    Just a question I want answered before I spend more money on attempting to make money.

    With applications like ScrapeBox where I'm harvesting URL's and posting comments I hear private proxies are something amazing for this kind of job, but wouldn't those proxies just get blacklisted as easy as public proxies therefore all the private proxies I just bought would be blacklisted and I'd need to buy more?

    Also I read if I got anonymous proxies I'd be able to increase article views on sites like squidoo and ezine by pinging, is that true?

    Thanks,

    The approval rate and speed with private proxies on scrapebox is amazing compared to using scraped/shared lists.

    It is no longer possible to increase views on ezine (as far as I am aware), I have tried all the standard methods (and more) and ezine views do not go up.

    Cheers Larry, how long do your private proxies last for?

    Well I purchased 8 shared proxies from a guy at fiverr and they're great. I've done around 250k comments with them, none blocked so far. They'll probably last you a while. You should only comment with them and harvest with some public proxies. I haven't tried privates, since these are working fine with it at the moment. Though I am planning to try just so I can compare.

    So harvesting on public proxies is not so bad? The big difference between private and public proxies is only in posting comments??

    Don't harvest with them because say you have 10 private proxies and you harvest on 1000 keywords with scrapebox.

    It will do 100 serp requests to Google in a shoer period of time and the proxy will get bloxxed by a captcha request (this will clear after an hour or so).

    So therefore just use a public list for it (even though it's much slower). Ideally if you have +100 private proxies then that is the best solution but more expensive obviously.
