Scrapebox doesn't harvest a LOT of keywords

    Hey guys!

    So I build a list of keywords (~3000) and when I hit harvest in Scrapebox, it will run ok and finish it but then on the report I see there are A TON of keywords marked as "Not completed" in pink instead of "Completed" (green).

    No error message, nothing... Any idea why this happens?

    Thanks!

    Proxies. The proxy used to harvest that keyword was dead and then all subsequent proxies that were tried for that keyword (depending on how many retries you have set in the settings) also were banned by that engine.

    So you can try to up the proxy retries for example, or get better proxies.

    Hi loopline, and thank you.

    I bought 10 private proxys, which pass the Scrapebox tests without problem. Maybe I need more proxys? Or what do you mean by "better proxys"?

    Thanks again!

    Have you tried scrapebox support? And yes,You might need more proxies to get in done easily.

    10 private proxies at 1 connection, with basic keyword is "probably" ok. But I try and stay at 1 connection per 15-20 private proxies for basic keyword search and if we are talking advanced operators then 1 connection for every 30-50+ proxies.

    Back connect proxies could be a good option for you if you only need to scrape.

    You can read about back connect proxies here:

    Seems like throwing more proxies in solved the problem ;).

    I'll investigate and try the back connect proxies, though. It might be a neat solution.

    Thanks!

    Regards
