is the moment that you have all been waiting for :)

I have released my automated version of this to the public on my blog. Here is the link:



#55 Comment By Raven Riley Fans On May 6, 2007 @ 1:52 pm

Hi Eli,

is it a good idea to combine this method with your network idea?

like one script for collection all titles and for each network site a ping script with their own rss feed

#56 Comment By Ryan On May 6, 2007 @ 1:58 pm

I think I know what you mean, and I borrowed some code from a “website generator” to help with this process. Let’s just say the posts read a little “differently” now.

Of course, I used less authoritative content…

#57 Comment By Eli On May 6, 2007 @ 1:59 pm

Not especially. That wouldn’t do a whole ton of good. However, it would be an awesome idea to combine this method with my Link Laundering Sites technique. Also, a little birdy told me this works great as an ultimate solution for “Power Indexing.” :)

#58 Comment By Slap Mydoodle On May 6, 2007 @ 6:18 pm

you can do this with php,perl,ruby,python and more. If you are a forever noob like me, I would vote for PHP, because php.net is an incredible resource for gluing this sort of thing together. I think the way PHP handles things like dealing with mysql is easy to understand, and i think it will give you more possibilities for extension of these ideas by incorporating them into some of the wide variety of php website scripts.

Black hole SEO

Following up on yet another silly phrase made up by Mr Bluehat, I’ll tell you how to do black hole SEO in another way. You know what else people scrape a lot? Search engine results.
So how would you go about making people scrape SERPS that inclu…

#64 Comment By Tim On May 7, 2007 @ 2:23 pm

That reminds me, there’s a search engine API that I was scraping for extra content on an experimental site and the funny thing was after 1.5 months my scraped pages started showing up at the top of the results in that engine and my own pages were showing up in the results I was scraping. :)

#65 Comment By Nick On May 7, 2007 @ 3:25 pm

Hey Eli,

Nice post! Some questions thinking about Google and contents being related.

As always if I am wrong or not getting it right, let me know please.

1 - Wouldn´t you filter those titles in order to make them related to the content you will use in your XML feed? (Relevancy)

Would be great to parse having in mind the niche you want to target (this would imply we will be using multiple resources to scrape titles and get some matches related to our content). This way, you get links from scraper-made websites targeting specific niches.

2 - “The switch to direct affiliate marketing is easy. Instead of putting in your URL, grab related affiliate offers and once you got a big enough list start matching for related keywords before
you republish the XML feed.” (Quality)

We talked a bit about this on your last post where you introduced the idea.It seems we will get tons of incoming links fast but these are splogs as you said (poor quality). Seems ideal for heavy link spamming processes and short term affiliate revenue.
Not that much for websites with long term aspirations.

In your last post, you mentioned that websites, blogs, etc could scrape contents from white hats defending their position against BH (including links to their websites) or unwillingly insert links to banned domains thus decreasing
their value as a source of incoming links for the BH webmaster (as a matter of fact this was the only part of your post I had some doubts about cus since white hatters are getting links from there also…aren´t they harming theirselves at the same time? Why not just insert those banned domains and let BH get horrible links that harm their rankings solely?)

As you can see, my doubt is always revolving around the benefits of these fast link building schemes when it comes to SEO projects. Link velocity will be great but what about results in the long run. What will prevail? What do you think based on your experience?

Keep it up!:)


#66 Comment By dave On May 7, 2007 @ 7:31 pm

3) Write a simple script to to scrape all the post titles within the td class=?blogname? located between the !– START - WEBLOGS PING ROLLER — comments within the html. Once you got a list of all the titles store it in a database and keep doing it infinitely. Check for duplicates and continuously remove them

Here’s how you can create hyperlinked keywords from the short change weblogs file on the command line.

wget [14] http://rpc.weblogs.com/shortChanges.xml

cat shortChanges.xml | grep “weblog name” | perl -ne ‘/”(.*?)”/;print “$1\n”;’

and the result …

#67 Comment By Eli On May 7, 2007 @ 10:34 pm

Heya Nick,
Great comment/questions as always. I’m glad you post them as comments so everyone can read them.

