Google Perma Banning Private Proxy IP Ranges

As is common knowledge online, as of late google has been banning IPs more heavily.  However recently the cracked down even more and are now Permanently banning some private proxy IP ranges.  I actually had a IP range with a private proxy provider that was perma banned in June.  I explained it the provider and they just didn’t know what was causing it and moved on.

Your Private Proxy, however, has identified the issue and has spear headed an effort to identify the proxies that are being banned and take corrective action.  I Hope that other private proxy providers follow in their footsteps.  I “assume” that the big players will, but this will be some defining times for the smaller players, who will rise to the top as quality providers?  I don’t know, but we will soon find out.

Here is the news item that YPP posted:

Closed YPP July Changes

2012-07-10 00:00:00

Ypp had to close today 5 servers due to the recent changes on google, more than 53 cbocks are permanently blocked by google so we are forced to cancel these 5 servers and all the ip ranges from these servers. Each subscription with proxies from these 5 servers are replaced automaticaly by our system. Due to this changes our qurantine is now reseted and all the ip’s are checked again on google at a certain interval of time, this imply the posibility to receive some blocked proxies due to the automatically replacement of proxies, in case you encounter errors like 403,503 please open a new support ticket to allow us to que your ticket for replacement, we will replace your proxies as soon as we release proxies from our qurantine ( max 24/48 hours.). We still have some ip ranges blocked that will be removed very soon, in the next phase of our project. This dosen’t mean that this is the end of ypp, all this changes are made to clean our proxies and to offer better services to our clients, new servers and new locations will be available in a short time. Thank you for your understanding! We apologize for any inconvenience that we caused to you. Update: July 11. More than 6000 fresh new proxies will be available in the next 24 hours. We apologize for this delay.

Scapebox and Scrapejet Post Penguin

I got a lot of tweets, emails and other messages asking if scrapebox and scrapejet are safe to use after penguin.  In this video I talk about the majority of what Penguin is alleged to have covered.  I say alleged because google said that it also targeted relevance, and many have said it targeted link velocity as well.

I don’t talk about link velocity as its easy enough to just slow down and be consistent. As for relevance, there is still tests going on in the marketplace, and I don’t have solid info on it yet.  I can say that it seems like it would be very hard for google to track relevance in a way thats not manipulable.  For instance, if you have a domain name that has the word widgets in it and you have a site title and keyword on page a few times with the word widget in it, google is going to think your site is about widgets.  When it might be a CPA lead for ringtones that takes place in graphic form.   Point being, unless your site gets a manual review, your still dealing with a computer.  So you just have to look like everyone else does to the computer.

So in short, if you were doing it  and using tools the right way from the get go, then you didn’t have any issues.  If you were doing it wrong then you now have the chance to change.  You can use automated tools and do it right and look natural.

Also some people had asked me for auto approve lists in conjunction with this.  So if you are looking for that you can find all the current lists I have here:
