Scrapebox, GSA Search Engine Ranker, Xumer, and similar software all require proxies if you plan on doing some real work with them. And not just any proxies. These tools require the best proxies on the market in order to function to their maximum potential. Now, I will share with you our experience with BuyProxies.org and why I believe them to be the best choice in that context.
BuyProxies’ Marketing Strategy
Right off the bat, when I first opened their homepage, I was unconsciously provoked by their good marketing strategy. It’s called sincerity. If you have seen their homepage you would know what I’m talking about. But for the purposes of this “discussion”, let me pretend that I am opening the BuyProxies homepage for the first time.
The first thing that catches my eye – Proxies with balls – Their slogan. Al right. You have my attention sirs. Now, reel me in. Proxy features:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- All proxies are on their own servers
- Great speed and uptime
- Fresh IPs
- We change our servers more often than we change our underwear, new proxies every 30 days – Well said sir, well said.
- Great and fast support 7 days a week, We don’t have any social life – I will get back on this later, because their support is just…
- No program restrictions, which means that you can use them for any software i.e. Scrapebox, GSA SER, Xumer, omegle – We aren’t pussies like other proxies providers.
Now that’s a nice combination of letters. Very simple and straightforward, right to the point and no bullshit. Because I am an aesthetic perfectionist by nature, the only thing I don’t like so far is the design, but hey, who cares, they are not a web design company anyways.
That’s pretty much about the BuyProxies homepage. The next thing you see on the site are their packages which are more than fair. That is the reason why there are no money off vouchers, discount coupons, or promotion codes available for BuyProxies. Their services are already at a natural discount. Moving on.
The Proxies by BuyProxies.org
This is where it all gets real guys. Before BuyProxies, we were using SquidProxies. Don’t get me wrong, SquidProxies are also an amazing provider, however, they are more into the BuyProxies-specified category of “pussy proxies providers“.
We were using their services for about 2 months and then we started getting new proxies almost every day. Good right? Wrong! The new proxies issued everyday were not designed for the software we are using so we were starting to see a huge decrease in results.
I contacted SquidProxies to ask them to resolve the issue, and they responded, after 1 day, that their ISP got complaints and they had to ban me from using U.S. proxies. So you see, their proxies are not that good in the “blackhat world“. At least in our experience. However, they did refund us without any questions asked, so these guys are cool as well.
And now, without proxies and many tools that require such, I had to make a fast decision. I did a quick research and found out that most people recommended BuyProxies. I figured I’d give them a go since they offer a 3 day money back guarantee so no risk there.
Bought 50 private proxies to test the service and within minutes I already had access to them. The proxies were used in GSA Search Engine Ranker without any problem whatsoever, and at the same time we were scraping URLs with Scrapebox 24/7. Not a single time did they burn out. 7 connections were used in Scrapebox, and GSA SER was running at 400 threads.
BuyProxies control proxies from the following countries:
When you place an order with them, you can simply select the country that you want the proxies to be from and you are good to go. By default they will supply you with U.S. proxies.
What more could we want?
Told you I’d get back on this. We had some problems with SERengines in GSA SER and our new proxies, so I decided to send the guys a support ticket to ask for assistance. I had read on forums that they answer within minutes, but I have to admit that I was skeptical.
It was no more than 30 seconds before I got a response! That’s what sealed the deal for me. Because you can contact these guys at anytime and you will get a response within minutes. If you get some non-working proxies for whatever reason (shit happens), you can get them replaced immediately.
Their support experience is unmatched. While with other proxy providers such as SquidProxies, you would have to wait a day or two to get a response, here, your problems are resolved within minutes.
Now do you understand why BuyProxies do not offer any online coupon codes, discount voucher codes, online promo codes, or any other codes for that matter. Think of their customer support as the discount you get.
BuyProxies Dedicated vs Semi-Dedicated Proxies
We have tested both their dedicated and semi-dedicated proxies and all work just great. When you make a choice, you have to consider the software you will be using the proxies in and the functionality they will be used for.
For instance, because we scrape links 24/7, private proxies are a much better solution to our purposes. But if you are using, for example, GSA SER just to post links, and not scrape target URLs, semi-dedicated proxies should do just fine.
Keep in mind that dedicated ones will always do a better job, because you don’t know for sure what the semi-dedicated ones are used for by someone else. They can die at some point and then be reborn again.
BuyProxies Optimal Configuration
Getting the best results out of your proxies is a matter of tweaking. Now, I don’t know what you will be using BuyProxies for, but if you are planning on scraping on Google, 1 connection per proxy is recommended. So if you have 100 proxies, you can try at 100 connections or threads if you are using GSA SER.
And if you are using one batch of proxies for more than one tool, you should lower the connections per proxy, which is logical. As I mentioned a little earlier, we tested 50 BuyProxies with 400 threads on GSA SER and 5 – 7 connections on Scrapebox.
Why so many threads on SER? Because if you are just using GSA to post to target URLs, you can go up to 10 threads per proxy. We recommend 7 – 8 per proxy to leave some room for the connections in Scrapebox.
Those are sample numbers that should give you some idea as to how you can optimally configure the proxies for your own purposes and situation.
Overall, BuyProxies have been the best proxy provider we have ever used. If you are still searching for reliable proxies with an astounding customer support, you can end your search guys. Try BuyProxies out and you won’t be disappointed. I promise you that. You can try out their service by clicking here.
