I have vague memories of routinely using proxies 20 years ago… Uhhh… things have changed… and only recently I’ve started getting blocked when doing research online.
Sometimes it’s just me typing really fast, searching, searching again and bam… blocked. Have to wait it out.
And although I’ve used lots of different software where most people use proxies, I never have and was never blocked.
Last week, I started using a YouTube/Google research tool and everything was fine till yesterday. Bam… Blocked! There’s an option to use proxies, but I’ve forgotten everything I ever knew about them, if I ever knew anything. How does a proxy help me avoid getting “blocked.” And why am I getting blocked? What’s the limit?
So what are they… how do you get them… how much are they… and since every major corporation I’ve ever done direct mail campaigns with ALWAYS used them, they must not be all bad, so I’m not opposed to them.
Any help? Education? Suggestions? Resources? Freebies? Etc?
