getting past server website restrictions..
how would you get past those kind of restrictions when every anonymizer site tool uses the word "anonymous or related" somewhere in the url so the servers software recognizes it and blocks. I was wondering if there was a site that you can enter the url of the site you want to go to and works ... it would have to be a site that didnt have certain keywords inplanted in the site to trigger the site blocker on the server...

The best and strongest anonymizer is Tor, and its free.
It will do what you want it to do, but do yourself a favor and read through the site to figure out how it works instead of just using it to do stuff you shouldn't.

I really don't understand your question, and suspect that you do not fully understand how this blocking software works. It might be an idea to do a bit of research on them first.
To put things very simplistically the blocking usually is performed at the IP address level. Here the software checks for banned sites against a list of IP addresses or ranges of IP addresses. These lists are maintained by the server administrators, who would usually download them from a variety of sources and can manually add or delete ones of their own choice.
The software will generally have a "second string" in that it will look for keywords related to the site, and block on this basis, once again using an administrator maintained list. So:
WRONG! Proper anonymiser software will check nondescript ftp sites belonging to the software vendor, and will download a list of current anonymous public proxy servers' IP addresses. It will then use this list to function. The good ones will change the proxy every 30 seconds or so (better ones allow you to determine this yourself). They also monitor for performance and drop slow connections from the list.
every anonymizer site tool uses the word "anonymous or related" somewhere in the url so the servers software recognizes it and blocks.
What you are describing is software that is apparently doing an internet search to find proxies using words that are almost certainly on the excluded list
That sort of software is very dangerous as it has no vetting process, and you do not know if you are getting a genuine public proxy, or a malicious "trojan" site that will fill your PC/network with all sorts of malware.
Also remember that the network administrators have many other tools to monitor and manage the system as well as an AUP
In your reasearch you might like to look at: Internet Logging, Activity Monitoring and Software Auditing
