    Google Warns Against Automated Queries: Implications for Third-Party Tools?

    Google Warns Against Automated Queries, What Does This Mean for Third-Party Tools?
    Search Engine Journal
    December 16, 2016

    Google’s Gary Illyes issued a reminder this week that sending automated searches to Google is against the Terms of Service. This is not a new rule, but it appears that the issue has been on the minds of Google’s Webmaster Trends Analysts as of late.

    I reached out to Jon Henshaw, Co-founder of Raven Tools, to get his insight into what this might mean for third party tools. According to Henshaw, Google is notoriously inconsistent when it comes to enforcing its own Terms of Service:

    “In regards to scraping search results, Google has been inconsistent with how they enforce their Terms of Service. In fact, there appears to be a great deal of disagreement inside of Google as to whether or not it should be enforced at all.”
