The screen was first reported in 2005, and was a response to the heavy use of Google by search engine optimization companies to check on ranks of sites they were optimizing. The message may also be triggered by high volumes of different searches from a single IP address. Google apparently uses the Google cookie as part of its determination of refusing service.
Google applies query expansion to the submitted search query, transforming it into the query that will actually be used to retrieve results.
As with page ranking, the exact details of the algorithm Google uses are deliberately obscure, but certainly the following transformations are among those that occur:
• • •
Term reordering: in information retrieval this is a standard technique to reduce the work involved in retrieving results. This transformation is invisible to the user, since the results ordering uses the original query order to determine relevance. Stemming is used to increase search quality by keeping small syntactic variants of search terms. There is a limited facility to fix possible misspellings in queries.

How it Works?
• Google has a bot which spiders the web for content, which it then includes in the index. • For image results, Google uses a different bot, which indexes only image results.
• The key difference between the two is that the image bot visits much less frequently. • While Googlebot may visit every week, Googlebot-image may only visit your site every 6 months. • Getting images indexed is a very slow process.
Google Image Labeler is a new feature of Google Image Search that allows you to label random images and help improve the quality of Google's image search.
