If you are an internet marketer (or just someone who wants to make money online from various online ventures), you have probably heard of the Google Scrapbook. You might even own some copies around the house, or you might even know someone who does. I bet you didn’t know that you can scrape Google results, too? This article will show you how. But first, a brief introduction:
First, the title says: How Does Google Scrap It? So, let’s get down to it. Yes, Google scrape data from other sites as well, but before we go into that, let’s explain a bit of what occurs first. The webmaster posts their site, and they notify Google saying something like, I am using some tools to analyze the traffic to this site (this is called a Batch Analysis Tool).
Google then analyzes this data and creates a Google scrape, which contains the IP addresses, domains names, pages, keywords, and more that it tracked. After doing all of this, the system tells the webmaster what it found. At this point, there is a second chance to appeal. If the webmaster does not have a valid, active appeal (e.g. they still have an appeal pending), Google sends the data to the Google Scrap team, who analyzes the information sent by the webmaster, and creates a google scrape report.
If you are not familiar with the Google Scrap program, I’ll fill you in here. When you perform a Google reverse image search, you enter in a URL, and if you have multiple links that direct to the same page, Google will create a Google scrape for each of the links. It then sorts the result according to relevance, so if you enter an address in the search box, Google will sort the results based on that.
This is where the Google Scrap team comes in. They extract the IP addresses and domain names from the data, and then they sort the results according to the words that were entered. If you have an unlinked mention in your website’s copy-paste portion, it will not generate a Google scrape for that website. If you have a link that is a duplicate of one of your pages, the Google Scrap team will extract that link and then rank it according to the volume of links that it receives.
Now, what can you do with this information? You can do anything! You can do things like check up on your competition and see if they are getting as many links as you are getting. You can also use this information to improve your search rankings. Perhaps you don’t have nearly as many links as your competitors and you’re paying more for SEO or maybe you can do something different and get a ton more links, but the results won’t be seen overnight. But with Google Scrap, the longer it takes you to build those links, the more effective your link building strategy will be.
