    This describes the average proxy webmaster. Doing a simple, routine, mechanical and automated process for little profit. The profit is generally little because your new proxy gets blocked very soon, heavy competition, the millions of co.cc proxies that get submitted to a popular proxy list each time just after you manage to submit one or two, unreliable hosting that goes down just after you promote/submit a proxy and many of the hundred other things that could go wrong.

    In a perfect world with little competition, peaceful filters that only block you after a week of proxy primetime, equal payouts for all country traffic (That is china and Iran traffic earns you as much as US traffic) and NO FREE DOMAINS, you could get much more traffic per proxy and much more profit. But conditions being as they are .............

    Conditions for "breaking threw filters" will only get worse as the technology for blocking websites gets more effective and affordable, making your sites get blocked so fast that it unprofitable to buy new domain, oh wait thats already here, becuase most are using co.cc now...

    That is why you need to break out of the average. I stopped making multiple proxies after my first two months and started focusing on just a few.

    The average blogger usually quits a blog after a month or so of no earnings. See, I can generalize too.

    I wish there were more people like you. Surely would reduce competition and make submitting to lists profitable again.

    In my observations, average and incompetent people make up the majority of any group, whether bloggers or proxy webmasters or whatever else (Or at least they seem to).

That is what's great about this niche... you typically do get a nice return on your time and money.
    it's true. time is money, but you're going to have to put your time in and actually see what works and what does not before anything changes. you can't sit and do the same thing daily hoping for a miracle.

    Hosting for me is about 10% of my earnings, aswell, and I could easily downsize but I choose not to because I'd prefer dedicated. I'v found yahoo to be pretty effective aswell; however, I don't even do any promotion on it. I'v found that users actually submit my proxies to yahoo answers, and it brings me traffic. Found this out by googling a few times, heh.

    You earn 1000$ per month from proxies? (Assuming a 100$ dedicated server)

    What kind of server do you actually have that can handle the load needed for the traffic needed for so much revenue?
