I have dynamic IP and I only use it for harvesting and posting comment daily?
You will need it for harvesting. Posting I wouldn't recommend it if you have a good names, emails and comment spin set.
you want proxies in SB for several reasons.
When you scrape keywords, google and the other SEs will ban the IP after too many searches
When you get PRs google will ban you for getting too much info too fast
When you harvest URLs all SEs will ban you for too many searches too fast
When you comment, some sites have a blacklist of IPs to auto ban, you may be on that list.
so if you want to be successful, use proxies.
Thanks! One more question, do you think 3,4 private proxies enough for harvesting daily? Or should I buy "VIP access" in some proxy forum to get their shared proxy list?
depends on how much yer searching.
depends on your settings in SB.
Me, I use 30 proxies.
You need probably a minimum of about 10 private proxies.. more is better.
yeah, I use 10 private proxies for posting, and occasionally harvesting. If you have a good source for public proxies you should be good. It can be difficult to use just the harvested proxies to scrape. However if you are scraping in small batches and can change your ip at will then you might be able to scrape till your banned, then rotate your ip and scrape some more. This is just going to take more intervention from you.
I like to be able to set my scrapebox campaigns up and let them run for 3-8 hours while I am at work and then come home and setup some more for while I sleep. Minimal intervention as I can spend that time doing other things. Thus I use both paid proxies and public proxies from sources outside of scrapebox.
