Reviewing SEO Powersuite Rank Tracker

SEO Powersuite’s Rank Tracker not only tracks rankings but it also tracks all of the hows and whys of the ranking along with reports.

Rank Tracker

Step 1: You enter the URL of the website that you want to track.

Step 2: You connect Rank Tracker with Google Analytics and Google Search Console

The first thing it has you do in the tutorial is to create an account with Rank Tracker. The first thing I noticed is that it asks you to set up the website and connect Google Analytics and Google Search Console. DIIB is the only SaaS (software as a service) that I came across so far that does this. I like the fact they are doing this because it brings all of the info into one place without having to log into multiple places to get the full story and lets you compare the stats to bring you ideas.

DIIB, however, has the upper hand on this because you can also hook up Google My Business in addition to Google Analytics and Google Search Console.

Step 3: You enter in the keyword phrases you want it to track. The software supplies you with keyword phrases already that it found in Google Analytics and Google Search Console. I had already done keyword research for this company so let’s see how it compares.

If you ever want to check the rankings of some keyword phrases and don’t want to use up the resources of your online paid SaaS then I would recommend using Small SEO Tools. With the smaller packages of SaaS that only allow you a certain amount of searches forcing you to upgrade to use the more of the tool this is a lifesaver! You can enter ten keyword phrases at a time here. I searched for about 180 keyword phrases before the image captcha kicked in. A few hundred more searches were done from me and the captcha never came back.

A quick little side test. How accurate is the search volume for Small SEO Tools when compared to Moz which I have researched and found to be very accurate?

Here are the results below:

Keyword Moz Min Volume Moz Max Volume Small SEO
Tools Volume
knives 70801 118000 0
benchmade knives 30301 70800 33100
case knives 30301 70800 40500
throwing knives 11501 30300 40500
knifeworks 9301 11500 8100
chef knives 6501 9300 33100
custom knives 6501 9300 12100
steak knives 6501 9300 12100
ceramic knives 4301 6500 8100
cobratec knives 4301 6500 2400

As you can see ‘knives’ is searched for zero times! I have seen this on some other online tools as well. They must use the same API when generating numbers. One thing for sure is Google AdWords Planner search volume is REALLY off! The numbers are close but not really close, so take their search volume numbers with a grain of salt.

Now what I would really like to see is something that checks the rankings over time along with the estimated number of searches over time. When I have a client for over one year I re-run the numbers to make sure each keyword phrase is still searched for often enough. I have discovered that trends can make some of the keyword phrase searches change. Not many times but enough to take notice.

So, I combined the keyword research I have done along with the keyword phrases discovered by SEO Powersuite (really from Google Analytics and Google Search Console) and got rid of the keyword phrases that I do not want to try and rank for and that is not relevant. For example, ‘knife up’ is an outdoor magazine and ‘knives out’ is a movie would not fetch a high conversion rate.

Step 4: For step 4 you get to choose the search engines to add both mobile and non-mobile versions.

Finished Dashboard: The finished dashboard below shows some nice options.

You get to see the rankings over time (everything from 1 week to 3 years), what you rank in each search engine, SERP (search engine results pages) Analysis, Visibility, Organic Traffic, and Keyword Difficulty.

Once these stats populate after some time I will come back and review how accurate and useful these items are.

It appears that the SEO Powersuite Rank Tracker does more than track rankings…

Under the column Target Keywords, we also have # of searches, visibility, and what page you rank on, SERP Analysis, Organic Traffic, SERP Features, and Keyword Difficulty.

Keyword Research found Within Rank Tracker

Under the column Keyword Research, we have the ability to see what keyword phrases are ranked for a specific website. Which includes all of the data for the keywords they rank for.

They have something called Keyword Gap where it lets you know which keyword phrases they rank on that you don’t and what keyword phrases you share in rankings.

Google Search Console data is displayed as well which shows the keywords, number of clicks to the website, impressions, click-through-rate (CTR), average rank, top page, and keyword difficulty.

SEO Powersuite Google Search Console

Under Keyword Planner, you can get more keyword phrase ideas. I use this as one of my sources for finding keyword phrases in my keyword research so it is nice to see it here. It also gives you all of the data that is associated with Google AdWords.

