I strongly oppose breaching any laws, but I am willing to bend terms and conditions to get outcomes for my clients. One of these methods is to employ proxies and cookie shifting with everything I do online.
What Exactly Is The Hack I’m Referring To Here?
The hack is to create at least a dozen accounts (ideally Gmail accounts) in order to register accounts on sites such as LinkedIn, Quora, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and others.
Remember that Google can place a lot of weight on certain web 2.0 social media platforms like Quora and Reddit.
Yes, John Mueller has come out saying on Reddit that forum posts don’t count for SEO backlinking juice but I also believe that, surely, Google places E-A-T credit of human-visited “real” websites like Quora that genuinely answers a question.
Let’s look at how using a 10x proxy strategy (i.e. having multiple accounts) can help our growth marketing.
If you make a comment or post on LinkedIn or Reddit, you may bump it up by voting or liking it, making it more likely to be elevated to the top. When you reach the top of a platform like Reddit or SlashDot, you may expect a surge in traffic to your website or blog.
So, let’s get back to the growth hacking strategy.
To get this procedure started, it’s best to start by purchasing pre-registered Gmail accounts.
Because you can quickly make accounts on the aforementioned social media sites, and they are affordable to purchase.
Please bear with me as I get fairly technical here. If this hack is too technical for you, delegate it to someone in your workplace to complete it on your behalf.
First off, head over to any decent service that sells pre-made email accounts. I can’t think of any off the top of my head, but just Google and you’ll find services.
Recently, I’ve been having the most success with Yandex emails to create accounts on social media platforms.
Then, head over to Buy Proxies buyproxies.org/ and get yourself ten proxies (one for each Gmail account).
Thirdly and lastly, go to the Chrome Addon store and install the following addons “Swap My Cookies” and “SwitchyOmega”.
Here’s what we’re aiming for: we want to install the proxies (which are IP addresses) into our Google Chrome browser so that every time we remark or perform an action using one of our accounts, it appears as if we’re coming from the same specific spot in the world.
Why Do We Need To Do This?
If we don’t then these platforms will detect that all the Gmail accounts are owned by the same person and they’ll cancel them.
While having ten distinct accounts won’t help you much with boosting Quora or Reddit posts (I’d recommend using Microworkers, People Per Hour, or MTurks for that), you may use the account most efficiently for at least submitting the first material.
This inspiration for this post and the concept of using proxies and dummy accounts to broaden your reach for digital marketing is taken from Grant Cardone and his famous 10x strategy book.
