    When harvesting - what does that "Blacklisted" column mean in SB?

    i mean it can't mean my proxies are blacklisted bc that number exceeds the number of proxies I am using.

    I always that it meant the proxies are blacklisted because they're scraping too much.

    when your scraping, and it shows that table with blacklisted?

    thats when you encounter a blacklisted url. Atleast thats what ive been told.

    Like when you update the blacklist, thats urls.
    Maybe someone else know for sure?

    like i said - i don't think it can be proxies because that blacklisted number goes a lot higher than the number of proxies i am using - and everything still runs fine.

    Maybe it means that the URL you scraped is in your Scrapebox black list - the list of URLs where you don't want to spam comments that Scrapebox have and that, if you notice, get updated from time to time when you turn Scrapebox on (if not everytime you open it, I don't remember).

    Let's say you scrape a inner page of Matt Cutts personal blog. His blog is in the Blacklist (you want to spam Google's Spam Team Chief? I guess you don't) so it's quite reasonable every inner page of it should be blacklisted.

    My .02 cents.
