    Hi everyone, I am currently using 25 private proxies for general scraping and keyword ranking purposes.

    I understand that I can use them for:
    1) Reverse proxy for caching my static contents on my website (essentially working as a CDN)
    2) Purchasing and scalping tickets

    Does anyone use them for other purposes?

    (Like generating views & plays?)

    Please enlighten me.

    If those are general purpose private proxies, you can use them for several things, but you can't use them for mailing (port 25 is blocked, although webmailing is supported sometimes) or hardcore spamming with Xrumer for instance. Those are rules most proxy providers have for their proxies. Apart form that there are a lot of opportunities in social media, you can manage a set of 25-100 accs on any site, where those proxies are working. How to know if they will work or not? You can either try it or ask the provider.

    Ticket sites most of the time have special needs and your proxies may not work there. You can try nevertheless.

    Generating views? With 25 proxies? :) Even if you can do it technically, that amount is just too low to bother with.

    The answer that I needed, thank you!

    Creating social media accounts will be another field to branch out then...

    This is the most straight forward way of using your proxies.

    Starting costs are minimal, you need a social media automation tool and a VPS. (aprox 35-40 USD per month).

    For accounts, you can create them yourself, use hotmail as a email provider. (this is the most time consuming part at the beginning of your journey).
