    Hello,

    I'm trying to find some software that will test my proxies against a certain site to see if that site has banned them or not. I have scrapebox and see it has a custom proxy tester, but i cant find any documentation on it.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    For something so specific you'd probably be best off having a custom bot or macro type setup that can pull your list of proxies from a text file and loop through requests checking for certain HTML attributes or pieces of text on each page load to identify if the proxy is working for that site or not. Of course building in a function to clear cookies and cache is always recommended as if they are using a cookie based security system you could quickly get your proxies auto-ban by their traps that test for such activity.

    The custom checker is really simple to use.

    Tick the "Custom test" box -> insert the URL you want to test against -> in the "String to find in result page" insert a word you'd only find on the page if the proxy isn't banned.

    If we use Google as an example you might use the string "I'm feeling lucky", as this would only appear for proxies that weren't banned.
