    why do people say to harvest with private proxies? Ive just bought 10 proxies set my connections to as low as 1 and ive only scraped 50,000 urls and half are blocked already.

    This is a catch 22! I use public ones and there all crap,i buy private ones and they all get blocked. I hear of other people saying they scraped a million results the most ive got up to is 100,000 this is really annoying!

    I have no issues using private proxies for scraping. Are your proxies truly private, or shared?

    I scrape behind VPN with auto-ipchange every 30 seconds. Every 30 seconds I am on Romania, Italia, New York, Chicago, China. LOL My success rate has gone up.

    Harvesting/Scrapping is most often a word to reference the collection of links where you can post your links using a a tool like scrapebox.

    You use proxies to hide your IP so Google, yahoo, Bing don't ban your IP, so you don't leave a footprint behind. Black Hating 101 - Never leave a footprint, always mask your IP.
