As you may know, there are many different types of rank trackers ranging from SerpBook, SerpLab, and other keyword checkers.

SB-R-T is a one-off payment compared to others which have a monthly fee.

I was wondering if anyone uses Scrapbox Rank Tracker on a consistent basis? If you have what's your opinion on it - in terms of effectiveness and accuracy compared to other rank checkers?

I've been using it for quite some time now and it does the job well. However, you can never expect any tool to be 100% accurate in what it gives you.

Just keep in mind that SERPs change according to the proxy location.

Serpbook and others allow you to say what google version should be queried.

Scrapebox of course runs on your PC or a VPS, so you control what google you query and if your proxy is in Europe you'll see different SERPs from USA or China.

You need very good proxy in order to get some ranking. I suggest you can just use serplab. It's cheap and accurate enought

Good point. But in comparisons to other similar rank-tracking tools, would you say it's just as good?

Another good point. That would give +1 to SB since proxies are controllable while other services aren't.

Serplab is cheap but SR-R-T is even cheaper.

Serplab: (minimum) $5 * 12 (months) = $55 (USD)
Scrapebox Rank Tracker: one off $20 (USD) (unlimited keywords), +/- proxy quality. Which is still cheaper overall if the only cost is decent proxies.

Scrapebox Rank Tracker is not excellent but good enough. It gets the job done and worth the price you pay for.

Isn't the best tracker, but helps a lot, and is worth for the money.

The 2nd poster said you can never expect complete accuracy and that is because there is no such thing, I say that because you can vary results all over the place with results. I wrote about it here:
http://scrapeboxfaq.com/why-does-ra...ank-then-what-i-see-in-a-browser-or-elsewhere

But the short answer is I have used the scrapebox rank tracker for years and its consistent and does a good job.

I understand that no rank tracker is fully accurate but wouldn't your opinion be pretty biased since you're like the creator or part of the SB team (no offense intended with tone)?

That was what I was thinking but I wanted a general overview before purchasing it. I know it's not that much but I wanted some feedback beforehand.

Scrapebox rank tracker works just fine. I paid $25 (was it $25? about that) for it when Scrapebox 64 bit came out a couple of years ago and it'w worked very well ever since. Yeah IP counts. So factor for that. Or use a service that has IP choices. I check around 5,000 keywords over a month on Scrapebox using 20 proxies. Costs me nearly nothing as I already have private proxies for other purposes. 5,000 keywords on a decent service is going to cost me a fortune. Cheapest I could find from a reliable service was $147 a month or $1499 per year as a one off payment for that number of keywords.

So it might depend on the scale. The number of keywords you track,

The issue with any desktop/server apps is that it will depend on your location and if you want to grab another state/country you'd have to get solid proxies that work properly. One time + ongoing proxies (if you want different locations etc)

Thread Cowved? What a strange thing to say :p

Its not meant as what the cow is, but what it says. Cows say "moo" so the thread is "moo"ved. :)

That was what I was thinking but I wanted a general overview before purchasing it. I know it's not that much but I wanted some feedback beforehand.

The premise of my post was my write up of why rank trackers are as accurate as they can be and most people have a misconception of how SERPs work, and that applies to 100% of rank trackers.

The fact that I use scrapebox and tout it is not biased because I am Not part of the team and I do Not work for them. I am an expert user sure, I love scrapebox sure, when I was broke scrapebox helped me make a lot of money, sure. I didn't want scrapebox to die as a project as so many SEO tools do/did, sure. So I tried donating money, they said no. So I said well hmmm how can I help?

Well I watched and they spent all day answering the same questions in the sales thread, its still here on BHW, go read it, you can see. So I started making videos to save them time so they could develop and everyone wins.

That was 9 years ago and you may think I work for them because I made so many videos, but the truth is that tons of the stuff in scrapebox was added at my request. It was like having my own personal programmer for free, and the license was cheap, why would I not support it in every way possible? They still add features at my request, the most recent update has stuff I asked for, why? Because that still will help me make money.

Its a win win win.

I support scrapebox with videos and posts etc.. and scrapebox wins because they don't have to do that work and answer the same question like a broken record. I win because I get features at my request and I use those to make money. I further win because people see my videos -which will hit 1 million views this year - and then people come to me and there are a select few I wind up working with in 1 capacity or another and so I make more money. Same as anyone else putting out content.

The last win is the community, people get help they need, which makes me feel good. People tell me all the time they appreciate what I do, its nice. :) But then because of it they tell their friends and their friends by scrapebox and people buy plugins, which takes us back to the first win, where Scrapebox makes money and they win.

So its a perfect circle.

So being an avid user doesn't make me bias, if anything it lets me give an accurate opinion because I have tested the software to death. Trust me, when there is new beta stuff, they give it to me and I try and break it, which is good for everyone.

At any rate, everyone else in this thread says the same thing and I was most posting to give the link, but since we are here, there you go.


Lastly on the notes of ips, with the google october 2017 update where google displays results from the country that the ip is from not from the google you put in, thats important.

That means if you have a France IP and you put in to check google.co.uk your going to get results from google.fr not google.co.uk. Or thats how it works in a browser.

The rank tracker in scrapebox found a way to get around that so you get what you put in.

However as noted above, getting some good ips or at least 1 proxy/ip from the geographic location that you want to rank track for is going to be ideal.

You can typically use a 60 delay and stop at 100 results and use 100 results and connections at 1 and then use 1 ip and rank track a good bit of keywords daily without having to worry about ip bans.

I do not rank track 5000 keywords daily like @Scritty does, but even 20 proxies, I mean you can get that for $20 give or take, (probably shared proxies are fine, probably dont' need dedicated, but maybe, you can try. I use shared) is way less then the $147 he talks about.

But yes ips from the geo local you want to rank track is the most ideal way to go about it.

Yes, I do use SBRT and it works just fine. I like the fact that you can update the ranking whenever you like, and that is a good feature, as sometime I feel I just need to refer to the ranking ASAP.
I have over 10 projects that are being tracked by the plugin, and so far it is working great.
Just that there are some time when the Yahoo or Bing tracking were broken - just message their support, and it usually gets updated within a week (or days if it is an easy fix)

StormProxies has rotating proxies that pass Google and also let you pick your location. In case anyone needs a good rotating proxy provider, been using them for years now.

I also took that into consideration. Overall SB-R-T seems like the best-cost effective option out of all the rank trackers. It might be the best overall but I can't say without trying it out.

The issue with any desktop/server apps is that it will depend on your location and if you want to grab another state/country you'd have to get solid proxies that work properly. One time + ongoing proxies (if you want different locations etc)

Yeah, if the only thing that someone has to pay for is the proxies after the one time payment, it's well worth it.

My bad. I thought you were at least part of the SB team since most, if not all the videos were created from you.
Thanks for your input. It's much appreciated.

I've heard good things about them. Might give them a try.

What does the cow say?
