    Hi guys, do you have any speed problem with scrapebox harvester lately ? Especially those who are using Hostamus VPS service.

    Here's my story, if you can spare some minutes, please help me out.

    Yesterday, I purchased a basic VPS plan from Hostamus with 1Gb bandwith along side with 50 semi-dedicated proxies from buyproxies and hoped that I can scrape lots of links with Scrapebox.

    I put 30 proxies in and set the google connection to 6, so that my proxies won't be banned. Before harvesting, I tested all the proxies, they're all fast and google passed. But the harvest speed is horrible, I only got average 15 - 30 urls/s (which is even worse than what I have at my own computer) and within minutes, scrapebox doesn't harvest anymore. I thought maybe the proxies were banned, but when I re-checked, they're all still fast and google passed.

    So I contact Damien from Hostamus, he said that my proxies were banned, then he put in 100 proxies of him, start harvest again. The speed start off great, about 100 urls/s but again, within minutes, it's dropping and eventually stop harvesting in just 10 minutes. Damien's idea is that Google is banning IP super fast now, and it's nothing to do with his VPS. I don't know what to think now.

    Is it true that Google bans IP super fast now ? If so, is there any way I can use scrapebox ? I'm so confused and disappointed right now, please let me know your idea, guys.
    Thank you very much for reading my thread.

    Are you using a rather suspicious search query, like ["pay day loans" +wordpress] or anything?

    Just a thought :)

    Nope, I'm using just a music niche, nothing suspicious at all as I can see :(.
    seeplusplus, do you have that kind of problem from scrapebox ?
