How does google know my bot is a bot? filter_list
RE: How does google know my bot is a bot? #10
There's no way you can stop Google from detecting your bot. It looks for "bot-like" actions and serves those users a captcha. You could even use your real browser, search a dork, and keep clicking next page and you'd be served a captcha after 20 or so pages. Bing doesn't rate limit a direct search where you parse html, but it has a limit on its API. Yandex limits both API and direct but the API has decent limits.

As far as what else it does, I'm not sure. I myself have never been able to quite "crack the code" on what Google does. Perhaps it's worth a Google.

Google's search API is deprecated and it was rate limited anyway.
