Why do we change IP address when performing SEO-related tasks?
To avoid footprints.
It's one method to try to hide your footprints.
To get access to blocked resources, if your IP is banned already.
When you're doing massive scraping tasks you should switch your IP often to avoid bombarding the same site with requests from the same IP.
It's a good way to hide your footprint from previous work and it's a great way to revive a dead website. If you have an aged Domain then it's a good idea to change email address if you're planning to revive it for its old keywords (I'm currently working on an older website atm).
As most of the others have said, avoiding footprints. Also if you are based overseas, it is much easier to use a US IP for many SEO-related tasks.
Thanks to all for the input

It's because people don't want to be tracked down and to bypass a certain website where they already been blocked so they can appear anonymously.
It is a good way of hiding your footprints.
Because if you post to a lot of sites with same ip, it could result in blocking access to site with that ip..
