    I am trying to figure a workable solution for my needs and budget...

    I am only playing with about 15 websites to do back linking to it...

    How many proxies should I need to run campaigns for 15 websites?


    I know some of you have 100-200 proxies on your GSA, but how many websites do you have?

    100 dollars a month on proxies can break my wallet... not to mention that building too many links too fast can be negative to a website..

    Could I have just 10 dedicated new proxies per month and build a proper amount of links around 15 sites ok?

    How many back links could I do with 10 proxies without getting the proxy banned?

    depends mostly on how many threads you want to run. if you're running 15 campaigns at 100 threads I'd recommend 25-30 semi dedicated proxies at a minimum. I've used 10 private proxies at 100 threads before but success rate was very low and recaptcha also turned into all blobs, making my OCR not work very well.

    Personally I am doing a 1:2 ratio of proxies to threads and having very good results these days. so 10 semi dedicated proxies = 20 threads for me.

    Well... how many threads you can from a laptop? What exactly is the power of threads depending on?

    I have a 6 GB, 64-bit with a 2.30 Hz processor..

    I don't worry too much about the speed of the threads... but I worry about not getting the proxy banned, so that I can still use it next day, and next week... and keep on building links... until I change it the following month...

    Keeping in mind that I have 15 websites to work with, hopefully I won't need to blast thousands of links in a short amount of time either..

    It depends on your strategy.

    I would say start with 20 semi dedicated proxies and build up slowly.

    The more threads you run, the more simultaneous connections you have performing different tasks. One thread might be downloading a site, the other might be posting to a site, others might be scraping, etc. So more threads usually means more bandwidth + CPU.

    If you're running on a home machine, usually you aren't going to be running an insanely high thread count. Probably max 50-100 threads or less. Having a high thread count on your home machine will probably make it hard to surf the internet while the software is running since it will be using more bandwidth. Best thing to do if you're running it on your home machine is to start low (25 threads) then work your way up to see what works best for your setup. Keep in mind some home routers can't handle high thread count.

    Usually, I recommend starting with at least 10-15 private/shared proxies as a bare minimum, but of course anything higher then that will be better. It really comes down to if you're letting SER do the scraping for you or if you're buying verified lists. If you're letting SER do all the scraping, Google passed proxies are going to be important. If you're using purchased verified lists it won't be as important to have Google passed proxies because they won't be needed for scraping, only for posting. You would still want them to be fast/anonymous though.
