also above it was mentioned that they use different datacenters - i assume this will work itself out gradually after each major update, index, etc. ???

We've used Agent Web Ranking to create reports on how our sites are doing in the search engines for a couple of years now. We've just been reminded that we are going to have to pay for another year now.
The program itself is excellent, except we have to manually go through each of our customers sites (no batch process, which is a pain for lots of sites). But before I pay the cash (it isn't cheap) are there any others that do a good job? We haven't found another decent one yet.

I worked in SEO in RankWrite days (if anyone here still remembers the early days), am now coming back to the field with my own company making sites for Asian tourism companies and also destination directories.
In those days we used WPG as there wasn't much else out there.
Now I see there are a few other programs, some of which look good if you believe the hype. I don't have the time & patience to work through them all, so am looking for advice & recommendations please.
My main areas of concern are:
>> Keyword research - software or use a service?
>> Site optimization - yes I know content, content, content <g>, but I found WPG really useful to check all the details and little things one sometimes forgets. Especially as will be running dozens of sites.
>> SERP tracking: software or service? Need to see what each site is doing by major keywords, especially need to be alerted to SERP changes and trends.
>> Traffic tracking & analysis. Just before I left the field WPG changed over to a new tracking system using hitslink - seemed sophisticated at the time but I'm hoping new software or systems will be far superior. I have a few specific requirements here:
a> marketing related reports for clients whose sites we've done, especially analysis of visitor source and country
b> watching surfing patterns through sites to check & adjust usability
c> exit link reports for web directories where clients are paying to be on our site - I need to report each month how many visitors we sent them, and preferably also what countries these folks came from (cannnot be via a redirect as the direct links we give them will help their SE rankings)
I see WPG is still around, also Web CEO looks interesting plus a few others. What do you up-to-date users recommend?
All constructive recommendations and help greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

I believe we have some other discussions around here that you might want to do a quick search for.

Like Jill said ,you may want to do some reading into who likes what and for what reasons. All in all SEO is to most of us is the satisfaction of helping to improve the clients current situation with our tested methodologies of what we feel is appropriate for there sites. I like some have very good feeling for some software, and they work very well but only as a support system to our strategies.
Go get Um!

I searched for a way to find where exactly I was for my keywords, found a site that let me look for free, but it only tells you if you are in the first 30, which sadly I am not. I would like to know because if I'm 6 trillionth it would be sensible to give up on that keyword phrase entirely. There must be a way to check but maybe it costs...
Aargh. My new kitten is helping with the typing here, so it's getting a little tricky
