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.



That's the first time i've seen google deliver such a message. I have a page of standard searches that I make every so often, but not often. It saves me typing in the operators each time, I simply click on the link.

I wonder if google are tightening up on that.

It's true that i'm probably a high usage search, but not that high. In fact, i've been using bing more than google in the last few months.

I've been getting that message more frequently in recent times - but only when I use Firefox. I thought about it and realized that my browser MIGHT be sending automated queries in the following way.

I tried turning off any extension that reported on Google information, including PR, and also made sure that pre-fetch was disabled. I haven't seen that error message since those two changes.

This new "sensitivity" at Google was mentioned in another thread recently, and g1smd commented that queries with a combination of the special operators site: plus inurl: seems to trigger the cut-off message quite easily.

Yes i am also getting this message when i search for site: or allinanchor or similar queries from the same site. They do not want the seo community to overuse their precious resouces.

Simply make sure there is a courtesy pause between each query, about 8-10 seconds minimum should do it. Go faster than a query every 8 seconds, and you will eventually get locked out for a few hours.

Usually i get this response after i am using an application who search on Google results position etc.

If i not make many queries and I get this message, i am sure somebody else in the office make it,because we go out through a proxy.

Although i never saw this message, i'm pretty sure that some kind of automated queries does exist.
I once searched for a very unique keyphrase that no one else would. It was 2 sentences from the content of my site, just to check the results. Although the same query couldn't have been submitted by any other user, in Google Analytics - Keywords it appeared about 20 times in different days!

I started getting that message a couple of years ago, when I was clicking on links in Webmaster Tools to see how many pages were indexed! It wouldn't let me look at more than about 8-9 pages before I got that message.

I could go to Google search and get search results without any problem, but anytime I tried to view 100 results, then go past page 8 or 9, I'd get locked out. I gave up and haven't tried since.

I had that same message when I was doing link research last week, I also had the toolbar PR etc on at the same time. I was quite insulted at first, me sending automated queries ? who me?

Anyhow the problem seems to have resolved itself now.
