    You using windows xp/vista or server 2003 by any chance? Also is your timeout like 1ms? Please post your stats here so people can help you. I usually get 500+ Google Scraping Proxies or if I am going to go blasting blog I use "Ignore Google" on the new harvester so I get like 1000 Proxies. I do have more sources then the ones provided in SB but with SB sources you are bound to get half of mine.

    Why not get some private proxies? They give you way better results

    Check your internet connection and make sure your proxy is alive with delay bellow 100 ms

    Private proxies are the way to go. For the little you spend on the each month it is definitely worth it.

    I don't know why ppl bash public proxies all the time I've found them just fine.

    It usually takes me less than 5 mins to scrape about 10 and the speeds are just fine too.

    Just scrapped proxies with SB recently. Out of 1500, I got 100 working proxies. Kinda good I guess.

    I come from a land downunder
    5 minutes x 7 days = 35 minutes a week

    35 mins x 4 = 2 hours 20 minutes

    2 hours 20 minutes = $70 (@ $30p/h)

    10 private proxies = $25 per month

    seems like good value to me

    not cost efficient for me.

    I've had SB for a few months..Worked amazing for the first month and a half but its been working like shit for the past couple of weeks to the point where I cant even use it. I honestly don't get it man.

    I'm on windows xp but I don't know the relevance of any of this since it used to work perfect.

    It does not work, you work it. What I am trying to say is that the user makes the tool work or fail.
    Hundreds if not thousands are using SB on a daily basis if not 24/7, please decribe your workflow so that people here can help you.

    You can easily double your investment using scrapebox and private proxy. Public proxies are only good for scraping, nothing more. I have 5 scrapebox instance running now on 5 vps and they are running like a beast just with 100 private proxies.
