    Has anyone used either Stats Junky or the new Tracking 202 Pro? I am looking for the most comprehensive, easy to use, tracking software and these are the only 2 that I can find that will pull your stats from the CPA networks and match things up with your PPC stats automatically. But Tracking 202 Pro is a lot more expensive and I can't tell why.

    Anybody use either Stats Junky or Tracking 202 Pro? Or have a recommendation for another tracking software that lets you avoid the
    need for spreadsheets? thx.

    StatsJunky scrapes your stats from your accounts.

    Tracking202 PRO Uses the search engines API for the stats it aquires.

    The API will be more accurate as your account scraped stats can be a little off as it will screw up your overall AVERAGE cpc.

    But everytime you pull from googles API you get charged. For 1000 Keywords it is 25 Cents.

    May not seem like a lot but it can add up when you start getting some campaigns cranked out.

    Also, stats junky plans to offer API pulls in the NEAR future I think.

    I am going with statsjunky as the better of the two, mainly because of price and I like desktop apps as well, which stats junky is!

    If your not already making money from ppc, I would recommend just using the free tracking202 version. Get your feet wet, see if its for you then upgrade.

    .... I would imagine though once StatsJunky starts pushing out API calls to Google, they're gonna start passing that along to the user, .... in which case StatsJunky is more expensive, and doesn't give "searched" keyword, as well as bid keyword.

    Its only one missing feature, ... but its a BIGGIE!!!

    it looks like they've put a lot of work into it...however it scrapes pretty poorly on my EPN and amazon accounts. i think it needs some work.
