    You have to do it with your browser. Go to advanced settings in your browser and put in your IP. If it needs a user name and pass word, enter that as well. Just Google how to use proxy in IE, Chrome, Firefox etc. It is pretty simple.

    Also, if you are using tools like Scrapebox, Ultimate Niche Finder, and Traffic Travis among others, you will need proxies. Each of these has a place in their settings to enter proxy info.

    There is also a post here by one of the mods with step by step instructions per your browser.

    You need to run it through a proxy judge. Proxy judges also test each proxy differently, so you really will need to come up with a consistent plan that works for you each time. I use Proxy Multiply for public proxies, and I have it constantly test them to keep my list up to date. Public proxies usually die fast, but they are free. You pay for private, but they stay alive as long as you don't overuse them and get them banned,

    Also, you're going to need to learn about public vs. private proxies if you haven't yet. They each serve pretty specific purposes, so looking into it first will help avoid hassle when you really get going with stuff.

    Yes i have read up on proxies quite a bit, is there any proxy judge services that are free and maybe through websites? I would not think it would be hard to test to see if a proxy is bad, one thing i do not need is more software lol
