There are many ways to check where a website ranks in all of the major search engines.

You can:

  • Manually check all of your rankings and plot them in a spreadsheet – however for checking sites with more than a few keywords this can become tedious very quickly.
  • Use RankChecker – a Firefox addon, however the results from this tool always tend to be a little off.
  • Use a purpose built piece of rank checking software.

At Tailored Internet Marketing over the years we have used all of the above, but now due to volume we solely rely on the final option – and our software of choice? Advanced Web Ranking all-in-one SEO software. Available for Windows, Mac OS X and even Linux this robust rank checking software is best in class, so why is it so great?

One response to “Advanced Web Ranking – Review”

  1. Dan Letermann says:

    Thanks for the review, Dan. BTW, how do you compare AWR to SEO Powersuite. I just bought Powersuite, and I think it’s a bit better – especially when it comes to rank checking accuracy (needless to say AWR sometimes just makes random guess of your rankings when they get stuck in getting them – like when Google blocks’em or anything like that)
