Editors' review

Rank Tracker SEO Software analyzes the rankings of Web sites with search engines like Google and Yahoo. You select keywords relevant to your site, and Rank Tracker reports their search rankings.

Rank Tracker SEO Software installs easily. There's a Help file that explains how to use the program, but we were unable to tell if Rank Tracker has any other features. We analyzed two Web sites built by amateurs and one popular blog. Not surprisingly, the two amateur sites didn't make any search engine's top 100 list. The program ranked the blogger's first name in the top 100, but not the other keywords we chose. It's helpful but hardly surprising to know that our Web sites aren't on Google's radar screen, but we wish Rank Tracker gave out more information than that. Though our sites aren't ranked, any information about any hits the various search engines came up with would have been useful. Better still would have been some tips about how to improve the ranking of our sites based on Rank Tracker's analysis. Perhaps that's beyond the scope of the program, but it would have made it a much more useful tool as well as a better value.

This is an unlimited trial version of the program, but it has some limited functionality. It puts an icon on your desktop without asking, but it uninstalls without leaving anything behind. Professional Web site designers might be able to get something from this program, but it's not especially helpful for amateurs.

    "The best rank checker out there"

    July 18, 2014   |   By KatrinJenstoking

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    suggest feature, checks rankings in many search engines, nice graphs, pie charts and layout

    Cons

    might take a while to pull data for big projects

    Summary

    Rank tracker has been my favorite rank checker for quite a while. It allows you to enter relevant keywords to see where your site ranks. It also suggest highly-relevant new keywords you may want to consider rankings for. Graphs and pie diagrams are really helpful to see big picture at a glance. Well done, Rank Tracker!

    "The legend!"

    May 28, 2014   |   By y_hero

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    It was named "Rank Tracker" many years ago, and now this is a generic name for all position monitoring and search engine checking tools. It's really the best!

    Cons

    Would be nice they could offer it online (but that would be too pricy I guess when looking for online rank checkers). No cons other than that.

    Summary

    Great tool, always on top!

    "Awesome tool for SEO Rank checking"

    May 25, 2014   |   By smsulari

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    It's an awesome tool to ease your work by providing your seo rank checking and analysing work half. Otherwise it's a complete time consuming work.

    If I must say this tool is the only best available right now easily available and affordable.

    Cons

    Export to excel is only for enterprise

    "Ultimate rank checker! The best rank checker I've seen"

    April 24, 2014   |   By Windows-Live

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    Works great! Fast, accurate (unlike all other web-based tools that use their own set of IPs and simply useless for accurate local results, which is very important for me) and easy to use. Started using it almost a year ago, and still haven't seen anything that can even come close to this rank checker.

    Cons

    Requires paid updates, but not a big problem for me - worth every dime invested. I wouldn't call its price ($3/month) to be a real pain for me, not at all :) I get for this updates for ~400 (or ~600, don't remember exactly) search engines every f**king day. Heck, that's a lot of work I guess, and I'm ready to pay 3 bucks to stay updated 100% of my time.

    Summary

    Ultimate rank checker with huge number of options for everyone. No other rank checking tools can even come close!

    And those guys who promote their Rankinity tool by giving bad reviews to their competitors just s**k ;)

    "I too fell for the scam"

    February 25, 2014   |   By advertacity

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    Worked great when updated

    Cons

    Now they want a monthly fee, which is the only reason I signed up with them was because it didn't have one. The search takes hours because it runs on your own computer and gets blocked so it would not be worth spending monthly as there are better software out there on a SAAS model.

    Summary

    Sad I was scammed.

    "Not free and will stop working even if you pay for it."

    January 26, 2014   |   By jesperfj

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    Works well for the first 6 months. Has many good features, many search engines, handles problems with repeat this to same SE which usually resultat in blocking.

    Cons

    I paid 100 USD for the product. After 6 months the rank-checking-functionality of the software stopped working because somehow a "algo-subscription" was required (minimum ca. 6 USD per month). Discussion with the company is futile. Do a search and find that many others have experienced the same thing.

    Summary

    Good software with good features, but even though you pay for 100 USD for it it will stop working after 6 months unless you pay for lifelong subscription.

    "The software is ok until it will not work anymore."

    September 06, 2013   |   By m2group

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    the software does basically all what you need.

    Cons

    the big con is that it is sold by con artists with a hidden subscription agenda.
    we also fell for the trap and bought the enterprise edition and felt the same sadness and pain like many before and after us , now 3 years later after purchase i still can tell this was the most bad investment in the last 3 years.
    they give the illusion that you buy a stand alone product with their license but in fact after six months it is useless and al your money is down the drain , 3 years later they still not made it clear on the buy page that the software simply refuse to function if you not subscribe.
    in fact this amount you initially pay is nothing more then your subscription for the first months

    Summary

    the product is good if you aware of the con and willing to pay this price.
    it is not relevant if the price is justified , it is relevant that they are misleading people in thinking they are making a good deal.

    "There's a Nasty Catch"

    September 02, 2013   |   By gryffynzoi

    Version: Rank Tracker 6.11.1

    Pros

    Nice and fairly detailed reports (although you cannot print, export or email them unless you want to layout a thousand bucks)

    Cons

    I purchased the software (Ranktracker Pro) through Mighty Deals for almost $40. I enjoyed working with it and utilizing its reports. I was using for my personal websites as I try and learn SEO and SEM. Imagine my surprise today to learn that it will now no longer work because it says it must update its algorithms!

    The receipt stated "a 6-month subscription to the Rank Tracker Professional search algorithm updates" - but it didn't say it would not work without it. I figured I still could see what my search position would be for specified keywords!

    Glad I learned this before I went to the next level and/or purchased other of their products. I would have hated to invest almost $400 in the Pro version ($1K for "Enterprise") for it to only work for 6 months!! OUCH!!

    At least it looks like I am only out $40 instead of the $400. Since I've not had a "real" job since late 2009, I can ill afford this kind of snookery.

    Summary

    It's nice software until you find the poo pile swept under the carpet out of sight. It's not a good choice unless you're a business clearing thousands every month (week?!) doing SEO for others or just like flushing money.
