    Hello guys,

    I have been here for quite a few months and love BHW. I got scarpebox just before four months and everything was going fine for me but today am having a weird problem. I am unable to scrape blogs using the Yahoo search option (i get an 404 error - with good proxies and also my home connection)) , whereas everything works fine when I try to search the keywords from my default Firefox browser. Is this issue happening only for me or others are having the same issue?

    Please guys do check and solve my query. :(

    N.B.: Guys I have been using Yahoo as my main scraping source.pls do help me.

    Thanks
    omni

    It is happening the same to me since today. Pretty weird . I use private proxies.

    Its because your proxies, or connection has been banned by Yahoo for too many requests. For whatever reason Yahoo has been getting quicker with banning proxies/IPs lately.

    Be sure that you are using full anonymous proxies that are fresh, and or harvest new ones. Sometimes you have to retry several times to get a Yahoo IP that isn't blocked.

    Same here brah. Google slowed down too, probably some of my private proxies got banned. Too lazy to get shitty public ones.

    I have the same problem. None of my private proxies are working. But if I take one of the proxies and use it in Firefox I can still search through Firefox just fine. I also noticed some other tools that connect to Yahoo are failing both with and without proxies.
