How to use the Search Module

This how-to guide will explain what the Search Module is, how to use it, and some common mistakes to avoid when using the tool. Let's get started!

What is the Search Module?

On the Main Screen of Epic Traffic Bot Pro, you will see the Search Module section:

The Search Module works like so:

  • Epic Traffic Bot Pro will perform a search for your keywords on the selected browser, or Source, field like Google.com.
  • For example, if you entered the keyword "programming tutorials", the application will search for this term on Google.
  • A search is performed and the results are displayed.
  • Epic Traffic Bot Pro will then try to find the URL you entered in the Enter URL/URLs Manually section.
    • If the application finds the URL on page 1 of Google results, the application will output the message "Found link on page 7 of Google" to the console.
    • If the application does not find the URL on page 1 of Google results, it will navigate to page 2 of the results.

This process is repeated until you hit the page limit you have set in Advanced Search Options. We'll demonstrate this in more detail with an example you can follow along with.

Find out where a webpage ranks for a specific search term

Let's go through an end-to-end use case for the Search Module which will demonstrate the power and flexibility of this tool.

Our use case is as follows: We want to find out where the page https://www.w3schools.com/ ranks on Google.com for 3 specific search terms:

  • programming tutorials
  • tutorials for programming
  • learn to program

Let's look at how we can accomplish this:

  1. Set the webpage you want to see the ranking result of in the Enter URL/URLs Manually section. We recommend using only one URL when using the Search module.

  2. Click the Activate Search Module button.

  3. Set your Source. This will be the browser used to search for your keywords.

  4. Enter your keyword terms. Enter one term on each line. For this example, enter the terms:

  • programming tutorials
  • tutorials for programming
  • learn to program.
  1. Go to Advanced Search Options

  2. Set the number of pages of search results you want to iterate through. If set to 10, the application will go through 10 pages of search results looking for https://www.w3schools.com/ for each of our keywords.

  3. Change the other Advanced Search Options if you wish. Here are the definitions for the remaining options:

  • Click percentage on website if found: The percentage chance of clicking the website if the website is found for that keyword. For example, if you put 5, it will be 5%. That means that only 5% of the tasks will click the website)
  • Duration to stay on each page: How much time the bot will stay on each page of search results before going to the next page.
  1. Click Save And Close.
  2. Enable Visible Mode so we can see Epic Traffic Bot Pro in action!
  3. Click on Start.

Your browser should open. You should see Google search for your keywords. When I ran this task the website https://www.w3schools.com/ ranked on page 7 of Google for the search term "programming tutorials".

Experiment with different keywords and websites more applicable to your specific use case or scenario. Here are some common mistakes to avoid and things to look out for when using the Search Module.

Common mistakes to avoid when using the Search Module

Some things to remember when using this tool:

  • We recommend only putting 1 URL in the Enter URL/URLs Manually section when using the search module.
  • Remember to put the trailing / at the end of homepages, eg. https://www.msn.com/
  • We do not recommend using this feature if you do not have paid residential proxies. The proxies that are included with this product are free, public proxies. It will result in a lot of captchas being flagged. Check out our documentation on when to use rotating residential proxies and how to avoid Captchas.

Epic Traffic Bot Pro Documentation

Welcome to the official documentation of Epic Traffic Bot Pro.

Getting Started

Thank you for purchasing Epic Traffic Bot Pro! The first thing you have to do before you can start automating website actions and driving traffic to your sites is to register your new software.

Registering your software

Note that when you register your purchased software, it will be linked to the PC/device you used at the time of registration. If you need to reset your license, you can do so by navigating to your EpicTrafficBot dashboard and unlinking the machine from there.

To successfully complete the registration of your software, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the PayPal purchase confirmation email you received when you purchased the software.

  2. Copy the credentials from this email. You should see three items:

    a. Your username, which is the same as your e-mail address that you signed up with.

    b. Your password, which is the same as the one you set for the EpicTrafficBot website.

  3. Launch the Epic Traffic Bot application.

  4. Enter your credentials into the relevant fields:

The Epic Traffic Bot Pro Dashboard

When you launch the application you will be greeted by the Epic Traffic Bot Pro dashboard. This is the main hub of the tool and allows you to perform many different actions and navigate to different parts of the app.

One of the first things you’ll notice is the Epic Traffic Pro Navigation Pane on the left side of the user interface.

