    Is there a point in using transparent proxies for black hat seo (link building) ?
    What good is it if they do not hide your ip?

    No, you shouldn't be using transparent proxies, because your IP is still visible. However, you can use public proxies that are not transparent, i.e, anonymous proxies for scraping.

    nope, transparent proxies are in no use for linkbuilding as your IP is still seen. Go with anonymous/high anonymous proxies only!

    I use transparent proxies all the time and they work perfectly for me. For example, making (and/or) taking Yahoo accounts, which have multitudes of uses when it comes to advertising. It all depends on what you want to do and the way their system is set up. Certain sites have more restrictions than others.

    transparent proxies are just for cache or to put some restrictions

    Technically most of those transparent proxies do hide your real IP address (REMOTE_ADDR is replaced with some other IP that's not yours), the problem is that your real IP address is visible in other headers like HTTP_VIA so if the host is smart enough(most aren't!), it will figure out your real IP address by looking at other headers besides just REMOTE_ADDR

    It all settles down too transparent are point less , anon proxies will protect you too an extent, the only kind of proxies you ever want too be using is a socks5 elite proxie / when a elite proxies is being used the sever on the other end will 90% of the time they wont even reconize your proxy protocol, they will continue too think you are useing a"familycpu".

    my thought's Do Not use Transparent proxies!
    there is two way's too do things the right wy and the wrong way.
