    The linklicious guy on here said that recently and I pretty much dismissed it at the time but now I see what he/she meant.

    SERP checks being king I find that I will have checked rank changes several times all the while the site exploreres are behind the race.

    I guess it could be useful once they caught up to see where your links are coming from but I find I can usually pinpoint it related to how long previous I did something with a specific program.

    Thoughts?

    On that note I'm on the lookout for a good rank checker; though manual is ok and easy enough it would be useful to streamline the process with one that can track my ranks over time. I was gonna test ranktracker but found it totally useless (as atest) when they didn't let me save the project. Might as well not let me test it at all ya bastards.

    Is it just me or are his paragraphs structured wrong? I'm having a hard time reading his sentences.

    I'm not going to lie, I have little understanding of what you just said, BUT try 'rankchecker.net' if you're looking for a web alternative.

    If you can still find a cracked version of seopowersuite, its gotta pretty good tracking program. There's also a new tracking program in beta by a member of bhw. I believe its by nmesis. Downloaded but haven't used it yet, but I know marauk recommended it in his sb experiment thread

    If your looking for free, try serpattacks. Only problem is that you can't export the information.

    I'm currently using the cracked \version of seo powersuite

    Lol, sorry mate, I knew I was close, and I'm reading this on my phone now so its hard to jump around on threads, or else I would have checked the spelling.

    Btw, you're sb experiment thread is awesome and very helpful

    I am Albania.

    Anyhow, to all the naysayers of my ye olde english lexicon...

    Ye free would be better or cracked (prepares to lose rep for being called a 'theif') so I have a few options here from the above suggestions.

    I already have a version of market samurai on my comp which I never got round to using- so I'll check that one out once I get back to my other comp.

    So are any of these others free that I can try in the meantime? I am at my mother's for a few days so wanna try them out. I also don't wanna be experimenting with cracked materials on her computer for obvious reasons.

    EDIT: I just loled rereading my OP.