Epic Traffic Bot Pro Navigation Pane

The Epic Traffic Bot Pro Navigation Pane allows you to navigate to the 5 main sections of the application. These 5 sections are:

  1. Main - this section allows you to send mass traffic to websites and automate tasks.
  2. Proxy - download new free public proxies and configure the existing proxies you want to use for your task
  3. Scripting - Configure scripts that automate web tasks.
  4. Updates - Checks whether Epic Traffic Bot Pro is up-to-date.
  5. Settings - Make changes to the settings of the application, clean the resources, and more.

Main

The Main screen allows you to configure the job parameters required for your automated task. This includes:

  • Setting time between tasks,
  • Setting which devices to use for your job,
  • Declare what URLs you would like to visit or send traffic to, and much more!

Let’s go into more detail about each field that is shown on the main screen.

Enter URL/URLs Manually

Allows you to the URL or URLs you would like to visit, send traffic to, or perform automated actions on.

To accomplish this:

  1. Click the Enter URL/URLs Manually button.
  1. Type or copy and paste in your desired URLs, eg. https://google.com.
  1. Make sure there is only one URL per line.
  2. Click Save and Close.

Load URL/URLs From File

Allows you to upload a .txt file containing your URLs instead of manually entering them individually.

Remove File

Clicking this button will remove the URL file you previously uploaded using the Load URL/URLs From File function. This causes the application to revert back to using the manually entered URLs that you configured here.

Duration in milliseconds

The scheduler waits for a random time between the minimum and maximum times you set here. Once the scheduler is done waiting, the task starts. The wait occurs before the script is run.

For the example shown below, the task will be executed at a random time between 1 and 3 seconds (milliseconds are equal to 1000 seconds).

Wait after task finished

This is how long the scheduler will wait after the successful completion of a task. Consider the following example:

  1. You have a task that searches for the term “dogs” on Google.
  2. You set the Wait After Task Finished minimum to be 3000.
  3. You set the Wait After Time Finished maximum to be 5000.
  4. When you run your task, it will open up Google, search for “dogs”, and perform no other actions for between 3-5 seconds.
  5. After this time, it will perform the same task again.

Wait After Task Finished is an important parameter as you can use it to avoid “spamming” URLs and getting flagged as a bot.

Max Visits

This is the maximum number of site visitors you want to send to each URL you have specified. This is the number of visitors that you want to send to each URL.

Consider the following use case:

  • If you put 100, each URL will get 100 visits,
  • If you have 10 URLs and 100 max visits that means a total of 1000 visits before the campaign can be considered complete. The software will continue to send visits until the maximum amount of visits is reached.

Timeout

This is how long the application will attempt a single task before timing out. This parameter is measured in seconds. For example, if you input 60 here, each task will wait for 60 seconds when waiting for a page to load, or waiting for a specific element on that page to load.

Configure Devices

This feature allows you to configure the devices you want to use for your automation or website traffic generation. Please refer to our dedicated documentation on configuring devices.

Tasks

This field determines how many parallel tasks will run at the time of execution. Here are some notes on what to expect when running tasks in parallel:

  • A higher number of tasks means a faster execution speed but at the cost of more resource usage.
  • Each PC has a hard limit on how many parallel tasks you can use.
  • With an i7 or i9 processor and 16GB/32GB of ram, you can expect up to 70-120 parallel tasks on non-visible mode and 20-40 on visible mode.
  • If your PC is not very powerful, try running 10 parallel tasks and see how it performs. You can gradually increase this number until you find an ideal number that balances speed and performance.

Visible Mode

This setting determines whether the browser is visible or invisible.

  • Visible Mode: Each task will spawn a visible browser that will visit the website and perform the actions you configured under the Scripting tab.
  • Invisible Mode: Each task will be completed in the background without spawning a visible browser, consuming fewer resources as a result.

Some important points to remember about setting the Visible mode:

  • Visible mode uses more resources (x3) but it might be required for some websites.
  • Remember to reduce the number of tasks if you run it in visible mode to keep the task stable.

Disable Images

Click this to disable images on browsers and improve performance. This is enabled by default.

Visit Mode

This setting determines the order in which you visit the URLs you set up in the Enter URL/URLs Manually or Load URLs from File section. You have two options:

  1. Shuffle
  2. One by One

Visit Mode - Shuffle

If you choose Shuffle, each task will get a random URL from the list of URLs.

Each task will get a random URL so one URL may get more visits than another. One of the advantages of this is that you can send mass traffic at the same time to multiple URLs.

Visit Mode - One by One

If you choose One by One each task will deliver the maximum amount of visits to one URL before moving to the next one. For example, if you entered 10 URLs and 100

max visits, all of the available tasks will deliver hits to the first URL until it reaches 100 visits before proceeding to the next URL.

Activate Search Module

This module will let you search for your keywords on the selected search engine.

