    Hi,
    SEMrush
    When creating tools for SEO like a page rank display do you need to write some T&S so google won't come after you or your site?

    Thanks...

    More than likely, Google would simply block your IP address. There are no special terms and conditions you can add that makes it "okay" (unless you get written permission from Google).

    google could also change the checksum formula to block any PR tools.

    Has anyone had a ip block here...

    I remeber when PR search used to be on webmaster brain that that got blocked!!...

    But correct me if i'm wrong but that was because of the advertising next to the API results....

    How do people get around it ?

    a new IP could cost a fair wack.... does it just block the IP.. for the API? or toolbarquires.google as well ?
