Why is Google blocking my IP's and Scrapebox Dropping to 0 Connections?

    So I just bought a new dedicated server and whenever I run scrapebox, I get IP BLOCKED for all my IP's and the connections drop to 0.

    I've tried it with multiple freshly checked proxy lists. The proxies I'm using have all come back as Google Passed when checked with Scrapebox.

    I've tried disabling Windows Firewall with no luck. Everything I've read says its my proxies but I don't see how it could be.

    google block your ip/proxies automically after few searches to avoid any automated query.

    you need lot of private proxies to avoid this (more than 30+)

    I've tried it with over 200 google verified proxies, with connections on 10 or less.... any ideas?

    Please paste your custom footprint that you are using- this is most likely the issue.

    If you just want to know if it is a problem with scrapebox / your server you could browse to google through one of the "good" proxies and see if it lets you do a query.

    Keep scraping for proxies, keep testing proxies.

    This problem has been going on since the new harvester was released 3 updates ago (which all occurred in like 2 days).

    Problem you're going through happens to me too unless I throw in a huge list of every proxy that google passed, or use proxies tested in an older version. (Though, very recently the rates of scraping have been improving. I upped the connection and scraped a ton overnight, so there's a silver lining to this cloud)

    Try scraping a few times too, you never know when the connections will suddenly go through.

    The proxies seem to work fine, tried it manually.

    Hmm is there anyway to revert to the older version? Every time I try it doesn't work, never had a good harvest session and I've tried 20+ times.

    If anyone else runs into this problem, it was my footprint. Apparently the inurl operator was messing up the results.

    go to google. download 4-5 scrapers (for proxies)... scrape forums and sites with those tools and get tons of proxies. after that check them in scrapebox. you should end up with many public proxies.