First your first question, I build links for volume. I build links for relevancy. Just by personal policy I never mix the two. Simply because obviously whenever you try to do both one, the other, or both will naturally suffer. So I always try to do each to it’s maximum capacity in a separate manner. It hasn’t failed me yet. :)

However in this case, if you were to do the affiliate offer rather than going for the straight link building than definitely. A reader already commented on this on the follow up post. He solved the targeted traffic problem by gathering tons of affiliate offers, making a solid list of keywords for each one, than attempting to match each possible title with an affiliate offer. I would stretch that one step further. I would put a priority on the affiliate offers. So if a possible match could be made, than i would insert the affiliate link instead. If no match could be made than I would use the title get an inbound link. Kind of like a Link Laundering technique on steroids.

I think i just accidentally answered your second question. Indeed we did talk about it. With the same intent as before, I would use these links for traffic, or use them for SEO purposes. Mixing them is fine, but do it tactfully and like you said targeted. These are not the highest quality links in the world but many will have solid link authority because the owner may drive some massive amounts of deep links to his pages through link bombing practices. More often than not, these link bombing techniques will involve gathering relevant links. So even though his page may not be relevant to your site, it can still pass good authority, thus boosting your rankings.

So don’t focus on being worried about building links too quickly. It seems logical that search engines would think about this and consider it a bad thing, but its simply an impossibility to make applicable without drastic consequences. Take for instance the presidential race going on right now. Each candidate has a brand new website. Instantly over night they all got absolutely massive amounts of links, most completely irrelevant and from random blogs and sites that have nothing to do with their subject. Can you see a single site that doesn’t rank for its terms. Even the celebrity candidates toppled down everyone whos been in long standing already. Gaining links too quickly is never as much of a problem as gaining links too slowly. Although if you are the type that spends 7 hours a day hitting refresh on the results page for your terms, than sanity may be a factor. :)

I think its a damn shame that people here are yet to truly understand and realize the power of my old Synergy Links post. If you completely ignore the entire technique itself and strictly comprehend that it is entirely possible to change the relevancy value of a group of inbound links, into a high quality and relevant link the SEO world is your oyster.

#68 Comment By Eli On May 8, 2007 @ 12:00 am

Thanks dave. thats perfect.

#69 Comment By Nils On May 8, 2007 @ 6:57 am

mmh how would you filter out titles that look like
跳呀跳的,我è¦?è·³é€²ä½ å¿ƒè£¡ or something?
i think titles like that would not be of any use..

#70 Comment By Foz On May 8, 2007 @ 8:18 am

use utf8_decode and then filter titles that contain 3 or more ? characters.
This eliminates 90% of the titles like that.

I use this to filter out those characters:

$val = iconv(”UTF-8″,”UTF-8//IGNORE”,$val);

it does the trick.

#74 Comment By netyolk On May 10, 2007 @ 5:30 am

That is only the first level scraping. You will need to further scrape those RSS feeds for the actual post titles and contents. We scrape RSS Aggregator only for the list of RSS feeds. Then, scrape those feeds for the actual post titles and contents that we want. Re-package (retain post titles, random post contents, replace the link portion) as your own feed . Lastly, ping your feed back to RSS Aggregator.

#75 Comment By netyolk On May 10, 2007 @ 5:32 am

Those are not the title you wanted. You need to further scrape the rss feeds to get the actual post titles and contents.

Introduction To Black Hole SEO

You’ve got to love a guy that reveals the deep secrets of SEO in step-by-step detail.

#77 Comment By SEORebel On May 11, 2007 @ 1:49 pm

Hi Eli,

First of all - thanks for an awesome blog. I’ve learned a lot from you! If you ever come to Copenhagen, I’ll be the first to take you out for a beer and some hot Scandinavian chicks :p

Anyway, I got an answer:

- How often do you ping the blog search engines with your feed?

Anyone can of course feel free to answer..

#78 Comment By SEORebel On May 15, 2007 @ 12:46 am


I’ve been scraping and pinging for two days now.

For some reason I can’t ping Yahoo - I get a 403 when I use the regular ping, and I can’t auto post a form to them due to their beacon cookie shit.. Anyone got a solution?

