Proxies From All Over the World

The beauty of the dot com lifestyle is that you are able to run your business from anywhere you have an Internet connection. John Chow, for example, is currently hunting pandas in Shanghai. That said, there are still some limitations to running an online business that you may want to consider.

With affiliate marketing, you may find that there are certain offers that are only available to people in a certain country. Maybe the offer is only available in Canada or the United Kingdom, and you happen to find yourself in Tucson, Arizona. What is an affiliate marketer to do? WorldProxy202 makes the process insanely easy, letting you pretend that you are working from somewhere else in the world.

Proxies From Around the World at Your Fingertips

Using the WorldProxy202 service is remarkably easy and straightforward. The idea is that they have set up various proxies around the world, so even if you find yourself in Australia, Russia, or Peru, you can still see the same Google AdSense ads (for example) that you would if you were viewing a webpage in your home in Vancouver, New York, or Tulsa. This is particularly valuable for Internet marketers who live outside the major markets in Canada and the United States.

There is no registration needed. All you do is go to the proxy website and click on your country of choice. You are then presented with an address bar where you can enter whatever URL that you’d like to view “from” that country. Everything is directed through the WorldProxy202 server, but they say that they do not track any of your surfing habits.

Aside from providing the proxy, WorldProxy202 also offers a good number of surfing options. These are represented by a series of checkboxes, letting you do things like remove client-side scripting, allow cookies to be stored, show images on browsed pages, and strip meta information tags from pages.

Well, Not All Around the World

As nice as it would be to have a proxy set up in every country around the globe, WorldProxy202 isn’t quite at that level just yet. At this time, they only have proxies set up in Canada, USA, and the United Kingdom. More countries will be added as the service grows.

The naming of the proxies does not get any more specific than this. It would be nice to be able to select from various proxies within each country and I hope that WorldProxy202 offers this level of functionality at some point in the future. As it stands, the goal of WorldProxy202 is just to provide enough country-level proxies for affiliate marketers to see offers that they may not otherwise be able to see. If you want to suggest another country, you can send your request via email.

Get The Toolbar

As convenient as WorldProxy202 may be, it can be a bit of a pain to have to go to their website every time you need to use a proxy. That’s why they’ve got a toolbar download too.

The toolbar works in exactly the same way as the on-site proxy works. The country of your proxy is selected from a pull-down menu and after entering your chosen URL, you are presented with the same top section of the webpage for setting your options. These options are the same as before, so you can disable Javascript, disallow cookies, and so on. The toolbar is currently only available for Firefox users. There’s no mention of an IE version on the site.

The Best Things in Life Are Free

For those of you interested in living the dot com lifestyle, a service like WorldProxy202 could prove to be absolutely invaluable. The proxies let you see the webpages as they would appear in at least three different countries, opening up some monetization methods that may not have been made available to you otherwise.

Oh, and the reason why the WorldProxy202 branding seems familiar is because it comes from the same people that developed Tracking202 and Prosper202. Like their previous two offerings, WorldProxy202 is 100% free as well.
