    This will affect my scraping so I wanna know if a proxy is banned by G is it banned forever or is it the 'softban' of a few hours?

    The answer will determine how often I have to scrape new proxy lists. If forever I'll have to dump the old lists but if they become live again I can just cycle lists periodically.

    I don't know for how long they are banned but it's not forever that's for sure. Probably 1-2days at max

    I guess you could say it's a softban but it lasts more than a few hours, it's the same process by which you get banned when you make too many request from your home connection.

    Depending on your usage you should either scrape before every run, or every hour / half hour etc if you're running 24/7. I don't use SB but my proxy scraping / scanning / testing system runs every hour. In particular you need to make sure that your proxies are still anonymous - sometimes they will still work but they switch from anoymous to transparent.

    You should keep a list of every proxy that has ever worked for you and retest them every time you do a proxy run. You'll always find that a few are still up, and if those proxies are off the currently published lists that everyone else is scraping generally they work a bit better than your typical shite proxies.

    Well, this is what I'm doing and the reason for the post.

    If the proxies were dead forever then I'd have to chuck them and scrape all fresh all every day. If they were working and only temp banned I can keep them for the next day and keep cycling.

    Makes life a bit easier trying to tame the cruel beast that is G.

    My advice: do not discard them. Keep all your working proxies and add to the list continually.

    G soft bans for a few hours to a few days, either by banning you outright or by requiring you to fill a captcha.

    big G ban IP adressess and it can take from 1h to few days - I use 10 proxies for SB blasts and when G block my proxy I just let it 'rest' for 2-3 days and use again :)
