    I spend all day scraping SERPs, and i noticed recently that when I get a captcha page, and i enter the captcha, it redirects me to another captcha page, effectively a captcha loop. Clearing cache and cookies and going through proxies does not effect this. Has anyone else run into this issue/resolved it?

    Yeah I've also had exactly the same problem today. Very odd.

    I used Scrapebox to do it. After a few hours it seems to let me search normally again, though.

    I know from personal experience that some keyword searches specifically trigger an anti-bot response. Searches that look like they target exploitable servers and software usually trigger this response but sometimes its just a specific search that someone else hit so frequently that google just banned the search itself for a few days.
