There is info at http://wiki.noreply.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/
In bullet summary, too many connections from one IP to some-sites (like Google
and Yahoo) is viewed by them as bad behaviour.
Consider using http://www.scroogle.org/
- This is a scraper for Yahoo and Google, basically a middleman (which is a
good thing to use for non-tor users) between yahoo and google - this works
great from Tor too.. also, if you are a Tor user then google/yahoo can use
cookies to track you, scroogle won't try to set cookies (which is why you
should configure toolz like switchproxy to remove all cookies when you switch
Also, if you get 403 you can try another exit, just append nickname.exit after
the URL.. as in http://google.com.nadia.exit/ to exit from nadia. This
doesn't work with some sites, namely any site using vhosts, since the server
may not know about no sitename.com.blahblah.exit vhost, just sitename.com,
but it works for google & yahoo & most services who are so big & profitable
that they only run one site pr server/server cluster.
