    I am a developer by trade and I am building a tool that is similar to serpify.me and I wanted some feedback. The bot would basically:

    1. login to webmaster tools to track which keywords Im being searched on
    2. login to adwords keyword research to get related terms
    3. use google to search for these keywords and click through on my site
    4. interact with site, visit a few pages
    5. do this through a set of proxies

    I was wondering if anyone had experience building something like this, or if it sounds like a useful idea. I know that organic CTR and bounce rate is becoming an important factor for SERPS. The issue I have is with proxies and running a headless browser to do this.

    Is it likely for google to identify this technique if used through headless Chrome? What about phantomJS? Would google become suspicious if I used 1 proxy? 10 proxies? 100 proxies?

    Thanks for your input.

    Hi

    Another member has launched a beta with a similar bot you are talking. CTR is not just becoming important, CTR is the KEY to rank, the most important factor right now.
    Can I ask you what is phantomJS?
    Thank you

    phantomJS is a headless browser that is usually used for testing but is good for scraping and doing whatever you can usually do with a normal browser, in code. it can execute javascript which makes it useful for a lot of things that php can't do alone. what is the bot that the other member has launched?

    I can also support if needed. Very interesting.

    An additional feature worth considering would be to name a competitor to randomly select first, bounce back to the SERP within 5-25 seconds and then visit your site. Gets the double whammy of suppressing competitors' user metrics while boosting your own.

    Google can easily detect you if you use PhantomJS. Also be careful when using User agent spoofing. You can't hide what you're using under the hood through user agent.
