RankTracker Review: Pricing & Features

We’ve Reviewed RankTracker — Better Than the Alternatives?

Let’s face it—every craftsman needs tools. SEO is no different—we all rely on them.

How do you pick the right one with so many of them available?

To make it easier for you to make the right choice, we’ve reviewed over 35 of the best rank trackers, based on:

  • Price
  • Accuracy
  • Check frequency
  • Search engine support
  • Location support
  • Device support
  • And other advanced features.

Instead of making a bad call and only realizing it after you’ve moved your entire reporting infrastructure to the wrong tool, read this article, and you’ll be able to make an informed decision that will positively impact your organization. 

Who Are We to Judge the RankTracker?

There’s so much fluff out there, so you’d be right to question every source. But then, you did find us through organic search, right?

That’s because we know what we’re doing. But don’t take our word for it. Come and see how we took three projects in 2019 from virtually 0 to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors!

See how we took Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours watched on YouTube in 2019.

When it comes to SEO, every piece of advice we share is based on data and real results. Opinions and intuition are valuable, but there’s nothing like actionable data gathered from real projects.

The best part? These results come from 24+ months of hard work, nearly 100,000 page 1 keywords, and many successful projects—so now you don’t have to. Now, let’s take a look at the RankTracker’s features and how well it integrates into your existing workflow.

About RankTracker

RankTracker is an all-in-one platform that has different tools in it, allowing you to do the following, all in one place:

  1. Research keywords
  2. Analyze the competition
  3. Track your search engine ranking

While it has pretty much all the features you’ll need in your SEO efforts. It does a great job of making it easy to navigate through all of them.

Here’s a quick breakdown of RankTracker:

RankTracker Overview

RankTracker Homepage

As soon as you get to the home page, you’ll be able to:

  • Start a ten-day free trial.
  • Learn more

RankTracker doesn’t have a free plan, but you will have those ten days during the trial to try it out and see if it fits your SEO needs. Note that this free trial will come with a limited number of options.

“Learn more” takes you to an easy-to-understand guide that explains the most important features using screenshots.

Once you create your free account, you will need to do the initial setup:

  1. Connect the domain
  2. Add keywords
  3. Tracking settings (locations, search engines)
  4. List competitors

Once you’re done with the setup, it takes you to the dashboard, which is actually quite easy to navigate and get insights from. A lot of tools struggle with this, so RankTracker’s dashboard definitely earns a top score on this one.

During the free trial, you’ll be able to track ten keywords and one competitor only—which is enough to do some testing, but you’ll definitely need to switch to a paid plan to run some real campaigns.

RankTracker has three paid plans available, and they are defined by the number of features they provide:

  • RankTracker
  • All in one
  • Premium

Besides the features, the number of keywords you’re tracking will also affect the pricing. For example, any paid plan may track anywhere between 50 and 30,000 keywords. Obviously, you will have to pay for the keyword “credits.”

The plan you select will limit the number of features you’ll have available, while not affecting the number of keywords you’re tracking. Check the screenshot above for the full list of features that come with each plan.

We suggest you go with the “middle option”—All in one plan. It has all the features as the Premium option, except for the dedicated account manager.

SEO agencies with a high workload will easily get to the upper keyword count, and at that point, switching to a Premium plan will be a minor additional expense, as you can see on the screenshot below.

RankTracker Features

RankTracker is an all-in-one solution to keyword research, competition analysis, and tracking your research rankings. 

While the list of its features is extensive, its great user experience and easy-to-use layout make it possible for SEO professionals of “all sizes” to use it effectively.

The key features of RankTracker are:

  • Search engine support
  • Device support
  • Location support
  • PPC savings
  • RankTracker
  • Keyword research
  • Competitor analysis
  • Actionable SEO tasks
  • Web audit

Search Engine Support

You name it; they’ve got it. RankTracker’s search engine support is extensive—besides Google’s platforms, they cover Yahoo, Bing, Yandex, YouTube, and Baidu.

Regardless of the plan, you’ll have access to all these search engines. Especially important if you’re, say, targeting older people (a lot of them are on Bing), or the Russian market (Yandex is very popular there).

This alone easily makes them one of the best SERP trackers on our list.

Device Support

As you can see in the same screenshot above, you’ll always be able to pick desktop, mobile—or both—when setting up new tracking.

The fact that ever since 2017, the percentage of mobile users has been around 50%, makes it imperative for any SEO tool to have proper reporting when it comes to mobile vs. desktop visitors.

The Rank Tracker feature (more on that below), also allows you to instantly switch between desktop and mobile views, so you can focus on the data that matters to you and really fits your business goals.

Location Support

Where you’re ranking is sometimes as important as IF you’re ranking. When targeting a specific market or geographic location, just add these variables into the tracking setup, and you’ll be able to see how your site ranks in the area specified.

The SERP checker goes deep and shows you search results for a particular country, region, city, or even a neighborhood, so you can find the best keyword opportunities there.

PPC Savings

There’s always that ongoing battle between paid and organic marketing. This cool feature will definitely help you turn the tides for the organic side you’re fighting for. 

By tracking average CPC in the industry/location you’re competing in, RankTracker keeps track of how much you are saving… By ranking organically instead of pouring money into paid ads.

This is something that’s specific to RankTracker and will make your reporting way better. Plus, it will make it super easy to calculate ROI of your SEO efforts.

Rank Tracker

This is the platform’s main feature that makes it easy to track exactly how your SEO campaigns are performing. With helpful alerts and smooth visual overviews, the Rank Tracker tool oversees your site as it climbs up or down the search engine result ladder.

Rank Tracker makes it easy to focus on the data that really matters to you. It allows you to track your rankings for a specific location (country, region, city, even neighborhood), and even switch instantly between mobile and desktop views.

Keyword Research

RankTracker’s Keyword Finder feature allows you to look for new ranking opportunities. Think of it as a feature that was meant to replace some of the major tools that specialize in keyword research.

In reality, RankTracker really isn’t famous for it. The biggest names in that field are still tools like SEMRush and Ahrefs.

After trying out this RankTracker feature, we still decided to keep using Ahrefs as a tool that was intentionally developed for keyword research, and therefore, does a better job at it.

Competitor Analysis 

The number of competitors you will be able to keep track of is going to be defined by the plan you pick. Here’s the breakdown:

  • RankTracker — three competitors/domain
  • All in one — ten competitors/domain
  • Premium — 20 competitors / domain

The process is really simple here—when you set up each domain you’ll be tracking, you can add a number of competitor domains to keep track of. The number of competitor domains depends on the plan you pick and can be three, ten, or 20 (check the list above).

Actionable SEO Tasks

This particularly beginner-friendly feature walks you through the process step by step. Some of the areas the task checklist covers:

  • Setting up your website
  • Researching keywords
  • On-page SEO
  • Content strategy
  • Off-page SEO
  • Social media

Obviously, you shouldn’t expect this feature to replace an actual human SEO expert, but it will definitely help those less experienced with staying on the right track and tackling SEO in a systematic, by-the-book way.

Web Audit

Along with Actionable SEO Tasks, Web Audit feature really helps with staying on the right track and maintaining a healthy system. 

This audit tool will constantly check all of your on-site SEO factors, alerting you of any issues, and actually telling you how to fix them as well. 

You can run these audits any time you like, and each time you’ll get all the data you need in minutes. All that information will be stored safely in your account, so you’ll be able to check it historically and compare it with new results.

Here’s how the Web Audit tool does this for your site:

  1. Scans all your pages
  2. Saves XML reports
  3. Shows what’s urgent
  4. Gives actionable insights
  5. Compares previous scans
  6. Evaluates over 100 data points

How We Fixed Keyword Research Before Using RankTracker

No one questions how incredibly impactful keyword research is. It is so important, and it affects all of our SEO efforts. You cannot imagine a successful campaign without it, right?

And yet, it’s such a tedious, time-consuming process. But again, it has to be done right. 

If you do have the luxury of being in a bigger team, sure, you’ll usually gladly delegate this to some junior team members. But then, you will still need to teach them how to do it right and even then check their work just in case.

Now, if you’re working on your own, it’s going to be even worse—you’re just adding another task on your already full-grown list of responsibilities.

So, let’s first summarize the biggest issues surrounding keyword research (and then we’ll tell you exactly how we fixed them):

  • You need an SEO expert to do it effectively
  • It takes a lot of time to do it right, even for an expert
  • Case studies show clearly what approach works, yet everyone’s still basing their decisions on intuition and “gut feeling”
  • This makes it nearly impossible for senior SEOs to delegate research to junior team members or contractors 
  • Results are inconsistent between different team members
  • It limits your ability to scale your business

We know what you’re thinking—If only we had a machine, a tool, that could do this work for us. Or, at least that’s what we thought after having to do the keyword research for like 1000+ times. 

One day we’ve decided that it’s enough. And that is exactly how ClusterAi came to be.

Just imagine—you can clone yourself, and your clone, obviously, knows what you want. Even better – it knows what you need. You ask for unique content topics around main keywords and their variations, and in a minute’s time, you have them. Without even lifting a finger.

Here’s exactly what ClusterAi can do for you, regardless of your SEO experience:

  1. ClusterAi relies on data from Google, allowing you to perform perfect keyword research every single time
  2. It removes human error from the equation and automates weeks-worth of work
  3. It enables everyone to do high-quality keyword research, regardless of previous SEO experience
  4. ClusterAi creates unique content topics around main keywords and their variations, so you’ll know exactly what keyword variations you’ll use on each page, in minutes instead of weeks

How Does One Nail Keyword Research Every Single Time?

Let us give you an example to show you how easy it is to nail keyword research every single time with ClusterAi.

Say we were starting a project in the pet niche. 

  1. We use Ahrefs Keyword Explorer to search for “dog”
  2. Then, we make sure to use the “Having same terms” feature

This shows us over 10 million different queries that contain the word “dog.” 

This search term is too broad. We want to focus on a more specific topic, say “dog food.”

Including “food” in the search terms narrows down the list to 455,000 variations.

What we can do now is export the top 25,000 keyword variations, based on search volume.

Then, all we need to do is import that list into ClusterAi. 

  1. ClusterAi then scrapes the first ten results on Google for all keywords on the list
  2. It compares each keyword against every other keyword
  3. ClusterAi searches for keywords that have three or more URLs in common
  4. Then it clusters the 25,000 keyword variations into unique content topics 

The data is presented as a list, sorted by:

  • Main keyword
  • Total search volume across all variations in a group
  • The variations that can rank with the main keyword

You can click any cell to expand it and see the full list of variations.

That’s all there is to it! In minutes, we received a comprehensive list of over 1,000 unique content topics. 

That’s weeks-worth of keyword research that you can do in an instant. And since it’s all based on data pulled directly from Google, it’s perfect every time. 

The best part about ClusterAi is—anyone can do expert-level keyword research, even if they don’t know anything about SEO. 

How Did You Find This Article?

The first thing that comes to mind when talking about SEO is probably backlinks, along with other complicated technical BS.

Now, what if you could successfully rank, again and again, without those tactics?

That’s exactly what we’ve been able to achieve—almost 100,000 first page keywords across our projects. No backlinks. No complicated BS.

How?

With ClusterAi and our battle-tested processes.

Everything You Wanted To Know About Rankedy

  1. Rankedy Review & Alternatives — An Interesting Take on Rank Tracking and SEO

    Rankedy is a rank tracker and SEO tool that’s crammed with seemingly excellent features but is known to experience various technical difficulties. Despite its self-proclaimed title of “the Goto SEO software,” the tool is hardly the best rank tracker on the market, let alone the best SEO tool available. 

    We’ll go over the tool’s features in detail and highlight its strengths and weaknesses, so you can assess whether or not Rankedy will integrate well into your existing workflows and meet the SEO needs of your business. 

    Why You Should Listen to Us About Tiny Ranker

    Over the years, we’ve worked with dozens of different clients and spent a fair amount of time on keyword research, keyword tracking, technical SEO, and on-page SEO. We’ve tested a bunch of different things, and we feel confident to say that we understand how Google actually works.

    We won’t try to convince you — we’ll let the results speak for themselves. In the last year alone, we took three different projects from virtually no organic search visitors to over 100,000 monthly website visits! 

    Thanks to our proven processes and a deep understanding of Google, we continue to drive hundreds of thousands of visitors to our clients’ sites and our own, consistently and reliably.

    Doggypedia.org (Publisher)

    See how we took Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours watched on YouTube in 2019.

    The reason why we’re sharing these results with you is not that we want to brag. We simply want to show you that the SEO-related advice we’re sharing isn’t based on what we “think” is right, but rather on consistent, replicable results. 

    We also understand that organizations have different business goals, needs, and workflows. That’s why we won’t tell you which rank tracker is the best. Instead, we’ll provide you with an unbiased review of Rankedy, focusing on the tool’s features and functionality, so you can make an informed decision yourself. 

    We reviewed 35+ of the most popular rank trackers, so if you find that Rankedy doesn’t align with your business needs, you can always check out one of the Rankedy alternatives.

    About Rankedy

    Rankedy markets itself as an “all-in-one” SEO tool. Taking a quick look at the “Features” section on the tool’s homepage reveals that Rankedy is indeed much more than a simple rank tracker — it also offers advanced capabilities regarding on-page SEO, keyword research, backlink monitoring, and more. We’ll talk about the tool’s most important features in detail in the following section. 

    The first impression we got from the tool’s homepage isn’t good. Despite giving off the impression that it wasn’t written by someone whose first language is English, there are also some technical issues with the website. 

    Rankedy offers a seven-day free trial, allowing anyone who’s interested in testing out the tool risk-free to try it out before making a commitment to paying the monthly subscription fee — or so it appears. 

    Rankedy Free Trial

    Once you enter your website’s domain and click the “Start Free Trial” button, you’ll be redirected to a page with a simple form that only asks for your name and email address. And that’s provided that the free trial button works at the time. We’ve had to attempt it multiple times to get the tool to redirect us to the free trial signup page.

    One thing we like about Rankedy’s approach is that you can see your website featured on the right side of the screen, alongside the SEO-related activities the tool can help you perform.

    Free Trial Setup

    Although a small and seemingly insignificant detail, it gives off the impression that the Rankedy team invested significant time and effort into developing the software. 

    This impression changed the instant we clicked the button to create the account. The button displayed a circle signifying that the tool was loading? We’ve tested three dozen different rank trackers and hundreds of various non-SEO tools, but we’ve never run into a piece of software that has to load the free account.

    We initially thought that the tool was running a full scan of the site, which would justify the lengthy loading time, but the “Whoops, something went wrong” message reassured us. While this doesn’t tell you much about the tool itself, it’s concerning when you start running into issues even before you start using it. 

    Just imagine how much frustration Rankedy would cause if it constantly bugged out and took forever to load, and you happened to need the information right away — say, to forward a report to a client. 

    After nearly an hour and dozens of attempts to create an account and start the free trial, using different domains and a slew of email addresses, we were finally able to log in and check out the tool’s features first-hand. 

    Before we take a closer look at Rankedy’s key features, here’s a quick overview of the tool:

    Rankedy Overview
    Monthly cost From $29/month 
    Number of keywords From 100 to 1,000 
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 3,000 – 30,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0097
    Year funded 2018
    Number of employees 11 – 50
    Capterra reviews 4.3/5 stars
    Facebook followers 1,585

    One thing we need to address here is the tool’s pricing. Although $29/month may not seem like much, you have to take into account that you’re only getting 100 keyword searches for that amount. Other pricing plans aren’t much better, with only 500 keywords for $159/month.

    Granted, keyword tracking isn’t the only thing Rankedy offers, but still. The “Custom Plan” doesn’t have a price tag attached to it, but it is limited to 1,000 monthly keyword searches.

    Rankedy Pricing 

    To put things into perspective, apart from severely limiting the number of keywords you can track each month, Rankedy is, on average, three times more expensive than its competitors. 

    Rankedy Features

    We’ve gotten to the meat of things. Let’s go over Rankedy’s core features to see whether they can justify the tool’s steep price.

    As with most rank trackers, the main features you should look for are:

    1. Search engine support
    2. Location and device support
    3. Check Frequency
    4. Reporting

    Apart from this, Rankedy also offers:

    1. SEO analysis
    2. Backlink monitoring
    3. Keyword research
    4. Various miscellaneous features

    Search Engine Support

    Rankedy can track your rankings for Google, Bing, and Yahoo, which kind of clashes with its self-image of being an “all-in-one” SEO tool. What we mean by this is that, while it does support the biggest search engines, Rankedy fails to provide support for more niche search engines like Yandex, Baidu, DuckDuckGo, etc. It also doesn’t include YouTube searches. 

    If you were hoping for a truly comprehensive rank tracking tool, you won’t find it here. For businesses operating in, and agencies working with clients based in Russia and Asia, we recommend checking out some of the Rankedy alternatives. This also goes for businesses that heavily rely on YouTube traffic. 

    Location and Device Support

    When it comes to narrowing down the search results by location, you’ll have the option of selecting the country and the language, as well as ticking the “Yes” box next to the “Is local business?” option. 

    You won’t be able to filter the results by city or area, and we highly doubt that the tool will display different results whether you answer “Yes” or “No” to the weirdly phrased question. 

    Rankedy does let you track your rankings for desktop and mobile devices separately, but note that checking the rank for a particular keyword on both devices counts as two keyword searches towards your already low monthly keyword limit. 

    Check Frequency

    There’s absolutely no information regarding check frequency anywhere on the tool’s website, or within the software itself. While the team behind Rankedy might find this piece of information irrelevant, we believe that having an option to choose when to refresh the keywords can be invaluable. 

    While there are only a handful of rank trackers that allow you to see the rank changes once every few hours, we firmly believe that a good rank tracker should at least provide you with an option to group different keywords and select how often you want to check their rankings — daily, weekly, or monthly. 

    Although not a deal-breaker, the lack of customization regarding check frequency is something to consider, especially if you’re doing SEO for a number of different clients. 

    Reporting

    Rankedy has a decent reporting feature, allowing you to both create on-demand reports and export them as PDFs, or schedule the reports and have them delivered directly to your inbox. 

    By default, the reports display the average and best rank for each keyword, but they are highly customizable. You can set up filters and have the reports show the data that’s most relevant to you or your client. Rankedy also offers the option to choose from multiple report templates.

    The reports Rankedy generates are fully white-labeled, meaning you can add your company logo and brand colors to the reports, which is always a nifty feature to have if you’re doing SEO for clients, rather than for your own website. 

    Another thing worth mentioning is that Rankedy offers an upscale version of its standard rank tracker, called the Rank Journal. This feature allows you to:

    • Add tags to specific keywords
    • Get insights into why a page moved up or down in the SERPs
    • Get notified whenever a rank of any keyword changes
    • Somewhat automate the rank tracking process

    Keep in mind that Rank Journal entries are also limited. With the most affordable pricing plan, you’ll be able to add 1,500 entries per month. Every tag, notification, or any other piece of information regarding the keywords you’re tracking counts as one entry. 

    SEO Analysis 

    The tool’s SEO Analysis capabilities can be broken down into three categories:

    1. Domain analysis
    2. Page analysis
    3. Tech footprints monitoring

    The domain analysis is practically a site audit, allowing you to identify the SEO your site is facing and providing you with applicable advice on how to solve them. 

    This feature will analyze your website across a variety of different SEO parameters, such as:

    • Website speed
    • Site map
    • Web archive age
    • SSL certificate
    • Mobile optimization
    • Other important factors

    The tool will grade your site depending on its performance against these parameters, giving you a quick overview of your site’s overall health and highlighting the issues that are preventing you from ranking high on Google.

    The page analysis does pretty much the same, except for a specific page on your website. With the accent on on-page SEO, it also includes variables such as keyword density, H1 & H2 tags, meta title and description, missing or broken links, etc. 

    The “Tech footprints” feature provides a bit more insight regarding on-page technical SEO that you can leverage to further improve your website’s SEO performance. 

    Backlink Monitoring

    Rankedy’s backlink monitoring provides a comprehensive overview of your backlink profile. Here, you’ll be able to see all of the websites linking to your content, along with the strength of each link, missing or broken links, and the domain rating of every linking domain.

    You can sort the data easily through various filters and see new and lost links presented via the tool’s color-coded chart. For each domain linking to your website, the tool will show you the number of backlinks, as well as the exact pages of your site they’re linking to. 

    You can use this information to reach out to sites that are already linking to you and establish even more backlinks and introduce them to other amazing content that they could be linking to. 

    Keyword Research

    Rankedy’s keyword research feature is bare-bones. It provides you with a list of keywords related to the ones you’re already tracking and shows you their monthly search volume, but offers no information beyond that. 

    Apart from keyword suggestions, Rankedy also provides a “Keyword Personality” feature that shows you which keywords your competitors are ranking for on the first page of Google. This can help you get an idea of what keywords you could be ranking for with your content and is a good way to gain a better understanding of what your target audience is searching for.

    The trouble, however, is that the tool doesn’t feature links to competitors’ pages that rank for the listed keywords. Instead, you would have to manually google them and comb through the pages one-by-one. In our opinion, removing automation from the equation defeats the purpose of having a software tool in the first place.

    Miscellaneous Features

    Apart from the standard package, Rankedy also incorporates a slew of miscellaneous features, such as:

    • Password manager
    • Dashboard
    • Activity stream
    • Goals configuration

    You’re probably wondering: “How in the world is dashboard an extra feature?!” 

    That’s exactly the issue with Rankedy — they’re offering a bunch of basic features and using strong website copy to promote them as something extraordinary. While we don’t blame them for this marketing approach, we have to say that the tool doesn’t live up to the hype they create on their website. 

    A Word of Caution

    The tool’s homepage, Facebook page, and unresponsiveness don’t really make Rankedy the most appealing option when it comes to tracking the performance of your keywords and SEO campaigns. 

    There’s also the issue with their “fantastic, 24/7 live support.” In reality, this is nothing but a form you need to fill out to send them an email — the tool doesn’t have live chat support, although it leads you to believe that is the case. After filling out the form to “connect with one of their agents,” you’ll simply see a message telling you that your email was successfully sent, with a button allowing you to resend it. 

    You read that right. We were just as confused as you are right now, but that’s what the “live support” window says:

    Rankedy Support

    Rankedy $29 4.3 100 – 1,000

    How to Automate Keyword Research Before Using Rankedy or Any Other Rank Tracker

    Let’s face it — keyword research is broken.

    • Doing effective keyword research takes a ton of skills and SEO experience
    • It’s a slow, arduous, manual process that nobody enjoys doing
    • Everyone relies on intuition to do keyword research — even the top 1% of marketers — but nobody is using data to make keyword decisions
    • It’s practically impossible to delegate high-level keyword research to junior SEOs
    • You end up with inconsistent deliverables 

    Most people make peace with all of the above because they simply believe that there is no other way to do keyword research. 

    But what if we told you that there is a way to turn keyword research from an unpredictable art into an exact science? What if, on top of that, anyone could do it and you could ensure that it’s perfect every time? 

    You’d probably call us crazy. Yet, with the right tool, you can pull data directly from Google and automate the entire process, getting weeks’ worth of work done in minutes, while ensuring that the keyword research is 100% accurate. 

    With ClusterAi, you can nail keyword research and SEO every single time:

    1. ClusterAi scrapes data directly from Google — this completely removes uncertainty and the possibility of human error from the equation
    2. It automates the keyword research process in its entirety, saving you both valuable time and money
    3. The tool does all the hard work, meaning that anyone can do expert-level keyword research, even if they have absolutely no previous SEO experience
    4. The tool clusters keywords together to create unique content topics, so you’ll always know exactly what keywords to rank for with each page

    Keyword Research That Brings Reliable, Consistent Results

    We know that “perfect keyword research without any SEO experience” is difficult to believe. That’s why we’ll give you a real-world example of ClusterAi in practice, so you can see first-hand just how easy it is to do expert-level keyword research with this incredible tool.

    Say we have a client who wants to start a website in the pet niche. The main topic they want to cover is dog food. To get started, we would:

    1. Open up Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and search for the term “dog”
    2. Select the “Having same terms” feature and type in “food”

    Ahrefs will show us a list of over 455,000 queries that meet our criteria.

    Now, all we need to do is export the top 25,000 keywords, based on their monthly search volume, and import them into ClusterAi. This literally takes two clicks. 

    1. ClusterAi scrapes the top ten results on the first page of Google
    2. It compares all keywords on the list against each other
    3. The tool searches for keywords that have three or more URLs in common
    4. It clusters the ones that meet the criteria into keyword groups, based on the main keyword and all of its variations, creating unique content topics around them

    In just minutes, we get a list of over 1,000 unique content topics from the 25,000 keywords. The data in the list is shown by:

    • Main keywords 
    • Total search volume 
    • Keyword variations 

    Click any cell to expand it and see the full list of variations.

    That’s weeks’ worth of keyword research that anyone can do in less than five minutes. Plus, it’s all based on data directly from Google, so it’s perfect every time.  

    Did You Find This Rankedy Review on the First Page of Google?

    We rank on the first page of Google for over 100,000 different keywords across various projects. But that’s not the crazy part — we consistently manage to outrank competitors with higher domain rankings, bigger marketing budgets, and more backlinks, without even doing any technical SEO.

    This goes to show you just how big of an impact ClusterAi can have on your business!

Everything You Need to Know About Rank Console Rank Tracker

Rank Console Honest Review — The Right Tool for SEO Experts?

In business, if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. Luckily, in SEO, tracking the effects of our work has evolved, and we now have hundreds of tools to measure our success.

On the other hand, having too much choice usually leaves us with the paradox of choice.

To make this decision easier for you, we’ve created a list of over 35 of the best rank trackers. We’ve based the ranking on:

  • Accuracy
  • Check frequency
  • Search engine support
  • Location support
  • Device support
  • Price
  • And other advanced features.

Our goal was to allow you to make the right decision for your business once you’ve read this article and checked our top 3 ranking tools.

Why We Can Back Our Claims About Rank Console

It is super easy to access and distribute information nowadays. However, rather than making our lives easier, this fact often leads us to all sorts of dilemmas on who we should listen to.

With all kinds of self-proclaimed experts around and a bunch of affiliates telling you the tool they’re supposedly reviewing is the best one, it’s so easy to make the wrong choice.

We don’t expect you to take our word for it. We back our claims with results.

With the right team and by using the right tools, we’ve been able to take three projects in the last year from virtually 0 to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors!

In SEO, there’s no place for small talk and what someone “thinks” might work. The rules for winning the SEO game are actually quite simple, but we’re complicating it too much by relying on intuition and the “gut feeling.” Not to mention the 200 ranking factors that some leading experts are talking about.

We don’t want to do that. We don’t like telling you what we “think may work” based on how inspired we’re feeling today. 

We want to give you data that comes from our experience, from hundreds of tests we’ve done, the mistakes we’ve made, and the amazing results we got.

Let’s now take a look and see what we’ve learned from reviewing Rank Console and find out if it is the right tool for tracking your rankings.

About Rank Console

Rank Console is a fairly simple tool that specializes in monitoring your Google rankings and backlinks.

What makes Rank Console different than the most competitors out there is the fact that it just provides these two metrics. You can only track your Google rankings and the links referring to your website. 

This makes the Rank Console a very straightforward tool, with a clear interface that you can notice right away.

Rank Console Homepage

On most home pages, you’ll have two options, usually some kind of a demo and then the free trial in most cases. Here, the Rank Tracker simplifies that as well.

It offers you one option only and makes it really easy for you to make that decision.

You can register right away with your email address only and use it forever, completely free (“no credit card ever needed”).

Rank Console really does a great job of explaining what it does and convincing you that you should give it a try. With literally no risk involved, we’re sure their conversion rates are great.

You can also try the Google rank tracking feature without creating an account. Its interface really makes it super easy for anyone to use it.

Once you try this out, you can move on to creating the “forever free” account.

Again, you’ll be done in no time, since the only thing you need is your email address, along with adding your name and creating the password.

Now that you have created your account, it is time for the initial setup. 

Click on “Create Domain” in order to add your first domain, and it will take you to the next page.

