    I bought 10 private proxies that I plan to use with Scrapebox. However, I have some other software such as Wicked Article Creator and a few others. I was just wondering if it's ok to use the same proxies for all these programs?

    Hi,

    WAC scrapes google for article urls and then scrapes articles from them. Any software which scrapes google will make a call to google through these proxies and will get them banned or blocked quickly. Why not use free proxies with scrapebox? If you want to scrape then free ones are the best.

    Regards,

    I tried using free proxies but it was just too slow. Using private proxies with Scrapebox made a huge difference and I've never had any problems getting blocked.

    It depends on how many requests per second per proxy you're sending with these programs. If you're using these programs heavily for domain scraping.

    Another factor is how much bandwidth your proxy provider allows. Some don't allow or limit proxies that are used with XRumer, Scrapebox, SENuke, etc.

    10 private proxies should be fine, but you might want to refresh your IPs at least once every couple of months.