Another nice surprise is Google Autocomplete. This is another source I use when I do my keyword research manually where I get keyword phrase ideas from. With this tool, I don’t have to manually search, copy, and paste what I find into my spreadsheet.

Another nice surprise is that this tool looks up ‘related searches’ in the search engines which is another thing that I do manually. This would save me a lot of time from searching, copying, and pasting the data into my spreadsheet. This also gives you all of the data that goes with it.

No way! This tool also gives you related questions as well! I usually go to a free site like Answer the Public to find questions related to my keyword research. By answering questions related to your topic on your website you increase the odds of building website authority, traffic, and additional rankings. All of the stats for these questions such as visit, difficulty, etc. are included.

TF-IDF Explorer? Never heard of this one but it returns the most meaningful and frequently used keywords that your top-ranking competition uses. It grabs this data from Google AdWords I found out.

There is also a tool called Keyword Combinations that create new keyword ideas for you that brings up lists of mixed keywords, combined keywords, and misspellings. This may come up with some new ideas but I do not see it being very effective.

They have a column labeled ‘Keyword Sandbox’ that examines your website and gives you data. It was unclear at first of what it does but this is what their website says about it.

Keyword research takes time, and in most cases you aren’t done with it at one go. So you obviously need a place to conveniently store all your keyword ideas for future and be able to analyze and re-analyze them over and over again.

Well, this is exactly what the new Keyword Sandbox module in Rank Tracker is for!

Essentially this is a place to store all of the keyword phrases that you are researching and gives you the data on how your website does with these keyword phrases. I have created a custom spreadsheet that does this already but it doesn’t auto-populate like this one. I’ll toy around with this one but it looks like it could save me a lot of time.

Competitor Research in Rank Tracker

SEO Powersuite Competition Analysis Domain

Well, I’m not sure if they are trying to overload me or try their hardest to please me. I had this very same software on a windows computer years and years ago. It looks like they keep advancing and improving their software which is really nice to see because when I had this software before it didn’t have a tenth of what it has now.

Basically, this gives you the data shared and unshared with competitors it finds for you to research. when you click on an item in the above table it redirects you to the keyword research part of the software to give you more details. It gives you the option of domain competitors, Topic Competitors, and Top Pages.

Domain Strength Research

Under this section, the software goes over the current status of your website that includes its own grade of your domain, traffic, backlinks, no-follow or follows, how many pages are indexed, social media popularity, and more. This is also viewable on the LinkAssistant.

Generated Reports

The reports that can be generated below also can be set up to compare to previous time periods. These reports can be shared with other members of the team and your customers.

These reports include:

  • Keyword Rankings and Visibility
  • Competition Rankings
  • Keyword Rankings grouped by SE
  • Keyword Rankings grouped by Keyword Groups
  • Ranking History
  • Keyword Research
  • Organic Website Traffic
  • Domain Strength

This is a nice addition that not all services have. I do not believe Mangools has this but Moz does. Moz allows you to custom create the reports to send out while SEO Powersuite you cannot custom create the reports but send them out as they are.

I can customize the report by picking and choosing what to display in the report so that I can customize it to each individual customer that only wants these details or those details.

Conclusion of Rank Tracker

While looking over the software, which I used to own before years and years ago, it was nice to see that they made a ton of improvements.

Although I would not trust the number of searches of the keyword phrases as to being accurate the tools offered in just this one part of the software will save me a lot of time. In my opinion, the numbers it comes up with for how often it is searched for is way lower than what it really is. It is nice to see that they incorporate clicks, impressions, and traffic from Google Search Console which is very accurate to use though.

The difficulty of ranking for each of the keyword phrases I was not impressed with at first (high and n/a popped up) because it pulled its data from Google AdWords so I was about to write it off as being inaccurate but in another area of the software I had actual numbers that the software used and compared it to a trusted source that I deemed accurate.

If you look below you can see how close these numbers match.

The excellent job of tracking your rankings over time is worth the money alone. Moz is starting its own rank tracker that is still in its infancy but will get better over time.

I was blown away at the resources for the keyword research tools. It was like the software knew exactly where I pulled my research from manually and provided it for me in one location that also auto-populated the stats for me instead of having me do it myself.

The competition resource section covers all of the basics but is lacking in some areas such as listing the specific backlinks that point to the website that Moz Open Site Explorer provides. When I checked out the LinkAssistant portion of this SaaS, unfortunately, it was not there either.