Now that you are done with adding your domain, you can easily track the ranking and the backlinks leading to it.

Rank Console again makes the whole process incredibly simple, with only three steps you need to take:

  • Create a domain
  • Create a keyword
  • Create a link

While the Rank Console’s features are limited, there are no limits to the actual searches within those features.

You can add an unlimited number of domains, keywords, and links you want to track.

The company is fairly new, so we believe it is safe to assume that they will be adding additional features or even whole products in the future. This will probably be a paid feature/product since they do not have an obvious way of monetizing the Rank Console at this moment.

Here’s a quick overview of Rank Console:

Rank Console Overview
Monthly cost Free Forever
Number of keywords Unlimited
Search frequency  30
Actual searches per month Unlimited
Cost per keywords/monthly Free
Year funded /
g2 reviews /
Number of employees 0–1
Facebook followers /
Twitter followers /

Let’s now take a look at Rank Console’s features and see how useful it may be for your SEO efforts.

Rank Console Features

Rank Console has a limited number of features that allow you to only partially track your SEO results.

While it may be easy-to-use and is definitely created to fit the needs of a beginner, we wouldn’t recommend it to anyone that is looking for an all-in-one-solution.

On the other hand, you are getting a lot for free with Rank Console. You can track an unlimited number of domains, keywords, and links. This makes it a great addition to other, more advanced tools you may be using.

The key features of Rank Console are:

  1. SERP analysis
  2. Backlink tracker
  3. Locality
  4. Language
  5. Search Engine support

SERP Analysis

Rank Console analysis of the Search Results Page isn’t as deep as we’d want it to be.

The screenshot below shows all the data you’ll be getting for your ranking overviews. You will be able to see your position for the keywords you’re ranking for, the search volume, and that is pretty much all.

The other thing we’ve noticed is that Rank Console takes a lot of time to gather data. We’ve been looking at this message for quite some time now.

Here’s where Rank Console falls short -while the features that you can use are unlimited, such as the number of keywords, links, and domains you can track the useful data you will be getting at the end is not so unlimited. In fact, it is quite the opposite, and you’ll definitely find it pretty hard to pull out some actionable insights from it.

After waiting for Rank Console to fetch data for around 20 minutes, we got some results:

It only gives you the basics, so you will only be able to see your position when it comes to ranking to specific keywords.

This makes it obvious that it is a tool that’s designed to cover the elementary features only. In the best-case scenario, you may use it as a complementary resource along with others you’ll need to use for proper, actionable insights.

With this in mind, Rank Console doesn’t take a high place on our list of 35 ranking tools.

Locality

The locality feature of the Rank Console does get a better review from us. Still, its simplicity of design gets in the way again.

Rank Console allows you to select the location where you’ll be tracking your domain ranking.

To do this, go to Domains, and then initiate the domain creation.

Once you’re there, you’ll get the option to select the language, country, and Google TLD.

When it comes to the location, having only one option really does limit your tracking capabilities. If you’re looking to specify the state, city, or neighborhood rankings, you’ll need to look for some of the more advanced rank tracking tools.

You will be able to select most of the countries worldwide, but that is often not enough. Some industries may find this irrelevant, but some of them really rely on precise tracking.

Language

Rank Console gives you the option to choose between 28 different languages you wish to track your rankings for. 

While this will be enough for most of your SEO campaigns, it doesn’t even come near some of the ranking tools we’ve reviewed, like SERPWoo that has 71 different languages to choose from.

Search Engine Support

Rank Console makes it clear right from their homepage that they are only monitoring Google search engine. They also confirm that in their FAQ section:

As we’ve mentioned above, this is one of the newer tools on the market that will most probably be expanding its reach by covering more than just the basics.


Search Engine Support is definitely one of the top priority features of any rank tracking tool. Rank Console really limits its application by monitoring Google search engine rankings only.

You will definitely need to check some alternative solutions if you’re looking for insights from different search engines like Bing or Yandex.

Rank Console Main Takeaways

This ranking tool’s limitations leave us with many questions unanswered.

It definitely leads us to the conclusion that, if we want all of our SEO demands satisfied, we’ll have to find an alternative solution.

One of the key elements Rank Console is missing is the keyword finder. This leaves us no option but to find another way, with another tool that can do this job.

In its defense, Rank Console is a new product, and its beginner-friendly, easy to navigate interface will definitely set it up for success once they finalize it by adding more features.

Until then, let us show you how we do the keyword research and why it gives us such great results every single time.

Our Simple Keyword Research Process

Keyword research takes around 20-30% of an SEO expert’s time. This seems to be a common response by most of the SEOs we’ve asked. 

Doing proper keyword research is the foundation of every SEO campaign, and it has the most impact on its success.

Unfortunately, it does come with all kinds of drawbacks that turn out to be quite expensive for us:

  • It takes time and skill to master it and perform effective keyword research
  • It’s a tedious, manual process that takes a lot of time
  • Your intuition doesn’t really help
  • Five people will have five different opinions but no one has the right answer every time
  • Experienced SEO specialists would gladly delegate it, but this produces bad keyword research most of the time
  • Deliverables are inconsistent between different team members
  • It costs a lot of money and even more time while stopping you from focusing on more important aspects of your job

These are all the issues that we’ve faced too. It was such a big issue for us that we’ve finally decided that we should do something about it.

ClusterAi was the solution we were looking for. It allowed us to scale our agency yet keep our performance on the highest level with every single project.

This, in turn, allowed us to take three projects in the last year only from no visitors to 100,000 monthly organic search visitors.

We owe all of our success to our effective team and ClusterAi.

Let’s take a look now and see what exactly this tool does and how you can implement it and get the same results we got with it.

ClusterAi is a keyword research tool that performs like an SEO senior while you’ll be paying for it less than you’re paying the junior.

It allows you to consistently perform high-level keyword research that will make your ranking efforts successful every single time. This is made possible by taking the guesswork out of the equation.

Here’s how ClusterAi actually accomplishes this:

  1. ClusterAi gathers data directly from Google, giving you the perfect keyword research every time
  2. It removes human error from the equation and automates weeks-worth of work
  3. It enables everyone to do high-quality keyword research, regardless of previous SEO experience
  4. ClusterAi creates unique content topics around main keywords and their variations, so you’ll know exactly what keyword variations you’ll use on each page, in minutes instead of weeks

Is It Possible to Get the Perfect Keyword Research Every Single Time?

Here’s exactly how we nail the keyword research with each campaign.

In this case, we were starting a project in the pet industry:

  1. We use Ahrefs Keyword Explorer to search for “dog”
  2. Then, we make sure to use the “Having same terms” feature

This gives us more than ten million different queries that include the word “dog.” 

This search term is too wide. Now we want to narrow it down and focus on topics like “dog food.”

Adding “food” to the search terms narrowed down the list to around 455,000 queries.

Now we need to export the top 25,000 keyword variations, based on search volume.

Then, the only thing we need to do is import this list into ClusterAi. 

  1. ClusterAi then scrapes the first ten results on Google for all keywords on the list
  2. It compares each keyword against every other keyword
  3. ClusterAi searches for keywords that have three or more URLs in common
  4. Then it clusters the 25,000 keyword variations into unique content topics 

What we get is data presented as a list, sorted by:

  • Main keyword
  • Total search volume across all variations in a group
  • The variations that can rank with the main keyword

Here, by clicking on any cell, you’ll be able to expand it and see the list of all variations that you can rank for.

In a few short minutes, we’ve received a list of more than 1,000 unique content topics. 

That’s weeks-worth of keyword research that you can do in an instant. And since it’s all based on data pulled directly from Google, it’s perfect every time. 

The best part about ClusterAi is — anyone can do expert-level keyword research, even if they don’t know anything about SEO.

Single Best Thing About ClusterAi?

We talk a lot about 100,000 first page keywords across our projects. Besides being proud of the success we’ve had for our clients, there’s something else.

The thing is, the internet is flooded with all this information, and everyone’s in the game now. You can simply claim to be an expert, and some people will actually fall for it.

In that kind of an ecosystem, how do you stand out? How do you show you’re really the best and that you can consistently deliver the best results?

Our answer to that question is—show, don’t tell.

The only right way to back your claims is to show where your claims got you. If it doesn’t work for you and you don’t have a juicy case study to prove it, why would it work for anyone else? Why should anyone trust you?

That’s why we want you just to look at the results we’ve been consistently getting for our clients and decide for yourself.

White Spark Review: Let’s Put It To Test

  1. WhiteSpark Review & Alternatives — A Rank Tracker That Focuses on Local Search

    WhiteSpark is a rank tracker that takes on a rather interesting approach. Instead of trying to offer a robust, all-in-one rank tracking tool that does a little bit of everything, WhiteSpark hones in one specific aspect of rank tracking and aims to cater to a narrow target audience.

    In a market crowded with dozens of rank trackers, the approach WhiteSpark took makes perfect sense. Instead of trying to compete with every rank tracker out there, the company created a tool specifically for local businesses that seek advanced local search capabilities such as citations and reviews.

    In this review, we’ll take a detailed look at WhiteSpark’s features to show you exactly what this tool can offer to your business and help you determine how well it integrates with your existing workflows. 

    Why You Should Listen to Us About WhiteSpark

    We know SEO, and we understand how Google really works. And we’re not just saying that — we got the results to prove it.

    In the last year alone, we took three different projects from next to no organic traffic to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors!

    Doggypedia.org (Publisher)

    See how we took Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours watched on YouTube in 2019.

    The main reason why we’re sharing these results is that we want to show you that the recommendations we give aren’t based on what we believe works. When it comes to keyword research, SEO, and keyword tracking, we focus on raw data that provides reliable, consistent results. 

    On top of that, we won’t tell you whether a rank tracker is inherently good or bad — we’ll give you an unbiased review and let you draw your own conclusions. 

    We reviewed 35+ of the most popular rank trackers, so if you WhiteSpark isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, you can always check out one of its alternatives

    About WhiteSpark

    WhiteSpark isn’t your typical rank tracker. Instead, this tool puts the emphasis on local search and offers advanced capabilities that help businesses that target a specific geographic area get the most out of their SEO efforts.

    The tool only does one thing, but it does it well. Through precise local rankings and a variety of features, WhiteSpark gives you valuable insights to help you both understand and improve your local search visibility. 

    There are two ways to check out the tool before making a commitment and paying the monthly subscription. From WhiteSpark’s homepage, you can either start a free trial or click a preview to get a quick idea of what type of information WhiteSpark provides and how the tool displays it.

    WhiteSpark Preview

    At a glance, you can see that the tool provides a pie chart of the ranking distribution for the keywords the business is ranking for (Action Muffler, in the example they provide), as well as the visibility score and keyword progress. You can also select the timeframe you’d like to see the rank changes for, as well as set up various filters and get more insights for each individual query.

    Apart from the rankings, the preview shows competitor and keyword comparison, both of which can be incredibly useful for tracking the progress of your SEO campaign and improving your rankings.

    When it comes to the free trial, we have to share a word of caution. While the tool does offer a fourteen-day free trial, it also requires you to share your billing information to create a free account. 

    In order to create an account, you have to select one of the payment plans. After the free period, you will be automatically billed for the corresponding monthly subscription fee. They do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, so it isn’t too big of an issue if you forget to cancel your subscription before the free trial ends.

    Another drawback of WhiteSpark is the fact that there is no option to access all of the different “tools.” These are all individual features, mind you, but they are artificially broken down into separate tools, making you pay a monthly subscription for each! 

    The tools in WhiteSpark’s arsenal include:

    • Local Citation Finder
    • Local Rank Tracker
    • Reputation Builder
    • Review Checker
    • Review Handout Generator
    • Google Review Link Generator

    The first three are paid tools, while WhiteSpark markets the others as “free tools.” In reality, these should all be features of the same tool, accessible to a user once they pay the monthly subscription. 

    The cheapest options for the Citation Finder, Local Rank Tracker, and Reputation Builder add up to $86/month. If you opt for the Reputation Builder, you’ll essentially be paying $55 a month for a single feature that allows you to see the customer feedback on your business and lets you send them review requests. 

    And that’s the most affordable option for WhiteSpark’s Reputation Builder, plus it’s $55/month per location, and you’re limited to 3,000 email requests and 300 SMS text messages per month. 

    We’ll talk about the Reputation Builder and other “tools” WhiteSpark offers in detail in the following section, but first, here’s a quick overview of the tool.

    WhiteSpark Overview

    Monthly cost From $86/month ($14 for the Local Citation Finder; $17 for the Local Rank Tracker; $55 for the Reputation Builder)
    Number of keywords From 100 to 2,500
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 3,000 – 30,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0040
    Year funded 2005
    Number of employees 11 – 50
    Capterra reviews 3.8/5 stars
    g2 reviews 4.6/5 stars
    Facebook followers 1,725
    Twitter followers 4,094

    WhiteSpark Tools & Features

    Given WhiteSpark’s interesting take on rank tracking, we have to slightly deviate from the standard rank tracker review structure we typically stick to. 

    We’ll be reviewing the different “tools” the company offers and talking about the features/capabilities each of them offers. 

    We’ve already listed the six different tools users have at their disposal in the section above, so let’s jump right in.

    Local Citation Finder

    The Local Citation Finder, as one would assume, allows you to find all online mentions of your brand, address, or phone number. The tool lists all of your citations, alongside the links to the domain that is citing you, their domain authority, and the date of each citation.

    Whitespark also allows you to discover new citation opportunities. It does so by providing you with a list of citations for your highest-ranking competitors. With a single click, you can reach out to domains that are citing content within your niche and submit your website to gain new citations.

    The results are sorted by “submitability” — a variable that’s WhiteSpark’s way of showing you which domains are the most likely to accept your submission and generate new citations for your business. 

    The tool also includes competitor citation analysis, as well as reporting and tracking features, so you can always stay on top of your citations and take actionable steps towards improving your business’ online visibility. 

    Local Rank Tracker

    We’ve gotten to the meat of things, and the primary reason why anyone would choose WhiteSpark over any other rank tracker — its location tracking tool.

    The main features of WhiteSpark’s Local Rank Tracker are:

    1. Geo-location tracking
    2. Competitor monitoring
    3. Keyword segmentation
    4. YouTube and social rankings
    5. Screenshot capturing
    6. White-labeling

    Geo-Location Tracking

    The Local Citation tracker supports Google and Bing, allowing you to search the results for Local Pack, Local Finder, Maps, and organic rankings. 

    One thing to note is that the tool will show results for the first five pages of Google and Bing only. If the tool doesn’t show a particular keyword you’re tracking, you’ll have no way of knowing if your business ranks for it under 50, or if it doesn’t rank for that particular keyword at all. 

    The localization is where WhiteSpark truly shines. The Local Rank Tracker enables you to filter your search and narrow it down to a specific country, city, zip or postal code, or even specific geo-coordinates. 

    Another thing worth mentioning is that the tool enables you to track from multiple locations to see how you rank in different areas of a particular city, for example. While the tool supports unlimited locations, each of them will count as a separately tracked keyword towards your monthly maximum. The cheapest option allows you to track up to 100 keywords, so you’ll quickly reach the limit if you’re tracking for multiple locations. 

    Competitor Tracking

    This feature allows you to add your top competitors and see how they rank for the keywords you’re tracking. 

    You can also run a quick comparison report to see how your business stacks against theirs, as you’ll be able to see both your and your competitors’ rankings for every keyword on the list. 

    Keyword Segmentation

    This feature goes a bit beyond simply creating keyword groups and generating separate reports for specific groups for convenience. 

    It also enables you to see how your rankings differ across each pack type: 

    • Organic
    • Pack
    • Local
    • Maps

    This will show you how each keyword is performing in different areas, so you can identify optimization opportunities and take action to improve your overall rankings.

    YouTube and Social Rankings

    The ability to track how you’re ranking in YouTube search is invaluable for local businesses that heavily rely on promoting their brand and products on the platform and driving traffic from YouTube to their website.

    WhiteSpark’s Local Rank Tracker supports these capabilities and shows you how your YouTube videos are ranking in Google and Bing. 

    Apart from that, it also allows you to see how your brand’s social media profiles are ranking in these search engines. It doesn’t provide any insight apart from the rank itself, such as impressions and engagement, which practically means that this feature simply performs the Google/Bing search for you. 

    Screenshot Capturing

    Another feature of the Local Rank Tracker is screenshot capturing. It’s a simple built-in screen capture tool that allows you to screenshot graphs, charts, and lists, and save them for future reference. 

    White-Labeling

    The Local Rank Tracker allows you to generate fully customizable reports. You can either save them as PDFs or generate a unique URL that you can quickly share with anyone. 

    While this feature can be useful for agencies working with a lot of clients that want to add their brand’s name, logo, and colors to the reports, we don’t see how it’s relevant for small businesses that are predominantly interested in local rankings. 

    Unless you’re an agency primarily working with local businesses, you’ll likely just ignore the white-labeling option. 

    Reputation Builder

    This is where things get tricky with WhiteSpark. While the Reputation Builder is a fantastic tool that enables you to manage all your customer feedback and online reviews in one place, it is, in our opinion, unreasonably priced. 

    We don’t mean to diminish the effort of the developers behind this tool, but for functionality as simple as connecting different platforms — like Google, Facebook, Urban Spot — and allowing you to respond to customers and see their reviews, the $55 monthly subscription fee is a bit steep. 

    If you have stores in different parts of town or in several cities, the situation gets progressively worse. The $55/month is per location, meaning you will only be able to see the feedback and reviews for a single store or branch of your business. 

    While other features gave off a subtle vibe of being costly, the Reputation Builder is clearly overpriced. Overall, while WhiteSpark offers a decent collection of tools, we don’t believe that the astronomical price is justified.

    If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, check out how WhiteSpark stacks against the competition. 

    Review Checker, Review Handout Generator, and Google Review Link Generator

    All three of these tools should be features within the Reputation Builder, as far as we’re concerned. 

    The Review Checker simply lets you see all of the online reviews of your business across different platforms:

    • Google
    • Facebook
    • Yelp
    • Tripadvisor
    • Yellow Pages

    This “tool” is free, but there’s still the fact that it isn’t integrated as a feature into an already existing tool that’s supposed to handle online reviews. This just makes it so that you have to open a different tab and sift through the same information in two different places.

    The same goes for the Handout and Google Review Link Generators. All they do is create a simple review form and provide you with a link that you can share with your customers to generate reviews. 

    The fact that WhiteSpark is presenting these as “outstanding tools” that are free to boot, rather than simple features of a reputation management tool is a bit odd.

    It seems that the company wants prospects to believe that they’re receiving something of incredible value for free, while in reality, any reputation management software should have these capabilities as built-in features.

    How to Automate Keyword Research Before Using WhiteSpark

    Regardless of whether you choose WhiteSpark or one of its alternatives, it’s essential to do proper keyword research so you would know exactly what keywords to track.

    The problem is, the way most people do keyword research nowadays is broken.

    • Doing high-quality keyword research is a tedious, manual task that takes a ton of time and a considerable amount of SEO experience
    • It’s typically based on intuition and what “feels” right — nobody is using raw data to make keyword decisions
    • Human errors are always a possibility, making keyword research a lengthy trial-and-error process that costs companies a ton of money
    • It’s next-to-impossible to delegate high-level keyword research to junior SEOs with limited experience

    Thankfully, there’s a better way to do keyword research. With ClusterAi, you can turn keyword research from an unpredictable art into an exact science. 

    ClusterAi gives you the option to take on a data-driven approach and base your keyword decisions on accurate data from Google, rather than on your gut feelings.

    Here’s how ClusterAi can help ensure that your keyword research is perfect every time:

    1. ClusterAi pulls data from Google — this eliminates the possibility of human error and allows you to make informed decisions based on relevant, accurate, up-to-date data
    2. The entire process is completely automated, saving your weeks-worth of work
    3. Since the tool does all the heavy lifting, anyone can use it to perform expert-level keyword research in minutes
    4. The tool groups together related keywords to create unique content topics, showing you exactly what keywords you can rank for with each page

    Keyword Research Has Never Been Easier

    Let us give you an example to show you just how easy it is to do high-quality keyword research with ClusterAi.

    Say we wanted to start an affiliate website in the pet niche, or we already have one but want to create more content to attract a larger number of organic visitors. 

    One of the main topics we want to create content around is dog food. First, we need to pull a list of keywords related to our topic.

    We can do this by:

    1. Firing up the Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and typing in the term “dog”
    2. Navigating to the “Having same terms” feature and typing in “food”

    The tool will give us a list of over 455,000 search queries that meet our criteria.

    Now, we can export the top 25,000 keywords with the highest monthly search volume and import that list into ClusterAi. The tool will take care of the rest.

    1. ClusterAi scrapes the top ten results on the first page of Google
    2. It compares each of the 25,000 keywords against every other keyword on the list
    3. ClusterAi looks for keywords that share three or more URLs
    4. It clusters them into groups based on the main keyword and related keywords and creates unique content topics

    We can just lay back and let ClusterAi work its magic. In minutes, the tool will provide us with a list of over 1,000 unique content topics. The data is shown by:

    • Main keywords 
    • Total search volume 
    • Keyword variations 

    You can click any cell to expand it and see the full list of variations.

    This is as data-driven as it gets! The entire process is based on data from Google, and it’s fully automated, meaning you can perform perfect keyword research every single time, even if you have no SEO background. 

    Did You Find This WhiteSpark Review on the First Page of Google?

    This is a testament to the power of ClusterAi. Our agency relies on this powerful tool daily, and we couldn’t imagine doing keyword research without it. Combined with our proven processes, ClusterAi enables us to consistently rank on the first page of Google — outranking competitors with higher domain authority, bigger budgets, and more backlinks.

    Across our different projects, we’ve managed to rank on the first page of Google for over 100,000 keywords, in a variety of different niches. 

    With that in mind, imagine how big of an impact ClusterAi would have on your business!

    Tiny Ranker is a great keyword rank tracker and on-page SEO tool for people who are fairly new to the complex and often daunting world of search engine optimization. The tool is minimalistic and offers very little outside of simple rank tracking, but what it does — it does well.

    We’ve also reviewed over 35+ of the most popular rank trackers on speed, accuracy, price, and other important features. If you’re looking for something a bit more advanced, click here to see how Tiny Ranker compares to the competition

    Unlike most experts and self-proclaimed SEO gurus, we’re not giving you advice based on what we think works. We understand SEO, and we know what you should look for in a rank tracker. In this Tiny Ranker review, we’ll go over the tool’s features and capabilities, so you can make an informed decision and see how well this SEO tool fits your existing workflows. 

    About Tiny Ranker

    Tiny Ranker is a rank tracking and on-page SEO tool that focuses on simplicity. It is not an all-in-one SEO tool geared towards experienced SEO professionals, but rather an easy-to-use rank tracker that bloggers, affiliates, marketers — anyone, really — can use

    Tiny Ranker allows you to discern how well different pages of your site are ranking on Google and how many visitors each piece of your content attracts, quickly and with ease.

    Apart from Google, Tiny Ranker does not support any other popular search engine, which is a huge drawback. That said, the tool can help facilitate other crucial SEO activities, such as keyword analysis and competitor tracking. 

    You can get started with Tiny Ranker for free, and you’ll have a full month to test out the tool’s features in practice before deciding whether or not to commit to a monthly subscription.

    Tiny Ranker Free Trial

    From the tool’s homepage, click the “Start 30 Days Trial” button, enter your name, email address, and company name or website, and you’ll be able to start using Tiny Ranker immediately. 

    Once you verify your email address and activate the account, you’ll be redirected to the tool’s dashboard. What we like about Tiny Ranker’s approach to the free trial is that they tell you exactly what limitations are in place, unlike most other rank trackers.

    While you will be able to try out all of the tool’s features during the 1-month free period, you will be able to track up to 50 keywords. While not a whole lot, the 50 keyword cap is more than sufficient to get a feel for the tool.

    The first impression, once you log into your Tiny Ranker account, is that the tool is a bit bare bones. You’ll only see two options on your screen — one to add your site’s URL, and the other to select the language you want to check the rankings for.

    As you can imagine, the tool supports a lot more customization when creating your campaigns. When you do add your website, other options will become available. The tool will guide you through the setup process one step at a time, which is great for anyone who’s just dipping their toes in SEO waters for the first time. Given that the tool wants to appeal to people with limited SEO experience, we believe that the simple, straightforward approach Tiny Ranker opted for is a great choice. 

    Another awesome thing about Tiny Ranker is that the company behind it is offering “personal intros” to help you learn how to use the tool effectively.

    Tiny Ranker Personal Intro

    You’ll find this button in the top-right corner of your dashboard. When you click it, Tiny Ranker will display a message, presenting the two options to get in touch with the team behind it — either by providing them your phone number via email or by adding their account on Skype.

    We’re unsure about waiting times, but given that you have a 1-month free trial, it’s safe to assume that the Tiny Ranker team will contact you in that time period and help you get started with their tool.

    Tiny Ranker Plans and Prices

    If you happen to enjoy Tiny Ranker and find it a good fit for your company’s SEO needs, you’ll probably want to know how much the tool costs after the free trial is over. 

    Tiny Ranker offers four pricing plans to choose from, with the added ability to contact the company to discuss a personalized plan if you need to track more than 2,000 keywords.

    Tiny Ranker Pricing Plans

    Another commendable thing about Tiny Ranker is the fact that its users have access to all of the tool’s features, regardless of what pricing plan they choose. 

    Even with the $19/month starter plan, you’ll receive daily ranking updates, you’ll have access to the task manager, and you’ll be able to check multiple sites and add unlimited users.

    Here’s a quick overview of Tiny Ranker, before we move on to the tool’s features:

    Tiny Ranker Overview

    Monthly cost From $19/month to $199/month
    Number of keywords From 100 to 2,000 (you can request more keyword searches by contacting the company and figuring out a personalized plan)
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 3,000 – 60,000+
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0033
    Year funded 2014
    Number of employees 2 – 10
    Capterra reviews 4.5/5 stars
    Facebook followers 641
    Twitter followers 190

    Tiny Ranker Features

    Although feature-rich isn’t the first thing that would come to mind when describing Tiny Ranker, the tool does provide all of the basic features you’d expect out of a rank tracker. The simple, clean design makes the tool really easy to use, so you’ll have no problem navigating between the different options it offers.

    The main features of Tiny Ranker we’ll cover here are:

    1. Search engine, location, and device support
    2. Check frequency
    3. Competitor analysis
    4. Google Analytics integration
    5. On-page SEO
    6. URLs 
    7. Notes & reports

    Search Engine, Location, and Device Support

    While simplicity can make a rank tracker user-friendly, it should never come at the cost of fundamental features. The lack of customization options when setting up a campaign in Tiny Ranker is something that most people will hold against this tool.

    The only option you can play around with when creating a new campaign is the language of the search. Tiny Ranker only tracks how your keywords perform in Google, but the lack of support for other search engines isn’t the main issue. 

    A much bigger concern is that the tool doesn’t allow you to choose between mobile and desktop rankings — we assume it only tracks rankings for desktop queries — and it doesn’t allow you to track the rankings for a specific geographic region. 

    If you’re targeting a specific market and location customization is an important feature to you, then we strongly suggest checking out one of Tiny Ranker alternatives

    Check Frequency

    The story isn’t a whole lot different when it comes to check frequency. The rankings for all the keywords you add into Tiny Ranker are updated daily, meaning you can’t create specific keyword groups that you want to check less frequently — say, weekly or monthly.

    The tool does offer historical rankings, allowing you to select a specific time period and see a graph that shows how a particular keyword performed in a specific week or month, which makes up for the lack of customization options regarding the check frequency. 

    Competitor Analysis

    Tiny Ranker’s “Competitors” feature allows you to compare your rankings with the rankings of your competitors for any given keyword. 

    The feature shows you nine of the highest-ranking competitors, along with their “competitor score” — shown by percentage, which reflects how many keywords among the ones you’re tracking they rank on the first page of Google for. 

    You can click on “Compare” from the list of competitors to see more details. Tiny Ranker will display your and your competitor’s rankings for every keyword side-by-side, alongside the URLs for the competitor’s pages that are ranking for every keyword you’re tracking. 

