    Has anyone experienced using shared versus private proxies? I'm contemplating buying private proxies.

    Some input would be nice!

    Private proxies provide higher speed and reliability, and generally give better results as you'll get better submission rates etc. But public are free and there are always loads available...

    It depends on what you're using them for! If it's a one-time throw-away then public can be fine as long as the software has good proxy checking.

    What for? If for building backlinks, then private proxies. Share proxies are not worth it. They are often too slow or down, they become counter productive.

    I've been using Shared Proxies for quite some time now. The difference would be the speed only. Usually that isn't even a factor. If you're going for SB then go for shared, if Other type of links then go for Private.

    Private proxies are generally faster and much more reliable since they are only available to you and no one else.
    Whereas shared proxies are usually shared between 5 users thus making them slower and not so reliable, however, they are much cheaper than private proxies.

    Is it better to use private ones instead of shared proxies? It depends on your needs/usage.
