    All - I am operating from Non-US territory, and i want to create profile as if I am in the US.

    What is the best way to pose as if I am operating from the US ? Proxy or VPN ??

    Proxy are sometimes pain, hence, if any one could plz share VPN experience - I would be very thank full.

    Also kindly tell me which VPN provider should I go for

    Thanks a Ton
    Cheers

    I have used proxies in the past, but currently using VPN.
    Proxies have their "live time limit", you have to mess with your net browser settings or you have to use third party software for all your traffic to be sent through proxy.
    With VPN you have stable connection (99.9% of time with great speed, depends on company you choose though). You don't need to use any extra software or mess with browser settings.

    IMO VPN is better and most of the time cheeper than using proxies. I'm currently using blackVPN service it's free, but you have to get invited to be able to use it. Search google, you might find some giveaway codes, well I found it this way...
    Cheers!

    If you need encryption to avoid blocks in your country (china as example) a VPN is the best choice.
    If you don't need that you'll want a normal proxy.
    It's easier to use and you can easily switch your IP with them.

    VPN's are fat

    Vpns are cool if you need ips not just for the browser but for some programs also. Just a server switch-IP change takes 3-4 min :S if i could have a soft that does it auto that would be the better. im using VPNs now, but for posting on cl its better to use proxies

    Who do you guys suggest for proxies. I can't seem to find a quality service, I'm willing to pay for good (fast) proxies.

    Check out my private proxy sale thread for www.seo-proxies.com

    The speed is full 100mbps.
    The IPs are from US on multiple subnetworks.
    Your IPs have never been used before, they are as clean as they can be.
    + A nice webtool for easy proxy control, both SOCKS and HTTP protocols, easy to use API with free source code examples in php and imacros ,+++ ;)

    That way of typing is just ridiculous.

    IF you need this type of VPN.. http://www.vpnlab.ru
    Rather expensive though. There's cheaper ones.
