I have literally started using Search Diggity for the first time today, but I keep getting this error no matter what type of scan I try to run. Scanning paused [01/03/2014 19:24:44]. An error occurred causing the engine to delay further execution. Auto-resuming in 15 minutes.

Use the APIs for Google / Bing / SHODAN, instead of scraping (default) - works perfect. In SearchDiggity, go to Help -> Contents for more guidance on how to do this.

This happens because the BOT gets detected by the Google Search crawlers. There is a blog post on the official website of the software where the whole process is explained. Access the website and carefully read all the instructions posted. Technically, you will have to use another API instead of the default one.
