Hello guys, I have recently started experimenting with Scrapebox and would appreciate your kind feedback based on your experience: I want to be totally safe when using Scrapebox and ideally would use proxies for every of its function, but as I understand from what @loopline said in another post, there are certain functions of SB that don't utilize the proxy list, even when its active (such as proxy harvesting/testing?) So my questions are these: 1. Does even something basic tasks such as proxy harvesting and then proxy testing (via google) can result in an IP ban/Google ban, especially if you are testing several 10k+ proxies at one go? 2. Does it make sense to use a VPN on the pc that I use SB, so it will have my actual IP hidden at tasks that SB doesn't utilize the active proxy list(such as the one described at point 1) ? 3. Can anyone recommend to me the safest "Connections, Timeout and Other Settings" parameters that I could use, for mostly email grabbing functions? Maybe just turning bars to the further left green corner should be too conservative and unnecessary? 4. Since I want to use SB mostly for email grabbing, initially I was planning to use just free proxies. Would your recommend that? Will SB do a good job in that, or should I seek a more specialized tools such as GSA proxy scraper, or even buy some private proxies? (I'm low budget so ideally would prefer to start with just the free proxies if they can deliver the job) Big thanks in advance to anyone for your help!
