    Anyone having issues with Storm Proxies lately?

    I've been getting 503 gateway issues a lot of late. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing?

    Sweet. I have definitely set up Storm Proxies and Scrapebox as shown via Loopline's latest video.

    Just to set the record straight, I've not been having issues with this set up until recently. It used to work a lot better than it is now, for some reason. It looks like a lot of their scraping proxies are blocked (503 ban) by Google.

    The best way to solve any issue is to contact support via support page. There is a link contact us at every page of our storm proxies site. Simply click on it and use contact form to contact support.

    I did contact them - twice. And both times, they just told me to go watch Loopline's videos. Not very helpful at all. I'm seriously considering cancelling my membership with them at this point because of the lack of support.

    I have a feeling they're having some server issues. Spoke to the guys at Scrapebox and showed them my error messages. They were thinking it's probably server issues or banned IPs. Hmm..

    I'm from Storm Proxies and I can confirm that there are no server issues on our side.
    Only way to resolve issue is by contacting our support team.

    hi Deki33, I don't mean any disrespect but:

    "I did contact them (support) - twice. And both times, they just told me to go watch Loopline's videos. Not very helpful at all. I'm seriously considering cancelling my membership with them at this point because of the lack of support."

    I got that, but as I said before "Only way to resolve issue is by contacting our support team." - I don't think you will solve anything by replying here in this thread. I can't help you much as I'm not technical person.
    Simply write message to our support - "I have contacted you 2 times and you told me to watch video...and I did...and I have posted at BHW forum but that also didn't solve my problem...bla, bla.." - try something like that :)

    ty dekki for replying , but u must agree, if a buyer contacts support for a possible
    issue with the proxies, and the proxy support twice offers no support but to say watch
    a video by a bhw member isnt them offering any support at all .
    thats 0 help and there relying on a video by mat loopline of bhw to cover
    there non support .

    The thing is as well, is that I have set it up before in the same way Matt, shows and it worked fine. It's just that lately, I'd get zero results about 80-90% of the time. This is probably pointing to the fact that the backconnect proxies are rotating and a lot of them are banned. Their IP pool is probably getting used up is what I am guessing. I ran detailed harvester, and I can see Scrapebox trying and trying different proxies - I have set max retries (which is 10) as well.

    and also take into account if there rotating to others and back to you as well.
    is the zero result on 1 search engine or all. if its just google prob banned.

    but theres 1 way to check, do a scrape on yahoo bing only if u get results
    then try a google search only, if u get nothing there blocked.
