Best way to track ranking: manual or automated?

Postby trek101 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 1:03 pm

Hey, guys,
Just wanted to get your opinion. What do you think is the best way to monitor site rankings if I have about 100 keywords to check daily? I get so tired of doing it by hand :|
I'm a bit afraid to use software... Can search engines ban me for that? Somebody suggested that I use Rank Tracker by link-assistant. I checked their site, looks nice, there is a trial version if I wanted to try it. It also says (on their blog) that their Rank Tracker is the most search engine-safe one. What do think, guys? Can I get in trouble if I use it?

I use the free version. I doubt you will get into trouble for using it. It just does a search and looks for your link. If I remember right, it also emulates human behavior. (a fast human)...

If google thinks someone is automating their search results, they just start putting up a captcha image before displaying more results...

Hope that helps. Good Luck.
