    im am scraping my own gsa list and i use some footprints and the question i ask my self is how many keywords should i merge with the footprints?

    i used 50 footprints and 3 million keywords but the scrapebox crashes...
    how many keywords should i use 1000 10000 or 100k?

    how much can scrapebox handle

    Depends on your computer resources.. What i can suggest, is reducing 1 zero every time. till you will find the best number for your computer.

    3 million keywords times 50 footprints = 150 million searches. Yeah that's not going to happen :) Even 1000 keywords is 50k searches which can potentially get dozens of results each = a ton of URLs. I don't use SB much these days but I know a year ago or so it had a 1 million URL limit, so scraping more than that was useless. Maybe they've improved that part, if so you can go higher, otherwise try and aim for less than 1 million URLs scraped.

    It really depends on ur Pc or server...on my old laptop it takes no more than 3k keywords with 50 footprints to crash it. My advice for u is: if u are looking for somethings specific go for 1 footprint at the time.

    Split them apart in to groups of 50-75,00 or close to that and you will find a much better success rate. When you max out your resources ScrapeBox can not complete the command. So, lower the requests or upgrade your computer :)

    use 1-3 good footprints and merge it with a massive keyword list. Don't pass 1m mark when combining keywords and footprints, best is to do 500k at a time. Been there done that.

    You sound like you need Hrefer.

    Switch to hrefer if you want to do real scraping.
