    I bought 4 private proxies off 5er SB last night. It said they change the ips on them regularly but it appears not regularly enough cos I seem to have got them all banned/404'd already.

    So what is the deal? Does this usually happen with privates or are there ways to avoid it? I.e. using more proxies/something else?

    If I am blasting all through the day/night then even if you have say 20 then you will still get banned will you not from the sheer number of traffic you are pushing through them?

    Prob best to use open proxies for scraping unless you have a boat load of privates, just use privates for posting and they shouldn't get banned so easily

    Hmm, maybe they are just banned by the checker then cos that is what was denying me when I was trying- the link checker and the indexer.

    Yes, they will get banned from Google if you're running Google SERP scrapes night and day.

    Think about it, if you're running even as low as 4 connections each proxy can be hitting google a dozen times an hour (or more) so it will only take a matter of minutes before they get banned.

    To do what you're doing you really need many more proxies, I'd suggest over 50 at least.

    Just use the public proxies like others say. Set it up for a huge list and forget it for a day. Come back and load up some more proxies and keep blasting. Never use your paid/private proxies for major SB harvesting/backlink checking, you'll get them banned and your money wasted. :)

    I concur, public proxies are the way to go when scraping search engines. They have so many people running bots on them that they have counter-measures in place to ban ips that send too many requests in a short amount of time.

    You can find public proxies easily by looking up 'proxy lists' then scraping those pages with scrapebox proxy harvester. Pretty nifty and that's what it's for, so use it! :)

    Why is it that the proxies are more likely to get banned when checking links/indexing than they are for posting?

    google smells the proxies are automating some tasks which is unusual and hence why blocking..

    yes but why does it not 'smell' it as well for posting?

    In fact they do because g would ban me temporarily when I would blast without proxies I'd try and search in G and get a message I am banned till I stop the suspicious activity of having too many requests.

    for posting???

    you are not going to posting in google right,
    when you are posting in wordpress, blog engine blogs, the spam protection will flag ur comment if too many comments in a short amount of time ex. akismet
