Retrieving Google's Site returns a 503 (use Bing)

I'm not sure why, but if you have this: byte[] googleHome = webClient.DownloadData("https://www.google.com");

It won't work, and you'll get an Error: System.Net.WebException: 'The remote server returned an error: (503) Server Unavailable.'

If you update that to: byte[] bingHome= webClient.DownloadData("https://www.bing.com");

Then it works as anticipated.

FYI, if you're going to use bing, I suggest updating the Method and the variables to have "Bing" in the titles instead of Google.
