Know Issues

1. I get some blank rows without a result, even after waiting a few minutes. The request failed and you need to retry it by cutting and pasting the keyword in the cell again. Alternatively select “Reset” and “Run” again to re-scan all keywords. In addition you can also look at using the new RankTank Google Sheet Add-on with automated intelligent retries.

2. I am getting no results or not ranked for all keywords. Make sure you’re online, not blocking any sheet permission and that you’re only using your desired domains TLD e.g. and not http(s):// etc.

WIP: How does local results affect rankings?

The beta version of the local result keyword position rank checker tool allows you to set your region, language and local area (city, airport, municipality etc.). Importantly you can now pull all of the Google SERP local keyword rankings. We use the “uule” parameter or “near” parameter in order to filter by locale.

In conclusion the local search rankings tool is a complex work in progress, hence the beta tag. In short we use the Google Adwords location information to generate local search results based on the “uule” parameter. Most importantly this is the same parameter Google uses in it’s own SERPs. Should it not be possible to calculate the “uule” parameter we fall back to using the more general “near” parameter in order to filter the results.

Hi Jaco, thanks for this helpfull tool. How can I do this: “Set this sheet up to run on a schedule, and you’ve got yourself a free automated SERP rank checker.”???
I have no experience with google sheets. Please can you point me in the right direction?

Hi Jaco,

there a way to see how a kwsmovement without going from tab to tab?

Andy 26 October 2020 - 5:46 am

Doesn’t seem to be working.
Tried with two domains. A .com and a .services.
All keywords failed over and over again.

Jaco 26 October 2020 - 7:18 am

Hi Andy, we are not aware of any issues, perhaps send me a screenshot of your sheet and I’ll assist. Also ensure you’re entering only and not http(s):// or www.

Jenny Kelly 19 October 2020 - 5:12 am

Can I somehow search for keywords of any given website URL or I’ll have to enter specific keywords to see the rankings?

Jaco 19 October 2020 - 5:57 am

Hi Jenny, you should be entering specific keywords to obtain rankings.

allana 17 October 2020 - 8:53 pm

Great tool Jaco!! Is there a way to see movement of a keywords on one sheet or do you create something in data studio?

Jaco 19 October 2020 - 5:58 am

Hi Allana, thanks for the positive feedback, you could custom develop something in the Google Sheet, but Data Studio may be your simpler bet.

allana 19 October 2020 - 8:19 pm

Getting a 429 error now on both the version 30 and version 27 Keyword Position Checker tools, even though I am using the same list of keywords that I have for years. Somehow the API is now being overwhelmed with requests, even though it is the exact same 50 requests. Any ideas on a fix?

Jaco 5 August 2020 - 9:41 am

Hi, yes that’s possible as the free usage is incredibly high at the moment, about 10 million requests a day. The best would be to upgrade to get a API key for $10/month ( on the legacy sheet or $9/month on the Google Sheet add-on ( This guarantees your requests get priority.
