Keyword Verification Tool

If true, would using this keyword verification tool from marketleap pose potential problems?

FWIW, if anyone were to get in trouble for it, it would be MarketLeap, not the person using the tool...I believe!

Jill, you must be right though since anyone could test a site other than their own and cause a penelty if it was otherwise (i.e., competitor sabatoge).
Given it is technically against the TOS would you have any problems using it on your own site? Something in that "against TOS" makes me a tad hesitant...

I don't think Google is all that concerned about rank checking software unless it is abused and then they may take action to block the IP address from which that person is abusing their system with rank checking software. I think if a guy were to check his positioning several times a day, every day, that might trigger an alarm at Google and they could then block the IP address from which he is searching from.
We have used various rank checking software programs for years with no problems at all. The key is to not over use the software and if one is really paranoid, don't check positioning for your domain.

if you do use the wrong type of quick acting web based automated software google will ban your sites ability to be able to search from it - but they do not delist the web site
perhaps i know the wrong way
using it occasionally is no big deal if it is on someone elses site. there are also some places out there that sell the same type of software that is on Marketleaps website. the only thing that is no good is that most of these software packages do not include anything for Teoma

Also, one thing to note, is that you *can* apply for written permission from Google to use automated query tools (without using the Google API), although who knows if they would grant it or not. I'm sure they would just rather you use the API.