    While not a strong process for professionals, Tiny Ranker’s competitor analysis can be useful for people who are new to SEO and want to keep an eye on what their competitors are doing to get an idea on how they can improve their own content. 

    Google Analytics Integration

    The most commendable feature of Tiny Ranker is Google Analytics integration. If you have a Google Analytics account already set up, you can integrate it with Tiny Ranker with a single click, and you will be able to see all the relevant Analytics data inside the tool’s dashboard.

    The process is as simple as navigating to the Google Analytics option in Tiny Ranker’s menu, adding your Google Analytics account, and clicking “grant access.” 

    This will enable the tool to extract valuable data from your Analytics account, saving you the trouble of switching back-and-forth between different tabs.

    On-Page SEO

    When it comes to on-page SEO, we run into the same issue again — thanks to the creators’ desire to make the tool minimalistic and easy-to-use, they overlooked the fact that many users may not realize the tool offers on-page SEO in the first place.

    This stems from the fact that there is no special icon or option in the tool’s menu that would make it apparent that Tiny Ranker provides information regarding on-page SEO. Instead, you have to navigate to “Keywords,” then click the tiny circle under the SEO tab on the list.

    How to Access On-Page Seo With Tiny Ranker

    Although not too big of an issue, the way you access on-page SEO inside Tiny Ranker is counter-intuitive and a bit convoluted. It would be way easier if the developers listed this feature as a separate option in the sidebar. 

    Once you click the red or green circle, however, the tool will provide you with all the information you need to improve the overall SEO ranking of the associated URL. It will show you a percentage-based SEO score of the page, as well as list all of the SEO issues it has, along with the actionable steps you can take to solve it.

    Actionable On-Page SEO Tips

    For example, Tiny Ranker’s on-page SEO will show you issues with:

    • Keyword usage
    • Keyword density
    • Meta title and description
    • Text length
    • Missing headings

    Overall, despite the weird way in which you have to access this feature, we do find Tiny Ranker’s on-page SEO quite good.

    URLs 

    The URLs feature got us a bit confused at first until we figured out it’s essentially a task manager that lets you assign tasks on specific URLs to different team members. 

    This feature goes hand-in-hand with the on-page SEO. When you discover certain SEO issues with a URL, you can navigate to the “URLs” feature within Tiny Ranker, select the issue, choose a team member from the list of users, and assign the fix to them.

    The tasks Tiny Ranker supports are related to:

    • Link building
    • Meta description
    • Landing pages
    • On-page
    • Text
    • Title

    You can also add a small description of a task — what the problem is, what needs to be done, and when. The user you assign the task to will receive an automatic email from Tiny Ranker, so they’ll be notified as soon as you create the task and can get to work immediately.

    Notes & Reports

    Notes within Tiny Ranker function exactly the same as tasks, with the exception of not assigning them to a particular user, but adding them to a keyword or an URL. Other than that, the process is exactly the same.

    When it comes to reports, Tiny Ranker offers basic reporting functionality. You can create custom reports, send them via email or download them, as well as have them scheduled if you want to provide clients or team members with regular updates. 

    The customization options are lacking once again, with the only variable you can select being which keywords you want the report to showcase — keywords in the top ten, top 30, top 100, or the ones that aren’t ranking at all.

    How We Automate Keyword Research Before Using Tiny Ranker

    Tiny Ranker is an excellent tool for beginners due to its user-friendly interface and straightforward approach. There aren’t too many options, so you’ll never feel overwhelmed.

    That said, before you can start using Tiny Ranker, you need to perform high-quality keyword research in order to know what keywords you need to track. 

    The problem is, the way most people do keyword research is fundamentally flawed. 

    • Doing high-quality keyword research takes a lot of time and requires exceptional skills and extensive SEO experience
    • It’s a manual, tedious process that nobody likes doing
    • Even the most experienced SEO professionals often rely on their intuition and do keyword research based on what “feels right”
    • This makes it impossible to delegate high-level keyword research to new SEOs with limited experience
    • You end up with inconsistent deliverables across different team members 

    The fact of the matter is — it doesn’t have to be this way. When you rely on raw data and proven processes to do your keyword research, anyone can do expert-level keyword research in minutes, and have it be perfect every time.

    You’ll need the right tool for the job, of course. Here’s how ClusterAi can help ensure that you nail keyword research and SEO every single time:

    1. ClusterAi takes data directly from Google, eliminating uncertainty and turning keyword research into an exact science
    2. It automates weeks-worth of work and turns keyword research into a quick, easy, automated process 
    3. The tool does all the hard work, making it possible for anyone can do high-quality keyword research in minutes, even if they have no clue about SEO
    4. The tool clusters keywords together to creates unique content topics, meaning you’ll always know exactly what keywords to rank for with each page

    Perfect Keyword Research Made Easy

    Here’s a real-world example of ClusterAi in action, so you can see just how easy it is to do perfect keyword research with this tool every time.

    Say we wanted to start an affiliate site in the pet niche. The main topic we want to cover is dog food. All we need to do to get started is:

    1. Open up the Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and search for the term “dog”
    2. Select the “Having same terms” feature and type in “food”

    This will show us all the queries that contain both terms. In seconds, Ahrefs returns with a list of over 455,000 keyword variations that meet our criteria.

    Now, we can export the top 25,000 keywords, based on their monthly search volume, and import them into ClusterAi.

    1. The tool scrapes the first ten results on page one of Google
    2. It compares every keyword on the list against the other 24,999 keywords
    3. ClusterAi then looks for keywords that share three or more URLs
    4. It groups the ones that have at least three URLs in common together to create unique content topics, based on the main keyword and its variations 

    Within minutes, the tool puts together a list of over 1,000 unique content topics. 

    The data is shown by:

    • Main keyword 
    • Total search volume 
    • The variations

    Click any cell to expand it and see the full list of variations.

    That’s weeks-worth of keyword research done in literally three minutes. And it’s all based on data from Google, so it’s perfect every time.

    Did You Find This Tiny Ranker Review on the First Page of Google?

    With ClusterAi, we consistently rank on the first page of Google. We have over 100,000 first-page keywords across different projects. And the crazy thing is — we outrank competitors with more backlinks, higher domain ratings, and bigger marketing and SEO budgets.

    That’s how powerful ClusterAi is!

SERPWatcher Full Review: All Features & Pricing

  1. SERPWatcher Review & Alternatives — A Simple Rank Tracker With Limited Functionality

    SERPWatcher is one of the SEO tools created by a Slovakian IT company — Mangools. 

    The tool is a simple rank tracker that allows you to see where you rank on Google for chosen keywords, export lists, and create reports, but doesn’t offer any advanced features.

    Coupled with the other SEO tools in the company’s portfolio, SERPWatcher can be a decent option for people who are looking for a quick way to assess their rankings, but it falls a bit short in the eyes of experienced SEO professionals. 

    Why You Should Listen to Us About SERPWatcher

    When it comes to SEO, keyword research, and rank tracking, we know what works. 

    In the last year alone, we took three projects from zero to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors.

    In this article, we’ll give you an unbiased review of SERPWatcher, so you can see whether the tool meets your needs and how well it integrates into your existing workflow. 

    We’ve reviewed over 35+ of the best rank trackers on speed, accuracy, price, and other crucial features, so you can also check how SERPWatcher stacks against the competitors

    About SERPWatcher

    SERPWatcher is a pretty straightforward keyword rank tracker that focuses on one thing but does it well. 

    While some tools attempt to attract new users by jamming in as many features as possible alongside rank tracking, Mangools — the company behind SERPWatcher — takes on a fundamentally different approach.

    Rather than mashing keyword tracking, backlink monitoring, site audit, and keyword research together in a single software, they dedicated a separate tool to each feature. This is great news for people who are fairly new to SEO since they won’t feel overwhelmed. 

    The best part about the company’s approach is that you don’t have to subscribe to each tool individually. With any subscription plan, you get access to all of Mangools’ SEO tools — it’s just that they function as separate apps. 

    While some people prefer having access to all the different functionalities from a single application or tab in their browser, we personally like the approach Mangools took with their SEO tools. 

    If you want to have everything all in one place, we suggest checking out some of SERPWatcher alternatives

    The great thing about SERPWatches is that you can start tracking your keywords in minutes. From the tool’s homepage, you can enter the domain you wish to track keywords for and click “Start tracking.”

    SERPWatcher Homepage

    The tool will prompt you to create an account and start your free trial. Once you enter your email address and password, you’ll be redirected to the tool’s dashboard automatically. 

    Alternatively, you can click the “Start 10-day FREE trial” button in the top-right corner of SERPWatcher’s homepage, but doing so just adds an extra step since you’ll have to navigate from the Mangools dashboard to the SERPWatcher. 

    One thing worth mentioning regarding the Mangools free trial is that they’re offering a 10% lifetime discount if you upgrade to a paid plan within an hour.

    Mangools Lifetime Discount

    This time limit kind of defeats the purpose of the ten-day free trial. You can work around it by simply creating a new account with a different email address after the trial period is over and taking advantage of the discount.

    Mangools Pricing

    The pricing plans for the company’s SEO tools aren’t too flexible. 

    There are only three plans to choose from: 

    • Basic
    • Premium
    • Agency

    The Basic plan costs $29.90 per month and only allows you to track up to 100 keywords. The most expensive option — the Agency plan — is $79.90 per month, with a limit of 1,200 daily keyword lookups.

    Mangools Pricing

    In our opinion, the “Agency” plan would hardly satisfy the need of any agency that’s doing SEO for several clients. We’d love to see Mangools add more subscription options, but as things stand, their tools are a good fit for individual marketers, affiliates, and business owners only. 

    Keep in mind that you’re not paying for just SERPWatcher with the monthly subscription. You will also have access to:

    1. KWFinder
    2. SERPChecker
    3. LinkMiner
    4. SiteProfiler

    Taking that into consideration, the subscription plans do offer good value for the money. 

    In this review, we’ll focus on SERPWatcher, but we’ll also take a quick look at other SEO tools Mangools offers and their functionality, so you can make an informed decision and decide whether the SEO package the company offers suits your needs.

    Here’s a quick overview of Mangools, before we take a look at the company’s SEO tools and their features:

    The first impression we got after logging in and accessing SERPWatcher’s dashboard is that the tool is a bit too simplistic. You’ll be prompted to create a campaign as soon as you log in, but other than the few options shown on screen when setting up the keywords you want to track,  there are absolutely no features you can access from the dashboard.

    SERPWatcher Dashboard

    The only options you’ll have available are “Tracking,” which shows the campaigns you have created, and “New Tracking” that allows you to create a new campaign to track keywords for a different domain.

    SERPWatcher offers only the most basic functionality you would expect from a rank tracker. Plus, you’ll have to wait a couple of minutes before you can see any data regarding the keywords you’re tracking. 

    After the tool returns the results for your tracking, you’ll be able to do a bit more, like organizing keywords with tags, setting up notifications, and creating reports. 

    The key features of SERPWatcher are:

    1. Search engine support
    2. Device support
    3. Location support
    4. Check frequency
    5. Reports

    Search Engine Support

    SERPWatcher provides keyword rankings for Google only. Other search engines are not supported, so if you want to see your rankings on Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, etc. — you will need to turn towards one of SERPWatcher alternatives.

    Device Support

    SERPWatcher allows you to track your rankings for both desktop and mobile searches. Although you cannot select both during campaign creation, the tool does have a feature that allows you to “clone” your tracking for different devices.

    This way, you won’t have to set up both campaigns manually. You can just create one for desktop, then click “Mobile” from the tool’s dashboard, and choose the “Clone for Mobile devices” option. SERPWatcher will remember all the parameters you set for the initial campaign and apply them to the mobile tracking.

    Keep in mind that desktop and mobile searches count separately towards your daily keyword tracking limit. If you added 15 keywords in a desktop campaign and cloned it for mobile, the tool will count that as 30 keyword lookups total.

    Location Support

    When it comes to the location, SERPWatcher allows you to narrow down your search to a specific country, city, DMA region, or neighborhood. 

    The option isn’t apparent from the get-go, but once you click the location field during campaign creation and start typing the desired location, the tool will provide all the various options you can choose from. 

    Check Frequency

    There are no options to adjust the check frequency in SERPWatcher. Instead, the tool automatically updates the keyword rankings each day to provide you with fresh data regarding your site’s position on Google.

    Reports

    SERPWatcher’s reporting feature is quite neat. Rather than simply letting you download a PDF report, the tool enables you to generate interactive reports. 

    To share the report with a client or a team member, all you need to do is click the “Share tracking” button from the tool’s dashboard. A window will pop-up with a sharable link that you can copy and paste to share it with anyone.

    SERPWatcher Share Tracking Feature

    What this does is it essentially gives other people access to your dashboard, where they can see all the keyword details like their current position, position changes, search volume history, and the URLs that rank for any given keyword.

    You can also choose to schedule weekly or monthly reports, as well as set up alerts to get notified when a keyword enters/leaves the top ten or top 100 results. 

    With only four options available, the customization for the alerts is sorely lacking. You won’t be able to receive a notification when a keyword drops from the first to the fifth position, for example. The notification will pop-up only if it falls below the tenth place. 

    KWFinder

    The Mangools KWFinder allows you to perform a quick search of a specific keyword or domain and provides you with a wealth of information regarding related keywords. 

    This is an excellent way to discover keywords that you can rank for with your content, as well as unearth new keywords related to your website’s main topic that you can create content around.

    To get started with the KWFinder, all you need to do is enter the desired keyword or domain. The tool will then provide you with a list of related keywords, alongside their monthly search volumes, cost per click (CPC), level of competition in Pay Per Click (PPC) Google Ads, and keyword difficulty.

    Mangools KWFinder

    Aside from the “Related Keywords” section, the KWFinder also offers the “Autocomplete” and “Questions” functions. The former is an excellent way to see what long-tail keywords you can rank for with your pages, while the latter gives you valuable insights regarding the questions your target audience is asking, so you can optimize your content better.

    You can also click on any of the results KWFinder lists to see the trend for the given keyword and a list of websites that rank the highest for it. 

    SERPChecker

    The SERPChecker is basically a competitor analysis tool, allowing you to check the rankings for a particular keyword and see which of your competitors rank the highest for it.

    The tool will create a list of competitors for the given keyword and provide you with a ton of information regarding the pages that rank for the chosen keyword, like:

    • Link profile strength
    • Domain authority
    • Page authority
    • Citation flow
    • Trust flow
    • Facebook shares
    • Backlinks
    • Referring Domains

    SERPChecker

    You can visit each page by clicking the link on the list, to see what your highest-ranked competitors are doing right and get ideas for your own content. There’s also an option to see the Snapshot, and you can export the list to CSV or save it as an image.

    In the top-right corner, you can click on “Metrics settings” to choose which metrics the tool will show. There are around 50 different metrics you can select, so the insights SERPChecker provides can be quite valuable.

    LinkMiner

    LinkMiner is a backlink analysis tool that lets you assess the strength of your banking profile in seconds. 

    The tool shows you a comprehensive list of all the domains that are linking to the articles on your website and provides information regarding:

    • Link strength
    • Anchor texts
    • Number of referring domains
    • Active backlinks
    • New and lost links

    LinkMiner

    You can sort the results and export the list to CSV and can retrieve up to 1,200,000 backlinks in LinkMiner with the Agency subscription plan.

    SiteProfiler

    The SiteProfiler gives you a quick overview of your website’s SEO performance, but it is not a site audit tool. 

    The information SiteProfiler provides is of limited use, given that it only displays your site’s domain authority, page authority, citation flow, and trust flow. The tool does not highlight any SEO issues different pages on your website might be having. It merely shows you the top content based on two metrics — Facebook shares and referring domains. 

    Overall Impression of Serpwatcher

    We wouldn’t say that the SEO tools Mangools offers are bad, but their UIs are not very intuitive, and all of the tools provide limited information. While it might meet the needs of new SEOs, bloggers, and affiliates, we would not recommend the Mangools SEO package to experienced SEO professionals.

    How We Automate Keyword Research Before Using SERPWatcher or Any Other Rank Tracker

    Keyword research is broken. 

    1. Most people share advice on how to do keyword research based on their intuition, but nobody is using data to make keyword decisions
    2. There’s a lot of trial and error, and mistakes are bound to happen when people rely on their “gut feelings” 
    3. Even experienced SEOs are doing keyword research manually, which often takes weeks
    4. This makes it impossible to delegate high-quality keyword research to less experienced junior SEOs
    5. You end up with inconsistent deliverables between different team members

    At contentdistribution.com, we take a fundamentally different approach to keyword research — one that relies on raw data. 

    With ClusterAi, we automate keyword research and turn it into an exact science, allowing anyone to perform expert-level keyword research and ensuring it’s perfect every single time. 

    Here’s why doing keyword research with ClusterAi is the superior option:

    1. ClusterAi pulls data straight from Google, meaning your keyword research is based on accurate, relevant, up-to-date information, rather than on what “feels right” 
    2. The tool automates the entire process, allowing anyone to do expert-level keyword research, regardless of their SEO experience
    3. It saves you weeks-worth of work by providing you with a comprehensive list of keywords in just minutes 
    4. The data groups core keywords with their variations, so you’ll know exactly what keywords to rank for with each page

    Perfect Keyword Research in Minutes, Every Single Time

    We understand that “perfect keyword research in minutes” may sound hard to believe, especially if you’re new to the world of SEO. 

    Instead of trying to convince you how powerful ClusterAi is, we’ll give you a real-life example to show you how the tool works in practice. 

    Say we’re starting a project in the pet niche. One of the topics we want to create content around is dog food. Before we can start writing the articles, we need to find the keywords that we can rank for. 

    1. We need to open up Ahrefs, navigate to its Keyword Explorer, and type in “dog” 
    2. Then, we can select the “Having same terms” feature and add “food,” so the tool will show us all queries that include both terms

    Ahrefs shows us over 455,000 results for search queries that include “dog + food.”

    All we need to do now is export the top 25,000 keywords with the highest search volume and import the list into ClusterAi

    Now, we can just let ClusterAi run, and the tool will do all the heavy lifting for us:

    1. ClusterAi scrapes the top ten results on Google for every keyword on the list
    2. It compares each of the 25,000 keywords against every other keyword
    3. The tool searches for keywords that have three or more URLs in common
    4. It groups the ones that meet that criteria together to create unique content topics

    In minutes, you’ll have a list of 1,000+ unique topics that you can create content around, and you’ll know exactly what keywords to rank for with each page. 

    The data in the list is shown by:

    • Main keyword — the core keyword you need to create content around
    • Total search volume — combined search volume of all the keywords in a group
    • Variations — related keywords that you can rank for with the same page

    It doesn’t get any more data-driven than this! 

    Click on any cell in the list above to expand it and see the full list of keyword variations.

    See how easy it is to do high-level keyword research with ClusterAi? Once you import a list of keywords, the tool does everything for you. And since everything is based on data from Google, your keyword research will be perfect every time. 

    This means that anyone can do perfect keyword research in minutes, even if they have absolutely no SEO experience.

It will also provide you with a quick overview of the effectiveness of your overall search engine optimization (SEO) efforts.

      There are a number of different rank trackers available online. If you’re just starting to dip your toes into SEO and are trying to figure out which rank tracker to use, the sheer number of options available online can be a bit overwhelming.

      In this article, we’ll take a look at SERPROBOT, go over its features and capabilities, and show you how you can use this tool in conjunction with ClusterAi to get the most out of your keyword research efforts and secure high SERP rankings.

      About SERPROBOT

      SERPROBOT used to be known as Serplab.co.uk, but the company decided to rebrand and drop the “co.uk” in an effort to reach a global audience. SERPROBOT is among the more popular SERP rank trackers, and we’re inclined to believe that it’s because the tool used to be completely free. 

      The company changed SERPROBOT’s pricing recently, but the copy on their website still leads people to believe that the tool is free.

      SERPROBOT Homepage

      The free SERP check on the tool’s homepage is merely a spot checker, allowing you to enter your domain and check where you rank for a number of different keywords. This is basically a faster alternative to checking where your website ranks for different keywords manually. The main purpose of this spot check is to introduce you to the tool quickly and get you to register. 

      You can also see the rankings of a specific page on your website by checking the “Use URL” box, and can even see how your competitors are doing for a particular keyword you want to rank for. By default, the tool offers you five fields to input keywords, but you can always add more if you want to.

      Getting Started with SERPROBOT

      The page also introduces you to various features SERPROBOT offers and prompts you to register for free. Now, remember that we said that, with its rebranding, SERPROBOT also changed its pricing. 

      They still offer a generous 14-day free trial, which is more than enough time to check out the tool and see if you like it, but you’ll have to pay a monthly subscription after that. The price starts at $4.99 for one Bot, which can perform up to 300 searches per day, and goes up to $49.90 for ten SERP Bots.

      SERPROBOT Pricing

      The copy on their pricing page pitches the $4.99 as a limited time 50% discount.

      SERPROBOT Overview

      Monthly cost $4.99 per SERP Bot
      Number of keywords 300 per SERP Bot (max. 3000)
      Search frequency  30
      Actual searches per month 90,000
      Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0005
      Year funded 2014
      Number of employees 26
      Facebook followers 1977
      Twitter followers 2324

      SERPROBOT Features

      Before we get to the meat of the matter and see what SERPROBOT can do for you, let’s take a quick look at the signup process for the tool.

      Thankfully, the process is rather straightforward. Once you click the “Register FREE!” button, all you need to do is enter your email address and set up a password, and you can start using the tool completely free of charge for 14 days.

      SERPROBOT Free Trial

      You don’t need to enter your credit card information, so there’s no need to worry about being automatically charged for it after the 14 days if you decide you don’t want to continue using SERPROBOT.

      Note that the free SERP Bot is somewhat limited in its capabilities. You can check only 25 keywords per day, but that’s still plenty to get a feel for the tool.

      We’ve gotten to the part you’re probably most interested in — what can SERPROBOT do? The basic features any rank tracker should offer include:

      1. Search engine support
      2. Location support
      3. Device support
      4. Check frequency

      Search Engine Support

      Depending on where your business is located, Google might not be the only — or even the primary — search engine people are using for search queries. Yandex, for example, is quite popular in Russia. 

      It’s always good for a rank tracker to offer support for other search engines, apart from Google, and SERPROBOT has you covered on that front. This tool provides support for:

      • Google local
      • Bing
      • Yahoo
      • YouTube

      Different Project Types in SERPROBOT

      Note that these are advanced options that are only available to you if you pay the $4.99 monthly subscription for an additional SERP Bot. One thing we like in particular is that SERPROBOT supports YouTube searches. This is a crucial feature for businesses that rely heavily on video content and YouTube marketing. It allows you to see just how well your video positions against competitors for the keywords you want to rank for. 

      Location support

      Another crucial factor to consider when gauging the effectiveness of your SEO campaign is the users’ location. If you’re targeting a specific market or geographic location, you can add these variables into your project on SERPROBOT and see how your site ranks for keywords you add in a particular area. 

      With the free trial, you can only select global Google regions, but the paid version allows you to get a lot more specific and even narrow down the search location to a specific city. This is invaluable for brick & mortar businesses whose primary target audience is located in a specific geographic area.

      Choosing a Search Location 

      When selecting a specific location, click the button shown in the image above to make sure that Google Maps recognizes it. Otherwise, the feature might not work properly, and you’ll just end up wasting your limited searches.

      Also note that you can select the language of the results, which might be useful if you’re only targeting English-speakers, or if you’re, for instance, running a business in Amsterdam and only want to target the Dutch-speaking audience.

      Device Support

      When checking your SERP rankings, another useful parameter to consider is the device from which the users are typing their queries. Depending on how well your website is optimized for different devices, you might rank differently for desktop and mobile. 

      According to Statista, the mobile share of organic traffic for the first quarter of 2020 was a staggering 56%! This means that, on average, over half of users find businesses on their phones.

      The ability to compare your desktop and mobile rankings is crucial. With SERPROBOT, you can quickly see how your rankings for different devices stack up against each other. If your mobile rankings aren’t as impressive as rankings for desktop, that’s a clear sign you need to put more work in making sure your website is optimized for mobile. 

      Check Frequency

      Some rank trackers limit how often you can check your rankings. Thankfully, SERPROBOT isn’t one of them. 

      Once you set up a project in SERPROBOT, you can select it from your dashboard and select “Edit frequencies” to choose how often the tool will check your rankings for keywords you assigned to that project.

      SERPROBOT Check Frequency Options

      As you can see, you can choose to have it run the check every two hours, daily, weekly, or even yearly. The best option, in our opinion, is to have the SERPROBOT perform the checks daily, but you are free to choose the option that you’re most comfortable with. Regardless, it’s always good when a rank tracker offers you this much flexibility regarding search frequency.

      Advanced Options

      Apart from the standard features, SERPROBOT has a few advanced capabilities that you might find useful. 

      Most notably, SERPROBOT allows you to add keywords in bulk. This is a fantastic option when used together with ClusterAi since it allows you to add keyword clusters quickly and check the rankings for both the core keyword and its variations.

      Another awesome feature in SERPROBOT’s arsenal is automated real-time email alerts. When there’s a sudden change in your rankings, on any of your projects, the tool will send you an email alert, notifying you that something’s up. This way, you can react promptly, and if there’s a sudden drop in your rankings, make the necessary adjustments to your SEO strategy and optimize your pages better.

      One more thing we want to point out is the third-party view access feature. If you’re running SEO projects for clients, SERPROBOT gives you the opportunity to provide them with view access to the projects, so they can check the results of your efforts whenever they find it most convenient.

      The one potential drawback of this tool is that it can bug out and have some downtime on occasion, but the developers are aware of these and typically fix them rather quickly.

      How We Use ClusterAi to Automate our Keyword Research Before Tracking Them with SERPROBOT

      Many SERPROBOT users use ClusterAi to pick which keywords they want to track. ClusterAi is a powerful keyword research tool that enables you to perform expert-level keyword research in minutes, even if you have absolutely no previous SEO experience. 

      If you simply use SERPROBOT, select a page on your website, and add a bunch of different keywords, you might be surprised by the results. One of the most common mistakes people make when trying to optimize their pages is attempting to rank for multiple main keywords with the same page. 

      If you take this approach, instead of ranking for all the keywords you want to, you’ll end up ranking for none. Once you understand how Google actually works, this becomes obvious. 

      The thing is, keyword research is broken. 

      1. Doing effective keyword research takes skills and experience
      2. You have to manually compare each keyword against hundreds of other keywords, which often takes several weeks
      3. Most people rely on what “feels right” and don’t use data to do keyword research
      4. Without a consistent approach and proven processes, it’s impossible to delegate high-level keyword research to less-experienced SEOs
      5. You’ll end up with inconsistent deliverables between different term members

      Effective optimization is the foundation of success for businesses that want to drive tons of organic search traffic. The only way to optimize your pages effectively is by ranking for a single main keyword and its variations.

      If you’re trying to rank based on what “feels right” and jam as many keywords as you can in your limited digital real estate, the insights you’ll get from SERPROBOT won’t do you much good. You’ll merely see the results of different pages, but the tool can’t tell you what the underlying reasons for low rankings are. 

      That’s why ClusterAi pairs excellently with SERPROBOT and similar rank trackers. With ClusterAi, you can adopt a data-driven approach to keyword research. 

      1. ClusterAi eliminates uncertainty by pulling data directly from Google
      2. You don’t have to stress about whether you did it right — with ClusterAi, keyword research is perfect every time
      3. It allows anyone to do expert-level keyword research, regardless of experience
      4. The entire process is fully automated — you’ll do several weeks-worth of keyword research in minutes
      5. ClusterAi gives you a list of unique content topics based on core keywords and their variations, so you’ll know exactly what to rank for with every piece of content you create

      Weeks-Worth of Keyword Research in Minutes

      Let us give you a bit of context to show you how easy it is to do perfect keyword research with ClusterAi every single time.

      Here’s how we leveraged ClusterAi for Doggypedia, a project in the pet niche: 

      1. We opened up Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and searched for the term “dog” 
      2. Then, we selected the “Having same terms” feature 

      This resulted in over 10,000,000 queries that include “dog.”

