    I'm brand new to proxies so I'm not sure how long proxies usually last for if I were to use like Scrapebox with them.

    You get a phone call from the isp of the proxy letting you know that it doesn't work anymore.

    seriously though, they don't last long, unless you find some unlisted ones, or get them from a provider who has regular port scanning setup. example proxygo here.

    Many people run proxy scrapers that just scrape any proxy listed on google, so they get used up rapid quick.

    Scrapebox has a feature to test the proxies, and then you remove the bad ones.

    What about Private or Premium proxies? How long would those last roughly?

    And lets say I have 10 proxies in the list for Scrapebox to actually be used. If one goes bad will it just move on to the next one in the list?
