Holy shit, do you remember my black hat command center? It was an attempt to manage my whole inventory of domains, sites, accounts and integrate all the scripts that I was using at that time (Social bookmarking, sitemap submitter, trackback spammer, social bookmarking etc…) Unfortunately, I got involved in a lot of other projects and I never really had the time to develop my pet project to it’s full potential.
It’s been abandoned for over a year now, but for some reason I never took it offline. Yesterday was one of those days that I don’t know why I decided to login again and found this.
It’s been scraping keyw0rds and sending trackbacks like crazy (Talk about reliability!)…
- This system had a cron that scraped the daily search trends, and then scraped and generated longtails for each daily trend (+250,000 longtails)
- Then, after doing a bunch of other internal processes it scraped blogs related to each longtail and did a couple of tests to see if you could send a trackback to the blog. (+2,500,000 blogs sorted by longtail that accept trackbacks from my script)
- +80,000 fresh and tested proxies
- +20,000 ips from search engines
Too bad I turned off the content generation to keep the load down on my server, because I would have a database with unique human readable content for +250,000 longtails.
I wonder what would have happened if I had left a couple of sites running on auto mode on the system with all turned on.
