    For the past week, my Scrapebox has been acting really weird... all the proxies that I scrape using Proxy Goblin, import into Scrapebox, check for Google pass and then save to Scrapebox to harvest... when I actually try harvesting (whether its just regular keywords or advanced operators) ALL the proxies are coming back as 302 IP Blocked (from Google).

    This was NOT an issue about a week ago and my Scrapebox was working great ... but since last week, I have been in touch with Scrapebox support and they haven't been much help at all. They offered to transfer my license over to another PC to test so I moved it to my virtual environment only to have the exact same problem. Keep in mind that I saved 400+ GOOGLE PASS proxies back to Scrapebox and ALL of them came back as 302 IP blocked (checked using single threaded harvester). I thought maybe the proxies died but I checked again and about 350+ were still Google pass.

    I can't get any work done whatsoever because I can't harvest ANYTHING... nothing seems to be working. I have NO idea what the problem could be. I used a tweaking guide on BHW to tweak my connection for Scrapebox which sped it up so I thought that might have caused the issue but I reverted all the settings back to normal and STILL nothing. Scrapebox support also informed that 302 IP blocked means that Google IS receiving the request but just rejecting the proxy. YES I have manually used the proxies to browse Google just fine. Any suggestions of what to try and correct this issue?

    Did the same thing with Scrapebox support ... they gave me about 600 Google pass proxies, I put them in, saved about 500 Google pass proxies back to Scrapebox and I still got ALL 302 IP Blocked errors. I have attached a screenshot.

    hey im just curious, how did you get that view on the harvester? I use scarpebox every now and then but have never seen that page where it breaks it down per request. On a side note i've been having issue's with custom footprints myself.... even if I use a pre-configured footprint

    There's a setting "use multithreaded harvester" just de-select that. Anyone know how I can test my connection to see what the problem could be?

    Hey did you tried to change your modem ip? These proxies may have put your modem ip in blacklist so you cant use them. I guess thats the problem.

    If that were the case, how come I can browse Google if I configure my IE to use a proxy that I've tried to use in Scrapebox? Also, have all proxies all around the world blacklisted my IP address?

    I was going to report the same thing - OK on Yahoo but 302'd on Google - the lot. Can only assume Google have got the same list now and are blocking the lot.

    My squidproxies are still fine.

    If the proxies work on yahoo but not google than its not your ip that get blacklisted than.Its the proxies that are problem. Didnt use scrapebox for 4 days. Let me check.

    Update : harvested some fresh proxies and they work on Google without any problem.

    Well I can't even check that because as per Scrapebox support, we were troubleshooting the problem by transferring the license to another PC. Apparently we're only allowed one license transfer per month and now I have no access to Scrapebox anymore as it was on my virtual environment. I didn't think the limit applied to me so I've contacted Scrapebox support to initiate another transfer -- I really hope they don't make a big deal about this as it's a support issue I am trying to resolve.

    Just dusted scrape box off today, and am encountering the same exact issue. Ordered some trusted fiverr gigs, let's see if they magically can't deliver this batch :)

    SB's proxy judge is flawed and the google test appears not to deal with country specific redirects and other exceptional responses. I'd recommend using other means to test harvested proxies.

    This doesn't make sense. If you're being blocked by Google by an IP then that IP will be temporarily useless. Perhaps your home IP is completely hidden through SB but somehow resolved elsewhere? And IP, where Google is concerned, will either be blocked or open - there's no in between.

    Have you considered that this may be a Google issue? A change in their detection system may be the reason why you're receiving an error. This could have nothing to do with SB (or any addons) but rather due to a change within Google's detection for automated queries.

    Have you tried other sources of proxies? I see a large list kindly posted above but what about spending $10/$15 for a SB proxy service?

    Having same issues with google passed proxies. Might be a change to google blocking proxies for searches. I've emailed SB support. Interested to know how many others having this issue too

    Weird, Scrapebox support told me that I was the ONLY one having this issue. Anyways, I just re-installed my VM and forgot I had my files backed up. I just booted up Scrapebox again, checked for Google pass proxies, saved to Scrapebox and tested it. With Google I am still getting 302 IP blocked and with Yahoo I am getting Error 999 -- so they're BOTH not working. I checked my home IP and I am blacklisted by three different services ... so I opened up my HMA premium VPN, connected to a VPN and then tried to run it again with Google pass proxies (checked again) and STILL its 302 IP blocked and 999 for Yahoo. So the issue is NOT with my IP address -- how can it be with the proxies if Scrapebox is showing them as Google pass?

    People don't usually use private proxies to harvest because one private proxy is like $10. I was with instantproxies.com and even their proxies are coming back as 302 IP blocked. I've used Proxy Multiply, Proxy Goblin and even the built in Scrapebox proxy harvester with my OWN proxy sources and STILL it persists. If Google did indeed change their detection method then isn't it time that Scrapebox updated their proxy tester to go along with the new Google changes? Really head over my heels trying to resolve this issue.. don't know what the problem could be.

    Also, how is it possible that only 1 or 2 proxies out of about 600 Google pass proxies is able to harvest only like 90 results each. It's really weird. On top of that, my Scrapebox is acting really weird; when I put in keywords and one keyword retrieves only 99 results, and the harvester fails as usual, it shows that the keyword is COMPELTE. How can it be complete if it has only scraped 99 results when I put it 1000 results?

    Mine are all blocked, too. These are freshly harvested from Proxy Goblin.
