    Philippines has been blocked from using squidoo and for anyone having IM, this is making a huge impact.

    I would like to know how people got around this.

    Or if you have any ideas, please let me know. Ill be very greatful.

    All the best,
    -Jarby

    Use a VPN mate.. Or proxy.. Anything that covers your IP.

    BTW, change your title.. Kinda confusing.. You might wanna say Philippines is banned from Squidoo

    HEADS-UP!

    Squidoo access from your IP range has been blocked, due to an unmistakable trend of spam or automated lensbuilding or other Terms of Service violations coming from the area. Our Squidoo engineers work hard to keep the platform safe and valuable for the hundreds of thousands of people who use it to publish useful, unique, curated, authentic content. Unfortunately we're unable to provide services to your IP range at this time. Thanks for your interest in using Squidoo, and good luck with whichever other service you use to build your webpages.


    This is what im getting. Pretty darn annoying if you ask me.

    Yeah, I figured this one out too. Its only in my region and some others. I would like to know which proxy changing method works best?

    What do you guys use? Are they secure?

    yeh this is stupid and a waste. Mass posters always use proxies since even if their ip is NOT banned it would get banned real quick after multiple posts. This squeezes out the little guys and does NOTHING against the big guys who already use proxies.

    My ip was banned too. Just get an IP proxy and you're all good. Oh and if you do plan to make 5 or 10 lenses in one day then you will need really need a proxy. I always write the content on an html editor then paste it on squidoo. and I noticed that they will start banning your IP when you make about 5 very quickly.

    You can use cyberghostvpn or ultravpn. Its free just search it in googs

    I don't know if this will work for you, but I knew someone from India who used:

    Code:

    to bypass ip blocks. This may also work:

    I have some resources in Philippines doing work using packetflip proxies. Had no issues yet, although one of the ip's has been banned by yahoo. You can get them fairly cheap and have decent speed.
