    Greetings. I was having a lot of success driving traffic from the Disqus comments section of a rival site, I wasn't massively spamming links but just occasionally I would make a relevant comment on the post with a link and image and was driving between 300-1000 views to my site.

    The site caught on though and banned my IP. I've tried using several of the proxy sites that appear in google to try and work around this but none of them seem to show the comment box making it hard to create an account and continue with my antics.

    Would anyone be able to recommend me a proxy site, (preferably free) that will allow me to see the disqus comments box of the rival site?

    Thanks.

    try Hola maybe, it's a VPN addon for FF and chrome, i'd recommend to use it with chrome, the FF version is kinda buggy, at least for me, but clean the cookies/cache too, i think disqus is pretty good at tracking :) and it can be that your domain is banned too, so maybe you'll need to shorten it and if it doesn't work, do a redirect

    If you're ever interested in buying a Disqus bot holla at me, I coded one myself and had amazing results with it.

    Keep in mind that Hola will sell your bandwidth to businesses via http://luminati.io/ (that's how they provide the service for free).

    Appreciate the info Eight.

    Since I was able to get help so fast for this problem, I figured I would post here again and see if anyone has another suggestion for me. It appears as though the domain has in fact been blocked. I've tried using various URL shorteners and even a completely separate domain that points to my current domain yet still no luck. Any idea what I can do to circumvent this?

    That's not a big issue buddy! There are lot of proxies that you can use, the most easy one is zenmate where you can change your geographical location into any country, other side hola could also be used.

    That's really not a big issue. You can use proxies for it. Hola and zenmate are better options and you can use them with different regions.

    Hi mate! You can use zenmate with distinct locations and it also provides its proxy services at a certain limit free of cost.
