I tried a trial of paid private proxy service and got one proxy for a test in scrapebox, but it didn't pass google test, when I use it in browser it didn't work either, I asked for another proxy and tried, nothing has changed.
My question is I'm in China now, is that the problem? how can I get proxy that works in China with scrape box?

you need to use a usa vps then load scrapebox to the vps , when you buy proxies you need to add the vps iP to the proxie provider .

So it is not possible to just load proxy in scrapebox and run it on my own computer now, I have to run it on a usa vps?

I haven't heard of it can be this serious before, and for what I want to do is not illegal, only seo stuff, several years ago what I said is possible, for I used scrapebox at that time, so where can I get cheap and reliable vps service, is there recommendation?

Well I can't comment on how China works, as I am in the US. Placing proxies in scrapebox works, but its going to connect to the proxy. so if your ISP is blocking access to the proxy, then its not going to work. I would "assume" you could use a VPN and skip the VPS and be fine functionally, but I don't know how that works with laws in China etc... as I just can't say.

China has the "great firewall" which will block your requests before reaching the proxy.

You need to also have a VPN on your computer or you need to run the scapebox from a VPS outside China

Why would one need a VPS for ScrapeBox ?

Can you not use it without ?

Of course you can. You would just need to use proxies. But, a VPS is the best way to ensure complete anonymity. Say if you were using Scrapebox, and you scraped some stuff from Google. You go on Google Chrome using your profile, while logged in, to check some of the scraped results.

If I were Google, and noticed a lot of scraping coming from a certain IP, I'd use custom software on the inside to rapidly cross-check someone's Chrome profile (and known Chrome IPs) with recent scrapes to see which account is doing all the scraping.

With a VPS, you keep your black hat activity pretty much 100% separated from your normal activity, to prevent anyone from being able to see what is actually going on. It's kind of an activity scrambler of sorts.

Not saying Google has something like that in place, but they'd be pretty stupid not to. And Google didn't get to where they are by being stupid......

Touche`. Nevermind. I need coffee. Too much sleep today! :)

By the way, if it helps, I had an issue with proxies recently on my VPS. Had to change the port from port 80 to port 5555 in the proxy coding. Not sure if this is impacting your proxies or not, but wanted to throw that out there.
