Process for Checking Rankings

1) I have the system set up on my server now and it is working. Right now, Enable Proxies is set to "Yes", but I have not added any proxies to the Proxy Manager. How is the system currently grabbing the data in this scenario? Is it using an API, a proxy in India or my own IP? Is it scraping the data (or simulating a user)?

If you enabled proxy and not added any proxies, then it will take crawl data from your IP. If you are adding many sites to seo panel then better to use paid proxies.
Currently seo panel is scraping the data from search engines.

2) How many ranking positions are retrieved? 100? 200?

Currently it is set to 100 by default but you can change it from database

3) I am concerned that I run the risk of getting my IP banned by using this tool. Is this a possibility? For example, I have the software installed on the domain of my main corporate site and I have 100+ other websites on the same server. If there is any risk, I could install this somewhere else. I have just heard that when you work with proxies, that you should plan on getting IP's banned?

If you are using more than 10 sites and 100 keywords its better to use proxies for generating reports. or you need to increase the crawling delay from system settings to 5 or 10 minutes depending on amount of sites. I recommend proxies in this case.

4) Does this use any of the API's from the search engines or just proxies to simulate a user (scrape the results)? If it uses the Google API, does it use SOAP, which is no longer being supported or is it using the new Ajax API?

Currently Seo Panel is using scraping method because API is not supported by google now.

5) When proxies are used, how does it cycle through the proxy IP's? First query goes to one IP, then the next query goes to the next IP and so on, or does it use the first proxy to go through all the queries for one website... (I just need to understand this process, since I have to explain it to my client)

When proxies are enabled, During each crawl(for a keyword in one search engine) it will take a random proxy from active proxy list. Thats why one proxy IP will not be overloaded.

6) I saw the links for the 2 resources for proxies. Are paid proxies better than the free proxies?

Its better to use paid proxies because they will be up for most of the time.

6) What time of day does the automatic cron run that updates the rankings?

Thats depends on your settings in cpanel crontab, normally it works on midnight(12 am) of a day.

5) Are there any plugins that address the issue of different types of users with different positions? I am looking for 3 additional roles... (SuperAdmin, Account Manager and user)... Those are in addition to my account access.

We already developed a seo panel with these 3 additional roles. We can provide you it for some donation.

Please contact us through - , so that we can show you that version.

Hi...According to me

If you have a short keyword list that you would like to manage closely, then I would recommend checking your rankings manually.

If you have a larger list of keywords and aren’t worried about any possible irregularities caused by such software, then I’d say go ahead and use the automated rank checkers…

It is completely up to you which method to use. Both methods yield almost the same result, with the exception of time spent.

The details you written here is certainly entertaining. I obtained knowledge on the matter promptly. Your weblog is really good. I may prefer to consume some time to visit your site to pick up additional details. Your blog site can be a strong profit machine in case you set up certain ads into it.

Hi, I am a new user and just installed this software to help me keep track of my sites. and I have several questions about the keyword positioning:
1. I wanted to make sure that my server's ip is not going to be banned or something when it is checking for keyword positioning as I have about 10 sites with around 50 keywords each (500 keywords).
I changed the "Delay between each spider crawl(seconds):" to 120. is it ok? do you think I can be more aggressive i.e make it 30 seconds delay? Can I have it done weekly? i think daily can be too aggressive on the server (im on a vps)
2. will it track google places results too?
3. I live in canada, do I need to have as search engine for accurate positioning?

1) Free version of seo panel is designed for personal use for each web master, thats why if you have more than 75 keywords, better use proxies. Or split the cron and run in some intervals.

We are working on new version of seo panel 3.2.0, in which we will add split cron feature. Hope new version can be released with a month.

The delay time 60 seconds is good.

2) Currently it will not track google places result.

3) Better you can check the positions in if your business mainly concentarted on canada.

You can order local search engine package from =>

Once order we will integrate it with your seo panel.

Thanks for your support.

Currently that is not implemented. It can be implemented as a plugin or extra feature. We will check it.