The domain strength portion of this software exceeds other SaaS that I used in the past and I will compare it to other SaaS that I will review later. One thing that I really liked is that it shows you how many pages are indexed by each search engine. With the URL I tested I found out that Google only has a small percentage of pages indexed when compared to the other search engines which tell me a major area to work on that will help tremendously that I missed before.

In the reports section of this software, it is laid out nice but I wish that you could create custom reports and add sections manually that you want to be done. With the number of searches per month for each keyword phrase, I would not want to send out that particular report.

For just this one section of the software, I would rate this a solid 9 out of 10.

Interested? Follow the links below.

SEO PowerSuite is available in Free, Professional and Enterprise versions. Six months of search algorithm updates are included in the Professional and Enterprise versions. After the six months expire, search algorithm updates are provided on a paid basis. Depending on the license type and the number of months you pay in advance, the fee can run as low as $8.89/mo.

The maintenance price will probably increase depending upon how much you use it as well, but the total price from what I can find online looks like it is still cheaper than the monthly SaaS (software as a service) out there.

Reviewing SEO Powersuite SpyGlass

SpyGlass is the competition analysis part of SEO Powersuite. It covers all the basics that other SaaS (software as a subscription) and comes with a 30-Day Guarantee. The backlink intersects and comparisons are very similar to Moz’s and make me wonder if they are using their APIs.

Backlink Profile Research

This section of the software you enter in the competitor’s URL and it will output the backlink information that it has. At first glance, you see how many backlinks, how many different domains, DoFollow or NoFollow, c-blocks, etc. that you would expect right away. But what surprised me was that it shows the HISTORY of these backlinks! If you see a very large spike in backlink numbers in a short period of time it triggers Google that this is suspicious and will hurt your rankings. So seeing the history here is a nice glance on whether your competitor’s backlinks are organic or purchased.

Not sure where it gets its data from but it is nice to see the history as soon as I type in a domain. Another nice thing to have the historic data is that this report provides you a list of backlinks that it used to have but do not have anymore. These could be good prospects to look into and get backlinks from. Maybe they took your competitor’s link off of their website because they had a bad experience with them and you could step in!

It also shows you what you would want to find in a competition analysis software. Where the links came from, when, what TLD, what anchor text was used to point to the website, etc.

There is data here that is not provided for by other SaaS services though. I wrote a custom script to determine the frequency of anchor text and put it in a tag cloud for me. Fortunately, this software does this for you already which is nice. Also, the stats are displayed better than other SaaS’s that I have used. With easy to look over graphs and detailed numeric values for every possible scenario.

Your Backlink Profile

Of course, you can enter your own domain to see your backlink profile. I discovered that I can hook up Google Analytics and Google Search Console along with the software to get more accurate results of backlinks. I have not seen that elsewhere yet.

Referral Traffic From Competitors in SpyGlass

This surprised me, I haven’t seen this one yet in Moz, SpyFu, etc. yet. This software keeps track of how much traffic you get from backlinks that you have. You don’t have to write a custom Google Analytics report for that one! After monitoring something like this you can get a better idea of where to grab more backlinks from and what type of mentions bring in the most traffic to your website.

Backlink Comparison Research

This looked suspiciously close to what Moz has. So I looked it up in Moz and although they looked the same the numbers were way different. I wonder if having the ability to hook up Google Analytics and Google Search Console to the backlink results is making the numbers off by the thousands. The total links Moz says has 12,000 more but the total linking domains Moz says it has 43 more domains. Perhaps it was only counting links to the home page? I double-checked and it was not.

This will give a good test for other tools as well.

Linking Domains:

Total Backlinks:

Using the tool only has much smaller results. It looks like Moz’s total backlinks are set far apart from the rest with DIIB being the second. I just exported a .csv file of the largest one, Moz’s, and I am going to do a little testing and checking.

It appears that the reason Moz is so high is that it has multiple mentions in forums online so this may be the accurate one. I did not see any broken links doing testing here and there.

So you will have to make your own judgment on the accuracy of the backlinks using the SEO Spyglass.

Domain Strength Research

The domain strength screen is the same as the other portions of the website.

Under this section, the software goes over the current status of your website that includes its own grade of your domain, traffic, backlinks, no-follow or follows, how many pages are indexed, social media popularity, and more.

