    Soo i refused using scrapebox cause pupblic proxies didnt work but i finally used public sources from other source (google passed)

    and badum ts it scrapped me 1,100 urls !! i set up to 100 per keyword , thats nice


    but later 10min later I ran it with same setup and it says:
    getting proxies...
    harvesting...
    0 urls harvested.. done..


    while same damn footprint written in google returns me a lot.

    So why it sometimes work sometimes doesnt??
    ps i stood half day on it reseted it etc stil didnt work. i have like 125 proxies that should pass google but not working. sometimes i put 7 sometimes more, still nothing

    public proxies are notorius for being unreliable. If you dont want the head ache of this, just go get private dedicated proxies.

    Well try scraping a handful of sites without proxies. If it returns results then you know its working fine, then it is a question of if the proxies are working or not. I would suspect it iss the proxies themselves. There are also other scrapers out there you can use as well, if you cant seem to get it going.

    as noted above, if it works without proxies then proxies is the problem. Based on your scenario, if I was betting money on it Id bet 99% chance its your proxies.

    you can also go to help >> show error log >> harvester - what are the errors?

    Sometimes the error is 302 also the tested doesnt say if it passed google or not. sometimes it says error 0 and COMPLETED --- these works someeeetimes. if there are other errors then its not working.

    alright im downloading gscraper.

    anyway, people say its bad to use private proxies for scrapebox because they get banned in second, is that true? how much can you harvest with 10 proxies?

    You are using public proxies and complaining they do not work? Seriously?

    And if they are getting so easily banned, scrape Yahoo or Bing, which are less ban-prone.

    If you want proxies for scraping, go with Storm Proxies. They have sales thread here on the BHW and they are the best proxies I have ever used for scraping.

    Private proxies are fine to scrape with, but you have to be smart. That said the ones you bought may already be blocked.

    302 is a block. error 0 means the connection was ended or never left your machine, so make sure you whitelist scrapebox in all security software and your router.
