    Does anyone use Proxy Goblin? It's getting on my nerves. I click stop fairly quickly to stop scraping, and by that time it has already found hundreds of thousands of proxies. I only want about 100 elite proxies. I don't need millions of proxies. Filtering takes too long when there are so many proxies to filter. Does anyone know how to do small tasks in Proxy Goblin?

    problem with any url scraping tool is this
    you can scrape 20/50/100k but there will never
    be more than 5k working . its been that way
    for yrs so anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong
    people spend to long testing to big a list for the outcome

    but you get what you pay for

    I only want a small amount of elite proxies every day for two or so hours of work. What do you recommend?

    im not saying the tool is bad - it serves a purpose for those
    who dont have alot . the problem lies in the amount of proxies
    pulled from the tool ... this either requires new updated links
    everyday to pull just say 5/10k tops there by lowering the test
    time to get to the proxies faster ..
    as for what to do about it, either change your tool or change
    the way you get your proxies

    5 month ago Around,I used this Tool
    i dont liked it that time
    its frustrating!!,Usually i Got 1 elite proxy in thousands of Proxies
    Better to Scan Manually
    Or Use proxies From Public Daily Updated Sites but those will Die Faster

    I've been using PG for over a year and I haven't had any issues. I also run it on a VPS and I have it set up scrape every 2 or 3 hours, but I also set it so that if there are 200 working proxies, it doesn't re-scrape new ones. For trying to scrape elite proxies, go into settings and choose "enable autokill" and choose how many you want. Once it finds enough live proxies, it should stop testing. You can also up the amount of threads your using to speed up the process depending on the speed of your computer and the amount of memory.

    Thank you! I looked at the settings over and over and could not figure out if it was possible.

    they were having issues with the host that the server validates the licence and proxy judges on, they are working hard to fix it, proxy goblin is THE BEST Proxy scraping software out and has been Top one of 2012 and still the top one as of 1/5/2013 . i have tried all the popular and not so popular proxy programs and nothing even comes NEAR the amount of cusomizations and ability to Scrape high quality Elite Proxies like proxy goblin, best purchase i made over a year ago ive used it everyday since, i like it way better then built in proxy finding tools built into GSA SER,nohandsseo, senuke, eliteproxyswitcher, proxyfire.... proxy Goblin owns ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! id pay for an update to the software if they needed more funds, i dont know why people would even waste money on any other proxy software trust me from someone whos had to manually find proxies and pay for proxies monthly which get banned by google super fast and are a pain in the butt to get the paid proxy hosts to change the ip addresses of the proxies... Not to mention its only $31 on warrior forum with the Discount.... this program is worth $100 - $300 considering the amount of money it has saved me on buying proxies and the amount of my own personal time it has saved finding proxies online and scanning if they work and they are usually swamped and overloaded and banned within minutes from all the free proxy list websites.. you set proxy goblin to refresh like 200 proxies every 15 minutes at Elite and set it to auto and save to text file point your programs to the text file that it auto updates and its all hands free from there!!!! takes 5 minutes to set up :)

    $31 here
    http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior...discount-special-discount-bonus-warriors.html

    I would recommend just paying the $67 to help support new development of the software and new updates, and you also have to consider they have to pay monthly fees to host the Proxy judges so they have monthly costs to maintain this program so trust me its worth supporting them and buying it through this link: http://proxygb.com/

    Take care and Proxy Goblin for life!! and no i do not work for them, most programs i use and hate, but this one has won me over for sure. :) trust me

    actually the best proxy tool out there is proxyfire
    1 - its free -
    2 you can port scan fresh open proxies that users with a tool
    like proxygoblin cant get, proxygoblin is only harvesting re posted
    lists of proxies via url download which also means anyone with a url
    harvesting tool can harvest the same proxies with a free url scraper
    that proxygoblin charges for.

    port scanning public proxies will always be superior to scraped proxies
    because anyone with url scraper can scrape the same lists everyone else
    can - this is why the proxies die so fast - your all scraping testing the same
    proxies over and over.

    why proxyfire is 100x times better is because proxyfire allows you to scan ip
    address blocks for open proxies > if you no where to scan < and the users
    with the url scrapers cant get these public proxies , also port scanned public
    proxies will always last 5x longer than scraped public proxies simply because
    eveveryone with a url scraper is scraping testing the same proxies as the last
    10k people.

    with a port scanner your looking for ip address blocks to get public proxies that
    you guys with the scrapers can NOT get or touch .

    ps the best url scraper i ever came across was built by marcus of romanware.com
    i bought it in 2006 for 25$ and nothing beats it then or now. just that now i no
    and having been a proxy collector since 2003 using scrapers and port scanners
    i no for sure that port scanning is superior to scraping > PERIOD <

    I have manage now to find elite proxies. But they wont work with Senuke. I just scraped for new proxies I tested them in another program almost every proxies was ok. But when using them in senuke it tells me that the are not working.
    Why? Am I doing something wrong?

    very few scraped proxies are elite, very few
    they are 80% transparent 19% level 2 and 1% elite
    proxy goblin just wont find masses of elite proxies

    So proxy goblin is for no use for people using Senuke? What about Scrabebox? Is that better?

    Hi,
    I'm using ProxyAbuse, because it's the only program which redirect my private proxies and my leech public proxies on localhost multiports. After I just have to complete all my SEO software with 127.0.0.1:[OUTPUT PORT]. But it seems this software is only used in France.

    your missing the point, any tools thats scrape public proxies
    such as proxy grabber, proxy goblin, forum proxy leecher, scrapebox,
    all harvest proxies from urls, lists of proxies posted on forums..
    each tool may look different, but what they do is the same, harvest
    already posted listed of proxies, so the results you will get will not
    alter .

    in answer to your question any of these tools will get very few
    elite proxies - thats just the way it is.
    grabber, proxy goblin, forum proxy leecher, scrapebox,

    Thanks my last question.
    How can it be that proxies from goblin when tested in scrapebox, all of them didn't work. When testing the same proxies in Licorne AIO almost every proxies was alive. Why this different?