      We wanted to narrow this down and focus on a more specific topic. Next, we included “food” into the search terms to get results that include both of these terms. 

      Ahrefs showed us over 455,000 variations for “dog + food.”

      We exported the top 25,000 keyword variations by volume, then simply imported this list into ClusterAi.

      Then, we simply let ClusterAi run. The tool does everything automatically, allowing us to do perfect keyword research in minutes. 

      1. ClusterAi first scrapes the top ten results on Google for every keyword on the list
      2. Then the tool compares all keywords against each other
      3. It looks for keywords that share three or more URLs to show you what keywords can rank together
      4. Finally, it clusters all the 25,000 keyword variations into unique content topics 

      That’s all there is to it! After several minutes, you’ll get a comprehensive list with over 1,000 unique content topics. The data is conveniently sorted by:

      • Main keyword — the core keyword in each group; the one with the highest volume
      • Search volume — total search volume for all keywords in one group
      • Variations — all keyword variations that can rank together with the main keyword

      ClusterAi makes it possible to do several weeks-worth of keyword research instantly. Since the entire process is fully automated and relies on data from Google, anyone can do it, and it’s perfect every time! 

      How to Start Tracking Your Rankings with SERPROBOT

      Tracking your rankings with SERPROBOT is pretty straightforward. 

      Once you register your free account and log in, navigate to “My dashboard” in the top right corner. From here, simply click the “New project” button to create a project you wish to track rankings for.

      ClusterAi makes it possible to do several weeks-worth of keyword research instantly. Since the entire process is fully automated and relies on data from Google, anyone can do it, and it’s perfect every time! 

      How to Start Tracking Your Rankings with SERPROBOT

      Tracking your rankings with SERPROBOT is pretty straightforward. 

      Once you register your free account and log in, navigate to “My dashboard” in the top right corner. From here, simply click the “New project” button to create a project you wish to track rankings for.

      Here, add the project name so that you can tell different projects apart once you start adding dozens of them. Then, type in your domain name, or if you want to check the rankings for a specific page — check “Use URL” and copy-paste the URL of the page.

      Once that step is complete, you can add keywords manually or import them from ClusterAi in bulk.

      If you get the paid version of SERPROBOT, you can also adjust a variety of advanced options to change project type, perform the search for a specific device, location, etc.

      After you add the project, you can tinker with other options, such as setting up email reports, adding competitors to see how they rank for the keywords you added, changing the check frequency, and so on. You can also add new keywords, delete existing ones, force refresh search volumes, and export the data as CSV.

      After that, you’re pretty much done. You can add more projects if you want, and once SERPROBOT performs the checks, you’ll be able to see how your website or specific pages rank for different keywords. You’ll also be able to see graphs for all the different keywords, as well as to see how much your rankings have improved (or worsened) for those keywords.

      Did You Find This Page on Google?

      If you found this page on Google while searching for information about SERPROBOT, that’s only a testament to the power of ClusterAi.

Serpfox Review: Is Serpfox the Best Rank Tracker for You?

Serpfox Review & Alternatives — How Good Is This “Clever” Rank Tracker?

Serpfox is a handy little tool that dubs itself as the “industry standard” for rank tracking. This rank tracker is a decent option for small businesses, as well as affiliates and marketers who are just starting to dip their toes into the world of search engine optimization (SEO).

The main pitch of Serpfox is its minimalistic approach. The tool doesn’t try to be fancy and win customers over with an over-the-top user interface. Instead, Serpfox presents the data in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, making rank tracking as straightforward as it can be. This is why it’s appealing to people who are fairly new to SEO and keyword tracking. 

Serpfox does one thing, but it does it really well. The fact that Serpfox only focuses on rank tracking means the tool is super easy to navigate, and you won’t get overwhelmed with dozens of different options and functionalities, as you would with some more advanced tools.

Why You Should Listen to Us About Serpfox

When it comes to SEO, we have extensive experience and the results to show that we know what we’re talking about. 

In the last year alone, we took three projects from nearly 0 to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors.

Doggypedia.org (Publisher)

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Serpfox’s features to show you what this rank tracker can and cannot do and help you make an informed decision. 

If you conclude that Serpfox isn’t quite what you’re looking for, we reviewed 35+ rank trackers based on accuracy, reliability, pricing, etc.

Rank Trackers We Reviewed

Check out our hub page for Serpfox alternatives.

Let’s jump right in and see how good this “clever” rank tracker really is.

About Serpfox

Serpfox has been on the market for a decade now and has since undergone a rebrand, modernizing its logo and smoothing out some of its features. The company didn’t add any advanced features over the years, but that decision is in line with their philosophy. 

Serpfox doesn’t try to compete with complex tools like Ahrefs and SEMRush, which offer keyword research and other advanced SEO-related capabilities. This tool aims to be a great rank tracker, focusing on speed and accuracy, while maintaining an intuitive software that allows anyone to check their search engine results page (SERP) rankings in minutes.

What’s great about Serpfox is the fact that it provides a zero-commitment way to check out the tool. Rather than the traditional free trial, Serpfox allows you to “sign up for free.” The subtle difference between the two terms means that Serpfox’s free version isn’t time-limited, so you can check it out at your leisure.

To get started, you will need to opt-in by entering your email address on the tool’s homepage. You can use any email if you aren’t too keen on receiving promotional messages in your business mail inbox. The tool doesn’t require a credit card, so there’s no risk associated with trying it out.

Serpfox Homepage

What’s also worth noting is that Serpfox’s free version is limited to ten keywords. So, although you have unlimited time to check out the tool, you can only track the ten keywords you initially added, unless you upgrade to a paid plan.

Compared to its competitors, Serpfox is quite affordable. The plans start at $10/month for 100 keywords and go up to $900/month for 60,000 keywords. Another interesting thing is that Serpfox offers white-labeling. From $50 onward, you can rebrand the tool with your logo and resell it under your own brand.

Serpfox Pricing

There’s also an option to switch to annual billing. If you do so, you will get the first two months completely free.

Here’s a quick overview of Serpfox:

Serpfox Overview

Monthly cost From $10/month to $900/month
Number of keywords From 100 keywords to 60,000 keywords, depending on the plan
Search frequency  30
Actual searches per month 3,000 – 1,800,000
Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0017
Number of employees 10
Year funded 2010
Capterra reviews N/A
g2 reviews N/A
Facebook followers N/A
Twitter followers 65

The fact that Serpfox doesn’t have a Facebook page and has only 65 Twitter followers despite being on the network for ten years speaks volumes regarding its popularity. 

From what we’ve seen during this review, we got the impression that Seprfox was the company’s internal tool that they decided to offer publicly for a bit of extra revenue. 

Minimalistic or Bare-Bones? 

Another interesting thing on Serpfox’s homepage is the “Docs” tab in the header. While we can’t fathom why they chose to name the page “Docs,” we must say we expected a blog that would provide a bit more insight into how the tool works. As it turns out, it’s just an FAQ page that provides some additional information about the rank tracker.

Serpfox “Docs” Page

The tool has been around for a decade, and given the fact that the company is selling a rank tracker, it would be reasonable to expect that they’d invest a bit more effort into creating blog posts that rank high on Google.

Instead, what you’ll find here are two-sentence explanations of the most obvious features and capabilities of Serpfox that you probably would’ve gauged from reading through the tool’s homepage. 

While this minimalistic approach might be cool for the tool itself, the impression that Serpfox’s website leaves is that hardly any effort went into creating it. In all honesty, it looks more like a five-minute landing page than a fully fleshed-out website.

That said, let’s not judge a book by its cover or, in this case, a tool by its homepage. 

Inside Serpfox — Features & Functionality 

The situation isn’t much different once you log into Serpfox’s dashboard. In fact, this is all you’ll see in your browser when you log in:

Serpfox Dashboard — Default Screen

To get started with Serpfox, simply click the “Add Keywords” button in the top right corner. When you do, a form will pop-up, where you can add the URL of the website you wish to track keywords for and the keywords themselves.

Adding Keywords in Serpfox

If you want to track keywords for a specific page, click on the advanced options and check the “Match URL exactly” option. You can also customize your tracking by selecting the platform and choosing between:

  • Desktop-only
  • Mobile-only
  • Desktop and mobile

The tool also provides location and language support, which can be useful for checking your rankings for a specific market. 

The search engine field allows you to choose between Google, Bing, and Yandex, which is always a plus. Keep in mind that, if you want to check the same keywords for multiple search engines, you’ll have to create two projects, and each of them will count towards your keyword tracking quota.

Once you add the URL and the keywords, the tool will start performing the checks immediately. You can click the URL in the dashboard to expand the view and see how each of the keywords ranks, along with their search volumes.

Serpfox Project Overview

Clicking on any of the keywords will show you a graph, giving you a visual representation of how your website is ranking for that particular keyword. One thing to note is that Serpfox doesn’t allow you to choose the check frequency. The tool performs the checks automatically, although it’s difficult to tell at what intervals. 

Apart from rank tracking, Serpfox also offers the following features:

  1. Reports
  2. Notifications
  3. Client management

Reports

Serpfox offers a fairly straightforward reporting function. By navigating to the “Reports” tab, you can either create a report containing all the data for the chosen time period or set up an automated report that the tool can send to your email daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Creating a Report in Serpfox

When creating a report, you also have the option to choose between different formats, which is always a plus. 

What’s also helpful is the ability to select the keyword group you want to create the report for. This way, you can see the ranking for a particular keyword and all of its variations and get a realistic view of how your website ranks for that group and how much traffic the keyword group is generating. 

This feature is incredibly useful when used together with ClusterAi, which can help you automate your keyword research and group related keywords into unique content topics. We’ll explain how Serpfox and ClusterAi can work together in the following section, but let’s go over the remaining Serpfox features first. 

Notifications

Serpfox also allows you to set up custom notifications by choosing between several conditions. Whenever a change in your ranking meets the criteria you listed, the tool will let you know immediately.

Customizing Notifications in Serpfox

Click the drop-down menu to choose the rule for the notification, enter your website’s URL, and choose the keyword group you want to receive notifications for. 

You can also change the number on the right, so, for instance, you can receive a notification when a keyword from the chosen group hits the #1 spot by putting in “1” in the field. The same goes for gaining and losing rank — just choose the number of positions, and the tool will automatically notify you of the changes that fit the criteria. 

Client Management 

If you’re doing SEO for a client, you can simply navigate to the “Clients” tab from Serpfox’s dashboard and add as many clients as you want. All you need to do is input their name and email address.

Once they receive the invitation and click the link in the email, they’ll have access to your projects inside Serpfox. Unfortunately, there isn’t much customization within this option — you can’t restrict which projects they can see. 

The main idea of the client management feature is convenience and the ability for your clients to track the performance of your SEO efforts in real-time. However, due to the lack of customization, if you’re running dozens of different projects, your clients might be overwhelmed. In that case, scheduling a report and sending it to them via email daily might be the better option.

Quick Recap

Overall, we’d say Serpfox is a decent rank tracker. 

Although not as visually appealing or highly advertised as most of its competitors, Serpfox does provide all the basic functionalities you would expect from a rank tracker:

  1. Search engine support — Google, Bing, Yandex
  2. Keyword groups and search volume
  3. Language support 
  4. Location support 
  5. Device support — both desktop and mobile
  6. Reporting and notifications
  7. Client management

The main advantage of Serpfox, in our opinion, is its affordability. For just $10 a month, you can track up to a hundred keywords, and you can always upgrade to a different plan or downscale, depending on your needs.

ClusterAi and Serpfox — Automate Your Keyword Research and Make Sure You Track the Right Keyword Groups

Tracking your SERP ranking with Serpfox can provide you with insights regarding the effectiveness of your SEO efforts. That said, the data from Serpfox (and other rank trackers) will only give you an overview of the situation — it doesn’t tell you what keywords you should track and why you’re ranking low for some of them. 

The fact of the matter is that keyword research is often quite confusing. There are so many experts online sharing different advice. 

Who should we listen to?

  • HubSpot?
  • Neil Patel?
  • Brian Dean?
  • Moz? 
  • Ahrefs?
  • SEMRush?
  • Yoast?

Regardless of whose advice you choose to follow, you’ll run into the same problems:

  1. All of these experts are making keyword decisions from the gut — they rely on intuition and past experiences, but aren’t using data to make keyword decisions
  2. Effective keyword research takes a ton of time, a high level of skill, and significant SEO experience
  3. Mistakes are bound to happen, and it’s nearly impossible to delegate high-quality keyword research to junior SEOs

This is where a powerful keyword research tool like ClusterAi can do wonders for your SEO campaign. 

  1. ClusterAi scrapes data directly from Google, ensuring your keyword research is perfect every time
  2. The tool fully automates the keyword research process, saving you weeks-worth of work
  3. It’s easy to use, meaning anyone can do expert-level keyword research with ClusterAi in minutes, even if they have no prior SEO experience
  4. The tool clusters the keywords into unique content topics, each with a main keyword and its variations, so you’ll know exactly what keywords you can rank for with every page

Keyword Research and Tracking Made Easy

Let’s take a look at how ClusterAi works in practice, so you can see just how easy it is to do perfect keyword research with the right tool.

As an example, we’ll take a project in the pet niche.

  1. To get started, we’ll open up Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and search for the term “dog”
  2. We’ll select the “Having same terms” feature to show us all queries that include the term we want to rank for

After a few moments, Ahrefs returns with over ten million different results for keywords that include the term “dog.”

We want to get a bit more specific, so we’ll add “food” alongside “dog” to see how many people look for information online regarding dog food. 

This time, we get a list of 455,000 variations.

That’s still a bit much, but Ahrefs allows us to export 25,000 keyword variations with the highest search volume. Then, we can simply import that list of keywords into ClusterAi

The tool does everything from here on out. 

  1. ClusterAi checks the top ten results on the first page of Google for every single keyword
  2. It then compares each keyword on the list against all other keywords
  3. The tool looks for keywords that have three or more URLs in common
  4. ClusterAi sorts the keywords that meet that criteria into unique content topics 

The end-result is a comprehensive list that shows data by:

  • Main keyword — the core keyword you’ll be creating the content around
  • Total search volume — number of monthly searches across all variations is a group
  • The variations keywords you can rank for together with the main keyword

Click on any of the cells to expand them and see the full list of keyword variations.

That’s literally all there is to it! From there, you can simply copy all the keywords from one cluster and create a keyword group in Serpfox — or any other rank tracker. This allows you to see the real picture of how each of your pages is performing for the keywords you want to rank for. 

If you neglect keyword variations, you might have a skewed image of your website’s SEO performance. Serpfox might show that you rank on the first page of Google for a particular keyword, making you think that you nailed SEO. 

In reality, if you’re not ranking for all of the keyword’s high-volume variations, you’re failing to get your content in front of thousands of visitors. 

That’s why the data-driven approach ClusterAi provides is the best way to ensure you get the most out of your SEO efforts!

SerpBook Review: Pricing & Features

  1. Keyword.com (SerpBook) Review & Alternatives — Is the Rebranded SerpBook Any Good?

    SerpBook no longer exists. The tool was rebranded into Keyword.com, but very little has changed in terms of its functionality. 

    In this article, we’ll take a look at what this rank tracker offers and talk about Keyword.com alternatives, so you can choose the rank tracker that best fits your SEO needs.

    Why You Should Listen to Us About Keyword.com

    If you’re even slightly familiar with the concept of affiliate marketing, you’re probably aware of the fact that reviews done by affiliates don’t exactly paint the real picture of the product they’re trying to pitch you. They usually hype up the benefits — sometimes even blowing them out of proportion — and avoid talking about the disadvantages of the tool they’re recommending.

    Most of the online reviews of SerpBook (they don’t seem to have updated the reviews to reflect the brand change) are from affiliates who get commissions for generating sales. It doesn’t come as a surprise that all of them are praising Keyword.com as the best rank tracker the world has ever seen. As you can imagine, this isn’t exactly the case.

    That’s why we will give you an honest, unbiased review of Keyword.com. Instead of telling you how awesome or how bad it is, we’ll go over its features, explain what the tool can and cannot do, and let you draw your own conclusions. 

    We’ve reviewed over 35 of the most popular rank trackers on: 

    • Speed
    • Accuracy
    • Check frequency
    • Other crucial features

    This way, if you determine that Keyword.com isn’t for you, you can always check out various rank tracker alternatives to find the one that will align with your workflows and meet your needs. 

    When it comes to SEO, we know what we’re talking about. We’re not just giving you our opinion based on what “feels” right. All the information we share is based on data and real-life results. 

    In the last year alone, we took three projects from approximately zero to 100,000+ monthly organic search visitors!

    With that out of the way, let’s jump right in and take a closer look at Keyword.com, formerly known as SerpBook.

    About Keyword.com (SerpBook)

    Despite the rebranding, Keyword.com remains much the same tool, just under a different name. We could not find the answer as to why SerpBook opted for a rebrand, but from what we’ve seen on the tool’s website, they don’t appear to have changed anything other than the pricing.

    The design was also tweaked slightly to align with the new branding. From a clean, professional-looking website of SerpBook, Keyword.com transitioned into what appears to be a sales page. 

    This time around, the company has opted for a more salesy approach. The tool’s homepage emphasizes social proof and features the company’s mission statement, but tells you very little about the tool itself. All you have to go on is one screenshot of the tool’s dashboard.

    Keyword.com Homepage

    You would have to navigate to the Product Overview page to get any idea of what this rank tracker offers. Here, you’ll get a glimpse of the rank tracker’s features, but the website copy still won’t tell you anything regarding the check frequency, search engine support, accuracy, and other critical features you’d expect out of a rank tracker.

    To learn what the tool actually does, your best bet would be to start a free trial. 

    Keyword.com Free Trial & Pricing

    The best way to get a feel for any type of software is to try it out. At a glance, Keyword.com doesn’t appear to offer a free trial. The only options you have from the tool’s homepage are Pricing, Case Studies, and Free Resources.

    The resource page is just a handful of links that lead to a bunch of videos where the tool’s creator talks about “ranking in millions of dollars.” Although these resources can be useful, they don’t really teach you anything about effectively using the rank tracker.

    Keyword.com “Resources” 

    One thing that we have to commend Keyword.com for is the fact that they’ve revamped their pricing and moved away from an ambiguous model to uniform pricing plans. In the past, the Starter plan was over $300 per month, and allowed you to track up to 3,000 keywords.

    Keyword.com’s Old Pricing

    No matter how you look at it, $300+ a month for 3,000 keywords is a bit too steep. There are plenty of Keyword.com alternatives that provide the same amount of keywords for one-tenth of the price.

    We assume that the company became aware of this fact after a few months, given that they’ve completely revamped their pricing. The $24/month Starter package they’re offering now is a much more reasonable option, especially for people who are relatively new to the world of SEO.

    Keyword.com’s Revamped Pricing

    If you need to track more than 1,500 keywords, you can “estimate your own plan,” with prices ranging from $24 for 100 keywords to $876 for 15,000 keywords. For anything above 15,000 you would have to get in touch with the company to get a custom quote. 

    Apart from the different prices, one notable difference between the old and new approach is the fact that Keyword.com opted to remove the free trial option. Whereas you previously had a risk-free period of seven days to check out the tool before making a commitment, the only way to see the tool in action now would be to purchase a monthly subscription.

    The company does claim to offer a 14-day money-back guarantee, stating that they’ll give you a full refund if you’re not 100% satisfied with the software during the initial two weeks. 

    Here’s a quick overview of Keyword.com before we move on to the rank tracker’s features:

    Keyword.com (SerpBook) Overview
    Monthly cost From $24/month
    Number of keywords From 100 keywords
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 3,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.008
    Year funded 2011
    Number of employees 11–50 (only one on LinkedIn)
    Facebook followers 244
    Twitter followers 223

    Keyword.com (SerpBook) Features

    When it comes to functionality, Keyword.com doesn’t offer any features that would make it stand out from any other tracker on the market. The tool does however cover the basic rank tracking and reporting capabilities. 

    Here are the features Keywrod.com offers:

    1. Search engine and location support
    2. Check frequency
    3. Group management
    4. Alerts
    5. Reports
    6. Team access
    7. White labeling

    Search Engine and Location Support

    Keyword.com allows you to check your rankings for Google, Bing, and Yahoo. When creating a new project, you can choose to track your rankings for both desktop and mobile searches. 

    Keyword.com also gives you the opportunity to filter the results by location, which is quite handy if you’re targeting a specific market. You can enter a region (country) and even type in a city or postal code if you want to see the rankings for a particular geographic area. 

    Check Frequency

    There is no option to change the check frequency of Keyword.com. The checks are performed automatically, once a day. That said, you can request manual, on-demand keyword updates from the tool’s dashboard. 

    The number of on-demand daily updates matches the number of keyword searches in different pricing plans, meaning you can refresh your keywords once a day to see their up-to-date rankings. 

    Alerts

    Keyword.com has an alert feature that will notify you each time there’s a significant change in your rankings — whether a keyword drops or rises in rank. The live notifications are an excellent way to keep track of how your rankings change in real-time, rather than having to wait for the daily updates.

    You can also configure the conditions for the alerts — for example, a change by ten places — and have the tool send you an email with a quick overview of the changes every time those conditions are met. 

    Reports

    The tool has a simple reporting feature, allowing you to create and export reports as PDF and Excel files. You can organize the report by the current rank, rank change, the number of backlinks, and search volume.

    Keyword.com also supports white-labeling, so you can customize the reports to add your logo, company name, and watermark. 

    Team Access

    The “Team Access” feature is excellent for agencies doing SEO for a variety of clients. This feature enables you to add new users to your account and give your clients or other team members easy access to the keyword ranking information.

    To add new users, all you need to do is insert their email. They’ll receive a message from the tool in their inbox, and once they click the link, they’ll be able to view the projects you give them access to.

    Apart from selecting which projects they’ll have access to, you can assign one of the following roles to other users:

    1. View only
    2. Add-on user
    3. Admin access

    Overall, Keyword.com is fast and accurate, and it does cover all the basics regarding tracking your keywords. That said, it doesn’t offer anything out of the ordinary.

    How to Automate Your Keyword Research and Tracking Before Using Keyword.com (SerpBook)

    Keyword research, the way it’s mostly done nowadays, is broken.

    1. It requires a high level of skill and experience, meaning it can only be done by an SEO expert
    2. Most people manually research and track keywords, which takes a lot of time and effort
    3. Everyone’s giving advice based on their intuition, but nobody is using data to do keyword research
    4. It’s difficult, if not outright impossible to delegate quality keyword research to junior SEOs
    5. You get inconsistent deliverables between different team members

    We weren’t willing to accept the state keyword research was in. Instead of making peace with it being a guessing game, we came up with a way to keyword research into an exact science.

    We developed ClusterAi as a way to automate keyword research for our agency and have our SEO decision based on real-time data from Google. ClusterAi has since become a core piece of our workflow, and we’ve used it to rank on the first page of Google for over 100,000 keywords.

    With ClusterAi, you can take a data-driven approach to keyword research. Plus, the entire process is completely automated, meaning anyone can do expert-level keyword research in minutes, regardless of their SEO knowledge and experience. 

    • ClusterAi scrapes data from Google, allowing you to do keyword research based on facts instead of your gut feeling
    • The tool performs weeks-worth of keyword research almost instantly, saving you valuable time 
    • With ClusterAi, anyone can do high-quality keyword research since the tool does all the heavy lifting for you
    • ClusterAi lets you import thousands of keywords and groups them into unique content topics based around the main keyword and its variations
    • It shows you exactly what keywords you can rank for with each page

    How We Use ClusterAi with Ahrefs to Get 1,000+ Unique Content Topics in Minutes

    To show you just how big of an impact ClusterAi can have on your SEO campaign, here’s an example of the tool in action.

    Let’s pretend we’re starting an affiliate website in the pet niche, and we want to create content that revolves around dog food. In order to attract a large amount of organic traffic, we need to make sure that our content ranks for all the various keyword variations that include “dog food.” 

    To do so, we’ll fire up Ahrefs and navigate to its Keywords Explorer. We need to use the ‘Have the same search term’ to look up search queries that include both terms — “dog” and “food.”

    Ahrefs returns over 450,000 variations that include the two terms. We can export the top 25,000 based on volume and import them into ClusterAi. 

    ClusterAi scrapes the first ten results on Google and looks for keywords on our list that have three or more URLs in common. Then, it automatically groups all keywords from our list into unique content topics. 

    In just minutes, we get a comprehensive list of keywords, showing us data by:

    • Main keyword — the core keyword the topic revolves around
    • Search volume — total search volume across all keywords in the group
    • Variations — all keyword variations that can rank together with the main keyword

    That’s literally it. In less than 15 minutes, you can get 1,000+ unique content topics. Everything’s based on data from Google, so your keyword research will be perfect every time.

    ClusterAi removes uncertainty from keyword research and allows you to delegate the task to anyone, regardless of their SEO experience. It doesn’t get easier or more data-driven than this! 

    Did You Find This Article on the First Page of Google? 

    Thanks to ClusterAi, we generated over 100,000 first-page keywords across our projects. And we did it all without building backlinks or doing any complicated technical BS.

RankWatch Review: Everything You Need To Know

  1. RankWatch Review & Alternatives — Does This “All-In-One” SEO Tool Live Up to Its Promises

    Doing effective Search Engine Optimization (SEO) takes a lot of time and effort. If you’re relying on a bunch of free online tools, your data will be dispersed, and you’ll struggle to see the big picture and improve the effectiveness of your SEO campaign. 

    Thankfully, there are dozens of premium online tools that can provide you with the data you need to assess the effectiveness of your SEO and tweak your campaigns to improve your rankings. 

    We’ve reviewed over 35 of the best rank trackers on

    • Speed
    • Accuracy
    • Check frequency
    • Search engine support
    • Location support
    • And other features

    This way, you’ll see exactly what each of the most popular rank trackers offers, so you can choose the one that best fits your needs. 

    RankWatch stands out among them as a tool that offers a bit more than just keyword tracking. It provides additional data regarding your backlinks, competitors, and hidden opportunities, which can help you improve your website’s ranking.

    Why You Should Listen to Us About RankWatch

    We understand SEO, and we know how Google actually works, so we know exactly what to look for in a rank tracker. 

    Last year, we did SEO for three different projects and managed to take them from virtually no organic traffic to over 100,000 visitors per month.

    About RankWatch

    RankWatch is more than just a rank tracker. It’s an SEO tool that provides you with all the necessary data you need to improve your website’s SEO performance and generate tons of organic traffic. At least that’s what RankWatch promises on its homepage. 

    We understand why they opted for the “all-in-one SEO tool” marketing pitch, but we would be hesitant to recommend it to experienced SEO professionals who are looking for more advanced functionalities on top of keyword tracking.

    If you’re looking for a way to check how your website ranks on Google quickly and accurately, then RankWatch might be a decent option. 

    The tool does come with a 14-day free trial, so you can test out its features before making a commitment. 

    To get started, enter your email address and click the “Try For Free” button.

    RankWatch Homepage

    RankWatch doesn’t ask for credit card information to start the free trial, so there’s no fear of being charged automatically after the 14-day period. It does require you to input your phone number, but you can add an auto-generated one if you aren’t too keen on receiving promotional text messages from the company. 

    When you click the confirmation link in the email, you’ll be redirected to a page where you can set up the tool and start tracking.

    RankWatch Setup

    While RankWatch appears bare-bones before you set up a project, you won’t be overwhelmed, and it will only take a few minutes to get started. Simply add your domain and project name, select the search engine you wish to track the rankings for, and you’re all set.

    There’s also an option to select the country if you want to see rankings for a specific market. The tool also enables sub-domain tracking by default, meaning that it checks every single page under the domain you entered. You can also select city-based tracking, as well as have RankWatch prioritize local over organic ranking.

    Once you add the search engines and location you want to track rankings for, the tool will prompt you to add the keywords. 

    The great thing about RankWatch is the fact that it allows you to add keywords in bulk, as well as to import them from Google Analytics and Google Webmasters or via CSV.

