    Testing proxies.
    Looks good after filtering but when I try them they don't work. When I check in google they are captcha protected.

    Testing without proxies.
    Set to 1 thread harvesting. Trying to find a way to pause every google request. Can't find it and my ip got banned.

    Tried the scrapebox learning mode addon.
    Had a bunch of guestbooks and teached the addon how to fill. After a short time and a few forms it seams to recognize all forms.
    But when I run them through 'Poster' I don't get any success.
    My guess is it is trying to find form with a sertain id or name. So you have to target a certain platform to be able to post.
    Why why why making form id/name required?

    Ended up making my own multithreaded posting robot in PHP and no it doesn't need the form id/name to work.

    How do you use scrapebox to avoid the problem I have?
    Cheers

    Update.
    I have my own proxy harvester tool in php.
    I have verified proxies that works with google from a php curl script.
    I then check the same proxies with scrapebox.
    Scrapebox says that the proxies are ip blocked.
    I tested with the keyword "test" so it is not those very hard commands lite intitle: etc
    I also checked what request scrapebox does using a very nice tool called urlsnooper2.
    So the google search scrapebox does is:
    I don't have permisson to post this link. Sorry. The link is a normal google query link.

    That if I have the keyword "test".
    So when scrapebox inform me that the proxies are blocked I recheck them with my php script.
    And in php curl it works.

    I have an enormous success rate with SB proxies and have added many of my own proxy lists to the ones already included with scrapebox. Perhaps you should save yourself some headache and get some private proxies as well.

    About the proxy the only thing I can say is to get some private proxy.

    For the second problem I do not have an answer since I do not use that add-on.

    What I can say for sure is that SB is a great tool if you know how to use it and you will never start to get to it full potential unless you do not start to ivnest.. get a VPS with a nice connection, get some private proxy and then you will see the result.

    SB is not a pain for me. It has been a great tool for me. You need to use private proxy because public proxies are not that good and has some drawbacks.

    @OP You need to check a google query in order to insure that your proxy is working. Displaying google through CURL shows the proxies is working but not if it is Google blocked.

    Tellin you this in order to save you a great amount of time, i lost 2 days over it once.

    However, i believe there are some changes Google wise dealing with proxies. The message you got, i had it with HMA VPN too and it was impossible for me to check the SERPS results.

    When I do test I use a tool called urlsnooper2. I can see exactly what request SB does and I tell you SB has some bugs that you need to know.
    If these issues are fixed then SB would be a nice working tool again. I know it has been working nice for me before but no longer.
    If I can make the proxies work with PHP but not SB then I probably know what I'm talking about.

    I have bought 10 proxies and it looks like it is working fine. I had some problem with google first and they gave me new proxies and now they works.