So I’m left with DayPop and Google Blogsearch.. however, Im not seeing my links in their index yet.. Am I just impacient or doing something wrong?

Thanks :)

#79 Comment By gimp On May 18, 2007 @ 12:43 pm

I think that’s the case with a lot of what Eli posts… very cool ideas that LOTS of people get all hot and bothered about… I suspect that very few readers actually get to the stage of coding and launching many of these ideas though for one simple fact… some effort is required.

That’s great news though, because the few of us that are actually trying and expanding on the ideas Eli is giving us will have less competition ;)

Thanks again Eli for another awesome post!

#80 Comment By gimp On May 18, 2007 @ 12:48 pm

Regex isn’t the only way. If you can’t get your head around regex then you can use PHP (VERY n00b friendly) with some str_replace and substr calls, along with some while loops to grab any content you want. Regex is a faster solution, but it’s not the only solution… and not always better for performance.

#81 Comment By blog directory On May 22, 2007 @ 5:36 am

#83 Comment By Decipher On May 27, 2007 @ 10:31 pm

hey Eli,

Wonder in the SEO World….

I am able to populate the Database every 10 minutes with the Title and URL from
[19] http://rpc.weblogs.com/shortChanges.xml

Now my doubt is, Do i need to go to each and every URL of the corresponding title to retrieve all the post titles??

#84 Comment By totally legit On May 27, 2007 @ 10:48 pm


help on a few things. Forget about the technical part.

1. Why will google/yahoo blog search index this xml that you’re proposing to create?
2. Presuming they do, how long before it google/yahoo blog search becomes polluted with other junk content
For example, first page of google blog search yields at least two splogs focused on adsense earnings

#85 Comment By Dael On May 29, 2007 @ 8:59 am

hey Eli,

Again good job with another very intriguing idea. I’ve got a question if you don’t mind clarifying. I understand that you scrape the titles and place them in the db. When you republish the XML feed, what do you use for content?

#86 Comment By Alex On June 1, 2007 @ 1:34 pm

Hi Decipher,

I was wondering the same thing. It seems, however, that if a blog post has a title (or if the blog template shows the post’s title as the page’s title, or if the services the owner pings somehow manage to get the title) then these XML feeds will contain the title of each post. If not, then they’ll contain the title of the blog.

I noticed that it’s got quite a few private myspace blogs (definitely not splogs, or they wouldn’t be private) and quite a few posts that only contain the blog title rather than the post’s title.

Well, guess it’s up to each of us to optimize our scripts accordingly….

Good luck.

#87 Comment By Paul On June 3, 2007 @ 7:50 am

Hi very cool post. However i wondered about one thing:

“So to keep in the up and up the Black Hatters always be sure to include proper credit to the original source of the post by linking to the original post as indicated in the RSS feed they grabbed. This backlink slows down the amount of complaints they have to deal with and makes their operation legitimate enough to continue stress free.”

I get that this whole concept is predicated on the black hatter/rgssm linking back to the source. But do they really do this? I was of the opinion that they wouldn’t care if you get credit or not, and your unlikely to find out if you do steal your content so why would they?

Thanks again

#89 Comment By Brandon On June 23, 2007 @ 3:53 pm

Hey, great post.

One question. What would you recommend putting in the main title, link, and description tags of the channel element of the RSS feed? Should it point to the site being promoted, as well?

Also, instead of submitting to those three linked-to blog search sites, would it work better just to ping pingomatic?

#90 Comment By Brandon On June 24, 2007 @ 3:37 am

It’s me again with a couple more questions.

Firstly, how often would you recommend pinging those blogsearch sites?

Secondly, with the multiple feed idea, what would be the sense of that? wouldn’t it just result in a lot of stale data as the old feeds are no longer updated and only new ones are generated?

I appreciate any replies to the above.

#91 Comment By Rhea Perlman On June 27, 2007 @ 11:05 am

Brandon, I don’t think that pingomatic has RSS content. It just sends your feed to sites who do.

#92 Comment By Brandon On June 27, 2007 @ 12:30 pm


Yeah I realize that. I meant getting the content from weblogs.com and pinging the suggested places like Google’s blog search, etc, inaddition to pingomatic? Would that work? They do have an RSS URL option.