    Adding Keywords in RankWatch

    Another awesome thing about RankWatch is that it doesn’t limit you in any way during the free trial. Most other rank trackers allow you to track only a handful of words and mess around with the most basic features. With RankWatch, you’ll have access to all of the tool’s features and can track up to 250 keywords with the free plan.

    RankWatch Pricing

    When it comes to paid plans, RankWatch isn’t the most affordable rank tracker out there, but it isn’t the most expensive option either.

    The cheapest monthly plan is $29, but it limits you to only 250 keywords. This might be a decent option for bloggers who want to check the rankings for a few dozen of their posts. Even then, you are likely to reach the limit pretty quickly, given the fact that desktop and mobile searches, as well as different search engines, count towards the 250 monthly keywords separately. 

    The much more realistic option is 1,500 monthly keywords for $99. This plan also includes a white label license — letting you add your logo and customize the reports — as well as an hour-long training session on how to effectively use RankWatch.

    RankWatch Pricing

    Alternatively, you can choose the custom plan and select the number of keywords you believe you’ll need to track. Comparatively, you’ll get fewer keywords for your money that way, but the gap between L and XL plans is 6,000 keywords, pretty much forcing you to go for this option if the 1,500 keyword limit doesn’t meet your needs.

    There’s also an option to pay monthly, every six months, or annually. You’ll save about $10 – $15 if you choose these payment options, depending on the plan.

    Here’s a quick overview of RankWatch, before we take a look at the tool’s features:

    RankWatch Overview

    Monthly cost From  $29 to $5,987
    Number of keywords From 250 to 1,000,000 
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 7,500 – 30,000,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0022
    Year funded 2010
    g2 reviews 4.3 stars
    Capterra reviews 4.1 stars
    Number of employees 51–200
    Facebook followers 3,552
    Twitter followers 3,703

    RankWatch Features

    As we mentioned, RankWatch provides a lot more data on top of keyword rankings. With this tool, you can also check your backlinks, get an overview of your website’s performance, find new keywords you can rank for, and get insight into who your competitors are for specific keywords and how they’re ranking. 

    The main features of RankWatch include:

    1. Ranking overview
    2. Search engine and device support
    3. Keyword overview
    4. Location support
    5. Link center
    6. Site auditor
    7. Competitors
    8. Hidden opportunity
    9. Reports
    10. Keyword research

    Ranking Overview

    The ranking overview is the heart and soul of RankWatch. This feature shows you how you rank for the keywords you added to the project and provides you with a wealth of data related to your rankings. 

    The data is visually presented through charts, graphs, and lists, so you can easily find the information you’re looking for. 

    RankWatch gives you the option to sort the results by:

    1. Value
    2. Change
    3. Snippet

    Apart from the current ranking, you’ll also see initial rank, highest rank, and search volume for each keyword on your list.

    RankWatch Ranking Overview

    What’s interesting is that RankWatch also shows you the page score for the sub-domains associated with every keyword. This is an excellent feature since it gives you additional insight into why your pages might be ranking lower than you expect them to.

    RankWatch PageScore

    With this feature, RankWatch shows you exactly what you did right, what things you need to fix on the page, and which areas you can improve upon. These quick tweaks can help you improve your rankings further, helping you get on the first page of Google. 

    One thing worth mentioning is that RankWatch doesn’t offer any options regarding check frequency. The checks are performed automatically every 24 hours, meaning you can’t immediately see the effect of any changes you make on your pages. 

    Search Engine and Device Support

    Any good rank tracker should support multiple search engines and allow you to check the rankings on both desktop and mobile. RankWatch has you covered on this front.

    RankWatch Search Engine and Device Support

    RankWatch supports the following search engines:

    • Google
    • Google Maps
    • Yahoo
    • Bing
    • Baidu
    • Yandex
    • Seznam
    • Naver

    When creating a project, you can select which search engine you want to check the rankings for, and you can add as many as you like. 

    Keep in mind that you’re selecting both the search engine and the device from the same drop-down menu. If you want to check your Google rankings for both mobile and desktop, you’ll need to add Google and Google Mobile separately.

    You can always edit the project later on if you want to add or remove a search engine. 

    Keyword Overview

    This feature simply lets you see the data for a specific keyword — its position, search volume, changes, and URL

    Although not ground-breaking by any means, RankWatch’s Keyword Overview lets you inspect each keyword individually, which may be useful if you’re tracking dozens of keywords and find it difficult to find the data for a specific keyword from the dashboard. 

    Location Support

    When it comes to location support, RankWatch lets you narrow down your search by country and even by city. 

    Simply enable the “City Based Tracking” option when creating or editing a project, and select the country and city you want to see the rankings for.

    RankWatch Location Support

    Link Center

    In RankWatch’s Link Center, you can see an in-depth view of your backlinks. The tool shows you a variety of factors that impact the strength of your link profile and even allows you to analyze your competitor’s backlinks.

    RankWatch Link Center

    When you upgrade to a paid plan, you’ll also see your top landing pages and the total number of links for each page. RankWatch also shows you who is linking to your website and what anchors they’re using.

    Site Auditor

    RankWatch’s Site Auditor is an excellent way to get an overview of your website’s SEO performance in minutes. The tool crawls your website and checks it against a variety of important SEO factors, like:

    • On-page SEO — How well your website meets the best search engine optimization practices
    • Site’s speed — How fast the pages on your website load
    • Mobile responsiveness — Does your site have a mobile-responsive design
    • Social — How many fans and followers your site has

    RankWatch Site Auditor

    To get started with the Site Auditor, select your site’s URL configuration, the number of pages to be crawled, and how often you want RankWatch to crawl it. 

    Once you set the parameters, the tool will notify you via email when it finishes crawling your website and provide you with a detailed report. 

    Competitors

    When you’re trying to gauge the effectiveness of your SEO campaign, it’s always good to know how your website fares against your competitors. RankWatch’s “Competitors” feature automatically pulls the top five highest-ranked competitors, based on the keywords you added to the project.

    RankWatch Organic Competitors

    The tool simply shows you the number of keywords in the top ten for your website and your competitors (three out of five in the image above). RankWatch does give some additional information regarding average rank, desktop speed, and backlinks, but it doesn’t show you the competitors’ top-ranking pages. 

    Hidden Opportunity

    The “hidden opportunity” feature of RankWatch is an interesting take on keyword suggestions. 

    What this feature does is list out 50 keywords that are seemingly related to the ones you added in the project, and shows you their position, cost per click (CPC), and monthly search volumes. It also lets you add them to your list of tracked keywords directly from this page.

    RankWatch Hidden Opportunity 

    In our honest opinion, there are far better ways to figure out what keywords you should rank for and track. 

    Reports

    RankWatch has a pretty basic reporting feature, allowing you to generate a report for your projects and download it as a PDF or Excel file.

    RankWatch Report

    There isn’t a ton of customization available with RankWatch’s reporting feature. You can only choose between two options when it comes to how the data will be displayed within the report:

    • By website position
    • By page number

    Apart from that, you can select a custom date range for the report, and that’s pretty much it.

    There is no option to schedule the reports, and you can’t email them to clients from the tool. Instead, you’d have to download the report and send it manually, which is an oversight on the company’s part, in our opinion. 

    RankWatch also pitches its “100% white labeling feature,” which allows you to add your logo to the report and change the colors. 

    Keyword Research

    While RankWatch provides a keyword research feature, it isn’t exactly a strong professional process. The tool can list out keywords that are related to the phrase you enter and provides search volumes, cost per click, and information regarding the competition. 

    That said, it takes a while to load and the tool doesn’t allow you to export the keywords. The fact of the matter is that free tools such as Google Keyword Planner are faster and provide a lot more information than RankWatch — a paid rank tracker — does.  

    RankWatch Alternatives

    Despite the fact that RankWatch has been around for a decade, some of the features seem unpolished, and several key functionalities — like check frequency and report scheduling — are missing. 

    There’s also the fact that the tool can be a bit slow at times. If you’re looking for a faster or a more affordable rank tracker, check out RankWatch alternatives here

    Automate Keyword Research Before Using RankWatch or Any Other Rank Tracker

    The way most people do keyword research is fundamentally flawed. 

    1. Everyone relies on intuition and their “gut feeling” 
    2. Nobody uses data to do keyword research
    3. Manually researching keywords can take weeks
    4. High-level keyword research can typically only be done by experienced SEOs with a high level of skill
    5. It’s difficult to delegate the task to junior SEOs
    6. Deliverables are inconsistent from one person to another

    At contentdistribution.com, we take a different, data-driven approach. With ClusterAi, we turn keyword research from an unpredictable art to an exact science. 

    1. ClusterAi takes data directly from Google, ensuring that your keyword research is based on accurate, relevant, up-to-date information, rather than on what “feels right” 
    2. This eliminates any uncertainty, allowing anyone to do expert-level keyword research, even if they have absolutely no previous SEO experience
    3. The entire process is fully automated, and you’ll get a comprehensive list of keywords in minutes, instead of weeks
    4. The data is sorted by the main keywords and their variations, so you’ll know exactly what keywords to rank for with each page

    How We Use ClusterAi with Ahrefs to Generate 1,000+ Unique Content Topics in Minutes

    Let us give you an example to show you how easy it is to perform high-quality keyword research with ClusterAi

    Let’s pretend we’re running a project in the pet niche. The topic we want to cover is dog food, so we need to find keywords that include this search term. 

    1. We’ll open up Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and type in “dog” 
    2. Then, we’ll select the “Having same terms” feature and include “food”

    The tool shows us over 455,000 results for search queries that include “dog + food.”

    What we can do is export the top 25,000 keywords, based on their search volume. Now, we just need to import those keywords into ClusterAi and let the tool work its magic. 

    Here’s a quick explanation of how ClusterAi works:

    1. It scrapes the top ten results on Google for each of the 25,000 keywords
    2. It automatically compares all keywords on the list against each other
    3. It looks for keywords that share three or more URLs
    4. It clusters those keywords together to create unique content topics

    The process only takes several minutes, and you’ll have a list of over 1,000 unique topics you can create content around. The data in the list is shown by:

    • Main keyword 
    • Total search volume 
    • Variations 

    This is as data-driven as it gets! You’ll know what topics to cover and exactly what keywords you can rank for together to generate the most organic traffic.

    Click on any cell in the list above to expand it and see the full list of keyword variations.

    That’s literally it. In just minutes, you get a comprehensive list of keywords and their variations, based on raw data from Google. This means that anyone can do perfect keyword research in minutes, every single time, regardless of their experience. 

    Did You Find Our RankWatch Review on the First Page of Google?

    With ClusterAi and our proven processes, we consistently rank high on Google. Across our projects, we have nearly 100,000 first page keywords. And the best part is — we did it without building backlinks or doing other technical BS.

Nightwatch Review: Worth The Hype?

  1. Nightwatch Reviews & Alternatives — A Robust Tool for Experienced SEOs

    Nightwatch is a cloud-based rank tracker that provides accurate, up-to-date information regarding your site’s SEO performance. Apart from keyword tracking, the tool also supports backlink monitoring and site audits, giving you invaluable insights that can help you improve the effectiveness of your SEO campaigns. 

    The wealth of data Nightwatch gathers makes it an appealing option for SEO professionals, marketers, and agencies with a decent marketing budget that want to track a large number of keywords. The tool also integrates with Google Analytics and Search Console and allows you to discover and monitor the performance of your competitors for the desired keywords.

    That said, the variety of options available within Nightwatch and the sheer amount of data it gathers, alongside the limitations associated with the “Personal” accounts, make the tool a bit less enticing for individuals — affiliates, bloggers, and SEOs with limited experience. 

    If you’re looking for a simple rank tracker or a more budget-friendly option, there are quite a few alternatives to Nightwatch.

    We reviewed over 35+ of the best rank trackers based on accuracy, speed, check frequency, search engine and device support, and other important features.

    Click here to see how Nightwatch compares to the competition.

    Why You Should Listen to Us About Nightwatch 

    We understand how Google actually works and know the ins and outs of SEO — and we have the data to prove it. 

    In the last year alone, we took three different projects from virtually no organic search traffic to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors.

    See how we took Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours watched on YouTube in 2019.

    We’re not just sharing our opinion on what we “believe” works or trying to pitch you a specific tool. Instead, we’ll give you a detailed, unbiased review of Nightwatch, so you can make an informed decision and determine whether the tool meets the needs of your business. 

    About Nightwatch

    Nightwatch is an SEO tracker designed to help you monitor, assess, and improve the performance of your SEO campaigns

    At its core, the tool is a keyword rank tracker, but it does offer other valuable features like backlink monitoring and website audit. 

    The search data Nightwatch gathers can be segmented, and it’s presented through lists and color-coded graphs and charts. This means that, while the tool presents a wealth of information regarding your SEO, you won’t ever feel overwhelmed. 

    The tool’s filtering functionality allows you to create dynamic keyword lists, allowing you to see which keywords meet specific criteria. You can filter the lists by position, language, location, search volume, etc. Although a relatively simple function, the dynamic filters are an excellent way to sort the data and are especially useful for people doing SEO for a number of different clients. 

    Put simply, Nightwatch enables you to manage high volumes of keywords efficiently and adjust the displayed data to suit your SEO needs. 

    Nightwatch offers a free trial option, so you can check the tool out without any commitment. Simply click the “Start Free Trial” button from the tool’s homepage and enter your email address and password. 

    Nightwatch Free Trial

    The free trial signup is a two-step process. After entering your email address and password, the tool will ask you to input information regarding your company size, but it doesn’t pry any further.

    Once you create your account and confirm your email address, the tool will prompt you to add a website and start tracking. 

    What we recommend doing instead is checking out their video tutorials. You can access them from the top-right corner of the dashboard. There are 19 short videos in total that will introduce you to the tool and explain how its features work. 

    Nightwatch Video Tutorials

    Going through all of them takes about 20 minutes, so we definitely recommend checking them out and familiarizing yourself with the tool before you create your first campaign in Nightwatch. 

    One thing to keep in mind that there are some limitations to the free trial account: 

    • You can track up to 100 keywords
    • You can check up to 20 URLs
    • Backlink monitoring and site audit are disabled

    To access some of the advanced features Nightwatch offers, you will need to upgrade to the Business Account. 

    Nightwatch offers three different account types:

    • Personal
    • Business
    • Agency

    Personal accounts increase the number of keywords you can track and backlinks you can monitor, but you’ll still be locked out of site audits and data integration and will be able to generate a limited number of reports.

    With a Business account, you’ll have access to all of Nightwatch’s features. The trouble is, you can still track only 1,000 keywords at $99/month.

    Nightwatch Pricing

    If you opt for the annual plan, you’ll save 20%, but even then, Nightwatch is a bit pricier than its competitors

    We need to take a closer look at Nightwatch’s features to see if the tool’s functionality justifies the price. Before we do, here’s a quick overview of Nightwatch:

    Nightwatch Overview

    Monthly cost From $19/month to $699/month
    Number of keywords From 100 to 10,000 depending on the plan
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 3,000 – 300,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0033
    Year funded 2016
    Number of employees 10 – 20
    Capterra reviews 4.9/5 stars
    g2 reviews 4.8/5 stars
    Facebook followers 3,097
    Twitter followers 1,919

    The overabundance of positive reviews hints at the fact that Nightwatch is a truly amazing rank tracker. Let’s see exactly what this tool can do.

    Nightwatch Features 

    Nightwatch is more than just a rank tracker. It’s a robust SEO tool that helps you improve the efficiency of your SEO campaigns on all fronts. 

    The key features Nightwatch provides are:

    1. Search engine, location, and device support
    2. Check frequency
    3. Backlink monitoring
    4. Reporting 
    5. Site Audit
    6. Competitor tracking
    7. White-labeling

    Search Engine, Location, and Device Support

    Every decent rank tracker should allow you to check your rankings on multiple search engines, not just Google. Apart from the world’s #1 search engine, Nightwatch also supports Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, and YouTube.

    While the tool does not cater to the Chinese and Russian markets (no support for Baidu or Yandex), it’s great that it provides the ability to track your rankings for YouTube searches. Many businesses rely on videos, so having a comprehensive overview of how your YouTube channel is doing and where your videos show up in YouTube search is definitely a plus.

    When it comes to location support, Nightwatch allows you to select the country and language you want to see results for. You can also narrow down your search to show only the results for a specific city, region, or district, which is a must-have option for local businesses that target a specific geographic market. 

    Nightwatch Campaign Creation

    Nightwatch also lets you choose whether you want to track keywords for desktop, mobile, or both. Keep in mind that, if you select both desktop and mobile, the tool counts this as two keywords towards your total keyword limit.

    Check Frequency

    Unfortunately, there is no option to adjust the check frequency in Nightwatch, and you can’t refresh the keywords manually. The tool will update the rankings of your tracked keywords daily.

    As far as backlinks go, Nightwatch will check for new backlinks and add them to the list once every three days.

    Backlink Monitoring

    Nightwatch provides a backlink monitoring tool that allows you to track your backlinks with ease and get an overview of the strength of your backlink profile in seconds. 

    The tool’s backlink dashboard shows you the number of backlinks, what pages they’re linking to, and each backlink’s status and quality.

    Nightwatch Backlink Monitoring

    Image credit: Nightwatch

    The backlink monitoring feature also includes automatic notifications. Whenever a new backlink is discovered, or an existing backlink is lost, the tool will let you know. Nightwatch relies on its crawlers and multiple external tracking sources to ensure the backlink data it shows is accurate and up-to-date.

    Reporting 

    The reporting feature of Nightwatch is excellent. 

    The tool allows you to generate three types of reports:

    • Basic report — a comprehensive overview of the keywords you’re tracking
    • Progress report — a report that focuses on changes in your rankings
    • Competitor report — a report that compares your site’s performance against your competitors

    There are literally hundreds of options to choose from when it comes to how you want the data in the report to be presented. You can choose to have the columns show anything from current rank, change, and search volume to daily clicks, clickthrough rate (CTR), and the average cost per click (CPC). 

    Nightwatch Reports

    The reports can be exported as PDF, CSV, or HTML files, and you can schedule them and even add your own logo (the white-labeling option is available in Business and Agency plans).

    Site Audit

    The Nightwatch Site Audit is an excellent way to get insights regarding your website’s health and overall SEO performance. Nightwatch displays the site’s health as a percentage on a scale from 0 to 100 — the closer you are to 100%, the better.

    As with all other features of the tool, you can select from a variety of filters to have Nightwatch display the data you’re most interested in. You can also navigate to the “Audit Checks” menu, which shows you exactly which problems your website is facing. 

    Nightwatch Audit Checks

    Click on any of the SEO issues, and the tool will list out all the pages that share the problem. You can also choose a specific SEO issue from the drop-down menu to see all the pages that meet certain criteria (e.g., Response Code >= 400 to see all pages that show error 404). 

    This is a great way for experienced SEOs to assess the overall performance of theirs or their clients’ sites, but the tool doesn’t provide suggestions on how to fix the problems. 

    This is another example of the fact that Nightwatch doesn’t exactly cater to people with limited or no previous SEO experience. 

    If you’re new to SEO, we recommend checking out some of the Nightwatch alternatives

    Competitor Tracking

    When you first go to create the campaign, one of the steps will feature a form that requires you to add competitors you wish to check your rankings against. 

    The tool discovers a few competitors automatically, but you can also remove them and add new competitors manually if you want. 

    Nightwatch Competitors

    You can always add or remove competitors later down the line by navigating to Settings and choosing the Competitors option.

    When you add the competitors, Nightwatch will check immediately how each of them ranks for the keywords you’re tracking and provide you with a graph that shows the data regarding the average position of each website.

    Nightwatch Competitor Graph

    You can also add new “Dimensions” to the graph to see even more information. 

    Some of the dimensions you can add are:

    • Search visibility index
    • Click potential
    • Total keywords
    • Keyword distribution
    • Clicks
    • Impressions
    • Clickthrough rate (CTR)
    • Domain authority
    • URL rating

    This feature offers much more than simple competitor tracking. It can provide you with valuable insights regarding your own site and show you the effectiveness of your SEO efforts across a variety of different parameters.

    How We Automate Keyword Research Before Using Nightwatch

    Nightwatch is, without a doubt, an excellent SEO tool. 

    That said, the insights Nightwatch can provide are only valuable once you know exactly what keywords to track. In order to figure that out, you first need to perform high-quality keyword research. 

    The problem is, the way most people do keyword research is fundamentally flawed. 

    • Doing high-quality keyword research requires skill and experience 
    • Researching keywords manually can take weeks, if not months
    • Most people base their keyword research on intuition, yet nobody is using data to make keyword decisions
    • It’s virtually impossible to delegate expert-level keyword research to junior SEOs
    • Deliverables are inconsistent from one person to another

    The approach we advocate relies on raw data to ensure that your keyword research is perfect every time.

    Here’s why keyword research with ClusterAi is superior to manual keyword research:

    1. ClusterAi pulls data directly from Google, turning keyword research from a guessing game into an exact science
    2. It eliminates the potential for human error from the process and automates weeks-worth of work, saving you a ton of valuable time
    3. ClusterAi does all the heavy lifting, meaning anyone can do high-quality keyword research, even if they have no prior SEO experience
    4. The tool clusters keywords together to creates unique content topics, showing you exactly which keywords you can rank for with a single page 

    How to Do Perfect Keyword Research Every Time

    We understand that “perfect keyword research without any SEO experience” sounds almost too good to be true. That’s why we’ll give you a real-world example to show you exactly how ClusterAi makes this possible.

    Say we wanted to start an affiliate website in the pet niche that focuses on different dog breeds and dog food. 

    1. To get started, we’ll fire up the Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and search for the term “dog”
    2. Then, we’ll select the “Having same terms” feature

    Ahrefs will return over ten million different queries that contain the word “dog.” 

    To narrow this down and focus on a more specific topic, we’ll include the term “food.”  

    Now, the tool will provide us with a list of 455,000 variations.

    We can go ahead and export the 25,000 keyword variations with the highest search volume.

    Then, we’ll just import that list into ClusterAi and let the tool work its “magic.” 

    1. ClusterAi scrapes the top ten results on Google for every keyword on the list
    2. It compares all 25,000 keywords against each other
    3. ClusterAi then looks for keywords that share three or more URLs
    4. It groups the ones that meet the criteria into unique content topics, based on the main keyword and its variations 

    Within minutes, the tool puts together a list of over 1,000 unique content topics. 

    The data is shown by:

    • Main keyword 
    • Total search volume across all variations in a group
    • The variations that can rank with the main keyword

    You can click any cell to expand it and see the full list of variations.

    That’s weeks-worth of keyword research that you can do in an instant. And since it’s all based on data pulled directly from Google, it’s perfect every time. 

    The process is completely automated, meaning anyone can do high-quality keyword research in minutes, even if they have absolutely no SEO experience.

    Did You Find This Nightwatch Review on the First Page of Google?

    With ClusterAi, we managed to rank on the first page of Google for over 100,000 different keywords, across our projects. And we did it without building backlinks or doing any complicated technical SEO.

    Doggypedia.org (Publisher)

    See how we took Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours watched on YouTube in 2019.

    We’re not giving you advice based on what we “think” works. When it comes to SEO, every piece of information we share is based on data and real-world results.

    Let’s take a look at SERPWoo and go over this rank tracker’s features to see how well it can meet the needs of your business.

    About SERPWoo

    SERPWoo is a powerful yet fairly straightforward keyword rank tracking and online reputation tracking (ORM) tool. 

    What differentiates SERPWoo from its competitors is the fact that it provides a wealth of information beyond just URL rankings. 

    The tool enables you to perform a comprehensive Search Engine Results Page (SERP) analysis for over 20 highest-ranked results associated with any given keyword.

    SERPWoo Homepage

    From the homepage, you’ll have the options to either:

    • Watch the “Live Demo”
    • Sign up for SERPWoo and start using the tool right away

    The “Live Demo” isn’t what you would expect it to be. 

    Rather than a video guide explaining how the tool works and providing a step-by-step guide on how to get started, the demo is a series of screenshots offering a brief explanation of SERPWoo’s main features.

    The company does provide a series of video tutorials that you can check out on SERPWoo’s YouTube channel. 

    After going through the screenshots, you’ll have access to the demo account the company set up. 

    You can see several projects that SERPWoo created for the demo and try out the tool’s different features, without having to create an account.

    SERPWoo Demo Account Dashboard

    By default, SERPWoo’s dashboard will list out your “Top Projects” and “Top Keywords.” 

    If you scroll down, you’ll also see a quick overview of the “Gains” and “Losses” for the keywords you added to your projects.

    SERPWoo Gains and Losses

    You can sort this view quickly by selecting:

    1. Project — Which project you want to view rankings for
    2. Date — From yesterday up to the past 90 days
    3. Tag — Negative tags, neutral tags, positive tags, and no value tags
    4. Limit — How many keywords you want the tool to display (10 – 1,000)

    The sheer amount of data displayed on the homepage for the demo account can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you’ve never used a rank tracker before. 

    That’s why we suggest creating a free account and following the simple steps SERPWoo provides to create your first project. 

    What’s interesting about SERPWoo is that it doesn’t have a free trial per se. Instead, you need to create a “free plan” account that you can choose to upgrade at any time to access the tool’s premium features. 

    And you will need to do so since the free plan locks you out of nearly every feature and limits you to tracking only three keywords.

    SERPWoo’s free plan

    Once you click the “Upgrade My Plan” button, you’ll be redirected to a page that features the tool’s pricing and subscription features, depending on the plan you choose. 

    The lowest-tier paid plan is Bronze, which starts at $49.95/month for 750 keywords. The plans go up to “Agency 4” at $300,000/month for one million keywords.

    There’s a ton of flexibility between the different paid plans, but SERPWoo is among the high-priced rank trackers. 

    What’s also worth noting is that the Bronze plan doesn’t include mobile tracking. Realistically, you’d have to go for Silver, at the very least, which is $99.95/month. 

    Here’s a quick overview of SERPWoo:

    SERPWoo Overview

    Monthly cost From $49.95/month to $300,000/month
    Number of keywords From 750 to 1,000,000 keywords, depending on the plan
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 22,500 – 30,000,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0022
    Year funded 2012
    g2 reviews 5 stars (2 reviews)
    Number of employees 1–10
    Facebook followers 346
    Twitter followers 975

    Let’s go over SERPWoo’s main features to see if this rank tracker is worth the price.

    SERPWoo Features

    SEPRWoo has a myriad of features that allow you to fully customize the keyword tracking process. 

    While this makes it an excellent option for SEO professionals and people with significant SEO experience, we wouldn’t recommend it if you haven’t used rank trackers in the past.  

    The key features of SERPWoo are:

    1. SERP analysis
    2. Locality
    3. Language
    4. Search Engine support
    5. Alerts
    6. Reports
    7. Monitoring
    8. Keyword finder

    SERP Analysis

    SERPWoo performs a deep analysis of the Search Results Page and presents the information in an easy-to-understand manner — through lists, graphs, and pie charts. 

    When you click on one of your projects from the dashboard, you’ll be provided with a quick overview of your site’s performance, including changes in position and a color-coded graph showing an aggregated view of the rankings for your domain or URL.

    SERPWOO Demo Account Rankings for the “Online Marketing” Project

    Once you click on any of the fields above — for instance, “KW Rising” — you will see a list of keywords for which your domains/URLs have increased in rank. Apart from the domain/URL and the keywords themselves, you’ll see the monthly search volume for each of the keywords and ranking changes of your website(s) in the past 90 days.

    SERPWoo KW Rising Overview

    Don’t be confused by the fact that “SEO” is listed twice in the keyword column. Notice that two different domains have experienced growth for this keyword. 

    SERPWoo merely added multiple websites to their “online marketing” project. This can be a great way to keep track of how your competitors are ranking for the same keywords you want to rank for. You can simply add their domains in a project, and get real-time data on how you fare against your competitors. 

    You can also always choose to list a single domain or URL in a project, to have easier access to the rankings for that particular website or page. This will eliminate the confusion and allow you to easily assess the effectiveness of your SEO effort on a project-to-project basis.

