Does Scrapebox really use as much bandwidth as it says it does?

    A really simple question...I don't have a VPS and don't want to hit my bandwidth limit from my IPS, which right now is 250 GB.

    Just a simple Link Check on 2500 blogs tooks over 150MB of Bandwidth. I am Harvesting and commenting as well so I am worried about my bandwidth limit...

    The figure may not be bang on 100% accurate but basically, yes it does.

    Kind of defeats the object if it is using up more or less bandwidth than it claims to be using, otherwise you wouldn't know where you stood if/when using it heavily.

    Yeah sorry my question was kind of mis-worded...

    I was basically just wondering if the bandwidth that Scrapebox uses directly correlates to the bandwidth meter of your ISP.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Right now I am trying to get a more solid income stream coming in before I invest in anymore recurring bills. I am already paying about $30 per month ($10 for hosting via hostgator, and $20 for private proxies).

    That $20 for private proxies looks bad to me. There 's no need for private proxies in any major spam tool. I.e. for scrapebox, you can simply google for sites to add to the proxy list and then again, you can run the list a few times (export failed->import->spam). For Senuke, i never use a proxy, can 't see any benefit. For xrumer, again no proxy necessary for profile spamming (you will get your ip blacklisted on some forums, but then again, so what?)

    I pay $30/mo i think for 10 private proxies and it's one of the most justifiable expenses I have imo. Private proxies > public oversaturated proxies slow proxies any day.

    Idk, call me crazy, but the convenience alone is worth $30/mo.

    Well, i am running scrapebox behind 10 proxies.
    Just checking for 'posted links' alone has already costed me 500mb.
    Its definitely a killer.

    My question is, even if I am behind proxies, I assume those 500MB bandwidth are used on BOTH my ISP and proxies provider?

    ISP (500 MB) -> Proxies (500 MB) -> SB

    Look at it as if proxies were a bridge in the middle, the load of work will also be put in picking the info and giving it back to you.

    I use a Bandwidth Meter and Scrapebox destroys my bandwidth. VPS is necessary if your ISP has limits.
