    If google or yahoo, or any similar serach engines are not blocked on your server then search for the site on there, and use the cached version as this is represented by a Google/Yahoo URL rather than the actual website address,

    I think what loopy_li is saying is that someone has specifically blocked a username or IP address from accessing a certain site. This can be done through administration of the application used on the specific site (such as vBulletin as used here on tMP) or more ferciously through the use of what is called an .htaccess file which is a security file located on the web server and is managed by the owner of the specific www site.

    Googling or Yahooing may well return the site in the search list, but it simply won't allow access if a username or IP has been excluded.