Select your search engine and enter a single keyword per line in the text box.

Some things to remember when using this tool:

  • We recommend only putting 1 URL when using the search module.
  • Remember to put the trailing / at the end of homepages, eg. https://www.msn.com/
  • We do not recommend using this feature if you do not have paid residential proxies. The proxies that are included with this product are free, public proxies. It will result in a lot of captchas being flagged. Check out our documentation on when to use rotating residential proxies.

If you can’t use the high-quality proxies we recommend, you can also send organic traffic to a URL using the referrer module and by entering google links containing keywords. Read about the referrer module here.

Advanced Search Options

Here you can modify the parameters used during the search module. The available options are as follows:

Try to search website till page

This is how many pages on Google, or the selected search engine, the application will iterate through after the search for the keyword is performed.

Click percentage on website if found

The percentage chance to click the website if the website is found for that keyword.

For example, if you put 5, it will be 5%. That means that only 5% of the tasks will click the website.

Duration to stay on each page of search result

You can supply a minimum and maximum value here. This is how much time the bot will stay on each page of Google before going to the next page.

Referrer Module

This module will let you modify HTTP headers and set a new referrer. The Referer header allows a server to identify a page where people are visiting it from.

For example, if you put https://www.facebook.com/ here, it will appear that a new visitor from Facebook visited your website. If you want organic traffic from search results with public proxies you can enter URLs like this on the referrer module:

Also, don’t forget to change HTTPS to HTTP if your website starts with HTTP.

Configuring devices

After clicking the Configure Devices button you will be shown a wide array of options.

Let’s discuss these options in detail, as a full understanding of them will enable you to use Epic Traffic Bot Pro to its full potential.

When you first open the modal, you will only see one device. This modal displays all of the devices you have created:

What is a Device?

In Epic Traffic Bot Pro we allow users to create their own devices which will be used to perform the automated tasks you set up. For example, you create an Android mobile device using our software, and use this device to visit websites, click ads, or perform any other automated web tasks you can think of.

Creating a new Device in Configure Devices

There are some things to keep in mind before creating a device:

  • You can create up to 500 devices each time.
  • There are no limits on how many devices you can have in total.
  • The 500 device limit is due to the amount of time it takes to create that many devices.
  • If you need a high number of devices, you should create a device generator instead.
  • If you want to customize how devices are generated you need to click the Advanced Settings button.

To create a new device follow these steps:

PROXY

Configure your device to use a custom proxy instead of a global proxy.

Add Devices - Advanced Settings

The Advanced Settings screen allows you to finely-tune the settings used in the creation of your devices.

Let’s discuss the many options available here.

Browser Language

Choose if you want the software to use a random browser language, a custom one, or a predefined one like “Spain” or “Italy”.

Note: You will need to supply the correct browser language code here. For example, Spain = es, United Kingdom = en-GB.

Click this link to see a list of all browser languages permitted by our software,

Browser Timezone

Decide between a custom browser timezone, a random one, or have Epic Traffic Bot Pro automatically choose a matching browser language based on the browser language that the software chose during device generation.

To see a list of all browser timezones used by our software you can refer to this link.

Proxy Settings

This setting allows you to :

  • Set the software to use a custom proxy.
  • If you disable this feature the software will the proxies from the global proxy list.
  • If you enable this feature the software will automatically pick a proxy that matches the browser language.

Consider the following example:

  • You choose Spain as the Browser Language and match the browser language on the proxy settings.
  • The software will automatically pick a random Spanish proxy.

Note: these are public proxies and should only be used to send traffic as they are easily detected by most websites. We highly recommend using paid proxies. Failure to do so may cause unexpected results.

Geolocation Settings

Similar to the Proxy Settings, you can disable this feature, use custom geolocation coordinates, or automatically match it to the browser language.

For example, if you put Spain in the browser language, the software will automatically choose random coordinates from Spain.

Fonts Spoofing

Determines whether Epic Traffic Bot Pro will spoof the fonts used on your browser to bypass the anti-bot detection algorithms of certain websites.

Fonts Spoofing Enabled:

Fonts Spoofing Disabled:

Canvas Spoofing

This setting allows you to spoof canvas drawings generated by your browser to bypass the anti-bot detection algorithms of certain websites.

Canvas Spoofing Enabled:

Canvas Spoofing Disabled:

Note: Canvas spoofing can break some websites.

Activate Persistence

Here you can tell the software if it should clear cache and browser history each time a task uses this device.

