    Hi,
    I am currently teaching myself scrapebox. Proxies are obviously needed but what i dont understand is why (minus cost) anyone would ever use a public proxy? Is there some kind of advantage to this that I do not see?

    Thanks

    No. You can use public for harvesting and checking PR so your private proxies don't get banned.
    I use private for harvesting and posting. My time is too valuable to waste messing with public proxies.

    Ok thanks. This might be a stupid question but I am just learning. How does one avoid the private proxies getting banned? On some sites i have seen 10 proxies for 29.99 if you are blasting through them with scrapebox wouldnt they all get banned and the provider tell you sorry your SOL? Or are there providers who just give you a new 10 if those ips get banned? Do you have any suggestions for proxy providers?

    Thanks again

    Squid Proxies. They have a thread here on BHW. Search for them.
    They will replace your IP's once a month if you need it.

    Quite honestly, I have been using the same batch of 10 private proxies for harvesting/posting for about 2 months now.
    It might be just a fluke, but I can harvest 400k + links, without getting a single IP blocked.
    They got blocked at first for a day or two, but lately they have been fine.

    No it's not a fluke. I've also been using the same proxies for harvesting/posting forever and I never have any problems. However, if I had a huge list of blogs I wanted to check PR for, I might use public proxies. I'm not sure why but doing mass PR check seems to get proxies burnt out easier.

    If you need public proxies for harvesting/checking PR see this thread, but for posting I recommed a private (min. 10).

    So checking pr with public proxies seems to be generally accepted because it can possibly get the ip blackholed and when you are paying for proxies you do not want that. That is good to know. Thanks.
