    Hi,

    how many pubic and private proxies I need if I want to get 100,000 live comments links from each campaign?? I will run at least 10 campaign each day.

    for that i guess i need to harvest 500,000+ links.

    so let me know how much proxies i need.

    and best sources to buy proxies. not very high price.

    The way I'm used to do it is scraping with shared proxies and posting with private ones. 10 - 20 private proxies should do the job.

    hi rokebono


    how many shared proxies you use for harvesting 500,000+ links daily? do you buy them, if yes, where? and at how many aa list you post comments with 10-20 private proxies? means does you get 100,000+ live comments with 10-20 proxies?

    Hi. Well you'd better talk with proxygo, he is one of the most reputable sellers out there so he will give you all the details you need. You need a subscription for daily shared proxies and another one for 10 - 20 private ones. As I said this is the way I do it, there are guys who scrape and post with the shared ones but from what I know this is not the best way to do it. PM him and I'm sure he will find a solution for you.

    No-one has answered the question.
    He's not talking about SCRAPING - he's talking about POSTING

    The answers here sort of tell me that no-one really knows what the feck they are talking about.
    There are 2 questions.

    1) How many times are you posting on the same domain. Does your list include multiple URL's form the same domain?
    If so only THEN should do you normally even need to consider proxies.
    Do you have domains where you are posting on 20+ URL's on that domain>
    No? Ok then no proxies required so for then..

    2) Do you have a have a super vigilant ISP. If no then you do not need ANY proxies.
    If you do then maybe get 5 proxies.

    You need a lot of proxies for scraping NOT posting. This guy is talking about POSTING and doesn't mention SCRAPING.

    So in a nutshell:

    Scraping involves multiple calls to Google (or whoever you are scraping from) and Google/Yahoo or Bing monitor the IP's that search requests come from and will ban ones that seem to be making too many requests in a short space of time. This is why you need proxies for scraping

    Posting involves going to thousands of completely different IP's often only visiting each one only once or just a couple of times at the most (multiple links from the same IP/domain are not worth much anyway) so you often need no proxies at all unless you have a very vigilant, ISP

    I've posted 100,000 blog posts with no proxy many many times with no issue.
    If I tried to scrape 100,000 pages through google with no proxy I'd get banned in 10 minutes so use proxies

    Since there is only one guy who answered OPs question you should have pointed out that its ME the one who don't know "what the feck" I am talking about.


    While I am by no means a scrapebox expert, the OP clearly don't know too much about it and in fact he is talking about BOTH SCRAPING and POSTING (he used harvesting instead of scraping which both are synonyms).
    He needs to make an aa list and then initiate at least 10 campaign so unless he is not buying the lists ( which he clearly showed no intention) he needs proxies for both SCRAPING and POSTING.

    Fair enough. Please accept my apologies.


    Would be good to point out you need zero proxies for posting most of the time.

    Also - 100,000 good URL's from a scrape of 500,000?
    That's never going to happen - not unless he has a tardis and can go back to 2009. The idea that 1 in 5 URL's you scrape will be good?
    These days you're lucky if it's one in 50... and as far as those that actually accept the comment and publish the link - more like one in 500 and those that are genuine AA? Even less

    My last scrape of 3 million URL's using the Scrapebox scheduler plugin ended up with just under 2800 real first time AA blogs and about 13,000 more were none AA - most of which also required captcha solves.
    This is 2800 verified comments. Overall rate was under one in a thousand. and AA blogs are shite - precisely because they are AA

    No problem at all Scritty, it was a misunderstanding, it can happen to all of us.

    Could you explain this a little further please? As I said, I'm not an expert in SB and I want to clearly understand what is the right way. You said that you need no proxies, but isn't this true when you're making blog comments for yourself, for your own needs? I mean, when you're a scrapebox blast seller as the OP appears to want to become with "at least 10 campaigns each day", you need much more than 1 IP but when you have a few sites and you want to post some comments isn't okay if you only switch the IP in case you have a dynamic one?

    If he's going to do ten blasts a day I'd go for 5 proxies maybe - 10 at the outside.
    Better maybe one of those that rotates shared proxies. Remember the sites you post on barely check the IP address. If you visit once a day ( as an IP) they really won't care. Twice a day? Still probably ok. 10x a day - yeah - you might trigger Akismet or similar before that.
    Scraping though he's going to need a lot. THink in terms of 20-40 or so.
    Running 1 thread per 10 proxies in Google is quite safe. 4 threads can scrape 1 million URL's in 4-6 hours on a fast (100Mb) pipe so that should be ok for most things.
