Some people need IPs from a more localized area like a specific country or a specific city. Previously people would just search for proxy providers that could supply them with proxies from that area but for backconnect this is not easily done.
GEO Targeting to the rescue… Geo Targeting means that you setup a filter and providers like Microleaves Proxies will check their databases and only give you IPs from the areas you requested.
Currently most providers of backconnect proxies offer country GEO Targeting. Some offer ISP Targeting. And some providers like Luminati also offer city targeting and also they have added a nifty feature called ASN Targeting.
ASN or Autonomous System Number
ASN or Autonomous System Number is a way for internet service providers to organise computer systems. They make networks that know how and where to find each other. Usually each ASN is linked to a specific network. And most times you can get a much more granular control from target a specific ASN than by targeting a country or even a city. ( There could be tens to hundreds of ASNs in a single city )
