    Hi does anyone know what are good/bad proxy speeds?

    In GSA my private proxies are listed as 13.500 to 0.203

    Is the higher number a faster proxie?

    No.

    A proxy speed is measure in time response, how quick that proxy respond, like on a ping.
    A faster response mean a faster proxy, in your case 1 proxy response in 13.500 sec (I guess ) and the other in 0.203 sec. So the second is the better

    Usually the timeout is measure in milliseconds but this depends from software to software.

    Thank you.

    You want the smallest numbers for sure. 13 seconds for example would take for ever to do a scrapebox blast with proxies like that. Try for proxies with less than a 1 second speed.

    Ping is not most important factor to measure a proxy speed. What matter most is proxy total time for each request. Even this does not say it all, I've proxies with 250ms+ ping, total time over 5 second. When I download using this kind of proxy, it may still max my download speed.

    I recently tested proxy that was extremely slow when I browsed but it still gave me 10Mbps download speed. Nothing is ascertain.

    I said "ping" as an example and not use it as the best method to test a proxy.

    Second I thing the op is talking about response time since this is what is important for seo tool.

    Thank you
