Advanced Web Ranking is a system we use for our clients that don't have a large budget to study analytics, particularly clients that need to monitor how their site is performing through user-based searches (or in other words, organic searches). The desktop version is a fairly old product, and they've worked out any bugs that may have existed...meaning the program runs very smoothly, even on our older machines.
  • 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 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.
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.

If you only need to report on keyword rankings for your site(s) and don't need a particularly 'fancy' presentation of the information AND you would enjoy unlimited keyword tracking, AWR should be on your list of products to look at, especially if your budget for SEO reporting is not that high.
