    I just bought 10 private proxies.

    But I'm wondering, should I use these 10 private proxy also for harvesting?
    Because the default sources for public proxies of SB have like 7k proxies and not 1 of them works!!

    Also, how many posts (backlinks) are you all able to do on average with 10 private proxies?
    And do you use them (proxies) all over again for like the whole month for the same process (on the same urls)?

    I just got Scrapebox, and I would like to have some answers on these questions ;D

    Thank you very much!

    very simple rule of scrapebox
    10 private proxies for posting.

    lots of public proxies for harvesting

    do not scrape with your 10 private proxies if
    you do large keyword scrapes, as they can get
    the 3 hrs G ban.

    the default proxies in scrapebox are a freebie not a resource
    you have to find you own either by harvesting public proxies
    from your own urls then test them, or get some1 to do it for
    you.

    there are 2 type of public proxies u can use to scrape with.
    1 - proxies scraped from urls - harvested - then tested - these
    are poor over used by everyone because if i can scrape them
    you can - everyone can = less effective.

    i find the best public scraping proxies to use are port scanned
    public proxies, these are piles of proxies sitting there un used
    they can not be scraped or harvested they musr be got via an
    ip port scanner, when u have them they last 3x longer than a url
    harvested listed of public proxies because less people get them
    or have the tools to even bother.

    a service such as this ive done on bhw for 2 and a half yrs
    with 600 users and 0 refunds . feel free to read. hope it helps
    have a nice day

    Wow, thank you very much for your quick valuable response!

    So, how much private proxy would you use for scraping?

    And I'm wondering, with 10 private proxies, can I post backlinks to the same 10k url list over ander over again?
    If I wanted to provide it as a service to other people?

    And in the future Ill definitly get some of your proxy service :)

    that was the point of my my last post

    So, how much private proxy would you use for scraping?

    you dont.. you use private proxies for posting...
    you dont scrape with them because if you do large
    keyword scrapes they can get banned for upto 3 hrs.

    scrape with public proxies - not the ones from scrapebox
    get your own, find them, or get some1 to do it for you.

    Yes, just vary the email list, comments list, names list. Make sure that you enable the option "randomize comment poster blog list".

    I always use private proxies for every tool that posts/submits.
    It's gives a much better success rate than using public ones.

    I use proxygo's service for all harvesting tasks. Not in only in SB.
    The proxies are of course used by all his members and some will fail to pass Google after a while.
    But even when I'm using the daily list at the end of the day there are enough left to get the job(s) done.

    I've always used SB's public proxies. I test them twice, then use only google passed for scraping. When I'm done scraping, i test those proxies again, weed out the dead ones, and start posting comments. Rather then use the slow poster, I save the failed results and re-run them again using fast poster, save failed again, etc... Yeah, it probably takes longer, but I just let SB run in the background until the next run.

    Any of you getting killed by Scrapebox with your proxies? I spend more time getting proxies than I do actually working on my sites nowadays. The private proxies get hit hard too. Is it just me? What is the rule of thumb for the number of keywords used and approx public proxies for scraping? I get killed just finding out the number of outbound links.

    Theres a post on here somewhere that's doing private proxies for under a buck each.
    If you can afford 50 this is a great idea.

    Using a ratio of 10 proxies per thread seems to work just fine with Google - 5 threads will (depending on your niche and broadband speed) get you up to 100 URL's a second (though typically under 50). Ideal to stick in 5000+ keywords and leave running over night. Wake up to a few million targets.

    Going to bed with public proxies running on your server, and you'll wake up and 9 times out of 10 the whole lot fell over with a google ban or a Yahoo 999 error before you finished your coco and turned the bedside light off and less than 50,000 targets...if your lucky.

    Finding the number of outbound links from a URL isn't anything to do with Google. You won't get a Google ban for doing this - but a shared proxy is a shared proxy. Lucky if they last 20 minutes these days. It's what others are doing with them that will kill them. Chances are 500 other people are doing all sorts of things with the exact same proxies you are using - inclusing Google related stuff. But if you are scanning URL's for outbound links - then unless you are scanning Blogger sites or whatever, then it will have nothing what-so-ever to do with the big G

    not so - people using my port scanned proxies have reported
    url scrapes over night of 3 million, yes some died, but never in
    26 months has any single user mannaged to kill one of my lists.
    url scraped public proxies are crap 100%.
    port scanned public proxies from ip range blocks last 2/3x longer
    than public url scraped proxies, why ? because you cant scrape
    port scanned proxies without a port scanner. and u dont get 600
    sales and 0 refunds in 28 months if it doesnt work. and ty blackhit

    I have about 20 private proxies I use for harvesting, and 30 private and 50 shared on bulletproof hosts I use for posting. I avoid public proxies completely because they're generally blocked by google, usually not on ARIN IPs, and I believe some to be honeypots operated by ma.tt and other entities.

    Have vps and use private proxies along with them ,you will get great results.Using only private proxies or only vps will not fetch good results.

    @Scritty ---->"Using a ratio of 10 proxies per thread seems to work just fine with Google - 5 threads will (depending on your niche and broadband speed) get you up to 100 URL's a second (though typically under 50).

    This could be where I am going wrong. I have been using 30 VP proxies and I mix them up with around 10 Google passed public proxies. But I also run Google harvester set at 221. Set it now to 47. Time out at 30 seconds. I use "multi threaded harverster"

    I have SB on a pretty fast server with Hostamus. I am using two different proxy scrapers. I will try this again. Thanks for your advice. Thanks and rep given.

    One of things I hate seeing is "failed...dead proxy" I don't understand why SB just can't proceed to another proxy and us those ones and delete dead proxies on the fly. This would significantly speed things up and give us better results.

    but not everyone can afford that every month.

    Help me out on this guys... I use 10 private proxies for posting. They have been getting error code 404 as of late. I have been running 5 instances of SB on my DS overnight. I wake up, the proxies are dead. What should I do?

    Hi Proxygo,

    Yes mate - I appreciate that. I' was replying regarding the proxies which 99% of people use (URL scanned proxies) and in relation to the post wondering why his public ones die so quick. No doubt your's are a lot better mate.

    Kudos.
