    That probably means something is blocking it. Usually there will be a number error code if the request actually reaches moz.

    So try whitelisting scrapebox in all security software, taking not that disabling isn't good enough, you have to actually whitelist the addon to solve the issue.

    Also for good measure make sure your windows/mac clock is synced with one of the world time servers that is included with your OS.

    Look at the attached image. The first few results were completed, after that error.

    I've experienced it, I do not know why, but I think you just need to add your API (or remove that error API), or add a few seconds to delay longer.

    As noted above, each api does 10 urls. So if thats the 2nd set of 10 urls, then its api #2 in your list. So that api my be missing characters, have extra characters or be setup wrong with the proxy etc.. so check and/or remove that api

    Also note, you are using more then 1 api, with no proxies. Moz will probaly ban all your apis if you continue. You want to have only 1 api per ip. So you should use a private proxy with all apis except 1 or with all of them if you like.

    Also be sure to keep connections equal to or less then the total number of apis you have. So 4 apis equals 4 or less connections.

    I'm having this problem as well. Im On Mac.
    1. Verified my Mac Clock Is Synced with Apple Servers
    2. I set all my connections to 1
    3. The PHP code from the MozScape documentation works. I can return good results if I run it from my computer so I know that my mozscape credentials are fine, and my ip isnt blacklisted by MOZ.
    4. When I try to use the scrapebox page authority addon with the same single URL, I get a 401 permission denied error

    Does anybody have any suggestions? Is there anyway I can see the urlstring that ScrapeBox sends to moz to try to debug this myself?

    Just to let everybody know, my issue was fixed with the 2.0.40 update. It was a Mac-specific clock issue. But, the scrapebox dev team was able to help me out.

    FREE

    I mean they have a free account that you get 25K lookups a month. But the addon supports loading in multiple free accounts and locking a unique private proxy to each one. Just make sure you create each one with that same unique private proxy in a browser and then use that one with it. Or if you doing less then 25K lookups just 1 is fine.

    So when using free API's do we have use at least 10? since even though I set the connections to 1, it always run 10 connections at a time, which results in errors.

    Its not running 10 connections at a time, its running 1.

    Each connection is 1 api call, moz api allows for up to 10 urls to be processed in 1 call. So you can make 1 api call every 10 seconds and each api call can process up to 10 urls. So scrapebox does the max and does 10 urls per api call, then delays 10 seconds (assuming you have the delay set to at least 10).

    If your getting errors make sure your using only 1 api per connection and your delay is at least 10.

    Else what is the error?

    Thanks for answering.

    Didn't know about the 10 urls per call, that's nice.

    I'm getting a mix of 401 and 429 errors:
    Error HTTP/1.1 401 Permissions denied: (RANDOM STRING)
    Error HTTP/1.1 429 Permissions denied: (RANDOM STRING)

    And successful ones, if I run again I get more successes.

    When I go in and look in the accounts, some of them has as many throttles as rows and errors, while other have a good ratio.

    Maybe it's because I have set the max connections to low, last I tried it was set to 1 connection for 12 accounts. My delay have been tested between 10 and 25 seconds.

    Also it seems like some of the api's/accounts work better, maybe the others are blocking some of my IP's

    QUESTIONS:

    Should I set it to 12 connections for 12 accounts/api's?

    If not putting the IP's in the API strings Like: Access-ID|Secret Key|ip:port:user:pass

    Does it use the proxies from the proxy manager if it's ticked to use them in proxy manager.

    Thanks again.

    Sure if you have 12 accounts you can set connections at 12. Each account has a max of 25K urls per month, so some of your accounts may be maxed, which may cause some of the 429 errors.

    No, it will not use the proxies in the proxy manager, you want to put private proxies, 1 per api key, in the format you listed above.

    Also if you look, your errors will come in groups of 10, they direclty correspond to the api below. So if you load in 120 urls and set connections to 12 and have 12 accounts, and urls 11 thru 20 and 51 thru 60 have errors, then thats api 2 in your list and api 6 in your list, as counting down from the top.

    If you keep getting errors on the same apis, then you can just remove those apis until next month and try again when their limits have been refreshed. or replace them with new ones. Or perhaps they have been shut down etc...

    Thanks, you have been very helpful.

    After putting the IP's on the end of the API's I get much less errors. Which makes sense after you told me about it.
