Another Pet Peeve with Google

If you’ve ever done any keyword research online you’ll know how tedious it can be. But we live in a competitive world and due diligence requires that we perform at least a basic analysis before we spend money right? And where do we go to do that? Well, a very large percentage of the population go to BIG G!

 Now, if I have a legitimate need to perform keyword analysis for either myself or a client either by hand or using decent automated tools, I expect to have access to the same system will take my money and yours. But alas, more irritants along the way because of, ahem, computer viruses or spyware… and of course the need to ‘protect our users’… Here’s one for your viewing pleasure…

We’re sorry…

… but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can’t process your request right now.

We’ll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we’ll see you again on Google.

To continue searching, please type the characters you see below:

You only have to type the captcha phrase into the box, but it’s bloody annoying! Particularly because it’s often almost impossible to read the captcha text!

Ah well…
