So I fired up ScrapeBox for the first time in a while today. I have about 15 private proxies and 400 premium shared proxies which end up as about 50 proxies altogether. I've given up completely on scraping Google as it basically seems to be a waste of time. If it doesn't take forever, my IP is banned quickly or I get a few thousand URLs. I'm searching for a specific forum footprint and a few hundred different keywords. My settings are pretty basic, 'use proxies,' '10 connections,' Yahoo! only.. It doesn't seem to matter how many connections I use either. My footprint is simply "powered by vbulletin" and then a generic keyword. I simply scraped keywords related to "home, garden, computers, pets, jewelry and cars." Is there some new limitations? I used to scrape 30-50,000 URLs no problem. Do I need more proxies? WTH?
