General Scrape Box Tip On Proxies --------------------------------- If your using addons, and various methods of posting/scraping, it is important to understand what is going on in the background, rather than just clicking and hoping. There are two reasons why; 1. You will avoid getting your IPs blocked by sites 2. You may save yourself hours upon hours of time Now you will be well aware that SB has an inbuilt proxy harvester, and the ability to use proxies. Some people seemed to think that USE PROXY is something you should have ticked all the time. It isn't, and heres why; Using Proxies WILL slow scrapebox down upto 50%, especially if your using publis proxies. However PLEASE don't stop reading now and go away to turn off proxies......that would be a really bad move. The reason you use proxies is to avoid certain websites/services blocking your IP address because you made thousands of requests. All the proxy function is doing is to spread those requests across mutiple IP addresses. So....if your scraping or harvesting or doing ANYTHING which requests information from the same source, you MUST have proxies turned ON. Another example would be the backlink checker addon (which queries yahoo.com). HOWEVER, if you are using an add-on such as 'backlink-extractor' there is no point whatsoever in using a proxy. Even with the built in checker, I don't believe there is any point in turning on proxies.....all it will do is slow the process down. As for the comment poster......my suggestion would be to leave proxies turned on...... as if your posting spam your IP may get added to a blacklist. If your planning to change your IP then fire away and don't worry about it. Hope that helps so of you.