Reports Generated from SpyGlass

The reports that can be generated below also can be set up to compare to previous time periods. These reports can be shared with other members of the team and your customers.

These reports include:

  • Backlink Summary
  • Backlink Details
  • Domain Comparison
  • Domain Strength

This is a nice addition that not all services have. I do not believe Mangools has this but Moz does. Moz allows you to custom create the reports to send out while SEO Powersuite you cannot custom create the reports but send them out as they are.

I can customize the report by picking and choosing what to display in the report so that I can customize it to each individual customer that only wants these details or those details.

Conclusion of SEO SpyGlass

SEO Powersuit’s SEO Spyglass seems to be mostly focused on collecting information about the competitor’s backlinks. SpyFu seems to be the only one that also gives you pay per click campaign information.

For my testing in competition analysis and reviewing the SEO Spyglass, the only thing that was missing was pay-per-click data and when compared to the other SaaS services out there, excluding SpyFu, it rates a little better than the others because of its addition of being able to look up the history on all of the backlink data.

I review it a solid 9 out of 10. If it would have data on pay-per-click campaigns of the competitors it would have ranked a 10.

Reviewing SEO Powersuite Website Auditor

The website auditor from SEO Powersuite not only gives you the basic details on how you rank, number of links, etc. it also puts together a few tools that help you generate content and examine your existing content.

Website Auditor Structure Audit

You get to examine your own website for improvement. Here is all that it does.

  • Indexing and Crawlability
    • Server errors, robots.txt, and sitemap
  • Redirects
    • Permanent, Temporary, Canonical, etc.
  • Encoding and Technical Factors
    • Mobile-Friendly, Page Structure, WC3 Checkup
  • URLs
    • Dynamic and Length
  • Links
    • Broken, excessive, DoFollow
  • Images
    • Broken, Missing Alt Tags
  • On-Page
    • Meta information only
  • Localization

With the site audit, it will find server errors, word count, tags, internal and external code resources, count 302 redirects, Find duplicate meta descriptions, count the link on the website internal, external, and click link depth.

Content Analysis Of Your Website

All of the data below can be exported to a .csv file as well if you prefer to input it into a custom report of yours or if you have a dashboard created to import the data into.

Keyword Map and Page Audit

The site-auditor has a keyword map that you can import your keywords from Rank Tracker and it will show you which pages it thinks it relevant too. The Rank Tracker lets you know exactly which pages each keyword phrase ranks for.

Content Editor

With the content editor, you can view all of the details of the page, make the changes for optimizing your page, then export the file so that you can upload it to your website. The Network Solutions shopping cart that I work with on with the client you cannot edit online because their editor is so flawed that it moves the cursor 6 to 10 spaces where it isn’t supposed to be and it is so easy to make a mistake there. That is why whenever I want to edit a page from this particular content editor I do it in Dreamweaver then copy and paste the code online. It is really nice to see that this software has the ability to do the same in case you don’t have something like Dreamweaver to work with.

The software’s content editor also gives you little bits of advice on how to modify the page to help out with the search engines.

TF-IDF from the Website Auditor

The TF-IDF is information retrieval, TF–IDF or TFIDF, short for term frequency-inverse document frequency, is a numerical statistic that is intended to reflect how important a word is to a document in a collection or corpus. I never have seen this in other Softwares or SaaS services. The closest thing that I saw was using a counting tag cloud to try and give you an idea of what the page is about. Unless you incorporate AI Intelligence any system will have flaws in it. Why do you think Google purchased that AI company?

Regardless, this system is a step above any tag cloud system that I saw elsewhere and it lists the keywords and gives you recommendations on which keywords to use to optimize the page with.

Website Auditor Generated Reports

You can generate and send out reports for yourself or the customer here as well. The reports cover a summary, details, and TF-IDF results.

Domain Strength Research

The domain strength screen is the same as the other portions of the website.

Under this section, the software goes over the current status of your website that includes its own grade of your domain, traffic, backlinks, no-follow or follows, how many pages are indexed, social media popularity, and more.

Generated Reports to Share

This gives you generated reports on everything in this section that you can share with your co-workers or the customer. The report includes all of the details that are mentioned above.

