    Everyone always says use private proxies when using SB which makes sense but is it becuase:

    its faster?
    private poxies last longer?
    better chance of your post sticking?
    less of a footprint?

    Very curious if it offers a better chance of your comment sticking.

    Public Proxies can be found for FREE!

    Private proxies are often paid, sometimes expensive. Here are the many benefits of a private proxy:

    1) They last longer because they aren't being abused by the whole public, or no one else is using them
    2) They aren't usually google banned, since barely anyone used them, or no one use them.
    3) They are sometimes A LOT FASTER, because....you already know, the same as above.

    For me, it doesn't really matter as I still use mass public proxies that i scan through SB to filter out the bad ones, and walla! Free, yet great public proxies.

    You can also get so called "shared proxies", which are like private proxies (not available in public), but shared between a few people. Definitely better than public and cheaper than private ones.

    Usually proxies shared between 2-5 people are called semi-dedicated. Shared implies the same thing as public, usually. Don't assume if someone is calling them shared proxies that they're semi-dedi and not being shared between 1,000+ people per hour.

    OP, all the questions in your post are answered with: Yes.

    Scraping is much faster with private proxies, so watch your connections/bandwidth.

    As many have already stated, public proxies are usually found in many sites, and are used by many people. They tend to be much slower and unreliable compared to private proxies.

    Just get a private one.

    Very detailed response, I had been wondering the exact benefits of private proxies as well...now I know!

    Still going to stick with public for the time being because frankly I haven't had any problems.

    Public proxies are for scraping, private proxies are for posting!
