    Newb here. I have seen some videos with programs running and there are multiple proxies in the boxes. The people doing the videos indicate that they are free. So my question is, if I go with a private proxy, do I just need one or more than that?

    I just bought SEO Power Suite and I'm thinking that the 4 programs in it probably allow for proxies. Just kind of starting out now.

    It really depends on how you will be using Scapebox and the tools.

    For example, I use public proxies for most stuff just fine and then there are times that I mix in privates based on what I'm doing.

    I'd recommend 10 private proxies if you are gonna buy private proxies, but again, how do you plan to use them?

    # of private proxies depend on the volume of tasks you are going to do. Since you mentioned that you are just starting off, you could go with a mix of shared+public proxies.

    Once you get the hang of things and know the tools in and out, and the share of tasks increase as well, then it would be time to go for private proxies.

    There are lots of threads out here that give away daily lists, you could get started with that along with a few shared proxies and scale up accordingly.

    There's not really a set number that you need, but the more you have the better the experience will be.

    I use 10 proxies from YourPrivateProxy.com and I'll take whatever is available from that days Proxy List from HideMyAss.com. I usually end with with a few hundred decent ones.

    It's not as good as having, say, 100 private proxies, but it's enough to get by on and get a decent amount of posts through.

    With Scrapebox, I would recommend using 10 per 50 connections. Remember that you are using one per connection though, so 10 would be at minimum...20 per 100, 30 per 40 per 200 connections...etc.

    Remember though, that if you are going to use private proxies, use then for posting ONLY...and use public proxies for searches and other tasks...otherwise you will just per right though your privates.

    Huh? Use 10 per 50 connections and that means you are using 1 per connection? Wouldn't that be 1 per 5 connections?


    I'm new to proxies but I've heard of people getting viruses or people getting information from their computer by using free proxies. I would just spend the money for private ones that no one else is able to use.

    Really depends...for scraping,harvesting etc you will be fine with public proxies.
    But for posting use privates that will increase you success rate.
    BTW for SEO powersuit you don`t really need proxies.
