Yes, you may have hammered Google quite hard or maybe abuse was identified
at your side. I used to make many automated requests daily before changing
that to twice a week due to some woe (now it's disabled altogether). Either

process that might invoke this kind of load or, like Dmitri suggested,
possible AdSense frauds?
