    Ok, so I'm wondering if it's just me or if Scrapebox is not working right now.
    I just ran a test harvesting for keywords, food, weight, weight loss with 10 private proxies and it just returns 30 links and this

    It wasn't doing this earlier today, and I checked and my proxies are not blacklisted or blocked, I restarted my computer, restarted Scrapebox and still same output. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks.

    Google is getting really fast at banning IPs. On occasions Scrapebox's proxy checker will return that the proxy isn't blocked, when in fact it is.

    Try running single-threaded harvester and see what errors you get.

    Nope, now all of them do this: Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 8.23.44 PM.png

    So, you're saying this is because they banned ALL my private proxies?

    Using 10 proxies to scrape will get them banned in a heartbeat. Private are for posting your links. If you have 100+ private proxies and set the connections way way down you might be able to continuously scrape without getting the proxies blocked, but that's very expensive. You need either a good ammount of semi's to use, which the provider has no issues rotating for you whenever they get burned out, or a reliable supplier/software solution of good public proxies (like a few thousand daily) to perform decent scrape operations. You prob just got a soft block on those, they'll be able to search google again in 12-48 hours.
