I have been browsing the marketplace and notice a lot of proxy websites for sale. I understand what a proxy website is, but how is it that they generate so much traffic so quickly? Are these good websites to purchase as a newbie? Do you have to have your own dedicated server or can you host these with someone like GoDaddy?

Also, I came across an ebook that tells people how to flip proxy sites. That sent up red flags in my head and makes me wonder if these kind of sites are good investments or are most buyers getting duped somehow.

Any advice/insight from those of you who are more experienced would be greatly appreciated.
