    -Does something detect that all of the scraping is coming from one IP address and so it stops you and makes Scrapebox not work for whatever your harvesting?

    -If yes, what exactly stops you, the browser?

    -How do you get proxies to add to Scrapebox and how many do you need?

    If I understand correctly, everything is scraped trough google, and the big G is what detects and stops it.
    proxygo is your man.

    google prevents you from scraping or using their services if you make too many queries with the same ip.
    Akismet bans your ip if you post too much on blogs.

    Ok I see. Makes sense. So now do proxies cost money? Probably depends on the amount of scraping but how many should someone get?

    Also, if you do get banned, how long do they ban you? You say they ban you from using their services meaning if I were to go to google.com it wouldn't even show up? Or you mean services like adwords, apps, etc

    Google will make you enter a captcha phrase before you can use their search again. This prevents scrapebox from scraping websites and blogs.
    When akismet bans you, they will ban your domain and ip. They ban the domain name that you put on the comment forever.


    Go to the member download and proxy section of this website. It should provide you with information and software on how to get working public proxies.

    Generally speaking, If you use the same service/website a lot for the same task, then you need a proxy; if you use each service/website only one time for the same task then you don't need a proxy.

    Yeah it depends on how much you are scraping of course, you would probably be fine with 100 shared private proxies from the several guys who sell those. proxy51(20-30$?~month) is one good source. You could also use public proxies from a service like kensais(15$/month) proxy service. Proxygo's port scanned proxies are probably good too, although i havent used them personally. All of these services will get the job done though.

    Just the google search will be banned. The ban lasts a few hours, nothing to worry about. Other google service won't be affected.
