    I was using scrapebox just fine. with 100+ working proxies.
    When I type in 3 keywords and use the wordpress option, it will start off with 3 connections to harvest, then quickly go back to 0 after 15 secs.

    If I use 1 keyword it will use 1 connection , same thing happens and I only get about 20 urls. (If I then filter the urls with the ******** plugin or pagerank check it will use many more connections again)

    I tested it with keyword "exercise".

    Before it was using a lot more proxies and pulling in 1000 urls quite quickly.

    No idea what is going on but right now scrapebox is not useable for me.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    - Proxies are fine and updated
    - Proxies are enabled
    - Tried low/high timeout settings and connection settings.
    - Tried different methods of harvest - wordpress, footprint, blogengine

    How large is your keyword list? If you're only using a handful of keywords, it'll finish harvesting very quickly. Try using 10k+ keywords.

    Wish I could be more helpful but I experienced something VERY similar to this recently.

    Mine just seemed to fix itself (thank GOD).

    I would suggest going to the scrapebox URL and emailing support? They have always been great to deal with.

    Your right, If i had in 10 keywords it'll get a whole bunch of urls again, thanks.

    The problem now is:
    Out of 1000 urls, the d0follow addon only detected 6 as d0, 162 at no follow, and 644 were "unknown".

    Is this normal? Seems pretty bad...

    When scraping Wordpress sites, on average about 1-2% will be ******** blogs.
