I'm trying to set up my Gmail account in Rank Tracker and it's saying that I've configured it incorrectly. I know I've done it right but it still doesn't work.

It DID work for a while but all of a sudden it doesn't and I can't figure it out.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? Seems to me it would be an actual Google issue but I thought I would ask here anyway.

Thanks for any help.

It is possible that the software can not log into your Google account due to some extra verification step. Try to open your account via some external browser, click log out and then log in once again and make sure to pass all verification steps that may appear.

I also recommend you to visit this page:

and make sure you allow less secure apps to log into your account.

I had this same issue and found that setting up an app-specific password in my Google Account fixed the issue. Seems that Google does not allow these type of connections normally.

Hope that helps!
