Private Proxies vs Public Proxies vs No Proxies for Scrapebox posting
I have many times heard people questioning or arguing about what is the best option to use when posting comments with scrapebox.
Should you use Public proxies with higher connections?
Should you use Private proxies with lower connections?
Should you use no proxies?
Here is what I did. I took a list I scraped of 650K urls and ran the same list on 3 different isntance of scrapebox, all on the same server, all side by side at the same time. I did randomize the 650K list for each instance separately, so that I wouldn’t be hitting the same urls at the same time in each instance.
Public Proxies – 350 connections
I got 600 public proxies that were all either medium or fast speed in scrapebox, when tested with the proxy tester. I ran it at 350 connections. This run completed 2nd in overall speed of finishing the task.
Finished first at 573 minutes
72K Successful Urls
Private Proxies from IPfreely – 90 connections
I ran the same 650K list with proxies from IPFreely. I ran this run at 90 connections.
Finished 2nd at 1018 minutes
199K Successful Urls
No Proxies – 150 connections
I ran the same 650K list with no proxies, the server that these were all run on doesn’t care about complaints, so I ran this list with no proxies. I chose 150 connections for this instance.
Finished last for overall time at 1218 minutes.
174K Successful Urls
There is no solid conclusion from this test persay, as its not an equal split test. The point of this test was just to give various information.
We can see that no proxies and private proxies finished fairly closely on success rates, and that no proxies is quite a bit slower. No proxies had quite a bit higher connections and still finished slower then with private proxies. I won’t go into depth as to why this is, and frankly I don’t have a highly descriptive answer. However its easy enough to see that the DNS of the server running with no proxies is slower then the combined DNS resolving of the various proxy servers.
Overall I am just presenting various information so you can more easily make your overall evaluation about what to use.
