Advanced Web Ranking

My business works with clients from a variety of outlets, with budgets ranging from six figures down to triple digits (not kidding). There's a TON of analytical software out there, so speaking as a guy who has worked with them all (or at least quite a few) if your client is on a budget – particularly a startup – AWR is a great program to use. They've been around for a while, the desktop version is pretty bug-free and updates in real-time, and it's budget conscious.

Pros

Advanced Web Ranking

  • Advanced Web Ranking is a low-cost solution for SEO reporting, suitable for medium-sized businesses that can't afford more expensive solutions of this type.
  • It's also very scalable in some respects, particularly the availability of unlimited keyword tracking, which is preferable to certain solutions that charge by the keyword.
  • There are also a number of other features in the product not directly related to the reporting of performance which some users will find useful.

Cons

Advanced Web Ranking

  • The ability of the program to produce dashboards in web page format. While it can do this, it saves them out as HTML files on your hard drive or cloud server, which makes it super hard to share with others.
  • The cloud version is a bit more expensive, which offers the same tools as the desktop, which I found a little troublesome and it didn't make sense to me.
  • Their customer service was a little lacking. I had a couple of general questions and I was on hold for about 15 minutes...which isn't good when you're in the middle of a busy workday.

Alternatives Considered

Advanced Web Ranking

BrightEdge is a lot more expensive, but we began using it when funds allowed us to, primarily for the online reporting and features not found in Advanced Web Ranking. But, as I mentioned earlier, we did not stop using Advanced Web Ranking when we introduced BrightEdge because it does have some plus points not found in BrightEdge.

Return on Investment

Advanced Web Ranking

  • It stayed within our client's allotted budget (which drives more business our way down the road!)
  • Updated information in real-time assures our clients that they get the most accurate information possible, as quickly as possible.
  • It's been only slightly detrimental to my workflow (which is one little drawback of the program) sometimes I have to enlist the help of a keyword generator (because i find the one with the program a bit lacking)

Link Detox

  • It helped me remove manual penalties which makes a huge impact on rankings
  • Keeping the websites safe for future penalty reviews and updates
  • Having the websites rank good and protect them from penalties is a big ROI
