    The Most Popular Rank Tracking Solutions Comparison

    Okay, folks! So here is my comparison between the Top 5 Rank Tracking Software that I?ve used till date. I hope you find this useful, and it makes your life easier. Do let me know if I miss out on anything.

    I have been into IM for over four years now, and in this time I have used quite a few Keyword Tracking Solutions to figure out that no particular Rank Tracker will give you 100% accurate information. After a lot of Scrutiny and years of using these services, I believe that the following software's are among the best in their field of work.

    DISCLAIMER

    The information and suggestions depicted in this thread are purely my opinions, and I solemnly declare that I am not affiliated to any of these Keyword Tracking Tools. I am collating this information based on my personal experience of using this software and I feel that this will help a few members of this proud community make a stable decision, the next time they are selecting a Rank Tracking Solution.

    So, let?s continue to the list...

    I have numbered the following Top 5 Trackers according to their ranking:

    1. Ezee Rank Tracker
    2. Link Assistant?s Rank Tracker
    3. Moz Rank Tracker
    4. SERPBook
    5. Pro Rank Tracker


    My Detailed Review Of These Trackers:

    #1 Ezee Rank Tracker
    [​IMG]

    I put this is the 1st Rank because it does justice to its brand name. The platform is easy to use, and the interface is clean and clutter free. It lets you track unlimited keywords and websites and also check your youtube video rankings. Additionally, it would help you rank up your website among millions of others by pointing out the key areas where it needs improvements. But, what is the catch? Well, there isn?t any. This program is easy as it advertises.

    Focus Feature 1:
    The custom graph generating feature of Ezee Rank Tracker is awesome. It lets you select the time frame between which you want to see the report.

    Focus Feature 2:
    Automatically schedules scan and report sending to the client, and there is no stress involved.

    Focus Feature 3
    :
    Provides a free statistical report of metrics like MozRank, PA, DA and even PR(Obsolete) without an extra click.

    Focus Feature 4:

    Can also track the performance of YouTube videos and shifts in rankings.

    Focus Feature 5:

    This software is completely reliable and would provide you with 100 percent accurate reports on three most popular search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.

    Focus Feature 6:

    Stay updated with your websites performance with on-the-fly notifications. You will also be informed about the website's current ranking.

    Data Presentation:

    White Label Reports in PDF Format. Can also export data in excel sheets.

    Cost Factor:

    This is why I put this on 1st Rank. It has a simple pricing model for all the extravagant features. Monthly Subscription is $19, and Lifetime Subscription will cost you around $99. Any other cheaper alternative would be hard to find.

    #2 LinkAssistant?s Rank Tracker
    [​IMG]

    Why Do I put this on number 2? Simply because this software is bundled into SEO PowerSuite with for other useful software namely- Rank Tracker, Website Auditor, SEO Spy glass and Link Assistant. There are two editions of this, and I feel that the Professional Edition is good enough for everyone unless you want WhiteLabel Reports.

    Focus Feature 1:
    Perform single website checks in the free version (unlimited keywords). Professional and Enterprise Versions are good for campaigns. Try it free first. Keywords are unlimited in Professional and Enterprise Edition; however in Free Version you can only check results for top 50 Keywords.

    Focus Feature 2:

    This software can track website rankings from basically all kinds of search engines. You can even search from search engines based on their respective country domains.

    Focus Feature 3:

    While the visual appeal of this tool might not be the best in the market, it is sure easy to get accustomed to. This is user-friendly and yields great results every time.

    Focus Feature 4:

    Large corporations reportedly use this software to manage their website tracking requirements as it provides some advanced features that are not found in others.

    Data Presentation:

    You can customize your reports by choosing from 6 available preset templates. The Enterprise Version can export to PDF and HTML as well.

    Cost Factor:

    Free Version ? N/A, Professional Version - $300 and Enterprise Version $700. This is a one time yearly fee, no monthly recurring costs. Thus, you can see that this software costs a little on the higher side. This tool comes close to Ezee as far as utility is concerned.

