i was getting quite dis-heartened recently it seemed public proxies passing the google check were falling and falling again i remember the times when you could get 1k+ scraped public proxies passed google check - then everyone bought s/box and supply out stripped demand, just not enough public scrapable proxies to go round the amount of users who search them. even up until 2 days ago from every 10-20k scrape 4k would be live via a bleech test for l1/l2/l3 but about 300 were only passing google. depressing. so tonight from 12 midnight till now 4am i pulled out my port scanners again something i only do when proxies are really down, started probing a few ip blocks from searching through thousands of proxies to build them, at least im happy to say that although public scrapes are down to 300 or so on google pass, port scanned proxies passing google check are still there to be found if you have the patients. holy crap.
