Proxy servers provide a way to locate your search in another location. You may think “Great. Just what I need to get localized search results in a far-away location.” But look closer and you will find that localizing your search results via a proxy service is not really solving the problem.

Proxy servers are still located somewhere. And if the server is not located exactly where you need it, its useless. Most proxy servers are located in datacenters. Most datacenters are neither located where local businesses are, nor where their customer base is; they are usually located where power is least expensive and communication lines are abundant. That means they are usually located outside populated areas. There are exceptions, even in some major metropolitan areas. But finding the right proxy server for your situation requires you do a lot of research.
