I want to start a discusion with regards to ranking report frequency.
As I'm sure you all know, it is now common for SE's to penalize sites that query their indexes with automated ranking software. As an SEO adviser to many clients it would be ideal if I could run such reports monthly, however this comes at a risk of being penalized.
I now offer my clients quarterly reports, querying the engines 4 times a year - I'm sure that this would not hinder our rankings, do you agree?

>>What good is a report that says you are number 1 for widgets when everybody searches for blue widgets.
Exactly. I've been on a reeducation mission for over a year now. When a client starts asking about rank I start asking about sales. It only takes a few redirects to shift the client's focus to what's important.
