    I have a question. We all know that if you search using advanced operators in google, after a few searches you get banned for that search footprint. Obviously if you use proxies in different C-classes you don't get banned. But, what about using proxies in the same subnet/C-class? How is this case treated by Google? Do they figure it out and ban you as usual (for a period of time) or it is like you'd be using proxies in differet C-classes.

    Please reply only if you have factual data (e.g. you tested), not just have a hunch or opinion.

    Thanks

    I have been harvesting intensely for a long time, and it really makes no difference if they are in the same C class. What you really need to be looking for, is ways of diversifying your footprint so that you don't NEED to use special operators at all. In 95% of cases, you WILL be able to find a footprint that is just as good as the inurl: etc., with a little bit of inventiveness. You can't sustain any kind of decent harvest with special operators, even if you have 10,000 working proxies across varied C classes, you will get banned quick. Try to change your approach.

    I would have to agree with jb2008. In my experience, it doesn't matter if your proxies are in the same C class. The nature of your queries is really what gets you flagged. I understand that using special operators may be necessary for your purposes. Your best bet is to test the proxies with a typical query that you would use before bringing it to your script (IMO).

    I use public proxies with SB for g scraping using 4 lines or footprint and keywords and I never get any proxies blacklisted, so maybe you need to increase the timeout? Mine is set at 90. I've tried using private proxies and they were gone in no time...
