Best proxy server for viewing google product ads

Msg#: 4491620 posted 3:52 pm on Sep 5, 2012 (gmt 0)

this should be easy for someone to answer. just wondering what the best proxy server for viewing google product ads is. I am in Canada but my main market is USA. With the recent/current changeover from free Merchant center to Paid Adwords for product listing ads, I can no longer see who my competitors are, what my placement is, and what the competitors ads look like.

The only proxy servers ive used are the ones ive googled... and lets be fair, we all know how that went. It looks like the pages that the proxy serves are strange (no 6 packs, no 3 packs... No big block of Adwords, never any product ads, no image results in the serps) they just show the top 10 listings in order, nothing fancy, no frills.

What's the best solution for an advertiser outside of the usa who needs to view what results are showing in the usa?

Here's a couple of suggestions:

a) If you run a server in the US, install OpenVPN.
b) Purchase a VPN subscription in the US.

Option b can cost as little as $50/year** and option a is free.

"Free" proxy servers in the US are not reliable, let alone legal in many cases.

**And you get access to Hulu :D
