    10 Proxies are fine for the general user.

    Use public scraped proxies for harvesting urls, pagerank checks and such
    Then use your private proxies for posting comments and checking backlinks etc.


    If you use your private proxies to harvest urls from google, then those proxies will get banned pretty quick

    Private proxies are absolutely NOT a must for scrapebox.

    Anyone with other assumptions and claims is probably somehow financially attached to private proxies.
    I run scrapebox daily with all its features and I use public proxies. NO PROBLEM AT ALL.

    None. Harvest public ones and run them through the test 3 or 4 times. You'll have all you need for a single run. Retest after each run.

    Ofcourse public proxies works to and you save some money.

    I make my money from scrapebox, so time is important for me, the time you use on finding and testing proxies, i would already have made my first 5000 comments :)

    All depends on what you do with it. :)

    The advantage to using private proxies is because you will have a higher success rate for blogs if you think about it you are not the only one running these proxies to spam your backlinks. There are also hundreds of other Scrapebox users using these same proxies to harvest & post backlinks which means that the proxies will get caught by wordpress/various comment spam filters. If you are using Scrapebox proxies & seeing results you will see 10x more results with private proxies.

    I agree 100% with what you wrote, but considering the cost, the (almost no) risk of what you mentioned and the fact that public proxies work with 100% no problems; there is absolutely no reason to purchase private proxies. Cost/risk is not worth it. Simple math. If you use scrapebox to spam then you will never improve your serps anyways, might as-well save some $ on proxies.

    Serious proxy leasers simply do not allow scrapebox. For good obvious reasons. Private proxies get blocked very quickly so it ain't that efficient for scraping / posting anyway (Unless you really pay for many). Scrapebox is the best tool for its price - No doubt, but it is not a magic bullet worth investing all your resources on. (Proxies, etc.).

    I have posted many many many comments for quite a few campaigns using scrapebox, and this is what I experience.

    95% of the things I do with scrapebox, I do using harvested public proxies. This includes PR analysis, scraping, link checking, index checking, blog analysis, and A LOT of posting.

    It is important you keep refreshing your proxy list, because there are 100's of other scrapebox users using the same proxies at the same time.

    I am am using a not so great list, and I just want to blast out say 10000 comments, I will use a public proxy and just post until I get 10k success.

    If I am using my "premium" sources, posting autoapprove d0foll0w comments to high PR blogs, I use some "private" proxies. They are not exclusively private, but are shared with a limited number of users. It costs like $15 a month for access to 10.

    When it comes down to it. "private" proxies ARE worth it, but they are NOT necessary.

    For someone starting out, I would say a VPS is a better way to invest some money each month than private proxies, but if you want to make sure you get an excellent stick rate on high quality posts, use your privates.

    If you are making your living at this (or wanting to), investing $10 or $20 for some private proxies is worth it. The performance difference is huge and the posting success rate is much better as well. The amount of time I save in one scrapebox run pays for 10 proxies for a month...

    As you say Jesperj, harvest, test url with addon with free proxy and blast with private proxy seems to be a good idea ...

    I use:

    hxxp://elite-proxies.blogspot.c0m/

    I test them 3-4 consecutive times and get about 50-60% comments submitted. Retest after every action, they seem to burn out quickly...
