Hi Cindyvine, I'll tell you but you have to tell me what you find. OK?
This shows you how to do it right from your computer with no-hassle. It's a video and is a little hard to follow, but if you watch it carefully a few times, you'll figure it out. There is no sound or narration:
Or, you can use a proxy server, but that's probably not what you're looking for since they cost money and will show a different IP every time you use it, nor can you say what country you want it to indicate (I think.) But this explains a lot:
If your only desire is to get by country specific filters (not looking for anonymity) you just need a proxy site, there are tons that are marketed towards myspace and facebook users (as corporate intranets freq block access)
you essentially just browse through that site, rather than your own browser and the site you are looking at read your ip-as the site owners instead.
such a method is ONLY good for the purpose of getting around a country block - if your up to clickfraud or want to be anonymous you'll want to invest in your own dedicated proxy server
The TOR plugin for fiorefox can simplify the process for you...but google blocks it!
tell me the country you want to be in and i can send you a link
You can hide your IP using an external proxy server. This could mask your real IP with a fake one that shows you as being in a different country. Aftet having VPN service,if you want to know your fake ip visit http://www.ip-details.com/
If you choose to install tor, then after installation you have to restart Fire Fox.
Then go to Extra > Switch Proxy > manage proxies > add > standard > next.
Next enter the following information into both the HTTP Proxy and SSL Proxy fields. Hostname: 127.0.0.1 Port: 8118. Set up any proxy exceptions you may need and then click on OK.(Do this also for the proxy label)
Choose in Firefox > extra > switch Proxy > Preferences > and apply "show toolbar"
Now the toolbar will be shown in FF. Choose proxy, your proxy server you just filed in: 127.0.0.1
wow, thanks for the info MangoGirl, you are good at this! Adsense won't recognise my Chinese address as being valid so won't let me join even though it is my real address. I'm leaving here soon and wanted to give them my next address but that won't work as they automatically recognise my IP as being from China, so I have to give my address in both English and Chinese and no way around that. Was wondering if I could somehow change my IP that Adsense don't see it as China, that I might be able to sign up. Ahhhhhh, but even with MG's step by step instructions on how to do it, it makes my head hurt. Need a coffee. Am too untechnical!
LMAO Cindy some people are good at this, what were we just saying haha. I had no idea you could do this either, damn no-one else think of doing it, I am up to my eye-lashes in all my undercover detective cases already, oh well this is the cream on the pie, now what we going to do Cindy ROFL
No shrewd and crude ROFL....I have to say I can't rely on my IP theories anymore...am going to read my mail Cin. Yes Adsense can be a right pain with certain countries,hope they will accept you now Cindy with the right IP
Cindy you need to not just have an IP address in a recognised country - but also a mailing address -which they definitly use before they will pay you and probably a ph number as well - not sure on the last.
I may be a bit late throwing this out there, but proxy web sites are an easy way to appear to have a different ip address. If you don't mind paying and also want a bit of security, you can use a VPN to encrypt your traffic and route it through a server in the country of your choice. That server's IP address will then appear to be yours.
I use Hide My Ass ... also known as HMA when I do not want google to see my foot prints when promoting my content. HMA is a monthly service. You can get unlimited web proxies with the service to surf online anonymously, hide your IP address and protect your privacy.
So does anybody here know an easy way to exclude all of my internal traffic from both my work comp and home comp for Google Analytics. Filters seem to be geared more towards owned websites and not so much a site like...
We deployed a few changes to the site in the last hour. You may have noticed some funny behavior briefly. The biggest change is that we modified the location of advertisements on hubs a bit, in a way that...
