I have noticed in the past few weeks that the rank tracker 'check rankings' takes ages to run now.

What used to take 10 minutes to run and report takes like 40 minutes almost to run!

What is the issue?

Thanks

The reason is that now Rank Tracker is equipped with the internal anti-block system that is checking rankings in Google via our servers to prevent your IP from becoming blocked and to avoid Google captchas. That is why we set special pauses on our side for all incoming requests to prevent the system overloading, that is why the average checking time has increased.

Is there any way to disable that feature? I need to check tons of keywords and I dont want to wait a 10 min per kw.

You may disable the anti-block system under the Preferences - Search Safety Settings menu:

But note, that in this case all requests will be sent via your direct IP, so you will have to deal with Google captchas to be able to complete the rank checking task.

I think this also depends on your internet connection speed. :)
actually I don't think this is the issue I am having anyway, I am on fibre optic fast broadband...its clearly an issue on the link assistant side, as the admin described - they are slowing the process down it seems intentionally

it now takes around an hour or more to run, eg 800 keywords.

This has only been happening to me for the past 5 days or so that I’ve noticed, but my keyword scan is incredibly slow. I have 3 projects that scan everyday at the same time. It used to take 30 minutes to run all three. It’s been over 5 hours & it’s still "working" though the progress doesn’t update for long stretches of time. Something is up -- please advise if this can be fixed.

yes in fact now it has slowed to a halt. It ran for 6 hours, got to 51% and then it gave up.

Can you please advise Link-assistant?

What is wrong with the ranking scans?
