    I am not sure if this is the right section but i am having a serious problem with my Scrapebox Free Link Checker Software. When i bought backlinks for my Youtube Videos or websites i usually use this software to check if these links have my website on them or if the link is valid.
    However recently i notice i have been getting some 404, 500, 600 errors even though
    these link are live and have my website link on them. Have anyone experienced this problem? How do i fix this problem? Is there an alternative to check bulk links like this software?

    Do you have working proxies?

    SB has always been weak with their live link checker. For years people would tell me that links they checked with SB were showig dead but when I manually checked they are alive.

    It is a SUPER tool for some things but I have not been thrilled with the link checking. It could be user error or a lack of training available for the user or something but it has never been accurate to any extent that I would consider it to be the go to tool for checking live links.

    No i do not have any proxies on my computer. Do you believe that is what is causing the errors?

    I think i got some answers from this earlier post http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo-tools/671767-case-study-comparision-between-scrapebox-link-checker-vs-turbo-ranker-backlink-checker.html
    It seems the software is giving an error code for links starting with a https
    which is a secured protocol.At least that solves part of the puzzle.

    This is the problem with any backlink checker. Often CDN's or hosting companies will block IPs because of excessive automated lookups. This leads to showing links as down or not available when they are actually online.

    It sucks but there's not much you can do.
