Class B Address Space Rental

Because I will still have a lease on the IP blocks I use, and own the equipment, I’ve decided to offer the following:

Anyone interested in the class B block I will lease the proxies to you for $0.10 per IP. There are a total of 249 class Cs. The total is $6,374.4

You will be the only person able to use those 62,000+ IPs for the specific purpose / sites you provide.

Email me if you are interested, and the list of sites you’d want it for. You can do specific domains, or specific companies. Feel free to ask any additional questions as well.

You will be the only one using the whole class B block for that purpose. There will be no overlap allowed. So it will remain good for as long as you don’t burn it out.

It will be on a monthly basis. I won’t force any sort of long term contracts or anything,

The Difference between HTTP and HTTPS

SearchScrape proxies have now been upgraded to support HTTPS along with HTTP. But what does this mean, exactly?

 

What is HTTP and HTTPS?

HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. This is used by computers to communicate with each other, and has been common place for a while. The issue with this mode of transportation is that it isn’t secure. If there is any system in between the two communicating computers, it can easily read the data passing between them. HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) is designed to make the process that HTTP already ran, more safe. Critical data such as passwords and other user information can be transferred safely back and forth with little risk of it being discovered. How is this done? HTTPS uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates to lock up the information between communicating servers. The systems on both end agree on a code that only they can both understand. This means that even if information is intercepted by a malicious system, it would be read as complete nonsense and be unusable. Once the information reaches the other end, it is translated back into a usable code. So, what does this mean for proxies? Having HTTPS proxies basically lets you use SearchScrape proxies in more places, and therefore allowing more security and freedom for your anonymous proxy.

Secure yourself with Proxies!

It internet is a fantastic place. You can search for anything you might need, meet people with the same interests, sell your products to a massive audience and stay connected on a constant basis. It can also be a dangerous place, as well. There are always people looking to track you down, steal your identity, take your credit card numbers, remove your sites, or even in the worst-case-scenario, to track you down and find you in person. That’s why you need security. Something that can act as a shield or a cloak between you and the malicious intruders that would like to know where and who you are. Securing yourself with proxies can be one of the best ways to keep yourself hidden as you browse the internet. Imagine it as walking through the city with a whole new name, face, and personality. Using a different IP addresses, site will no longer be able to track you, and people will assume you are someone different every new IP. These IPs can make it look like you live in the U.S., the U.K., India, and any other place you can imagine! You can receive search results from very specific location, and ward off people in your area from finding you can possibly affecting you in a negative way. There are several different products that allow for multiple IP addresses, as well. For someone with a smaller budget, needing only a few, there are many products on SearchScrape for both the little guy, and the massive corporations that need several hundred IPs.

Proxies integration with web browsers

Proxies are given to customers form private proxy providers, who maintain large servers containing thousands of random IP addresses. These proxies aren’t linked to all sorts of areas, in many countries and are designed to hide the customer’s identity from the internet. These proxies have instructions that allow the customers access to use them through certain programs such as web browers. Every web browser gives someone the option to browse the internet through a proxy connection. This allows anonymity and secure web page connection that can prove useful for information gathering and safe site browsing. There are many advanced options within every web browser that allow for you to add information for a proxy server to operate as your IP. Each browser has a slightly different operation to get this working. You can view SearchScrape’s instructions to set up proxies for some of the most common web browsers in the world today, at the Proxy Instruction page

Uses for proxies

Proxies have uses in all sorts of situations. With the world becoming more and more connected through the internet, and more businesses are merging within it as well. Of course, with all of this connection, security is of huge importance to both the businesses, and the users. Businesses can use proxies to shield their company’s network during extensive usage, to avoid the millions, if not billions of malware and tracking software that can link to your IP address. When a large company uses heaps of data and go through information, chances of tracking or having your privacy invaded increases. Proxies can shield your identity from all of these intruders.

This also is an importance for a customer or someone just roaming the internet for their own personal uses. Internet business sometimes trace your IP and keep an eye on what you’re doing, what you’re buying, and may to try and advertise things for you to see in hopes you’ll buy their products. Some other people can trace you IP for more malicious purposes as well. That’s why a proxy can be used for security and with websites that you don’t want bombarding you with information and tracking you.

