Verify Function Deletes Valid Links

edited August 2012 in Need Help

I just went into (Show URLs > Verified > Verify).  Just as a check, I clicked on some of the 'red' URL's' which were no longer supposed to be there. The problem is that I found a number of these links still there.

I went through about 10 of these and found about 3 links still there. Has anyone else checked that out?

    Would be nice if you can post some samples.

    I'm happy to send some to you privately. However, the easiest way to see what I am saying is to verify the verified links.

    Once you have a clean 'green' list, re-verify them. Some of those green ones will turn red. Check out those red ones. You will probably be very surprised to see that most are all there.

    What proxies are you using? Maybe some of them got burned by google so the links turn red due to bad proxies? I'm just guessing though

    Using 30 buyproxies*org. I check them regularly in SB to make sure they're all google approved. I would love to check your theory out because that is an interesting angle, but the verify function doesn't reveal the proxies being used - so I can't verify if that is the issue.

    In scrapebox for example, I have gone back after verifying links, saved the 'not found' into a separate file, verified that file, and found links. Maybe it is the nature of the beast when you use highly automated tools.

    I would encourage others to just give it a shot to see what I am saying - after you verify and get an all-green list, go back and re-run that same list. Some will drop out as red, but the links will still be there.

    It would be nice to export the failed ones as a discrete file, and then re-run them, and save the good ones back to the original file - kind of the way you can do it with SB.

    I don't mind losing the ocassional link (like forum profiles, comment links, etc.), but I really don't want to throw away articles with anchor text embedded - those are the most valuable properties for tier building.
