    Hi,

    I'm using both Rank Tracker and Advanced Web Rankings (Enterprise version). I like AWR features the most, but it is way slower than Rank Tracker. I mean, RT takes less than 2 hours for a project with 2000 keywords (using 10 private proxies), while AWR took yesterday 20 to finish the same project!!

    I've contacted support and they say it's because my proxies get banned and they need some time to recover, but... how come RT can still use the proxies and get accurate rankings? I guess they use a different method to query Google servers, any ideas or suggestions?

    Thank you

    Our firm switched to Advance Web Ranking because Rank Tracker Enterprise was returning wildly inaccurate results for a period of several months. Maybe they've improved since the time we left, idk. They used to be the best but last 6mo of 2012 their results turned to shit.

    Also, check your settings in AWR there are lots of little tweaks that could improve your speed. Make sure you don't have the be friendly to search engines mode on, that really slows things down. Also, you might wanna consider investing in more or higher quality private proxies. We've been having good experience with Trusted Proxies (exclusively for rank checking purposes).

    Thanks, but I've already tried everything (I think). I'm using "human emulation" settings as support told me:

    http://www.advancedwebranking.com/forums/topic13974-blocked-by-google-today.html

    Max simultaneous queries: 10
    Random delay between queries 25 to 30 seconds
    Sleep 3 minutes after every 50 queries
    Sleep 15 minutes if engine fails 1 time


    If I turn off "be frienly to search engines" my proxies are banned. About proxies, I get the around same response time for the ones I have from Limeproxies. I tried Trusted Proxies, not big difference. I guess that's because I'm using Spain proxies, which are harder to get and way more expensive.

    What I don't understand is why Rank Tracker can still use proxies right after they give 503s on AWR.

    Thanks!
