    So, I posted this on the GSA forum but they usually don't ever respond and I know this forum is a lot more visited. Anyway, I need help BIG time. I keep getting my proxies banned and I don't know what to do anymore.
    Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? I have 10 private proxies from buyproxies. And at first in my project I had 5 search engines selected and that didn't work, so I went and editted it and selected all english and still... banned.

    I thank you for your help.

    PR checking is probably getting your proxies banned, you may want to try disabling that option or Lower your threads.

    Are they dedicated proxies or shared?

    They are private dedicated proxies.
    @david Do you think it's the proxies and not my settings?

    I've got proxies with buyproxy as well and while they do get burned once in a while I just write support and they replace them - no questions asked (occasionally get 2 or 3 bonus proxies too).

    It surely is because of the pr checking which Future mentioned. Either get more proxies or stop checking pr.

    Also, why are you using and scraping public proxies when you are not using them?

    And the gsa forum always seems very helpful to me. You usually will not get an answer within minutes, but Sven will very often respond to you if other people havn't. Personally I think the amount of support he provides along with development is amazing.

    Ok, I've disabled PR checking, but this is out of curiosity and because I want to know just to add up to my knowledge but why would checking for PR be a reason to get banned?, do all my other settings seem good to you?

    @OP

    I've been using Proxy Blaze dedicated proxies, and had zero problems so far. You can find the guy who sells them in BST part of the forum, great guy too, and support is awesome, plus price is low for the quality you get. I'm using them for PR checking, Submissions and Search engine part.

    You should look into scraping outside of SER using something like scrapebox or gscraper and importing those URLs into SER.

    Letting SER scrape is just a silly waste of time. Get some public proxies or something like proxyrack and use SB.

    Just my 2c.

    Its about PR and search. Use public proxies for PR and Search engines and private for posting only.

    As HelloInsomnia said above, have a check if your proxies are dedicated or shared. Just because you might not be the one that is banning the proxies.

    PR checking will query google for every link in finding out the PR of it. If this is made at a high speed then spam filter is on your proxies, quick. Either you have dozens of proxies, or you don't set any PR filters for your projects.

    I don't think it's PR checking. I just double checked to be sure - and banned a proxy via PR checking and then used it to scrape Google. I think that the PR checking is part of the Google API queries and so it's on a different system and doesn't count towards banning proxies from search. This is just my theory so don't quote me on this but if you try it yourself you should see that just because a proxy is banned from PR checking doesn't mean it's banned from search.

    After more testing a proxy banned from search was able to check PR so the two are not tied together.

    Thanks a lot for testing this and sharing your results, I really didn't know that. But I'm pretty sure that ser will still label a proxy as "down" when it has been banned for pr checking and it fails a pr check. I'm not sure whether the OP just means that his proxies are getting banned, as in disabled in ser or if they're banned from search engines. It would certainly help narrow his problem down with more information.

    I agree, in his screenshot he has "Disable banned proxies" checked. I Believe SER disables proxies if the are banned from checking PR although I am not 100% sure.

    i complained about this many times on their thread and most answers was about my "wrong" setting or about my bad proxies,so i stopped posting anymore about this problem and i am using GSA not so often now.

    Thank you all for responding to my thread, y'all are so nice and I love this forum.
    After unchecking the PR setting and lowering my threads on the proxies settings to around 7 (which I honestly think it's too low?) I am now not getting anything banned but I've only had 23 verified links for the past 24 hrs. Anyway, thank you so much for helping me!

    Wait, where are you lowering your threads? In the proxy tester or in the general ser options? Also, the point of unchecking pr checking is that you don't need to lower your threads at all. Btw. you also remembered to stop filtering for pr in your projects right? Else that'd obviously explain why you only have gotten 23 verified urls.
