    Guys,

    Can a experienced SB user help me with the following question (oh should explain i have never used SB) ....


    1) when you run SB you have the option to use proxys! If you enter 10 proxies how does SB decide which one to use when posting? Does it randomly select one? and then does it use the same one until the whole blast is complete? or does it swap from one proxy to another everytime it posts?

    2) Does anyone use SB behind 'Platinum Hide IP' - for those who dont know what Platinum Hide IP is its a software that changes your ip everytime you launch ie (browser)

    Thanks inadvance.

    1) Scrapebox randomly one proxy from the 10 proxies you provide everytime it tries to post a comment

    2) Nope, I use private proxies

    thanks EXtrahand .... what would happen if i just had 1 proxy in SB and tried to blast 5k comments? would the proxy get banned resulting in my 5k comments not displaying?
    Or would it only be banned if my comments got reported?

    If you're using just one proxy, it may get banned if akismet(that most blogs probably use) has a spammer IP ban feature, which I think it has. But not before it has already posted some comments.

    Akismet will surely ban that proxy but I've heard people saying that it's okay to use only 1 proxy to blast if your list is 100% auto approve.

    All you can really do is test to get a feel for it. It does depend on your whether you are hitting AA blogs or not. Akismet will see that you are using 1 IP and ban you if the blog owners have akismet enabled. If you want to know if an IP is banned, just browse to a blog through the proxy that has akismet enabled and try to do a manual comment. If the IP is banned in akismet you will get a blank page when you submit the comment.

    thanks for the advice.

    what rules do akismet apply to why they ban a ip?
    Do they ban a ip if the are thousands of posts from the same ip? Thousands of posts within a short time period? reports from blog owners?

    No list is 100% AA. Sites are dynamic so you rarely get the same results twice even running the same list.

    Just do a search on the forum or on google for "scrapebox footprints" and that will yield way more than you could probably use.