    Keep in mind that SEPRWoo limits the number of keywords you can track. How you organize the projects comes down to personal preference and the needs of your business, so you can go for either approach or mix it up between different projects.

    Locality

    Once you upgrade to a premium plan, you’ll have access to advanced features, such as “locality.” 

    This allows you to narrow down the search results to a specific geographic region, which is a must-have feature for businesses targeting a specific market.

    SERPWoo allows you to either type in the location or click the button and select the desired region you want to check rankings for, using Google Maps.

    Language

    SERPWoo lets you choose between 71 different languages you wish to track your rankings for. 

    Simply select the regions (languages) you would like to track the rankings for when creating a new project. You can always change this from the “Settings” later if you want to add or remove languages.

    Search Engine Support

    You’ve probably noticed there’s fine print in the image above. Here’s what it says:

    One of the main features a rank tracker should have is Search Engine Support. This is where SERPWoo falls short since the tool can only monitor the results for Google. 

    If you need insights from other search engines or YouTube, you will have to look for a SERPWoo alternative

    Alerts

    SERPWoo has an “Alerts” feature that basically functions like notifications inside their cloud-based platform. 

    Whenever a ranking of one of your domains/URL changes, across any of your projects, the tool will let you know.

    This is a pretty hefty feature, in our opinion, since it allows you to review the ranking changes quickly, rather than having to check every project manually each day. 

    You choose for SERPWoo to display the alerts in either “Project” or “Classic” mode. The former will sort the alerts based on projects, while the latter will list them based on the recency of changes. 

    Reports

    The “Report” feature allows you to schedule reports and have the tool email them to up to four different email addresses.

    SERPWoo Reports

    If you’re doing SEO for clients, this is an excellent way to automate the reporting process and regularly provide them with an overview of your efforts. 

    Before sending out the report to clients, you can always send a preview to yourself, to make sure the report includes all the relevant data and looks exactly like you want it to. 

    You can change the colors and logo of the reports, add notes, choose which data will be featured in the reports, and how often SERPWoo will send them out. 

    Monitoring

    The “Monitoring” feature of SERPWoo is tied to the tool’s Online Reputation Management (ORM) capabilities. 

    This feature allows you to monitor all mentions of your brand and selected keywords across the Internet. You can see what people are saying about your business on social media, check out the reviews they leave on portals and forums, see when your business is mentioned in a blog, etc. 

    While not a game-changer by any means, the “Monitoring” feature of SERPWoo can give you a pretty good idea of your brand’s online reputation.

    Keyword Finder

    Apart from rank tracking, SERPWoo helps you identify new opportunities — keywords with high search volumes that you can rank for — through its keyword finder. 

    The tool creates keyword groups based on relevancy, using the seed keyword you provide. It shows monthly search volumes for each keyword in the group, giving you a solid idea about other keywords you can create content around.

    That said, SERPWoo’s keyword finder is more of an add-on than a standalone feature. It doesn’t come anywhere close to the capabilities of keyword research tools like Ahrefs, SEMRush, and Moz. 

    We recommend primarily using SERPWoo for its keyword tracking capabilities, rather than its keyword research feature. 

    Before you make a decision, you can check all the SERP trackers we’ve reviewed

    SerpWatcher $29.90 4.4 100 – 1,200
    Rankedy $29 4.3 100 – 1,000

    How We Do Keyword Research Before Using SERPWoo

    Keyword research is broken. 

    • Performing effective keyword research requires a high level of skill and considerable experience
    • It’s a tedious, manual process that takes a lot of time
    • Most people rely on intuition and their “gut feeling” when doing keyword research
    • Everyone gives opinions on how keyword research should be performed, but nobody is using data to make keyword decisions
    • This makes it borderline impossible for experienced SEO specialists to delegate high-quality research to junior members
    • Deliverables are inconsistent between different team members

    But what if there was a way to turn keyword research from an art to a science? 

    ClusterAi allows you to adopt a data-driven approach and consistently perform expert-level keyword research, even if you have absolutely no previous SEO experience. 

    1. ClusterAi relies on data from Google, allowing you to perform perfect keyword research every single time
    2. It removes human error from the equation and automates weeks-worth of work
    3. It enables everyone to do high-quality keyword research, regardless of previous SEO experience
    4. ClusterAi creates unique content topics around main keywords and their variations, so you’ll know exactly what keyword variations you’ll use on each page, in minutes instead of weeks

    Perfect Keyword Research Every Time

    Let us give you an example to show you how easy it is to nail keyword research every single time with ClusterAi.

    Say we were starting a project in the pet niche. 

    1. We use Ahrefs Keyword Explorer to search for “dog”
    2. Then, we make sure to use the “Having same terms” feature

    This shows us over 10 million different queries that contain the word “dog.”

    This search term is too broad. We want to focus on a more specific topic, say “dog food.”

    Including “food” in the search terms narrows down the list to 455,000 variations.

    What we can do now is export the top 25,000 keyword variations, based on search volume.

    Then, all we need to do is import that list into ClusterAi

    1. ClusterAi then scrapes the first 10 results on Google for all keywords on the list
    2. It compares each keyword against every other keyword
    3. ClusterAi searches for keywords that have three or more URLs in common
    4. Then it clusters the 25,000 keyword variations into unique content topics 

    The data is presented as a list, sorted by:

    • Main keyword
    • Total search volume across all variations in a group

    The variations that can rank with the main keyword

    You can click any cell to expand it and see the full list of variations.

    That’s all there is to it! In minutes, we received a comprehensive list of over 1,000 unique content topics. 

    That’s weeks-worth of keyword research that you can do in an instant. And since it’s all based on data pulled directly from Google, it’s perfect every time. 

    The best part about ClusterAi is — anyone can do expert-level keyword research, even if they don’t know anything about SEO. 

    Did You Find This Article on the First Page of Google?

    About ProRankTracker

    ProRankTracker is an excellent tool that can provide you with a wealth of valuable data regarding your SEO campaigns in an easy-to-understand manner. The tool’s UI is clean and intuitive, and the information is presented through color-coded graphs, charts, and lists. So, despite the wide variety of options available in ProRankTracker, you will never feel overwhelmed. 

    The great thing about ProRankTracker is that you can learn everything about the tool and try it out for free before making a commitment. The tool offers a free seven-day trial plan, with no strings attached — it doesn’t ask for your credit card information.

    ProRankTrackerHomepage

    Most rank trackers have free trials, but they often only give you access to the basic features and limit you to checking a handful of keywords. With ProRankTracker’s free trial, you’ll have access to all of the tool’s features, with two URLs and 20 search terms, so you can test out everything before upgrading to a paid plan.

    Apart from the free trial, you can also book a demo of the tool and see sample reports to get an idea of how the tool works and what information it can provide. 

    When it comes to pricing, the monthly subscription plans ProRankTracker offers are quite reasonable. If 500 keyword searches do the job for you, the $49 starter plan is a great deal, considering you also get to utilize the tool’s on-page SEO capabilities for up to ten sites and 200,000 pages. 

    The plans go up to 100,000 keywords for $3,300, but you can always upgrade/downgrade your plan according to your needs.

    ProRankTracker Pricing

    What’s also worth noting is that you get API access and a dedicated account manager with the business plan. This plan starts from $180/month for 3,000 search terms and is an excellent option for agencies who are doing SEO for multiple clients.

    You can also check out other video tutorials if you want to familiarize yourself with the tool a bit more before you create your first project. 

    When you’re ready, you can get started by clicking on either “Add Wizard” or “Advanced Add.” The former lets you set up your project quickly and start checking your rankings right away, while the advanced option offers a lot more customization options.

    From the “Advanced Add” interface, you can select the search engines you want to track your keyword rankings for, the tracking type, and the location.

    ProRankTracker Advanced Add

    When it comes to tracking type, you can not only choose between desktop and mobile but can also select YouTube Video, as well as Amazon Listing. 

    As far as search engines are concerned, ProRankTracker has you covered on all fronts. The tool supports

    • Google
    • Bing
    • Yahoo!
    • Yandex
    • YouTube
    • Ask
    • DuckDuckGo
    • Seznam
    • Excite
    • Lycos

    You can also choose a specific or nearby location you want to check the rankings for. Simply type in the name of the location — country, state, or city — and select it from the tool’s drop-down menu. You can also set the language of the search if you want to check your rankings for a specific market. 

    The variety of customization options during project creation make ProRankTracker stand out from the competition. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth if you opt for this advanced rank tracker. 

    Check Frequency

    The one thing ProRankTracker is lacking is the option to adjust the check frequency. The tool provides automatic updates for all your terms once per day and does not include a live notification system. This means you’d have to wait a full day to see if there are any changes in your keyword rankings.

    The one workaround here is on-demand updates, but these are only available to users with Standard, Advanced, or Business plans ($89 and above). On-demand updates allow you to manually refresh the rankings for all your terms, once per day. Keep in mind that you can’t refresh the rankings for the same term multiple times. 

    Full SERPs

    The “Full SERPs” is a relatively new addition to ProRankTracker’s list of features. It’s essentially a competitor analysis feature that enables you to see where you rank for the chosen keyword and who your top competitors are.

    The feature only shows you the pages associated with the keyword and their rankings on Google. It doesn’t allow you to click the pages to see what your competitors are writing about the topic — you have to copy & paste the URLs if you want to take a look at their articles.

    ProRankTracker Full SERPs Feature

    There is no search volume for the keyword either. The feature only shows the longevity, top position, the bottom position. You can also see each domain’s WhoIs data, but we don’t see how this is relevant to your SEO efforts. 

    The chart view can be helpful to keep track of how your rankings and the rankings of your competitors change over time, but overall, the information this feature provides is bare bones. 

    Reports

    ProRankTracker has an excellent reporting feature — one of the most detailed we’ve seen from a rank tracker.

    ProRankTracker Reports 

    There are several types of reports the tool can help you generate: 

    • Overview reports — a detailed overview of the rankings for your URL or selected terms
    • Progress reports — reports that highlight changes in your website’s term rankings
    • Comparison reports — comparison of the rankings of the selected term on different URLs or in different search engines
    • Benchmark reports — a great way to see the progress of your rankings for the same URL between two dates, weeks, or months 
    • Client reports — customizable reports with shareable links, so you can quickly send them to clients or team members
    • Automated reports — scheduled reports you can receive via email, or to your Dropbox or Drive account

    The reports ProRankTracker generates are quite detailed, and you can have the data displayed as lists, graphs, and charts, allowing you to easily gauge your site’s SEO performance.

    Site Audit

    The site audit feature lets ProRankTracker crawl your website and check it against various SEO parameters, like loading speed, on-page SEO, mobile responsiveness, etc. It’s a great way to see your site’s overall SEO performance and identify areas you can improve.

    Image source: ProRankTracker

    The audit can show you the most frequently used keywords, duplicate content, pages without proper keyword optimization, issues with headings and meta titles/descriptions, and other elements of your website that you can tweak to boost your rankings. 

    The Standard pricing plan allows you to audit ten websites and 200,000 pages. The insights this feature provides are quite valuable, so we recommend taking full advantage of ProRankTracker’s site audit.

    Rankings Discovery

    “Rankings Discovery” is the term ProRankTracker uses for simple keyword suggestions. At its core, this feature just shows you which keywords your website is already ranking for in the top 100 results and allows you to add them to be tracked.

    The great thing about this feature is that it shows you which search engine and device each suggested keyword is ranking for. 

    One thing that’s slightly confusing is that ProRankTracker also has a “Keyword Suggestion” feature on top of their “Rankings Discovery.” The main difference is that the suggested keywords are the ones you’re not ranking for, so they represent opportunities to create content around these topics and attract more organic visitors.

    That said, the tool only provides a list of suggested keywords, but not their search volumes. In all honesty, these two features of ProRankTracker are a bit underwhelming, and we definitely wouldn’t recommend relying on them to do your keyword research and choose which terms to track.

    How We Automate Keyword Research and Tracking Before Using ProRankTracker

    The way most people do keyword research is fundamentally flawed. 

    This shouldn’t’ come as a surprise, given the fact that most SEO experts are sharing keyword research advice based on what they “feel” is right. With everyone advocating a different approach to keyword research, it’s easy to get confused.

    So, who do we listen to?

    • Ahrefs?
    • HubSpot?
    • SEMRush?
    • Brian Dean?
    • Neil Patel?
    • Yoast?
    • Moz? 

    The thing is, regardless of whose advice you end up following, you’ll run into the same problems:

    1. Everyone’s sharing opinions based on their intuition and gut feelings, but nobody is using data to do keyword research
    2. Effective keyword research takes a lot of time and requires a high level of skill and significant experience
    3. Mistakes are likely to happen, and you can’t risk delegating high-quality keyword research to inexperienced junior SEOs
    4. You’ll get inconsistent deliverables from one person to another

    Thankfully, there’s a much better option — ClusterAi allows you to adopt a data-driven approach to keyword research and automates the entire process.

    1. ClusterAi takes data directly from Google, meaning your keyword research will be perfect every time
    2. The tool does everything for you, eliminating the potential of human error and saving your weeks-worth of work
    3. It’s extremely easy to use, allowing anyone in your team to do expert-level keyword research in minutes, even if they have no previous SEO experience
    4. ClusterAi lets you import thousands of keywords and clusters them into unique content topics, based on the main keyword and its variations, so you’ll know what keywords to rank for with each page

    It doesn’t get any easier or more data-driven than this!

    Faster, Easier, More Reliable Way to Do Keyword Research

    Instead of telling you how powerful and easy to use ClusterAi is, let us show you how the tool works using a real-world example.

    Say we’re starting a website in the pet niche. 

    1. First, we open up Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and type in “dog”
    2. Then, we select the ‘Having same terms’ feature to see results that include the term we want to rank for

    The tool shows us over 10,000,000 results for keywords that include our term.

    We need to narrow this down, and we’ll do so by adding “food” alongside “dog.”

    Now, Ahrefs returns 455,000 variations that include both terms.

    We can export the top 25,000 keywords, based on their search volume, and import them into ClusterAi. 

    Then, we just need to let ClusterAi run since the process is fully automated.

    1. ClusterAi will check the top ten results on Google for every keyword on our list
    2. It will then compare all 25,000 keywords against each other
    3. ClusterAi will look for keywords that share three or more URLs
    4. The tool will then sort the ones that meet the criteria into unique content topics 

    In minutes, we’ll get a list of over 1,000 unique content topics. ClusterAi shows the data in the list by:

    • Main keyword 
    • Total search volume 
    • The variations

    You can click on any cell to expand it and see the full list of keyword variations.

    There you have it — expert keyword research done in minutes! Plus, it’s based on raw data from Google, so it’s perfect every time. 

    ClusterAi literally does all the work for you, saving you a ton of time and making keyword research as simple as possible. In minutes, you’ll get an extensive list of keywords you can rank for.

    Did You Find This ProRankTracker Review on the First Page of Google? 

    ClusterAi’s data-driven approach to keyword research enabled us to rank on the first page of Google for over 100,000 keywords. And that’s without building backlinks or any other technical BS.

Dragon Metrics Review: Should You Give It A Try?

  1. Dragon Metrics Review & Alternatives — A Powerful Rank Tracker for the Asian Market

    One of the key features of any rank tracker is search engine support. While most of them support Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, you’ll only find a handful of rank trackers online that allow you to check your rankings on Baidu. 

    Baidu is the predominant search engine in the Asia-Pacific region. The fact that Dragon Metrics supports it makes this rank tracker an excellent choice for companies targeting the APAC market. 

    In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Dragon Metrics’ key features to give you a better idea of how this tool integrates with your workflows. 

    We’ve reviewed 35+ of the most popular rank trackers on:

    • Speed
    • Accuracy
    • Search engine support
    • Location support
    • Device support
    • Other important features

    If Baidu support isn’t a crucial feature for your campaign, or you simply determine that this tool isn’t a good fit for your projects, you can always visit our hub page and check out Dragon Metrics alternatives.

    Why You Should Listen to Us About Dragon Metrics

    Before we get started with the review, let’s address the elephant in the room — why should you listen to our advice regarding Dragon Metrics? 

    We understand how Google actually works and know what it takes to create effective SEO campaigns that get results. 

    In the last year alone, we took three projects from zero to over 100,000 monthly visitors, so we have the results to back our claims.

    We grew Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours watched on YouTube in 2019.

    We use rank trackers ourselves, so we know what to look for in one. That said, we won’t try to convince you to use or avoid Dragon Metrics. Instead, we’ll give you an unbiased review and let you make an informed decision for yourself. 

    Let’s jump right in.

    About Dragon Metrics

    At its core, Dragon Metrics is a keyword rank tracker. What’s worth noting is that the tool also offers other useful features — like on-site SEO and backlink analysis — on top of the standard rank tracker package. These add-ons are incredibly useful, as they provide you with valuable information that will help you improve your rankings and increase the effectiveness of your SEO campaigns. 

    If you want to familiarize yourself with the tool before purchasing a monthly subscription, you can either schedule a demo or start a free trial from Dragon Metrics’ homepage.

    Dragon Metrics Homepage

    There’s also an option to “Take the tour,” which redirects you to a different page that briefly describes the tool’s main features. Next to each feature, there is a “Learn More” button that you can click to see a detailed explanation of the feature and get a better idea of what Dragon Metrics can do for your business.

    Dragon Metrics Product Tour

    The descriptions are accompanied by screenshots from within the tool, so you can see each of Dragon Metrics’ features in action. We recommend reading through the Product Tour page before starting your free trial since the explanations will help you navigate Dragon Metrics with ease.

    One thing we need to highlight about Dragon Metrics’ free trial is the fact that they allow you to test out the tool completely risk-free for 30 days! 

    Most other rank trackers only offer 7-day or 14-day trials and often limit you regarding what features you can use. A full month to test out all of Dragon Metrics’ features is quite generous — it’s plenty of time to assess whether or not Dragon Metrics aligns with your SEO needs. 

    The likely reason Dragon Metrics decided to offer its potential users a 30-day free trial is the fact that the tool is a bit pricey. Dragon Metrics’ paid plans start at $99 for 1,000 keywords, so it’s not the cheapest option on the market. One thing worth noting is that if you opt for a yearly plan, you’ll essentially get two months for free.

    Dragon Metrics Pricing

    The main issue we see with Dragon Metrics is that even the most expensive pricing plan allows you to track only 10,000 keywords. While this might be sufficient for the needs of some SEO agencies, it’s worth noting that other rank trackers offer up to ten times more keywords for the same price.

    If you’re looking for a cheaper option that lets you track up to 100,000 keywords, check out Dragon Metrics alternatives

    Here’s a quick overview of Dragon Metrics:

    Dragon Metrics Overview
    Monthly cost From $99/month to $999/month
    Number of keywords From 1,000 keywords to 10,000 keywords, depending on the plan
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 30,000 – 300,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0033
    Year funded 2011
    Number of employees 11–50
    Capterra reviews 4.5/5 stars
    g2 reviews 4.5/5 stars
    Facebook followers 85
    Twitter followers 950

    Getting Started With Dragon Metrics 

    What threw us off a bit is the fact that, once you log into your Dragon Metrics account, you’re not automatically redirected to the tool’s dashboard. Instead, you have to set up a project from the tool’s website first. Although not an inconvenience in any way, it is a bit odd. 

    After you create the project and access the tool, you’ll be greeted by a welcome page that prompts you to schedule a demo. It’s a great offer, given the fact that doing so will increase the limits on your free trial account and allow you to track up to 1,000 keywords and crawl up to 100,000 URLs.

    Dragon Metrics “Book a Demo” Offer

    During the demo, one of the company’s sales representatives will walk you through the tool’s features and show you how Dragon Metrics can meet your SEO needs. 

    If you don’t want to go through the trouble, you can simply choose not to schedule a demo and continue exploring the tool on your own.

    Dragon Metrics Features

    Dragon Metrics can do a lot of things on top of showing you information regarding your rankings. At the same time, the tool’s UI is well organized, so you won’t feel overwhelmed. 

    In other words, the tool is good for affiliates and business owners who want to use it for simple rank tracking, as well as for advanced SEOs who want to perform a deep analysis of various websites. 

    Here are the main features of Dragon Metrics:

    1. Search engine, location, and device support
    2. Check frequency
    3. On-site optimization
    4. Link management
    5. Competitor analysis
    6. Content planning
    7. Reporting
    8. Analytics integration

    Search Engine, Location, and Device Support

    We’ve already hinted at the fact that search engine support is one of Dragon Metrics’ strong suits. The tool enables you to track your rankings across 11 search engines, in over 200 countries and languages!

    The supported search engines include:

    • Google — desktop and mobile
    • Baidu — desktop and mobile
    • Yahoo!
    • Bing 
    • Naver
    • 360/Haosou
    • Sogou
    • Yandex
    • Shenma
    • Daum
    • Seznam

    For a full list of supported languages, check out Dragon Metrics’ FAQ page.

    The interesting thing regarding device support is that you can only check mobile rankings for Google and Baidu. For all other search engines, you can only see the rankings for queries made from desktops. 

    When it comes to localization, you can leverage the tool’s local search to see the results for a specific geographic region. Here, you can select a country or type in a city or postal code. 

    The tool gives you an overview of all added keywords, while also allowing you to monitor the performance of individual keywords. The data is presented through easy-to-understand charts and graphs, so you’ll be able to gauge the effectiveness of your SEO campaign with a quick glance.

    Dragon Metrics also provides insights for over 25 different result types — featured snippets, news, images, videos, knowledge panels, etc. — providing you with comprehensive information regarding your site’s SEO performance.

    Check Frequency

    The tool’s biggest drawback is the lack of flexibility regarding the check frequency. By default, the rankings are updated weekly. 

    Daily ranking updates are considered the golden standard when it comes to rank trackers, so this seems like an oversight on Dragon Metrics’ part. 

    The tool’s FAQ page reveals the reasoning behind this decision. As it turns out, you can get daily ranking updates, but you’d have to contact their support first. 

    Regardless of whether there’s an additional account upgrade required or not, this is less than ideal. We see no reason why they wouldn’t simply implement the ability to choose between daily and weekly updates within the software itself.

    Most people will prefer to receive daily ranking updates, so making them contact support to request this capability is an inconvenience, in our opinion.

    On-Site Optimization

    The Dragon Metrics’ “Onsite” feature includes a Site Auditor and a Site Explorer.

    The Auditor can crawl up to one million pages, depending on your subscription plan. It shows you all the issues on your website that impact your rankings, sorted by priority — from highest to lowest.

    Site Auditor Issues List

    The list also shows you what type the issue falls under, as well as how many pages of your website suffer from the same issue. 

    You can click any of the issues in the first column, and the tool will show you a list of all pages plagued by it, alongside a detailed description of the issue itself. Dragon Metrics even provides you with a step-by-step guide for solving every single SEO issue you might run into, which makes it a great option for people who are just dipping their toes in SEO waters. 

    When you scroll past the list, you’ll see charts representing different errors and issues, giving you a quick overview of your site’s performance. The charts are also a great way to keep track of your progress, once you make the necessary changes.

    Issues Charts

    Link Management

    The “Links” feature of Dragon Metrics is an excellent way to assess the strength of your backlink profile and see who’s linking to your website, what pages are people most often linking to, and how different pages of your website contribute to your domain authority. 

    The feature also includes link health monitoring and alerts. Through frequent checks, Dragon Metrics helps you make sure that the page is still up and that the link exists and works properly. Whenever there’s a change in the link’s status, the tool will notify you immediately, so you can fix any broken links in an instant.

    While the overview provides a comprehensive look at your backlink profile, you can check individual aspects from the feature’s drop-down menu.

    Dragon Metrics Links Sub-Menu

    What’s worth highlighting here is the fact that Dragon Metrics allows you to compare your backlink profile to those of your competitors. 

    The list shows the data regarding:

    • Domain authority
    • Page authority
    • Spam score
    • Linking domains
    • Linking pages
    • Dofollow links
    • Nofollow links

    The “Link Gap Analysis” is also worth mentioning, as it’s not something you’ll find in most other rank trackers. This feature allows you to see domains and pages that are linking to your competitors but aren’t linking to your website. 

    You can “spy” on your competitors to see what type of content is generating the most backlinks, as well as discover new backlink opportunities for your own site. 

    Competitor Analysis

    When creating your account, Dragon Metrics prompts you to add several competitors. Under the “Rankings” tab, you can check their positions and your site’s individual keyword rankings to up to nine competitors.

    Dragon Metrics will also automatically perform “Competitor Discovery” and email you a detailed report showing you the top 50 highest-ranking competitors for each keyword group and search engine. This provides you with valuable insights into the competitive environment and lets you see your site’s share of voice for the keywords you’re tracking. 

    Content Planning

    The “Content” feature of Dragon Metrics is extremely useful for both monitoring the search volumes for keywords you’re tracking, as well as discovering new topics and search queries you can create content around.

    The “People Also Ask” section lets you see what questions your target audience needs answers for that are relevant to the keywords you’re ranking for. 

    You’ll also see the sites that provide the best answers to these questions, as well as the answers themselves. This can help you optimize your existing content or, if you feel the question needs to be answered in detail, create new posts around the topic.

    Dragon Metrics “People Also Ask” Feature

    You can also check the box next to the questions to add them to the list of keywords you’re currently tracking. 

    On top of this, Dragon Metrics also has a “Related Searches” option that shows you queries related to the keywords you’re tracking, and their monthly search volumes. While not a strong, professional keyword research process, it can help you identify new opportunities regarding content creation.

    Reporting

    Dragon Metrics’ “Report Builder” lets you create fully customizable PDF or Excel reports and send them to clients and team members via email. The reports the tool generates are fully white-labeled, so you can add your company’s logo and colors to them before you send them to your clients.

    Dragon Metrics Report Builder

    There are quite a few options to choose from when creating a Dragon Metrics report — from the update frequency and keyword groups you want the data for to the number of columns, sorting options, and ranking URLs to include.

    Analytics Integration

    Dragon Metrics lets you integrate your Google Analytics account with the tool, so you can have an overview of your website’s traffic and conversions from other sources alongside organic search. 

    After you connect your Analytics account, you’ll be able to quickly navigate between organic, paid, social, and referral traffic. This feature is incredibly powerful for e-commerce sites, as it can also show sales and product performance.

    How We Automate Keyword Research With ClusterAi Before Using Dragon Metrics

    No matter how you look at it, the fact is that keyword research is broken. 

    • It’s a manual process that takes weeks and requires a high level of skill and experience
    • Everyone does keyword research based on intuition and gut feelings, but nobody is using data to do keyword research
    • This makes it impossible to delegate high-quality keyword research to junior SEOs
    • You get inconsistent deliverables from one person to another

    ClusterAi lets you adopt a data-driven approach to keyword research and ensures that it’s perfect every time. The tool relies on data from Google and automates the entire process, eliminating the potential of human error and saving you weeks-worth of work.

    Here’s an example of ClusterAi in action:

    Say we wanted to start an affiliate website in the pet niche. To start generating a large amount of organic traffic, we want to create valuable content around the topic of dog food. 

    In order to do so, we need to find search queries related to “dog food” with the highest search volume.

    First, we fire up the Ahrefs Keywords Explorer and use its ‘Have the same search term’ feature to look up dog + food.

    The combination of the two terms generates over 450,000 variations. We can export the top 25,000 based on volume and import them into ClusterAi

    The tool does all the work for us, so we can just sit back and let it run. 

    1. ClusterAi checks the top ten results on the first page of Google for every single keyword
    2. It then compares each keyword of the 25,000 keywords on the list against each other
    3. It searches for keywords that share three or more URLs
    4. The tool sorts the keywords that meet that criteria into unique content topics 

    In just minutes, we get an extensive list of over 1,000 unique content topics, showing us data by:

    • Main keyword 
    • Search volume 
    • Variations 

    That’s all there is to it! It’s as easy and as data-driven as it gets. With ClusterAi, anyone can do expert-level keyword research every single time, even if they have absolutely no previous SEO experience. 

    Did You Find This Dragon Metrics Review on the First Page of Google?

