Google Sets 10 Monthly Multiple URLs Crawl Quota Due to Abuse

Earlier this month, Google added a captcha to their crawl and submit to index feature in the Google Search Console's Fetch as Google tool. Now, Google has set a quota to how many times you can use the "multiple URLs" submission method in that tool to 10 per month.

Google's John Mueller said on Twitter that this quota is only "temporary" and was due to abuse. It is unclear for how long Google will have to keep this quote, the single URL method has a 500 per month quota, as opposed to a 10 per month quota.

Here is a picture of the change:

Here is the tweet showing John's response on why the change:

You give us nice tools and then someone abuses it and Google has to take it away.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: It seems this quota is not new, so I am not sure why John replied like that?
