Too many requests error?


I am using keyword research. When I click competitor research (quick) I get an error stating I have too many requests. I am only requesting this and haven't requested anything else.

The error is http-error: 429 Too many requests RFC 6585

    that seems to be an error from your proxy
  • I wasn’t using a proxy. It’s is my servers IP. Could it be that google is asking for recaptcha to be solved?
  • SvenSven
    hmm possible yes. Hard to tell without details. Can you switch the search engine against bing? Or can you check if it opens in browser?
  • I was able to fix the problem by adding proxies. So I am going to assume that the issue was google asking for captcha. Is it possible to use a captcha service with keyword research? Or do I just need to use good proxies?

    Thanks a bunch for your help, Sven.

    You better use proxies here as it improved the whole performance. Captcha services for search engines is something I hear as a request often but I really don't think its worth adding it.
  • As I continue using it, I will form a more experienced opinion on that. As of now, my 10 dedicated proxies are working fine. Thanks
