Over the years I have done most of my rank checking manually, and beleive me when I say this, its a PAIN! With that said, I no longer have to do that task :) our new SEO does, but I do not want him tracking down hundreds of keywords manually if he does not need to, I can think of a lot of other things he could be doing with his time.
My question is, do these SaaS web checkers work? Do the stand alone web rank checkers work? More importantly, do they cause any harm to Google serps?
Its been a while since i have frequented this particular board, but I recall there were a couple of them that did cause problems.
I am not sure if WebmasterWorld has TOS on providing a SaaS or Stand alone app, but if they allow it I would greatly appreciate any insight. If the moderators do not allow it, could someone PM me on a place to look at? I am not too concerned with pricing.
