A couple of months ago, I told you that Bad Neighborhood was going to be rolling out some new tools. One has just been rolled out, and I've been waiting for it for a long time. It checks the ranking keyword phrase in several Google datacenters. Yes, there are other tools out there that also do this, but this one does it better, if only because it doesn't have the erroring out problems of the most popular one. It is called the Google Multiple Datacenter Keyword Rank Checker (whew, what a mouthful), and it is both visually easy on the eyes, as well as fast. Do try it out. Oh and wanna know a secret?
It's not done yet. There will be new features added that are going to make this tool dance like a bunch of mexican jumping beans.

Hmm. It would be nice to also show the IP addresses of the datacentre selection.
It is quite a small selection; I assume based on the old 2004-era lists that most people still seem to be using.
I also meant to add:
Why are there two addresses for GFE-KC?
What is so special about that block?
hover your mouse over the name of a dc to see its ip address
I started with a couple of blocks, removed the dead servers, added in a few, and tweaked it so I had what, for me, showed the most variation when searching.
Later on, after I get a couple of other tools I am working on finished, I will be modifying the DC selection to one that supports a more a la carte style, with a broader range to choose from.
You do know that Google has over 2000 valid and active IP addresses spread over at least 40 Class-C blocks of IP addresses?
No, actually I’m not aware of that. As far as I know, on each Class C there is usually a small handful of active IP addresses that can be reached via public networks, and even with those not all are accessible from the US (and not all US ones reachable from outside either). Where did you hear different? I mean, what you’re saying sounds more like the kind of unsubstantiated rumor mongering you would get off of a forum that didn’t bother fact checking.
Btw, by handful, I mean closer to 16 or so per Class C, rather than the more than 50 you would need to get the numbers you mention.
Today 21 July, Google should update their datacenter base on regular update schedule, but still not yet come
**No, actually Im not aware of that.**
Oh? You already printed a copy on SEO Scoop of the IP address list that I made last year. The list is still over at SEF where it was originally published, but there are already a large number of changes to make to it. Google is evolving all the time.
g1smd, are you confusing me with mvandemar? i am not he, and he is not me, and his tool is not mine, nor is it a product of seo scoop.
No I’m not mixing you with him, but he is in this thread…
True, but your comment before this implied that by me printing a copy of your IP list on scoop last year, that his statement “no, i’m not actually aware of that” had some connection…which of course it doesn’t.
I didn’t post any such thing.
No offense, but not only do you seem to have trouble keeping track of who you are talking to, and who did what, but your sense of proportion seems to be way off when it comes to large lists of numbers.
I just consolidated the full list you posted and have kept updated. You posted a grand total of 754 datacenter IP’s. I haven’t actually processed them, but I do know a few of those are definitely non functioning at this time. That is a far cry from your statement of “over 2000 valid and active IP addresses”… although I do commend you for the effort you did there. Great list.
There are more datacenters than what I have listed, true, but they tend to have similar results across Class C’s, or sometimes when they share the last octet, and what is provided there does give a decent sampling. Yes, Google is constantly changing, and the ones active today might very well not be active tomorrow… but honestly, I’m not sure what that has to do with this tool right now. If a DC dies, I’ll choose another, no big deal.
Thanks for inform this tools. But, I think it’s to heavy to load
By the way, the tool was broken for a little while now. I fixed it this morning.
Thanks for the tool! really helpful in determining my sites ranking in other datacenters
