Why does Google search ask me to type in letters or words all day long?

A simple 4 step guide for solving this common Google problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman

Google issued an update called ReCAPTCHA which is intended to stops spam bots from bothering you while you browse the internet. You can read all about it here https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/index.html
You are getting these messages if Google thinks you are loading too many websites too quickly. You can spend a little more time on each website to stop this from happening.
You can also try clearing your browser's cache and history. This is usually under the Preferences tab on your browser, or some times you can see the Clear History option on the menu.
Or you can just keep entering the Captcha when prompted. That's what we do here at GetHuman!
