Speed Testing Workflow

To get the most accurate results, we’ve carried out the testing on a just installed shining-new Windows 7 Professional OS.

Besides, to ensure equal entry conditions, we used a quick, fresh proxy for each of the tests run on each of the tools. As IBP uses Internet Explorer to access search engines, proxy settings for all IBP tests were entered through this browser.

So, check out what the comparison has shown.

P.S. As not all the tested tools provide you with time stats and results count, we had to time their work with external time keeping tools and count the number of results manually. That is why proof screenshot were provided only where it’s possible.

Test 1. Rank checking with default settings

The first test compares rank checking speed.

Using each SEO tool, we’ve checked website rankings for 50 keywords in 3 search engines. The safety settings (such as proxy rotation or delays between search engine queries) where left untouched – in their default state.

Test 1.1. Rank checking with minimum safety features

In the second part of rank checking speed test, we’re using each SEO tool to check website rankings for 50 keywords in 3 search engines once again. Yet this time the safety settings in each tool were minimized to increase the check speed.

Test 2. Backlink research: speed + number of found backlinks

In the third test, we’ve charged each tool with finding the maximum possible number of backlinks pointing to a website. The search safety settings were left unchanged.

Test 3. Website structure analysis: speed + number of pages

The last test deals with checking website structure; this means that each SEO tool was to find all pages of a given website in the minimum possible time. Market Samurai and IBP SEO software have no such functionality at all, so the test was run for SEO PowerSuite’s WebSite Auditor, WebCEO and Advanced Web Ranking. The search safety settings were left unchanged.

To sum it up

So, as the testing proves, SEO PowerSuite:

  • Checks rankings faster than any of the 4 other tested tools
  • Proves the most resistant against search engine blocks
  • Collects the biggest number of backlinks in the shortest time
  • Provides the most accurate site structure analysis in the shortest time

Now, as you know, for the sake of fair testing all checks were run on special equal conditions. The test passed, but what results can the just-revealed leader show you in real life, without testing restrictions? The exhibition tests show, for instance, that checking your site’s rankings for 50 keywords in 3 search engines (which is up to 1500 times to address the search engines) with new high-speed SEO PowerSuite can take as little as 43 seconds. Believe it or not, but that is the truth:

    If these pieces of information are all true, I think I have to use SEO PowerSuite instead of this software I am using right now on my seo campaign. Thanks for sharing this review.

    SEO has become an indispensable part of online marketing. Effective use of this tool can give wings to your online business while not using it rightly can play havoc with it. Although having a company website with relevant content and great look is very important but it is not everything.
