    Not a laughing stock. 2 MBPs is a decent connection. Set maximum 10 connections of fast poster in scrapebox,good to go. Is it a broadband connection or something. Scrapebox takes lots of bandwidth, If you have download upload restrictions from your ISP then don't use it from your home connection. Buy a VPs if you are using broadband.

    Depends upon the list. I have a 4MBPs connection and whenever i do scrapebox blast it takes around 4 hrs with 8-10 fast poster connections.

    i see. ill try making a good list with the free proxies first and will check what improvements i make with the private proxies. thanks. :)

    ps. the connections u mentioned, is there a formula to measure the correct amount? or is it from a trial and error basis?

    You would be better buying a decent AA list to save alot of time.

    Always use private proxies. You won't get good success rate with free proxies. I have adjusted my fast poster connection according to my bandwidth limites. If i go beyond that then success rate will be lower.

    Not if you consider time wasted finding them.

    10 private proxies are perfect for just starting out. You should focus on buying a decent VPS as you scale up and earn some money, as 2Mbps will be holding you back from larger posting jobs.

    Not if you consider time wasted finding them.If you want to do your own get some free AA lists in the downloads area,run them through the pr checker and get the pr1 or higher sites and scrape comments then use as keywords this approach tends to get the higher pr pages because alot of people who know what they are doing only post on pr1 or higher pages,good luck.

    hes right , stick rate success with public proxies is rubbish because most of
    them are on the spam lists.
    10 private proxies is the way to go for posting, higher success rate.
    i only even scrape with public proxies and by that i mean port scanned
    public proxies mainly because they cant be url harvested and have less
    people using them so for scraping there better than url scraped public
    proxies

    I believe you are talking about my Scrapebox optimization guide? XD I left you a response to your question on the thread here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ize-your-network-scrapebox-3.html#post4269756

    This is *NOT* true. You can certainly harvest Google/Yahoo/Bing with private proxies. The key is setting the right amount of connections per proxy (The Key: Set 1 connection per 2 private proxies; example; if you have 20 private proxies, you can set 4 connections) While it may not seem like many connections, the difference between 4 and 15 or 30 connections is not that different, as Scrapebox's built-in harvester is not very good. The big difference is being able to harvest Google 24/7 without having to constantly stop and add new proxies as they are burnt out. IF your proxies are banned, simply wait an hour or two and they will be unblocked (lower your connections and try again).
