    Please help to decide between the two!

    After doing a lot of SEO the ghetto way, I'd like to take on more offline clients... and for this I need to look more professional, as well as organize shit more efficiently. As far as I know WebCEO and IBP are the 2 products dominating this market...

    The MAIN features I'm interested are the following:

    1. SERP Tracking / Reporting (This is by far the most important, pretty graphs and private label reports is a HUGE plus)
    2. Website SEO Analysis Reporting
    3. Project Managing & Scheduling (keep track of things that were done & things to do)
    4. Backlinks analysis to see what's indexed, etc
    5. No recurring payments for above listed features! I believe both of the "professional/business" versions of IBP & WebCEO have the above 4 listed features included for a 1 time license activation?

    Yes - IBP is probably the best for what you seek. The Business version enables you to export the report into a WORD file which you can
    then edit and stick your own logo on. etc. etc.

    One report delivered = $450 minimum

    I bought WebCEO, but returned it because the SEO report blasted me for not having any dashes in my URl. This was a #1 ranked URL for it's keyword and they complained about a bunch of things, but I stopped looking after the first one said I should get some dashes in my url "-".

    I contacted support and they quoted stuff from big G saying that dashes are better than underscores, so they read it to mean EVERYBODY needs dashes. Clearly they are having a hard time with the English language.

    I don't know/care what other problems the lack of understanding has introduced into the software, they were not receptive to my discussion and but were happy to refunded my purchase price. Go figure. ???

    Buyer beware, try contacting support and ask them this same question.

    Do anyone know how much the "Free Search Technology Updatesâ„¢ for 3 months." will cost after the 3 month period?

    Can I track client's website positions in the SERP for given keywords? Is it easily extractable to be presented to the client, or email every month...?

    If it does have the feature to track/report SERP positions.. does it do it everyday on its own, or do I have to run an update everyday like in Market Samurai in order to generate a decent positions vs time graph to present?

    Evey time I think what one SEO software can do than the other can not.

    It is very difficult.

    IBP says it gives you the first position in google.. but YOU NEED TO DO ALL JOB...

    I use WebCEO for about 3 years and it can do the job you want.
    Recenty there is a problem with scheduled SERPs tracking, when you have many (500+) keywords :(
    Don't know how it looks in IBP

    I have WebCeo free edition.
    In fact, I don't know what is the difference between paid version, but it is sure you have something less.

    In fact, I believe they could show you some videos about webceo software... to get a better use. They try to sale a "University of SEO". But I believe we can find something for free.

    From webceo website:

    Another thing that looks good, it is less expensive than IBP.

    Hmm.. so far I was leaning towards IBP... the scheduled SERP tracking however is kind of important to me, and I couldn't find any info on whether I would be able to do that with IBP business edition?

    Like I mentioned, I don't need the software to do the ranking job for me (yes, it's a benefit) - I need it most importantly for reasearch (SERP and links) and organization (scheduling & keeping track of project details / to do lists)... everything else is a bonus

    I like IBP. Havent tried WEBCeo though so cant make a comparison. As stated IBP will tell you what you have to do to be no1 in the SERPs, its just up to you to do it.

    The reports it spits out are very friendly and professional.

    The fact that it was free from BHW HERE is a total bonus ;) Its version 11.6. A few people have said they cant change the reports around, and I had this problem. After messing about with the reports a bit I got it to work though.

    If I choose 1 keyword and make everything that software ask...

    Now I am in the first page in Google (just a simulation)

    --

    If I want to get better position in a 2nd KEYWORD.. will I need to lose my work with the first word?

    Or Will I need to insert one HTML file inside somewhere and adjust it to Google bots?
