Use Proxy Lists and Rotating Proxies in Scrapebox

A tutorial on how to use our HTTP/Socks proxy lists and rotating proxy service in the popular SEO tool Scrapebox.

Here we will show how to use our Proxy List and Rotating Proxy with Scrapebox. Our Rotating Proxy service includes Rotating Premium Proxy service (stable premium proxies) and Rotating Open Proxy service (unstable public proxies).

1. Use Proxy Lists in Scrapebox

First, download the proxy list by Elite Proxy Switcher (for HTTP proxy) or Socks Proxy Checker (for Socks Proxy). You can also use the API URL to get the proxy list.

Second, copy the proxies to clipboard by right clicking the proxy area.

Then paste the proxies to Scrapebox. Before doing it, you can clear the old proxies first.

2. Use Socks Proxies in Scrapebox

For Socks proxies, you need to do an additional operation. Select all the proxies and then mark them as Socks.

Now you can use the proxies to do the tasks in Scrapebox.

3. Use Rotating Proxy in Scrapebox

For Google, we recommend our Rotating Open Proxy. Since Rotating Premium Proxy has limited IPs, Google blocks most of them. Rotating Open Proxy has new IPs every day. It still works for Google searches.

Username/Password Authentication

First, copy the IP:Port:Username:Password to clipboard. Note: 104.28.22.115:2000 and its username/password in this image is just a demo. You should use the real one in your account.

If you use IP authentication, you can just copy the IP:Port. It doesn’t need the username/password.

Note: 104.28.22.115:2000 is just a demo. You should see the real one in your client area and whitelist your IP there.

Now you can paste the rotating proxy to Scrapebox by right-clicking the proxy area.

Scrapebox import rotating proxy

Now the rotating proxy is ready for Scrapebox’s tasks.

You may ask all the traffic is from the same IP? No. Every time Scrapebox uses the rotating proxy, it will use a new IP to access the target website.

4. Scrapebox Proxy Checker

There is a problem with the proxy checker of Scrapebox. The rotating proxy doesn’t pass its Google test.

However, you can still use the rotating proxy to get the search results from Google using the “Detailed Harvester”. Note: The “Custom Harvester” failed to do its task using our rotating proxy.

Note: If your country blocks Google, you can use the socks port 3000 of the rotating proxy in Scrapebox. Remember to “Mark it as Socks” in Scrapebox’s proxy section (see Point 2 above).
