    Is there any problem of using scrapebox without proxy? My ISP doesn't care if I send some spam comments.

    Your ISP would care after receiving bunch of spam reports to their network, also your IP will get banned on Google if you would do url harvesting.

    You will not get far if you need to scrape a lot. If you don't have the money to buy proxies, at least try using some public proxies.

    For posting you can go ahead if you are saying that your ISP doesn't care about spam reports.
    For harvesting, your IP will be temp banned by google really fast.

    dynamic ip from an isp still comes from there own pool of ips
    if u spam users to death its not hard for your isp to check who last had
    an ip.......and you will get blocked by google and possibly terminated
    by your isp....not worth it

    "Technically" if what your saying is 100% true then it "probably" doesn't matter. If your only sending comments/tracks/guestbook posts/image comments/BBS etc... from scrapebox, and your ISP truely does not care if they get hundreds or even thousands or tens of thousands of spam complaints, then you would not need to use a proxy. However, Ive never heard of an ISP that simply doesn't care. If they have that bad of a reputation, it could cause other issues for them.

    So I would recommend a proxy. The alternative if you are wrong is, your ISP will cancel you. With no internet its hard to really do anything. :)

    As for anything related to the engines, if you use only 1 connection, with no delay, your ip would be blocked every few mins. So if you don't mind stopping to change your IP every 3 mins, then its ok. If you have this kind of time to waste, you can probably make more money doing other things. My time is my absolute most valuable asset.

    But you were very vauge in your question. For example, scrapebox can do hundreds of things, and you were quite general, so if you plan on using the WHOIS scraper for instance, its a lot different then if you are using the email grabber, scraping, posting, using the alexa rank addon or the moz backlink checker. Each will need its own understanding and approach.

    So you would need to be Excessively more explicit on the details of how you specifically plan to use scrapebox, else the best anyone can give is a genera answer that really isn't as accurate as it could be.

    The issue isn't your ISP or google.... it's Akismet (for spamming wordpress blogs anyway).... eventually all the ips in your dynamic ip pool will be blacklisted by Akismet and all your comments will be ghosted.

    I can't do just that! Anyone else has the same issue? The Build-in Proxy harvester module always giving a timeout error! I'm so frustrated...

    currently i am using scrapebox for small data scrapes couple of times every other day. The settings are turned right down though, and it takes a while to get all the results. No problems with google banning my ip, or my isp either.

    yes it does matter to use proxy because there are chances of getting your IP banned without it

    Actually Akismet is not an issue at all, IMHO. The reason being is, that akismet can ban you with as little as 3-5 comments reported, and I have placed legitimate manual comments before and got banned by akismet for it.

    If you are posting at least 100 links per week, you WILL get banned by akismet, plain and simple. All of your proxy IPs will almost always be akismet banned, but you have to consider akismet is installed on less then 25% of all blogs (If I recall that figure correctly) so your after what you can get and with wordpress alone being MASSIVE, 10%+ of all new sites that come online daily are wordpress. So there is more fish in the sea to harvest then you could possible even keep up with, so akismet is a non issue.

    Plus you have to figure, akismet is on more moderated blogs then is auto approve. Assuming your mass spamming, you will fall thru moderation sometimes, I have seen it happen on mine, but your probably largely after auto approve if your posting. If a owner of an auto approve blog thought spam was such an issue to turn on akismet, then they wouldn't have turned on auto approve. Auto approve is turned on, probably a lot of times by the people who either have no idea, or who are just not wanting to hassle with it, which is not the type of people that are going to take the effort to use akismet.

    So mass spam is going after low hanging fruit, moderators that can't tell spam from non spam, comments that fall on the right post at the right time or auto approve. If your going after quality moderated blogs, then your going to first be filtering the list a lot and then probably manually commenting on the best ones.

    My 2 cents.


    It works fine for me. If its timing out its likely that you either have the connections turned up higher then your bandwidth can handle, so try turning the connections way down, perhaps to 1 or 5. OR its being blocked by security software, in which case you need to set scrapebox as trusted/allowed in all security software. Note that disabling security software does nothing, it only stops new rules from being created. You have to actually delete existing rules and then set scrapebox as trusted/allowed, else those old existing rules will still fire even when software is disabled.

    In any case it's spam activity and the problem isn't your ISP but the fact that you can have problems using your IP for services like Google! I'm using 10 elite proxies and are working really fast, you don't have to spend a lot of money to have this! Or you can use public proxies, not good as private, but you can scrape 20K/30K rsults as well!

    The problem isn't with your ISP the problem is with google and some antispam plugins. Maybe you have dinamic IP, if is that the case go haead but you will have to reset your rotuer too many times. Your best option is buy some proxies.
