    What type of connection do you have?

    I have 30mbps download and 7mbps upload.
    My setting is about 300 connections with a timeout of 90.
    I find that increasing my connections anymore gets scrapebox to crash.
    Im on a quadcore with 12gb ram.
    Basically, just open up Resource Monitor and test out a few settings for yourself.


    It is all based on preference. The higher the connections is usually going to give you a lower success/fail rate. I usually shoot for about a 60/40 on success/fails when running multiple instances at once (usually 3-5). I get the best results with 50-90 connections and 20-30 timeout when running 1-2 instances. Its just one of those things that you have to tweak sometimes. Your ram also has a lot to do with it - I have 16gb on the arsenals machine at home and sometimes slow everything down to a crawl when running the scrape box hard.
    Rule of thumb - Higher number of connections, lower success fail. You have to find the sweet spot for your machine and your patience level.
    Also remember - Not all "failed" attempts to post are actually failed attempts. If your running link checker - run all posted entries.

    i use a virtual server and maxed out the scrapebox settings. I run the full 500 commenction per se (up to 2k connections) when harvesting and the full 500 connections while posting without ever having issues. i recommend keeping a good updated proxy list and squeezing optimized lists to ensure you get the most out of them for your keyword range

    I have also need some help for SB setting. I always harvest the proxy list and test them. The proxies are passed I use them. I have a 4MBPS internet connection with 4/5 Wifi systems working. But still I am unable to harvest 100 sites.

    May I get some guidance please.
    Is it required to use my private proxies?
    If yes from where I will get them in cheap price?

    Please answer me.

    Thanks in advance
    Satya

    Get some private proxies and try running maybe 200 connections with that thing. Depending on how many you get you could increase that. What is your computer specs?

    Well, for starters, don't scrape with private proxies.

    Getting a vps for scrapebox isn't the worst idea in the world. VM and VB are nice, but I really don't want scrapebox connections being seen by my ISP.

    You'll be fine with 200+ harvester connections. Lately I've been increasing mine almost to max with 50mbps down connection and 2gb single core and it's all been spiffy.

    Go scrape and run tests and see what works, gosh, laaaaazy (playing with sbox is fun)

    What timeout time do you think I should give it? And I only post with private proxies. I scrape with public proxies
