    Just making a plan to start using SB and was hoping you experts could help me with a few noob questions i have before i buy ...

    1) i want to use SB for some small blasts, im talking a few thousand not 10's of thousands .... will i be able to run it from a home pc?

    2) does SB allow me to find the blogs i want to comment on? or do i need another tool to find them? i mean does SB allow me to paste a list of kw's and then go off and get me blog posts to comment on related to my kw's?

    3) if i run it from a home pc on small blasts will i need to use proxies? if yes, best/cheapest place to buy them? im in the uk.

    4) if i purchased SB on a VPS (some guy on BHW offers this with TBS and senuke x) would i still need to use proxies? or does the VPS sort that?

    any other tips? basicly i just want to use SB to blast a few thousand posts maybe once a month max? any suggestions the best and most cost effective way of doing this?

    4 - You'd still have to harvest your own proxies.

    I think it would be fine on your own PC but the proof is in the pudding I guess.

    What internet connection do you have?

    I own scrapebox and use it on hellomotows vps.I have never really had issues with either.It can get bandwidth hungry if you use it properly e.g checking pr,checking backlinks to build auto approve lists etc.Depends on your isp,I'm with BE no worries with them to date.

    I use hellomotows vps too, but reserve that really fro Senuke and run Scrapebox from my own PC.

    I'm too far from the exchange with Be and only got about 350kbs but never really had a porblem, I'm now with Virgin on 50MB and it's the mutz nutz :D

    I wouldn't buy scrapebox to comment on blogs, it gets less useful in this area every day. It does have other good tools in it though.

    Just download the free VMWare player:
    Code:
    http://www.vmware.com/products/player/overview.html
    It lets you install an OS from a disk/DVD or you can mount an ISO that's on your drive.


    Use the Converter to make an image of your current system.
    Code:
    http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/datacenter_downloads/vmware_vcenter_converter_standalone/4_0
    VMWare is a computer inside your computer.
    It allows you to run a copy of your Operation System (i.e. Windows) isolated from the OS you are using right now to browse BHW.
    Or if you're using Windows XP you can install Windows 7 inside the Virtual Machine and use both simultaneously.

    When running Scrapebox you will hit infected blogs. Some of the viruses or trojans on those blogs are pretty nasty and can infect your PC.
    When running SB inside VMWare you reduce this risk significantly. What gets infected is the copy of your Windows (or MAC, or whatever you're using ) and not the machine you're using for your daily surfing.

    Best practice is to make a copy of the VMWare files after you installed your OS, an AntiVirus and Scrapebox and put them somewhere on your drive.
    When your work-copy of the Virtual Machine becomes infected you just delete the virtual machine.
    Copy your fresh virtual machine to your work directory and continue blasting.

    Excellent - thanks again Blackhit.
    One last question ...

    Can you stop and start SB blasts? i mean if i have multiple blasts can i run some of blast 1 then stop it and run some of blast 2 and then switch back to blast 1 the following day?
    so that i dont get to many links to quickly.

    You will still want proxies. I've found I get better results with private proxies over the scraped public proxies, and they aren't too expensive either

    You can't stop a blast and continue from the last position the next day.

    SB allows you to save a list of harvested URLS in multiple files. Just enter the number of URLS you want in one file and SB creates them.
    If you only want to blast 1000 comments for one site a day, you create files with 1000 URLS and use one of them a day for that site.

    SB also let you save all info for a campaign in a project file.
    If you want to continue with a different site just load the project file for that site.
