    Hello I would like to ask what is the best setting on scrapebox?

    For the slow and fast poster?

    I have freaking bad results, I dont know if its on the settings of the scrapebox.

    I already have 10 private proxies. Is this enough?

    Thanks!

    What kind of lists are you running? AA lists should have a fairly fast and high success rate. Maybe you have a lot of moderated blogs you are commenting on and your success rate would be much lower with those?

    There's gonna be alot of factors which influence the outcome of a SB blast. As mentioned above the type of list is one, i can give you some suggestions on the connections part

    If you're on a home based PC with DSL/cable line then you should probably do 10-30 connections on fast poster. If you have a vps/server with 100/1000m line then a minimum of 50 connections till 400 is good. Also remember to set the timeout in poster to 90seconds and randomize your bloglist to get higher rates.

    I advice anyone to download this tool from google and find out if there are faster DNS settings for you to use, I did it and now it's 60% faster (It is in Milliseconds but this still can make a huge difference) http://code.google.com/p/namebench/

    I have a specific settings questions.

    In the new version of the backlink checker add-on, how do you change the number of connections? By default it is set to 20. The old version had a slider where you could manually adjust this number... but in the new version I don't see how to change it.

    The public shared lists are not very good (total crap). You can scrape a list by yourself (at least for testing). What is the problems? Low speed? Bad success rate? Good success rate but bad results after the link checker. Give us some light. Also, sometimes the proxies sux. You have to be sure about the proxy quality. The best settigs are individual for each VPS, PC and internet connection. You have to make some tests.

    Hey guys, I buy my AA lists and separate them into 10K each. My success rate is about 50-70% at best. My settings are set at the recommended settings and I use 10 private SquidProxies.

    I usually retry the failed list a few times and squeeze about a 100 out of each attempt. My question here is, how much do you retry till you move on to the next list? Do you attempt the failed lists with slow poster?

    Also, how do you clean and filter up the lists to weed out the ones that don't exist or require CAPTCHA etc. Thanks.

    I'm not sure if you omitted or you don't want this module but there is a blog analyzer module in scrapebox that does exactly that. See the open/closed comments, 404 pages and captcha/spam protection

    Ha! How silly of me, I totally forgot about the add-ons! I remember it being quite slow though but I'll give it a go. Thanks! :)

    EDIT: This is strange, I can't open Blog Analyzer at all. I clicked on it and nothing happens.

    I don't use slow poster. Because is...slow.

    For fast poster and 10 private proxies I would say to go with 60 sec timeout and 20-25 connections. Try and share us your results.

    Regarding your problem, 502 errors are proxy related problems.

    Where did you bought your private proxies from ?

    And also, what kind of AA lists are you using ? free or paid ?

    You can just use Scrapebox to check if your proxies are live. Click on manage > test proxies.

    Yeah! Sometimes during the scraping proxies become dead as well! So, before each use - check it!

    I've run the Blog Analyzer and collected a bunch of open comments one but it seems that they only pass the submission test. Lots of them still waiting for moderation. Is there more filtering to do after using the BA?

    Set up the fast poster time out to 90 seconds. Make sure the list is random so not to overload the servers with multiple posts.

    Update your "Slow and Manual Poster Blog Links" settings found in the settings menu. Max it out to 4096 KB. It is not documented but the Fast Poster also uses this setting.

    To randomize the list, load it into harvester, select the blog analyzer add on, load the list from harvester into the analyzer, select shuffle, then save the list back to the harvester. I find this method much more successful over using the ScrapeBox option "Randomize Comment Poster Blogs List".

    Try not to do more than 50 connections at a time unless you have a fast network connection with a fast machine. I use 100 on a dedicated 8 processor (2xquad) machine with a 100MB internet connection. The bots use 10 at a time on the same machine.

    Break the list down to 75K to 100K entries at a time. Google "NotePad++" to cut and paste into multiple lists, this is the text editor I use.

    Export failed entries from the Comment Poster and reload this list of failed entries into the harvester for a second run. You will normally find 25% or more of the entries are successful on a second try. Don't forget to shuffle this second list as well! A third run will result in even more successes, but the count is usually to low to make the time and effort worth while.

    Don't trust the "failed" results in the bottom right column of ScrapeBox. ScrapeBox reports fails with 302 (redirect) errors on posting as well at 500 (server error) errors. There seems to be new plugins on blogs lately that report all posts as 404 (not found) errors even though the post was successful. I find that in most cases, the link is really posted. You can verify this for yourself by exporting the "failed entries" in the comment poster after fast posting and load this failed list back into ScrapeBox and Check Links.
