    Hi evertyone.

    I was checking some sites in the proxymanager of scrapebox. Alot of sites is reported as anonymous by scrapebox but the sad case is that even transparent proxys are reported as anonymous. A transparent proxy does relay your real ip to sites so they should not be treated as anonymous.

    I have taken a 2 screenshot that proves this.

    So if you are using proxys tested by scrapebox for commenting or scrapeing you might get banned or reported to your isp.

    Hope this gets fixed soon

    Google doesn't really like people scraping with high anon proxies. A bunch, and I'd say most, of working sb proxies are transparent.

    Definitely use another checker to check the proxies sb calls anonymous and you'll get a better idea of what I'm talking about.

    Yes I noticed the same. Proxies that SB proxy manager categorized as anonymous were categorized transparent by both proxy goblin and proxyfire tool.

    What do you mean google dont like people scraping with high anon proxies? Do i understand this right since.... ofcourse they dont. then they cant ban the real person behind the scrapeing. They don't want automated querys at all if im not mistaken. But the scrapebox user is misguided by the proxymanager this is what i wanted to inform about.

    Test it out to see. Put a list of 'elite' proxies that pass another checker into sb and most won't pass google's test. Put a list of transparent and they do.

    I've always been pretty much as confused as you are Hat as to why sb/google wants you to use transparent proxies. Even with transparency, I haven't heard anyone's actual IP getting blocked, even temporarily, for using transparent proxies.

    Posting is fine with high anon proxes, though

    Ok i get what you wanted to say now :). My guess is that most public elite / anon proxies are already used and baned by google. thats why they don't work. however just as you said i have not heard about the ip behind a transparent proxy being banned howerver another guess is that if this escalate google will change and then all is at risk using it as it is now.
