    Hello guys,

    I purchased Scrapebox a few days ago with the intention to Scrape expired Web 2.0 to see if they could help push some of my low comp keywords to page 1 of Google.

    I left the harvester on for around 24 hours and got a list of around 2.8m domains, once trimmed down with duplicates removed I had around 290k domains to put through the Vanity name checker.

    I've tried several times to check this list, but it seems to crash right at the end of the list and I've wasted many hours trying to work out which domains are worth taking.

    Bear in mind I'm new but is there a maximum amount of url's I should be putting through this tool as I can't seem to get it to finish. I've even tried to stop the name checker 50% of the way through and this still crashed.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    it lagged for me several times for bigger amounts but in the end it was alright. you can also use alive check. or split list.

    I left the latest name check for half an hour after stopping at 50% just to see if it would let me export but no joy!
    I'm running the Alive Checker now, so fingers crossed I can export the URL's after this has finished.

    Thanks.

    Right out of curiosity I stopped it at 38000 into the 290k list on the Alive Checker.

    I couldn't see the "Active Threads" in the Vanity Name Checker but in the Alive Checker I could see the Threads drop from 50 - 2 and the final two threads are stuck on active and I can't export while they're active.

    I'm guessing this was the issue with the Vanity Name Checker as well. Is there any ideas you can throw my way to fix this problem?

    Thanks.

    Still on two threads. They are getting stuck for some reason. Damn this is frustrating me.

    Are you sure you are using private proxies?

    I'm using Scraped proxies. Is this going to be the issue then? They seemed to work flawlessly scraping the domains.

    Think that's my last option.
    Could you explain how to break the list up with Notepad++ (I haven't heard of this program before)

    Appreciate it

    You can try EmEditor. It has a function (full working in trial period) to split large files. It worked for me, but it is not now... Maybe because of the trial.

    This is notepad++ and it's free just google it. If you look at the left hand side you will see numbers. Each number would be a url, so let's say u have 100 urls and you want to break it dwn to 1/3. Ok, so 1/3 of 100 is 33. Take the first 33 and copy and paste that to a new tab and it wateva. Do the same for the next 33, so that would be 33-66. Copy and paste 33-66, open a new tab and save. That's how I break my list dwn. Scrapebox has a tendency to freeze up from tyme to tyme.

    Thanks guys,

    I've found an easier free option called "GSplit" if you are interested. You just load the harvester file in and it splits it into however many files you input in the "Pieces" section.

    Let's hope the smaller files gives me some results finally.

    Appreciate the help

    If the file is too large, they don't help.

    Right in the main Scrapebox window, just load all your urls in the grid in the upper right hand quadrant and go to export >> export and split. IT doesn't get easier then that. :)

    Also your threads are being locked. Anything can lock a thread, from security software to skype. So whitelist the addon in all security software, taking care to fully whitelist. As disabling secuirity software only stops new rules from forming, but allows existing rules to still fire.

    Also try closing down any uneeded programs.

    But I did read you were using public proxies I think - public proxies are basically only good for scraping. So you want to use private proxies for this task (and most others) or use no proxies with low connections.

    @loopline not really i use public proxies for anything. i believe its due to the size of list and cpu hardware = different hardware will freeze at different size linklists

    Well my advice would to use "Alive Checker" plugin rather than "Vanity Checker". Vanity checker is very slow. Check everything with alive checker, then run it through majestic or moz or ahrefs or whatever and try to register those few remaining web 2.0s. Much faster and much more reliable.