How proxies affects internet searches

If you use the internet a lot, and visit a lot of social sites and search engines like Google, you’ll start to find advertisements appearing that relate very closely to some of your recent searches. This same idea is also used across Google, but more subtly. Based off of your previous search queries, and even your place of residence, Google changes it’s results to hopefully give you something related to what you like. This is a useful feature, and many people enjoy this aspect of newer search engines. But for people running a large online business, this can be not helpful for several reasons. Large businesses usually have a network or team of people dedicated to finding out more about competing businesses or to learn more about how they stack up in the line. If many people are working from a network, they will appear as a single IP. As they look more for more information, the results will quickly skew and change, and will begin to differentiate from something a customer might find searching for your company’s product the first time. Having a pool of anonymous IPs allows for each search to appear as a first search, forcing Google to give you completely unbiased information. IPs can even be disguised to appear as a computer system from another country, which can give companies valuable information on how they appear to customers overseas. Anonymous proxy packages allow for business to be more prepared for the future. If you are interested in anonymous proxies visit SearchScrapes Order Form!

Secure VPNs

VPN stands for a Virtual Private Network. Many companies that involve online business, data centers and others that need heavy security for their internet needs can use a VPN. A virtual private network is a system that can be purchased from many different places on the web. It works as a tunnel for your IP to browse through, encrypting any data that you come into contact with. The goal is to work almost like an anonymous proxy, except by creating almost a firewall that protects you and your business network. This is different from a proxy, which allows you to pick from a random pool of IPs to lose your trace. A VPN covers up your IP address and secures it by encrypting everything going in and out. Which one of these would be better for you?

Proxies

What is a proxy server?

Computers work by requesting and collecting information from other servers and networks. When you enter a query or click a link, your computer is sending a request to the server that hosts the site of the chosen query. Once it gets a request, the host site sends the information to your computer. But there are also some other things that happen behind the scenes that the user might not know about.

First off, search engines record activity from your IP address and track it, and changes the results to your next search query based off of your previous searches. While most people might find this feature helpful, some wish to have completely unbiased searches, either to collect more information for their SEO campaign, or to find products not related to previous purchases. While Google might use your information about you and your IP address to provide more helpful results to searches, some sites record your activity for more malicious activities. This is where a proxy, (or anonymous proxy, or highly anonymous proxy) comes in. The proxy works as a middle man for your requests, blocking the way between you and the host server. When you make a search, and click a link, you send the request to the proxy. The proxy then covers up your name/IP address, and passes the anonymized request on to the host server. This way, you can still get the request, but have an anonymous proxy protecting your identity. Businesses use anonymous proxies, and purchase lots of IPs unrelated to that network, so businesses that scrape through massive amounts of internet requests a day can get results unaffected by any added features from Search Engines.

Whitehat/Blackhat SEO

Whitehat SEO

The term “Whitehat” in the SEO world refers to tactics that benefit the site reader instead of cutting corners to make it to the front page of a search engine. It requires designing sites that are user-friendly, with content rich pages and lots of relevant keywords. This is a strategy used by sites that are in it for the long haul. Gaining the amount of organic views to push your site to the front page of Google can take quite a while. Though with time and patience, Whitehat SEO definitely works. It’s a long term plan that follows the guidelines of Google and requires intelligent web design and writing related to page content.

Blackhat SEO

“Blackhat” is a term used for unethical SEO strategies. This is used by sites trying to make a profit as quickly as possible, by cutting corners or tricking readers. These sites are not usually user-friendly, and if these tactics are caught by Google, the site in question will be deindexed from the search engine entirely. Some techniques use blog farms, which is an accumulation of hundreds, sometimes thousands of blogs. These blogs are all related in information to the site which makes the money, and each of these blogs is laid out to link to the profit site eventually. Page switching is also common, where a company will create a site that seems to have no affiliation with their profit system, allow it to gain a higher reputation on Google and then completely swap that site out with the sales page. Google has swift punishments for whoever uses Blackhat SEO strategies, and sometimes Google attempts to just remove the ability to cut corners entirely. Google is constantly changing the algorithm that decides what results are given for search queries. A tactic that would have been seen a few years ago by sites was having their preferred keyword plastered in as many pages on their site as possible. Google used to pick sites that had the highest frequency of the searched keyword, but as people began to take advantage of this by overusing keywords, Google cut this feature out of their algorithm.
