I used to be redirected to some pages when I requested 'too many' (50)
results per page. This was going on for a while and reached an end without
need for intervention at my end. If I recall correctly, it gave some sort
of a "forbidden page" (not sure about error code), saying that I
overloaded the server... or something to that effect.
For that reason, I no longer run scripts that probe SERP's. If GoogleBar
can annoy them, I'm sure that the effect of scripts (Perl) will can lead
to a potentially irreversible penalty. How long before we get the option
to go to the post office and pay a GFine and redeem some traffic...?