I’ve implemented this and it’s been running for a few days now. Every 5 minutes it downloads the latest titles and puts 100 of them into a database, which is read by an RSS file. That script also pings about four different places. I don’t really know how it is working yet.

#93 Comment By leon On June 29, 2007 @ 11:44 am

Hi Eli,
Great post and blog thanks.

I have one question about this method.

It relies on just pinging your xml feed will get you ranked in google and yahoos blog search so the scrapers scrape your links.

Surely it takes more than a ping to get ranked?



#94 Comment By Babypar On June 30, 2007 @ 2:38 pm

Great post, I will definitely try it. I just have one question. The rolling RSS file that is produced - does it just contain the titles and links that have been saved or does it also contain post content?

Basically, are you just producing the same file that you parsed with your links injected

#95 Comment By Jason On July 10, 2007 @ 9:50 am

What’s the legal status of user comments (like this one)? Are they copyrighted as well? If so, who retains the copyright?

#96 Comment By 3gp On July 23, 2007 @ 1:19 pm

Hmm, I dont know if that would work, im sure they do a remove html tags in their scraping.

#97 Comment By stevo On July 24, 2007 @ 10:07 pm

Well, its 2 months on now. I’m sure most of you who did it are now listed in feeds. Any comments on how well it worked or didn’t? I’m curious.

comments would be welcome. I’ve run it for a few days now, and google,etc is picking up the posts, but I wont know if any splogs are picking them up for quite a while.

#101 Comment By Andrew On July 31, 2007 @ 6:27 pm

Well I’ve got my scripts set up and running… just a few quick, general questions:

1) The scraper sites re-scrape blog posts if posted with the same title?

2) How long does it take on average for the aggregators (after pinging) to index your “posts”?

3) The content for each of my posts is the same, is that a problem?

4) Eli–how in the world did you think of such an intricate strategy? Love the site.


#102 Comment By execute On August 2, 2007 @ 10:13 pm

this is a great idea… i love it.
i want to join to Andrew questions.

I also want to show you a little something that i built.
it uses this system, you can use it with your own site..
at the moment - it’s not sending the pings, only give you the xml file (it looks static, but it’s dynamic and takes random titles every time), so you have to send the pings.. so you have to send the pings your self.. i’m working on that right now
the only trick is… well, i take 5% of the links
if that’s okay with you, feel free to use it

#104 Comment By numba1 On August 6, 2007 @ 12:10 pm


It seems like you generate posts based on the same 5 articles over and over. Try a few sample links and you’ll see what I mean when you open the xml file.

#105 Comment By execute On August 7, 2007 @ 11:27 am

numba1, sorry, i didn’t understand you. it has a lot of different titles, much mroe than 5
are you talking about the description? if so, yeah, i need to put some more different description… i’m too lazy :)

#106 Comment By execute On August 7, 2007 @ 11:31 am

and another thing.. i don’t think the description is so important…

#107 Comment By MrMcGoo On August 15, 2007 @ 6:04 am

I sdtill dont get why you need to scrape weblogs. Why not just generate a random title with relevant keywords in the ‘niche’ of your choice?

#108 Comment By PonyRyd On August 16, 2007 @ 4:14 am

This site is great, been lurking for a while and decided to give this one a go.

Regarding the “rolling XML feed?. So I have written some code to do automate this, but due to the volume I am creating a new feed file for every 100 entries. My initial reaction was to create the new file, ping the services, and delete the file (to save disk space). Does this feed file need to exist for a period of time after the ping for the services to process it or does it get processed when the ping is submitted?

Thanks for all the great info - keep it coming!

#109 Comment By Jim On August 19, 2007 @ 10:57 am

Holy crap man, this post at first blew my mind! But being a perl freakazoid, I decided to tackle this one, to see what I could do with it. So yesterday, I whipped up some code, tested it out, and finally implemented it last night. Like I said, holy crap! The results were pretty immediate, in a place I would never have expected.

I am looking over my stats for today, and I the first things that is popping out at me so far are the search terms that resulted in hits! My site is all music related, so I was struggling to develop that portion, and up to now, it was only music terms. But today, I am getting hits from search terms like “Ron Paul”, “My Braces” and “download partition magic”. Crazy! The only thing that changed was to implement your idea!

