Is There An Equivalent to The McDar KW Analysis Tool?
It's been down and I'm adrift without it

I've grown to depend on the McDar Keyword Analysis Tool. It allows me to evaluate which ranking factors needed optimizing in order to make a site search better-- links vs. content.

But it's been down for a couple of months now and I can find no news on when it may return.

Does anybody know of an equivalent tool?

Or a couple of tools that can be used to get equivalent intelligence?

I could never figure out why they just let that site die a slow death other than the fact it probably doesn't convert any traffic.

Still, they should probably just take it down rather than let it linger.

Apparently outages have happened before but they came back up. It's a shame, though, because with the tool you can interpret a site's standing against its competition, how they got to the top, and much what you have to do to get there.

Then just evaluate the top ranked sites' on-page content and you can learn a lot.

I suppose you could go to several other tools and cobble them together to get something similar.

But the allinanchor rankings for the top 10 G rankings are like gold.

All things Mcdar have "Account Suspended" on them now.

Been like that for almost a week. Their phone number is also disconnected.

Where did they go?

I was just searching for mcdar on Google there and spied this thread. Real shame to see such a great tool vanish.

I'm devastated because I relied on their datacentre check tool thingy - does anyone know of an equivalent?
(the one where you could see where sites ranked for a keyword across a whole bunch of datacentres?)
