Search Engine Position Audting Software: Does It Exist?

By Deane Barker on January 11, 2006

I want a piece of software, and I’m hoping one of you out there knows where I can get it. I want software where I can specify:

  1. A search engine
  2. A search phrase
  3. A domain name

Then this piece of software will tell me the position of the first appearance of a page from that domain name under that phrase on that engine. Bonus points if you can script it so it runs every morning at, say, 6 a.m. and writes the results to a file.

I know that this can be done using a API key and some Perl for Google and Yahoo and such, but I was wondering if there’s some software that does this for all engines?



  1. Wow, didn’t know that!

    I’m sure it’s ok if you just use it for the reporting functions? Or are they worried about the volume of queries generated?

    I haven’t touched it since version 2 (about 4-5 years ago I think). Never really got into the swing of using it. Sounds like that was a good thing!
