    I am using footprints that I get from here (BHW) and I am getting very few results. I don't know if this is because the footprints are so good that they only bring back pure gold.

    I tried the two below and only got about 10 results, all from BHW.

    inurl:.edu "Find all posts by""Find all threads started by""Total Posts: 0" "signature"

    inurl:.gov "Find all posts by""Find all threads started by""Total Posts: 0" "signature"
    (not mine, I'm not clever enough to figure this out, credit goes to BHW member)

    I then put 1000 of the most common surnames in America in and got about 9 or so results, all from BHW.

    I am doing something wrong. What should I be doing. I have a Scrapebox Advantage and should know how to merge files and use footprints but I don't. One thing that is different is I am scraping for proxies instead of paying for them now.

    Could the proxies be the problem? My results when using footprints are low for everything.
