    as long as you post with one user in each forum you won't need proxies. If you're planning to make a few users on the same forum, assign each one a proxy.

    no, google can't detect the ip that did the posts, so you don't need proxies just for that

    you might need proxies if your posts get deleted for spamming and your accounts shutted down..

    if you use one ID per form. You dont need proxy. And if you are giving something useful in the forum you never need a proxy!

    Hi,

    No they can't because Google dont have access to every sites private database :)

    But if the forum is tracking with Analytics, well thats a different can of worms!

    Not one that I would be arsed about personally though ^^

    My opinion...

    No, G can't track your IP but as have been said if the forum use Analytic that might be a problem.

    Second it will be better to use different users, one for each forum because the username can became a foot print.

    Thank you

    No but Akismet can and it uses our friends at Spamhaus to track IP addresses from spammers. If you manually post to forums and use different text you should run under their radar screen. But in the course of a day if you do a hundred of the same post they might tag you as a spammer and all of your posts would get tagged that way.