    This just goes to show you how powerful ClusterAi can be. We use it in our agency’s daily operations, and we couldn’t imagine keyword research without it. And it consistently delivers exceptional results!

    Across our projects, we rank on the first page of Google for nearly 100,000 keywords. And we pulled it off without building backlinks or doing any other complex technical BS.

    AccuRanker stands out as one of the fastest, most reliable, and most accurate SERP trackers. In this article, we’ll go over all of AccuRanker’s features and provide you with a detailed review of the tool, so you can make an informed decision.

    Why You Should Listen to Us About AccuRanker

    Before we get started, let’s address the elephant in the room. 

    Why should you listen to our opinion on rank trackers? There are hundreds of marketers, bloggers, and affiliates out there, sharing their thoughts on a variety of different tools. It’s difficult to tell who you can trust, especially when everyone’s telling you the tool they’re reviewing is “the best rank tracker of all time.” 

    The truth is, there isn’t a single tool that’s objectively the best. It all depends on your SEO needs, skills, experience, and existing workflows. That’s why we’ll provide you with unbiased reviews of the most popular rank trackers, explain all of their features, and point out each tool’s flaws and drawbacks. 

    The second reason is that we run effective SEO campaigns for a variety of clients. In the last year alone, we took three projects from almost 0 to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors.

    We grew Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours of YouTube watch time in 2019.

    Keyword research and SEO aren’t a guessing game. We’re not just sharing our opinion based on what we “believe” works. Everything you’ll read on contentdistribution.com is based on raw data and real-life results.

    With that out of the way, let’s jump right and see how well AccuRanker meets your business needs.

    About AccuRanker

    AccuRanker dubs itself “the fastest keyword rank tracker.” 

    Judging by a large amount of overwhelmingly positive user reviews online and the fact that the tool is used by companies like HubSpot, Salesforce, and other giants in the online marketing niche, it’s safe to say that this title is well justified.

    AccuRanker Homepage

    Apart from the speed of checks, what sets AccuRanker apart from the competition are the tool’s reliability and accuracy. 

    You’re highly unlikely to experience any issues with this rank tracker, and even on the off chance you do encounter a bug or any difficulties with AccuRanker, you can get in touch with their outstanding support team.

    Aside from offering you assistance via live chat, AccuRanker’s support can also provide you with one-on-one “best practice sessions” and extensive guides to help you utilize the tool’s full potential.

    AccuRanker offers a 14-day free trial. To get started using this tool, simply enter your email address.

    AccuRanker Free Trial

    Once you verify your email, you’ll need to set up your account. What’s worth noting here is that AccuRanker asks for a ton of personal information — more than some people might be willing to share for a free trial.

    Aside from your name and password, the required fields when signing up include:

    • Your company name
    • Number of employees
    • Company type
    • The number of keywords you plan to track
    • And your phone number

    The number of keywords you wish to track likely serves the purpose of promoting a pricing plan to you that best aligns with your needs. You can always upscale, if necessary, so this field isn’t all too important when creating the account.

    The main issue is the fact that you can’t create an account without giving the company your phone number. If you’re not too keen on receiving promotional text messages, you can always enter a random number from a fake generator since there’s no phone number verification.

    Once you’re done setting up your free account, you’ll be redirected to the tool’s welcome page that features a short welcome message and a brief video explaining how to get started with AccuRanker.

    AccuRanker Welcome Page

    From here, you can visit the tool’s help center if you have any additional questions or click the “Add domain” button if you’re ready to get started.

    AccuRanker’s free trial is quite generous, letting you track up to 100 keywords for two weeks with the free plan. You also have access to all of the tool’s features, so you can see exactly whether it will fit your project.

    This is a huge plus given the fact that most other rank trackers that offer free trials severely limit the number of keywords you can track (usually around ten) and allow you to test out only the most basic features.

    On the other side of the spectrum, AccuRanker’s paid plans aren’t exactly affordable. The cheapest option is €99 (around $112) per month for 1,000 keywords. The price goes all the way up to €1,975 (around $2,215) for 50,000 keywords. 

    The annual billing plan shaves 10% off the price, but subscribing to AccuRanker is still a significant investment. We suggest making the most out of the free trial period and making sure AccuRanker is the best tool for your project before committing.

    AccuRanker Pricing

    You’ll have access to all of the tool’s features, regardless of which plan you select. 

    The one thing to keep in mind is that AccuRanker counts every single setting you select when creating your project towards the keyword count. 

    For example, if you choose both Google and Bing, the tool counts this as two searches. For every language you select, AccuRanker multiplies the searches, so for three languages, that would be six out of 1,000 searches spent, for a single keyword.

    So, although a thousand keyword searches may seem sufficient, if you’re handling larger projects, you’ll likely need to upgrade to a pricier plan. 

    Here’s a quick overview of AccuRanker:

    AccuRanker Overview

    Monthly cost From  €99 ($112) per month to €1,975 ($2,215) per month
    Number of keywords From 1,000 to 50,000 keywords, depending on the plan
    Search frequency  30
    Actual searches per month 30,000 – 1,500,000
    Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0037
    Year funded 2013
    g2 reviews 4.5 stars
    Capterra reviews 4.8 stars
    Number of employees 14
    Facebook followers 523
    Twitter followers 2764

    Let’s go over AccuRanker’s main features to see if the tool’s functionality justifies the steep price.

    AccuRanker Features

    AccuRanker offers all of the standard features any rank tracker should have and then some. 

    The tool gives you a detailed analysis of your rankings, showing you a wide range of relevant metrics, while at the same time allowing you to filter the data quickly and easily.

    AccuRanker Overview

    AccuRanker provides a wealth of data related to your rankings, but you won’t feel overwhelmed because the information is presented through lists, graphs, and charts, making the tool fairly easy to navigate. 

    AccuRanker’s key features include:

    1. Search engine, language, location, and device support
    2. Check frequency
    3. Reporting
    4. Share of voice
    5. Third-party integrations
    6. Google Grump

    Search Engine, Language, Location, and Device Support

    AccuRanker bundles all four features together, allowing you to select the search engine you want to check the rankings for, along with the language, location, and device — all from the same menu. 

    When adding a new domain inside AccuRanker, if you select the United States as the target market you want to check your rankings for, it would appear that you can only choose the language. 

    That isn’t the case. The tool doesn’t automatically include both Google and Bing searches — it merely shows you which search engines are available in that region.

    Once you select the language, you’ll see a new window where you can check between desktop and mobile for different search engines, and even add specific locations if you’re targeting a specific geographic area.

    There are a few additional settings that you can select, and if you’re unsure what each of them does, you can simply hover your cursor over the question mark for more information.

    The fact that AccuRanker also supports YouTube rank tracking is a huge plus. The only reason why it’s not available in the image above is the fact that you will need to add the channel as a domain when creating your project. 

    Check Frequency

    By default, AccuRanker updates the keyword rankings daily. When you first add the keywords, the tool will immediately perform the check and show you the current rankings. 

    AccuRanker doesn’t offer any check frequency customization, but it does allow you to manually refresh the keywords every two hours. 

    Reporting

    AccuRanker allows its users to create scheduled reports and to have the tool automatically send them to any number of email addresses daily, weekly, or monthly.

    AccuRanker Scheduled Reports

    AccuRanker offers a decent level of customization when it comes to creating reports.

    There are four report types you can choose from:

    • PDF
    • CSV
    • Excel 
    • Google Sheets

    The tool provides also lets you select between four templates:

    • Keywords only
    • Keywords only without search volume
    • Standard report
    • Standard report without search volume

    You can write the email subject line, as well as the email body directly from AccuRanker, and choose which email address you want to send the report from.

    You can also add a variety of filters to the report, depending on what data you want it to portray and how you want the report to be organized. For example, you can have it show rankings for starred keywords only, sort them by the search engine, location, device, rank change, etc. 

    Share of Voice

    AccuRanker’s Share of Voice feature is fairly similar to the Average Rank metric. That said, the Average Rank can often provide you with misleading data, whereas AccuRanker’s SoV feature only reflects significant changes in the performance of your most important keywords.

    What this means is that AccuRanker will prioritize changes for keywords on the first page of Google over changes on other pages, giving you insight into how your keywords that generate the most organic traffic are performing.

    Another interesting feature is the Share of Voice Landing Pages. It lets you see which of your website’s pages generate the most traffic.

    AccuRanker Share of Voice Landing Pages

    Here, we see that DoNotPay’s homepage generates over 94% of the site’s organic traffic. 

    By seeing where visitors land on your website, you’ll know exactly what topics they’re most interested in and can continue producing content around those topics.

    Third-Party Integrations

    AccuRanker supports third-party integrations, so you can expand its reporting features by connecting to Google Analytics, Google Data Studio, databox, etc.

    AccuRanker Integrations

    This is good news if you want to access even more data on top of keyword rankings within AccuRanker, or need to import keywords into the tool as CSV, or export the data from the rank tracker to Google Sheets. 

    Google Grump

    Once you create an account and log into AccuRank’s dashboard, on the left-hand side, you’ll see an icon in the shape of a tiger’s head that looks extremely out of place.

    AccuRank’s Google Grump 

    Clicking on it will open a new page in the browser, where AccuRank will introduce you to its “Google Grump” rating. 

    Essentially, what the feature on this page allows you to do is see “Google’s mood swings.”

    Daily Google Grump Rating

    At times, ranking changes can be the result of a new Google algorithm, so it’s good to keep track of how Google behaves.

    You don’t have to manually check Google’s mood every day — AccuRank gives you the option to subscribe to Google Grump and receive updates on the search engine’s mood daily.

    How We Automate Keyword Research Before Using AccuRanker

    Let’s face it — keyword research is broken.

    1. You typically need a high level of skill and years of experience to do effective keyword research
    2. Doing keyword research manually is tedious and extremely time-consuming
    3. Most SEOs rely on their gut feelings and intuition when doing keyword research
    4. Everyone on the Internet shares different keyword research advice, but nobody is using data to make their keyword decisions
    5. That’s why it’s difficult to delegate high-quality keyword research to junior SEOs with limited experience
    6. In the end, you get different deliverables from one person to the next

    Most people look at keyword research as an art and base their decisions on what “feels right.”  This trial and error approach takes way too much time and significantly lowers your ROI, even if you get it right eventually. 

    The reality is, there’s no reason for keyword research to be so unpredictable. With a data-driven approach, you can turn keyword research into an exact science. ClusterAi does exactly that! 

    ClusterAi relies on hard data from Google and lets anyone perform expert-level keyword research every single time, no matter if they’re an SEO expert or have absolutely no previous experience.

    1. ClusterAi takes the data directly from Google, eliminating the need for speculations
    2. By doing so, it leaves no room for human error and ensures your keyword research is perfect every single time
    3. ClusterAi automates the entire process, providing you with hundreds of keywords in minutes, saving you weeks-worth of work
    4. It sorts the data into unique content topics, based on the main keyword and its variations, so you’ll know exactly what keywords to rank for on every single page

    Expert-Level Keyword Research That Guarantees High Rankings

    To better understand how ClusterAi enables you to do perfect keyword research every time, let’s see how the tool works using an example in the pet niche. 

    Let’s say we’re running a website about pets and want to attract dog lovers. 

    1. We go into Ahrefs Keyword Explorer and type in “dog”
    2. Then we select the “Having same term” from the left-hand menu

    Since the term is very broad, the tool shows us over 10,000,000 variations for “dog.”

    To narrow it down, we’ll add “food” as another search term to use in conjunction with “dog.” 

    Now, we see 455,000 variations that include both terms.

    We can export the top 25,000 keyword variations based on search volume.

    With a single click, we can import that list into ClusterAi

    1. The tool scrapes the first ten results on Google for every keyword on the list
    2. It compares all 25,000 keywords against each other
    3. ClusterAi looks for keywords that share three or more URLs
    4. Then it clusters the main keywords and their variations unique content topics 

    In minutes, you’ll have a comprehensive list that shows you data by:

    • Main keyword The core keyword in each group
    • Total search volume — Search volume for all keywords in a group, combined 
    • The variations — All variations of the core keyword that you can rank for with the same page

    Click any cell in the list above to expand it if you want to see the full list of variations.

    That’s it — job done! You get a list with over 1,000 unique content topics in literally minutes. Not only does ClusterAi save you a ton of time, but it also ensures your keyword research is perfect since all the data is taken directly from Google.

    Instead of slaving away for weeks and comparing the keywords manually, ClusterAi lets you do expert-level keyword research in an instant!

    You don’t even have to know anything about SEO, so you can delegate it to any team member.

      In this article, we’ll take a look at Wincher — a simple, yet powerful rank tracker that might be a perfect fit for bloggers and marketers due to its WordPress integration. We’ll also show you how you can use ClusterAi to automate your keyword research and tracking. 

      About Wincher

      Wincher is one of the most user-friendly rank trackers on the market. It’s incredibly easy to use while providing enough functionality to meet all your keyword tracking needs. 

      On the tool’s homepage, you can sign up for a 14-day free trial to test out Wincher and see how the tool integrates into your workflow. You won’t need to insert credit card details, so you don’t have to worry about being charged for the tool automatically after the trial is over.

      Wincher Homepage

      Note that the signup form requires you to input your website URL and select the region you want to check your rankings for. You can check your rankings for Google only but can select from various different countries, which is quite useful if you’re targeting a specific market.

      Once you click the link in your email to verify your address, you’ll be redirected to Wincher’s home screen, where you’ll need to enter your credentials and set a password to finish account creation.

      Creating a Wincher Account

      What we like about Wincher is that it guides you through the entire process, step by step. Wincher tells you exactly what you need to do to get started with rank tracking

      1. Add at least five new keywords 
      2. Highlight three of them as important keywords
      3. Add competitors to see how they rank
      4. Use keyword research to get ideas for future content

      Wincher’s Step-by-Step Guide

      When you create the account, the tool will automatically provide you with an overview of twenty pages on your website, ranking them by position. Note that, with the free trial, you can only monitor up to five keywords, so choose carefully and pick the ones that are the most important for your brand.

      Wincher Dashboard

      From the dashboard (the default page once you log in), you can immediately see that Wincher provides a lot more information than merely showing you the position of your pages for different keywords. 

      The tool also displays information regarding: 

      1. The featured snippets and the “people also ask” section (Features in the image above)
      2. Position changes for every keyword
      3. Cost per Click (CPC)
      4. Search volume for every given keyword
      5. And monthly traffic

      In the top right corner, you can check the box to select all pages, or you can select them individually in case you want to see their ranking history, assign them to a group, or delete a particular keyword.

      One thing to note is that, with the free trial, the checks are performed weekly. This means you only get two free checks for the 20 keywords the tool picks automatically and the five you add manually. You’ll have to wait a week to see how the keywords you want to monitor perform, but you’ll get to see their current rankings right away.

      When it comes to pricing, Wincher is quite affordable, but the tool does have some limitations. The paid plans start at €10 per month, but for the lowest price, you’re limited to 100 keywords and one website.

      If you want to track keywords across multiple projects, you’ll have to choose a more pricey plan. Each additional website costs €3 and adds 100 keywords you can track. The maximum is 50 websites and 5,000 keywords for €157 a month.

      Wincher Pricing

      Here’s a table with a quick overview of Wincher:

      Wincher Overview

      Monthly cost From €10 (~$11.32) per month
      Number of keywords 100 keywords per site; maximum 5,000 keywords and 50 websites
      Search frequency  30
      Actual searches per month 150,000
      Cost per keywords/monthly $0.0012
      Number of employees 1–10
      Year funded 2014
      Capterra reviews 4.9/5
      Facebook followers 3322
      Twitter followers N/A

      Wincher Features 

      Once you upgrade to a paid plan, you will get access to all of Wincher’s features and will be able to perform checks daily, rather than weekly. Selecting the check frequency is one of the core features that every rank tracker should have. Although the daily check gets the job done, it’s worth noting that there are other tools that offer a lot more flexibility, allowing you to perform the checks every two hours, four hours, daily, weekly, monthly, etc.

      Apart from check frequency, other features Wincher offers include:

      1. Competitors
      2. Reporting and notifications
      3. WordPress plugin
      4. Keyword research

      You’ll notice some of the key features that most rank trackers provide are missing. Wincher doesn’t have location support, giving you the opportunity to only select the country you want to check for but not a more specific geographic location. 

      At the same time, Wincher restricts your search to Google, so you can’t check your rankings for other search engines like Yahoo, Bing, and Yandex. 

      Another thing worth mentioning is that Wincher supports mobile keyword tracking, allowing you to see how you rank for desktop and mobile searches.  

      Competitors

      The “Competitors” feature Wincher provides allows you to see how your website fares against your competitors for any given keyword. You can add various competitor websites, and the tool will provide you with graphs reflecting your and your competitors’ positions in Google search results.

      Position Summary in Wincher’s “Competitors” Tab

      The position summary is color-coded, so you can gauge how your website compares against the competition at a glance. When you hover over the graphs, it tells you how many pages you have in each position.

      Below the graphs, you’ll find a list of the latest keyword positions. You can click the ranking position — both yours or your competitor’s — to see exactly what page is ranking in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP).

      Wincher Shows Us Google Rankings for “Pomeranian Mixed With Corgi”

      TheDogDigest ranks #1 for the Corgi Pomeranian mix, but we can see one of our competitors at #2. You can check out any of the links by simply clicking on them from this window. 

      This is an excellent way to see what your competitors are doing right if they’re ranking higher than you and maybe even pick up on a few tricks! You can see what they covered in their articles and look for opportunities to expand on what they talked about to provide even more value to the readers.

      Reporting and Notifications

      With Wincher, you can also set up automated reports that the tool will send to your email, so you don’t have to constantly check the tool itself. You also have the option of adding multiple emails if you want to share the reports with your colleagues or clients.

      Scheduling Reports in Wincher

      This feature allows you to:

      • Customize the frequency of the reports
      • Select keywords you want the report to feature — all or specific keyword groups
      • Choose the language of the report — only English and Swedish available
      • Choose how the data in the table will be displayed within the report

      Wincher also features a “Notifications” tab, where you can see your successes and alerts. If you don’t want to do a thorough check of all the keywords, you can reference this tab to see successes — typically when you hit position #1 — and other alerts that can, for instance, display a sudden drop in rankings. 

      WordPress Plugin

      One of the reasons why Wincher is popular among bloggers and content marketers is the fact that it has an awesome WordPress plugin. 

      What the plugin does is essentially add your Wincher dashboard to WordPress, making it easier to keep track of keywords you want to rank for within WordPress itself. You don’t have to constantly switch tabs, and you’ll have an overview of the ranks for all the different keywords you added as you’re uploading new content.

      You can add it like any other WordPress plugin, and it will allow you to see:

      • The keywords you added in your dashboard
      • The competitors you recorded
      • Ranking changes for all keywords — each represented with a different color on a graph
      • Keyword table with all the relevant information — ranking, URL, search volume

      Keyword Research

      Wincher’s keyword research feature can be quite valuable when used correctly. When you click on the “Keyword research” tab, you’ll see a comprehensive list of keyword suggestions, and you can add the ones you want with a simple click to start monitoring them.

      This feature isn’t a keyword research tool per se, but it can provide you with suggestions for keywords to create new content around. By default, you’ll see a list of keywords your website is already ranking for, which show up in the first ten results on Google. 

      You can filter this list by, say, search volume, to see what keywords related to the ones you’re already ranking for have the highest search volume and traffic. Here’s an example for one of our websites — TheDogDigest.

      Wincher’s Keyword Suggestions, Sorted by Search Volume

      The tool provided us with over 900 keyword suggestions for our site. When we sort them by search volume, we can quickly identify keywords that we can create content around and drive a ton of organic traffic to our website.

      Wincher’s paid plan also enables you to utilize the feature called “keyword groups.” This feature enables you to create groups and assign multiple keywords to them, so you can monitor related keywords more easily. 

      For example, we can create one group called “dog food” and track keywords like worst dog food, best dog food, puppy food, etc. more easily. We can do the same for “mixed breeds” and see how all our articles about various mixed breeds are doing. 

      This feature is simply a more convenient way to keep track of various related keywords and can show you which related keywords rank together for the same page. It’s not a strong keyword research process for professionals. While it does offer some insight into which keywords have high search volumes, we use Wincher primarily for its keyword tracking, rather than its keyword research.

      See how we automate keyword research with ClusterAi in the following section.

      ClusterAi — Automating Your Keyword Research Process Without Previous SEO Knowledge 

      Doing effective keyword research is often much more difficult than people anticipate.

      • It requires a high-level of skill and extensive experience
      • It’s typically a manual process that takes weeks to complete
      • People trust their intuition and gut feelings, but nobody is using data to do keyword research
      • High-level keyword research can’t be delegated to junior SEOs with limited experience
      • Deliverables are inconsistent from one person to another

      If you want to make keyword research and tracking as quick and simple as possible, ClusterAi will be your best friend! 

      We initially developed this tool for internal purposes — to automate keyword research for our agency. It has since become a core piece of our workflow, and we can’t imagine doing keyword research without it. 

      ClusterAi takes a data-driven approach to keyword research and completely automates the entire process, allowing anyone to perform expert-level keyword research in minutes, with no prior SEO knowledge.

      1. ClusterAi takes data directly from Google, ensuring your keyword research is perfect every time
      2. It eliminates uncertainty and removes the possibility of human error
      3. It allows you to delegate keyword research to any team member since everyone can effectively use ClusterAi, even if they have absolutely no SEO experience
      4. The tool allows you to import thousands of keywords, then clusters them into unique content topics based around the main keyword and its variations
      5. This is crucial if you want to rank high — you’ll know exactly what keywords each page should rank for and will be able to attract the maximum number of organic search visitors.

      Here’s How We Use ClusterAi With Ahrefs to Perform Expert-Level Keyword Research in Minutes

      Let us give you a real-life example of ClusterAi in action, to demonstrate just how much value you can get out of this incredible tool.

      Say we wanted to start an affiliate website in the pet niche. One of the topics we want to cover is dog food. We want to make sure that we rank for every single search query related to “dog food” to ensure we capture as many organic visitors as possible. 

      First, we go to Ahrefs and use its ‘Have the same search term’ feature to look up dog + food.

      The combination of the two terms generates over 450,000 variations. We can export the top 25,000 based on volume and import them into ClusterAi. 

      The tool automatically groups those 25,000 keywords into a variety of unique content topics, providing a comprehensive, easy-to-navigate list, showing us data by:

      1. Main keyword — the core keyword in each group; the one with the highest volume
      2. Search volume — total search volume for all keywords in one group
      3. Variations — all keyword variations that can rank together with the main keyword

      That’s all there is to it! Within seconds, we get over 1,000 pages of keyword research. And it’s all based on data from Google, so it’s perfect every single time. 

      With ClusterAi, you don’t have to be a marketing genius or a keyword research expert. The tool does all the heavy lifting for you, and you’ll get a comprehensive list of keywords you can rank for in minutes, even if you have absolutely no SEO or keyword research experience.

      Did You Find This Article on the First Page of Google? 

      With ClusterAi and our proven SEO processes, we managed to rank on the first page of Google for almost 100,000 keywords, across our projects. The best part about our approach is that we did it without building backlinks or doing any complicated technical BS

  1. 3 Best SERP Tracking Tools For Data Driven SEOs

    If you are looking for the best SERP tracking tool that will help you grow your business, you’re in the right place.

    Instead of spending 119 hours testing dozens of different tools (like we did), here you can read our honest, in-depth reviews that will help you make an informed decision and choose the best SERP tracker for you and your business.

    Let’s begin with understanding why the rank trackers are such a crucial tool for all your SEO activities.

    Why Do You Need SERP Tracking Tools?

    Back in the day, before rank trackers were a thing, you had to type your keyword into Google, check your position, and then add it to a spreadsheet in order to track your rankings.

    All this had to be done manually, which isn’t that bad when you are tracking just one keyword.

    You are also limited by the fact that Google serves you personalized search results, based on your search history, location, and cache, which in turn gives you data that simply isn’t accurate.

    No, going Incognito won’t help either. Google still recognizes your IP address and will serve you different search results based on your personal search history.

    Finally, you are probably tracking tens, or even hundreds of different keywords across different campaigns, projects, and, if you’re an SEO agency, you’re doing all of that for multiple clients.

    In that case, this approach becomes way too complicated, and then it’s time to start searching for a better solution.

    Luckily, those days are long gone and today there are dozens of SERP trackers that can do this for you.

    Rank trackers have become a vital tool in our stacks, and without them, your SEO actions would be a mere shot in the dark.

    Now that we’ve established just how important SERP trackers are, let’s see how we measured their effectiveness and what features we focused on while reviewing.

    6 Most Important Features For SERP Trackers

    To bring you an objective, honest review of 35 rank tracking tools, we had to establish a proper ranking system.

    Here are the most important features you need to look for in a SERP tracker:

    • Accuracy
    • Check frequency
    • Search engine support
    • Location support
    • Device support
    • Pricing

    Accuracy

    If you would try using different tools to check your domain rating, keyword position, or anything else for that matter, you would get different results most of the time.

    Some tools performed very well here, and one of the signs that those SERP trackers are accurate is the fact that we are getting matching results among the top three ones. 

    Others showed results that are not up to date or are simply inaccurate.

    Check frequency

    You cannot have real accuracy without a proper check frequency. This feature shows us how often SERP trackers check your positions and update the results.

    Most of the tools that made it to the list have at least daily check frequency, which is definitely a standard today.

    Some tools, like AccuRanker, take it even a step further with on-demand ranking updates that can gather fresh keyword data every second hour.

    Search engine support

    Are you looking for a SERP tracking tool that can show you more than just Google keyword rankings?

    Google is indeed the biggest search engine by far, with 87% market share, according to Statista.

    If your target audience is only using Google, you really won’t need more than that in terms of search engine support.

    On the other hand, if your audience is in Russia or China, you may need to look for SERP tracking tools that support Yandex or Baidu search engines, since those are extremely popular there.

    Location support

    If your target audience is based in the United States, what good is a ranking report within Indian borders?

    Even more so, what if your, or your client’s business is only interested in traffic coming from a specific micro-location, a particular town, or even a neighborhood?

    This is why location support has also been a crucial factor in ranking the best SERP tracking tools.

    Device support

    There are 3.5 billion mobile users in the world. Around 50% of the total web traffic comes from mobile devices.

    This number has been steadily increasing over the last decade, a trend that we’ll most likely continue to witness.

    Focusing just on desktop users will only take you halfway there, quite literally.

    This is why it is extremely important that the SERP tracker you choose supports both the desktop and mobile platforms. 

    Luckily, most of the tools on our list fulfill that requirement.

    Pricing

    SERP Trackers aren’t exactly cheap, so that’s why we also took pricing into account.

    Luckily, most of them offer a free trial, so you will be able to test them and see if they fit your business needs before spending any money.

    You should carefully consider all the other features and then decide if the tool is worth paying for. Just because a particular tool is affordable doesn’t mean it is worth the investment.

    Here’s How We Know A Few Things About SERP Trackers

    The SEO industry is pretty shady, don’t you think?

    Just try putting an SEO-related title on your LinkedIn profile, grab the popcorn, and enjoy countless backlink offers. As we all know, these are always high-quality and super cheap.

    Seems like a great offer! Too bad we don’t rely on backlinks.

    This doesn’t come as a shock once you realize how many “gurus” are out there, preaching strategies they’ve never tested, through content they’ve stolen from someone else.

    In that kind of landscape, we decided to do the exact opposite. We’ve focused on creating case studies and free SEO guides that show exactly how we approach SEO and what kind of results we get from that.

    We’ve taken three projects from 0 to over 100,000 monthly organic search visitors in the last year alone.

    Rather than give you some theoretical “guru” advice, let us show you some real numbers.

    You’ve probably heard of the SEO Signals Lab group on Facebook. It’s one of the biggest SEO communities. Here’s a graph of one of those projects we posted there:

    DoNotPay (B2C SaaS)

    (Un)fortunately, this graph is already outdated. It climbed to 210k monthly organic visitors in just 13 months.

    We’ve achieved success across different industries, totaling more than 65,000 first page keywords.

