Why would I need other 3rd party proxies software/service to use ScrapeBox?

    Now here's a question that has been bothering and confusing me, as I'm not familiar with ScrapeBox...

    There is a lot of talk about buying private proxy from sites like YourPrivateProxy and SquidProxies or ProxyBonanza to use ScrapeBox....but apparently ScrapeBox has a built-in function/feature to be able to get proxies for you to be used.

    So then would you need to get these 3rd proxies service/software when ScrapeBox can already get proxy to use for its ownself or other software like LinkRobot/AMR/Senuke?

    Public proxys that you can download within scrapebox are not suited for much more then searchengine activities. All other operations makes results go terribly bad.

    Would you specify what you mean by "searchengine activities"?

    Scrapeing results, Tracking down PR would be 2 things. If you were to post comments or trackbacks or check links and such you would need a more reliable transmission such as using private proxys.

    Buying private lists is cheap as hell, there's no reason to try to use free crap, it just causes pain.

    You have 2 choices:

    1) Scrape the proxies from SB tool, which will take a long time to get the working proxies.
    2) Using public proxies provided by approved BHW proxy providers here (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f112-proxies-sale/) will allow you to start scraping/harvesting after 1 minute of downloading the tested proxies.

    If time is valuable to you, you'll be smart enough to select #2.

    Honestly, I'm quite new to scraping. Not sure what it's supposed to be all about.

    Scrapebox's proxy feature is s o o o o o o slow and it's a resource hog compared to other stand-alone proxy scrapers.

    You scrape URLs for a number of reasons but with scrapebox you'll start by scraping URLs where you can post comments with links back to your site, like wordpress blogs.

    So in other words...

    Those generic comments I've been receiving on my blog marked as spams by askismet, are the works of scraping.

    That's what scraping all about mass commenting on blogs?

    So that's what ScrapeBox is all about and main usage?

    Scrapebox is called the "swiss army knife" of SEO tools because it has many many uses. Blog commenting is one of them. Yes, those spam comments are probably from scrapebox.

    Here is a list of add-ons to give you a taste of what it can do:
