    I'm using some cracked blackhat tools like GSA SER and SEO Powersuite from the BHW Downloads section(A big thank you!)


    I've seen YT videos on how to use them. They use proxies for scraping, mass posting etc.
    I have a static IP from cable company.
    I don't have money to buy proxies or VPNs. Will I face any problem?


    Can google detect my MAC address in particular and blacklist it?

    Yes you will face problems without proxies. Don't worry about your Mac address, that isn't the issue.
    Also you shouldn't brag about using a cracked tool that is sold in The Marketplace (GSA SER).

    Your IP address is the one you should be concerned, not the MAC address.

    Be careful with cracked software. Half of them are cracked for fun/respect the other half are for malicious purposes, like stealing all your passwords or becoming part of a bot net. Coming from a infosec/coding background I can tell you if your AV doesn't flag it doesn't mean sh*t :) use a vm or sandbox if you have no alternative :)

    IP leakage is a truly dreadful experience in internet marketing. Any thing that requires considerable posting activity, account creations in bulk, etc... will always require good quality anonymous proxies. Without them your software will show your computer's IP address for each activity you engage in. If you are spamming comments, or profile creation, etc... it will only take a couple transactions for you to be identified as a spammer and have your IP blocked/banned.

    This is why proxies are crucial to your online activities for using the tools like GSA Ser, Scrapebox, and many other SEO softwares.
