    What kind of features do you want to see in an online rank tracker?

    No idea is too far fetched, and all input is very much appreciated!

    Here is what my idea of the what the perfect rank checker would be:

    Auto checking at time intervals that I set from my account:
    Rank check of all big 3 search engines:
    Urls to share with our clients so they can see there own ranking:
    Keep track of new backlinks using our backlink account api's:
    Mobile app to alert me of major serp changes:
    Alerts to notifiy me when the system is picking up abnormal amount of links coming in. Let me explain this a bit,
    Lets say I have a website that I built links to, I would then input a list of all the links I build to said website into the online tracker, but when the tracker starts noticing new links outside of what Ive told the system Ive personally built, it would send out emails to me with the urls so that I could further investigate whether some prick is starting a negative seo campaign against one of my clients. This again, I think could work with us as the users inputing our api's from majestic etc.

    Im sure I could add to this further, but to me this would be the dream tracker.

    Great ideas! I agree with all of these, and have taken note of them. Thank you for taking the time to write that out. I will contact you about beta testing this service when it is closer to launch if you are interested.

    Check out myseotool dotcom
    I've heard it doesn't function great but it gives you flexibility on how to provide ranking reports to your clients. Only downside is the cost, it's so damn expensive.

    I love mikeydell's ideas, specifically
    whitelabel url
    user set interval tracking
    mobile app (!!!)

    I could only dream up having a difficulty tracker like a cpc, or serpIQ,
    so that clients could see how big competition is.

    High-valued pricing is one of our main focuses, and I believe you will be pleased with the pricing setup we plan to use. I have PM'ed you a bit more info.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I will look into this site and scrutinize their features.

    We already have a few of those ideas in development, and will begin to work on the rest. I like your idea of having a competition tracker. It would be helpful for both clients and individual site owners.

    PM'ed you.

    I built a rank tracking web app a few months back when I first began learning how to code and the problem I ran into is Google just returned weird results a small portion of the time. So my suggestion is to make sure you're able to get accurate, consistent results all the time before worrying about other features. Many of the rank trackers out there now aren't always accurate.

    Also an option for instant updates would be good too. I don't think there are any trackers that offer that. Email notifications, white label reports, and a flexible API are all good features to also consider.

    "Keep track of new backlinks using our backlink account api's:" i like this this idea . We can understand which backlinks work and which doesnt.

    @OP : I have a great idea but i'm not sure it would be suitable for you.

    RANK TRACKER SMARTY

    A smart rank tracker which read the SERP changes and try to connect to a backlink increase / decrease / discount event and Even with ON site SEO change ..

    If you do so, i can safely say that you would be the leader in the area.

    With all the statistics collected through time accross all websites you track, you can go even further.

    It should be able to be done through Ahrefs API or even the webmaster tools one (if any).


    You publish such rank tracker, make sure to PM me, i'll be your customer!

    It would help to get stats from different Google datacenters, I am not sure how the current ones do it but they may affect the results.

    Thanks for the input. Of course, accuracy is one of our main priorities so we have done a lot of testing. We have a feature in development that will be similar to instant updates.

    Thank you for the input. We will take this into consideration.

    Hi HostStage,

    We have actually have a feature that we plan to develop that will be very similar to this. I will take your suggestions into consideration for the development of this feature. I may even contact you in the future for some more input in getting this developed. Thanks for the great recommendation!

    Great idea. I'm adding it to the list, and will explore it further.

    OOOH! Also, can you list all keywords that I may not even know about?

    That's got to be a huge feature to implement, but I remember when ahrefs would show you some terms you didn't even know about in their KW tracker tool.

    Is that even possible? To show every top10 KW? Maybe Agency level?
    Probably wishful thinking....

    Another suggestion if you will: proxy assignment per keyword track/per group.

    Say I had a client who was from Lincoln Nebraska, but the server running the script was in NYC. Obviously to show localized ranking, i'd need a proxy that can simulate a call from somewhere local to Lincoln, not nyc. Otherwise, the counts would be all off.
