    I'm trying to run a report for a client in SEO Power Tools and I'm getting this: "Search in Google Index" Failed: Temp block"

    Everything else seems to be working.

    I also use Market S. and IBP, so I'm probably sending a lot of searches through Google.

    Any insights appreciated.

    Well it is either 15 minutes or you have a captcha to seize manually within google.

    Always use proxies when you are querying Google en masse. The temp ban could be a few hours to 24 hours (extreme case I'm guessing).

    An IP ban based off automated queries can last from 10 minutes to a few hours. Best use proxies if you can.

    Edit - putting a delay between the queries is less likely to flag it as an automated query if you can't (or don't want to) use proxies.

    as Iwantl00t said, Google ban can and usually does last for 12-24hrs IF you are auto-querying heavily.

    Be sure to have multiple 'dummy' accounts setup and just sub out that account. In most cases it is just an account ban and not and IP ban
