    I just bought Scrapebox and have been watching tons of great video tutorials on using it...

    but none of them say how many proxies I should use.

    They talk about private proxies, shared proxies, public proxies, etc...

    I'll probably use public proxies for scraping, and private proxies for blog commenting.

    But how many? Is 10 good? Or would I need 100's? Is there a rule of thumb as to how many per thousand blog comments (ex. for every 1,000 comments, you should have 1 private proxy)

    Yes 10 private proxies is enough for blog commenting.

    As above, 10 is definitely suffice. I use just 10 for huge blasts.

    0 proxies for commenting
    20-30 public proxies for scraping

    I would get at least 100 public each day if you want to go that route, or just start with 10 private. If they are making you money you can scale up.

    i have enough public proxies from BHW and 10 from squidproxies but once i got some offer on my SB blast gig, i definitely will prefer 20 to 30 proxies to speed up the blasting.

    i am very new to sb but this is my experience with it on the xsserver vps

    I use around 20 private proxies for commenting, try to make sure they are low latency as it has a massive impact on both speed and success rate.

    It depends on your settings and your computer hardware.

    Most will do with 10 proxies when posting and double when scraping.

    No, there aren't any thumb rule on how many per thousand blog comments, but the number of proxy depends on your choice. If you more proxies then all the blog comments will look like unique comments.

    Thats all...................

    I use 10 private proxies and I haven't had any problems and have a high success rate.
