    I just did a test of the new software and the following is the results. CID#5087689606563165067 – Fred Loya Insurance Mission St, San Francisco Ca
    Out of 16 keywords that I checked for this listing, 3 of them were right on the money, 4 of them were + or – 4 places or less difference and the rest were way off. Just so you know I put the keyword first and then the city of San Francisco Ca in both of the search bars. I will try it one more time but with results like this, it isn’t worth the time spent on it. One result that was really disappointing to me was for the key phrase “online insurance company san francisco ca” My client has a 1 box on the result page and the software put me in position #7. I haven’t given up yet but right now it isn’t looking good. If I am doing something wrong, please let me know because I really like the concept of this software and I would use the shit out of it if I could rely on the results.

      Hi Ralph, thanks for sharing your results so quickly. I concur with your results. Very strange, I’ll investigate further.

      I agree with you that results are everything, and that’s why this software hasn’t been progressed into a full version until the simple beta version works for everyone.

  4. Thanks Aaron, works great in Hong Kong too!

    This is the second set of results from testing I did. This time I opened up 2 tabs and I did the search with the city before and after the key word. This one is for a plumber with a CID – 15966455069348295035 in Wake Forest NC. First off, it didn’t seem to matter whether the city was before or after the key word, the results from the search engine was the same. All the results from the rank tracker were with the city in FRONT of the keyword. Out of 17 searches 8 came back exactly the same and once again I had a 1 box that the software didn’t pick up. These results were better than the last time but I still don’t think that less than 50% is good enough. I sure would like to hear from some of the other beta testers to find out if they are getting the same results as I did.

    At the request of Aaron I ran a new test under the following guidelines and just so you know the previous tests were ran in Google Chrome with Google instant on and I had the amount of results set to 300.

    “I wonder what results you get if when you are checking your results in Google that you aren’t logged in to Google and use a different browser than what you normally use, eg. Safari or Chrome if you use Firefox normally
    You should turn off Google Instant, and in advanced options set the amount of results to 100 per page.
    This is what local rank tracker does and I think that’s where the differences you are seeing are coming from.”

    Here are the results of the test I ran with Firefox, Google instant turned off and the amount of results set to 100. The CID- 13687439198655410896 for Fred Loya Insurance hayward ca and I put city and state after the keywords in both search bars.
    Out of 20 key words, 15 were perfect. I had two 1 box listings and it picked both of them up. Now you have my full attention and I think we are on to something. I use Firefox, Google chrome, and Internet Explore and now I am going to have to experiment with all these variables to see which one gets the best results. I already know that results can vary a tiny bit with different browsers and I personally don’t think that was the issue as much as it was the Google Instant, that I turned off, that made the difference.
    One tiny observation from me. It has been a few days now since the update has been released for beta testing and I don’t see many comments on results. Everyone was given the software for free to try out and I don’t think that is to much to ask for you to give some feedback to Aaron as to the results your seeing. Do you realize how much time this software will save us if he gets it nailed down to a percent of correctness that we can live with? Where are all you guys that posted comments when it first came out. I just think that since he was kind enough to let almost anyone that wanted to beta test the software, that we could at least give an honest review, even if you don’t like it anything is better than nothing. I personally appreciate the effort Aaron, keep up the good work. I wish I had the talent to create this kind of stuff.

      Thanks Ralph. Most users won’t publicly list their results and will share them privately with me via the support area. My programmer and I are looking at one more option to really nail down the accuracy of the results with the default configuration of the majority of Google users.
