    Hello, I'm now using scrapebox for finding banned tumblr blogs, but when I run harvester it grabs so much domains I do not want and it is really pain in the ass. I do not know what I'm doing wrong. I use this footprint ( -site:"www.tumblr.com" inurl:tumblr.com ) and as keywords right now list of 30K most used english words.
    Also have another problems with scrapebox lately, very often after scraping few dozens of thousands links I'm not able to stop the harvester and it just runs forever. Also google very fast shows 503 error, I guess it is because of proxies. What are the best kind of proxies or proxy service when you want to use scrapebox for harvesting lots of links from google every day? Thanks a lot for answers all you scrapebox experts :)

    Your footprint is wrong. If you use the footprint -site:www.tumblr.com, you will get only results from tumblr main site. You should use site:tumblr.com. The 3 Ws make a big difference. Try it with both on google and you will see if you use site:www.tumblr.com, you won't get any tumblr blog,only results for the main tumblr site. But if you use site:tumblr.com then you will get a lot of tumblr blog.
    Hope it helps :)
