    I have set ~60k keywords for GSA Link list however when I start harvesting it just says "Harvesting, Please wait..."

    And then it doesn't harvest a single URL. It stays like that permanently with 0 harvested URLs...

    I'm using 7 private proxies. I test them and it says google passed so its not banned...

    Make sure you check the proxies you're using and tick "use proxies" above the list in SB.

    Most probably proxies are temp banned by google. Are those semi dedicated proxies or 100% private?
    Also, it will be almost impossible to harvest 60k keywords with only 7 proxies. They will burn fast even with 2-3 threads.

    The problem is not your keywords, put in 800K keywords (if your pc has that much physical resources, but 800K is about the max), its the threads. With 7 proxies your MAXIMUM possible threads is 1. You really should have 10 proxies with 1 thread/connection, for basic keyword search and 15 proxies or more with connection if your using advanced operators.

    Your going to fast and as mentioned above, your proxies are being banned. You may need to turn off the mutli threaded harvester and single threaded harvester and then turn on the delay and add a few second delay, because 7 proxies is really riding the line of going too fast.

    Just bought 10 private proxy fully private.

    You sure max connections for them to be able to run through a 60k keyword list would be 1 connection per proxy? I see people using 80 connections per 10 proxies

    Am I sure, 1000%, yes. People using 80 connections for 10 proxies are either using public proxies and changing them every 5 mins or getting their proxies banned.

    But don't take my word for it.

    Try it first, do 5000 keywords on 1 connection for 10 proxies.

    Then take the next 5000 keywords and do 80 connections. Post back here with the number of results you got for each one, and there is your answer.

    I think if I could say anything, anything at all, its don't take my word for it, just go test it. No one told me 1 connection per 10 proxies, I tested and tested until I figured it out. Just try it, try various options, you will find the sweet spot for the queries your after.
