    I remember reading a thread where people are having issues with it and I too am having problems with it. Any addon I try isn't working and I keep getting 407 errors.

    I have 200 private proxies and the proxy tester is showing them all live and well.

    Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Yea I can completely relate... I'm having the same issues. Open a ticket with Scrapebox support and see what they say. I think they might be working on a new update.

    yep, check the updates. Scrapebox tends to get errors every now and then when they update it, just be patient and contacting support at those time wont do much cuz thousands of people panic and send tickets. Just google when it happens and most likely you will find forums with discussions about it and its updates

    @skripel... actually contacting support will make them realize that its more than just one person having the issue thus have the developers fix it faster. I'm not saying bombard them with emails, but just one email letting them know of the issue would be fine.

    It's dead for me, too. All proxies harvested from unique sources using Forum Proxy Leecher are 302 banned and I don't want to waste my premium proxies on it because they will all be banned too in under 30 mins. It seems Google is searching the public proxy sources and auto mass banning them.

    RIP ScrapeBox. :(

    Same for me too- 90% of "google passed" public proxies are 302 banned at the moment, although still able to do multiple threaded harvesting. Others should send 1 email to SB support so they know it's a global issue.

    Google has recently change the game. They are now quickly killing of proxies. I talked with SweetFunny about it and they said they are feverishly working on it, but there is no rhyme or reason to how google is deciding to kill a proxy. For instnace, if you test proxies and keep the google passed and then retest, a TON of them will be dead, this didn't used to be the case, only some would be dead on a 2nd pass. This is just google trying to compensate for the huge expense all us SEO people keep costing them by scraping their results. :)

    As for the 407 on an addon, thats an authentication error. That is being kicked by the proxy its self. Are you trying to install an addon when you get that error or are you trying to use an addon? Which addon(s) as an example? Private proxies?

    Not for me... I had about 600 Google pass proxies from which only about 2-3 proxies were able to harvest basic keywords (no advanced operators). I checked again after getting all the 302 errors and about 560 of them were still Google pass.. how's that possible?

    Mine appears to work as it should but I only use Scrapebox for the addon, Link Extractor.

    Guys, just a quick question here. What if you just cahnge your WAN Public IP port everytime you do a harvest or scrape? Will that work just as well? Please any IT guys feel free to CHIME in if your a regular user of this software. Thank you.

    I doubt changing the port on the WAN public ip will do anything since it will still show as the same public IP. The port used and the unique ip used are two different things. Changing the port does not change your footprint, that I am aware of.
