I am getting the following error scraping Google from python:
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 503: Service Unavailable
Strange thing is that I can view results through a browser on the same machine(same IP etc) no problem. I am already masquarding the "User Agent Id' to mimic Firefox. I am also collecting in the cookies and feeding these back with the request.
Does anyone have an idea as to how Google will be telling the Python screen scraper versus the browser apart? Perhaps some other header in the request?
I would be very grateful to get anybodys thoughs and experiences on this.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
