    Hello,

    I recently just purchased scrapebox and the Email Scrape Premium Plugin and I wanted to buy dedicated proxies for it to run seamlessly, but searching through this forum, i found that there are so many types of proxies (residential, reconnect, etc.) that i got so confused what the best proxies would do.

    Please suggest the best type of proxy and the best seller for it. TIA and i appreciate your help!

    If you are just scanning lists of urls then don't even use proxies, so long as its nice mix of domains. If its all 1 domain or only a few then you may need to use proxies. Else just randomize the urls and set connections to like 2 or 3 and you should be good, generally speaking.

    If you are putting in keywords and letting it scrape results from search engines and then scrape the emails, like using the first tab, then you probably want proxies, and you want private proxies. You ideally don't want back connection/rotating/reverse/residential proxies for this application. Just private or shared private (which is what I use in this case) proxies is fine. Just if you do shared, then you just want to tell the provider that you are using it for google scraping (assuming your using google in the email scraper plugin).

    There is more info and recommendations on providers here:
    http://scrapeboxfaq.com/scrapebox-proxies

    Those places above are actually the places I use as well.

    Basically if you want to scrape google or other engines for results in general, back connect/reverse/rotating (all the same thing) can be a great option, if you have a good provider (or they can be a nightmare if its not a good provider). Basically they are best suited for speed and mass results.

    If you want accuracy private/shared proxies are better. Accuracy is what your saying you want, I would think, in this case so thus the private/shared recommendation.

    Residential proxies are a touch different, but could best be compared to rotating/reverse/back connect proxies, as the ips change a lot or on every request generally, you just have less chance of running into google banned ips, they "should" probably be faster and they are generally more expensive.

    Thats the birds eye view anyway. There are always exceptions too, like at that url above there is a recommendation for back connect proxies, along with a video on how to setup. That provider offers standard proxies that change on every request (good for mass, not for accuracy, so good for scraping google, not good for posting or scraping emails etc..) but they offering some proxies that change only once every 15 mins and those are better for accuracy, like posting or email scraping. I say "better" as they are better but still not quite as good, in my experience, as like your own private proxies.

    On the flip side you might have to pay a solid amount to be able to use 80 connections with a back connect provider, but you can buy 8 private proxies and post, which would still give you 80 connections (10 connections per private proxy is standard limitations to avoid overload) but that 8 private proxies would be a fraction of the cost of the back connection.

    For reasons like that I use both and each for its own purpose. But I have a farm of servers and hundreds of private proxies plus back connect etc... so thats overkill in your case.

    The back connect provider listed on the url, may be the most versatile for scraping from google and for posting to like contact forms or links, because they offer change every request proxies and the 15 min ones for the same price, but back to your email scraper plugin, you are doing 2 steps in 1. Scraping google and then scraping for emails, so you want accuracy most here, so I would use shared private or fully private proxies for that, if thats your primary application.

    my 2 cents.

    I knew you would reply! hahaha i am currently just learning about scrapebox and i mainly bought it to scrape emails as I need leads and close clients for my agency. I am also currently watching your videos.

    I was kinda of getting confused but then at the very end you recommended private proxies so I guess that's what I am going to purchase. I want to ask, i am trying to get 1k leads a day, how many private proxies should I buy?

    Also, do you kinda have a telegram or a skype so we can chat about this, if not it's fine. :)

    :) Yes private is the way to go for the email scraper plugin. like start with 10, and try it, if its great go for it, if not go up, its kind of trial and error.

    I don't use skype or telegram or whatsapp or anything like that, because I spend too much time talking and not enough time working, lol. Im long winded, so it gets out of hand, so I just quit using them.
