Scrapebox Poor Performance

    Hi,

    I have had scrapebox for about two years and unfortunately it was just something I shelved along with the rest of my "I'll test it soon" stuff. I have just started tinkering with it, and for some reason I can never EVER make Yahoo or Bing return any results (keywords ALWAYS fail). Google returns at most 1000 results.

    This is literally me just entering a keyword in the harvester box and clicking harvest (yes I am using proxies). The proxies are free and are sourced from SB's internal source, and I test them in the following manner:

    Connections: 20
    Timeout: 5 seconds

    No other tests or boxes enabled. I have a feeling it's the proxies, because when finish the first test, and then I do a test again, 90 percent of the proxies that previously passed fail immediately.

    Am I right? Or am I missing something?

    Google only allows 1000 results per keyword. That is pretty obvious why you're getting only 1000 results isn't it?

    Update to the latest version, Bing and Yahoo are working fine for me, I am not getting any results from AOL, but haven't looked deeper into that; if you are using free proxies, you might want to use more generous timeout

    Yes. That's why I asked the question. Because I was aware of the answer already. I do that a lot. I waste people's time b y asking questions I know the answer to.

    And the Yahoo and Bing problem? Do I know the answer to that too?

    Using a more generous timeout just gives me shitty proxies that don't last. At least the faster proxies tend to be better quality (or so I've noticed). Maybe I'm wrong. Plus banging my way through 6000 proxies with a timeout of 20 seconds takes a riDONKulous amount of time.

    Thanks, but I'm fully up to date. I'm not really bothered about AOL as it doesn't really feature in my strategy, but Yahoo and Bing I want (want, not need). I can do without, but it's annoying lol

    Oh, I've also noticed that the PR checker doesn't always agree with other PR checkers.

    Haha.. don't go gaga over the tool if you are not able to use it. Hundreds of others are using it and are happy with it and are making good enough money from it.
    If you feel results are not coming fine, the just add more timeout to harvesting.. use less number of threads if you are on a slow connection.. Test it for generic keywords first.. It's quite possible your keywords might not be returning many results..
    If you still face some problems, try it with private proxies indeed.
    If you still face the problem, then contact the support forum..

    I'm anything but gaga, I assure you.

    More timoeout toharvesting is probably the most sensible response so far. Thanks, I'll try that.

    You might want to read what you said.

    Either you have issues expressing yourself or I just can't read a seemingly obvious question. I'm pretty sure it's not the latter.
