    Anyone else having problem with the page authority add on? I keep on getting Error 403 instantly the moment I click start.

    Tried new moz account with private proxy, doesn't work too.

    Moz accounts are not banned. Wrote a small php script to test my API credentials, no problem in getting back domain & page authority of those sites.

    No its working fine for me. Was talking to someone yesterday and they were getting results as well.

    If its an instant error that that would suggest the request is never making it to moz.

    If it does it without proxies then its not proxies (although Id guess its not even making it that far, but removing the proxies will tell you for sure).

    Which leaves a firewall or other security software on your pc or in your network, such as a router.

    Try disabling the router firewall as a test or bypassing the router all together.

    Also whitelist the page authority addon in all security software.

    I run my scrapebox on amazon vps. Was running perfectly fine for days, then all of the sudden Page Authority add-on stop working.

    No idea what I can do other than whitelist scrapebox and the addon in firewall. Still not working.

    Reboot don't help either :(

    Pretty sure moz is cracking down on APIs using scrapebox, I've started to get these errors nonstop.

    Even backlinks checker using Moz api isn't returning results.

    Both are working for me, but I have an really old moz account, and I don't use it a whole lot.

    There is the 25K monthly limit and they do seem to be cracking down. For example if you create more then 1 moz account and they can link them together, then they may well ban them.

    But functionally Scrapebox is working, but moz is for sure trying to shave off all the traffic they can, so be smart, use proxies to create the api and then use the same proxy with the api and use a unique mail address, probably from gmail or somewhere is best.
