    Hi, just started to use this tool a couple of days ago, and today, I cannot get it to return much results, using free and private proxies both. Anyone else has this experience, or are there certain settings to get it to work.

    Thanks!

    Which search engines are you selecting? It seems to be working for me, but I only select Google/mobile, Yahoo/mobile, Bing/mobile and use private proxies from anonymous-proxies.

    Have you checked your proxies for passing Google? Also, if you are running a lot of keywords, are you getting any captchas popping up?

    Thanks Meatro, I took your advice and switched to mobile SE's and it did help. Also I made it return 100 results in one shot (and then reducing delay between pages to zero- somehow the s/w still creates delays even after 100 results are returned all together). I use 10 private proxies. It is working very slowly, but I have not figured how to run 100's of keywords, that would take a long time. I may have to resort to some of the web-based offerings.

    I switched over to a web-based rank tracker - SerpBook to track my sites a few months ago

    You will most likely need more proxies for larger tasks such as hundreds of keywords. Here's an interesting article on how Rank Tracker works with proxy rotation and big projects.

    An interesting part that I think may be the cause here (although I don't know as I haven't seen your personal settings) is this:

    Here is the post from Link-Assistant that covers search safety settings and adjusting them for performance of your campaigns:

    Using private proxies definitely helps...but I had the problem where about 5 queries were stuck in "Paused..." when trying to retrieve results for Google. I had to disable the "data center rotation" flag and that solved my problem.

    I am using 37 keywords, 1000 deep w/o a problem now.