On a side note, when I create the feed, I do a rough filter so at least get into the ball park of relevancy.

Thanks a million times over man!

#110 Comment By josh On August 20, 2007 @ 12:46 am

I just wrote the script and started doing as per your post. it is really awesome info you posted.

#111 Comment By Andrew On August 24, 2007 @ 1:10 am

I just started the whole process and some important questions come up.
I’m reviewing my server logs after I pinged blogsearch.google.com and seeing an interesting picture.
The bot came a few times, grabbed my rss feed and suddenly stopped comming for more no matter how many times I pinged google.

I pinged a dozen of times over the hour only.

Second, do I have to change the description of my sales copy for every in my xml feed?

Is there any danger of duplicate content in the feed when the same description repeated over and over again? Or do I have to use kind of markov chaines for every description?

Does my site have to be a blog to provide rss feeds to aggregators or it can be an ordinary site?

#113 Comment By Andrew On August 25, 2007 @ 12:12 am

Hi, Jim. You said the results were pretty immediate. I tested my feed out on two of my sites. The second being 4 years old.
SE bots came and grabbed my feed only a few times no matter how often I pinged.
I checked my feed on the rss validators, it’s ok. I also provide different content every time I output the feed.
What’s wrong? How can I make the bots come more often and grab more content?

#118 Comment By Jim On September 12, 2007 @ 1:31 pm

Andrew, sorry, I haven’t stopped by here in while, and missed your question entirely.

I am seeing the same things your seeing to some degree. I ping out every 10 minutes, so in theory, I should be seeing the bots hit me 144 times a day or so. Yet looking at my stats, I see, for example 197 hits on feeds.xml. Not sure why this is, or how to fix it yet, but I am researching.

It might be related to the where and how my pinging script works…it was a real hack, and just today, I rewrote it using some code I picked up out on the net in preparation for selling this stuff. In addition to doing a far better job of pinging, I am also pinging a hell of a lot more services. Previously, my pinger was hitting two sites only.

I’m not too worried, as I am still refining this, but even as it, I am still adding inbound links every day, and actually see a lot of hits from this method in my metrics. This is also in addition to the every growing weird search terms that bring people to my site. :-D

I just wrote an implementation of this a few days ago… not sure it’s exactly the way Eli prescribes but it works damn well… hundreds of pages found in Google for a distinct blurb I inserted into all my rss entries.

The thing that really gets me (other than how fast it works) is that the splogs really do link to me, and of all the one’s I’ve looked at, only about 5% use no follow… crazy.

Let me see if I’ve got this straight then:

1. Read [24] http://rpc.weblogs.com/shortChanges.xml

2. Extract all the URLs and read each one, looking for any RSS feeds on the page.

3. Read each of those RSS feeds and scrape the ’s.

4. Build your own feed with those titles and ping it to google blog search etc.

Guys isn’t Google smart enough to know that gaining 100-1000 links per day or hour, is seemed as spam and will derank you faster than a gerbil crawling through Richard Gere’s asscrack?

Sorry for bumping this, but your site will go through the black hole if you get links too fast.

#143 Comment By Neil On December 3, 2007 @ 5:35 am

I remember reading a bit about Google’s search patent in which they explain the factors that determine ranking, and speed of gaining backlinks is one of them.

This doesn’t mean gaining backlinks quickly will have a negative effect - the moment it does, as Eli pointed out in another post, the rules of the game will change because you could poison your competitors by rapidly gaining crappy backlinks to their sites.

Clearly rapid backlink growth will not give you the same advantage as slow and gradual growth, but you’d still be better ranked than sites that have only a few backlinks.

#144 Comment By Peter On December 9, 2007 @ 8:16 am

that sounds fantastic. But also very difficult..

