What can happen if someone doesn't use proxies while using Scrapebox?
Google will only let you run very few searches before they block you out and your IP will also quickly end up in black lists preventing you from posting anything on sites that query these black lists.
Edit: mego818 beat me to it, it seems
This is like asking what the dangers of not wearing a condom are... being asked on a forum of guys who trade hookers. Use a proxie. Always. ALWAYS.
Most probably you'll end up having your IP in the blacklists of google, aksimet and other IP trackers.
I don't care about it much as I have a dynamic IP which can be changed in 3 secs. No need to wait for slow proxies.
So you'll be manually switching IPs every 3 seconds? Because scrapebox scrapes really fast.
For harvesting you use public proxies, and for posting private ones. You don't need any proxies while posting since google doesn't see the IP address they're being posted from, but you need them to prevent your original IP address from being blacklisted.
As for harvesting, unless you have over 100 private proxies, don't harvest with them, but throw in a few hundred public ones and use those for scraping.
Oh oh, I've used Scrapebox about 10 times and I haven't used proxies at all. Where can I purchase proxies?
I purchased private proxies on BHW from unr3al, he has a sales thread in Proxies For Sale section.
Public proxies, you scrape them or buy a service which provides frequently updated lists of public proxies(They die quick).
I'm buying 4 fast proxies from Fiverr. What do you think?
Also, are proxies just I.P. addresses?
EDIT: I'm actually using changemyip(dot)com now. Which one would you recommend? Also, should I get VPNs or dedicated proxies? THANKS.
Hmm, great answers here.
My question is:
What are the dangers of using public proxies?
So you're saying it's better to buy private proxies?
The people who sell 4 proxies for $5 on fiverr are buyproxies.org, get it directly from them.
Yes, they are. I recommend you read a lot more. Read http://scrapeboxfaq.com/ and watch the youtube videos.
No "dangers" of using public proxies. The only "danger" can be a lower success rate while posting.
Public for scraping google. Private for posting and everything else.
There is nothing wrong/dangers of using public proxies. However, the thing is that these kind of proxies usually "die" very quickly (become blacklisted, banned from big G, etc..), and this affects negatively your success rate when posting.
Public proxies are pretty useless. They are blacklisted too quickly.
Open, Public Proxies owners can, and sometimes do, perform man in the middle roles. ie. they can hijack accounts created en masse by SEO software, take control of them and change the links.
This is not unheard of, just not that common. That's one of the reasons why you use public proxies for scrapping, and private ones to do the account creation/posting bit.
Ouch, you ISP could also get complaints about your activities. check out the scrapebox website for their newly recommended private proxy provider. I am currently using
those and they are the best I have seen.
