STOP Doing These Things! Top 8 Reasons WHY Your Accounts and PVA's Die a Cruel and Untimely Death! (Pt. 1) Due to the size and scope of what I want to go into with this thread (and the attention span of you guys seeing a HUGE post) I will be breaking this into 3 parts (3 Now, Then another 3, then the last 2 points) In the many years we have been in the IM field I have seen and observed LITERALLY hundreds of mistakes made with accounts and phone verified accounts by our customers. ALL preventable had advice been heeded and a little common sense used. Our Experience Applies to Most EVERY Account Type (See at the bottom if you want to know if this thread applies to your particular account type.) Know this though: These principles are UNIVERSAL and will apply to MOST Account Types! Let's get into it: 1. Not Using Good Quality or a Sufficient # of Proxies: Ahhh Proxies...the boon of many a Internet Marketer's accounts. This is divided into two parts: Bad Proxies and Insufficient # of Proxies. Having high quality proxies that you are logging into your accounts with is the foundational backbone of protecting your accounts. It doesn't make your accounts invincible so they can be abused at your disposal, but what it does do is it protects your accounts from being connected together by the spam algorithm of the website that you're logging into. Should this happen they will either shut your account down or ask you for reverification (essentially the same thing). All accounts when they are created should be created with unique US IP addresses/Proxies (if it's a US based website) and likewise when you use your accounts we recommend Unique US Ip Addresses (preferably Private Proxies) Having a sufficient number of proxies is equally as important. Having an insufficient number of proxies will cause your accounts to be connected together and shut down for using the same IP address too often. Using more than one account per proxy essentially creates a chain between those two accounts(or more) connecting them together. If this is caught, not just one account will get shut down...BOTH will be shut down. That is why it it important to test the particular account type you are using to see how many accounts you can use per proxy before they get shut down. The starting place of this testing shouldALWAYS be 1 acct per proxy. You can increase this as you discover where the threshold lies. (More on proper proxy usage and methodology later). 2. Not Clearing Your Cookies and Flash Cookies Like Proxies, cookies are just what they sound like....cookie crumbs that connect you and your computer to the account you are using. These are stored on your computer just by simply going to a website with your browser or using a browser based software that visits a website. If you do not clear these cookie crumbs in between each account login you are again connecting these accounts together, making it very easy for that websites spam algorithin to see that you are one user using 2 or 3 or 10 accounts. Solution? Clear your cookies and flash cookies using the better privacy addon for your browser (this may be Firefox only, but don't quote me) or by using CCleaner free software to delete cookies and flash cookies. 3. Using Poorly Coded or Planned Software or Bots. EVERYBODY (especially if they are trying to sell you the software. will say their software is SAFE. BUT in my many years experience this isn't true. Here's Why: Alot of software and bots are NOTORIOUS for leaving trails behind that are easy to track, connect and get your accounts shut down. One way is because these softwares use browsers in them and they don't program the software/bot to clear the cookies or flash cookies of the browser being used within the software. One of the other LESS PONDERED reasons is because the developer didn't think things through when they designed the software. These website's spam algorithm are very intricate and complex. They aren't dumb. For the MOST part algorithms of websites are looking for unnatural usage trends in accounts. AKA things that look like spam. And software/bot developers who don't think things through design their programs that act in unnatural ways...IE they don't act the way a normal user would act.. (MUCH more on this later) Another factor that spells danger for software and bots when it comes to your accounts is that software and bots sometimes aren't well thought out. Their actions are mapped out logically and efficiently but our browsing is illogical and inefficient. When we browse we don't take Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, Step 4, Step 5 in each and every page we visit. We instead click a page, browse some...click another page...browse some....stare into space pondering the mating habits of Ewoks....oh yeah then click to another page. But most software's by their very nature are programmed to take certain actions in a certain order, time after time after time....all of which can be eventually pinpointed and targeted causing your accounts to get shut down. Also realize alot of social networks are predominantly MOBILE networks, and desktop actions(on a software or bot) may be under extra scrutiny moreso than mobile actions. (Hopefully this article will come across the desk of a few software developers who apply it!) Another factor in software that spells potential disaster for your accounts is the fact that websites purposefully and frequently update their sites and spam algorithms. And if you purchase a piece of software that is understaffed, underexperienced or time poor they will not be able to keep up with the frequent demand of updating their software constantly as things change. Leaving you holding the bag and your accounts in jeopardy. Before you send hate mail....not all software is like this. BUT be very careful if you value your accounts (and money) because badly programmed software will eat a hole in your pocket and time that is lost in buying or creating new accounts all the time. Now also you know what to think about before purchasing a software that needs accounts to function....(Hopefully this thread will come across the desk of a few software developers who apply it to make better software and less headaches!) Thats all for this thread...parting is such sweet sorrow! (HACK!) Stay tuned for Part 2...I will type it up as soon as time permits...be prepared to take this account preservation methodology and philosophy even deeper in future threads.
