“Not Enough Content” & Your Proxies

Hi guys,

We would like to address a couple of issues that you have been having these days,  The “Not Enough Content” issue and the failing proxies issue.

These two are closely related because when you get the message that there isn’t enough content for words like “dogs” it means that your proxies are failing and KM could not get enough content to build your articles.

“I tested my proxies in Scrapebox and they are all alive!”

Well, here is the truth – we don’t want to go into much details on how Scrapebox tests proxies in Google but let’s just say it’s… basic. It merely recognizes that the proxy is alive and a simple search can be done with it while KM goes a little bit deeper and tries to scrape some more data. Now here is where the proxy fails and this is the reason Kontent Machine marks it as non-working.

Google is getting smarter and smarter and we all know that. We will not name them, but some of the more famous proxy providers are selling proxies which are excellent for posting but suck at scraping large amounts of data from the biggest search engine. Google quickly spots them and bans them. This is how you have been getting the dreaded “Not enough content” message.

Luckily Bing and Yahoo are not that paranoid when it comes to automated data mining and your proxies should be working just fine with them.

“Am I going to get less content now?”

Absolutely not! Kontent Machine works in such a way that it doesn’t matter which search engine it uses, you will still get a ton of content. And the best thing is – after our tests scraping with private proxies from Bing and Yahoo is much faster now. Isn’t that a cool bonus?

“What are you working on right now? What’s the next update?”

We are reviewing the article building functionality and we will be adding the option to choose which sources to use in the “Generate Kontent” process. We will also be adding some more sources too.

We are exploring a possibility which would allow you to build even higher quality, absolutely unique articles suitable for Tier 1 and even money page but more on that… later.


Thank you guys!

Manuel & Georgi

    Even with 54 working proxy’s according to KM or no proxies, I still get no content for insanely large keywords like internet marketing or weight loss. How do I set to use a different search provider, should I just be changing my vps default search provider?

      It’s best to contact us via our ticketing system so we can see if the problem is with the proxies or something else.

    Hey guys

    I use 50 semi private proxies from BuyProxies.org. I tried pasting them into the scraper options, but it tells me that they all failed. Is there a better place to get my proxies from that will work with KM? Would it be better if I bought private proxies instead of semi-private? Thanks –

    How can I apply Proxies for Kontent Machine? I have a trouble with notice “Can’t fetch enough content. Maybe your IP has been banned. Please, try again later or use proxies!

      Hi Harry,

      Just paste your proxies in the text box and check the “Use Proxies” checkbox.
      Make sure you test them before working with them because not all proxies are good for scraping.

    Hi guys,

    Im new to KM and it seems like a great software.

    I have a question : I use 3 kw to generate my content and I blast with SEnuke and GSA. How can I know when I should re-scrap content for other kws so Im sure the articles I post wont go in duplicate content issue ?

    I created around 300 – 400 articles with KM but it seems like my titles and body content are very similars..

    Do you have any suggestions ?

      Hi arkant1,

      If you use higher levels of randomization then 300-400 articles are enough. The maximum randomization level will give you 20 variations for each paragraph. You can imagine how many variations a super-spun article with 7 paragraphs and each paragraph having 20 alternatives will have.

      What you can do is just hit the “Reload Kontent” button because KM doesn’t use all the content it scraped to form the new one. When you reload it it will take from the “hidden” content and the articles will be totally new.
