    been here for few months, reading alot and still confused about whole
    SEO techniques.

    For a quick question,
    to run scrapebox, will i need to purchase vps and run it on it?

    or i can just run it on my pc?

    On your pc it is fine but that depend on your use.

    For what do you want to use it ? Harvesting ? Blog commenting ? checking BL ?

    You can do both, but you should have public "elite" proxies to run scrapebox. If you're scraping Google with just one IP address, they will block you from using Google for a few hours because you are hammering them.

    Most likely for all , harvesting, blog commenting and checking BL.

    Would u please explain to me the purpose of using VPS?

    is it because of the static IP?

    would Scrapebox require you to run from the static ip?

    VPS is just a virtual machine on some server... Its like having another computer somewhere far from you that you can control and run programs on.
    It doesn't matter if the vps has a static IP as you should use proxies anyway

    The VPS is really to prevent things from going haywire on your own machine.

    I'm personally too cheap to use one, but I wont be complaining when some scraping turns up some damaging macro or malware that forces me to format my PC.

    And yes, you should use proxies to do your work (minumum 10 private proxies, rotating every month) because google will ban you.

    VPS is actually a virtual machine, just as your PC, but probably with better specifications, and there are multiple reasons why people use it, such as it will run faster and better because the net speed is better, or they are doing stuff on their main PC (ie internet, gaming, etc) so it makes Scrapebox run a lot slower.

    There are VPS for $10-$20 which are quite good, can't remember the URL.

    But tell you what, if you are going to do huge stuff, I mean scraping hundreds of thousands or millions of links, then I'd go with a VPS, but if you are going to get AA lists from here or somewhere else and just post on them, then just use your PC, and if you are going to use it more oftenly, get a VPS.


    And another reason is as Taktical mentioned, but I wont be complaining when some scraping turns up some damaging macro or malware that forces me to format my PC.

    Would you make a small effort to find the url? I haven't been able to find a windows vps for under $25
