    I'm using PTR Traffic booster behind a HMA Pro VPN to score links from Tumblr to help with seo and drive a little traffic from Tumblr to my sites with ads on them. After a week it's going pretty well, with about 1500 total unique hits a day from 50 accounts. I'm not sure if that's good or not. Seems good from where I'm sitting.

    I usually have a single IP connection through HMA that logs into about 50 accounts (one at a time) and works the magic. Now that I spent all the time to set it all up, I really don't want to lose all my accounts that I worked so hard for because a single IP is detected and all accounts are banned.

    1. Does this banning happen?
    2. Am I better off with a proxy?
    3. Do I need a separate proxy for every account?

    Please post your feedbacks and horror stories.

    You'll never know until you're banned. Do things on your account that look human, and don't be too aggressive.

    Hmm does the HMA VPN randomize your IP or something? How does that work?

    I'm convinced SEO is 99% lore / 1% fact, but here's what "I've" come to know. Flash-enabled browsers can be spotted even with a clean proxy/cache/cookie profile. If Tumblr can do it I presume others can (and do) as well. Take this to the bank as one of those 1% facts. Here's some lore I will pass around (opinion)- SEO d-day begins when they start storing, hashing and cross-referencing browser fingerprints. SEO truly goes underground at this point but those clever enough to operate under the radar will see a golden age of near impunity :) mark my words..

    I've been getting along great since December with private/dedicated proxies and a flash blocker add-on w/Firefox.

    1. oh hell yes..
    2. dunno..works for me though.
    3. I've logged into as many as 3 test accounts from the same IP on the same day without getting banned..not sure my test was diligent enough to say that's ok though. Me personally I use dedicated private proxies for my "good" accounts and shared proxies for less important ones, but I don't share any any accounts across IPs. You also have to consider the entropy associated with sharing accounts/IPs, i.e. you may not get banned immediately but they may get flagged as "suspicious" and banned later along with your hard work.

    Hope this helps you or someone.

    You asked if the HMA VPN randomizes IP... No I don't think it does. I wrote several pages of commentary and examples but I can't post a long thread or send a PM due to the forum restrictions on new members. But the short answer is, no.

    the main problem with HMA and social media websites its their ips are shared between their users, even if you do nothing wrong you can still get banned, so my recommendation its to use dedicated ips (dedicated proxies).
    Using a single ip to connect to 50 accounts and not get banned ? its remains a mystery to me.
