    How many proxies are recommended to be used when commenting on blogs? For example with a list of 100k urls, tyically how many proxies should be used?

    A lot. And fresh ones - from sources where you can frequently get new batches, like a new batch for each comment run.

    Where's the best place to get free proxies from other than the sources built inside Scrapebox?

    Is it OK working with the public proxies it offers?

    I had some issues yesterday when I scraped the proxies from within Scrapebox I tested them and transferred the good/green proxies back to my main list to begin scraping URL's of Wordpress blogs to then run a comment run on them.

    The issue I had was that the job would just hang and I had to delete the proxy been used and start the job again until a proxy worked.

    Well if you have private proxies i would say about 10 to 20 should be fine. Now if you are using shitty free one's i would split up your blog list in to small files and harvest 20 to 50 proxies.

    There is no single best place. You can spend a lot of time chasing free proxy lists and hoping to be spoon-fed working "free" proxies...

    or you can learn how to leech from the right sources and/or spend a bit of money on a primo source that offers frequently refreshed proxies.

    Think about time = money, factor in how much of your time (machine time, human time, or the combination thereof) you spend hunting the elusive magical free proxies (that actually work - don't leak your real IP, and have low latency), and then consider if there are reasonably-priced, quality providers who would be a relatively small investment to save you a bucket of time.

    Why not invest in private proxies and enjoy saving time. I really got tired of the whole scraping and then testing the proxies so I bought 20 private proxies. I remember working with just half a dozen proxies too. 100K can be done with 6. :D

    Look around there are a lot of good proxy providers. I use someone called anonymous-proxies I guess (not my site, I don't even remember where I found it but works well with SB).

    so 2-3 would be okay for say 20k -30k blast at a time?

    If you used anymous-proxie site is it unlimited bandwidth?

    Also if you got 2-3 of these can u do as many 20k blast per day as you want ?

    thanks...

    I am not making any progress with free proxies... Need to get some sites moving up the charts...

    Gregstereo, I am hoping to get your opinion on this...

    SB is worthless without good proxies... I just need to know if 2-3 will be good enough and if they will burn out?

    While I am sure SB would work better with private proxies I have had very good success with the public proxies. A little more work, but with good filtering and testing they work just fine.

    I don't know that I'd call SB worthless under any circumstances, but using it with shit public proxies is like putting Schlitz beer in a Remy Martin bottle.

    For scraping the SE's, checking PR, and so forth I'll usually use a mix of tested, low-latency public proxies to get decent speed and save my primo stash. For mass commenting I run with as many primo proxies as will pass the tests. 2-3 will get burnt if you use them heavily for blog commenting, especially if your targets include any sites with anti-spam mechanisms.

    invest in some private proxies, you won't regret it.
    and with 100k you would probably need a good 1-3k with free proxies. private proxies, not so much though

    when you order private proxies and they get burnt, is that it or will the provider give you new ones?

    It varies. Some providers have an established policy such as a once a month new set of IP's. Not good enough for me.

    Some will give you new IP's when you ask for them (though they may tire of it if you frequently ask for them). And some have constantly refreshed (e.g. daily) sets. The latter are the best for my needs.
