    Hello everyone!

    My first website.
    I was testing a php script and it requires referral so I use hidemyass.
    So does it hurt my website like in SERP or google penalty?

    Though I am not trying to rank it for now.
    And advice?

    I presume you mean the referral agent of users coming to your website? Or...?

    I don't really understand what are you talking about. Using HMA VPN for referral is not the smartest thing to be done but to affect your site, I don't really get it. Please explain a bit more and when you ask a question add all your unknown things - don't just ask - will a meteorite fall on Earth ?:)

    I mean. The php script needs referrals like when someone visits my site, the script gave them a unique referral code therefore they need to refer 5 people(using the unique referral code) before the downloads unlock. So to test it, I use the hidemyass proxy with different IP's.

    I mean like a very low quality backlink to my site.

    done elaborating.. really sorry my english is bad :(

    yup I think that too since the proxies are at public...

    I can't possibly imagine how testing a script on your site (related to tracking users/referrers) can hurt your SERPs.. unless it appears to be a hacked or malicious site.
    Other than that, I think you're all good.

    No matter how powerful you think Google is, they cant see the IP you use to post a link! Unless you posted it to one of their properties that is.
