A reader asked me serveral months ago if I knew of software to track local search standings. Advanced Web Ranking had just implemented the feature (after a year of hounding) and I told the reader about it with a caution that I had not yet tried it.
He just took the time to email his comments:
Itâ€™s been a while, but Iâ€™m the person who wrote you asking if you knew of a good local seo tracking software option. Â You recommended Advanced Web Ranking. Â I wanted to let you know that their software is working great! Â When I first tested it, the local search tracking had some bugs and did not report the ranks correctly. They have fixed those issues though and the software works great to get results from Google Maps and Yahoo Local Business. Â They do not yet have local search tracking for Live (MSN) or Ask, but said they plan to add those as some point.
I subsequently have used the feature and it has become quite useful for automated tracking. The software works on Mac, Windows or Linux and pricing starts at $99.
Are there other products that will automatically track local search standings?Local Seo Tracking Software by Mike Blumenthal
