Does Google Know when You are Searching and Testing Proxies?

    I downloaded GSA Search Engine Ranker (free trial) the other day. I haven't quite setup the backlinking campaigns yet. I have been trying to really understand how to deal with proxies.

    What's weird is I keep getting these popups from Google when I am doing searches "We have detected unusual traffic from your network." So... I was wondering does Google know when these programs search and test proxies?

    I already used anti-virus software to see if any spam program is on my computer but I didn't find anything and I did a boot scan. Seems odd to me but I was thinking these messages have to do with the proxy searches and tests.

    I don't know about GSA, but with Scrapebox, the searching and testing part is done using your own IP. So that is no good, as some of those proxies could be "plants" by google.

    I am thinking of getting VPN as an extra layer of protection, personally - or using VPS.

    Maybe your doing too many queries per proxy/ip

    I normally get that at times when I've queried google a lot using a certain keyword tool but I simply either wait it out (2/3 mins) or obtain another IP.

    I was getting a few of these before I even started proxy testing though. I guess I am manually doing too many searches? :)

    If you select use proxies for everything you will no longer get this result.

    Big G knows. Better be careful what you put online.

    You should use anonymous proxies. G might be able to find it if the proxies are transparent which doesn't hide your IP.

    When testing, all you have to do is use a site that usually is up all the time, and preferably one that already gets a lot of traffic.

    Any search engine other than G is a good alternative.

    I think the issue is SeoQuake, since it pulls info from Google.
