I've just returned to Keyword Tracker

    I haven't used Keyword Tracker for several months. I ran it today and it appears that it is not getting any results for either Bing or Yahoo. Is that correct?

    The other problem I had is it did not finish searching all keywords. I haven't added any new keywords and have never had this problem in the past. The error I get is: Error returned from search engine: Daily Limit Exceeded

    It can't get results from Yahoo any longer... Yahoo doesn't have it's own search engine any longer (after transitioning to Bing)... which means they also don't have their own search spider or index. As a result, Yahoo has also shut down their API (no point in having an API to query something they don't have)...

    http://developer.yahoo.com/blogs/ydn/posts/2010/08/api_updates_and_changes/

    That being said, Bing and Google should work fine (I just tested and they do indeed work fine).

    For the issue you are having with Bing, if you haven't updated the script it uses lately, you may want to (it certainly wouldn't hurt): http://tools.digitalpoint.com/tracker?do=settings

    For Google, they have a 100 query per day limit for their free API keys. But you CAN enter an unlimited number of free API keys in your settings by separating them with a pipe... for example: "key1|key2|key3|key4|key5|key6|key7". And you can get an unlimited number of keys under a single Google account by creating different "projects" for them.

    Shawn is it possible and easy to remove the Yahoo listing from all the ranking reports. I copy and paste these reports and email them to my SEO clients. It would be better if Yahoo wasn't listed.

    Still trying to decide what's the best thing to do with them... Some people still want them for historical reasons (even if there isn't any new data).
