List of changes and improvements in XRumerAugust 23, 2019
On new version our team worked more than 6 months and added many improvements, bug fixies and changes!
Please spend up to 10 minutes of your time to read description to get more efficiency from new version. It’s really important!
Our team have done considerable work in training of XRumer's for new textual captcha used on popular and trusted forums and most moderated. For this purpose, a new crowdsource service was used, which showed very high efficiency at relatively low cost and it will be used in the future.
In reports you can see following report type “…"...textual captcha solved[v19];..." …”- those are text captchas solved via new method. Most of them are trusted, popular. But of course moderated.
We have also greatly improved general logic of form processing – improved bypass of anti-bot protection from last version of IPBoard and XenForo, significantly improved processing of unknown fields and forms. It was upgraded general logic of standard form processing same as work with WordPress and Joomla.
Also fixed work of #trans macros (described work of it below), which helps to increase the potential traffic and benefit of posting by several times.
In order to compare the difference between previous and new version, it was traditionally made a test with 2 identical Projects, according to the following scheme:
- 1. Was made pre-registration of profiles(accounts) in "Registration only" mode. It was used a small database of trusted forums for 16.000 links.
- 2. After several days was made posting using “"Posting from previously registered user"” on same database + additional posting on R-database for “up” of topics.
- 3. Besides this was made submitting on contact forms, on different database on 930 000 resources.
Moreover, the text of message was created using new social engineering (so called viral topics/messages/images), making accent on maximal provocation for clicking on the link. In future lesson we will describe the method.
As results – we got huge difference on direct traffic received, which clearly indicates higher efficiency and success rate of new version:
List of changes and improvements from XRumer 19.0
Documents for comparison:
- Initial database of forums
- Initial database of contact forms
- Reports of XRumer 18.0.1 + XEvil 3.0.4 work
- Reports of XRumer 19.0 + XEvil 4.0 Beta work
- Video of stats on results of work
On contact forms posting, there is not a significant difference between those 2 (153.000 successful in X18, and 160.000 successful in X19). The main traffic in version 18 was received especially from contact form.
But if we will take a look on results received from trusted forums we will see HUGE difference (only 1.100 in X18, and 7.000 in X19).
Using counter visits (www.li.ru) we can clearly see that this difference has created a huge break between old and new version efficiency. So new XRumer 19.0 is much more effective in posting on trusted high visited popular resources.
Of course, on many of those site soon will be changed protection but using new crowd-platform we will train soft to bypass it again and again, so this will give posibilityt to post to those resources again and again and get maximum benefits from them. All crowdsource training costs are fully covered by us, and there is no need to pay extra.
Also, a special role was played by the macro #trans, using it – message text was sent in language of target resource. This factor increased the readability of the topic, and reduced possibility of topic removal. In many topics appeared even hot discussions on topics created by XRumer.
We remind you, that macros #trans ... #notrans is used for automatic translation of text added in macros on language of target website. For some time this amcros stopped to work in XRumer because Google Translate closed free usage of API for it’s translation service.
At the moment it works with Yandex Cloud API (Yandex.Translate), but also we plan to add in future Google API. Both services offers free period of usage, moreover, now Yandex Cloud offer 4000 rubles on account for a test period, this is more than enough for usage in XRumer.
The total volume of databases for the last year of updates has exceeded 8 million unique links (unique domains), and we constantly increase and update the resources provided by XRumer.
New databases are considerably cleared up from old recourses especially database of profiles.
New XRumer 19.0 contains databases as for default posting same as for profile registration:
- TrustedLinksFull.txt – 87.000 links
- TrustedLinksChecked.txt – 28.000 links
- Posting.2019.07.txt – 134.000 links
- Posting.2019.07_Big.Mixed.txt – 6.800.000 links
- Posting.2019.07_Big.NoContact.txt – 4.800.000 links
- Profiles.2019.07_All.txt – 146.000 links
- Profiles.2019.07_NotRus.txt – 122.000 links
- Profiles.2019.07_Rus.txt – 29.000 links
New database can be downloaded here: LinksList.2019.07.rar
Settings tab now is more “user friendly” for usage and is much more easy to be understood by beginners or new users of XRumer.
The “Interface” and “Press on "Start from beginning"” setting blocks, which are rarely used, are moved to “Logs reports” – settings.
Now, choose of promotion mode is more simple: "Posting", "Antispam", "Mass-PM" and "Refspam" are now set up on the same panel. They are not divided as previously on different parts of the program interface, which made it difficult to understand, especially for beginners.
New macros #crosslink – an important element that greatly simplifies the life of those who use XRumer for link building.
If before in order to crosslink posts / topics between themselves it was necessary to use “Database Analyzer", "Database Filter", macro #file_links and a number of other routine operations. Now crosslinking is possible during usual posting with a single line in any place of text from Project – #crosslink or #crosslink [parameters]
#crosslink macros will automatically add link to other created topics from the same Project and Database.
We put the tools of database processing into 64-bit mode, which will allow working with big sized databases and reports, and will improve usage of CPU and RAM. For now, this tool contains following functions: “Database analyzer”, “Database filter”, “Move database”.
Described results in comparative testing would be impossible without XEvil 4.0 beta with recognition of ReCaptcha 2.
