    Dear BHW Community!

    I do have a few questions about proxies and I really hope some of you guys can point me to the right direction and let me know what exactly I need.

    I coded an online software where people can buy one of our plans and have access to our Dashboard where our customers can do specific requests. Here are a few examples what our customers can do:

    1) Website-Analysis: enter a domain and get all relevant data like WHOIS, alexa rank, global rank, similarweb data, moz data top keywords for that domain, backlinks, ********/nofollow links

    2) Social Network-Analysis: how many likes, shares comments from social network plattforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Xing, Reddit, Pinterest, StumbleUpon

    3) Malware Scan: check websites on google safe browser, mcafee,norton and AVG

    4) Keywords: keywords position tracking, keyword analysis, keyword auto suggestions

    and much more....

    Our software is currently at beta status and we do all our requests with our current server IP! Once we go live and once we have a few hundred customers this may lead to an IP ban and we want to solve this issue already before our IP gets banned.

    I know that I need private proxies for this but I never worked with proxies before therefore I have no idea what exactly I am going to need?

    At my proxy settings at my admin panel I am able to enter:
    - Proxy
    - Proxy Port
    - Proxy Username
    - Proxy Password!

    Now you guys know for what I need those proxies. I need them for many requests to Google and/or all social media websites. Can someone explain me which provider I should choose, what exactly I am going to need and what I have to take care off?

    Please let me know if you need more information!

    Thanks in advance,

    the proxies are needed for:
    4) Keywords: keywords position tracking, keyword analysis, keyword auto suggestions

    after a few searches on search engines you will get a temp blocked with captcha, after a few captcha you will get a temp ban.
    so you will have to think delays/sleep and also to use private proxies

    For data-intensive and scraping purposes like this, rotating residential proxies would definitely be best. With a fresh USA IP to scrape with every 5 minutes, you can avoid bans / captchas like you'd see with datacenter proxies. The biggest advantage is that you'd never have to change or replace rotating residential proxies.
