Hi all, As an SEO, there's still tremendous value in knowing what the rankings are for keywords within search engines. There's plenty of tools out there that 'do the job' but nothing robust enough to tick the following two boxes:
- Ease of use - Comply with Google's ToS (no scraping allowed)
I suppose my question is (ignoring <snip>) how can we measure bulk ranks quickly and easily endearing to Google's ToS? I'm actually looking for a legitimate solution rather than going down the proxy root.
Does anyone have any ideas?

You want to consider looking at the adwords preview tool. Also Google licenses their search results to outside websites. You may consider crawling those websites for rankings but you may find the rankings are not exactly the same as Google's serps.
