    I'm a total noob so my apologies if this is in the wrong section or a dumb question.

    I bought scrapebox a couple of days back and I'm getting myself acquainted with it.

    The subject of proxies was the first thing that comes up.

    My question is whether I can still scrape with public proxies or do I have to get private proxies and the difference between the two. And does it have to be socks5 if its private?

    Also if private is the only option to properly scrape, any references to some good deals would be appreciated.

    Does not HAVE to be socks5 if it's private. But it's better IMO. I would use public proxies for scrapebox to scrape, and private proxies for posting content and links.

    Public proxies are just too damn slow and unreliable.

    public proxies dies out in just a few hours or days, whilst if you have those that are used privately and paid, they don't get abused that much so you will have a faster connection using them.

    you can use free public ones for scraping, but when you post, you need to use the paid or private ones.

    Public proxies are like street hookers. They get abused & exploited by everyone. You can spit on their face. Some will let you pee on them. If they get mad and run away... there's always another right down the corner.

    Semi-private proxies are like backpages escorts. You can't pay them with soap crumbs. They need real money. Tend to be cleaner & more reliable. Can get the job done in most cases.

    Fully private proxies are like getting married.

    Public are slow, unreliable, used and beat up to death. private proxies are fast, reliable, and virgins to the marketing game ready to get broken in

    The public proxies will just slow you down, private proxies are faster than public. with public proxies you have to make sure that you have many proxies in your list anyway all the time
