How can we improve Traffic Travis?

Human Emulation

TT allows you to enter Google's captchas, but eventually it will (and does) block you, and block you for quite a while. Could there not be built into TT some sort of 'human emulation' algorithm which slows down the speed of scrapes so Google doesn't get too annoyed too quickly? I use another program with human emulation, and I can get 50 keywords to a depth of 3 or 4 pages without hitting a captcha.

Oddly enough, the creator of that program's name is Dmitry. :)

Thanks guys.

    Hi Rob,

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    If you go to File > Program Options > Internet you'll see an option labeled "Timer Delay." This is the length of time Traffic Travis puts between queries and is normally set to seven seconds. You can increase the number to slow down the rate at which queries go out and reduce your odds of getting blocked by Google.

    P.S. We took care of that pesky typo for you. :-)
