The other day, I was trying to register at Yelp and I was consistently getting the following message:
I tried registering at different times and Yelp still kept giving me the same message. Then, I was pretty sure that there had to be some other reason that it was not allowing me to register than the server being ‘over-worked’.
I then tried to register via. a proxy server and voila! it worked seamlessly. I have a Yelp account now, with no issues. So, either Yelp blocks registrations from locations it does not yet support or my dynamic IP was banned, the former being the more likely suspect.
Whatever the case maybe, using a proxy server should solve this issue. Happy Yelping!
