Being an affiliate marketer, it is very important for me to look at offer pages, advertisements and websites using an IP address from another country. Not all offers or advertisements are available for every country and hence it is not possible for everyone to view all Ads or websites without changing the IP address. I was using the Proxy 202 service some time back which is free and was brilliant round about a year ago. Services by Proxy 202 have been bad since then and it was time to stick to a paid Virtual Private Network (VPN).
What is a Virtual Private Network or VPN?
You can search on the Internet if you are looking for a technical definition of VPN. For me VPN is something that assigns a foreign country IP address to my network. This means that once I am on a US VPN, the websites I go to, see me as a visitor from United States and if I am on a UK VPN, websites see me as a visitor from UK.
Why Would You Need a VPN?
You would know the answer if you are an Affiliate Marketer already. Other reasons would be to access a website or content which is not available from your country. A simple example would be difference between http://www.google.com and http://www.google.co.in. A person typing in google.com from India gets redirected to google.co.in because his IP tells Google that the visitor is from India. So if I start my US VPN, I would go to Google.com when I type in Google.com because Google will see me coming from the United States. This will allow me to see search results on Google.com which can be different from search results displayed on Google.co.in. Pretty useful for SEOs.
