    first edit and add these settings it makes s/box
    proxie tester work better

    settings > adjust max connection > proxy harvester 20
    settings > adjust timeout settings > proxy harvester time out 45
    settings > adjust multi thread harvester > 3
    options > use new proxy harvester > do not check mark it.

    a simple option allowing you to scrape a few urls to scrapebox
    is to add a custom foot print like say the words
    anonymous proxies

    for the keywords use this

    ":8088"
    ":8080"
    ":80"

    then b4 u hit scrape only check Google . hit time tab
    select last 24hrs

    make sure u have at least 10 proxies already working to
    do the scrape. then scrape the urls. when your done
    save the url list to a text file. how to scrape the urls
    you just found ?

    open your scrapebox folder - open the configuration folder
    if u cant see it - enable view all files and folders in windows.
    in the config folder paste the urls you just saved into the
    text file called > userproxysources < then save.

    now close scrapebox and re open. hit manage proxies
    then hit harvest proxies. un check the first 7/8 sources
    there the ones that came free. leech the new proxies
    from the new url list then test.

    these links are only good for 24hrs - hence why u set google
    to only look for links in the last 24hrs. to add more anothe time
    go back to the text file in config, delete the links u added
    add more.. rinse and repeat .. it might get you 1-200 but
    its the best free option there is.

    thanks for the info, I'm just starting out with scrapebox as well. Got a question to, instead of using proxies can you just change your ip address? Thanks.

    Def use proxys or save on the hassel and get your self a VPN it's super easy to use and the best part is you can configure it to switch proxys for you after x amount of times.

    I'm new to the forum also... I wanted to mention that I was using Scrapebox's proxy harvester and the results were not that great at all. I will have to look but I found a post on here and got the $27 per month 30 private proxies and by far it's the fastest most reliable solution I have found. My time is valuable so wasting it on slow, soon to die proxies that everyone else is using just slows me down and time is money! :) buy them is my advice.
