    it is too much, have you used the multi-threaded harvester??

    or maybe the proxies were very slow

    Depends on internet bandwidth, proxy speed and your PC or servers CPU speed and RAM.

    Mind you with public proxies I'm surprised the task even finished. In 88 minutes chances are by the time you finish it about 90% of them will be dead.
    It will have spent most of the time squeezing results through just a handful of proxies.

    Cheap - sure - but public proxies are very slow and unreliable. So 88,000 results in that time frame seems a fare return for next to zero financial outlay.
    I do between 5000 and 25,000 keywords and it can take between 24 and 72 hours through 80 private proxies but only 8 running threads (but that's 25,000 keywords - not 190)

    How many connections are you using ?
    I recommend you to invest in minimum 10 private proxies and use about 3-4 connections with them. You will see some nice results. ;)

    It's too slow buddy!! Increase your connections to 10-15. But if you're running on a slow connection then you can't help it. It'll take some time. I'm usually able to harvest 20-30k links in 1-2 minutes with 200 odd public proxies. I only use google passed fast public proxies.

    Thanks

    Thank You alaltaierii, too many posts on not using private proxies
    for harvesting. It's time to break this myth, this is so much more
    efficient.
