SEO Tool: Search Engine position checker

SEO Tools: Advanced position checkerI've just finished developing a stable release of quite an advanced SEO tool, I called it "position checker".
What it does is it crawls the selected search engines upon a list of given queries, and it tries to find matches with your site. If it finds them it tells you on which page and where was it linking.
It is pretty fast, and it allows you to easily know how well your website ranks for certain search queries.

How it works:

It uses a lot of arrays to store the information, since it helped me a lot simplifying the task of handling multiple streams of information and comparing them looking for matches.
To crawl and extract the links I've used a class I've found at php classes, which is based in curl.

The full code and test page can be downloaded here:

If you have any suggestion, comment, or improvement for this idea, please comment!

  1. This looks like a nice tool!

    I’ve got some questions for you:
    1) As you probably heard, several rank checker automated tools stopped working on Google. Does your tool uses proxies, and API?
    2) Where are you parsing the results from?
    3) Does it have human emulation?

    I just run a query for a site and the results were ok, but not all them showed up :(

    thanks,

    Augusto

  2. It does not use a proxy or API, this tool emulates human-run queries, with a time limit to prevent it from being blocked.
    The results are parsed from a normal results page, using a crawler bot that I modified from a version I found in PHP Classes. If you are interested in the source code you can download the source code from the article page and read through it, it is commented so it should be easy.
    Thanks for the interest!
