    I depend completely on SEOquake for all my IM activities. It's the reason I have to put up with the lumbering Firefox browser which crashes every 10 minutes. If only I could get an SEO plugin for Chrome. I'd switch to SEO for Firefox but it doesn't meet my needs.

    Anyway, I'm happily scanning a site: list on google (100 results) for PR when suddenly, SEOquake stops returning PR and just gives PR n/a for everything.

    This is happening more and more frequently. Has anybody else had this problem / know a solution?

    Thanks

    Micallef.

    Its likely because your hammering google.
    If you're lucky your ISP gives you a different IP every time you disconnect from it. I just log into my router and disconnect/reconnect with my ISP and get assigned a new IP. I then clear cache and continue.

    I am pretty sure their site was down yesterday. I wasn't getting any keywords from thekeyword checker and all of the PRs were showing N/A. I went to the site and it wouldn't even load up. It's working fine today though.

    Btw, check for viruses, because firefox is awesome, and if its acting slow for you, you probably have a virus ( atleast i had the same problem and it fixed it )

    100 listings has a lot of requests so its most likely your ip got banned...try in a few hours or later

    Thanks for the responses.

    It's a shame that I can't easily switch my IP, as the bans are holding back my spamming quite a bit.

    In the beginning I might load up 10 or 20 pages of 100 results in a single session and scan them for high PR pages. Now I'm lucky if I can get 2 or 3 so I think Google have cracked down on this.

    I've found it does help, however, if you turn off SEOquake for normal browsing, reducing the number of server requests.

    I have this same issue (getting a temporary ban). Here is what has worked for me everytime.

    1. Clear all cookies, etc., from the 'History' tab - sometimes this alone is enough to re-enable the SEOQuake function.

    2. Enable a proxy from within Firefox.

    If you do both steps you should not have any problems. You may still have to clear all cookies, etc., from time to time, but it works 100% of the time for me.

    Hope this helps.

    It's deffinately becuase you are putting in too many requests to Google with that tool.

    That is one of the reasons I keep a Sprint Air Card on hand. It runs with it's own control panel and whenever Google gives you the read light you click the "Disconnect" button and then "Connect" and you've got a fresh IP.

    I also use it for Bookmarking Demon as well.

    Im having the exact same problem. I can't search for backlinks for more than about 15-30 mins per 3 hours.

    I also have the same problem in that i have a static IP so I just have to wait it out.

    Really sucks!

    The only solution I can find so far is to buy some good proxies.

    i've cleared my cookies, cache and IP and still getting n/a ... i guess it's because the ip is from the same class of ips.

    i'll try proxies .. meantime if someone has a better solution to this please let me know

    The temp IP ban is probably one of google's most effective weapons against spammers - my productivity is way down.

    It's just something we're either going to have to spend time or money getting around.

    It's about $100 for a bunch of paid proxies that should keep you rolling fine for about a month.

    If you can't afford that, then I guess you just have to pay using your time, i.e. just treating the job of finding a working free proxy as half your workload (it takes me forever to get a proxy that actually works).

    As for firefox, I downloaded this fix as johnjaws suggested:

    http://www.crystalidea.com/speedyfox

    I have noticed a significant increase in speed.

    SEOQuake gets you temporarily banned in google. Try searching and looking at the search pages till the 10th page and surely on the 11th you'll be notified that Google temporarily banned your IP
