    Hello

    I was just wondering if Public Proxies are still best for SB harvesting? And if so, how many do I need? I've looked everywhere and heard mixed reviews and can't seem to find a concrete answer! I've heard Private Proxies will be fine and I need about 10-30 of these.

    Many thanks.

    You will get better results with semi-dedicated or private proxies, but if you have budgetary limitations and concerns about burning out your private proxies too qucikly, then you will need at least 3,000 public proxies to start your job, a way to replishness them frequently, and more time for your scrapes.

    i would slightly disagree there, because port scanned public proxies
    can match shared proxies by a mile. using shared proxies requires
    low thread rate so as not to get them banned everyone knows that
    so your slightly limited at a low slow scrape rate.

    private / shared proxies suffer the google 3 hr ban for to many requests
    public port scanned proxies dont suffer this so badly if you have a pool
    of around 4k google passed proxies the bans matter less

    i can put 4k Google passed port scanned proxies through s/box per day
    the results of that will far succeed a few shared proxies that already will
    have Google flagged them as there shared .

    I agree with you man about port scanned... But he asked for "Public Proxies", which usually means those proxies that everybody can use by simply doing a google search...

    standard scraped public proxies that everyone else is using
    and scraping i would agree are not worth the time.
    if its a choice between scraped proxies or shared. shared wins.

    port scanned public proxies vs shared, ide say port scanned wins.

    port scanned vs full private private wins, but costs alot more
