    I am looking to buy some private proxies and just not sure about a couple of things.

    If I buy 10 proxies from buyproxies[dawt]org to use in software and bots, wouldn't it still leave a large footprint if all traffic was coming from 10 IP's ?

    Second question - is 10 enough ?

    Am I missing something here ?

    The answer to both your questions is - It actually depends on how aggressively you use your bots.

    Your question really depends on a lot of unanswered things, such as what you'll be doing on the bots, what platform you'll be botting on, etc. I'll answer with my experience with xGram/Instagram:

    • If you use proxies that are non-sequential and on different subnets, you won't leave a footprint, as the IPs will be in different ranges (i.e. 10 distinct and distant computers)
    • 10 proxies on xGram would get you about 50 accounts. That means, manage 5 different accounts on 1 proxy, but only create about 1-2 accounts per day on 1 proxy.
    Also, I've never heard anything about that site, but I have a highly recommended proxy provider in the xGram toolkit link in my sig.

    At this point I plan on using "Intelligent Traffic Bot" by "General Lee" and either SEnuke or Ultimate Demon.
    Do you think 10 proxies be enough for such a traffic bot if I was sending around 1000 hits per day ? Most important thing is natural metrics for GA .
    5 accounts per day should be fine. Starting off slow.

    For fake traffic you need a lot more than 10 private proxies. I suggest using public proxies. Also, if you plan on creating 5 accounts per day/site using Senuke/UD then you would need a bit more than 10 private proxies. If 5 accounts is all you meant on different sites than 10 private proxies should do the job for you.

    OK so using public proxies won't cause any issues with GA ?

    Thanks for the advice!
