    I sent an email to my ISP. Hopefully they'll get back with me.

    I've had this once before. Sorted itself out after a few days.

    To be honest, I thought this for a few seconds. :lol:

    Yeah, but until then I'll be using other search engines.

    I had that happen to me once. I just shutdown the entire network in the house for about an hour, came back, and it was fine.

    At first, thought this was going to be those stupid security code checks. I hate, hate, HATE those things!

    It was getting so frustrating because it was happening to every search request. I do hundreds of searches a day, as I go to college online, so getting that damnable CAPTCHA 100+ times a day was just too much.

    Bing's doing great, by the way. I have found every result I have searched for to be very relevant to my requests. A week ago I wouldn't have given it the time of day, ardent Google supporter that I am.

    I get that a lot.

    Of course, I am using automated programs for SEO that query google a lot. :)

    I promise you, I'm not on your network. I have become your network.

    You could use a proxy server to get around it.

    Yep, I've seen those before. It usually happens when you're using a onion-skin proxy server like Tor or Privoxy. Mama Google doesn't like it when you try to hide from her. :evil::borg:

    Actually they weren't google spiders. I did a trace on a couple I caught. They originated from Bandcon, a content delivery system. It appears to generate a swarm of page reading entities whenever a web page is clicked on.

    Proxy servers have been unsuccessful. I tried to reroute my connection through a few proxies and it still didn't work.

    True, but I'm not using a proxy server. Other than the ones mentioned above that I used to try and get around the problem, I don't use them at all.
