In it's Webmaster Guidelines Google says:

 "Don't use unauthorized computer programs to submit pages, check rankings, etc. Such programs consume computing resources and violate our terms of service. Google does not recommend the use of products such as WebPosition Gold™ that send automatic or programmatic queries to Google". http://www.google.com/webmasters/guidelines.html

There are alternatives depending on what exactly you want to do?

OK, you can't get more explicit than that!  What do we want?  The same as everyone, I suppose - high listings for a few targeted search words.  I can't get into the details of which ones in an open forum.

Sorry, I meant what is it that you specifically wanted to do with WPG!

For example if you wanted to monitor your position (and your competitors) in the Google SERPs for your keywords then this free online tool is very good (Search Engine Keyword Tracker & Keyword Ranking Tool) http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/faq.html

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

I don't use tools so much and there is no magic wand for SEO just hard work!

Exactly right.

1) Build a quality website.
2) Make sure it's optimized for SE's.
3) Promote it carefully and responsibly.

No tricks, no shortcuts.  Those things are too specific and too dynamic to be effectively automated with software.

WebPosition Gold is wonderful for checking how optimized your page is for particular Search Engines, plus it is updated regularly.  I work for a company the does SEO on pages for clients and this is a central tool of ours.

If you work for an SEO company whos 'central tool' is a $300 software package that Google dissaproves of then it's time you looked for a new job or went to College.

Grow up and instead of insulting, try saying something constructive.  Google only recommends not using it for submssion.  If you don't like it, then your free to say so, but show some maturity.

By the way we get excellent results by using our methods.  Do a google search for our homepage with 'Small Business Consulting'.  We come up #1 out of over 5 million results.

I'm a WPG user and I debated/researched it for 2 years before biting the bullet and making the purchase.

I thought I knew a decent amount about SEO until I bought WPG and started taking my pages through the steps.  I don't use the submission tool and I use the reporter tool sparingly.  I must say though that the page analyzer with WPG is fantastic.  It tells you exactly how your pages stack up to the top ranking pages, what you need to do to improve upon them, and why you need to do it.

I've gone from not being ranked at all to increasing my rankings on a few specific keywords (slowly but surely) over the last 60 days.

Overall, I'm extremely happy with WPG and the 3.0 interface is a major improvement.

Hope this helps!
