Maybe, as reported in their license, it would be possible since I don't
think that we really use their data (i.e. search results them selves)
but only the number of the results they have for a single word, and this
shouldn't be nothing of bad for them, considering also that the script
ask only a result per page and that the search time is always really low.

Anyone could contact the G? BTW we could also using another search
engine as source...
