    I'm looking for a service/software to replace Market's Samurai Rank tracker.
    I'm with their paid plan but, it's still in beta, you can't really add urls keywords in a convinient way and they update just once per week, trying to convince the people that's ok....




    What are you using and why?

    I've been using Rank Tracker and I'm happy with it. Even the free version is great. It lets you track your own site + competitor's site and compare the rankings for the two.

    I moved from Market Samurai a few months ago, also had a paid plan. It's slow, not reliable and works shitty.
    Although I'm currently using Traffic Travis 3 (yeah, the old free version), it's just because I'm looking out for only four authority sites which are currently in my focus, and it's more then enough for me to keep track of the progress.

    But for bigger projects I would definitely recommend http://www.serpbuddy.com/, it has some nice features, it's fast and also reliable.

    I gave up on client-side rank trackers. Too slow and clumsy. Now I pay for serpbook.com and it's just so much easier, plus I can check my SERPs from anywhere. They are also very cheap.

    Rank Tracker for the win. Good for large projects and many of them. I use it for about 100 live projects , about 30 kw's each and it never gave me a hiccup. 95% the results are spot on.

    Oh oh what I see there?

    A "Sign up" button on SERPbook sales, I just pressed the back button =).

    For Rank Tracking I highly recommend Traffic Travis, TT is awesome there is inanchor, intitle feature too, I just fill the keywords and I know how much competition there is or how strong it is :D

    Funniest thing is that I had free version, then support sent me a license key for pro version for no reason ahaha.

    Raven tools is what the pros use (Dan Thies, Leslie Rhode) I don't think there is anything better.

    Don't go with serpbuddy.com
    They don't update rankings for 2 days and tell claim that it updates every hour or so.

    I use www.serpfox.com
    The tracking is very accurate and they even let you track 10 keywords for free! Watch closely on the sign up form for the free sign up link.

    Rank tracker scares me. Google has stated in their guidlines that they do not like you using automated ranking checker. Then they have your ip and can relate it to your site. After using rank tracker google temporarily cuts out my search engine and states my IP has temporarily been banned from search. With the penguin and all google may use this as a way to cut your rankings.

    Ive been using Rank Tracker too with zero problems, but seeing this now gives me pause. I've been meaning to look into a new backup system anyways.
