phpSERA - Search Engine Ranking Analyzer
phpSERA is a PHP/MySQL-based tool for Search Engine Ranking Analysis (SERA). The rankings are based on parsing output of search engines, using simple regular expressions. Given one or more search engines, one or more keyphrases and a single URL to look for, phpSERA connects to the search engine(s), parses the result pages and displays a ranking report. Parsing is done by stripping the header and footer of result pages using quick'n'dirty regular expressions (frequently updated and available from this website). Finally, the result list is split using some separator and phpSERA returns your ranking(s). Uses ADODB, so it should support MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSAccess, etc (I only tested MySQL).Visit publisher site: phpSERA - Search Engine Ranking Analyzer

I'd love to give this five stars, but there are a number of problems with it, and it flat out just doesn't work properly. Installation though was very simple. There are numerous problems, but for example, when I enter a "Quick Ranking" I get "not listed" on several search engines (Yahoo, MSN). When I go to the search engines manually and type in the exact same phrase, I'm clearly listed there at the number 2 spot. Sometimes this thing shows me at number 1, but when I go manually, I'm way down on the ranking. How can I use this if the numbers are almost always totally wrong?
