No, that would be against Google's Terms of Service.

Hmm - The script is able to correctly manage such IPs (delays, switching between IPs etc).
The developer has used a number of proxy servers in the past and had a lot of issues, SEO-Proxies works flawless for him - he said.
Well do i need several ips or can i run the script without any ip!?
