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.

SEOquake is a good option if you want something quick on your browser to analyze some high-level information about a website.However, if you want more in-depth analysis, there are other tools that may be better suited for that type of work.

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 SEOquake extension is helpful and non-invasive to the browser. It hides away in the top left corner and doesn't expand unless you tell it to.
  • The domain comparison feature is nice to see a high-level view of how a website sizes up against competitors.
  • It gives a nice diagnosis of some key features that the website is doing well in, and where it could improve.

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 high-level parameters are nice to see, but for a new-to-the-tool person, they are confusing and don't provide a lot of explanation, unfortunately.
  • The keyword density section is somewhat helpful but gives the density in a percentage without rationale as to what an average percentage is or what the website should aim for.

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

SEOquake provides the basics and high overview. But SEMRush is a more robust tool that gives you the whole gamut of SEO/SEM insights. While SEMRush integrates with SEOquake, SEMRush is by far a more detailed tool providing a stronger SEO focus, stronger competitor analysis, stronger keyword research tools, and more.

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)

  • SEOquake hasn't made enough of an impression compared to some other tools we like to use. It's helpful in a sense, but lackluster where other tools shine.
