    why use VPN? i have never used VPN for SEO purpose.
    no need to use VPN. some forum sites will ban your account if your IP will keep changing.

    so avoid such thing in SEO.

    A virtual private network gives you online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public Internet connection.

    VPN is good for SEO purpose you should not ignore, the potential benefit of a virtual private network (VPN) on SEO strategies. There are numerous areas that an organization should need to target. For instance, you can be in Australia and need to target India. In any case, in the event that you complete a quick Google search, so it shows the local result of your located country, not the targeted country. So if you are located in multiple areas then VPN will helpful.

    I don't think it will be a good strategy for your website to use VPN. I don't use VPN for any of my websites so far.

    VPNs are usually very useful when you need to check rankings of your keyword from different locations. If you're holding your services in US and want to target Canada or want to check the ranking status from their then VPN will be good.

    Thus, some paid tools can also help you in checking them from different locations but VPNs work more specific.

    You will get different IP address when you are using VPN. It helps you to bypass some geolocation application such as search engine etc.


    However, you can be detected as behind VPN. There are 3rd party lists like IP2Proxy that is available for subscription.

    Depends why you need it, but IMO, it's a great tool for SEO while doing research. My personal favourite provider is Surfshark.

    Oh yeah absolutely. When you connect to a VPN you are experiencing their network, allowing them to deal with your network activity for you. They can log it for any measure of time or log nothing.

    VPN of course. I think this is the best solution, if you want "work from the various countries"
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11479638].message }}
  • Yes you can use VPN if the nature of the tasks requires that like if you want to have multiple accounts in specific forum or platform then they wont allow you to have several accounts from same IP then VPN is a necessity but I would suggest to go for a proxy instead since with VPN you might not get same IP always and change in IP when logging can create a red flag.

    So VPN usage is dependent on the task that you want. i

    There is no need of VPN in organic SEO.
    If you are using finance or doing more online transactions then you can use it for online security & privacy.

    First of all, there is no such thing exist as "Good and Cheap". The VPN is not necessarily the best solution, as they may also leak data.

    VPNs mask your IP address. Masking your IP address has no direct effect on SEO.

    Use a VPN for security or for accessing sites banned in certain countries.
