    I've tried some various Google scraping proxies from BHW and for whatever reason they all keep getting banned near-instantly.

    So I'm thinking about subscribing to Gscraper proxy service again. Does anyone still use it? Does it still work properly?

    Few years ago I used it and it was amazing, but quit scraping for a while and it was too expensive to keep paying while I didn't scrape for months.

    No one uses this service? That's sorta surprising.

    gscraper bit the dust on bhw couple of years ago.
    hawke did use to sell/promote gscraper on bhw, then he got greedy.

    he abandoned his sales thread for 2 years with no support to bhw members.
    on the gscraper website , there support section was closed for live help
    on skype they would block u also for support issues.

    then - they all but blocked the use of using your own public proxy lists to force
    you into there 60$ a month proxy sub . shitty practices .

    and to prove they didnt they care about the customers of bhw.
    I SHIT LISTED THEM. - guess what? they refused to reply , so there
    sales threads where shut - gscraper is no longer allowed on bhw.
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/beware-gsrcaper.782884/

    email them with a support issue they ignore you
    use a random email and ask about buying gscraper they reply in
    24-48hrs - tells u all u need to no.

    This is actually both sad and hilarious, because what you've just written is my EXACT experience with Gscraper.

    2016, I try their indexer service they were promoting... run out of credits, refill $30 worth, and the credits were never added. Emailed support 100 times, no response. Ended up having to file a claim with PayPal for a measly $30.

    In the claim, they still didn't respond to PayPal at all, and eventually I got the $30 back.

    But they fixed the scraping now I'm pretty sure, right? The thing is I need scraping proxies. I just don't want to sign up for $66/month and have them not active the proxies for me or have them not work like they used to (Google cracking down heavily on scraping lately).

    I've also tried other services like ProxyMillion from BHW but sadly, after scraping 1 footprint with only 5 threads and 5 keywords, all of my proxies were banned, which I still don't understand, and I don't think they did either.

    Do you think Gscraper will activate the proxies if I pay? Do you think they'll even still work properly? Can you recommend any scraping proxies that will work with Gscraper? I need enough to where I can scrape a lot without them getting banned.

    between 2013 - late 2015 i use to supply around 1000 working tested proxies
    daily on a lifetime sub 110GBP bout 140 ish $ for a list everyday. av scrape speed
    was 60-100k urls a min. by end of 2015 it was down to either 0-10k but the amount
    of proxies dropped to 1-200, i can tell you they deliberately block proxies or certain
    ip blocks to stop people like me providing a cheap service - to force you into there
    monthly sub of there own proxies, shitty greedy practice .

    they lost all there bhw traffic/sales/sales threads/adverts/ all because they got greedy

    $66/month for there pre tested pre imported public proxies is nothing
    short of a rip off . use another scraper and dont give them a dime
    try scrapebox or gsa scraper url scraper .

    ... I have Scrapebox ... their server proxies get banned after 1 scrape. And I'm not wasting time manually scraping my own proxies. I have cash, I'd rather pay than sit around scraping my own proxies all day.

    It's not just a public proxy import, they have a service that's constantly testing the proxies to ensure they're good.

    There's no way I'm wasting hours per day scraping proxies with GSA proxy scraper just to save $66/month.

    My time is much more valuable (so is yours). I used to use Gscraper proxy derive in 2013-14, and it was fantastic, I'm just wondering if it still works as good now.
