    I'm planning on giving away a free (but limited) membership away to 500 BHW members to my keyword ranking checker (Yup, coded it myself :D), but I have a problem.

    Basically, my server can only do ranking checks for so many keywords but I wanted to offer an upgrade option that allows unlimited keywords/websites.

    Heck, I would like to offer the unlimited version for free, but simply can't due to server costs. I was planning on giving an encoded script to those that purchased the unlimited version, and they put it on their server to check their own keywords, but to see stats log in to my main site.

    What do you guys think about this? I also planned on having 3 levels:

    Free - 1 Website To Check and 10 Keywords
    Silver - 5 Websites To Check 30 Keywords Per Site
    Gold - 10 Websites To Check 50 Keywords Per Site
    Unlimited OTO - Unlimited Websites, Unlimited Keywords (Just have to host the keyword checker yourself/and possibly set up a cron job to mail you your reports)

    Oh yeah all accounts just add their website/keywords and it automatically checks them every day/emails them a report(this option can be used only on selected sites, or turned all the way off). I also added some pretty little flash graphs to show keyword ranking history:

    heres a screeshot:

    As you can see the UI needs a bit of work, but don't worry it's gonna be TIGHT :D

    Also, this isn't intended to be an ad or anything, I would just like some opinions. Also question to mods, since this is a free site that offers upgrades would I need to post this in the BST section when launching it?

    Thanks Guys!

    No problem guys, as we speak I'm integrating it into BFM(butterfly marketing). I designed my own custom user management system, but coding my own viral affiliate marketing script wouldn't be the best use of my time at the moment.

    I'm fairly sure that i'll have post it in the BST section, so look for it there soon.

    As of now it only does the most important search engine(google :p), but im working on the others after I get full functionality and pretty UI with google.

    Would you guys be ok with having to install a script/cron that does the actual checking then reports the stuff back to the site DB, and you can login there and view your stats/get emailed your stats.

    Also, what do you guys think would be the best price policy?

    I was thinking:

    Free - 1 Website & Check and 10 Keywords - Price: FREE :)
    Silver - 5 Websites & Check 30 Keywords Per Site - Price: 3 day free trial, then $5/mon
    Gold - 10 Websites & Check 50 Keywords Per Site - Price: 3 day free trial then $15/mon.
    Unlimited OTO - Unlimited Everything: Price: 3 day free trial, then $25 mon.
    * I'll install the extra script/cron if your not sure how, or i'll make a bot where you enter your cpanel username/password and ftp details, and it does it automatically if many people want this option/cant do it.

    This is just the first of many scripts im writing, i've already finished about 8 more and i'm currently beta testing them.

    This ones been tested for a month now with different things, and im just integrating it into the BFM user system which is surprisingly easy.

    I'm also going to give automatic upgrades for referring friends :D for those that want to stay free, silver, or gold. I will also allow you to have an unlimited membership for referring a certain amount of people :D.

    Plus you'll get residuals. Wow, i sound like one of those hypey marketers, I should stop now :D

    But feel free to make any suggestions/ideas and i'll implement ASAP :)

    The only problem i see is there's already tons of programs that can be downloaded for free, that do the same thing only way more advanced. So unfortunately i can't see anyone paying for it.

    Maybe you might be better off making it totally free so it gets popular, then monetizing it with ads and affiliate links for SEO products/services.

    There are a few out there but the ones I have tried are not very accurate. If yours was accurate I would like to try it out.

    Not email, there's no need because the program runs on your system so it automatically saves the customized reports in these formats every day when the scheduled task runs:

    Not accurate! Wonder how they figured that would be useful! :p

    Mine's been accurate everytime i've checked it, but you have to remember that there are many different datacenters, and they update every second (although not drastically unless you view the 100-1000 positions :))

    ahh... Well personally I like seeing my stats via email :p

    But offering it for free, or cheaper is an option.

    What program is that?
    When I said there not accurate I mean they do not update enough so the rankings are a couple of days old.

    ahh... I see :)

    Well you can expect updates every day :)

    Plus other features that will be useful for self seo...

    Thats a program that will take up space on your HD and ram rather than sit on your server and do things without hassling you :p

    Yeah, I was going to use my custom user management but changed my mind. I'm now porting my script into the Butterfly Marketing Script.

    Don't worry I'm working as fast as possible :)

    Yeah, it will be on my server except for unlimited accounts I believe.

    I think that due to the server resources needed to do 1000 members a day * 20 Websites * 100 Keywords would be crazy :D

    So i'm going to give a part of the script that does the checking to customers that is encoded, and gets their reports then they will be emailed that data every day or be able to login and view their stats.
