🥇AWR Cloud Tutorial
We’ve included a few video demonstrations below that explains everything about the Advanced Web Ranking interface, including the keyword ranking, links, Google integration, Reports, Social, Crawling, and Settings sections.
Some of the useful features outlined in the video are the following aspects:
Overall keyword distribution: Highlighting where all of your keywords sit based on their position. It also clearly summarizes how many keywords moved up in rankings, and how many moved down, which really provides some great insight into where to concentrate your future SEO efforts.
Search Engine Comparison: This not only provides you with keyword ranking information, relating to your own site on multiple search engines, but also your main competitors. Tracking both the position and movement over a set period of time.
This is fantastic when an algorithm update has occurred, to see if any competitors have moved up in rankings when others have moved down, so further investigations can be made.
Website Auditor: It’s extremely important to keep on top of SEO issues, and actively monitor them. That’s exactly what AWR Cloud’s website auditor function does, so you can get notified of new issues and resolve them before they begin causing any organic SERP ranking declines.

Conclusion – What’s Our Verdict?
AWR Cloud is an extremely reliable and affordable keyword rank tracker, hence why they have so many active customers.
I personally used it on a daily basis whilst working at MediaCom (Group M agency) and we were particularly happy with it.
I’ve personally used a lot of different rank trackers, and this is one of the best around for the price.
Given the wide variety of packages available, it’s clear that Advanced Web Ranking has deliberately tried to accommodate for every person, business, agency’s budget, and needs.
Not to mention, there aren’t many keyword tracking tools that provide a 30-day free trial, with a support team that are very active.
Now we’ve used some questionable rank trackers in the past, and AWR is not one of them.
We use both AWR and Accuranker (with some of our clients owning their own rank trackers) and we like them both equally… Although AWR Cloud is substantially more affordable.
If you have a more conservative budget, we recommend AWR Cloud. Although like we said, we do like Accuranker too.
We have to give AWR Cloud a 5/5!
⭐AWR Cloud VS Accuranker, Which is Best?
Accuranker is another keyword track tracking tool, and one that we’ve been using for a few years, alongside AWR.
It has very similar features, however, when directly comparing them against each other, it’s clear that AWR cloud is considerably cheaper overall, by approximately 75%.
You can see this, as we’ve included the Accuranker Pricing video below.
Although the prices may look similar, Accuranker is priced in Euros, and AWR is in dollars, and AWR’s packages contains nearly double the credits for keyword tracking.
