    Hi,

    At the moment I am using HMA with google search bot, but I am thinking of buying proxies because I would also like to try scrapebox and stop my subscription to HMA.

    What is the difference between HMA and having a list of shared proxies to work with? Do these proxies have always the same IP? Are they going to be google passed?

    Also, what is the difference between shared and private proxies?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    HMA are your normal open/public proxies. That means that everyone who's bought their lifetime subscription has access to them. As long as they've been around, I wouldn't be surprised if that number is well over 10,000 by now if not much higher than that. Obviously not all of those ppl actively use the proxies but the amount of people that do is still very very big. Shared proxies are proxies that are normally high-anon L1 IPs that you typically buy a subscription to. Most of the time that list is shared between 10 or 15 other users, depending on how many people have signed up for the same package and how many different IPs the company has to offer. Private proxies are supposed to be just that, private. If you're dealing with a reputable company that actually understands how to operate a successful business, then you'll be the only one accessing those IPs/proxies at any given time during your subscription. That means that during the 30 days you've paid for those proxies no one else should be using them or even be able to connect to them, thus making them your own private proxies.

    I understand that you would like to start using SB. If so, private proxies is a must, nothing less!

    Shared Proxies - Meaning the IPs are shared with two or more people. This kind of IP is easily detected, it's the type that barely can scrape from Google because the big G will see it as sending too many traffic.

    Private Proxies - IPs are yours alone leaving little to no footprint.

    Thanks for all the answers. However what I don't get is if I buy a pack of 25 proxies, then those IPs will remain the same for ever, right? Then I can't have the flexibility that HMA offers with a big amount of different IPs that changes daily.

    Isn't this a problem?

    Most of proxy providers changes/updates your ip list every 30 days normally many are there of line that such as for eg buyproxies.org so far i know.
