    Is any of these packages is enough for scraping Google, not with scrapebox though, I will be scraping just competition numbers ? Anyone has experience with these packages/sites, which one you would recommend?

    proxybonanza.com - shared proxies package- $32,99/mo 128 proxies
    Code:
    http://proxybonanza.com/signup/shared_proxy
    packetflip.com - exclusive proxies - $50/mo - 25 proxies
    Code:
    http://www.packetflip.com/dedicated-proxies.html
    yourprivateproxy.com - so called "ScrapeBox proxies" - $29,97 - 10 proxies
    Code:
    http://www.yourprivateproxy.com/buy-proxies-for-scrapebox/
    Scraping is multithreaded, the program is for client, so I need this to be really reliable and not too costly...

    I have used
    Code:
    http://theproxymart.com/
    5 months and shared proxies for scraping were great you don't need expensive private proxies I used 500 shared proxies for $240/month but if you don't need scrape much maybe even 100 proxies will be enough.

    I found a topic and it said that we still use proxybonanaza for scrape URLs, but with 15k keywords, can I use only 5 private IPs ?

    What I did is to buy a VPS at a company called PhotonVPS , buy a bunch of additional IP's @ $1/month/IP, and setup my own proxy server with a software called CCProxy (on Windows Server OS). Works like a charm, and I got a full control over my proxies, and no limits in usage.

    The problem with some of these public companies such as 'hidemyass' (and please don't take any offense rhino2020) is that often more times then not more then one user is scraping Google. This results in IP's being banned quicker. Google scraping and the proxy game will forever be ongoing.

    Depending on the nature of your proxy source you may end up with Google China. This may be irrelevant where your scraping is concerned as long as it's still Google, however, some users require an English version of the program. While this is technically still 'Google' these results are quite different then what you would expect from Google USA.

    Right, but if a user here were to subscribe to let's say: $20 - 10 private proxies, then wouldn't your proxies be flagged by Google's Search Engine after 'x' amount of queries?

    the basic rule of scrapebox is never to scrape with private proxies
    due to hi keyword searches resulting in them getting flagged for
    upto 3-4 hrs this is only reason using private proxies or shared private
    proxies is a bad idea for url scraping with . because most providers arnt
    going to want to replace them if u the buyer get them flagged constantly
    for hi keyword searches

    this is also the reason why savy scrapebox users use public proxies
    to url scrape by either finding there own or paying some1 to do it
    for you as publi proxies purley for scraping can be replaced refreshed
    several times a day.

    Proxygo has a good point, you run the risk of getting a temp ban placed on the proxes if you scarpe a lot.

    For me I have 10 dedicated private proxies from BuyProxies and I've only once had a temp ban place. I scraped like 3 millions sites though. For some people SB is running 24/7, for me I run it a couple days of the week. So it comes down to how heavy you use the program.

    I recommend you checkout some of my reviews I have done featuring a lot of the top BHW providers and a few of the main stream names:

    i noticed all your reviews refer to private proxie
    sellers..none of them refer to users providing
    public proxies for harvesting/scraping like i have
    done here for 2 yrs with 430 sign ups 0 refunds
    even the owner of scrapebox has me listed on there
    website under > Also Proxy Central < me
    http://www.scrapebox.com/proxy

    your site needs to cater to private and public
    proxie sellers or its impartial > no offence

    No offense taken, it's a valid point. I have chosen the side of private over public because I personally have not had good experiences with the public ones, bans, blocks and timeouts. I don't have the time or patience to continually be testing IP's and weeding out the bad ones after each run. Like I mentioned I don't run SB 24/7 but when I do run it I have it run uninterrupted for 3-4 days at a time. I can't run the risk of having issues with my proxies in the middle of my campaigns.

    That's why in my last post I sided with you but also advice buyers to look at how they plan on using the program.

    I know that some people use the public ones for scraping then the private for posting but I personally choose to use my private for everything and am satisfied with the results.

    Even with all that said I will take a closer look at the public providers and see if I should do a review of their services.

    Disclaimer: anyone reading this I have NOT used Proxygo and so I'm not saying anything about his service. I think his stats speak volumes about his service.

    I bought Proxy Goblin - it harvest fresh proxies 24/7 for you, and you can set it to harvest proxies that is "Google friendly". So no need to buy private proxies anymore! :)

    For anyone using public or private proxies on their own I wrote an article on the pros and cons of doing this.

    Hopefully you have some programming experience. It can be done but because Google hates being scraped and is constantly updating their means of detection it can be difficult.
