    New to SEO and Scrapebox. Currently trying to use Scrapebox to build some backlinks to my web 2.0 sites.

    I have four private proxies. I tried to steal the backlinks to another obvious affiliate site, 50k+ backlinks to the main page. Ended up with 8k+ backlinks in the blog analyzer, and the vast majority come back as "error 504". I keep hitting "restart failed" and each time I get a few more links. Tried playing with the connection settings, from 4 all the to 100. Same results, very slow and only a few more links each time. After running it about 10 times I had 2k out of 8k. Finally just went with what I had, and put the wordpress blogs into the commenter. 174 wordpress blogs, put it in slow mode and finally got 18 submitted... more error messages mostly.

    Why do I keep getting the 504 errors?

    These errors are not special ScrapeBox errors they are regular HTTP error codes. You can go to Help >> Server Error Code Reference to see what they mean, or do a Google search.

    Next time when you encounter any error while using SB, Go to SB menu --> help --> Click on server error code reference. It will show you all the error codes with short info. For more information just Google the error code.

    As you are checking backlinks for single URL, I suggest you to try SEO Spy Glass, a part of "SEO Power Suite"

    Thanks guys. Believe it or not I actually did google it and search for it here as well, but I can be pretty dense and still did not understand. If I am reading things right, which I am probably not, it does not look like I can fix this problem.... Tried the same process on a few other sites with the same results.
