    I would like some suggestions on search engine rank tracking software - be it desktop software or online services.

    The software needs to cater for multiple urls, and multiple keywords - and be fast as well. Catering for 100 or so urls , with about 2-3 keywords each.

    I have tried SEOpowersuite's rank tracker - but would like something that has more of a dashboard feel rather than each url on its own.

    Something that can also accept imports of the URLs and keywords would be good - but top priority is an overall dashboard that kinda lists the urls, the keywords, and their position within the 3 main search tools (google, yahoo and bing) If the tool does only Google - that would be fine as well.

    Something that can show historic ranking would also be good - and that graphs it appropriately (i.e. the ranking position over time)

    Any suggestions would be welcome

    Thanks

    The best free one that can do 5 different urls is Traffic Travis

    But you can also change out urls too. Plus the whole dash board and management is really simple to use.

    Traffic Travis is good - but I need something that can do volume. I did like the usability of the tool though

    Will check out SERPBuddy now.

    Also found another BHW post suggesting Rankcheckerace (cant find the post now) - I'm trying it out now - and it certainly can do the volume of urls Im looking for - but Im not so convinced on the user interface for now - let me play around with it a bit more - maybe I have pre-judged it.

    Thanks for the replies

    What do you mean by Traffic Travis "cannot do volume"?

    I am using Traffic Travis and it is quite good in terms of rank tracking. You can add unlimited projects with the Pro version. For each project, you can track unlimited keywords.

    i like Serpfox, its update keyword ranking a few times in a day. And much faster than serpbook when tracking new added keywords, free account can track 10 keywords. In terms of accuracy, its much the same with serpbook

    Is there a way to make Traffic Travis update daily? I use Serpfox and it checks 2,000 KWs multiple times a day, but is $99/month. I've purchased Traffic Travis PRO + 70 shared IPs but it seems to only update once a week. Am I missing something?

    Ok - so after investigating a few of the Paid and free versions - both desktop and online - I have decided to stick with
    Rankcheckerace for now.
    Main reason: Its free for about 1000 keywords - which can be spread across however many urls you have.
    For now this is sufficient for me - the visual display is not the best but it can import urls and keywords which was a blessing for me

    It also seems to update daily - and sends me a ranking report email (daily or I think you can set it)
    Not related or affiliated to the site - just want to share when there are tools that can help us in our daily IM world.

    Thanks for all the suggestions

    I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, plus the free version is limited in terms of volume of keywords, etc. Check out AnalyticsSEO. I use it and am very happy with it. You can connect it to GA and GWT and it can basically aggregate recommendations for GWT issues, GA traffic, site health / competitive opportunities, etc. I wish Raven still had KW tracking, because their GUI dashboard was nice and simple to give you just about everything at a quick glance.

    Yes you can put the setting to check daily on traffic travis. You have to get in the settings for each campaign to do this. You can do daily,every three days,wekkly and then monthly. You can add proxies, control how many results it checks. It is good.

    I spend like $8/month for 50 KW on SERPbook. Finds the first link in SERPS for a domain and updates routinely. I like it so far.
