Yes, something like what you are describing could easily be confused 
with a DOS attack.

DOS attacks are done by flooding a server with requests for webpages 
to the point that the server crashes due to its inability to process 
all the requests.

Even if you are not considered a DOS attack, the company may not 
appreciate the bandwith that is being used for you to continually 
index their site and may deny your IP address access at some point.
