Hey, as some other users have commented, it looks like the tool is not working. I get a #REF error when I try.

If anyone has any solution for this I’d be really thankful.



Jaco 31 October 2019 - 3:15 pm

Hi Juan, I’ve updated this tool so the Unlinked Brand Mentions finder should be back in business.

Gerjan 30 July 2019 - 8:42 am

Hi, the tool worked the first time I opened it. After that, I keep getting #REF! in the results.
Also when I make a new copy from you’r original document, without changing anything.
I really think this tool is great when it works, so I hope you have a solution.
Already subscribed to you’r newsletter, in case you have to send a new upgrade.

Thanks already,

Jaco 30 July 2019 - 8:51 am

This does happen occasionally, still not sure why, but we’ll keep monitoring. Best is to try again later and let me know if this is still an issue?

Gerjan 11 August 2019 - 5:53 pm

Sorry, but I’m trying again after a long holiday and stil receiving the same error. Maybe there is an other problem?

laura 19 July 2019 - 1:28 pm


I’m getting an error that the reference does not exist. Can you help?


Jaco 21 June 2019 - 5:18 pm

I’ve released v4.0 of the unlinked brand mentions finder, it’s limited to the first 100 results returned by Google, enjoy :D.

Ruta 14 June 2019 - 7:18 am

Hello. Could you please help me? It looks like formula is not working.
I have changed B3 to
and B4 to
travel planet -site:travelplanet.lt -site:travelplanet.pl -site:travelplanet.de -site:youtube.com
It shows in A10:
SyntaxError: Unexpected token: u (line 6).

Where is the issue? please help 🙂

Jaco 14 June 2019 - 7:23 am

awesome tool btw =)

Jaco 6 December 2018 - 8:12 am

Thanks, click cell C10 and change “=getURL(“https://www.google.com/search?q=” & B4 & “&num=” & B5)” to “=getURL(“https://www.google.se/search?q=” & B4 & “&num=” & B5)” you could also add “&hl=swedish” to set the interface language.

Hi Guys, I’ve update the free brand unlinked mentions finder to version 3.0. This fixes the error you have been experiencing (Google blocking automated searches). The tool now pulls the top 100 results by default and follows each to check for a backlink or possible opportunity (lack thereof).

Gert-Jan 3 October 2018 - 9:30 am

I think we need a new version, all I get is #ERROR ! Am I doing something wrong ?

Jaco 6 October 2018 - 11:30 pm

This has been fixed in version 3.0.

Milan 27 September 2018 - 11:27 am

Hi Ranktank!

I tried using your tool for http://www.aquivemedia.nl but A10 only gives me #errors! Any idea how I can fix this?

Jaco 6 October 2018 - 11:30 pm

Please check the new version Milan.

Jelmer 26 September 2018 - 9:37 am

Seems to be something wrong: #ERROR!
Could anyone fix this?

Jaco 6 October 2018 - 11:30 pm

Jelmer, the new version should fix this for you.

Yarina 22 August 2018 - 2:12 pm

There is a problem with the script.
Guys really ask to check and make edits
This is a very cool tool, thanks!

Jaco 6 October 2018 - 11:31 pm

Yarina, please try the new version and provide me with some feedback.

Yarina 23 November 2018 - 11:02 am

Hey, how can I search for a two word or more phrase? I get an error if I search for something such as “hotel name”. The quotes don’t seem to work?