    Doggypedia.org (Publisher)

    See how we took Doggypedia to 18,500,000 Pinterest impressions and over 5,700 hours watched on YouTube in 2019.

    CampusReel (B2C SaaS)

    Read our CampusReel case study to learn how we crush B2C SEO.

    If you are looking for consistent ranking results like these, you’re in the right place. 

    Here are a few projects that produced some epic results:

    • 0 to 47,000 organics/month in 13 months for AnyLeads.com
    • 0 to 103,000 organics/month in 13 months for LogicInbound.com
    • 0 to 116,000 organics/month in 13 months for Doggypedia.org
    • 0 to 166,000 organics/month in 13 months for CampusReel.org
    • 0 to 232,000 organics/month in 13 months for DoNotPay.com

    We share literally everything and you can read our free guides to learn exactly how we create tsunami graphs like these, without spending a dime on backlinks or focusing on complicated technical BS.

    Let us now move on and introduce you to the best of the best when it comes to rank tracking tools.

    Top 3 SERP Tracking Tools That You Should Be Using Now

    In this section, you will find the three best SERP tracking tools that stood out and had the highest performance across all the features we were looking at.

    Here’s the list of our top 3 picks:

    Rank tracker Monthly from price G2 Reviews Keywords
    AccuRanker $109 4.6 1,000 – 50,000
    SERPWoo $49,95 5.0 750 – 8,000
    Pro Rank Tracker $25 4.3 200 – 100,000

    AccuRanker

    The World’s Fastest Keyword Rank Tracker really lives up to its name by going the extra mile with a few features that other tools don’t have.

    While it really is the fastest SERP tracker we’ve tested, what really amazed us is its check frequency.

    This is one of the few tools that allow you to manually request refreshing of your ranking data, up to five times a day.

    This makes it easy to act as soon as your rankings drop and prevent any greater damage.

    The only downside is their highest price among the tools we’ve reviewed. At $109 as their most affordable plan available, and a minimum of 1000 keywords, they definitely aim for a more serious segment of the market, such as bigger SEO agencies and larger companies.

    If you run multiple campaigns and track thousands of keywords, AccuRanker is probably the best rank tracking tool for you.

    When it comes to search engine support, besides Google, they also cover Bing, Youtube, Baidu, and Yandex.

    You can read the full review here.

    SERPWoo

    If you are a beginner, this SERP tracker probably isn’t for you. Developed by experts with 30-year industry experience, it is in fact a perfect tool for those who actually know a thing or two about SEO already.

    Its fully customizable experience will allow you to really get the data you want, but you will definitely need to know where to look.

    The alerts feature is one of the finest we’ve seen, notifying you literally the moment the rankings drop.

    If you are looking to track rankings beyond Google, you’ll need to search for an alternative, because this is the only search engine that SERPWoo supports.

    You can read the full SERPWoo review here.

    Pro Rank Tracker

    This is probably the best option for SEO professionals operating on a smaller scale. With a $25 monthly subscription that gets you up to 200 keywords to track, you’ll be getting a great deal here.

    The number of URLs you can track is unlimited, even at the basic tear, while the check frequency is daily.

    Pro Rank Tracker also gets a bonus point for being the only tool we’ve reviewed that offers Amazon tracking, besides the usual Google, Yahoo, Bing, YouTube, and Yandex.

Hiring The Highest Quality, Most Affordable Writers On The Internet

How to Hire The Highest Quality, Most Affordable Freelance Writers On The Internet

Finding freelance writers that can provide the quality you need at the price point you can afford is tough.

That’s especially true if your goal is to build a content distribution engine to saturate your vertical and to appear everywhere that your target audience is searching across the buying funnel. contentdistribution.com helps SaaS and e-commerce companies do just that.

Learn the #1 lever to get the fastest SEO results

Over the last six months, we’ve reviewed 1,000+ writer profiles across dozens of job sites, assigned more than 200 sample work tests, and hired 30 writers. 

Key Takeaways

We’ve learned a lot through this journey, and we’re sharing it all with you:

  1. The economics of hiring in-house writers vs. freelance writers
  2. Why high-quality writers only cost $.05c per word (note: this does not apply to ROI-driven direct-response marketers like Danial Doan)
  3. The biggest bottlenecks in turning your content investment into organic search revenue
  4. Why your content calendar is more significant than you think it is
  5. Where to consistently find the highest quality, most affordable content writers on the internet
  6. The problem with hiring from Facebook groups and how to navigate around it
  7. How to minimize the risk of missing writing deadlines
  8. The four things you need to do to keep your writers happy

The economics of in-house writers doesn’t add up

We work with companies that have raised millions in funding or are incredibly profitable, with $100,000+ per month marketing budgets that don’t hire in-house writers.

Want to know why?

Check out the going rates to hire a writer in Austin, San Francisco, and Seattle, according to GlassDoor.

San Francisco Writer Salaries

Austin Writer Salaries

Seattle Writer Salaries

The cost of hiring in-house writers

“The average writer can write 1,000 to 2,000 words per day before their brains begin to fry and quality drops through the floor” –  Gordana S., content manager at contentdistribution.com.”

That means your in-house content writer is producing somewhere between 20,000 to 40,000 words of content per month. That might sound like a lot. Still, picture an ambitious, B2B brand with the goals of dominating their vertical and appearing everywhere their target audience is searching. It is not uncommon for such a B2B brand to have more than 100 unique content opportunities they need to publish to rank for all of the keywords that could attract qualified traffic.

And it’s not crazy for B2C brands to have thousands of unique content opportunities to get in front of prospects.

That’s a lot of content.

And at 20,000 words per month, and an average of 2,500 words per page, your in-house writer is only producing 6.7 pages of content per month.

Here, we did the math for you.

City Per Page Rate Per Word Rate
San Francisco $820 $0.32
Seattle $790 $0.31
Austin $620 $0.24

At 2,000 words per day / 40,000 words per month:

City Per Page Rate Per Word Rate
San Francisco $410 $0.16
Seattle $395 $0.16
Austin $313 $0.12

Hidden costs of hiring writers in-house

The rates above are significantly lower than in reality for two reasons:

  1. The salaries from GlassDoor didn’t factor in taxes and benefits
  2. The math assumes your writer is producing content five days a week with no time off

Understand how content costs dramatically impacts ROI using our SEO ROI formula (Google Sheet)

When it comes to organic search, all delays are costly

But the cost isn’t the only hidden impact of hiring an in-house writer.

The other impact is on how long it takes for you to begin to rank, generate traffic, and create an impactful acquisition channel.

You see, the two most significant bottlenecks in achieving ROI on an organic search campaign are:

  1. You can’t rank for a keyword without a page focused on that keyword. The first bottleneck is how long it takes you to work through and publish your content calendar to execute on all of the opportunities you identified to drive qualified traffic through the buying funnel
  2. The second bottleneck is how long it takes to start ranking and generating traffic after publishing

If you need to publish 100 pieces of content to rank for all of the keywords that you identified as able to drive qualified traffic, it will take you 15 months to work through your content calendar. 

That means that content published in months 7 to 12 is still maturing and providing minimal business impact a year into your organic content distribution campaign.

A 15-month content calendar plus a 6-month maturation time means it will take your content nearly two years to fully mature. 

A two-year timeline to turn organic search into a viable acquisition channel might be OK for some brands, but ambitious brands that want to crush search and generate massive audiences don’t have time to wait two years to do it.

Keep an eye on your rankings with the best SERP tracking tool. We’ve reviewed +35 of them.

Smart, ambitious brands front-load their content calendar.

Instead of publishing 6.7 pieces of content per month for 15 months, they publish their 15-month content calendar in six months.

That’s 17 pieces of content being published every month.

With a 6-month maturation time, that means by month eight, 34 pages are ranking and generating business impact. By month 12, all 100 pieces of content have matured enough to begin to rank, generate traffic, and create business value.

Here is another example of what happens when you front-load content creation.

Seriously, learn the #1 lever to get the fastest seo results

How to find good, affordable writers

Here’s the deal.

Just like the #1 lever for faster SEO results is publishing more content.

The #1 lever for hiring better writers is evaluating and testing more writing candidates.

That’s it.

The more writers you evaluate and test, the more likely you are to find the right mix of quality, affordability and capacity.

Check out the metrics on this hiring cycle:

  • 174 candidates
  • 80 invited to take our pre-hire writing test
  • 55 submitted a completed test
  • 26 writers passed the test

We use Workello to filter through hundreds of candidates to identify and hire the top 1% in just a few minutes.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Post your job ad on Reddit, LinkedIn, Facebook, ProBlogger, etc
  2. Watch candidates stream into your hiring dashboard
  3. Send pre-hire writing tests to your best candidates
  4. Sitback, relax and wait for candidates to take your test
  5. Hire the top 1%

Everything in Workello is pre-written and pre-optimized so you can start accepting writers into your hiring funnel in 90 seconds.

Here are some hiring guides to get you up and running ASAP:

  1. Get 200+ writers in the next 72 hours
  2. Hiring writers for hard content (Dev Ops, SaaS, legal, martech, etc)
  3. Outsource job posts to a VA
  4. Why writer marketplaces are broken

To summarize the cost of hiring in-house vs. freelance writers

We did the math for you again, and it’s not pretty. The table below is based on 100 pieces of content at 2,500 words each.

Type Per Word Total Cost
San Francisco $0.32 $80,000.00
Seattle $0.31 $77,500.00
Austin $0.24 $60,000.00
Freelancer in LCOL Country $0.05 $12,500.00

When you work with freelance writers, you can hire enough to get through your content calendar in 6 months rather than 21 months.

Think 2,500 words is too long for a blog post? Think again.

Writing more words is one of the core philosophies in ranking without backlinks

Hire better, more affordable writers on auto-pilot with Workello.

Your Content Calendar Is Bigger Than You Think

Copy our hiring automation for testing and hiring writers

Ambitious brands don’t just want to rank for a few keywords related to their product.

Ambitious brands want to touch their target audience multiple times across the buying funnel.

Once that qualified visitor lands on their page, they’ll fire a pixel and follow him or her across the internet.

If you are servicing a national or international audience (as opposed to local), chances are high your content calendar is a lot bigger than you think.

Like exponentially bigger.

Here are a couple of examples.

BrandChamp.io

BrandChamp helps e-commerce brands scale their influencer, ambassador, and affiliate campaigns to thousands of participants without the manual overhead of managing a vast program.

Their target audience is marketers working within e-commerce companies.

What does that buyer persona search for?

Influencer and ambassador related content.

If I were BrandChamp, I’d want to be everywhere my target audience was searching.

(To be fair to BrandChamp, they’re outranking bigger brands, with larger budgets and more backlinks for the opportunities we did target, learn how in BrandChamp’s SEO for B2B SaaS case study.

But if they want to own their vertical and become a name brand with their target audience, they need to publish a lot more content.

Let’s check out the keyword groupings:


How much more revenue would BrandChamp make if they generated the same amount of organic search of traffic as InfluencerMarketingHub.com?

With an estimated 717,000 organic search visitors per month from the exact audience BrandChamp sells to, BrandChamp would likely earn millions more.

But to get there, Influencer Marketing Hub published over 850 pages of high quality content.

Automate your B2B SaaS keyword research with ClusterAi

Tenzo Tea

Tenzo Tea sells Matcha tea with <3 from California.

Their audience is searching Google for Matcha.

There are 88,000 ways people search Google using the word ‘Matcha.’

How many unique pages of content does Tenzo Tea need to create to rank for all of the paths their target audience is taking across the buying funnel?

Over 100.

Want to know how we figured that out?

We’ve been using ClusterAi, a keyword grouping tool that does it for us.

It helps us reduce our keyword research time from 30 minutes per page to 30 minutes per project.

By telling us precisely how many pages we need to create to rank for all of the ways a target audience will search.

And by telling us exactly which variations to use on each page.

Here is how it works:

  • Export a list of thousands of keywords from Ahrefs
  • Import the list into the ClusterAi
  • ClusterAi scrapes the first ten search results of each keyword
  • And compares the pages ranking across keywords
  • Keywords that have enough URLs in common are grouped into unique content topics
  • Keywords that don’t have enough URLs in common are grouped into separate topics

Why does this work so well?

Because if two different keywords have enough URLs in common, it means that a single page can rank for both keywords.

But if two keywords don’t have enough URLs in common, it means each search result is unique, and you can’t rank for both keywords with one page, you need two pages.

Here is what Tenzo Tea’s surface area looks like to get in-front of matcha drinkers. 

 Yes, the Matcha tea keyword grouping has a combined search volume of 339,000 between the main keyword and its variations.

But that’s a super competitive keyword.

And Tenzo Tea might do everything right, and still not rank.

But some of those other keyword groupings are much more attainable.

And the people searching them are just as ready, if not more ready to buy than ‘Matcha.’

Tenzo Tea should absolutely try and rank for Matcha, but while they’re slogging it out, they should also target all of those other opportunities across the funnel.

Not sure the ROI is there to justify the content cost?

Minimizing risk to deadlines

Relying too heavily on too few writers is a recipe for missing deadlines. We’ve learned this lesson the hard way.

These writers are freelancers and will drop you for clients who:

  1. Pay more
  2. Request fewer revisions
  3. Pay on-time
  4. Are nicer to work with

Points #2 to #4 are absolutely within your control, but #1 may not be, and when we lose writers, it’s always due to #1.

It’s unfortunate to lose a great writer, but if you design your content distribution infrastructure correctly, it won’t impact your deadlines.

The key to minimizing risk to deadlines is hiring enough writers so that each writer is only writing one article per week.

There is nothing worse than assigning a bunch of content to a writer, communicating timelines to other stakeholders, then being blindsided by a resignation email, or getting ghosted when you touch base.

When you assign one article per week to a writer, and they quit or ghost you, you can re-assign that piece of content to another writer, and because you’re working with a handful of writers, the impact on your timeline of one piece of content is minimal.

The four things you need to retain your writers

Retaining your writers is simple:

Pay them on-time. We pay our freelancers twice a month.

Don’t make your emergency their emergency by springing last-minute deadlines on them. You’re not their only client, and they are juggling other deadlines. Give a seven day turnaround time at a minimum.

Provide enough up-front guidance on precisely what you want so that you can keep the number of revisions to one. The more rounds of revisions you request, the less the writer makes per hour. It also has the benefit of reducing your turnaround time from 1st draft to publishing.

Writers are sensitive, your feedback needs to not only be constructive, but it also needs to be tactful.

Best SaaS Marketing Agencies [Juicy Case Studies Only]

Best SaaS Marketing Agencies [Juicy Case Studies Only]

SaaS is one of the finest business models out there.

It’s really simple. Customers subscribe to your software and they keep paying you for it every month.

All you have to do is keep track of your MRR and ARR while laying on a beach in Thailand.

After all, the SaaS industry is expected to generate nearly $105 billion in 2020.

Sounds like a bulletproof business model, right?

Oh boy. If only it was that easy.

Did you know that most SaaS businesses struggle with getting more than 50 paid subscribers even after two years of entering the market?

Are you aware that million dollar investments won’t help unless you know what you’re doing?

Do you realize that developing the product is only the first step of the way?

If you’re getting into the SaaS industry, I hope you do realize that this is the reality.

Fortunately, there are people who can turn this into your advantage.

Working in SaaS demands a different marketing approach, so make sure you choose the partner that can show you a few case studies to back up their expertise.

Our criteria:

  • SaaS specific experience
  • Proven SaaS case studies
  • Impressive results in SaaS industry

And if you are looking for the SaaS marketing agencies, you’ll find the best of them below.

The ones that made it to the list are focused on helping SaaS businesses, in particular.

#1 Content Distribution

Self-promotion is ugly. Self-promotion backed up with facts is awesome.

Here’s why we’ve put ourselves on top of the list.

We took DoNotPay from 0 to 479,000 monthly organic visits in less than 17 months.

If you were to pay for all that traffic—which is what most new SaaS businesses do—you’d need to pay a lot.

Average cost per click on Google Ads was $2.69 in 2020. And it’s only going up.

Getting 382,000 visits this way would cost you $1,027,580.

Every single month.

Our fees are way lower than that.

If this was the only case study we had to back up our SaaS marketing expertise, we’d be guilty of that ugly self-promotion.

Luckily, we have a few more.

  • 0 to 47,000 organics/month in 13 months for AnyLeads.com
  • 0 to 103,000 organics/month in 13 months for LogicInbound.com
  • 0 to 116,000 organics/month in 13 months for Doggypedia.org
  • 0 to 166,000 organics/month in 13 months for CampusReel.org

Finally, we’re also a SaaS business ourselves.

In 2020, we launched a keyword grouping tool, ClusterAi.

Guess who’s doing the marketing? That’s right—we are.

With a free trial landing page converting at 44%, it seems like we’re doing a good job.

One of the best things about working on our SaaS tool are the insights.

We can test everything we want internally and once we get rock solid results, we implement them on our clients’ SaaS businesses.

If you want to know more about how we helped SaaS businesses with marketing, you can read the full case study here.

#2 Apollo Digital

These guys are crushing it.

With one of the finest SEO case studies in the SaaS marketing world, they had to make it to this list.

Apollo Digital took this SaaS business process management software from 8,000 to 194,865 monthly organic visits in two years!

Check out their full SEO case study here.

The whole project was done without any link building efforts. Their main focus was creating high quality content. 

#3 Flying Cat Marketing

Another agency that focuses on creating amazing content made it to the list.

Content is king, after all.

And if content is king, Flying Cat Marketing is the queen.

Remember, we’re only looking for the best SaaS marketing agencies, and the best way to find one is to follow the scent of juicy case studies.

Led by Maeva Cifuentes, Flying Cat Marketing keeps piling up great case studies.

Their best case study comes from working with a vacation rental SaaS, Host Tools.

Flying Cat Marketing managed to double their traffic and increase the conversions to paid by 46%.

They really prove that content is the way to go.

#4 Kings Point

All that content is king talk led to this point. King’s point. Get it?

If you’re looking for results, you’ve come to the right place.

Steven Macdonald of Kings Point is a no BS guy that consistently gets crazy results for SaaS businesses.

Whether it’s through SEO, content marketing, or conversion rate optimization, King’s Point makes sure SaaS businesses they work with achieve their goals.

They recently grew monthly organic traffic from 25,000 to 54,000 within 10 months for their SaaS client.

#5 Refine Labs

You must have heard of Chris Walker and his Refine Labs team.

That is one of the best SaaS marketing agencies that truly refined demand generation marketing and that is consistently getting amazing results for their clients.

What is the best thing about them?

They share everything they know in their Demand Gen Live podcast.

What about case studies?

Here’s where it gets interesting.

These folks go beyond SaaS.

They even help HwaaS businesses. 

HwaaS? Hardware as a service.

That’s right. They’ve helped Eversound increase their website traffic by 1,500% and the number of their qualified opportunities by 137%.

By improving their general revenue efficiency, they also helped Eversound raise $5MM Series A financing.

#6 Funky Marketing

Too few SaaS marketing agencies understand demand generation.

Funky Marketing is one of them.

They recently ran a highly successful campaign that highlights their abilities.

If you ever ran Facebook Ads, you know that cost per result of $0.22 is nearly impossible to get.

It turns out, that’s exactly what they did. Plus, it was a conversion campaign, so forget about meaningless views and unqualified leads.

These guys know what they’re doing. Creating a community with advertising, that’s what they call it.

#7 Full Funnel

Less leads. More revenue.

Full Funnel SaaS marketing agency lives by this rule.

Instead of focusing on getting leads, they focus on getting you tangible results.

Does a 50% MRR growth sound tangible enough? That’s exactly what they were able to achieve for one of the clients, Opsfleet.

Impressive, huh?

How Do You Pick the Best SaaS Marketing Agency?

Way too often, businesses pay marketing agencies for the process and not the results.

As a SaaS business owner, your main goals are increasing MRR and ARR.

You need to find an agency that can deliver on these goals.

Here’s what you need to check first. First, you need to check if they have:

  1. SaaS specific experience
  2. Experience in your niche
  3. A proven track record

Then you’ll need to get even more specific. Check whether they are able to:

  • Get results consistently
  • Adjust their strategy to your business needs
  • Create a detailed roadmap towards your goals

How To Measure SaaS Marketing Agency Effectiveness

Marketing should be tied to revenue. That’s what the best SaaS marketing agencies get measured on.

Here’s how you can estimate your marketing ROI.

Right now, your simplest funnel may look like this:

  1. User visits your website
  2. They sign up for a free trial
  3. They convert into paid subscribers

Let’s say your monthly SaaS subscription is $9.99.

Your website is getting 10,000 visitors each month.

10% of them convert into free trial users.

20% of free trial users convert into paid subscribers.

Now let’s do the math.

10,000 x 0.1 (10%) x 0.2 (20%) = 200 paid subscribers

MRR = 200 x $9.99 = $1,998

It’s time for your marketing agency to jump in.

What if they increase your monthly website traffic from 10,000 to 200,000?

A 20x traffic increase can lead to a similar MRR increase ($39,960 MRR).

What if they also increase your visit-to-free-trial conversion rate from 10% to 20%?

Increasing visit-to-free trial conversion rate by 200% can lead to similar MRR increase ($79,920 MRR).

Finally, what if they manage to increase trial-to-paid conversions as well? 

What if you go from 20% to 30%?

1.5x increase in trial-to-paid conversions can lead to 1.5x MRR increase ($119,880).

NOTE: These are only estimates. E.g., when traffic increases, conversion rates tend to drop. Observing both metrics separately and as a part of a system is essential.

Just like that, you went from MRR of $1,998 to generating $119,880 each month.

Your product is still the same. So what happened?

Well, marketing did its job.

Having done the math, let me ask you this…

Is it worth investing $10,000–$50,000 in a marketing agency that knows how to deal with SaaS businesses?

If you’re still not sure about the answer or this example looks unrealistic… (well because it is)

we’ll remind you that we took DoNotPay from 0 to 479,000 monthly visits.

Imagine the ROI on that.

6 Best SaaS Consultants [Skyrocket Your Business]

6 Best SaaS Consultants To Skyrocket Your Business

SaaS companies are expected to generate $623 billion by 2023.

This business model is quickly taking over the world, but there’s a catch.

Most SaaS businesses fail.

Building your product and proudly launching it just isn’t enough.

You may consider your solution revolutionary, but with a little market research…

I bet you’ll be able to find a few competitors in any niche.

Even if you don’t have any—don’t worry—you will.

When we created our SaaS tool—ClusterAi—there were barely any signs of similar tools on the market.

Just a few weeks after the launch, we’ve learned about at least 3–5 of them.

That being said, competitors won’t even be your biggest issue. Your SaaS business will face countless challengesfrom high user acquisition costs to low retention rates.

Luckily, for each problem you face, there’s a solution.

SaaS consultants can help you find those.

6 Best SaaS Consultants for Your Business

Finding the best SaaS consultants isn’t easy. You need to find people that have battle-tested skills and a few tricks ready for each problem you face.

The SaaS industry really became present in the market only after 2010.

That means there aren’t that many SaaS consultants out there. Finding the ones with proper experience, the ones that actually built businesses and got results is even harder.

Our list includes the people whose expertise can be confirmed with outstanding results. We picked them based on:

  • Proven track record
  • SaaS-specific experience
  • Growth marketing expertise

#1 Nick Jordan

Starting off with our guy from Content Distribution seems biased? Wrong.

Nick Jordan has an impressive track record that only a few can match.

His juiciest case study?

Taking DoNotPay from 0 to 479,000 monthly organic visits in less than 17 months.

This graph keeps growing daily, and by the time you read this article, it will already be out of date.

If you check out this graph in Ahrefs, let us know how outdated our screenshot is!

He achieved this immense growth with publishing velocity—this simple philosophy never failed us.

This project required no link building. No technical BS. Even the keyword research was automated with ClusterAi to prevent any human errors + save us a ton of time.

The same approach yielded amazing results on multiple different projects. He repeatedly went from:

  • 0 to 47,000 organics/month in 13 months for AnyLeads.com
  • 0 to 103,000 organics/month in 13 months for LogicInbound.com
  • 0 to 116,000 organics/month in 13 months for Doggypedia.org
  • 0 to 166,000 organics/month in 13 months for CampusReel.org

This kind of consistency is what you’re looking for in your consultant.

The best SaaS consultants have that in common. They can replicate their previous successes for your business. You don’t want someone trying out their new ideas on your product.

#2 Nick & Noel

Nick Zviadadze & Noel Ceta run their full-stack SaaS marketing agency—Apollo Digital.

Together, they’ve managed to skyrocket their clients’ SaaS businesses.

Plus, they have a nice graph to prove it.

They grew a BPM SaaS from 0 to 194,000 monthly organic visits.

Here are some of their other clients:

  • Novoresume
  • Blissfully
  • Deskera Books

#3 Josh Fechter

As you might have noticed, I just love a good case study.

If you love them too, check out Josh’s website.

As soon as you visit it, you’ll see these:

Lovely, isn’t it?

It gets even better.

Josh Fechter, looks like you’ve been busy. Good job, man.

With his SaaS business—Squibler—he got some impressive results.

In just a year, the team has created a product that acquires +4,500 new users every single month.

Driving +150,000 monthly organic visits definitely helped get there.

#4 Alejandro Rioja

Alejandro is a serial entrepreneur with a good stack of business successes.

There’s a discussion among marketers—if marketers can’t market themselves, how can you know they’ll be able to help you?

With Alejandro, there’s no need to ask this question.

His personal blog receives 600k visitors per month!

This is huge on its own, but there’s more.

He took his e-commerce business, Flux Chargers, to $100,000 in monthly sales.

Alejandro also manages a huge publishing network that he built from scratch.

When he’s not helping SaaS businesses achieve similar goals, he also loves to rap. Would that be a deal-maker or a deal-breaker to you?

#5 Steve Toth

If you haven’t heard of Steve Toth, you probably haven’t heard of SEO.

Steve is the man behind SEO Notebook—probably the finest library of SEO knowledge.

Every week, he shares the best actionable insights out there.

He’s known in the SEO world for his gigantic success with FreshBooks.

At the moment, FreshBooks receives 1MM monthly organic visits.

Crazy, right?

These are not random, unqualified visits that will never convert. These are all visits coming from 300,000 money keyword queries that he ranks #1 for.

He works with SaaS companies like Mejuri and Ownr, but also other huge brands, such as:

  • Toyota
  • Intercom
  • Porter Airlines
  • KPMG
  • EMI

#6 Benjamin Golden

Sometimes it’s the details that get in the way of your success.

Well, at least you consider them details.

When you hire a good SaaS consultant, they will notice these details. And they will fix them.

Benjamin Golden is that kind of person.

His GoldenWeb agency focuses on fixing technical SEO issues.

When you’re building your SaaS business, it’s fun to implement new strategies like advertising on a new channel, building new product features, or launching a new email sequence.

Focusing too much on this will make you forget that, sometimes, all you have to do is fix what you already have.

That’s exactly what Benjamin does for his clients.

Once he audited his client’s website and fixed technical SEO issues, the traffic skyrocketed.

Traffic increased by 70% just 45 days after audit fixes.

Next time you’re facing challenges, think about fixing what you already have.

What Can You Get From a SaaS Consultant?

Your SaaS consultant can usually help with two key points:

#1 Creating demand. This means:

  • Driving organic traffic to your website
  • Running paid ad campaigns
  • Improving your existing paid campaigns and SEO efforts

#2 Improving the product itself.

  • Increasing retention rates
  • Decreasing churn rate
  • Improving free trial to paid conversion rates
  • Finding the right pricing model

Some consultants specialize in one or the other, while others can help with both.

Overall, you’re looking for a SaaS veteran. Fixing problems even before they appear is possible, but not without the right kind of experience.

Best SaaS consultants, like the ones on this list, can prevent and solve a lot of your problems because they’ve been there, done that.

Many SaaS businesses face the same problems due to the business model they share.

It’s usually one of these:

  • Low free trial to paid conversion rate
  • High cost per acquisition
  • High churn rate

With a consultant that has faced and overcome these obstacles hundreds of times, you’ll immediately have a few solutions to implement.

Choose wisely.
