    I just want to say first that I'm new to SB (Not Auto Blog Commenting) and I'm not talking about proxies for posting (which are private proxies). I'm talking about free proxies for harvesting, PR checking, etc.

    When I run the proxy harvester (checking all 7 sources) it usually gets around 3000 proxies, 40 of which Google pass, and usually 0 of which IP pass. As of yesterday the first 2 proxies sources aren't working at all (404).

    So I'm wondering where are you getting free proxies that both Google and IP pass for the "heavy lifting" type operations?

    Thank you!

    The proxies from all the 7 sources just work fine for me! I always get left with about 300 Good Proxies. :D Also, I've also used a proxy service by BHW member, surffc.com and its good for scraping and other tasks. I canceled the subscription recently because those 7 sources are working great for me! :D If can't get them to work, try surffc. Its pretty cheap too. :)

    The proxies from SB are indeed great, but they die too quickly for me. It seems that the ones I get from other sources last a lot longer, which is pretty logical ;)

    Google: Free proxies online.
    Find places with huge list which update every once in a while.
    Add them to external sources in SB.

    Btw: When i test only the internal proxy sources I always get like 100 proxies which pass both tests.

    Thanks for your replies! The most I've ever gotten at once is 40 or so. What do you guys have your timeout set to? And I was thinking of adding some external proxy sources but most the sites I've found / used in the past are forums that have all the lists on their own page (which changes) I'll have to keep looking for more sites.

    i usually get around 120-200 that pass both tests using the scrapebox proxy harvester, and i have it on the default settings.. but im also on a screaming fast fiberoptic connection so that may have something to do with it

    Just an update, I added a few external proxy sources and tested, came out with

    3900 proxies - Google Passed 20 - IP test Passed 0

    I'm using the new harvester with the timeout set to 30. Can anyone please help?

    Thank you!

    search for proxy forums.

    then use charon to filter out the good proxies from the bad ones.

    Indeed great proxy harvester up to more than 10K proxy. But the problem is the cleanup, takes time. Sometimes, I have to do it before sleeping when doing cleanup of proxy.

    Just look here, portalweb has also membership that offers anonymous proxy. You can search here in BHT, there are lots offering this service with an affordable price.

    Plus I don't know why SB rechecks all the FAILED proxies?! After they fail, stop checking them for IP and speed!

    i was thinking the same thing but SweetFunny is constantly churning out updates. One i was expecting is to auto remove duplicate proxies too. right now im having a problem with it reposting to the same blogs

    The proxy from the sources give me about 20% success rate which is decent since I am doing it at fast rate. I get around 2% auto approve which shows they are not so useless afterall.

    You sure that's right? Went to anonymous dot net and it's some generic traffic holding (expired domain) site.
