This app is dead in the water. Looks like the dotcom name has been bought by an internet marketer - clicking the devs link takes you to a pre sell page.

The download link doesn't even work anymore. MacUpdate needs a "report" link to alert admins of issues such as this...

Indeed conceptually nice but haven't yet gotten it to not quit before completing a search. Mac OS 10.3.9 on Powerbook g4 2GM ram and dsl connection.

I'm rating this 5 stars as it relates to the competition -- though it does have some issues. I would love to see more interest in this app.

Webranx is one of the only keyword trackers on the mac. Your only other option (that I know of) to track multiple search engines is Advanced Web Ranking -- a klutzy, interface-confused, but advanced, java app that starts at $59.

Webranx is free -- but I wish it were $15 to $20 and seeing very active development. It's a great app for the independent web developer. I use it to give keyword feedback to clients.

But we need
-fewer crashes
-exportable data (If I could supply my clients w/ an excel spreadsheet or just a nice graph, that'd be swell)
-the ability to update all keywords at once (many, many mouse clicks required in this app)
-the ability to add multiple keywords at once

It has lovely graphs, it's a beautiful interface, I love that it keeps a history, that you can add multiple sites, etc. If they keep at it, they've got this market on the mac.

It is (was) a great software, but then it stopped giving GOOOGLE results and that's very frustrating.

Great Software. Would love to see it improved with ability to click-order columns, regular timed searches and less unexpected quits

What do the "up arrows" mean?

Means that the site is not found in the first 100 results.

So this basically creates a front end to search websites? I can already do that with Sherlock or Watson.

Sherlock will rank results according to the web results anyway, giving you an idea of where your page ranks.

I just don't see what the point of this software is.

Sherlock and Watson are tools to perform a search simultaneously on the top search engines. Webranx instead is a tool to see the rank of a site for a given keyword... not a search engines front end.

Just downloaded this application, and already I don't understand it.

Fine, I input some URL (www.apple.com).

Then, a keyword...what for...well, fine APPL.

Click Go button, and what I get is no chart but all 6 search engines showing up arrows for Apple's Web site. No rankings at all.

Sure, Yahoo and MS are very top ranked, but Apple no way.

Try to change your keyword... maybe you can try with "imac" :-)

um...so have you tried searching for AAPL in a search engine to see if it backs up your claim? apple.com doesn't show up for the keyword search AAPL on google. No surprise there - that's its ticker symbol - how much do you see apple posting their ticker symbol on their site?

Your review is invalid.

The tools results did not match an actual search using the same words. I was thinking #7 on Yahoo. Great. I went to Yahoo typed in the same words and could not find the website.

I downloaded this tool today, and was very happy to find that my website was listed in top 10 on Google for the keyword I am interested in.

But then I searched for "web ranking", and I found Advanced Web Ranking, which also displays a nice graph of how my website ranked over time, and has all sorts of advanced features for this task.

Great to see such great tools developed for the Mac! I think I'm going to buy a tool like this very soon.
