Rank Ranger is a service that does pretty much everything you’d expect it to. Somehow, they’re able to integrate a ton of different services and reports without making SEO feel like an afterthought.
I didn’t test out any of the SEM, or social, or other integrations, as my needs are still just for rank tracking.
To get the most out of Rank Ranger you need to be creating custom graphs, widgets, and reports, most of which I can’t be bothered with.
It seems like a good product, but there are simpler, and more actionable platforms that require fewer clicks, and have optimized interfaces (AWR and Nightwatch) that ask for less per month in subscription fees. The problem is there isn’t anything unique here, and that means nothing to help it stand out amongst the crowd.
It’s solid, but to a fault.
