Desktop Software is So 1990s

Why We Haven’t Made Another Desktop Rank Tracker

Everytime a SEO guru is getting acquainted with a new software on the market, same question arises: is that a desktop one? The question is as old as time, thus I decided to make a separate post to answer it.

We’ve asked this question ourselves at the very beginning of a launch and the answer was "NO WAY!" Not because it is difficult to support – just because we care of our users.

We have this luxury of moment: when Firelink was developed, 5 iPhones were already invented, and the headache with legal/illegal software users has gone far to 1990s.

So let us go point by point.

Rank Tracker: Desktop or Online

Why you might think to need a desktop tool:

1. Save money?

Don't forget to add to the price of a desktop tool:

  • proxy cost
  • your time to: collect positions, backup, fix problems, create reports manually
  • additional licenses if you want to use it at several computers
  • yearly subscription cost to have the latest version

Not so cheap, heh?

2. Don't want to share your keyword list?

Check privacy page of your online rank tracker. They say that your data is safe and provide pretty reasonable grounds.

If you don't trust them why trust the tool that is installed at your computer and has access to Internet. You are risking much more than just a keywords list. :)

Paranoid mode: add more keywords to distract enemies and wear a foil hat just in case.

3. It has a feature "X"

Contact us – who knows, maybe this feature is in our roadmap already, or can be easily implemented to your account personally?

Still not convinced?
