    Hi BHW,

    I'm new around here and just picked up Scrapebox a few days ago. Coming from a (naive) whitehat marketing world I was merely interested in exploring the product, and really didn't have a plan of action. That said, it's certainly changed the way I look at the web as a whole.

    Anyways, I have a few (possibly very newbie) questions about Scrapebox that I'm hoping you sb pros can help me understand.

    1) When harvesting urls or comment posting, how many public (tested) proxies do you normally use for safety? (For say, 10k urls?)

    2) When harvesting urls, the 'connections' you see are the proxies. My question is if it drops down to 1 connection, is this your personal IP? Do you 'abort' at that time? (I have been :p)

    Lastly, and a bit unrelated. Let's say you have targeted email list of say 5k emails. What software/services/scripts do people commonly use to send an email blast? And what's a reasonable price that you expect to spend accomplishing such a thing.

    Hopefully some of the questions are useful to other members as well - but I guess we have to start somewhere. Knowledge is power!

    Cheers

    1. u can use 20 for that many urls, but most use 100s
    2. no if you tick the box "use proxies" SB will never use your IP

    cheers

    I Use 100-200 public proxies for harvesting from Google. Latency <1000ms. Or you can use only 10 private proxies if you don't want to harvest from Google and want to use Yahoo only.

    Connections are not proxies. Even if you have 10 proxies, you can use as much as 200 connections. Connections is actually the number of threads/requests you're sending out to search engines.

    I don't have much experience with email marketing but I think Interspire and Mail Mascot are two good pieces.

    Hope it helps :)

    get private proxies. they are not that expensive and faster.
