    Question Can I still be banned by google?

    As we know: "Sending automated queries to Google is a violation of our terms of service. This may result in blocked access to Google from your IP address".

    I just got a interesting question several minutes ago, if I send automatic query to yahoo, or other search engine which uses googlebot database(Sympatico.ca), shall my IP address still be banner?

    Obviously if you get banned from the google index you will not be listed on any sites that use those search results.

    But as for getting banned form the google index by spamming parter sites i would not think so. In specific Yahoo only uses the google index for search's.

    i would not think you could get banned like this, but would you take that risk (which i think is quite low )

    On the other hand, if you are that worried you could get a cheap host maybe $30 a year and host the pages that you wan to dso this on that server, if you o get banned you get banned but havent really lost anything.

    Google does not ban your sites for this. THey ban you, IE your IP address.

    IF you're searching at Yahoo there is no way that Google knows what your IP address is (unless Yahoo tells them) so it should be safe.

    Because yahoo uses google index now, so that if I send query to yahoo, it will forward my query to google. If the forwarding query contains IP address of mine, I have risk of being banned. If no IP address forwarded, google has no way to know my IP address at all. Who knows?

    I don't see why you would want to do this to google.

    What google is referring to is using a program or script on your machine to repeatedly send search queries to google, or sending an unreasonably high number of search queries to google.

    I am pretty sure Yahoo would do the same thing if they are aware of it and so would any webmaster, presuming they were aware of it. It uses up an unreasonable amount of their bandwidth. It could indicate that somebody is trying to attack their server.

    Under normal condition, people may not send too many requests to search engine. But if you are using a ranking analyzer, such as WP Gold, it may send lots of requests than people do. I'm just afraid that my IP will be banned if I used such a tool.
