Q: How does SERP Checker compare to Squirrly’s Performance Analytics and the Google Rank check that it offers there?
A: The Squirrly Google Rank checker is good if you’re just starting out and rankings are not that important yet. The data it provides is 100% accurate, so there are no problems on that front. However, we’ve seen that most of our Squirrly SEO Plugin users experience problems with Google queries, because they are on Shared Hostings and they have Shared IPs. Because of this, it means your site is not alone there. It means that many other sites, tools, plugins or people from that same hosting / IP are asking Google for information. Because there is an overload of queries, Google blocks the IP. It does not ban from search results, BUT it does not allow that IP to ask it any more questions for a certain period of time. You can try asking it from that IP when this happens. You will see that if you search on Google, it will not return you any results. By using the SERP Checker built by the same company, you will no longer have a problem with your shared hosting or shared IP. This happens due to the fact that the SERP Checker takes the information from other third parties. So it will no longer look like it asks for information from Google. We pay a lot of money ourselves for this information. This product is intended to help those of you who need to know the exact Rankings, without having your IP blocked. You can search the web and see that tools which show accurate data about SERPs cost over $100 / month. That means we ourselves pay a lot of money to be able to serve you all this. It’s easy for you: you get everything for $49 / month.