This is a nice addition that not all services have. I do not believe Mangools has this but Moz does. Moz allows you to custom create the reports to send out while SEO Powersuite you cannot custom create the reports but send them out as they are.

I can customize the report by picking and choosing what to display in the report so that I can customize it to each individual customer that only wants these details or those details.

Conclusion

Again, I am very impressed with how this software handles everything that a SaaS (software as a subscription) can handle plus give you a little more. With the addition of the IDF-IDF (which I have to admit I never heard of) plus the extra statistics that it shows you, along with the ability to export the stats into a .csv file if you want to organize it differently gives this rating a solid 10 out of 10!

I was expecting to see the backlinks of the competitors here but this portion of the software goes over how you are doing in the link-building campaign, To have it find backlinks for you then you will have to open up the SpyGlass part of the software. This is the competition analysis part of the software.

However, this portion of the software provides you with a service that the monthly subscription-based services do not provide. That is the capability of keeping track of the work you do on obtaining the backlink, results of emailing them with a built-in email marketing campaign, and graph out the results for you. This is a nice option that you do not see very often with other services.

For just this one section of the software, I would rate this an 8.5 out of 10.

The SEO Powersuite program SEO Spyglass seems to be mostly focused on collecting information about the competitor’s backlinks. SpyFu seems to be the only one that also gives you pay per click campaign information.

For my testing in competition analysis and reviewing the SEO Spyglass, the only thing that was missing was pay-per-click data and when compared to the other SaaS services out there, excluding SpyFu, it rates a little better than the others because of its addition of being able to look up the history on all of the backlink data.

I review it a solid 9 out of 10. If it would have data on pay-per-click campaigns of the competitors it would have ranked a 10.

Conclusion of SEO Powersuite

I used to have this software on a windows computer years ago and liked the tools on it but left it to the wayside when I switched to a Mac computer. Back then it was really nice but they updated it so much over the years and improved it that now it is much better. It was good to see that they were keeping up the trends with digital marketing and made improvements to the software.

SEO Powersuite gives you a 30-day money-back guarantee along with a free trial that you can download.

Reviewing SEO Powersuite LinkAssistant

It is very rare that you come across software without a subscription price, but LinkAssistant, which is a part of SEO Powersuite, is one of those software’s. Years ago I had LinkAssistant on my old windows computer and it was pretty good. Years later I revisited the software for my Mac and I was very pleased that they changed the software to be even better and keep up with the marketing trends of the times. Years ago it just had the tools you needed for your digital marketing campaign but now it has suggestions, keeps track of emails, and everything you need for your SEO project.

Prospects to Find and Keep Track Of

The first thing that showed up is ‘Prospects’ where you can list potential linking partners and keep tabs on them. At first, it looked like you have to enter them manually and that it cannot come up with a list for you. You could enter them manually but I found out that the SEO Powersuite SpyGlass version of that does that for you. Check it out below! I haven’t come across a software or SaaS (software as a service) that includes all of these yet. Although, I am still testing.

Send Emails from LinkAssistant

This screenshot shows where it keeps track of emails sent back and forth where you can set up the settings as a template. This is nice that you can keep track of the replies of only these emails in one place.

A Browser that is within LinkAssistant

The browser tab was just that a browser. I guess it’s useful for making it easier to look up contact information so that you don’t have to flip back and forth.

Domain Strength Research

Under this section, the software goes over the current status of your website that includes its own grade of your domain, traffic, backlinks, no-follow or follows, how many pages are indexed, social media popularity, and more. This is also viewable on the Rank Tracker.

Reports from LinkAssistant

The reports here go over how you are doing with your prospects for contacting them and graphs it out for you. Then the next report goes over the stats of the backlinks detailing many things like DoFollow or NoFollow, root domain, country of origin, anchor texts used, c-blocks, etc. The final report that is generated shows the domain strength of the website as detailed above.

This is a nice addition that not all services have. I do not believe Mangools has this but Moz does. Moz allows you to custom create the reports to send out while SEO Powersuite you cannot custom create the reports but send them out as they are.

I can customize the report by picking and choosing what to display in the report so that I can customize it to each individual customer that only wants these details or those details.

Conclusion

I was expecting to see the backlinks of the competitors here but this portion of the software goes over how you are doing in the link-building campaign, To have it find backlinks for you then you will have to open up the SpyGlass part of the software.
