    Okay, so it's safe to say that I'm overwhelmed when it comes to proxies. I've read a bunch of information including all the stickies on proxies and continue to become even more confused.

    What I seriously could use is some type of basic proxy guide for SEO research. I have a number of questions...


    What makes a good proxy? How does one spot a bad proxy exactly?

    What's VPS? Are they better than normal proxies?

    What's an elite proxy?

    What does scraping proxies mean exactly? When should I scrape proxies? I hear this term when Scrapebox is discussed often, why?

    How good are private proxies, when should one use private proxies?

    How many private proxies would I need if I was to use SEnukeX and Scrapebox?


    I would appreciate the information and insight immensely! Thanks!

    So basically I need...


    A harvester to harvest proxies, a checker to make sure proxies are legit and will work, and then buy some private proxies for posting on high ranked sites.

    Right?

    Could you perhaps recommend a good proxy checker that does the Google test? Or have I misunderstood and since the proxies are posted on websites, they have already passed the Google test?

    Thanks!

    Scrapebox can check proxies. Like the previous poster said, Charon is a good choice. I personally prefer Proxy Madness 4 (another free share here). However, PM4's checker isn't as good so I run it through a program called bleach to test if the proxies are anonymous. Finally I do the last proxy check through Scrapebox since that is what I'm using it for. Basically out of maybe 10,000 harvest proxies only 100-200 are anonymous and Google passed. Even then a good portion have already died through the time it took to test them.

    ScrapeBox can :
    1. Looking for fresh sources.
    2. Harvest proxies.
    3. Test proxies.

    Also, ProxyFire is an amazing tool for filtering proxies and advanced steps (...).

    the average s/box user needs the following. 10 private proxies to
    post with, lost of public proxies to scrape with.
    question - can you scrape with the same 10 private proxies your
    posting with? yes but> heres why u shouldnt.

    Just do a little test and take 100000 keywords, use private 3 proxies
    and start harvesting. After a while SB will come to a grinding halt.
    Google blocked your proxies...Eventually they will clear again but all this
    time you can't continue with your project. So for massive harvesting
    with large keyword lists you will need hundreds of proxies. Not funny
    when 10 private proxies cost you about 25$ a month
    so for scraping, this is why u need Hundreds of freshly scraped public
    proxies every day to bombard Google with requests.

    how can you get public proxies?
    1 - you can harvest them yourself and test them in scrapebox.
    2 - you can get some1 else to do it for you

    What about proxy speed? What is a good speed for a public proxy? Which ones that pass G should I discard? Super slow ones?

    Thanks,

    if your only scraping with them..honestly
    it doesnt matter, the more the better
    remember public proxies are replaceable
    and as your only scraping with them and
    remember scrapebox does it for u
    speed doesnt matter, unless of course u
    wanna save 1 minute a day
