Hi, is using VPN or different IP safe when creating web 2.0 properties?

I was reading some threads, some say different IP not required and some say it's good to have VPN. Even Nathan gotch on his article regarding Web 2.0 mentioned to use VPN.

Do you use VPN when creating web 2.0 for your main site?

If it's Google property like Blogger or Google Sites, yes, you should be hiding your footprint with some sort of VPN
If not (like wordpress.com) it doesn't care much.

You only need to use a VPN when creating Web 2.0's if you are going to be creating more than 2-3 from each Web 2.0 property

For example, if you were just creating one or two each of Wordpress.com, Tumblr.com, Ello.co , hatenablog.com , mystrikingly.com, webador.com etc . - you would NOT need to use a VPN or proxy....

If , however, you were planning on busting out 15 weebly.com, 10 website2.me's, 10 over-blog.com etc from the same computer - yes proxies and /or vpn become necessary or you will just get all of your accounts flagged by the individual platforms based on account creation velocity - a dead givaway for spam...

Has nothing to do with Google or Web 2.0's being in any way risky

You only need a VPN so that Web 2.0 is not blocked because the providers do not allow multiple accounts. It makes sense at the provider level, but has no impact on SEO (unless it's about blogspots, etc.).

Its always better to use a VPN when you deal with multiple properties
Use something like Windscribe

There are 2 reasons why people mention VPN/proxies to created web2.0's.

One is related to staying hidden from google. This applies to its own properties (blogspot for ex) mostly.

The other reason is when you create tons of web2.0's on the same platform, you need new footprints (ip, cookies).
