    Great idea but against Google’s rules…

  • Freud

    Why is this against google’s rules?

  • Linda Buquet

    I’ve been a BETA tester for this tool for quite awhile and it works great. I’ve been BETA testing others too and this is by far the best. HUGE time saver.

    Kudos to BrightLocal!

    From Google:

    “Don’t use unauthorized computer programs to submit pages, check rankings, etc.
    Such programs consume computing resources and violate our Terms of Service.
    Google does not recommend the use of products such as WebPosition Gold™ that send automatic or programmatic queries to Google.”

    Whether this program complies or not, I don’t know.

    I recommend spending an hour to set up your own manual rank checking process, keeping track using spreadsheets.

    It’s really not that hard and you don’t have to share your keyword info w/ other “marketing/consulting agencies (e.g., BrightLocal).

    I am very skeptical of using such tools, even more after reading Google quality guidelines.

    look at the image i have attached, in this search result above the url of the website there are some extra random links “website Builder- creating Free Websites-Website Builder-Step By Step”

    Can anyone tell me how these extra links are coming? how this can be done?

    Hello just wanted to update that you actually have to register now to use this web app with a trial basis.

  • Chapman Air

    Looks like a great tool, and I have run a trial on it, not too sure about purchasing it. Someone above said it is “against Google’s quality guidelines” If you use it only to monitor your rankings and keep track, and not do submissions – is that still forbidden by google?
