SEO Marketplace Question ;)

So a friend of mine is building a tool which will likely be publically available for usage and it may run a thousand or few thousand queries a day. This tool may query some of the major search engines and may need to use some open HTTP proxies.

Does anyone know how he can gain access to reliable open HTTP proxies and if / what costs would be available?

Feel free to emails me seobook aT gmail DoT com if you do not want to post anything in the comments.

If and when he completes the tool I will mention its launch on this site :)

That's idea is too slow!!

Because open proxies are slowww.

And if you seek scan the WWW, you need several high speed lines and cluster.

"I have test that you say in past time, is very slow, you can fetch a few millions of urls, but.. only with proxies you can not exploit search engines protections."
