    Hey guys,

    I'm using Scrapebox with a private proxy to harvest URLs and check their PR.
    I harvest about ~100 URLs and want to perform a PR check, however I got a warning by Scrapebox that if I have too many URLs in my list and do a PR check, Google will ban my IP (private proxy) temporarily. Now the question is, how many PR checks can I do until I receive that ban?
    Appreciate your help, guys!

    only google knows that

    my advice is to never use your private proxies for stuff like PR check's or scraping. just scrape some up and burn them to the ground ... will take longer but your privates will stay safe

    You will be fine with 10 private proxies while PR checking. There is a higher chance of temp ban when you check PR with just one IP(obviously). I did more than 100 urls PR check once and non of the IP's were banned.

    private proxies are fine, the ban is always temporary and you can use them next day again :) the same with your own IP

    What do you mean by "just scrape some up"?

    i am doing PR checking with private proxies and with good random timeouts i am doing fine without any bans. If you don't need the results fast, thats one way to do the job

    That's good to hear. Ever got a ban? If yes, they're only 24 hours long, right?

    go to "manage proxies" and you'll find the option to scrape proxies from known sources and then test them

    use filters to take out the bad ones and the slow pokes

    That's what I did before. However I never had a chance to harvest Wordpress blogs with free public proxies which I scraped using Scrapebox. Always got "0 URLs". That's why I bought a private proxy and now things work fine. :)

    I use Scrapebox on a daily basis, with private (semi-dedicated) proxies. I do PR checking a lot. Just yesterday I checked PR on a 90k URLs list with 30 proxies and finished in a few hrs without even one proxy being burned. 20 proxies is also a good number. If you only have one proxy, you'll get it burned quickly, but you'll still do your 100-long list. You can also use your direct IP till it gets burned, as it's only a temp ban. Or harvest free proxies.

    If I use my direct IP and receive a ban, does that mean I can no longer access google.com with my browser?
