    ok it seems a few people are complaining that the
    scrapebox proxie checker doesn't work.
    first of all nothing is 100% reliable when testing against
    google - but - the proxie tester works.
    b4 we start make sure scrapebox is upto date first

    [​IMG]

    then do the following

    first of all goto options - make sure there isnt a check
    mark against > use new proxy harvester <
    i prefer the old 1 i find it works better for me option is found
    here

    [​IMG]

    next is the timout setting for testing proxies, by default it should
    be 45.00s if it isnt theres 2 reasons why. 1 you changed it.
    2 you havnt updated scrapebox to the latest version.
    adjust to 45.00s. how to change?
    goto settings > adjust time out settings > proxy harvester time out 45
    press apply / ok if you asked to

    [​IMG]

    next set the amount of proxies to be tested on your connection
    the faster your connection the higher you go, for safest results set on
    aprox 15-30 to do this click on
    settings > adjust maximum connections > proxy harvester slider to 15/30
    press apply / ok if asked to

    [​IMG]

    finaly goto settings > set multi thread harvester to 4
    this is the ammount of times s/box with test a proxie
    to see if its live

    if after all this you still cant get any working public
    proxies theres only 1 reason [ YOUR SOURCES ]
    last year i could get 1.5k passed the google check
    this year its down to 300 + for me and i scrape for
    a living - so it will be harder for you guys,
    like me - have to work for them.

    and the 7 links in scrapebox are a freebie there over saturated
    which means u have to find your own links to leech from
    or pay people to do it for you

    i think ive covered eveything hope it helps
    happy scraping

    @proxygo Thanks for the wonderful information you have shared here. I have said thank and given you a rep. I get all kinds of proxies and SB kills them when I test them. I am going to subscribe to Private Server and see if that makes a difference. The speed of my internet nowadays is pretty bad. I have tried everything else. I am running out of options.

    I've seen very similar results from November/Dec->Now.
    It's reassuring to know it's not just me.

    Likewise.

    I have also noticed a large drop in SOCKS proxies? The number of HTTP proxies seems to be relatively stable.

    in my experience proxies with 5k+ ms response time are totally useless in SB..high response time means the proxy not stable, easy to lose packets

    hey, thanks. I used to have reasonable success using the built in sources but the past couple times I tried I was getting none at all that passed the tests.

    I adjusted my settings as described above (every single setting I had was different than what you recommend) and here's my results:
    4945 proxies retrieved
    remove failed: 76
    remove duplicate: 48
    filter out high latency > 2000ms : 20
    second pass of testing, same as above left me with 4 good working proxies. I used to get more, but that was a while ago.

    @Proxygo...I really appreciate it the information because this is only my third day using SB and everytime I used it most proxies would fail and leave me with like 1 or 2 working ones.

    But I just adjusted my settings as you illustrated and so far I have a list of 4826 and 47 good proxies and counting!

    if your using the 7 sources provided by scrapebox
    dont - there a freebie only to get u started u cant rely
    on thoes 7 links because everyone else is using them
    making them garbage - to run s/box properly you need
    at least 10 private proxies to post with and fresh public
    proxies everyday to url scrape with wich you can find by
    hunting google - proxie sites - custom foot print in s/box
    or getting some1 to do it for you
