Fix Google Service Problem

I have problems when I try to use Google Service, especially Google Scholar with Digital Ocean Server (NYC). You know, people cannot use Google Service without VPS/VPN here in mainland China.

It always says "We're sorry...... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now."

I hope you can fix this problem. I don't know if I am the only person who face this problem. If so, could anyone help me with this?

Thank you for your time.

    Hi, Google will sometimes block whole ranges of "known datacenter IPs." For scholar.google.com in particular, it is quite common. We work hard to improve the reputation of our IP blocks in a number of ways, but unfortunately there isn't much we can do on a short term basis. Migrating your VPN to a different datacenter might be your best solution.
