I've just harvested 500 proxys and only 2 were good when I tested them
Yeah, it takes time to harvest some good proxies. That's why I recommend buying a software dedicated to proxies e.g. "Proxy goblin" ($31) or you can try "Proxy Multiply" 7 days trial for free which can be found here on BHW.
I can vouch for Proxy Goblin as it saves me a lot of time for every-day jobs.
Of course, you can also use different footprints in SB to find fresh urls for proxies.
I have the same problem ... It used to be good but now it seems that all the public proxies die very fast!
I downloaded the piznProxyProcessor from here and just did a test run, got about 500 good proxies after testing, but when i use them in Scrapebox i can't harvest.
So i decided to do a test on those proxies in scrapebox and i got only 8 good ones out of 500 ....
What is wrong? Got a lot of errors: 301,404,404,ip blocked ...
cricket1: can you give us a hint how to use different footprints in SB to find fresh urls for proxies.
Use this site to harvest free proxies,
For example, use custom footprint: anonymous proxies
And for keywords use different ports such as ":8088"
You can also try using a custom footprint like +":8080? +":3128? +":80?
And different keywords: anonymous proxies
Remember to use Google as your Search engine and tick the "Past 24 hours" option.
Unfortunately, it takes a lot of time to find good sources.
Thanks for this cricket1 this will come in handy I'm gonna try this right now
Same here mate a few weeks ago I could have gotten 20 to 30 proxys with scrpebox harvester by only testing 198, now its really low like 2 in 500 turning out good
Glad I'm not the only one having this problem...I thought it was just me, but I'm getting the same results.
I see lower success rates as well even though i use PG to harvest proxies first before putting into scrapebox. I used to be able to harvest a couple of thousands of elite proxies previously but the numbers has drpped to around 300 to 500 now. Well, i guess it's time to look for new proxy sources.
Please I'm not the only one having this problem
I've just harvested 1000 proxys and only 3 were good
Yeah, the Google harvester doesn't seem to be working fine.
Tried public and private proxies. Can't scrape beyond 3k URLs at a time.
I'm still getting the same results
scrapebox is my absolutely favorite program.
but i wouldn't even mess with the proxy tools on it. Even when just checking your proxies with scrapebox there is a lot of discrepancy.
if you're going to check proxies use Charon.
if you're going to scrape or scan proxies use proxyfire.
Yeah, Its pretty bad. I was just trying to scrape a few proxies. It took forever and got 2. Neither was good. Time to start buying them I guess.
I just reset all settings which can be found under Help in scrapebox and I'm getting a few more proxies