Activate Persistence Enabled:

Activate Persistence Disabled:

WebGL Spoofing

If enabled, the software will spoof the GPU used on your browser to bypass the anti-bot detection algorithms of certain websites.

WebGL Spoofing Enabled:

WebGL Spoofing Disabled:

Network Emulation

If enabled, the software will emulate a network condition different than your current one to bypass the anti-bot detection algorithms of certain websites.

CPU Emulation

Here you can tell the software if it should emulate a slower or faster CPU to bypass the anti-bot detection algorithms of certain websites.

Proxy

This section covers the Proxy functionality available in the Epic Traffic Bot Pro application.

What is a proxy?

A proxy acts as an intermediary between you and your network activity and can provide you with an extra layer of protection.

Clicking the Proxy option in the Epic Traffic Bot Pro Navigation Pane leads you to the Proxy screen. You can decide whether or not you want to use proxies here, download publicly available proxies, and purchase rotating residential proxies that are more suitable for big projects.

Note that if you already created some devices with proxies enabled they won’t use a proxy from this list.

Using a Proxy

If this setting is enabled by clicking the Use Proxies button, Epic Traffic Bot Pro will use the proxies you set up on this page.

Downloading Proxies

If you click this button a new window will appear. Here you can download free public proxies based on country scraped by our servers.

Keeping Proxies up-to-date

If you click this button before starting the program, the proxy list will get automatically updated with new proxies every 5 minutes.

Deciding between Free vs. Paid Proxies

When deciding what proxies to use with Epic Traffic Bot Pro, there are some important pieces of information to keep in mind.

Using Free vs. Paid Proxies

Free proxies, by the virtue of being free, are typically very slow due to the high columns of traffic they receive. Slower network speeds have a negative impact on the functionality of Epic Traffic Bot Pro.

Paid proxies on the other hand are dedicated, secure, and offer much higher speeds than that of free proxies. But there are many different paid proxies to choose from. Generally speaking, you can expect good performance with our tool if you decide to use any of the following proxies:

  • Rotating lower quality residential proxies with unmetered traffic but limited to threads
  • Premium residential proxies with limited traffic and with good ReCaptcha scores
  • Rotating mobile 4g proxies
  • Rotating datacenter proxies
  • Fixed residential/datacenter proxies

However, if we were to select one type of proxy to recommend, it would be Rotating Residential Proxies.

Why we Recommend Rotating Residential Proxies

A rotating residential proxy will change or rotate your proxy for each request you make. This gives you extra protection from getting blocked by websites because your IP address is never the exact same. We recommend using higher-quality, rotating residential proxies when using the Activate Search Module feature. We don't recommend using this feature if you don’t have high-quality proxies. It will result in a lot of captchas being flagged.

Why you should avoid flagging Captchas {#why-you-should-avoid-flagging-captchas}

A Captcha test is designed to determine if an online user is really a human and not a bot. A Captcha may be triggered if user behavior seems to resemble a bot's behavior like if the users request webpages or click hyperlinks at a far higher rate than average. If you flag a Captcha, you will be identified as suspicious and potentially malicious. This could result in your IP address being blacklisted making it more difficult to perform the automated tasks you want using Epic Traffic Bot Pro.

Settings

Clicking the Settings button in the Epic Traffic Bot Pro Navigation Pane leads you to the Settings screen.

From this location you can tell the software to launch the browser with additional parameters, to set your 2Captcha API, or to load custom browser extensions that you can use in Visible mode.

Using 2Captcha API

If you want to solve Recaptcha or image captchas automatically, you to create a script that contains the "Solve Captcha/Recaptcha" scripting control and then put your 2Captcha API key here so that the software can communicate automatically with the 2Captcha paid service to solve them.

Chrome Visible Mode Extensions

You can put your custom extensions in the extension folder. They need to end with .crx or the program will ignore them.

These are typical Chrome extensions that you can download from the Chrome Webstore.

After downloading an extension, you need to place the associated .crx file under the extensions folder where Epic Traffic Bot.exe file is located.

Extra Command Flags

Clean Resources

Clicking this button will force close all chromedriver.exe and chrome.exe instances.

Scripting

Clicking the Scripting button in the Epic Traffic Bot Pro Navigation Pane leads you to the Scripting screen.

Scripting allows you to automate tasks, create bots, and perform intricate actions on websites like placing orders, registering new users, and clicking on ads.

Troubleshooting

Welcome to the troubleshooting page. Here you’ll find solutions to the issues you may face when using our application. Many applications have protections in place against bots which can cause certain errors to appear. This page should help you work around or avoid these errors.