#159 Comment By Peter On January 30, 2008 @ 8:14 am

I gave this a shot so I thought I’d share my results. Not the same as those of others who have tried it, I warn…

1) Getting the blog titles: You don’t need to go to the blogs to fetch the post titles. This is very time consuming. I tried it and you won’t get very many titles this way. You can get the titles of the blogs directly off of the home page at [27] http://weblogs.com/pingservice?action=weblogsping which has a lot more titles and is updated about once a second. You can scrape 35 to 40 titles a second here without a second thought since the javascript in the home page is doing exactly that - fetching this page once per second (or thereabouts).

2) Affiliate products: I chose to do the affiliate version of the plan. I created a ClickBank database with 6000 or so products. I would run through the blog titles looking for a match with the affiliate product. Getting a good match requires very sophisticated techniques which I don’t have. Sometimes the match would be completely irrelevent but sometimes it was good.

3) RSS files: I maintained 24 rss files. I updated one per hour so each file remained unchanged for a whole day. Once per hour I would go through step 2 until I found 100 titles. I filtered out obscene stuff. You may wish to do the same. I would set the title field to the one I scraped from weblogs.com, the description field to the ClickBank product description. The link would be my cloaked CB hot link.

4) Results: I ran this for 6 days then stopped. I omitted 16 January as it was a partial day. These are the dates and unique hosts for the day period:
Date Unique Hosts

As you can see this is not server-busting traffic. The feed crawlers account for about 12 to 15 of the hosts. Which means that I got anywhere from 5 to 80 visits a day. As these results do not square with the experiences of others I would appreciate if any errors could be spotted.

Another Excellent post.

#161 Comment By affiliate summit west On February 6, 2008 @ 9:24 pm

The main issue is that google is cracking down heavily on this

#162 Comment By Free online contests On February 8, 2008 @ 11:31 pm

Of course google is cracking down on this stuff, they always crack down on black hat/hole. Thats why you pump as much traffic/links as possible before they shut down your site/loophole.

Quantity ftw when it comes to black techniques.

I am a newcomer to your Bluehatseo blog and I’m blown away! My knowledge of seo is sketchy to begin with, and what I know of “blackhat” doesn’t really go any further than xss, blogfarms, and cloaking. I really appreciate you–and everyone who comments–for taking the conversation as far as you have away from the mainstream.

By the way, in one of the other posts or comments, you mentioned a coder you trust. I’ll find that post again, eventually, but any chance you or one of the other reader remind of the name? You identified the person as tobcn or something like that. Thanks!

Can you send me the code of the script to use ?

Thanks in advance.


#169 Comment By mb On February 15, 2008 @ 7:58 am

this can be done without a db, just store the titles in an array. go through the scrape a few times until you end up with 100 or so titles (after removing duplicates and foreign) then create a static xml file, based on the time or date, then ping your favourite search engine with the file path.

i have my script wait 10 seconds in between scrapes and does it 3 times, grabs about 30 titles each time it runs. so i end up with a static rss feed, 30 posts long. not bad for about 50 lines of php and no DB!

cheers Eli.

p.s heres some regex for the weblogs titles…
‘/” class=”pingLink”>\s(.*)/m’
just remove the rubbish around the title with a couple of str_replace’s
or email me for the weblogs.com scrape and ping script, [29] inf@disfo.org

#170 Comment By Matt On February 16, 2008 @ 3:40 am

This method no longer works. I’ve been able to ping Google, Technorati, Ping-O-Matic and IceRocket. I’ve had 0 luck getting more links, in fact I even lost a link. The bad thing about coming up with great ideas, such as this one, is that once everybody starts doing it, it winds up getting “patched”. I find it very hard to drive traffic to my sites, and I’ve been trying many methods with no luck. Legit SEO is VERY time consuming, while using a more “automated” approach seems ideal. I realize that automating SEO is frowned upon because everybody would be doing it. However, there’s GOT to be a way to bring traffic to a site, and make a few bucks off of google ads. Even sites with “real” content, not generated content, are not coming up in the first couple pages of the search engines. So, if somebody can be a visionary for a SEO strategy that will work, PLEASE contact me. I’m an idea man, but this time I’m out of ideas.

#195 Comment By PonyRyd On April 15, 2008 @ 7:29 am

Anyone actually try this?

