The battle to reach the first page of Google is a fierce one. Webmasters and marketers are working hard to rank in top spots from where their websites will generate a large volume of traffic. In this battle, webmasters can employ powerful tools such as automation tools and SEO proxies. They can use them either to scrape search engines or automate SEO tasks. All with the intent or reaching top spots in search engines.
COMMON USE OF SEO PROXIES
SEO proxies are commonly used to automate certain tasks or to scrape search engines for keyword relevant blogs and forums. Once these domains are identified, webmasters will post short bits of content with their keyword and backlinks pointing to their website.
They are performing these tasks to create a backlink profile through which their websites will start ranking in search engines. However, the use of SEO proxies is not limited to scraping and posting backlinks. There are other uses for which webmasters and marketers can use their SEO proxies to rank and diversify their backlink profile.
1. USE SEO PROXIES FOR MEDIUM
Marketers can use their SEO proxies for medium. Medium is a blogging platform on which marketers can write and share long-form stories. And in these stories, marketers can sprinkle keywords and links towards their website.
Medium is a great tool because it checks most SEO boxes. A keyword is displayed in the article’s links, title and content. Also, webmasters can organize their articles on keywords.
Marketers must use SEO proxies for medium to create multiple accounts and post with different articles. We must mention that SEO proxies can be used because medium is a relatively new platform and cheap shared proxies for SEO can be used to create accounts. Thus, besides posting their content on forums and blog comments, webmasters can also post it on medium.
2. SEO PROXIES AND QUORA
Another great domain on which webmasters can use their SEO proxies is Quora. The question and answer platform allow posting links in the answers of these questions. The use of proxies becomes more visible when webmasters want to generate both questions and answers.
They need to post their questions by using proxies, thus simulating real behavior. Proxies are needed to post the question from one account (IP) and the answer by another account (another IP or proxy). Thus, avoiding account blocks for situations such as those when the question and answer are posts from the same IP.
3. JOURNAL YOUR BACKLINKS ON PENZU
Another great tool where you can use your proxies and develop a similar strategy to medium is penzu.com, a journaling website.
At penzu.com users can create a journal and share it online. Thus, creative webmasters will use SEO proxies to create multiple accounts from where to post content with backlinks towards their websites.
4. SECOND TIER SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
One thing that we do not recommend is using SEO proxies to create social media accounts. However, this general recommendation can be broken down. And a better advice is to not create accounts through SEO proxies for first tier social media platforms. First tier platforms are the popular social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. On which the use of SEO proxies is prohibited.
Moreover, these platforms are very restrictive and will probably block most SEO proxies. Thus, it is recommended using social media proxies instead of SEO proxies.
However, webmasters can use SEO proxies to create accounts on 2nd tier social media platforms such as Tumblr, a less used social media/blogging platform. Here, they can post content with links towards their websites and improve their SEO score.
To rank, they need proxies to create multiple accounts and increase the volume of links posted.
5. BUSINESS DIRECTORIES
Many webmasters will disregard using business directories for their project’s SEO. However, these directories can be a powerful tool which marketers can leverage.
The need for SEO proxies is visible when creating multiple accounts and listings for a website. Another feature presented by these directories is their keyword populated content. Their content and setup make it clear both for users and search engines what is the domain/niche of a certain website.
TO WRAP UP
Webmasters and marketers must use their SEO proxies in the classic way of scraping search engines for relevant blog posts and forums where to post their content. However, with a bit of imagination, webmasters can use these SEO proxies to create multiple accounts and leverage other platforms. Using these platforms will create a competitive advantage for webmasters. An advantage which will be reflected in their website’s backlink profile and ranking.
