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.

Linkody

For the explicit need of managing backlinks, Linkody is a good tool for this use. If you need additional search and website related verification tools, then another tool would be better, such as SEMRush or SpyFu.

Pros

  • It only costs $49/month, which is great for clients that are working with limited budgets (they're cost-conscious!)
  • Its ease of use – I've worked with plenty of cloud-based rank tracking programs before, and AWR was by far one of the cleanest and easiest to navigate. I could use it on my iPad and the user-touch interface was pretty seamless.
  • The info is updated in real-time. We were able to show our clients their live data while in meetings. It made us look good, and it made our clients feel better about the service they were paying for.

  • The identification of new links is extremely helpful.
  • Comparison tool of backlinks and being able to look at competitors backlinks as well.

Cons

  • 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.

  • The tool is exclusively related to backlinks, so there are not any other features (which we are subscribed) to utilize on the platform.
  • There are periodic crawl errors, so we have occasions with reports filled with hundreds of backlink errors. Commonly these are corrected within a day, but we have to wait to act on the errors because there are so many it is difficult to identify what is a real error and which is a mistake of the Linkody tool.

Alternatives Considered

There's a ton of competition for AWR but in all honesty, if you're on a budget, I'd advise going with this one. It gets you pretty accurate results, updates their info in real time, and all for about $49/month base price. It's pretty good software for the money that you're paying

Linkody is more limited than SpyFu and SEMRush, as it is specifically related to backlinks management. On the other hand, if that is all you need and on you only have a handful of domains to manage, it is a relatively economical solution.

Return on Investment

  • 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)

  • Linkody helped tremendously with disavowing uncredible links, which has helped to clean up our domain's reputation.
  • Linkody is a good, centralized way for us to identify changes and new links for competitors websites.
