    after long time using only premium lists for GSA SER, I'm trying to build a list by myself using Scrapebox.

    I don't need big numbers like in the past (when I was running 30+ projects), now I'm focused on less quantity and more quality (I'm only running a couple of projects, but more important than in the past).

    I've already read some nice tutorials here in this forum, but something that is missing in all them are the ScrapeBox settings.

    So, in case someone can help me, my questions are:

    1. For SER I'm using now just 20 semidedicated proxies, can they be enough to run SB for building lists? I know that more proxies is always better for everything, but I wonder if I can use SB with just these 20 proxies
    2. If 20 semidedicated proxies are enough, which settings is better to change on SB? (Connections/threads, timeout, etc)

    Thanks for the help!

    Yes you can use Scrapebox with just 20 proxies. You want to use the detailed harvester and set a delay though, assuming your using google. Try a delay of 3-5 to start, but you may need a higher delay then that, Im ball parking it with that guess.

    You want timeouts at an ok number but assuming your connection is decently fast then a 15 second timeout should be good as google is fast and so are private proxies, but you can always try higher. Connections is the key, you have to slow it down enough that google doesn't block you. Testing how much of a delay you need can help you find that sweet spot where you can go as fast as possible but not trip any ip bans.
