People who run their own websites- Would you use software that automatically makes changes to your site in order to improve search engine ranking?

Google do not like you resubmitting your website multiple times, and as SimplySteve has said your site will get banned.

From my experience its far easier and in some cases quicker to do it manually, and more likely to achieve the expected results. My site was always on the first page and often one of the top five, now its normally on the first or second page.

Seeing as nowadays being at the top of the list of organic results is often just not enough, would your software also optimise for featured snippets?

Yes, I do my SEO myself. It isn't time-consuming nor is it complicated imho.
Grammar and spelling there's already so much available out there to check and change. However, none are infallible and still require the human eye to double check regardless of paid or free.

And I was always top of searches.

Yes, with guidance from the website designer.

No, I wouldn't. I want full control. Plus what changes would it make?
I have to add media to the site myself.
I have to add a pricing structure
I have to add anything else
So for your software to automatically change I would have to send it somewhere. So makes sense to save cash and just do it myself.
Plus this would require me giving you login credentials. Not a chance. Good luck to anyone daft enough really.

There have been numerous pieces of software fulfilling this over the years. Google's SERP protocols and algorithms actively disallow automated solutions, to the point the website is suspended or banned from their listings.

Absolutely not. I wanted complete control over all content.
