    so i just got scrapebox and im still learning but its fuckin awesome so far! Im wondering if you guys think its a good idea to only use my private proxies (as i only have 10 from squidproxy) for posting only. Ive read a couple times now here that people suggest that but i dont understand why really. Why not use them everytime is the question i guess?

    If i have unlimited bandwidth, why does it matter how many keywords and urls i scrape? I am not questioning the method bc i am very inexperienced. I understand i am missing something, i just wonder.. what is it??!?!? :D

    thanks in advance fellaz

    Why not use them for everything? If you don't Google will just ban your IP if you were to say scrape a million URLs. Using proxies will stop your own IP getting banned by askimet etc. In other words if you're serious about scrapebox use private proxies for everything.

    The idea is that they will get banned by google when scraping.
    That being said, I use them for scraping, and have no issues. I'm also not using specific operators like "inurl:" or "intitle", which I think will burn your proxies much quicker.

    Basically because the main people who use those are using them for spamming.

    You can safely scrape 500 pages/IP from google. I did tests. That's one page every 3 minutes. You can scrape a bit more if you don't use the same footprint.

    I used private proxies for scraping and posting. If they get banned by Google it's not a big deal, usually temp ban for a couple hours.

    It's not a ban from Google that's your only concern. Burn out your proxies particularly with crappy unspun comments and Spamhaus/Akismet will kill your response rate within Scrapebox.
