Conducting big-scale SEO operations is virtually impossible without the use of reliable 4G proxies.
SEO is about data, and collecting huge amounts of data while automatically dumping them into workable spreadsheets can be done in a lot of ways. There are very reliable tools online that can do that for you. However, they are created around specific rules that only let you access certain data that is publicly available anyways or is kind of inconsequential depending on what you’re after.
I don’t blame them. These tools work with the one-size-fits-all approach to appeal to the largest audiences. They tend to leave out more specific sets of data that might be useful or not depending on your overall strategy. That means that, for those who work with very narrow niches or are after highly specific information, the only option is to use bots that relentlessly trawl thousands of pages per second.
The problem is that most websites have anti-bot measures to prevent data theft or DDoS attacks. Sometimes they just put these measures in place to make sure real users have a seamless experience when navigating their pages or have a fair shot at making a purchase.
Regardless of the reason, request limits on IPs can grind any data aggregation task to a halt.
Here is where proxies can save the day.
Many people frown upon proxies and bots as hacks. But, remember that search engines and digital platforms all depend on proxies and bots or web crawlers to automatically scrape the internet. And they are located in many parts of the world so they only show local users a version of a website or data that is relevant to them.
Why not use the same solution for your business then?
If you´re conducting a large-scale SEO campaign, you need to constantly monitor your websites and verify that your ads are displaying correctly. The old-fashioned way was to hire people in each region you were targeting for verification. You can think of a thousand ways that could go wrong, and cost you more money than you are willing to fork out.
So, due to their low cost and ease of access, data center proxies soon became part and parcel of SEO efforts. They were quickly adopted to gather competitive intelligence and formulate sound pricing strategies.
However, many websites adopted measures to block IP addresses that didn’t come from residential venues and put up limits to requests. They also came up with clever tactics like honeypot pages to mislead bots and derail any data-gathering effort. Datacenter proxies were thus rendered kind of useless for certain automated SEO tasks.
The best proxies in 2020 for SEO purposes are 4G proxies as they offer a lot of flexibility, great speed for automated tasks and are very hard to detect and block. They have allowed us to gather actionable information for ourselves and our clients reliably.
The best part is that even if they get caught, websites generally are reluctant to block them as they are being used by thousands of other legit users simultaneously.
Mobile proxies have proven to work wonderfully with most data-gathering bots in the market, and software like Jarvee, for those who manage multiple social media accounts as part of their marketing campaign.
Their pricing has also gone down as new 4G mobile proxy players enter the market with ever more powerful servers. Our signature systems depend on 4G proxies located all around the world and have incredibly high uptime and reliability rates.
There is nothing wrong with using regular SEO tools for clients who are happy with a more traditional approach. But if you are serious about offering SEO services, nothing beats robust a 4G proxy service at your side.
