Ouch! Scroogle.org's Google search scraping service has been temporarily suspended since July 1, 2010 because of Google's UI changes. You'll encounter Scroogle's notice after you perform a keyword search on their Scraper page. This is surely an unwelcome development. Now I'll be reverting to my usual workaround for Google's Personalized Search.

Guess what?

A web proxy server. I always use a United States-based proxy server to perform my keyword searches for Google. This has been my workaround for Google's Personalized Search. A US-based proxy server will give me a sample of what US-based Google Search users will encounter after performing a keyword search.

I currently use HideMyAss.com because of its simple user interface and catchy name. Its server is based in Los Angeles, California, United States.

Going back to Scroogle, let's wait for their next update and just hope for the best.
