"Evaluations of Search Engine Placement or Position
Search Engine Placement and Position Management Software
WebPosition A shareware program that manages search
engine placements and generates reports showing accurate search engine positions which are
the best bar none. Read T's review of this product
it is a real eye opener if you take promotion seriously and would like to know how to
increase traffic to your web site.
Search Engine Placement or Position Management
Position Agent is the best of these mediocre
online services. The results vary from query to query on the same word in the same
session. I feel this is possibly caused by the actual engine and not the service in this
rankthis.com Rank is definitely a good way to
describe this service! There is a distinct odor coming from this site that is usually
associated with the droppings from bulls. The site layout is terrible with broken icons,
company information that is hard to find (doesn't everyone put the e-mail address in the
footer? If not you should because people shouldn't have to search to find out how to reach
you), inaccurate ranking results and to top it off they open a fresh browser for a link
off the site!
To sum up this service for rankings it's useless, about all it is good for is an easy
way to figure out how a specific engine will respond to a change in a query. For example
case sensitivity. Even the alleged tips are misleading as they try to mix you up in
regards to well known and documented tips for search engine placement.
First Update to rankthis.com
Rankthis has actually improved their accuracy to some degree and have been purchased by
another web promotion company. I am going to watch this one closely as the company
which purchased the site has in the past used misinformation and totally false information
to promote their products.
Whether this is just poor research or done on purpose is debatable and I don't care to
judge them! I am just passing along the information to help you make the choices you need
to when using these services.
Did-it.com it is tough to get an accurate picture
here because they only allow one word to search for so chances are they aren't going to
find you. This company is also using some rather dubious means of promoting itself. I
found out about this one from a spam from them after submitting to Yahoo! When I received
my notice from Yahoo there was a mention that sites were being stripped from the new
listings page and to not contact them about it because they had nothing to do with it.
The mail from did-it came a few days after the mail from Yahoo so I can only assume
that this company is one of the offenders. A post at HWG to let other members know about
these services resulted in me being contacted by members asking I not purchase any
materials or help to inform people about this company as a protest against
Update to Did-it
Do not use this service for any purpose unless you like a steady flow of
SPAM originating from them. I have yet to receive a free update from them in regards to my
ranking. Four attempts to be removed from the list has got me nowhere. I have recently
been getting get rich quick and mlm spam from different sources but since these
unscrupulous spammers sell lists I can only presume that this is the source since I only
participate in private lists, no newsgroups and don't go to free ad sites. The only other
possibility is it is originating from a free submission service I used a while ago. More
on that another time. Once again, AVOID THESE SPAMMERS THEY"RE WORSE THEN THE
resource for promotion info with good results from the search engine placement checker.
The report is mailed to you and is similar to WebPosition Agent without the versatility,
trend or alert reports.
Update to Scorecheck
Like with did-it be careful about using this one as even though I hadn't
been there in months I kept getting email from them (1 for each keyword). I'm not saying
it is even close to the problem with did-it, I'm just very protective of an email box that
receives on average 100's of emails a day! Anything unwanted is a bit of a nuisance. I do
commend them for removing me from the list immediately!