    #3 Moz Rank Tracker
    [​IMG]

    Moz needs no introduction as it is widely popular all over the world as a premium grade rank tracking tool. Moz simply dwarves the existence of all other platforms, but again comes at a very hefty price tag. I used Moz Medium subscriptions for three months, and I can honestly say that it was an enjoyable experience. The downside of this tool is that it can?t run unlimited campaigns and puts a fairly low cap on the keywords. Not to forget that it doesn't come at a very affordable price. Ezee Rank Tracker would be a pocket-friendly alternative to this one

    Focus Feature 1:

    Moz is not only a rank tracker; Moz Pro subscription comes with Analytics, Fresh Web Explorer, A Keyword Difficulty Estimator, A Crawl Tester, Rank Tracker and on-page grader.

    Focus Feature 2:

    Moz certainly has one of the best Q&A sections that will likely guide you through every problem you might come across. They release constant updates to further improve user experience and correct follies that made its way before.

    Focus Feature 3:

    This software has Basic and Advanced modes that users can make use of based on their requirements.

    Data Presentation:

    With Moz you can export your data to Excel Sheets, PDFs or any other desirable format.

    Cost Factor:
    Moz comes with a 30 Day trial after which the pricing starts from $99 and goes up to $599 per month. There are also yearly subscription packages that start from $237 and go up to $1437. Hence, you can very well understand that this rank tracker tool is clearly not intended for individual usage.

    #4 SERPBook
    [​IMG]

    SERPBook is one of the most accurate Rank Trackers out in the market. It also offers a try before you buy the system (which requires no credit card). SERPBook and Moz are similar as there is no offline installation required, everything is hosted and stored on the cloud.

    Focus Feature 1:
    The analytics section of SERPBook displays reports in graphs and charts that make for an easier interpretation of complex data. Gives a very detailed and comprehensive report of the ranking keywords and also shows the change in ranking positions over days, weeks or months.

    Focus Feature 2:

    You can use it to handle your keywords according to categories so that there is no hassle involved in sorting and keeping a check on them.

    Focus Feature 3:
    Use this tool to share a category with your client. Additionally, keywords can be searched live to see their respective positions.

    Data Presentation:

    The reports can be exported in White Label PDF Format, or you can also export in Excel.CSV files.
    Cost Factor: You can start off with a 14 day Trial License, but the setback is it doesn?t allow for unlimited keyword tracking and prices drastically increase for larger keyword databases. Also, it has a monthly recurring payment model. To use this software to its maximum potential, you will need to purchase a plan best suited to your need.

    #5 Pro Rank Tracker

    [​IMG]

    This software is based on a slightly different model than all the others in the list, but it was a well-rounded experience. There are 8 different versions, which includes the free (limited in all aspects) version.

    Focus Feature 1:
    All the other versions except for the free version are campaign based, and you can select the right version for you depending on the amount of keyword database you might have. Really scalable and the Last 2 Versions ? namely Api30k and Api15k support API Access.


    Focus Feature 2:
    Pro Rank Tracker also offers video rank checking. And we all know how important that is in the modern world.

    Data Presentation:
    All versions except free version offer white label branding, and there are unbranded reports, rank change notifications as well as daily checks. You can export data in any format you desire.

    Cost Factor:

    Like I mentioned before, there are 8 different versions. Pricing starts from $15 for 250 terms and goes up to $500 for 30k terms with API Access. So, you can see that Pro Rank Tracker offers great flexibility as far as pricing goes.

    So, make your call now. Also, let me know if you tried any other Ranking Software that you thought should be added to this list. Each of the software mentioned above have their own positives and negatives, still I find that SERPBook and Moz are a bit expensive considering the advantages that they provide.

    Let me know if you found this comparison useful. Thanks!

    I appreciate your thread. Congratulation for your work. I was working 2 of the mentioned Trackers but now I'm with another one that is good as well, I will not mention here.
    From my point MOZ should be even on 5th place because they drop this part a lot and they try to focus in the authority side.

    You have a cold beer from Madrid :)

    You forgot MicroSiteMaster

    They let you track the rankings of a site on the top 100 as well as the whole SERP's top 20. This way, you can view the results of Google Algo changes.
