google 302 code isn't a ban

maybe in the past google used the code 302 to redirect to a ban page but now is also used for other things.

For instance if you have a proxy form UK and you enter to, google uses a 302 redirect to redirect you to


  • Yes it is true, I have seen this problem too, in GSA my proxies are not working, in my browser are working. 

  • SvenSven
    SER follows 302 redirects. The reason why your proxy works in google in browser is due to cookies being present from old sessions.

    no, you can try in private mode without any cookie

    also you can try with this php script


    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, '');
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 20);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, "IP:PORT");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 10);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 5);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, 'USER:PASS');
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1); //comment this to see the redirect link which isn't with "sorry" or captcha
    echo curl_exec($ch);

    I don't say that all are working if they have a 302, but some of them are still good, if you like we can provide some proxies to test
  • SvenSven
    yes provide the proxies for testing please.
  • the test was provided

  • yes, we also saw this, seems to be a new change on google
  • hm, i had the same situation with 1 proxie. From today it wasnt working on Google anymore, in browser it was fine. Now in update 9.47 is testing in ser ok.
  • yes, sven contacted us and fixed the issue ;)
  • SvenSven

    @Sven does this still apply?

    I've tested today my proxies on SER and shows working for Google.

    I do the proxy test against google on Scrapebox and I get 302 Found or Moved Temporarily for some.
  • SvenSven
    hmm this issue should be fixed. But this might be another prolem. Have a look here:
  • gsa8mycowsgsa8mycows
    @Sven I appreciate your reply. I don't have gsa ps.

    However, these are VPS and 1 Dedi server IPs/proxies, so these are private proxies, and it's just interesting to see that scrapebox returns 302 on these proxies.

    I've tried google test on scrapebox AND to follow redirects. It seems then they get a 503 error code.

  • gsa8mycowsgsa8mycows
    503 (server error) is probably their captcha page.
  • SvenSven
    As what type do you have it listed in our tool and as what type in the other? Because as on that FAQ said, the type it is used for is important.
  • gsa8mycowsgsa8mycows
    These are normal squid http connect proxies installed by myself on about 15 servers.
  • SvenSven
    but is SB even able to use that as connect proxies? I think they only use socks or web!?

    no idea, I just got myself a squid3 installer and from the conf file, it looks a connect proxy. Scrapebox can use it without any problems. It's their proxy tester that's strange.

    sent you a copy of the proxy conf file
