Advanced Web Ranking makes generating site-ranking reports easy: let's face it, checking your Web site position is a very time consuming task.

For example, if you have 10 keywords that you want to monitor, and you want to check the top 20 positions for 10 search engines, you need to perform about 200 (10 keywords * 10 engines * first 2 pages) individual searches to get the results. Then you need to compare the results one by one to find where your site is positioned. It may take you days to complete this task if you do this manually. That's where Advanced Web Ranking comes to help.Advanced Web Ranking is able to query more...

This used to be the best SEO software on the Mac platform. Unfortunately the latest versions have been nothing but trouble with tech support being less than helpful. I've encountered three different problems in a row that have prevented me from using the software for several weeks. Since I can't even open the software I used to use regularly I'm not able to review the latest features.

If you are responsible for determining the effectiveness of content and SEO campaigns, you must have a tool like this to determine what is working and what is not. To determine a sites search engine ranking for multiple keywords would take many hours routinely to create an informative history. Comparatively, the price for this tool is a bargain.

BumbleB is correct about the UI being Java-ish and not an ideal Mac environment. On the other hand, it is not that bad. This is not the kind of app you would spend a lot of time working in. Ideally, you set it up to do it's thing automatically then open it from time to time to see the results and print reports for your clients. In fact, I personally don't run it from my Mac anymore, rather I installed it on my CentOS web server for that very reason.

I wrote a longish blog post about my use-case. Check out my profile for a link to my site if you'd like to read more.

The UI is very busy, and very JAVA-Windows-like, which is the only factor that counts against this otherwise fine app.

It has automatic, scheduled checking of rankings. The app does not even need to be open for it to check rankings every day. Then weekly you open it up and see rankings for the whole week.

It is project based, meaning you can check your competitors when checking yourself, or check all your websites in one project, with one schedule, etc.

And the search engine algorithm subscription is considerably cheaper for AWR than its competitor Rank Tracker.

If I didn't have a license for SERank, I'd buy this one!

Yes, but VSE Be Found is a Classic app. It is true that VSE solicits interest in an OS X upgrade on its site, but it's a jike.

Great program. This has really sped up the way i find my position. I hope they continue to develop it.

A good next step would be an optimizer and html analizer.

All this app does is show your ranking on various selected searchengines, with different keywords. It does nothing else. It does not optimize your website, like VSE Be Found.
There's a free app WebranX. Isn't as fancy as Advanced Webranking, but does the same trick.

AWB ranking is slow because it's build with Java.

It is slow on Java because Apple's Java RTE sucks in speed. Scary considering how much they used to tout Java being the next thing and all, and even moreso having WebObjects based upon Java.

Java is not slow, Java on Mac is.


Webrankx is so unstable on 10.3.9 that I have yet to get it to complete a search for a single keyword :(


In response to the poster Stimpy,

WebranX is a very cheap imitation of Advanced Web Ranking 6.2. I downloaded and installed the application and the first screen that pops up gives a 404 Not Found error looking for /site/applicazione.php

Then 10 seconds into running my first ranking report, the software crashes.

Pretty poor first impression. I immediately deleted it from my hard drive.

Moving on to AWR 6.2... The word "Advanced" is part of its name for a reason. Having the ability to generate highly detailed and customizable reports is essential to SEO professionals who need to supply their clients with more data than just the basics.

The ability to check rankings across all the international versions of Google, Yahoo and MSN Live search is a godsend for me as I have international clients who don't care as much what their Google.com rankings are as Google.co.uk, Google.co.in, etc.

Uploading reports direct to a web server or supplying through email is a time saver, and thus a money saver.

The one drawback I have noticed with the software so far is the time it takes to check rankings. My last update included 10 keywords across 40 different search engines for one URL, and it took about 5 hours. If you aren't pressed for time and can run the app in the background, no big deal I guess.

I have yet to come across software cheaper than AWR 6.2 that provides the same range of data and helpful tools.

program hangs several times in panther. didnt want to restart again either. way too slow. and im not sure what its doing? is it ranking me, or telling me where I rank? it was unclear. :(

I literally left it running all night and most of the day... to finally finish.. whatever it was doing.

VSE Be Found 2.7 is a better program, and more what im looking for, but not for osx yet.

I had a cold sales call yesterday from a company that provided this service and said they would help increase 8 of 20 keywords in the search engines. Their cost was $3,000/year. Just for the reporting side of things, this application is a great deal.

I bought this application a while ago, and speaking from experience, I find it really useful. And it has a good price too.

Keep up the good work guys, and don't listen to these anonymous cowards!
