Many are unsure of what happens when you click the “Get Proxies” button in Proxy Multiply.
If your list of proxies is empty (0 proxies in it), Proxy Multiply will scrape proxies from the list of ‘Proxy Fetching URLs’ found in the Configuration window. The program will work its way through the list of URLs one at a time. When it is finished, the status window will indicate how many proxies it harvested from the URLs.
If your proxy list already contains proxies, Proxy Multiply will begin utilizing its unique search mechanism to find proxies on Google, Bing and Yahoo. It will search the websites using your existing proxy list as a search criteria. For example, when you go to Google and type in ‘red car’, you find more red cars. When Proxy Multiply searches for a proxy (188.8.131.52:3128 for example), it will find more pages with other proxies on them. See the example pic below:
After finding more pages containing proxies, Proxy Multiply will crawl the pages and extract the proxies. You can do this by hand and find just as many proxies as Proxy Multiply does, but the program cuts down on the time required to do so considerably while still producing a very large quantity of proxies.
With Proxy Multiply’s unique search methods, you will always have a source of fresh, updated proxies.
