    Ive got a little blog network and I use various google accounts with WMT and G+ etc on it.

    I today noticed that the ip result given by whatsmyip.org is different to the one google shows in the instant results if you type "whats my ip".
    In fact google was showing my real external ip which is static so i remember it.

    I freaked out a little bit first blamed my proxies and tried HMA but it still shows my real ip in the instant results
    In fact everything I tried (web wise) said the proxys were working fine, same for HMA.

    I then noticed google only showed my real ip while logged in so I checked the account.

    It seems at some point either my proxy failed or possibly i was drunk and just forgot lol which showed the my real IP to google. Now when im logged in regardless of what IP I use google is ignoring it for the real one. Sneeky buggers.

    Anyway what im tring to lead up to is how worried should I be that Ive linked all my accounts together and so exposing my little blog network Ive been working on for so long :(

    What steps would be wise to minimize any potential problems now? Just delete the WMT accounts and the .html file on the servers?

    Only worry when you have a real problem. Don't worry about this

    This.

    Big G will just get after you if a) you are big or b) your way of creating your network is very similar to a big network such that you get caught by the respective algorithm.

    Generally you may check the anonymity of a proxy with the charon proxy checker. You will find that the vast minority of proxies, i.e. found by scrapebox are in fact anonymous.
