This is still proving quite the nuisance. I have tried a cpl things. I can do a single run of a cpl hundred index checks without proxies. As it's fast it will get done before G slaps me with an IP block for the day. I can usually check again before bed as G has lifted the ban again only to ban me again overnight. I have 8 shared proxies which work good only IF it is quiet time. So if the speed is around 125 ms or so I could get a run done using one proxy and keep swapping for each run. Trouble is they are usually being used either by me I guess using SB (in another instance) as well or other ppl/both. So I can get a G slap before it's finished the run. Publics seem of little use for the job here since I want accurate results on which links are indexed and there are errors all over the place with those. I am thinking the logical thing to be would be to get improved private proxies which stayed at nice low ms all the time. I don't use it THAT much for this- like two or three runs a day so that alone doesn't warrant me spending more money just for that but if it turned out to be the same price as my current ones then of course. Any other ideas?
