Although the tests have faults, they are another layer of defense, said Peter Norvig, director of search quality at Google and author of a book on Web robots.

"All they have to do is make it so expensive their opponents don't want to do it," Norvig said, adding that time is money. "If you are doing this battle you want to have a lot of tools and frustrate your opponent step-by-step."
