    Hi guys,

    got a quick question regarding SB proxys. I got 250+ proxys, how many of them should I use?

    I use 190 proxies (100 private proxies, 90 shared proxies). Not sure if it's enough or more than enough but have no trouble with it at all. Running at 500 max connections.

    So I can just paste them all in? By the way it was like 10 hours it took me to test these 250+ proxies out of 19000.... and when I run a test on these 250 now, most of them are failing. Why?

    Because you are probably using public proxies. These things get burnt pretty quick cause everyone is using them. Best to get private or shared proxies.

    What's the difference between shared and private proxies?

    Private = just you using them.
    Shared = you and a few other people (usually 2-4) can use them.

    as many fast proxies the better, at the moment I only use 500+ fast (according to the proxy checker) public proxies and am able to harvest about 4 million URLs before they die, then I get another 500+ fast public proxies.

    Can you recommend me a way to get free public proxies fast? None of those I scrape work... I try harvesting, but 0 results are returned...

    I'm using as much as I can get. I scraped like 100k+ of proxies from various sources and I let scrapebox scan them during the night, in the morning I run the scan on the good ones again and those which are still ok I consider good enough to use for the day :)

    I just paid the 10 bucks to get 10 shared ones. I couldn't have been bothered with scraping\testing\re-testing continually to get good google capable proxies.

    I use about 10-20 private proxies, which is sufficient to run the software and make the posts.

    I'm in a good mood today (which is rare for me) so I decided to share my big proxy list. Enjoy.
    (it's a .txt file so no virus scan is needed)

    How long do private proxies last and how many of them would I need to scrape URLs and post blog comments?

    Private proxies last as long as you pay for them, here is a video on how to safely scrape with private proxies without getting blocked. Start with at least 10 and go up from there depending on how fast you want to go.

    Depends on what you are trying to do.

    For general stuff I use 500 public proxies, for more targeted things I use private proxies.

    for testing proxies with scrapebox, i first run a 20 second timeout with no google test, then a 35 with google test, and keep max connections around 40-60
    it's how you avoid the whole, proxies are dead by the time you finish testing problem
