So, why did we have to go through that when I had already made the point you were trying to make?????
That was a waste of my time ... and yours ... and that of anyone who bothers to read all posts between that one and this! I love ya, John, and you're brilliant and can be a good teacher ... but that was a pointless exercise, as it turns out.
If you felt the point was not made clearly enough, you could have simply repeated it with a line that went something like: GoogleRankings is useless for anyone who doesn't have the SOAP API ...
