    Both. With vps you can run sb 24/7 and private proxies minimize your chances of your ip getting banned, they're also fast compared to public.

    Use a vps and scrape yahoo (Dont need proxys) and 10 proxys is not enough to do a scrape.

    If you dont have a good internet connection speed like 10Mbps or higher and you need to post comments, articles, blogs than a vps with 10 proxies is best solution.

    If you have a good internet connection than go for 10 private proxies only.

    For harvesting data from google and other search engine, my advise do scrape public proxies only otherwise your private proxies will also get banned :), so never scrape data with private proxies and always do postings with private proxies to get best results

    The proxies because even if you have a vps with shitty proxies it will go fast but your success rate will suck in scrapebox are the MOST important factor period.

    Huh? Don't need proxies, then you say 10 proxies is not enough?

    I'm confused....

    Why wouldn't you need proxies and how many do you think you need?

    I would go with VPS. I use both private and public proxies and the public worl just as well because I can get 30 times as many if I want.

    SB eats up too much bandwidth at my house, and my ISP (comcast) has monthly limits, so the VPS takes care of that.

    PLUS, the VPS I use (off here) has SENUKE X installed as well :)

    i use 11 - 12 private proxies and my success rate is decent. Speeds are also not bad. i say go with at least 10 private proxies. it is the easiest solution while still being successful.

    Wondering, how much life span do you asume those 10 proxies will have until you have to buy new ones?

    thanks

    You dont really need a vps for SB unless your internet connection is really s%^&t.
    Save your money and just get 10 private proxies for posting only, and always use public proxies for scraping urls.

    Also, I hope I'm not hijacking the thread, but are VPNs needed with Scrapebox especially if they're ran at your home ? Proxies don't fail and still post and release your IP, right? :eek:
