Error: No targets to post (while scraping), private proxies are fine

I remember some questions about this issue, but this one is not proxies (other projects that are scraping are running fine). 
Here is the error message:
"2020-02-20 20:38: No targets to post to (Posts per account: 6, Posts per site: 6, Minutes to wait for first post: 1-3, Minutes to wait for next post: 10-20, Minutes to wait for next signup: 4-6) [first appeared at 2020-02-20 20:32]"

Trying to index 72 URLs.
Using 305,017 keywords (ALL ENGLISH)
Search Engines by Language: ENGLISH, SPANISH, FRENCH, GERMAN
Scheduled Posting you can see on the error message
No skips by country or language

Again, project is scraping search engines.
+ using private proxies (other projects are scraping and posting)
+ Getting error maybe once a day.

Please help, this project is lagging behind, not sure why.
Thanks in advance everyone.

    Do you see this project doing any search queries at all?

    Just looking at the proj, it does search queries, already have 2K+ submitted links, then stops (I am guessing it stops because of what the error says, i guess it goes to sleep). Is there a way to see realtime search queries numbers by project? How do i debug that? Thanks.

    It is actually posting (i see some SUBMITTED urls for today - 21st), and a new error message:
    "2020-02-21 11:02: No targets to post to (Posts per account: 6, Posts per site: 6, Minutes to wait for first post: 1-3, Minutes to wait for next post: 10-20, Minutes to wait for next signup: 4-6) [first appeared at 2020-02-20 20:32]"

    On the submitted URLs list there are a lot of [awaiting account verification], but some approved ones too. Is there a way to push account verification?

    Another thing is that when I open the submitted urls window, and sort by date, there are some urls submitted on the 2/24/2020. I can see the server date is 2/21/2020. How is that possible?

    Thanks for the help

    I think I found the issue, although I am not sure why. It got better after I selected only English search engines for scraping the targets. I think I had English, German, French and Spanish search engines selected, and working with only English keywords might be a performance error. Hard to know for sure, unless Sven could maybe throw some light into how multiple search engines selections play a role in scraping. Thanks.
  • I'm shooting in the dark here but different search engines react differently for the same keywords and return different search results.
    For example I'm in Spain and every bloody time I search for something here in any other language I got a little pop up that says "Looking for search results in English?" with some options to select from.
    I guess this can affect your search results too.

    Yes, I am thinking something along those lines is what creates a bottleneck in the scraping process. Thanks.
