I emailed stormproxies with the issue and they replaced my gateway. Did they do the same?
Thanks again! Yes, it's definitely worst when I use advanced operators. If I don't use advanced operators l get around 50 url/s but once I add them it goes down to around 10. I'll keep trying. Hopefully it's something they can address. Maybe I'll just have to upgrade the threads package. Even their highest tier is cheaper than most services. Thanks for the help.
They did not. Did it do the trick? They told me it could be something about my software's signature. Like Google could detect scrapebox' signature even with proxies. I googled that to see if it's a thing but didn't find anything. But please let me know if replacing the gateway worked. Thanks!
Still lots of errors. They'll probably get it fixed soon if lots of people are having the same problem.
Still able to scrape but lots of errors, more than before barely got any errors
Same here. Lots of errors and a lot slower. Significantly slower when using advanced operators. Thanks for the reply. If I notice any changes, I'll post in the thread.
I had 1 person today say that storm proxies refreshed their ip pool and they were now working. Ive no idea it storm proxies did something for just that one user or on the whole.
No improvement on my end. The last response I got from Storm Proxies was "this is because the change of last update in google that they have made more restriction in scraping." This response does not give me hope that they are doing anything about it. It seems like this is the new normal for them. Are other proxy services experiencing the same thing? Maybe it's time to switch? I'm going to ask them if I should expect this same performance going forward or if I should expect it to improve and I'll share that response.
If anyone can share their experience with other proxy providers I will appreciate it. Are they getting hit in the same way as storm proxies? Are they business as usual? Maybe they experienced an impact but not as bad as Storm Proxies? Any recommendations? I appreciate the help!
I don't know of any other great providers at the moment, but its too early to tell. I do not know if it will be the new norm for storm proxies, I hope not.
Im on the lookout for other providers, but nothing yet. If you find one, let us all know.
Thanks so much for sharing that! It's good to know that it's too early to tell. Hopefully things improve. Today I noticed the URL/Sec went up from 2 to 15 (using 1 advanced operator). I can live with 15. Let's see if this stays consistent. I'll probably do a few trials. I'll report back if I do. Thanks!
Well thats definitely good. Worst case, and I hate to say it, if a bunch of people exit them and cancel their service over this, and they have the same amount of proxies, then that will inherantly make them work better for the customers who stay. But hopefully they can get more proxies.
the only real solutions are more proxies or less customers using them. Yes please report back, Id love to know how you get on.
I have reported my result using stormproxies on the other post:
From the result I think the problem is on the proxies. But, about 1/10 proxies from stormproxies still works.
So I switch to luminati.io and they give me 5 dollars to test their service. I choose to test their data center ips. The ip type is “shared (pay per usage)”, and its responding ip pool size is 20000. The result is worse than stormproxies.
But I noticed a weird thing. I use the luminati proxy as system proxy, visit google by browser and put in the url used by scrapebox. I found it works fine. I remember I did the same thing using stormproxies and the result is same. But I can’t figure out why.
Hope the report helps.
Update: I try again and this time luminati works, though I still got many errors. Maybe last time there were many people in the same ip pool with me.
Scrapebox reports luminati proxy leaks my ip, maybe it’s not safe in the long term.
If its a back connect/rotating/reverse proxy provider, then its supposed to show that. So just don't test them, just use them.
Also a video for that type of proxy
