    Hi everyone I have a few questions about scrapebox
    I couldn't afford to use private proxies at the moment so I used the ones provided. My question is what is the penalties if the public proxies don't work
    and if my ip is banned by askimet what are my options.I have read the forum over and over and i can't find an answer.Also if I use the slowposter in scrapebox will I have less risk of getting banned. Personal experience only please no BS.

    There are tons of great free proxies posted here every day. Just copy the lists, paste from clipboard, then remove duplicates, test them. Remove failed, remove high latency above 2000ms. Save to main list. Do this every day.

    make sure to tell the user all the free proxies posted
    are a combination of

    transparent proxies
    with level 1 anonymous
    and level 2 anonymous

    sure he can probably post with some of the
    anonymous ones - but the transparent ones
    wich most people use to url scrape with will
    leak his ip all over the net.

    public proxies are only as good as the advice
    given on how to use them to best effect

    99% of lists on bhw of free proxies for scrapebox
    are probably 60% transparent proxies 40% anonymous

    if he wants a way round that he needs charon to test only
    for working anonymous proxies then re-test the working
    ones in scrapebox - or his proxie list will be littered with transparent
    proxies leaking his ip all over - and this is why people get akismet banned
    be a shame if he got akismet banned for not telling him that

    If you can't afford private proxies then use public proxies but don't use your own... If askimet bans your IP then all of your comments will go to spam folder which will waste your effort...

    Using slow poster will not save your IP, you are still spamming... It just increases your chance of getting more links because lots of sites are using captcha support which will not work with fast poster...

    or he take some public proxies of the forum
    filter out the transparent level 3 proxies

    test the remaining anonymous ones
    in charon - remembering to filter
    edu,gov.gateway proxies.
    and just be left with a few anonymous ones

    My IP is leaked all over, I dont filter only anonymous proxies. I am banned by Akismet. I still get thousands of backlinks every day. Scrapebox is much more efficient with good quality anonymous proxies, but it isn't 100% necessary in my opinion. Search google for Charon proxy tester to find the tool that proxygo is recommending to test your proxies.

    I will make a point about Akismet I have in the past... They are proud of blocking 9 Million spam messages today. I have posted 100,000 today, and I am small scale compared to some other people. 9 Million is probably less than 5% of bot posted messages.

    Akismet is just a plugin to try to stop spam comments from reaching your blog. Its not installed on all blogs, only wordpress blogs, and probably only 20% of wordpress blogs have it at most.

    There are no real consequences of being banned by it, except that IF a wordpress blog is running Akisment, it will automatically flag your comment as spam so the blog owner doesn't even see it, this means it cant be approved.

    Akismet is a joke to me. Doesn't scare me at all.

    The only other thing is that if you post MILLIONS of comments from your home IP, someone may report you to your ISP as being a spammer, but that is NOT likely to happen at all. That is more for mass emailing, not blog commenting.

    Rapid indexer, trackbacks, mass PR checker and mass backlinks checker are good for buying expired domains.

    how to find proxies? dont use the 7 sources that come with scrapebox as everybody is using them and they are unreliable.

    1. Find a proxy list site.

    2. use scrapebox's sitemap scraper and get all the URLS.

    3. load all the URLS into your proxies scraper.

    4. scrape all the proxies and test them for speed and usage.

    I did this recently and my sucess rating has gone from 10-20% up to 40-60%. I wont tell you what site im scraping off of because to many people will use it, but do some google searches :).

    I have been having the hardest time finding proxies lately too.. I know proxygo service is good but I can't afford 110.

    Anyone know another reliable provider that is cheaper or an easy way to get free ones? If you harvest 5,000 from scrapebox sources maybe 9 of them are still working.

    Am I just crazy lucky here or what is going on? All the proxies I harvest from the scrapebox sources have a pretty decent success rate. Don't harvest 5,000. Harvest only the first 3 options, then test those and you should have 20-30 good proxies, with low latency.

    Also, as mentioned before, there is new proxies posted in the "proxy" section of BHW almost every day. Do you know where that is, and how to copy/paste them into Scrapebox? On average 20% of the ones I copy off of here are good to go, and probably at least 10% have low latency.

    I just copied proxies from the first thread in the Proxy Lists section and loaded them into Scrapebox. It was 599 proxies. After testing the proxies, 109 passed, 490 failed. After removing failed proxies, I filtered to remove the High Latency (anything above 2000ms) proxies and was left with a list of 41 good proxies to use.

    That list is good enough for me to use all day, and I will do that again tomorrow. You aren't going to get 100% success rates no matter what. Just re-load your lists after posting, and run them again and again.

    If you are worried about bandwidth usage, or using your computers resources, you can purchase a VPS for $10.00/month for basically unlimited usage of scrapebox 24/7 and you WILL get thousands of backlinks every week with those public proxies.

    I like squid proxies. The guy that runs it has a special right now for BHW members. You can get 10 private proxies for $18 a month, pretty darn good price from what I can tell. Ive been using them for a month, havent had any problems yet.

    Interesting.
    Although I understand you can't just yell out your strategy, I still have to ask you something:
    I must be looking at wrong proxy lists because when I go to (for example)
    the website 'proxy4free'

    SB's proxy harvester will find 0 proxies for each link.
    This makes sense because if you browse to a site listed in the above URL you will only get a page to browse sites, no proxy IP's.

    Could you PM me a 'slightly' more detailed explanation of your tactic?
    It would be more than appreciated:)
