    OK guys I was a Scrapebox user years back and since I have come back to the world my Swiss army knife is back up and running. Of course I soon enough noticed the new harvester and even the new fast poster.

    My first problem is say I'm using the original poster and select the platforms tab and just for the purposes of this say I selected them all. It was harvest but will come back with nothing. When the keywords sucess/failed box comes up none of my scraped keywords show just lots and lots of footprints which will of course be the ticked boxes. Can someone help me with this because I'm sure others are not having this or I would be finding posts similar to this.

    My second problem is with the Scrapebox new harvester. I scrape my proxies yes public so yes I expect them to die quick but I could have 50k keywords and it will comes back up 1000 odd. It's like when a search engine errors on a pub proxy it doesn't change proxy or even move on to next keyword but just stops. If I use the old school harvester with same keywords I will get hundreds of thousands of results. It feel like something is not working or a massive backstep?

    Can any one offer some advice on this?

    Thank god it's not just me. I have contacted SC technical team but not heard anything back. If you would contact then it may help raise the issue and anyone else who is experiencing this issue should too. If enough of us make noise they have to take notice.

    I really want to use the new poster but at the moment I cannot afford private proxies to do so. I imagine this would help but still shouldn't be essential as simply moving to next proxy until one works is what should be happening not just stopping dead once it gets one 403 etc.

    Nikoinc1 I have tried turning proxies off and it seems to gather fine so this is what makes me believe privates will work but still of course we expect proxies to die but for a tool likr SB to not support this is a bit shocking. I have a lot of respect for Scrapebox and I hope they act on this issue being it is a pretty major flaw by any means.

    I understand your pain, I decided to subscribe to the
    Lifetime Proxy Membership here on BHW.

    I was thinking somebody with a little more experience
    with scrapebox would be able to assist us, but the answer
    is something we already know.

    I haven't purchased it yet, but I know that is why
    I'm having issues. Scrapebox on YouTube always
    says that we will have issues with public proxies.

    Maybe the Subscription will Help, Then Fiverr Scrapebox
    Blast
    to Recoup The Cost Of Subscription & Some.

    Hope That Helps,
    Scrapebox isn't gonna listen to the little guys who don't
    have enough to pay for proxies IMHO.

    It is in some way to do with proxies however you don't really want to be scraping with privates as they will in the long run get banned hence why public is the way to go. That said Scrapebox damn well should listen bearing in mind we cannot be the only ones suffered such a huge flaw. You have to admit the fact the normal proxy works fine in fact works well with Google even though I am using Google failed proxies and it seems to work better then with the Google passed ones.

    The real point of this thread is your harvester is broken if it cannot figure out how to move onto the next proxy if the current isn't working. I am rather shocked to see such an error in any of SB's software because it has always been so spot on.

    Are you currently selling on Fiverr Nike? If you don't mind me asking but what type and amounts of link are you selling? I'm guessing your doing the EDU thing? I've never been great at building AA lists. I think I need to be using the backlink checker but I am confused as to what this does. I imagine it pulls links to all the other posts that will also most likely be AA? Is this it or am i missing some huge step?

    Let me know if this solves your issue and what the quality of the service is like. How much is it?

    Personally I wouldn't be buying those proxies either they are just Google passed proxies and I imagine you will suffer the same issue. You need your own private ones. Else your just paying for someone to run the test for you.

    Scrapebox has been having a few problems lately. I just uninstalled Scrapebox and re-installed an earlier version and then updated the normal way. Most of the problems I had simply disappeared for some unexplained reason.

    I run keyword gigs on fiver, you can find me under my name NikoInc
    but plenty of people have scrapebox gigs
    on fiverr, so if you are good at something
    then by all means sell it to the highest bidder.
    If you look on fiverr you will see that some people just
    don't know how to advertise. If you can make your gig look
    better than the next guys gig, the better for you. We have to start
    somewhere. There are Fiverr exchanges in the forum which can be helpful.
    I haven't done it because I'm busy altcoin trading.

    Also there is a nice thread on here that shows how to clean an aa list that
    has been used before. It's very in depth.

    Again nobody here is going to agree that sb is broken due to the harvester not working
    with public proxies. Its a Majority Rules thing. People have been complaining about their
    issues with scrapebox on here since it's birth and most of it falls on deaf ears unless it effects
    the Majority.

    Find the 2 Guys who have big post about sb on here, they are a Wealth of Knowledge.

    Hmmm the harvester does work with publics and bearing in mind the rule of thumb is scrape with public and post with private seems Scrapebox although still top of its game is losing its repuation it once had being it never used to have major issues in all the years I have used it.

    I was thinking of trying this to be honest as yes in the past has the same kind of issues. I don't hold much luck with the present problem seeing as the old harvesters works fine with publics but the custom does not. It certainly seems so I imagine its going to be a slipperly slope from here on in regarding SB. I imagine its not making enough because people either already have it and or it isn't useful for building links which was a big selling point way back.

    Yes among others basically if I scraped using custom it would go until it hit an error regardless of what and rather then changing proxy and moving on it just stops scraping from that site altogether. Seems a bit F'd up if you ask me. If I scrape using normal exact same keywords works fine. So clearly it is an issue in changing proxy of some sort.

    That is normal, if you then go on to export the not completed keywords to your list you will see that it is footprints followed by keywords.

    What search engines are ticked? What do you mean "comes back up 1000 odd?" If Bing is ticked then untick that and see if it helps.

    You are right as it goes I will have to do more playing with platforms tab proxies no proxies etc I will post if after some playing it still fails to scrape when ticking all or any of the platform boxes.

    As for the custom harvester by 1000 odd I just picked a low number because for example using same proxies same kw's custom harvester will scrape a little hit an error and stop. No changing to another proxy or even just skip the KW it just stops dead and comes back with xxx urls in xxx time. However if I switch over to original harvester multi threaded it will scrape just fine but of course I am limited to 4 search engines rather then all the rest in the new one.

    I have tried all different combinations of S engines and found G and Yahoo to be the only ones which scrape proper without crashing SB after a long run.

    As for which search engines are ticked when using custom I have tried all manner of combinations and singles. If I turn off proxies it works turn them one the problem throwing errors and just stopping dead occurs on that s engine. Doesn't move on.

    Incredibly annoying when moving on to a new proxy or even kw shouldn't be much in terms of coding when in comparison to the level of coding already seen in sb.

    Oh the custom harvester; I was reading your post wrong. I have had lots of trouble with that as well. I found that auto harvesting proxies (for me at least when I tried) worked the best. You have to play with the settings to make sure it stays running though. Otherwise it seems to use up the proxies and then stop.

    Hmmm that is interesting I must admit I have had some runs not by any means acceptable but better then others so I guess I will have to play around with settings and see if I get any improvement. It is nice to know I am not the only one having issues. I guess when my payments clear private proxies will need to be first on that list.

    Although I have got the custom harvester to scrape certain engines without halting it is at least scraping fine for select ones. I will gather a list and post over the next week or so as until my payouts it is all I have in building my first aa list for Fiverr gigs.

    Seems people like big numbers even if the links are worse then what my nan could make and she's never used a computer :)

    Hey insyncearnings,
    For your first question, did you try and hover over the results in the sucess/failed box. If you do, it will show you the full keyword merged with the footprint....maybe that was it.

    For your second question, I also had the same issues with the custom harvester. It only harvests about 500 results total when all of the engines are ticked, and then it just stops. In the standard harvester, Google is really hard to get to work as the ip's are banned with a 302 error. Public proxies really do not work very well. I think I will start to look for private proxies.
    Cheers.
