    Sweetfunny or one of her cohorts told me recently that they are going to remove the index checker because 'it's useless' and they keep getting support tickets about it.

    I have no idea why it's said to be useless. I sent a support ticket about something else and they seem to have misunderstood that I was saying the index checker is useless. It's working just as well as it ever has...

    Now they can do what they want but I thought it might be worth letting other ppl know about this in case it might sway their decision to keep it.

    This is prob one of the tools I use most on SB and I imagine is for alot of others too. I know there are other index checker tools out there but I am used to the SB index checker and don't see good reason why it would be removed if it works fine.

    Anyway they will do what they want in the end but thought it was worth letting other know if it might sway things.

    I can't say I ever use it, nor will miss it if it goes. But I can imagine some people would. I can't really see the point in getting rid of it unless it's costing them too much time and money.

    I support this. I am sure that I will not bombard their support team with stupid queries.

    I'm guessing it is costing them time in terms of support tickets. It is not 100% reliable and if they are getting a lot of support tickets it would make sense to make some adjustments.

    I know guys that used to use that part of SB that have abandoned it due to it not being completely reliable.

    Still though, SB is one of the best tools money can buy and is under priced in my opinion.

    I have it on every computer I own.

    I think they're referring to the scrapebox rapid indexer available in the addons.

    Actually, they're referring to the functionality of "check in Google or Bing if page is indexed" :)

    I use index checker in Scrapebox each day to filter out my backlinks which are already indexed before I submit them to indexing services.

    I am also for leaving the index checker there, but I am pretty sure that he needs to update it and make it more reliable before placing it back, I don't really believe that he will completely remove it

    Who exactly said that? I mean "sweetfunny or one of her cohorts" is pretty loose. I don't believe that sweetfunny has ever defined anywhere who their "cohorts" are, so it would be hard to take anything as written in stone until sweetfunny their selves say it. But really, why would they go and talk about anything negative for their tool or what they are going to do?

    I mean I have emailed them in the past about feature requests or bugs or when somethings broken and they come back in a matter of hours with a new version with it fixed or added or whatever. Why talk about it, when they can just do it in 5 minutes and be done.

    Anyway, I am not saying their not, cause I haven't asked them, but can you tell us exactly who said that?

    If she removes it, I guess the only option will be to run Andy Black's index checker locally... :(

    i didnt make it up for fun.

    I am known in the sb support camp as a nuisance due to my constant questions but i wouldnt make something up.

    i have the email i will send you a copy if you like.

    how do i know who sent it? i was just talking to SB support and that is who the mail sender is written as.

    how the hell is it 'useless' to check whether links are indexed? a massive part of the battle is indexing the links above and beyond building them. i also use it very often as well.
