    I see that a few people have problems with scrapebox crashing lately, i dont have that problem it works perfect. EXCEPT after todays update i can't scrape google anymore ? I tried with no proxy, public proxies, private proxies. All tested in the proxy checker and accessed google fine. But when trying to scrape google it makes the connections and waits after some time i get "harvedsted 0 urls/s" or whatever the message is. Does anybody have this problem to ?

    Just a quick question weren't you able to scrape google at all?

    Because I have also had trouble with finding all those results I am sure there is higher.

    So I only checked google this time and I choose wordpress and then the keyword dog training.

    only 600 something results before it was finished harvesting:p

    It still scrapes some results. For example, I just used the keyword "obama" and chose Wordpress footprint. It only came up with 199 results.

    If you use modifiers such as intitle or inurl it will not bring up any results.

    Earlier today I was told that they are looking into the possible causes for this issue.

    Update.

    The problem with Google is with proxies, not with Scrapebox itself.

    After having the same problem as other people, I figured I would try to scrape results with my own private proxies. Google returned correct results for search string using inurl operator.

    So if you are still having problems scraping results from Google, use one of your private proxies to test it out.

    I would be curious to hear if using private proxies would solve the OP's issue. Everyone says you get much much better results using private proxies... but they are a bit pricey when you aren't making 1000's a month.

    Well generally people use public proxies to scrape the results, then use private proxies for comment posting only.

    The problem is indeed with public proxies. See my post above yours. :)

    Yahoo doesn't seem to work at all either. What's up? just getting 503 - Service Unavailable. :f This with intitle, inurl etc.

    hi. The thing is that you can choose yourself how many results you want to get for each and every word you wana do the search.try to add more keywords to your search and modify that number

    Check your settings and/or proxies before you say the program is not working :p

    Dosent anybody read what i wrote ? Before posting here i tried with

    No proxies
    Private proxies
    Public proxies

    All returned nothing in the google search (and i around 50 to 100 keywords everytime)

    I downgraded the scrapebox version as sweetfunny told how to, and everything worked perfect again. So i guess it could only have been something with scrapebox that screwed up. Everything is working perfect after i downgraded
