It may sound a little weird. I am validating one of my possible research ideas where I want to see if I can intentionally and effectively make websites such as Google and AWS to block my IP. By “block”, I mean it won’t let me directly access the service, but not necessarily blacklist my IP. For example, the website will ask me to solve a ReCaptcha before I can access its service, instead of telling me service is unavailable.
I know if I send a large number of requests in a short time (i.e., using DoS) it is very likely that I can make it work, but I wonder if there is any other “efficient” way to make it happen. From what I have found here: https://support.google.com/websearch/thread/2596872?hl=en, it mentioned Google may block the following:
- Sending searches from a robot, computer program, automated service, or search scraper
- Using software that sends searches to Google to see how a website or webpage ranks on Google
- Using an app, program or script to perform a large number of searches in a short time
Is it possible that I mimic such a request and cause myself to be blocked in just one or a few requests?
