How many proxies are you guys using?

edited December 2012 in Need Help
How many proxies are you guys using? I came across many that claim to only use 10 private proxies. Any suggestions?

    I use 100 shared proxies from BuyProxies and then i use the GSA scraper to scrape every 30 min. Total working proxies at anytime is around 2200

    Seems to work fine with me.

    Same here but I don't seem to get that much of shared proxies from SER proxy harvester. Do you use the default proxy sites built in in SER to find good proxies ? or you changed/edit them a bit ?

    I use the automatic with the default and that give me around 2000 good proxies.

    My settings are:
    Check for new proxies every 30 min.
    Second option unchecked
    Test proxies : Only newly added + Retest previously working proxies
    I auto export the list to my dropbox folder in case i need a proxy for something i can just get it from there.
    Threats at 50 and timeout at 60

    For my set up the above seems to work ok for me

  • I see, in mine I set the timeout much lower than this to get only fast proxies. That's why I'm getting much lower than you get.
  • Why shared proxies and not private? and does location of the proxies matter? I think i can get some asia proxies for cheap but i keep seeing people asking/talking about US proxies instead

    Shared proxy is because i cant afford 100 private proxies --

    Timeout 60. Would that be a bit slow ?


    What timeout setting do you used for public proxy ?

    I use timeout at 2 seconds currently but I'm thinking to set it at 1 sec.
  • based on 2 seconds timeouts apx how many public proxies you were able to scrape ?

    what is the "best practice" for public proxy timeouts ?

    thanks in advance for the info.
