Scrapebox - VPN vs Private Proxies?

Discussion in 'Products & Tools' started by sachin410, Feb 4, 2011.

    Public proxies don't work well with scrapebox.

    I tried a free VPN and it had a much better success rate, but I quickly hit my bandwidth limit.

    Now I am thinking of buying a VPN service, but some users say private proxies work well with scrapebox too.

    Which is a better choice for scrapebox - private proxies or a VPN?

    I use private proxies. I haven't got any problems with that.

    Just noticed that getvpn .net offers free VPN accounts. They have a limit of usage just for 1 hour but I registered 3 accounts already and was not banned in any way yet. A good point they say that this one hour can be devided into several times if you stay connected less than 60 minutes. They have just 1 USA IP ...

    Alother limit is that you can not browse some secured sites (no https or ssl connections) but still if you require any fresh proxy - a nice choice.

    Anyone used them already? It looks like they started not long time ago but I hope they will stay alive for a while:confused:

    It is automated and can be used for tasks like finding blogs to comment on, automated blog commenting, checking backlinks, pinging to feed services etc.

    I think that paid VPN Service is the best fit for you,because its more secure and fast, I personally use Change-mon-ip.com. Their connections are fast and stable, you will get helpful support for cheap prices

    Proxy is a server that acts as a connecting location and allows network service to connect to other services in the network cloud. It could be responsible for processing your request to connect to a file, webpage or any other service while the proxy server itself could be located anywhere in the world.
    But a VPN network creates a secure connection over a public network such as a public telecommunication infrastructure, that is, the internet being one of the most important requirements of our daily lives. The encryption for such a connection is provided by using algorithms for having security and the establishment of a reliable connection which is not possible in the case of a proxy server.
    I prefer VPN Software as compare to proxies.

    I have used YPP for quite some time. They answer questions and provide good support should you have any issues with the proxies. I use 60 proxies, however, I used them for quite more than just scraping for link building opp. 10 proxies are just fine for scraping, however, use with care b/c you can get the proxies banned...Best thing I can say is not to abuse the proxies. The more you have, the faster you can work.

    proxy is not a safe option to go with...though i will recommend you VPN as it is safe and sound also allow you to access all the blocked websites around the world. I have been using VPN from last 6 months and never faced any issues with the bandwidth. Go for the paid one it will give you unlimited bandwidth. I am using StrongVPN. But you can go with HMA as it cheaper one...

    If any of you guys need some private US proxies, I have almost 300 available right now. They work great with scrapebox.

    :D
