Comments on: Never Seen This Before Search Engine Optimisation Ireland Sun, 29 Mar 2015 11:08:12 +0100 hourly 1 By: Brenda Sun, 21 Mar 2010 21:06:21 +0000 I am getting this on start up as my homepage is set to It started when I found Firefox hijacked on this laptop, but fixed it. I guess I’ll have to live with doing this every time I boot up now. UGH. Wish there was a way to ask google to reset it for what? my particular IP addy?

But I must say that in the last 2 months I’ve not seen one. I guess coworkers are searching less or there s some algorithm on google to recognise this situations.

By: Richard Hearne Mon, 10 Aug 2009 10:29:59 +0000 Hi Dave

Not seen you in a while :)
I hadn’t seen this particular message before.

@Tom – so now we all know… you’re the one who’s been sending all those automated requests to Google ;)

Rgds to both

By: Tom Doyle Mon, 10 Aug 2009 09:23:23 +0000 Yep – have come across it myself quite a bit too.

By: Dave Davis Sun, 09 Aug 2009 21:26:39 +0000 Nothing new Richard.

I’d be willing to bet that it’s a firefox extension you have installed (I know the screenshot is Chrome).

I know the SEOtoolbar causes it when cache date, DMOZ (G dir) and PR is turned on. IF you have your results set to > 20 it happens.

Google have also been increasing the timeout. I’ve had to wait a few hours to get my IP white again.

SEOquake causes it too.

You’re right though, the message is slightly different.
