Is There A Tutorial For the DP Keyword Tracker? I'm Having Issues With It!

Discussion in 'Keyword Tracker' started by tvanslooten, Aug 25, 2011.

    I uploaded the php file to one of my domains, completed the settings here on DP, and while I can enter keywords just fine, the tool won't return any ranking results. I put in 2 keywords as a test and then proceeded to check the rankings and the tool just hangs. It doesn't return any results nor do I get any error messages.

    This looks like it could be a cool and useful tool but it would be nice if there was more detailed instructions and a trouble-shooting guide.

    Hmmmm... it's relatively straight forward. What's the URL that you have the PHP script running at? I'll do some testing to see if your server is doing something weird.

    That's what I thought. It seems very straight forward and everything works - except it won't actually pull any rankings for me. I'll PM you the url.

    Thanks,

    Looks like the server is throwing a 403 Forbidden error when it tries to utilize the PHP script (if you click one of your keywords manually, it will show you the exact thing that your server is giving).

    Can you test adding a keyword/URL combo with just the domain in the URL (no http:// ). Sometimes servers are overly protective and think something with a URL in the request is an attack of some sort.

    That's exactly what it was! I just had to drop the http:// and the www so it was just: domain.com. Now it works perfectly. Thanks for your help!
