    There's no set limit on how much will get you banned. Some will get banned fast, some never get banned. I wouldn't be using my own IP if I was you. Anything that you think has a risk of getting your IP ban, then you should look for ways around it.

    I've been scraping millions of hits from google for a project of mine.

    Actually I got banned very fast when testing around, first they give you a captcha.
    You can solve it and google will still work (a cookie is placed).
    Next is (sometimes) a permanent captcha, one that comes back for every search result.
    Next is a temporary ban of the IP, I've witnessed that it came back (with captcha) some time after that.
    Next is a prolonged ban (no idea how long and if the subnet is affected).

    I've been using 200 proxies for the scraping and the problems were gone, I could run the tool for weeks without any outages.


    Mindfuck #1:
    Google is the largest scraper on earth, by far ! And they disallow that people scrape them. Isn't that just fucked up ?

    I've been banned with a captcha or temp-ip after a few rapid hits. Or by rapidly querying deeply into the pages.
