I'm using software to query Google for data, and lately, Google has been blocking my requests almost immediately. This is getting really annoying, as all I want is keyword data. The software does allow me to use a proxy, but the problem is that the software first accesses its "home" server to check for updates, etc. and I need to block this. Currently, I don't use a proxy, so I am able to block this with the hosts file in Win7. There are no settings in the software to turn this off. Is there a proxy service out there (am willing to pay for it) that will let me set certain IP/URLs to be blocked?
