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.

Majestic SEO

Majestic is great if you want to build your backlink profile, especially if you know competitors who have strong profiles and can be mimicked. Majestic allows to export a lot of backlinks and has a lot of parameters for filtering this data.Another useful scenario is to track competitors over time and watch how their Trust and Citation flow are correlated to their rankings.

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.

  • Provides useful backlink profile. If you can see who is linking to a particular domain you can usually tell if the domain is worthwhile.
  • Ranks trust factor of domains. Very useful in determine if the property is trustworthy and therefore more valuable.
  • Give insight into competitors' linking strategies. It's always good to know what your competitors are up to.

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.

  • Their UI is dated and a bit hard to understand.

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

I would say Ahrefs does somehow a better job in terms of data quality, ease of use and intuitiveness. Majestic SEO surely follows Ahrefs on the second position as per my opinion. Majestic SEO has a huge potential for improvement when it comes to the way tool portrays information on the website as well as can work on the way data is displayed on the charts.

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)

  • T summarize: it delivers on the promise. It's a site management/link profile analysis tool and it does a great job with that.
  • The flexible pricing plans make it very easy to customize the tool based on the functionality etc.
  • We started with the free version and decided to upgrade the tool to get the additional functionalities and in-depth reports etc. SO far in terms of ROI it has been on a positive side.