I have done as described and it quickly, I mean QUICKLY, ate up all my bandwidth. I had the RSS XML feeds on a server that was being trashed with all the bots coming to check out my updates. I can not comment on increasing links, but I definately saw a spike in traffic to the pages (on a different server) I linked to in the XML which therefore increased my adsense earnings. So I would like to keep this going.

Any feedback regarding how to create and ping the XML without making a house payment to pay for the bandwidth?

#198 Comment By pua On April 28, 2008 @ 4:47 am

Just get on a hosting plan with better if not unlimited bandwidth.

I have only just started this strategy, so still have to find out the effect. I have pinged around 500 new xml feeds already. Reread the article and I found I forgot to add html links to the descriptions. Will do that on my next batch!

#212 Comment By Dave On July 13, 2008 @ 6:36 pm

Hey Eli,

Love the technique, followed it enough to do it on my own. I got as far as creating a php script that get the titles of the posts on weblogs.com, made the rss feed to go with it, got the RSS pinger ready, only thing is my XML feed rarely validates because so many of the titles contain ‘illegal characters.’ I’ve tried using functions like php’s htmlentities but no matter what I do I get this message when I try to validate the rss:

XML parsing error: :12:75: not well-formed (invalid token)

Thus my feed will rarely get spread around because it doesn’t validate, right?

Any suggestions?

#213 Comment By internet marketing On July 16, 2008 @ 4:04 am

just like Dave (see above) it seems that I have the same problems with my rss-feeds:
XML parsing error: :12:75: not well-formed (invalid token) Any suggestions? Regards Annemarie

#214 Comment By Kansas City Search Engine Optimization On July 17, 2008 @ 12:20 pm

Free dinner for whoever fixes this!

#215 Comment By PonyRyd On July 21, 2008 @ 6:49 pm

Here is the php code I use, not 100% but better than nothing:

$urls = $doc->getElementsByTagName( "weblog" );
foreach( $urls as $url )
$EntryName = $url->getAttribute( 'name' );
$validtext = TRUE;

// test for ASCII Characters higher the 127
$test = explode(' ', $EntryName );
foreach($test as $s) {
if (ord($s) > 127){
$validtext = FALSE;

if ($validtext)
$modEntryName = str_replace("’", "", $EntryName);
$mod2EntryName = str_replace("»", "", $modEntryName);
writeLink($mod2EntryName, $link);

#236 Comment By Idan On September 10, 2008 @ 6:54 pm

Nice article, but I didn’t understand something.

After you create your own rss feed that links to your affiliate pages for example, why would the rss scrapers keep the link to your site?

I thought that these people are only interested in the CONTENT of your RSS, so once they copy your content, why should they link to the scrapped content source?


#237 Comment By Hamptom On September 21, 2008 @ 11:48 pm

Give each post within the feed the same title as you scraped from Weblogs. Then change the URL output field to your website address. Not the original! Haha that would do no good obviously. Then create a nice little sales post for your site. Don’t forget to include some html links inside your post content just in case their software forgets to remove it.

#238 Comment By Belleville Real Estate On October 22, 2008 @ 1:01 am

Nice idea that may work well with affiliate offers but I don’t think it would be a good idea with adsense as you might get banned due to the fact that it is scraped content.

#246 Comment By Seoeoeo On March 4, 2009 @ 8:11 pm

Once implemented, how can you tell if your feed is being scraped?

#247 Comment By Atlanta Web Design On March 10, 2009 @ 8:37 pm


I think that you would be able to tell once you start getting the backlinks and/or traffic from the sites scraping your feed.


Once you have this setup do you ping the appropriate servers from your server? In your ‘Blog Ping Hack’ post you said that you avoid pinging from your server at all costs, so would you handle this job the same way as the Blog Ping Hack? Would you recommend combining the two techniques?

Cool idea that may work well with affiliate offers but I don’t think it would be a good idea with adsense

#318 Comment By girls On October 21, 2011 @ 4:19 am

Holy Cow Eli - my head just about exploded when I read this post. I love the idea - had wondered how this worked when you mentioned it in your last post. I’m definitely going to have to get someone to design something like this for me (I’m a lover not a coder :P ) Anyone on here who intends to make a copy of this holler at me with a quote for a price, I’ll make it worth your while :D