Getting Started

The errors you face can be a result of:

  • User behavior
  • System constraints
  • Protections in place that defend against bots

We have sorted the errors into these categories:

  • Registration Errors
  • Common errors
  • Critical errors
  • External critical errors
  • Permission issues

Registration Errors

These are the errors you may face when you attempt to register the software for the first time. Errors that can happen when you try to register the software

License is already bound to a PC

We only allow a license to be bound to a single PC at a time. You will need to reset your license or purchase a new license.

The credentials I was supplied with don’t work

This occurs if our application cannot find your credentials in the database. Please double-check that you are using the correct credentials from the email you received at the time of purchase.

If you are 100% sure that you are entering your credentials correctly, double-check that your internet connection works properly and that you don’t have a VPN or system-level proxies currently active on your machine.

If you still cannot log in, please contact support.

Object reference not set to an instance of an object

This error happens when the Epic Traffic Bot Pro has issues reading the processor ID or motherboard ID needed to create a unique string and to bind your license to the PC.

Usually, this error happens on virtual machines like VM-ware or Oracle, where access to this information is forbidden.

Common errors

This section covers some of the most common errors you can encounter when using Epic Traffic Bot Pro. Think of these error messages as warnings, they will not stop the software from functioning as intended.

unknown error: net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET

This error occurred because the proxy connection reset while connecting to the web page. Connectivity issues can be fixed by using higher quality or paid proxies.

Check out our documentation on what proxies we recommend.

unknown error: net::ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED

The proxy failed to connect. Connectivity issues can be fixed by using higher quality or paid proxies.

Check out our documentation on what proxies we recommend.

net::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

The proxy failed to authenticate. Connectivity issues can be fixed by using higher quality or paid proxies.

Check out our documentation on what proxies we recommend.

unknown error: net::ERR_TUNNEL_CONNECTION_FAILED

Occurs because the internet is not available on the proxy, or the proxy is overloaded at the moment. Connectivity issues can be fixed by using higher quality or paid proxies.

Check out our documentation on what proxies we recommend.

timeout: Timed out receiving message from renderer: 60.000

Try reducing task count. This error happens when the GPU renderer hangs on a specific task.

Critical Errors

While common errors do not cause issues, critical errors could make the software stop working as intended.

unknown error: no chrome binary

This occurs when the chrome.exe file is missing from the installation folder. A rare error can happen when an antivirus decides to delete the chrome.exe file.

The file is 100% clean. You can whitelist it on your antivirus or disable your antivirus. You can get a fresh download complete with all necessary files here.

unknown error: chrome not reachable

Usually, this error happens when there is an issue communicating with the chrome executable. Try disabling your VPN or any other similar proxy applications that could interfere with the software.

unknown error: DevToolsActivePort file doesn’t exist

Try to use device generators instead of fixed devices and lower your task count. See our documentation on device generators.

Some users reduced the chances of this error occurring by adding the –no-sandbox and –remote-debugging-port=9222 flags found under Settings before launching the software.

unable to discover open pages

A rare error that used to occur on older versions of the software. Please check that your software is up-to-date. If you encounter this error, please contact support.

cannot start the driver service on http://localhost:xxxxx/

This error means that the driver controlling the browser was unable to start on that specific port. Please check that you don’t have any VPN or system-level proxies on your PC running while you use the software.

If the error persists, complete a fresh install of the software using this link.

External Critical Errors

These are rare errors that can occur under specific circumstances.

chromedriver.exe – Application error

An external popup will appear displaying this error. When this happens it means there was a memory leak.

The possible causes for this critical error are:

  • Epic Traffic Bot Pro was not installed under your user folder (Desktop, Documents, Downloads, etc). If it was installed somewhere like the C: drive, memory leaks can occur.
    • A memory leak can happen if the software doesn’t have enough permissions to Read/Write on the hard disk to close the unused processes, or if it was installed on an admin permission level folder like Program Files.
  • This error can also occur if you try to use more parallel tasks than your machine can handle.

Unhandled exception has occurred pop-up alert (Newtonsoft.Json)

The exception message will usually say Newtonsoft.Json binaries are missing.

  • This error happens when you move the Epic Traffic Bot.exe file outside of the folder where the binaries are located.
  • If you want to create a shortcut on your Desktop, right-click “Epic Traffic Bot.exe” and select the option Send to Desktop (create shortcut) option.

Permission Issues

If you see issues like:

  • hanging chromedriver.exe and chrome.exe processes
  • slow execution speed

You might have extracted the folder on a high permission folder.

We recommend extracting the folder to Documents, Desktop, or somewhere similar. Avoid extracting the .zip file on a high permission folder like Program Files.
